Why Does March Come “In Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb” and Where Did the Expression Come From?

This is because during early March, the constellation Leo is rising in the east, crossing the meridian on March 20.

Therefore, the lion is associated with spring.

At the same time the constellation Aries the ram, or the lamb, is setting in the west.

So every March is “in like a lion and out like a lamb.”
