April Full Moon Blog
This evening, the full "Pink" moon will shine brightly as Mercury rises in an Easter treat for stargazers. A full moon appears like a perfect circle when the side facing our planet is fully illuminated. The term "pink moon" likely derives from the pink flowers of the creeping phlox or moss phlox (known by its scientific name Phlox subulata)—a plant native to eastern North America—which often blooms around this time of year, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.
As a way to release something that no longer serves you, a simple fire ceremony is a transformative ceremony and ritual that can be performed on a full moon.
This is something that Grandmother Flordemayo mentions often we need to let go of things that don't serve us in a positive way. This is a simple fire ceremony you can do at home:
Always set your intention with prayer and toward the ceremony or ritual
Write down what does not serve you and focus clearly on that intention
Light the slip of paper on fire and drop it into a bowl of water
As it burns, imagine what you are letting go of that does not serve you and more importantly the intention of your prayer, and releasing it into the four directions.
Once the paper is finished burning, you can take the ashes and water and give it back to the earth or keep it on your altar in prayer.
You can pour the water and ashes on the ground with the intention to take what does not serve you and releasing it back to Mother Earth
Love, Light, & Blessings!
