Full Moon ~ Aries Birth in Celebration

  • The March 2013 full moon will be out all night on March 26-27, shining in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden. Virgo’s brightest star is called Spica, and you’ll see the moon even closer to Spica tomorrow night, March 27-28.

    The moon turns precisely full on March 27 at 9:27 Universal Time (4:27 a.m. CDT in the central U.S.). In North America, that means the moon reaches the crest of full phase in the wee hours before sunrise on March 27. But no matter where you live worldwide, watch for the brilliant lamp of the full moon to light up the nighttime from dusk till dawn. Look for the moon low in the east at dusk – at its highest point in the sky around midnight – and low in the west before the sun comes up tomorrow.

    The March 2013 full moon will be out all night on March 26-27, shining in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

  •  "For the Northern Hemisphere, this is the first full moon of springtime. We in this hemisphere call it the Pink Moon, to celebrate the return of certain wild flowers. Other names are Egg Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon, or Easter Moon. In most years, the Christian celebration of Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon of the Northern Hemisphere spring. So tonight’s Easter Moon heralds the coming of Easter Sunday on March 31, 2013."

  • Moon

    brilliant be the full moon light
    an indigo melody fills the night
    the depths of darkness graced they be
    by the light that calls to hearts and sea
    tides and souls in cresting splendor
    to this majesty of grace I surrender.

  1. ...andso it was the morning followed and my Aunt passed away - she slept peacefully and finally came to rest. Her life was glorious - simple and loving. Her sister and she lived together for 83 years - never married, always the two of them, once my Gramma passed away they just clung to one another and built a life of service and faith and family. Now just one remains, and she, Aunt Honey, is the last of my Mom';s family. Amen. And so the full moon welcomes her "home"....

    1. Dearest Gail,

      My sympathies for your loss. As we see more and more moons pass so too, many who have shared Creation's light go "home" and are welcomed at Heaven's Gate.

      Love and blessings,

      Rose Marie
