The March Full Moon, which falls on March 9 this year, is a night of awe and magic. The Full Crow Moon was known by northern Native American tribes as the end of winter, when crows cawed nonstop. It is also known as the Full Crust Moon because the snow covers become crusted from dropping during the day and freezing at night. The full moon is a time when we have the most energy to express ourselves, strengthen our relationships, let go of the toxicity in our lives, and make good changes. When the temperature slowly begins to rise and the ground begins to melt, robins return, and earthworms emerge, you know March’s Full Moon is approaching.

MARCH FULL MOON HISTORY

The moon in March is typically a “super moon.” The word was coined in 1979 by astrologer Richard Nolle, who stated that it refers to either a new or full moon that is close to the Earth. The Full Moon in March is also known as the Crow, Worm, Crust, Sap, and Sugar Moon. Crow Moon was given by northwestern tribes in the United States after they observed that crows frequently cawed during the moon.

Other organisations dubbed it the Crust Moon because of the crust of snow that forms when it freezes at night. Others refer to it as the Sap or Sugar Moon because the moon caused an early spring, which is the season for tapping maple trees. In the Jewish calendar, the full moon occurs in the middle of Nisan, which is associated with Passover. This festival also commemorates the Jewish people’s liberation from slavery in Egypt. This full moon coincides with Holi, which honours the triumph of good over evil.

The full moon is known as Madin Poya or Medin in Sri Lanka, and it commemorates the Buddha’s first encounter with his father after attaining enlightenment. And, for Muslims, the full moon occurs in the midst of Sha’ban, the month preceding Ramadan.
