Although April’s full moon is known as the Pink Moon, don’t expect it to look particularly pink! It’s named after pink flowers called wild ground phlox, which bloom in early spring and appear throughout the United States and Canada.
In many cultures, including Native American tribes, people named the full moons throughout the year as a way to keep track of time.
The April Pink Full Moon signifies the arrival of Spring (hint: the moon is really not pink — it is the pink flowers that are pink).
The name can be traced back to North American aboriginal peoples, who referred to the full moon in April as a pink moon after a type of wildflower that blooms early in the year.
It is known most commonly as the Pink Moon, which references pink moss, or wild ground phlox — one of the first plants to bloom after the winter months.
The date of Easter is the first Sunday following the full moon, which itself follows the spring equinox.

What does illness have to do with Full Moons?
While we are chronically ill we can sync up to circadian rhythms (like the full moons) to help us move through illness. As we see the relationship to how we feel and the full moon cycle, we can work with it instead of it working against us.
This helps us move through chronic illness instead of getting stuck in it.
Parasites become more active during the full moon and can make us feel worse.
But… if we use this time to release them from our bodies, we can move forward more effecively on a healing journey.
A full moon occurs every 29.5 days. I use the Farmer’s Almanac to keep track of the upcoming full moon.
Take off the rose-colored glasses and get to work on the parasite detox during April’s full moon.
