This moon is traditionally also referred to as the Flower Moon. However I prefer Blossom Moon, as a number of North American indigenous tribes referred to it. Blossom Moon, to me, better encompasses all things that explode with life in the spring. Flowers are beautiful, I keep my share, but they are not everything.
I do apologize – I am a day late with my full moon ode this month, but alas life does happen at times, and I have not been in a good frame of mind to write until today. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy.
The Worm Moon, third of the calendar year, occurs close to Ostara, which celebrates the equinox. It traditionally heralded the end of winter and welcomed the rebirth of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. In addition it is a Super Moon in 2021, signifying it’s close proximity to Earth during its elliptical orbit.
Days are longer and brighter as the sun awakens from it’s month’s long nap and flexes muscles slowly like a morning stretch that tests the body without inviting a cramp
Birds are restless and waiting for any opportunity to share a cheerful chirp or even flash their wings in exuberance over the upcoming change of seasons
We trace the sun across our horizon and watch it’s course over and over as we measure moments, solstices and equinoxes in addition to all the days in between that measure our lives and define our years
Once again we steal the sun from our neighbors south of the equator with the promise to return it in six more months when they have likely grown weary of the gloom, the cold, and the dreary muck that comprises the depths of hard winter on this giant blue marble careening through space in it’s captive course
Enjoy your days, don’t wish for future ones No one is guaranteed the promise of tomorrow since it never arrives, but rather becomes another today which will give way to an addition on a mountain of yesterdays that comprise where we have been.\
Today Today is the day that matter so live it to the fullest, then freely relinquish it that scrapyard of yesterdays
So often we get caught up in the expectations and demands of others, regardless of their reasonableness. Remember, when you are doing your best for others then you are doing enough. There are those who will never be satisfied, no matter how much you give.
Take care of yourself, for if you fall victim to the energy vampires you will not be available for those who truly need assistance.
The Snow Moon, second full moon of the calendar year and first full moon of the Lunar New Year. It is the only full moon that does not appear every year. Instead every 19 years February skips a full moon and then both January and March have two full moons, a phenomenon known as Double Blue Moon.
