For the second time in March 2018, a full moon will arise. On Mar. 31 at 8:37 a.m. EST, we will all welcome the second blue moon of 2018 into the sky — a blue mon that's technically called a pink moon, or a sap moon, or a fish moon, even though it's neither blue nor pink nor sappy or fishy at all. I know, it's confusing. So, before I jump into these March full pink moon astrology predictions, I'll break down this lunar event so that you can lower your shoulders from that epic shrug you are currently sporting.

When two full moons fall within one calendar month, the latter is dubbed a blue moon. Not for its color, however, but instead for its rare presence. As for why it's called a pink moon, this name dates back to Native American tradition: The moon that rises during this time period was called the "pink moon" because it always appeared during the time that phlox flowers bloom — a pink wildflower that welcome springtime. While it typically occurs in April, this year it falls during March.

The pink moon is also a pillar for Easter and Passover. Easter always happens the first Sunday after the first full moon of the spring equinox, and Passover comes the following Sunday. This moon signifies quite a bit, so if you're into astrology you might know to expect to feel some changes as we approach the full moon.

Now that we've got all of the history and associations untangled, let's get you ready for the astronomical event — a full moon that's under the direct influence of both Aries and Libra. I've broken down what each sign can expect to experience during the pink full moon.
