This Saturday, March 31st, we’ll see the second full moon in March rise in the night sky. Because it’s the second full moon in March, this upcoming full moon is also a blue moon. Blue moons only occur every two to three years, so if you miss this one, you’ll have to wait until 2020 to see another blue moon take to the sky. To celebrate this cosmic event, we’ve compiled a list of full moon quotes that will help put your wonder into your Instagram caption.
It’s actually only been a couple of months since we saw the last blue moon at the end of January (it was also a super blue moon). It’s incredibly rare to have two blue moons happen in the same year. In fact, we won’t see this happen again until 2037, according to EarthSky.com.
March’s blue moon also goes by the name “Sap Moon” because it’s at this time of year when sap begins to weep from maple trees and is harvested to make maple syrup.
If you’re planning on celebrating the rise of the blue moon on Saturday night, share your festivities on Instagram using one of the full moon quotes below. Have a marvelous, moon-tastic time!
