Do you feel like stabbing everyone in the eye this week? There's a reason why.

When mercury was in retrograde we all lost our sh*t.

And now we can expect a “full worm moon” which is a nice way of saying “a moon that will wreak havoc in your life”. And yes, you may feel like harming those around you. (Please, don’t).

It’s happening in Australia on the evening of the March 21, so let us explain exactly what a “full worm moon” is.

Essentially, it’s just another supermoon for us folk in the Southern Hemisphere.

But according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the term “worm moon” is used in the Northern Hemisphere because the March supermoon results in a softening of the ground, causing “earthworm casts [to] reappear”.

It’s also been referred to as the “Sap Moon”, because, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, it marks the time when “maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begin”.

It’s the third and (luckily) final supermoon of the year, which means it is at the closest point to Earth it will get during orbit, meaning it appears significantly larger than the average full moon.

While the evidence that supermoons actually have a correlation with mood are anecdotal, we are absolutely sure there’s ~something~ going on.

According to AccuWeather, supermoons and full moons result in a boom of erratic behaviour, bringing about social tension.

So that explains… A lot.

This means you need to take a deep breathe, choose not to yell at your sister, and wait that moon out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
