March 12th marks the full moon for the month. It is known as the Worm Moon because at this time, the earth softens and the worms reappear, signaling the return of the robins, a symbol of spring. Falling near the Spring Equinox, it is a time of rebirth and renewal. As the full moon signifies completion, this full moon marks the end of one phase (winter) and the start of another (spring).
This full moon falls under the zodiac sign of Virgo. Sweet, practical, and hardworking, Virgos dedicate themselves to the service of others. They are healers, wishing to fix things/situations/people/etc. Practical, they usually have a game plan for everything they do. With the moon under this sign, it is a good time for healing. The affects of the recent solar eclipse may have awaken some deep changes for you, and now that the dust has settled, it is time to move forward and grow. Utilize Virgo’s energy to heal you and allow you to come up with a plan of action for the future. What steps do you need to take in order to heal and grow? Like any Virgo would do, make a list!
