Tonight is the first of two full moons for this new month of March- how exciting! This year we’ve had not one, but two months with two sets of full moons– January and March- which won’t happen again until 2037. This extremely rare occurrence is yet another sign of how powerful of a year 2018 is, full of magic and manifestation.
As the last full moon of the winter, it is referred to as the “worm moon.” Why, you ask? Since spring is just a few weeks away, this moon symbolizes the rebirth of nature and the earth. Just as the earthworms start to poke up from the ground, the leaves begin to grow, flowers bloom, and life begins again. Spring is a fresh start for both the earth and the humans who walk it, so this is a special moon to say goodbye to winter and start a brand new season. Our next full moon will happen on the very last day of the month- March 31- and will be known as the blue moon (more on that in weeks to come).
If you’ve had a rough winter, have faith that spring will bring forth the fruits of your labor. It’s been a rocky road since the August eclipse, but thankfully February’s new moon solar eclipse has brought a more peaceful, flowing energy!
I’ve spoken to many friends about the same topic- feeling stuck in careers, relationships, or situations that are no longer working out for them. They’ve all acknowledged they want something different, yet aren’t sure what to do. I have reminded them that these are signs from the universe that their heart is guiding them on a new path- and I’ve begun to see their lives change. New opportunities have arose and decisions have been made for them that are out of their control. As the pieces start coming together, the struggle starts to make more sense; the struggle is the lesson. Before we can move on to something better, we must first learn the lesson and pass the test.
When one door closes, another door opens. Don’t try to push the old door back open or break the lock. Leave it shut.
There are many ways to embrace the power of the full moon. I always set my cards and crystals out to recharge; it’s a great night to sage, take a salt bath, and set aside time for meditation. Self-care is necessary for everyone’s well being on a daily basis, but is especially important during a full moon! Take it easy on yourself, enjoy the evening, and remember to continue to look forward- not back.
As spring approaches, I’m excited for all of the new opportunities in my life. I got a fresh haircut, new shades, and even started a new job! It really does feel as if one cycle ended and an entirely new chapter began with the last new moon.
Feeling recharged after a great trip to Denver, I’m so grateful for wonderful friends, work I love, and being able to connect with so many mindful people. We’ve got the moon on our side!
