Moon Musings

Full Moon 2

March’s Full Moon 2017 just occurred on the 12th. The New Moon will come later in the month on the 28th which signifies the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.

The next Full Moon will be out on Tuesday, April 11.  April’s Full Moon is known as the Pink Moon, but don’t expect it to look particularly pink. It is named after pink flowers called wild ground phlox, which bloom in early spring and become widespread throughout the U.S. and Canada this time of year.

For me, as I am not much of a mystic, I will think of Nick Drake and know I’ll have to get out my paints…..and maybe my guitar.

“Pink Moon”

Saw it written and I saw it say

Pink moon is on its way

And none of you stand so tall

Pink moon gonna get you all

[Chorus]

And it’s a pink moon

Yes, a pink moon

Pink, pink, pink, pink

Pink moon

Pink, pink, pink, pink

Pink moon
