How fun that today we get to celebrate the Full Pink Moon.
Every moon carries multiple names, as each culture chooses a predominant signifier for that time of the year. So Pink moon actually refers to the time when wild ground phlox also known as the herb moss pink shows its beautiful self widely. Being a flora adorer I love that connection. But I also like imagining the moon is actually pink as well. Just like I’m tired of my heavier cold-weather clothes, I like to think the moon, too, is ready to slip on a pink spring gown.
But today perhaps we can think of that pink in another way as well. Did you get to observe the full lunar eclipse? I stayed up through the wee hours and witnessed the magic show. And magical it was indeed. Although you might imagine I’d be complaining because we had yet more snow yesterday, the truth is it set a fairyland stage for the observation of the shadowing of the moon, and a lovely backdrop when the moon appeared red. So beautiful!
From a purely aesthetic standpoint it was heart-openingly gorgeous. But add in all the energetic components as well and I must say I’m still dancing in celebration. I hope you are as well.
During my conversations with the moon and the energies last night, I couldn’t help but think of everyone else on the planet receiving the same rays of beauty, the same energy, the same vibrations; and how even though it’s the same source we’re all activated and experience it differently because we’re all unique in our soul templates and expressions. It’s as though we all have different circuits for the electricity to flow through. It delighted me, and filled me with awe, to think about that.
And just as I imagined countless folks watching the moon with me last night, I thought about countless people who’ve watched the moon throughout all the weavings of time here. And I thought about Rumi’s beautiful poem:
“At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door
and open the love-window.
The moon won’t use the door,
only the window.”
Wishing you a wonderful day and hope you invite the moon to breathe into you.
