Pink Full Moon April 22, 2016

APRIL MOON

After the long winter it’s time to throw your head back and howl at the Full Pink Moon April 22, 2016 at 05:24 UTC .  This is a wonderful time of year because it expresses rebirth and growth.  This moon may look full a day before and after to the casual observer.

Full Moons are about completion and something in our lives needs to evolve and either close out or be taken to the next level.

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.

The April 22 full moon is the smallest full moon of the year. We’ve heard it called the micro-moon or mini-moon. What is a mini-moon or micro-moon?. The terms mini-moon and micro-moon stem from popular culture. They roll off the tongue more easily than apogee full moon. As some indication of the appellation’s growing popularity, I have found that the NASA Astronomy Photo of the Day and timeanddate.org sites both like to call the smallest full moon a micro-moon.

After 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.

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.

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.

The 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.

Full Moon blessings,

What is the Significance of Easter Eggs?

easter-eggs

Its common knowledge that Easter is a Christian celebration of Christ’s rising, but this holiday also has pagan origins. Where did the colored eggs, cute little bunnies, baby chicks, leg of lamb dinners, and lilies come from? They are all symbols of rebirth and the lamb was a traditional religious sacrifice.

Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Eastar, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, all of which involve the season of the growing sun and new birth. The Easter Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, due to the rapid reproduction habits of the hare and rabbit.

Long hard winters often meant little food, and a fresh egg for Easter was quite a prize. So you can understand why this full moon was often referred to as the Egg Moon.  Later, Christians abstained from eating meat during the Lenten season prior to Easter. Easter was the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after the long abstinence.

The egg is nature’s perfect package. It has, during the span of history, represented mystery, magic, medicine, food and omen. The egg represents the rebirth of the earth. The long, hard winter is over; the earth burst forth and is reborn just as the egg miraculously burst forth with life. The egg, therefore, is believed to have special powers. It was buried under the foundations of buildings to ward off evil; pregnant young Roman women carried an egg on their persons to foretell the sex of their unborn children; French brides stepped upon an egg before crossing the threshold of their new homes.

It is the universal symbol of Spring celebrations throughout the world and has been dyed, painted, adorned and embellished in the celebration of its special symbolism.

Traditionally, the eggs were marked with brilliant colors along with various types of bands drawn upon them which represented the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. Other symbols representing the triple Goddess, the Sun, and such shapes as triangles, squares, circles, and dots can usually be found. The drawing of special signs upon a symbolic object as with the eggs is a form of magic, as is done when creating a talisman or amulet.

Now you understand why eggs are colored at this time of year.

Whatever your beliefs are enjoy and celebrate them during this holy time.

Wishing you, and those you love, the blessings of a glorious Easter.!

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.
