If you've been feeling a little emotional lately, you're probably not alone: April's full moon is rising on Apr. 19, and astrologically, it's bringing a whole bunch of side effects for those of us here on Earth. This month's full moon is called the pink moon, and will definitely have an effect on you. Oh, and just so you know, unfortunately, the pink moon doesn't refer to the color of the moon — which would be awesome. It's just a nickname given by native people to signify the appearance of moss pink, a traditional early spring flower. Regardless, this final part of April's lunar cycle is going to make everyone feel all the feels and more. But if you want to know how the April full moon will affect you, you should start by looking at your zodiac sign.
The full moon happens when the sun is opposite the moon, and that is a symbol of opposing forces in your life. According to Astrology King, "Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. Your home, family and intimate relationships comes into sharper focus following a full moon." Full moons are known for being a time of heightened emotion and intuition, something that can be quite frustrating, but also helpful in allowing you to get a better look at your relationships.
This full moon in particular should bring about excitement, change, and freedom, maybe causing you to want to change up your daily routine and do something new. You might feel more open-minded than usual, although that impulsive energy could backfire... so be careful. Bustle spoke with astrologer Maia Orion and astrologer Lisa Stardust to get the lowdown on what to expect — and turns out, we should all expect a lot. "The full pink moon will cause us all to take notice of where we invest our energies, making us see who and what we want commit to and if it’s worth the work," Stardust tells Bustle.
As with anything, though, this will affect everyone slightly differently based on their zodiac sign. Here's how you can expect to feel:
