April 22nd marks the full moon of this month. Known as the Pink Moon, it gets its Native American name due to the wild ground phlox, a pink flower that is typically one of the first to bloom. Just as the flowers begin to blossom, we too should look at this full moon as a time of change and transformation.
This full moon falls under the zodiac of Scorpio. Scorpios are ruled by both Mars and Pluto, the planet of drive/passion, and the planet of transformation and mystery, making these natives very passionate, mysterious, and intense people. A water sign, they are driven by their emotions. When hurt, Scorpios have a tendency to be like their symbol the scorpion. Their cunning ways and passion take a turn towards vengeance and the ability to hold grudges. Hell hath no fury like a Scorpios scorn. Since the full moon is a time of release, it is important that if we are holding on to any resentment, bitterness, or hate, to let it go at this time. As Scorpio is a sign of transformations, look at this moon as a time of release and rebirth, shedding the old to make way for the new.
At this time, the sun moves positions into Taurus, the sign of the Bull. Taurus are quite grounded folk, almost like boulders with their set-in-stone mentalities. Once a Taurus is committed, their perseverance and determination will see them through until the end. This makes them loyal lovers. Speaking of love, Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, which is associated with love and beauty, making these native quite the romantics. With Scorpio’s passion and Taurus’s romance, love is the focus of this full moon. Release the old and bring in these new energies into your relationships and let your love life blossom like the emerging spring flowers!
