Astrologically speaking, this moon is in the sign of Virgo, which alludes to the energies of organization, practicality, boundaries, and meticulousness. With Mercury
acting as the ruling planet of this sign, clarity in communication, as well as speech and writing, comes to the forefront of our consciousness. Virgo is a perfectionist of sorts, but can become jaded and cold when things don’t work out as planned. Absorbing the positive attributes of the sign, and the lessons within these energies – allow the Virgo moon to shine light on what areas of your life need more organization, and don’t be afraid to create boundaries around certain situations that aren’t in your best interest.
In Native American culture, this moon is known as the Worm Moon, metaphorically representing nature’s resurrection into light after the darkness of winter. With Virgo helping us shine light on the areas in our life that need more organization and focus, allow the metaphor of the Worm Moon to allow you to resurrect into your next best self by concentrating on how/what the next “season of self” looks like to you. Spring forward into the warmer months, and place intention on what dream/desires you’d like to see rise up, and bloom.
The Storm Moon
, as its known in Paganism, may reference the notion that March “comes in like a lion and out like a lamb”, and allowing this idea to serve as a mantra is a reminder to find the balance of power and peace. We are each a force in our own right, and the power of our mind is limitless, but the power is within you, and you alone. Remember that strength and confidence will bring you to the door you wish to open on the path to your next best self, but to unlock it – the key is to also maintain a gentle heart. Balance the heart and the mind, and all of the answers you seek will reveal themselves to you, like a rainbow after a storm.
