April’s Full “Wind” Moon
April 29, 2018 at 5:58 PST/6:58 MST/8:58 pm EST
The wild and windy March once more
Has shut his gates of sleet,
And given us back the April-time,
So fickle and so sweet.
-Alice Cary (1820-71)
During this full moon we are lured to provocative thoughts of warm days and spring flowers. We see a decrease of the march snows which give way to April showers and windy days. As the wind blows it joyfully spreads last seasons seeds. From these seeds comes growth and new life. Already we are seeing the first flowers leaves of the season. The Old Farmers Almanac calls this the Full Pink Moon because the first grass pink and ground phlox was beginning to grow. Other names for this moon are Seed Moon, Wind Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Fish Moon
Like the full moon of March the April moon is the perfect time to nurture new beginnings. Plans and ideas that you have been thinking about starting can germinate and grow if you start now. The time has come to take action and make things happen. It is particularly good for love and adopting or conceiving a child.
To celebrate this full moon bright primary colors are the pick of the day and Sacred Stones like Selenite, Moonstone, Angelite, Celestite and Quartz Crystal are the perfect adornments. Springtime flower scents like violet, hyacinth and other florals can add a special touch as well.
