This April's Full Moon: Tuesday, April 7th 07:35 PST.
The Pink Moon is the first full moon of spring. The Pink Moon is named as it usually corresponds with the blooming of moss pink, a wildflower native to North America, and one of the early blooms of the season. It will also be the brightest Supermoon this year: the moon will be as close as it gets to the earth this year, making it the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.
Full moons are a reminder of the cycles of death and rebirth, and this one is especially important as the world begins to bloom after winter hibernation. The Pink Moon is in Scorpio, which can make you feel everything more strongly, as Scorpio represents self-control and depth of emotions.
This Pink Moon, give yourself a fresh start. It's time for spring cleaning: getting rid of dirt and unnecessary items in your home, and also metaphorically in your life. Don't limit your own potential: sever ties with anything that's not serving you right now.
If things have seemed extra chaotic and frustrating lately, it’s definitely because of the Mercury retrograde: but don’t worry, we’ve made it through! This Tuesday, March 10th, marks the end of 2020’s first Mercury retrograde, with the post-retrograde shadow lasting until March 29th.
Mercury, the swiftest of all the planets in the night sky and closest to the Sun, is named for the Roman messenger of the gods, Mercury. Similar to the role of the deity in Roman mythology, the planet Mercury rules over communication, rationality and reasoning, regular travel, and relationships. During a retrograde, when the planet appears to be moving backwards, our lives can get thrown into a tailspin as communication is muddled, relationships are tested, or daily travel frustrates.
For the end of this retrograde, spend time reflecting on past experiences and lessons-- Mercury’s retrogrades are known to cause chaos, but remember this is only temporary, and soon clarity will come in the post-shadow phase. The post-shadow phase is a time for reconfiguring: the pieces of the puzzle will finally click together, allowing you to see the bigger picture. Consciously think about patterns in your life-- perhaps it is time to make a conscious effort to change some of them.
This February’s Full Moon: Saturday February 8th 11:34pm PST.
The Snow Moon is the second full moon of Winter and represents what is often the snowiest month in the States. This weekend’s Snow Moon is also the first of three Supermoon’s (moons that appear just a little larger than a regular full moon) in 2020.
February is a transitional month. Just as the snow will soon melt away and make way for a fresh start and the beauty of Spring, the same goes for you. Free yourself of clutter, negative energy, and anything else that isn’t serving you at this time. Resolve tensions and allow yourself the fresh start you deserve. This moon marks a time to accept, forgive and overcome.
Now is the time to prepare for Spring – Plant your seeds or intentions now so that they will manifest as this shift in energy takes place. Embrace this opportunity to declutter your mind and spaces around you-- and you will be better equipped to handle the changes ahead!
