April Full Pink Moon 2024

Updated: Apr 23


April’s Full Pink Moon will be at her fullest at 4:39pm PT on 4/23/24.


The Pink Moon gets her name from the beautiful blush shades of pink moss—wild ground phlox—that adorns the earth during this sacred time… not the color of the Moon herself. This tradition of naming finds its origins in the reverence of the land and the cycles of nature, echoing back to a time when wisdom was shared through Native American and colonial American traditions. When sacred rituals and ceremonies were front and center in our daily lives.


This Full Pink Moon is in Scorpio, making it an exceptional time of transformation, introspection, and shedding what no longer serves you.

Here are a couple of my favorite ceremonies to help you honor this Full Moon.


Moon Bathing: 

1: Find a serene spot (ideally outdoors) where you can comfortably bask in the moonlight. 

2: Light some incense or palo santo to clear the energy and add a delicious scent to the air.

3: Allow the moon's gentle glow to envelop you as you meditate and reflect on areas of your life where you seek transformation. 

4: Visualize releasing what no longer serves you and inviting in new energy and intentions.

5: Journal about your experience.


Want to add another luscious layer?

Add in some gentle, flowing movements under the moonlight like yoga or dancing. Allow the rhythm of your breath and the natural cycles of the moon to guide you. Focus on releasing tension, cultivating inner peace, and inviting transformation into your body and spirit.


Release Ceremony: 

1: Create a sacred space by lighting candles (pink or red are ideal), burning incense (w/ rose, patchouli, or basil notes), crystals (Clear Quartz, Tourmaline, Rose Quartz.), and pink flowers to set the mood. 

2: Write down any negative thoughts, habits, or emotions on small pieces of paper.

3: Read each one out loud and then burn them in a fireproof container as a symbolic gesture of releasing them into the universe. 

4: Journal about your experience.


A divinely enchanted poem to recite:


Sacred Pink Moon, shine bright,

Illuminate my path with your light;

Ignite within me flames of change,

As I release what no longer serves, rearrange.


With each flicker of the flame,

I let go of what I cannot claim;

Transforming shadows into light,

Guided by wisdom in the night.

With unlimited grace, I now decree,

This burning ceremony sets me free;

As ashes fall, my Spirit soars,

Embracing renewal forevermore.


Here are some journal prompts to inspire you:

  • What aspects of my life no longer align with who I am becoming?

  • What habits or behaviors no longer serve my highest good?

  • What expectations or pressures am I ready to release myself from?

  • What boundaries do I need to set to protect my energy and well-being?

  • What clutter, physical or mental, am I ready to clear from my life?

  • What new intentions or affirmations do I want to set as I release the old?


These prompts will help guide introspection and self-discovery, paving the way for a meaningful and transformative burning or release ceremony.


It is a divine time to fill your vessels with water and charge them with magical moonbeams! I love using this Moon Water when watering my plants. Don't forget to charge your baubles, books, pens, specs, crystal, and whatever else calls you to bask in the moonlight...


Enjoy your Full Moon celebrations, Beloved!


Wrapping You in Love + Light,
