Pink Moon Ritual FAQ
What is the Pink Moon in April?
Pink Moon is the name that April’s Full Moon receives each year in North America. It represents the sprouting of seeds and the growth of pink flowers (mainly a flower called moss pink) that are the first to bloom with the arrival of spring.
Many cultures that use lunar calendars would give special names to each of the Full Moons in order to track the changes in the environment and seasons.
What are other names for the Pink Moon?
Most names given to April’s Full Moon in Northern latitudes have to do with the effect of the spring such as Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, and Fish Moon (common among coastal tribes).
Why is the Moon Pink in April?
If you look up and see the Full Pink Moon of April, you may be disappointed to notice that it doesn’t really look pink at all. “Pink Moon” is just the name it receives, because of the time of the year (spring) in the Northern Hemisphere, associated with pink flowers.
Is a Pink Moon actually pink?
The color of a Pink Moon is usually bright white. The Pink Moon may look a bit yellow if you catch it near the horizon, due to the effect of the atmosphere. Red light can pass through the atmosphere and not get scattered as much as light at the blue end of the spectrum, so sometimes the Moon turns red when it is low in the sky. It then becomes shiny white as it travels up in its path around the Earth.
What does the Pink Moon mean in astrology?
The Pink Moon can shed light on both the good and the bad sides of you, no matter what your astrological sign is. The Pink Moon, like all Full Moons, can affect your body just like it affects the bodies of water on Earth. Its energy can magnify anything that is currently going on in your life, including feelings and emotions. This Pink Moon can bring an increased sense of energy, which each sign of the zodiac will handle differently. Its light and energy can be overwhelming for some, putting them on edge, while at the same time acting as a useful guide for others.
Have a Blessed Full Moon! ✨
