The Full Pink Moon occurs every April, this Full Moon aligns with the early springtime blooms of a certain wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata, commonly called creeping phlox, which also went by the name 'moss pink'. As everything comes back to life with new growth, that same energy returns to you. It’s a time of ceremony and ritual, which can often bring trouble. Change can be hard, but if you can look within and find your inner flow, spring can also be a time for monumental shifts!
Full Moon Mood
The Pink Moon is also a mark of love, marriages are common around this time and couples attune with this shift in seasons and energetic flows of the planet. It serves as a reminder that life is a set of ups and downs, a cycle of hibernation and reawakening. The flowers will wither and die, but they always return, seemingly more beautiful than the previous year. The Pink Moon blossoms in Scorpio in conjunction with Aries' new moon, this lunar movement is incredibly powerful. Both Aries and Scorpio are ruled by Mars, the most fiery, passionate, and aggressive planet of all. The growth that occurs between such potent moon phases can feel overwhelming, so be sure to meditate on your actions and thoughts before committing fully.
Full Moon Action
Signifying rebirth and renewal, this time of year is always another chance to shift your conscious and subconscious actions. Whatever intentions you set during the hibernation are developing throughout the long sleep of winter, the Pink Moon blossom, bringing with it the meditations of your resting. Focus on your transformation, be sure to move slowly as you fully awaken to your new potential and prepare for the beautiful work ahead of you. Rejoice in the love that has wellspringed and connect with yourself and your partner on deeper explorations of relationship and intentions. Be sure to celebrate yourself, you’ve made it through the death of winter and you are awake now, soak-in and romance yourself. You deserve it.
