After the long winter it’s time to throw your head back and howl at the Full Pink Moon April 29, 2018 in Scorpio. This is a wonderful time of year because it expresses rebirth and growth. This full Moon is calling us to be aware of our deepest desires. This moon may look full a day before and after to the casual observer.
Why is the April full moon pink? Despite its name, the Pink Moon does not actually turn pink in April – in fact the moon never changes its color.
The Pink Moon owes its name to pink flowers called wild ground phlox which bloom in springtime. This moon is also known as Egg Moon, due to spring egg-laying season. Both names, Pink and Egg, indicate the sprouting of seed and the explosion of bright beauty found in the phlox (pink) and other flowers rising for the spring debut.
This is the perfect full moon to complement the April 15 new moon because the major theme of that new moon was making a positive change in your life.
The April 29 full moon now brings the stability and security to crystallize recent changes and make them permanent improvements. This is a good full moon for making new partnerships binding, formal and legal. It is a good full moon for tradition, ritual and ceremony.
This is indeed a lucky time of year. If you’ve been struggling at the first part of this year things should turn around for you if you pay attention and give thanks for this full Moon.
With April’s Full Moon come new beginnings, new growth and the perfect opportunity to take control of your life. It’s time to tap into that innate sense of power you have over your life.
We are moving forward on our spiritual journey and it’s not to our benefit to look back. The past is over and it’s time to be in the here and now. Do not worry about the future. Only be concerned about where you are on your spiritual path NOW.
Asking ourselves the following questions may help us tune into what the universe wants us to see.
- How much is too much?
- Where do we draw the line? What are the risks in doing so?
- How bad do we want it and how far are we willing to go to get it?
- Is enough ever enough?
Nobody knows the answers except for us—taking a minute to honestly ask ourselves may prove beneficial.
Shine The Diamond of Your Soul.
This time of year is filled with pink healing energy that can be opened up to receive and embrace its majesty and glory.
This Pink Moon is calling for us to spiritually shed the dead parts of winter from our souls and make way for the new growth that is being released at this sacred time.
This is your opportunity to advance your soul growth. Do not let this moment pass you by. It is easy to say that I will do it tomorrow or the next day or the next day, and soon you will discover that ten years have gone behind you, and you will wonder what you did with your life during that time.
Use the energy of this Full Moon to Blossom just like spring flowers and continue to get deeply rooted in changing your life and becoming a gentle spirit that blesses everyone you encounter. Just like angels and fairies send blessings as they pass by let this be your gift to everyone in your life.
Clean and shine the diamond of your soul and let that light shine, so that people wonder as you pass by-what it was that just touched their soul.
The Burning Bowl Full Moon Ceremony
The burning bowl ceremony is a fire ceremony that helps us to release old, unwanted conditions or events in our lives. Just like Mother Earth sheds winter for spring. Let go of the old that no longer serves to make way for the new. It clears the way for new beginnings. It is a wonderful way of letting go. This ceremony can be done at any time: Sometimes we need a powerful outlet to let the old go so you can make room for the new in your life. American Indians always used smoke as a symbol of their thoughts and prayers going up to the Great Spirit.
Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.
It is best to do a meditation or quiet your mind prior to writing out what you want to release. Write what you no longer want in your life and what you need to let go of on a piece of paper. Grab a pot, use a fireplace, barbecue or something safe to burn your written releases in. As you watch the paper burn visualize the smoke going up into spirit and being released from you. You can do a simple prayer as you watch the smoke:
Once it has been burnt, blow, fling, or pour the ashes in a lake, stream or into the wind off and away from your property as you say be gone and let it go from your thoughts.
Take this time to celebrate the beauty of the moon and all the inspiration that it gives us.
If you do decide to howl make sure you don’t freak out your neighbors. Have fun, dance, sing, and enjoy yourself.
