March's Two Full Moons Empty March's Two Full Moons

March is a special month, not only because it’s when the spring equinox occurs, but also because it will host two full Moons this year—one on the 1st and another on the 31st.

March 1:
March’s Full Moon was traditionally called the Full Worm Moon by Native Americans who used lunar phases to track the seasons.

At the time of this Moon, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting the return of robins and migrating birds—a true sign of spring.

Roots start to push their way up through the soil, and the Earth experiences a re-birth as it awakens from its winter slumber.

March31:
When a second full Moon occurs in March, it is called the Full Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

The second full Moon in a single month is more generally called a Blue Moon

Looking forward to these clapping

For any pagans/wiccans out there:
''For magical purposes, many modern Pagans consider the full moon to include the day before and the day after a full moon, for a total of three days.''

''Full Moon. This is a time when the Moon is at its most powerful, and the magic most potent. Performing any positive spell at this time will achieve good results.''

March 31, 2018 – presents the second and final Blue Moon of the year. By popular acclaim, a Blue Moon is defined as the second of two full moons to occur in one calendar month. January had two full moons. Now March does, too.

Two Blue Moons in one year seem to belie the famous statement: Once in a Blue Moon. And in recent years – with more than one definition for Blue Moons – Blue Moons seem to happen pretty often. Yet it’s indeed quite rare to have two Blue Moons in a single calendar year. It last happened in 1999 and won’t happen again until 2037.

A calendar year only embraces two Blue Moons if there are 13 full moons in one calendar year – and, in addition, February has no full moon at all. That’s exactly what happens in 2018. February didn’t have a full moon, while January and March both have two full moons. Thus – in 2018 – the full moons on January 31 and March 31 both count as Blue Moons.

February is the only calendar month that can go without a full moon. Prior to 2018, we last had a February with no full moon 19 years ago, in 1999. And – as you might expect – we also had two Blue Moons in 1999, on January 31 and March 31. Nineteen years from now – in the year 2037 – February again will have no full moon, and the months of January and March will each feature two full moons.
