April's Full Moon

This is the first Full Moon of Spring and is called the Pink Moon to celebrate the return of the many wildflowers. It is positioned very near Spica, the brilliant binary star in the constellation Virgo. This star marks the shaft of wheat in the left hand of the Virgin who was named Demeter or Ceres by the Greeks and Romans; Ceres being the goddess of ‘all things that grow’. It would seem appropriate at this Full Moon to make sure to acknowledge the abundance in our lives upon which we thrive.
