Full ’Sap’ Moon will happen on March 12th, 2017 at 14:53:43 UT (09:53:43 EST) in the tropical Virgo, sidereal and constellational Leo.
Some Native American tribes called March’s Full Moon ’Sap Moon’, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins. To the settlers, it was also known as the ’Lenten Moon’, and was considered to be the last Full Moon of winter. The name ’Storm Moon’ comes from weather folklore, it is said to occur during shifting weather patterns in the northern hemisphere. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the ’Full Crow Moon’, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the ’Full Crust Moon’, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. Other names include ’Worm Moon’, ’Sugar Moon’, ’Chaste Moon’, ’Seed Moon’ or ’Moon of the Winds’.
