Tomorrow evening, April 11th, is the full moon for the month of April. Known as the Pink Moon, it gets its name from the pink flowers that bloom at this time. As spring begins to emerge, we too can look at the new and blossoming events that are taking place in our lives at this time.
This full moon is in the zodiac sign Libra. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus. Venus governs our desires, love, and beauty. Libra is a sign of love and relationships. Known with having the symbol of the scales, this sign is also all about fairness and balance.
At this full moon, we shift our focus on our relationships and how to achieve harmony within them. Have they become out of balance? Are you and your partner fighting more? Are you so focused on work that you have put your relationship aside? Or visa versa. Have you put so much of your energy into your relationship that you don’t do anything else? Meditating on these questions can help shed light as to what steps you need to take in order to restore balance and harmony to your relationships.
As we focus on our relationships, we may be challenged by the sun’s energy in Aries. This sign is the first of the zodiac, and as such, has a “me, me, me” mentality. Strike a balance between “me” and “we” as these opposite signs learn to work together in harmony.
To assist with your full moon magick, here is a crystal pairing for this Pink Moon. Meditate and carry them with you for this full moon.
