Full Moon Dreamers ~ Full Worm Moon

Thursday, March 19, 2009
Full Moon Dreamboards ~ a creative way to express what we wish to manifest in a particular month. Each month has a name, a this becomes the theme or inspiration for the dreamboard. For more on Full Moon Dreamboards, visit Jamie's site.

Full Worm Moon ~ March ~ As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.

Ahhhh. Spring begins to spring ~ the earth softens and begins nourishing life once more. Its a rebirth, of sorts ~ when what's within the earth (i.e. beneath its surface) burrows and sprouts its way through the surface. Perhaps I could take this calling from Mother Earth to soften somewhat, and allow some of that tenderness to reveal itself to others? Its what I wish to manifest in myself this month ~ to tear down the hard ass act ... and reveal a little of the vulnerable me. I suppose I'd like to draw myself out of my self. Or maybe its a pushing or purging?

And, so, here's a photochoppy I made that expresses this sentiment. It seems lacking, perhaps, but my heart says that this expresses what it wishes to express. Surreal Birth.

That's lovely! I love the colors, and the feeling of it.

I had not heard of the names of the moon, but yet, where I live the crows have been cawing, and the earth worms are out again.

Yes ... I know, I'm in Vancouver, too. I just love the sound of the bus. And the buds are on the trees already.

I had no idea each full moon had a name. Its interesting, isn't it?
