Yes, we’re sneaking up on the Ides of March, which simply means the time in each month when the moon is full. This year, it’s March 16th. The Algonquin tribes call this the Worm Moon because it’s around the time when worms and their castings begin to appear again. It’s known as the “Sap Moon” for those that tap their maples.
Whatever you call it, this moon means that spring is just around the corner. Persephone will be released from Hades to make the world blossom and grow again. And we’ll be very happy to see this particular winter gone!
Hang in there!
