The Last Supermoon Of 2019: Super Worm Moon And The Zodiac
This 20 March 2019, sky-gazers will enjoy the last supermoon of 2019, known as the full super worm moon which should be visible a few hours after the official start to spring marked by the spring equinox.
We will have a look at the definition of the supermoon and how it will affect the twelve zodiac signs.
What is the super worm moon?
The super worm moon on Wednesday promises an extraordinary show as the final star in this years' three back-to-back supermoons and the changes we will experience are not limited to the horoscope.
Firstly, the moon will reach its closest point to Earth, known as lunar perigee, on Tuesday at 3:47 p.m. ET, but the moon won’t be full until Wednesday at 9:43 p.m. ET. The moon is usually about 386.242 km away from Earth, but at perigee this month, it will come within about 359.366 km of our planet, according to NASA.
Secondly, and quite remarkably, this full super worm moon will coincide (after 19 years) with the spring equinox which means that days will be longer in the Northern hemisphere where it marks the beginning of spring. In the Southern Hemisphere, however, it signals the beginning of autumn.
The Super Worm Equinox Moon arrives at the same time worldwide, at 1.42am UTC. This translates to the following time zones in North America and Europe:
- London: 1.42am GMT March 21
- Mainland Europe: 2.42am CET March 21
- Washington D.C: 9.42pm EDT March 20
- Los Angeles: 8.42pm PDT March 20
Why "worm" moon?
Northern Native American tribes had a preference for strange names (blood wolf moon, full crow moon, full crust moon ) when it came to baptizing their full moons, especially after 1930.
The name comes from the fact that it's the first full moon of March and as the temperature begins to warm up, the ground starts to thaw, and earthworms appear, announcing the return of spring. For this reason, the March full moon is often known as the full worm moon.
Nevertheless, it has also been called "full crow moon" as the birds' crowing heralded the end of winter, and "full sugar supermoon" because it coincides with the beginning of the maple syrup season.

CANCER (21 June - 22 July)
The reality is that Cancer will be one of the Magic Horoscope signs that will not receive this supermoon's full effect. Fret not, as this super worm moon will not make you spiral out of control, but it might influence you to be more withdrawn than usual. Such behavior could destabilize your couple dynamic and could cause certain confusion at work. The good news is, Cancer, that you will be in optimal health and you will continue to take good care of yourself.
LEO (23 July - 22 August)
The influence of the super worm moon will prove instrumental for you this month, Leo. You will find a fresh source of vitality and grace that will help you get out of some trouble that you've had for a while. The supermoon's light will minimize your natural aggressiveness and give way to a tamer demeanor; one that will lend itself to helping others in time of need. Despite everything that might happen after this March supermoon, try to put a lid on your naivete and not let yourself be fooled by others.
VIRGO (23 August - 22 September)
Virgo, you're in for a peaceful love life, and it's all due to the super worm equinox moon. The start of the spring equinox marks a new stage in your life where you will fight for stability in love, and you will strive to find a partner should you be single. The changes in your professional life will be more substantial, but you might have to wait a little longer before all your dreams come true. Be patient, Virgo, you're on the right path.
LIBRA (23 September - 22 October)
You've placed immense pressure on your family, Libra, and the influence of the super worm moon will allow you to see the error of your ways and start having more serious conversations with yourself. Focus on fixing what went wrong and giving your loved ones more freedom. Be careful with your emotions, as the lunar energies might cloud your judgment and push you into taking injust decisions regarding your friendships or partnerships. Try and be more objective, Libra.
SCORPIO (23 October - 21 November)
This new cycle you're experiencing will be an absolute hit for you, Scorpio. The super worm moon will create the ideal conditions for professional growth, and you will be endowed with a fierce ability to focus and, this time, without the added thirst of stepping on corpses to get to your objectives. You will be inspired to travel which will come as a breath of fresh air.
SAGITTARIUS (22 November - 21 December)
The lunar influence will stabilize your health rhythm, Sagittarius, and you will find yourself in the best shape of your life. You're brimming with energy which will be most beneficial in matters of the heart. This upcoming period foretells weddings and engagements, perhaps even the birth of new family members, for those who wish to enlarge their families. Be careful with your judgment, as your mind might not be as clear and you may be prone to making more mistakes. Keep an eye on your spending habits and try to budget well in advance.
CAPRICORN (22 December - 19 January)
Instead of pushing you towards choosing caution, the last supermoon of 2019 will inspire you to go for the exciting, maybe even dangerous, adventure. Try and keep in mind, Capricorn, that you won't be able to blame the moon for your actions and that you will have to deal with any consequences that arise. You will enter a new love cycle, and you might even start seeing someone new.
AQUARIUS (20 January - 19 February)
As a consequence of this supermoon, you may feel disappointed in love, Aquarius, and your significant other might give you the cold shoulder. You won't mind as much, however, seeing how that will free your schedule and you'll be able to attend events and meet new people. You will be a social butterfly! Be careful not to neglect your family because you're pouring all of yourself in personal projects.
PISCES (20 February - 20 March)
The March 2019 supermoon will inspire the entrepreneur within and you will be on top of your finances, Pisces. You can finally loosen that belt a little.
