Moon Day 24

In the European tradition, this day is of no account and is considered to be absolutely neutral, but Veda and Avesta emphasise that it increases physical energy and sexuality, and inclines to arguments, risks and rivalry. It is not recommended to start anything, especially with the hopes of significant financial results.

Full Worm Moon (March)

At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.
