Tonight is the Full Crow Moon also known as the Worm Moon and the Sap Moon. Called the Crow Moon for the cawing crows that signal the end of winter. As the earth thaws worms start to appear. And it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.
As we move to Ostara, the Spring Equinox on March 20th when both day and night are at equal length we are reminded to find our own inner balance. focus inward toward inner wisdom and self analysis.
This Full Moon is about cultivating and growing, just as the Suns energy and nature is doing. Plant the seeds of new ventures now, plan for the future, think about what it is you want and need and set about putting a plan into action. Use this month for magical workings related to rebirth and regrowth. New life is blooming during this phase of the moon, as is prosperity and fertility.
The Full Moon always illuminates our inner feelings and desires, so emotions can be quite raw and enhanced. The Full Moon is in the sign of Virgo.

The Virgo sign is also a very practical sign so use it’s energy for getting jobs done that you have been putting off for a while. Tackle any problems and bring them to an end.
This Full Moon brings light to whatever was hidden in the darkness or buried within the subconscious such as emotional pain or our deepest desires, but once awareness happens you are able to make realistic changes.

Emotional reactions may be strong, energies may feel irritable or uptight, but don’t worry this will pass. We are amidst great times of transformation which are heralding major new beginnings. Change isn’t always easy or comfortable and it’s constant, so we must strive to keep our balance during these changing tides.
