Though the moon will appear full on the night of April 18, it won't be until April 19 at 7:12 a.m. that the April's full moon will reach its official peak, hiding in the brightness of the morning sky. Astrologically, this full moon will bring with it not just a reflection of light, but a reflection of our personal lives as well. Get yourself prepared with some mediations for April's full moon, because the spring awakening starts now. Though spring began last month, this month will mark the start of blooming season. All of the energy that's been building since the first thawing is finally getting ready to bud and flower.
Referred to as the "pink moon" by Native American tribes, this moon represents the time of year when many flowers, including the wild ground phlox, bloom and change the visual landscape of our surroundings. All at once we wake up into a world in which vibrant colors are a part of our every day, and we no longer are are limited to the dull and dreary colors of winter. With all of the environmental changes during this time of year, come many other changes that aren't as easy to spot as a flower in a garden.
Bustle talked to astrologer Kyle Thomas about what the April full moon has in store for us in terms of the cosmos and learned that in the same way that the outside world is bursting with changes that have been in the works for a long time, our personal worlds are about to as well — particularly, our relationships. Thomas tells Bustle that "if we are not being fulfilled or honest with the balance in our relationships in love or business, they will end or transform." However, if they're in a good place, and we are fulfilled by them, "they will evolve and grow to the next level of happiness."
With all of this energy in the atmosphere encouraging us to evaluate our relationships, we might be feeling on edge and stressed out, Thomas says, so now is a great time to work on relaxing your mind, organizing your thoughts, and finding the space to listen to your heart and officially make the changes that have been growing underground for the last few months. Here are a few mediations that will help you figure out what needs to get weeded and what can stay.
