What is the Full Worm Moon in Virgo, exactly?
Quick astronomy recap: The moon has different phases, and, when the moon looks like a big, round ball in the sky, that's a full moon. The Native Americans of North America used to name the different full moons, and some of those names have stuck around.
This full moon is called the Full Worm Moon because it usually happens around the time of the year that the ground starts to soften enough for worms to surface (kinda gross, but makes sense), according to the Farmer’s Almanac. Basically, it’s a sign that spring is *this* close for those in the Northern Hemisphere.
How will the Full Worm Moon in Virgo impact your zodiac sign?
There’s a lot happening with this full moon, so pull up a seat. The Full Worm Moon has a solid dreamy energy tied in with it, which will make you think about your ideal life. What would it be like to be an Instagram influencer—would you really enjoy spending your days plugging hair gummies, or is there a better path for you? (Eh, probably...)
You’ll also start to think about your health and work-life non-balance. What can you do to scale back your hours, make the same pay, and start actually making time to exercise on the reg? Sure, it seems like an impossible task, but now's the time to figure it out.
Heads up: This full moon has a strong relationship undercurrent. You’ll find yourself dreaming about what you want in a perfect partner (other than, ya know, the face of Ryan Gosling plus the physique of Chris Hemsworth). Single? Someone new and exciting may come into your orbit (although, sorry—both the Gos and Hems are taken).
If you’re already coupled up, you could face some unexpected changes in your 'ship. Maybe your partner will announce they want you both to move across the country, or you’ll discover your S.O. has been secretly reading Love Is Blind spoilers when you guys swore you'd watch the season finale together. Whatever it is, expect the unexpected.
The Full Worm Moon will impact all astrological signs, but Virgo and Pisces will feel it the most, Page says.
How will the Full Worm Moon in Virgo impact your future?
As with most things in life, it all depends on how you handle the changes that come your way. Maybe your daydreams about delving into a new career will inspire ~actual~ change, and you’ll start accomplishing all your professional goals. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll finally figure out how to nail the gym-work-life trifecta, which could set you up for good mental (and physical) health for years to come.
On the relationship front, the Full Worm Moon can force you into learning to just roll with the punches in your love life, which, hey, isn't necessarily a bad thing. Yeah, you might get thrown for a loop now and again, but figuring out what's important to you—and blocking out all the white noise that isn't—can go a long way toward creating the best relationship possible for you and your beau.
When’s the next full moon?
The next full moon is happening on April 7th in the sign of Libra. During this full moon, you’ll be all about keeping balance in your life and doing everything you can to avoid rocking the boat. Drama? You don't know her.
Until then, enjoy the shakeup. It’ll keep things... interesting, to say the least.
