Dear Goddess, StarsSeeds and Holders of hope,
The full moon of April will rise tonight (April 16), amid Easter, Passover, Ramadan, and spring celebrations around the world.
In the United States, one traditional Native American name for this is the Pink Moon. Pink is meant to refer to the eastern United States herb moss pink, also called creeping phlox, moss phlox, or mountain phlox.
The moon is in Libra and the Sun is in Aries. This moon is all about balance in. Libra is an air sign. So, communication, balance, justice, and relationships is what this moon is all about.
This moon is conjunct Spica and square Pluto. Conjunction is when two planets are connected, hanging out very close together. Now Spica is a fixed star. Spica is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a bird, or a man laden with merchandise riches.
Spica is the bright bluish star in the wheat stalks held by the Lady in the Sky – the constellation Virgo. It is regarded by all sky cultures as one of the most positive stars in the sky. In most cultures, the constellation Virgo was seen as the Goddess. In ancient Egypt, particularly the later periods, it was seen as the Goddess Isis, and the star Spica represented or embodied her son, Horus. In later Christian traditions, the constellation was associated with the Virgin Mary and Spica with the Christ-child (there is much research into the possibility that Spica was the biblical Star of Bethelehem). Others have the constellation representing the Goddess with Spica the star in Her hand or upholding some form of produce of the earth. Wheat is the symbol of wealth, full bellies, and success, successful growth.
So, it is also working with Libra and, feels like wishing on a star is now.
Finding balance within ourselves and looking at the shadow side of all relationships.
So now the square to Pluto, squares are not easy energy, they motivated us to let go and move forward. And change never seems easy to us humans. We tend to hold on to everything. Pluto demands the release of our wounds and triggers. Pluto is such a symbol of powerful change. Digging into our underworld and looking at all our triggers. A difficult childhood, a painful experience, deception, or betrayal are just some of our triggers.
Allowing change and letting go will open our arms to our bountiful future.
So, what is your wish?
Be in balance within yourself, walk in hope and believe in grace.
