Full Moon for Spring Break

Moonlight

Spring Break is approaching, almost as fast as the nearest Full Moon! This common heavenly phenomenon will be occurring this Sunday on March 12. And wouldn’t it be cool to consult astronomy for some fun full moon facts and compare them with the astrological interpretations of this phenomenon?

Let’s explore!

  1. During the full moon, the moon reaches the phase where she’s fully illuminated by the sun’s light. She’s magically glowing. Interpretation: It’s a time to celebrate our achievements and victories!

  2. In this lunar phase, we can’t see the “not-so-pretty” details of her surface. Interpretation: Lighten up! Don’t get stuck on minor failures and falls. Focus on your big goal!

  3. The full moon is in her most visible state. Interpretation: It’s time to show off a little! Let yourself be seen, heard, and understood.

  4. Naturally, the full moon keeps moving during this phase. Interpretation: Self confidence and self-pride are great! But don’t overdo it!

  5. The moon is the closest celestial body to the planet Earth, and when she’s full, she seems to be even closer to us. Interpretation: Don’t forget to spend some quality time with your loved ones; mainly, the people that are most important in your life, and the people you feel a close connection to! Take a moment to thank them for being there with you!

This full moon might not be significant astronomically, but I hope it will be special in your own life! Happy Spring Break, and Happy Full Moon!
