APRIL PINK FULL MOON!
Full moon medicine is quite healing and can be a powerful time for releasing that which no longer serves us. This could be a habit, an emotion, a job, relationship, you name it, but letting go with the full moon can assist you with this releasing process. When the moon is at its fullest, we set our intentions to let something go, and as the moon begins to wane, we allow this release to fall away from our energy field, our physical, or even our mental space. We then need to make moves to create the change we wish to see, as your full participation is required. But letting it go and giving it to our higher power to do what may seem fit, is the first step. This can be such an empowering and connecting practice to develop, I highly recommend trying it out for yourself, if you haven’t already. With fascination and wonder, we are drawn to the moon. When we utilize the cycles in our releasing and even our manifesting practices, you will find the connection created with her, with your goals or aspirations, even with your body as an undeniable and sweet gift. One I personally cherish, with deep gratitude to our Creator in yet another incredible way we are ALL inter-connected.
As we approach this full moon in Libra, the sign of the scales, there are several different ways to go about a releasing ceremony. One thing I do when working with the moons medicine is incorporate the crystals to enhance and support my process. It has become a neccessary stapler my personal practice, as quite literally the crystal magnify the intentions I set carrying them deeper within, above and below. I wanted to share with you just a few crystals that can help you along the way. But first a little bit of facts regarding this full moon we call pink…
According to the old farmers almanac, Pink Full Moon announces the appearance of moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers native to the indigenous tribes of northern America. This was in a time in history when the natives did not use a Gregorian calendar but followed the cycles of the moon and the seasons. The moon doesn’t actually appear pink, but it signifies the coming of spring for many of the tribes. With flowers blooming and eggs hatching, the earth is once again springing to life. And what a beautiful time year it is. :)
Libra is the Astrological sign infamously known as the balancing scales. If you have libra as your sun or moon sign, you may be one who always wants things fair, trying to balance things out among your friends or family. You may even find yourself as someone who puts others before yourself and end up getting stressed easily. ‘Libras tend to be kind, gentle and lovers of beauty, harmony and peace. However, in their effort to keep everyone happy, they find it difficult to say ‘NO’ to anyone, and as a result, they end up getting stressed.’
With this, and the Pink Full Moon energy in mind, I chose several pink stones that are great for assisting us in releasing old wounds, and negative thought patterns; in turn facilitating space for more self love and compassion for the self and others, or the situations in which we had been burned. There are many stones to choose from but these 3 were the first that came to my mind, as I have developed a personal relationship and experience with each of them. Before I get started I just want to remind you these are by no means meant to replace any therapy you may be undergoing, but enhance them and, in turn, shorten the duration of need. With that said, my hand went right for the Pink Calcite, without even thinking.
Pink Calcite is a soft soothing energy, that opens the heart and solar plexus. It eases heart ache and pain, clearing past traumas from the emotional body, and fills the heart with universal and self love. Pink Calcite is a nurturing stone that helps us take care of ourselves! It enables us to accept love, act on love, and with loving behavior. Its a high powered stress and tension reliever, and can even help with anxiety. Pink calcite has been known to help us through the practice of radical self awareness, making it easier to be gentle with oneself, and re-center our thoughts to be more loving when the times get tough. It facilitates peace when one may be overwhelmed with life situations, having a calming effect on the nervous system. Making big life changes isn’t always easy, but Pink Calcite can take the edge off, so to speak, acting as a kind reminder to relax and stay in touch with the heart. Physically, Pink Calcite can help us in healing the bones, joints, kidney, uterus, and physical heart issues.
My second choice for this full pink moon is Pink Opal. When working with Pink Opal you will find its messages to come clear but gentle, providing comfort through healing deep past trauma and accepting of ones personal path. Bringing awareness and holding compassion for the self while facing these wounds, it carries us through a soft transition and transmutation. As you know, facing our shadows can be a really uncomfortable process, with Pink Opal it will take the edge off, soothing you like a mother would when her child is facing a major life lesson. Pink Opal is also a stone of love and gentleness. It eases the process of change, brings energies of gentle love and kindness to relationships of all kinds. As with other opals, it also brings inspiration, imagination and creativity. It can help release inhibitions, is known in assisting the release of fear around intimate relationships, commitment and marriage. It even brings you happy dreams, in this, it is a great stone for children or adults for that matter, who may have night terrors, or experience frequent nightmares. Physically, Pink Opal is helpful for eyesight, heart disease and injury, Parkinson’s disease, lungs, and spleen.
And of course we can’t leave out Rose Quartz, a staple in every healing I perform, and one of my favorite all time go to stones. Rose Quartz is wonderful for easing and healing just about any ailment, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. It is the stone of compassionate love, for self and others, wonderful for romantic love as well but great for love all encompassing. With unconditional love and a soft feminine energy healing and nurturing, Rose Quartz assist us in dissolving past wounds of resentment, fear and encircles the whole auric body with divine feminine love. It can assist you through mid-life crisis, time of deep grief and aids in the acceptance of necessary change. When wearing Rose Quartz, you may experience more love. Giving love, receiving love, and the blocks that may be holding you back from accepting more love in my life as well! Yep, crystals can do that for us too, show us our shadows, so we can move through them and heal! Physically Rose Quartz is supportive in the healing of ailments of the thymus, heart, and lungs. female reproductive system, breast cancer, and even known to help with varicose veins and vertigo.
So I am betting you sense a theme here. Compassionate healing with this April Pink Full Moon! there is never a bad time to be more compassionate, to your own self or to our fellow brothers and sisters. This moon just happens to be offering wonderful opportunity to heal these wounds on a deeper level, on a larger scale, find more balance in our internal worlds, with the idea in mind that our external world will reflect that!
