Worm Moon - Luna Eclipse - Full Moon in Libra 2024

This Monday evening into Tuesday morning we welcome the March Full Moon, the moons fullest point at exactly 6pm AEDT. Falling in the Air sign of Libra.

The Worm Full Moon - named for the worms and beetle larvae that would appear at this time of year in the Northern hemisphere.

It's the first Full Moon following the Autumn Equinox, and as such is the first Full Moon of the new astrological year - the perfect time for manifesting. 

This isn't just any full moon the Full Moon in Libra will also be the first luna eclipse of 2024. 

This won't be a Lunar Eclipse in the traditional sense where the Moon turns blood red. Because in a traditional lunar eclipse, the Moon passes through the umbra (the darkest part of the Earth's shadow). This Full Moon, the Moon will pass through the penumbra (the lighter part of the Earth's shadow). The Full Moon will be fainter, but it won't be the stark blood colour people think of when they normally think of a lunar eclipse.

The luna eclipse will begin at 9.53pm on Sunday evening reaching its max at 12.12am and ending at 2.32am on Monday morning.

What does an Eclipse mean for Astrology?

An eclipse is a period of change & transformation... A Solar Eclipse is a portal of new beginnings & Change where the Luna Eclipse reveals the energies to complete one's journey or shift, Luna Eclipses are more emotionally charged & Luna being feminine energy helps to feel intuition & honour knowledge.

It is important to take on board what a Lunar Eclipse may reveal, don't fight its knowledge, take it in & ask what the highest manifestation is I can create with this energy. Even if the information is unwanted or unexpected, be open to it & trust it is landing with you with purpose at the exact time you need it.

A luna eclipse is also an energetic push for the universe to take you out of stagnant energies & old patterns. Sometimes this push can feel disruptive to your nervous system & you may try to resist it at first, but there is no moving backwards on a luna eclipse. If you try to hold onto energy that no longer serves you, you will only be met with frustration & misalignment.

Use this energy to detach from energies, emotions, even people that no longer serve your evolution this month.

Hold Space for yourself, give yourself time to process what the Eclipse reveals. Do not rush into decisions, rather let the energy settle & make the moves needed to send you forwards.

What the Libra energy means to you?

Libra, ruled by Venus, the planet of Love & Beauty. Libra reminds us to connect with the things we love in our lives. Libra helps us to connect with our hearts & communicate with others from this place. In its highest Libra gives us Patients, Compassion & the willingness to understand others perspectives.

We know it can be hard to step into our higher vibration of love when we can be affected by others around us, as we naturally absorb other people's energy. Energy is contagious however it is important to hold boundaries to help us maintain the vibrations we want to experience instead of absorbing those vibrations of those around us.

This Luna Eclipse is an opportunity to create those boundaries. As you move through center yourself & recognize your wholeness without anyone else. Then look at the connections in your life, which ones nourish you & which ones drain you? Where do you need more balance or more boundaries.

Relationships evolve over time, so what may have once worked well may just need some repair.
