You’ve probably heard this saying every year around this time “March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb” but what does it mean and where does it come from?
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the phrase is a weather folklore going back centuries ago that meant if the weather at the start of month was bad (roaring, like a roaring lion) then in theory March should end with good weather (gentle, like a lamb).
But why those specific animals? That’s based on astrology and the zodiac signs. This time of the year in March, Leo is the rising sign and then when April arrives it’s Aries which represents the lamb.
