Full Pink Moon April 4, 2015

pink moon copiaAfter the long winter it’s time to throw your head back and howl at the full pink moon.  This is a wonderful time of year because it expresses rebirth and growth.  The April Pink Full Moon is filled with magic as it contains a complete lunar Eclipse making this a powerful time to set your intentions. Plan a ritual to physically plant your seeds of desire in Mother Earth. This time of year is filled with pink healing energy that can be opened up to receive and embrace its majesty and glory.

This Total Lunar Eclipse or “Blood Moon” is on April 4, 2015 at 8:06 A.M. and will be visible in most of North America, South America, Asia and parts of Australia. The Moon will be totally eclipsed (totality) for about 5 minutes. From beginning to end, it will last for 3 hours and 29 mins. This is the third eclipse in the 2014–2015 tetrad. The moon will be having a red shade because the sunlight passing through the Earth’s atmosphere becomes tinted red as seen during sunrise and sunset. Throughout the total eclipse, the red light coming from the Earth’s atmosphere reaches the moon so the color becomes red. This is why it is called a “Blood Moon”

The Pink Moon received its name from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

AprilThe full moon of April is also known as the Egg Moon. 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.

April Moon Facts and Folklore

On April 20, 1972, the lunar module of Apollo XVI landed on the moon with astronauts John Young and Charles Duke aboard. Thomas Mattingly remained in orbit around the moon aboard the command module. This was the third exportation of the moon.

One day later on April 21, 1972, Apollo XVI astronauts John Young and Charles Duke drove an electric car (LEM) on the surface of the moon. It’s still up there along with some expensive tools and some film that they forgot.

The period from the full Moon through the last quarter of the Moon is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.

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.

Spring Equinox, New Moon, March 20, 2015

Spring Equinox copia

March is an extremely busy month astrologically.  It is the spring equinox, a new moon, and an eclipse all on March 20, 2015. It occurs when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor toward the Sun, and, astrologically, when the Sun reaches 0° Aries. Its name is derived from Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), as night and day are about equal length at this Spring midpoint. Other names for the Spring Equinox are Alban Eilir, Gwyl Canol Gwenwynol, Lady Day, Meán Earrach, and Ostara.

The moon turns new only 14 hours after reaching lunar perigee – moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. Thus this moon is a supermoon – at the new phase – not visible in our sky, but having a larger-than-average effect on Earth’s oceans. Plus this new supermoon swings right in front of the equinox sun on March 20, so that the moon’s shadow falls on parts of Earth.

The feel-good factor about this day, however, is that the first official astrological day of spring hints that high temperatures are not far off. This will be good news for many, who will have a much-awaited relief from the spate of cold blasts seen in the recent weeks.

It’s important to remember that the dawning of spring has been observed for a long time in many other cultures as well. Traditions vary widely from one country to the next.  March 20 also welcomes Ostara which is celebrated in spring season as a way to honor the richness and wealth that Mother Nature has brought to humans and creatures. Spring is considered as the period of growth, happiness and love. In this time of a year, everything is woken up from winter and they are full of vitality.

As the winter ends traditionally Native American people celebrate their thanks with prayers for surviving the bitter, cold days and the struggles they had to overcome. With spring everyone begins to enjoy the bounties of the earth once more, as plants and animals show new life again. The land turns green, wildlife flourishes and people are filled with anticipation for the coming of summer, the time of harvest.

Springtime is a wonderful season to celebrate with much merriment and shared feasts, as families gather together, dancing and enjoying the gifts of the land. Just as those in ancient times find a reason to give thanks for being here another day. Do something special to honor the fact that you are still here. Celebrations and rituals are important in our spiritual walk.

It is a time to offer thanks in prayers to the Great Creator who is watching and filling those that celebrate with blessings.

Many Blessings,
