(TMU) — The first super-moon of the year and also the last full moon of winter, is set to be the biggest and brightest moon of 2020. Although reaching its full peak at 1:48pm EDT on Monday, March 9, the Worm Moon will appear full from Sunday, March 8 to Tuesday evening, March 10. Weather permitting, the super-moon would be visible throughout this period for sky gazers to enjoy.

According to NASA, the full moon in March was named the Worm Moon by the indigenous tribes of the northern and eastern US after the earthworm casts (fertilizer produced by the worms) which appear during the thaw before spring. Although this is the most widely used name for the March moon, it also goes by Sap Moon, Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sugar Moon and Lenten Moon.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac explains: “At this time of the year, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting robins and other birds to feed — a true sign of spring.”

“The most common name for March 9th full Moon is the Full Worm Moon. At this time of the year, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting robins and other birds to feed—a true sign of spring”. Sounds nice, right? All butterflies and spring flowers…🌸🌷🦋Now let’s look at it from the point of view of a Lymie… 💥 💥 💥 🐛 Parasites, spirochete’s…they’re worms. They’ve taken up residence and we are their host. The full moon is associated with higher parasite activity. Parasites are more active and reproductive coinciding with your circadian rhythm. During the full moon, we produce less melatonin and more serotonin. You know… Melatonin? The stuff that makes you sleep? Parasites feed off of seratonin, too. Hang on tight – this could be a rough one! Let me know how you’re doing 💚💚💚💚🌕😷 #fullmoon #supermoon #wormmoon #lymedisease #lymediseasewarrior #parasites #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #mcas #toxicmold #spoonie #depression #insomnia

The March super Worm Moon is the first of three supermoons, with the Pink Moon on April 8 and the Flower Moon on May 7, waiting in the wings for their turn to dazzle.

A supermoon occurs when the full moon is closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit which makes the moon appear larger and brighter than usual.

Early rising sky gazers may already have noticed Mars, Jupiter and Saturn towards the east just before dawn. According to NASA, the trio will be visible throughout the month of March so set your alarm for an early wakeup and enjoy!

For Our Spiritual Followers.. 

On the astrological side—if you’re into this kind of thing—the March full supermoon is in the sign of Virgo and will be quite powerfulThose with Virgo’s in their lives will be familiar with their ability to drive you crazy with their energy and this full moon will echo that energy, and then some! To make it even more interesting, Mercury is Retrograde in the air sign Aquarius so be prepared for a drastic wake-up call. Use the moon energy of patience and virtue to remain calm and keep the Virgo energy in check. While this Full Moon may shine a light and help uncover some new truths and insights it may guide us to pay attention to our health and attend to niggling symptoms or negative patterns we keep repeating.

Avoid jumping to conclusions with whatever the moon may highlight for you during this time. We should trust your instincts and intuition during this time and not allow our emotions to cloud the truth.

AstrologyKing summarizes this Full Moon by saying, “This is a good full moon for overcoming your fears. This is also a good full moon to acknowledge your own weaknesses and forgive yourself. This will help you grow spiritually, morally and ethically. Removing guilt and self-pity will lead to a happier and more contented life.”
