What is March’s full Worm Moon? What it means for your zodiac sign

Spring has finally arrived! Get ready to get out and celebrate the Worm Moon as we bid farewell to the cold and dark winter.

Celebrity astrologer Kyle Thomas, who is known for his cosmic guidance among celebrities, businesses and online influencers, spoke to “Good Morning America” about the best ways to take advantage of this powerful lunar event.

First, let’s break down the meaning of the Worm Moon.

When is the Worm Moon in 2024?

The Worm Moon will arrive on March 25, 2024 at 3 a.m. ET according to the Old Farmers’ Almanac.

Why is it called the Worm Moon?

The Old Farmers’ Almanac, which first began publishing the names for the full moons in the 1930s, states that some refer to the full Moon in March as the “Worm Moon” because earthworms are thought to appear around this time as the ground thaws from winter. According to NASA, southern Native American tribes specifically call it this due to the “earthworm casts that appear as the ground thaws.”

For similar reasons, other tribes named the moon based on different signs of spring, according to NASA. For example, some northern Native American tribes referred to the March full moon as the “Crow Moon” because the cawing of crows signals the end of winter.

As the Old Farmers’ Almanac states, “Many northern cultures have end-of-winter names for the March full Moon, such as the ‘Snow Crust Moon’ or ‘Hard Crust on the Snow Moon’ from the Ojibwe and Chippewa tribes near the Great Lakes. During March, deep snow thaws during warm days but refreezes during cold nights, creating a brittle crust on top of the snow.”

What zodiac sign is the Worm Moon in March?

The zodiac sign for each full moon is determined by where the moon is positioned in the night sky relative to the different astrological signs. Each year the moon will shift, resulting in different characteristics surrounding the moon, according to Thomas.

This year, the Worm Moon is positioned as a full moon in Libra, an air zodiac sign that is represented by the symbolic images of the scales and balance. “This shows their innate desire for fairness, justice and logic,” Thomas said, adding that Libra is a charming, social and kind zodiac.

Rituals and manifestations to try during the Worm Moon

The full moon was dubbed the "Worm Moon" because earthworms are thought to appear around this time as the ground thaws from winter.

Many ancient cultures and religions celebrate celestial cycles, including finding ways to honor and harness the power of the full moon.

To make best use of this intense energy, many astrologers believe that a full moon is a great time to manifest your dreams.

Thomas said because Libra is a zodiac sign deeply rooted in partnership and union, meditations focused around relationships personally or professionally would be quite potent.

Due to Libra being an air sign, using communication, mantras, or journaling can be excellent tools for manifestation.

“Libra is also ruled by Venus, the planet of love, so using the color pink can be helpful,” Thomas added. “Using rose quartz, incense or flowers can also aid you.”

Potential meditations, mantras or journal prompts:

  • I am ready to build my relationships.
  • My heart and mind are open to others.
  • I manifest healthy partnerships and connections at all times.
  • I have healthy boundaries in my relationships.
