April 2017’s Full Moon falls on the 10th in the sign of Libra. This full moon is known as the Pink Moon, it was called such because it heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.
All reports with regards to this Full moon point to a feel good moon. We can accomplish much if we are willing to look at where we are out of balance and lay the ground work to bring our lives back into balance. It promises to be the moon of abundance, growth, and good fortune, however, the flip side of this moon is that you can only reap what you sow. In other words be prepared to do some work and don’t wait for it to land at your feet.
Think about one area of your life where you would like to be more balanced. If you are not sure which area to pick, decide to place the intent for balance in all areas of your life. I think it is appropriate to ask the Goddess Maat to join us as she is the goddess associated with balance, fairness, harmony, and wisdom. Her gentle energy will help guide you until the next full moon in bringing balance into all areas of your life.
Prepare to work with Maat on the evening of the full moon. Diffuse frankincense essential oil or burn some frankincense incense. If you wish to have a beverage choose beer or wine. Holding a feather, Ostrich is you have one in one hand, and one of the following crystals: aqua aura, turquoise, amazonite, larimar, or chrysocolla in the other hand. I would suggest holding the crystal in your non-dominant hand and the feather in your dominant hand. I want you to slowly relax your body and mind, and visualize yourself walking down 10 steps, counting each one as you step down. At the bottom you will be met by Maat who will lead you to a comfortable seat. Before you will be a large scale, as you think about each area of your life notice if the scale tilts more to one side or the other. It if tilts, pause and ask Maat to help you bring balance into that area. Listen to the advice offered, and remember be true to yourself and trust you understand what is needed to bring balance to your life. When you are ready, thank Maat for her wisdom, and guidance, then slowly walk back up the stairs and back to the now.
