We’re more than ready for April’s full moon, known as the pink moon — a cheerful sign of spring — after the damp (but transformative) worm moon of March. (And if you were wondering: yes, every full moon has a special name and spiritual meaning, often stemming from Native American knowledge).
April’s pink moon, like many other astrological events that signal a time for change and growth — think Saturn retrograde — is the ideal time to get rid of any cosmic junk you’ve been carrying around. The pink moon represents newness, freshness, and letting go of things that are no longer serving you. Doesn’t it make sense? We’re spring-cleaning both our homes and our minds.
Why Is It Called the Pink Moon?
Consider a carpet of blooming and fragrant pink spring flowers. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the pink moon is named after a pink wildflower known as creeping phlox or moss phlox that blooms early in the spring. This rosy lunar event, like the season itself, is all about rebirth and renewal.
When Is the Full Pink Moon in 2023?
The pink moon will appear on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, in the evening. It reached its peak at 12:37 a.m. ET on Thursday, April 6. (so earlier in the night in Western time zones).
What Sign Is the Pink Moon in April?
The full pink moon in April will be in Libra, a sign associated with balance.
What Does the Pink Moon Mean Spiritually?
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, spring is upon us, which provides a significant opportunity to plant new seeds. Spring is the best time of year to make New Year’s resolutions for ourselves because it coincides with the beginning of new life. [The pink moon] is an excellent time to fully release negative thoughts or relationships that no longer have a place in our ‘new life,’ which is just getting started.
The pink moon is especially meaningful because it’s in Libra. This moon offers us the ability to make proper adjustments where adjustments are needed. We come together to find balance— which makes sense given that Libra is represented by the scales of justice themselves! — and achieve some sort of equilibrium in situations that have gotten a little out of hand recently. It’s a lovely time to forgive and ask for forgiveness, as well as to be open about any unmet needs. When the scales of justice are in the process of returning to their original position, there may be some disruption in your life. However, the disruption is an indication that what is supposed to happen is actually happening.
When Will the Next Full Moon Happen?
The full moon following the 2023 pink moon will be May’s flower moon on May 5, 2023. The next pink moon is April 23, 2024.
