Yesterday was the spring equinox and this event marks the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. There was also a full moon on the spring equinox which is called a Full Worm Moon.
It is called a Full Worm Moon because At this time of the year, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting birds to eat —a true sign of spring. The flowers are starting to grow and the signs of spring are all around.
The last time a Full Worm Moon happened on the March equinox was 19 years ago, in 2000, and the next time will be 11 years from now, in 2030. We also had a supermoon which means it is slightly larger than other full moons.
After the Spring equinox, the Norther Hemisphere tilts toward the Sun, which is why we start to get longer, sunnier days. We are ready for spring to hurry up at Tatum & Atkinson, PLLC!
