Hum … what exactly is a Crow Full Moon? It is the name that the Native Peoples gave to the last Full Moon prior to the spring equinox (March 20). It was heralded by the cawing of the crows, alerting them to the end of winter.
This years Crow Full Moon occurs in the sign of Virgo — emphasizing the purification and integration of body, mind and spirit. Virgo is the Earth sign that holds a special affinity for all things related to our planet and her depiction honors the sacredness of Earth’s bounty as she lifts the wheat staff in her hand. The word Virgo is Latin for virgin. Its true meaning is “whole and pure within oneself.” Therefore, whenever Virgo is highlighted, an increased motivation for improvement and refinement will occur.
“Harness your mind’s power and you can reach the mountaintop. Harness your hearts power and you can reach the stars. Harness your soul’s power and you can reach the edge of the universe.” — Matshona Dhliwa
