You’ve probably heard the popular phrase right around this time of year “March comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb” which refers to the weather patterns. The start of the month tends to be winterish like we had this year so far and the end of the month gets a little warmer, a little nicer. But where does the phrase originally come from?
Astrology! Most experts say it likely started as a reference to the constellations Leo (a lion) and Aries (a ram, or lamb) in the night sky. Over time it quickly became more about the changing weather from the farmer’s almanac.
