How to align with The Pink Moon using Full Moon Rituals

The Full Moon (Pink Moon) in Scorpio! Even though as we know, the moon doesn’t actually go Pink! But its our glorious Pink Moon in April! April is such a stunning month in itself, Spring is in full bloom, the clocks have changed and we are on the verge of summer, its outdoor picnic weather, we are making more plans and moving towards some of those summer goals!


So it is time for April’s Pink Moon! Are you ready? Bring on 23rd April 2024 with the Full Moon at peak at 23:49pm GMT! 



Pink Moon – April’s full Moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of a certain wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata—commonly called creeping phlox or moss phlox—which also went by the name “moss pink.”


This moon is also in the zodiac, Scorpio! This zodiac is a fixed water sign, Scorpios are known for their loyalty and devotion — and also their passion. In fact, they are known to have such intense personalities, with deep feelings and emotions that they can often confused with fire signs. This is a perfect time to shed old skin and emerge as your most empowered self.


Full Moon – The Facts!


·       A full Moon occurs when the Moon appears as a complete circle in the sky. We see it as a full orb because the whole of the side of the Moon facing the Earth is lit up by the Sun's rays.

·       The Moon produces no visible light of its own, so we can only see the parts of the Moon that are lit up by other objects. A small amount of light comes from distant stars and the reflection of light from the Earth (known as 'Earthshine'). However the main source of light for the Moon is the Sun.

·       The Moon appears as different shapes in the sky depending on its 'phase', from new Moon to full Moon via 'waxing' (growing) and 'waning' (shrinking) moons. These phases are determined by the relative positions of the Sun, Earth and Moon.

·       If the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun in its orbit, then the back side of the Moon is lit up and the side facing the Earth is in darkness. This is called a New Moon.

·       If the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun, then the near side of the Moon will be fully lit up: a Full Moon.

·       A full Moon happens roughly every 29.5 days. This is the length of time it takes for the Moon to go through one whole lunar phase cycle.

Aries (March 20-April 19)

Are you ready to dive deep and embrace all aspects of yourself? This year's restorative pink moon in Scorpio reminds you that self-discovery can be both exhilarating and daunting, but it's a necessary step toward growth and self-acceptance. Rather than stuffing down challenging feelings, avoiding past due bills, or overlooking red flags in a partner, write them down in a journal or discuss them with a trusted friend or therapist. Be real with yourself and your current situation.


Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Be selective about who you let into your inner circle, as the Scorpio pink moon is shining a spotlight on your closest relationships, platonic and romantic.

I recommend for all zodiacs that you use this time to complete your rituals, cleanse your energy, journal, and focus on what you want to attract and manifest into your life.


What do Full Moon Rituals look like?

As we’ve said engaging in Full Moon rituals is a great way to connect with yourself, recharge, relax and is the perfect time to manifest, setting new intentions and also to let go of any negativity.

So, I’ll share what I do on a Full Moon Ritual

1.        Turn off your phone and find a quiet space – this is your time to be with yourself, your thoughts and emotions. So give yourself a space of no distractions whether you’re inside or outside.

2.        Cleanse your space – If I stay inside, I will tidy the room I am in and make sure it is a clean, minimal space. I will then light some incense or sage and cleanse my space around me.

3.        Meditate/Deep Breathing – Whether its guided or silent, meditation allows you time to sit in quiet and reflect on your thoughts. Meditation and reflection can also bring up emotions and help you heal wounds or trauma and so deep breathing will support you in working through those feelings.

4.        Gratitude – Give thanks and feel gratitude for what you have in your life, from the little things, the air you breath, to people in your life or milestones you have experienced.

5.        Journal – Journaling is so key for me in a full moon ritual. I use this time an opportunity to start again, just as the moon does. I will set intentions for the month and then also on a separate list, write down what I want to let go of, energy, relationships, thoughts etc. (make sure you dispose of the negative list afterwards, whether you burn it or flush it down the loo, get it out of your life!)

6.        Lift your vibrations – These rituals are to let go of all that does not serve you and bring in the positive intentions, manifestations and vibrations – so do something that really lifts your mood afterwards – DANCE! Play some great music and move your body post meditation to get those good vibrations going!

7.        Take a bath – Baths are so cleansing and it is not uncommon to infuse your bath with everything from flowers, to essential oils and salts. Even crystals. @girlandthemoon – is my go to for any full moon ritual baths! But use this time to feel as though you are washing away all that isn’t mean for you anymore and put it down the plug.

8.        Lastly, Relax – After you’ve cleansed, meditated, breathed, journaled, manifested and let go of all of the negative. A ritual can take its toll as you work through all of that emotional energy. So give yourself time to relax, rituals look different for everyone depending on the time of your life, what you want to gain from them etc. so for me my rituals are always around 8pm once my son is in bed and so, I tend to want to go straight to sleep after all of the emotional output. Feeling grateful and looking forward to this new cycle, I will sleep. But relaxing looks different for everyone, I may do a ritual on a weekend and afterwards, jump in the bath. Ultimately do what works for you.


So in summary, as humans we are connected to the moon just as we are connected to nature and a great way to feel connected to yourself, is to align with the lunar cycles and use it as an opportunity to release what is no longer serving you. But also to reflect on what you are grateful for and manifest what you want to bring into your life.
