Worm Moon Musings
Look up! It’s a full moon! It’s the Worm Moon! Worm Moon? Yes. It’s the Worm Moon.
As over the moon I am about full moons I am not familiar with tonight’s Worm Moon. I’m not squeamish about worms but naming a full moon after these little earth burrowers simply goes against logic and romantic notions. The moon is the silver lady in the sky or the beaming gentleman among the stars (no bias). Attaching “worm” to the full moon status is perplexing.
Good old Farmer’s Almanac helped me out on this one. The March 7th full moon is the Worm Moon because (ready for the drumroll…) winter has passed and the ground is warming up signaling spring is near and the worms are waking up to surface to feed the incoming birds.
Replay that. Winter has passed? Spring is near? Robins and etc are landing to snack on the worms?
I’m looking forward to the rest of the year’s moons. Join me wherever you are and we will gaze up at the night sky in shared appreciation. Worm Moon, indeed…

No worms. They are probably going to hunker down for another month.
Ours are hibernating.
Ooh, the Beaver Moon is right by my birthday! Always liked beavers.
I will salute the moon on your birthday, Mike.
I prefer bananas. Is there a banana moon?
That would be a crescent moon🌙, silly rabbit.
Worms are nice, too, just not nearly as cute as beavers.
Very true. Although a strawberry moon is very delicious.
