Discover The Spiritual Meaning Of The March Full Worm Moon

march full worm moon spiritual meaning

Have you ever wondered what the spiritual meaning of the march full worm moon is and how you can celebrate it with ritual?

We currently live on a solar calendar, with 12 “man-made” months and 365-ish days in a year. But long before we got here, the ancient native people used to live on a lunar calendar, in moons rather than months.

Because the full moon is a big, bright sphere of light that illuminates the night sky, it was an easy way to track time. With each full moon that came, another “moon” had passed, and a new one had begun. Each of those full moons was given a different name depending on the season and what was happening in nature. This is why there are many names for each of the moons.

The term “worm moon” applies to the entire length of the moon cycle, from this full moon to the next, which is approximately 29 days.

Here are the common names for all the full moons throughout the year:

What is the march full worm moon?

The March full worm moon is a gentle reminder that spring is almost here, and with it comes a rebirth of life, energy, and abundance on Earth. Flowers start to shoot up and bloom, bringing vibrant pops of color to gardens and public spaces. Birds sing their songs in the morning, and the sun is waking. The dark time of the year is drawing to a close, and with it, we gradually wave goodbye to the cold winter and hello to longer, (slightly) warmer days.

As the Earth begins to literally thaw, worms start to wriggle through the soil underground, creating space and recycling waste so that plants have the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. Birds will also pluck worms and other grubs from the ground to nourish themselves. This is why March’s full moon is known as the full worm moon. Another theory is that beetle larvae start to emerge from the thawing of bark trees and other places.

The March full worm moon is sometimes known as the eagle moon, the goose moon, the crow moon, the sugar moon, the full crust moon, the melting moon, and the death moon.

What sign is the full worm moon in?

The March full worm moon is in the sign of Libra, opposite where the sun currently is in Aries.

The zodiac sign that the moon is in will always affect its energy and flavor, as will the other planetary placements in the solar system (including the sun). I love using astrology to guide me when planning a full moon ritual, choosing which crystals to work with, and decorating my altar.

So the March full worm moon 2024 will be woven with the energy of Libra and Aries.

The spiritual meaning of a worm moon

1. Change begins beneath the surface

If there’s one key spiritual meaning of the full worm moon, it’s the idea that all the hard work worms do to create change in the ecosystem and feed the plants happens underground, meaning we can’t see it, yet it’s happening. And this is true when it comes to creating change in our lives. It always begins within, and no one can see it, but you will feel it.

So the full worm moon is a reminder that change is here and asks you to embrace it. But this has to happen internally before you see the fruits of that change in your external world.

And change is often uncomfortable because it requires us to get out of our comfort zone and do something we’ve never done before. But this is how we grow and evolve.

2. Allow things to thaw & shift

As a world, we have gotten out of living seasonally, but nature offers us great insight into how to live more in flow with the Earth. As the world literally thaws and we move out of winter, think about how you can let go and allow things to thaw within you. This makes space for new ideas, people, opportunities, and emotions to be revealed and embraced.

But you’ll have to ground into the Earth and be prepared to get a little dirty if you want to fully tap into this spiritual meaning of the March full worm moon.

3. Time for a spring clean

The past couple of moons have been ripe for clearing the old and making space for the new. But the March full moon, in particular, is an apt time to have a physical, mental, and energetic declutter because we are right on the cusp of the spring equinox (also called Ostara).

Have you accumulated any objects, patterns, or behaviors that no longer serve you? Think about your physical and digital spaces (your computer and cloud storage). Every time I have a clear-out like this, I love to burn some herbs to cleanse and purify the stagnant, negative energy from my space.

You can think of this like weeding a garden. This is essential because it clears valuable space so that you can plant new seeds.

How to work with the full worm moon

I love to celebrate the full moon with a ritual. As mentioned, I use the zodiac and the spiritual meaning of each moon to inspire my sacred ceremony. Some things you’ll want to do every full moon, like meditate, take a full moon bath, moon bathe, charge your crystals, make moon water, do a tarot reading, etc. But you can infuse each of those practices with the energetic vibe of the full moon.

For example, you might add a crystal into your bath water that helps you work with Libra’s vibration or journal on your goals and intentions for this moon and beyond.

Here are some march full worm moon rituals to try at home:

  • A spring clean ritual (use your guidance with this, there is no right or wrong)
  • Light a scented candle, burn some incense, put on a diffuser, or boil some lemon and rosemary on the stove to fill your home with a fresh, spring-like aroma
  • Take a full moon bath (and make your own bath tea)
  • Make some seed bombs (place in your garden or give them as gifts)
  • Sit outdoors and “earth” into the ground
  • Moonbathe (yes, it’s the same as sunbathing, but you swap the sun for the moon and let her light nourish you!)
