5 Pink Moon Rituals to Live From the Heart (April 2024)

Pink Moon in a dark sky with text that says: 5 Sweet and Brave Pink Moon rituals


This week the full Moon will rise in our Springtime skies, bringing warmth, clarity and an opportunity for rebirth.

Here in April, the full Moon is known as the pink Moon.

The name originates in Native American lands, where the pink phlox are in flower, casting swathes of pink blooms across the meadows. Here in the UK, I don’t seem much pink around quite yet. The Anglo-Saxons called this the Egg Moon, and to the Celts, it was the Budding Moon, which feels more appropriate to me.

What’s the Pink Moon called in your world?

I love Amanda Yates Garcia‘s suggestion that we name the Moons for ourselves. In my life right now, this one could be the “Hurry Up Summer Moon”, or the “Brisk Wind Moon” or the “Momentum Moon”.

As the wheel of the year turns ever onward, this full Moon arrives to keep us on track and help us build up momentum. Still emerging from the cold of winter, we’re being called to shed those last old skins, to create the space for new life.

It may still be chilly most mornings out there, but expansion is on the horizon and we must meet it with our own willingness to grow.

I love this full Moon because it offers one more STRETCH into transformation. 

Sitting in Scorpio, this full Moon is a crucible for death and rebirth of the most profound kind. But can you make the transition from the HEART, and not the ego?
