Full Pink Moon 2023

The Wisdom of the Full Pink Moon



The luminous full moon in April shines gently over this colorful transition into Spring. In the Northern Hemisphere we celebrate this season of renewal with the Full Pink Moon of April. There are many stunning displays of pink from our plant kingdom, however, this moon is specifically named for the abundance of tiny pink phlox covering the land.

The Pink Full Moon joins her magic with phlox flowers to say goodbye to the winter while welcoming warmer brighter days.

The beauty of the phlox flowers is their ability to unite the heart with the soul by aligning the heart and crown chakras. The heart chakra holds the color vibrations of green with sparkling flashes ...

Full Sugar Moon 2023

The Deeper Meaning of the Full Sugar Moon


The sweet Full Sugar Moon of March is the last full Moon of winter. The name gifted to this moon honors the harvest of the sap of the Maple trees.

The magical collaboration between the March full moon and the maple tree brings us to a point of balance and practicality. The maple tree is symbolic of abundance and success. 

Maple carries with it both feminine and masculine energies and is associated with the element of water. Bring in the energy of the West to assist you in cleansing and healing during meditation.

Full Snow Moon




The Full Snow Moon allows us time for self-reflection. It is a transitional time between the cold winter and the return of Spring.

In many areas of the Northern Hemisphere, the snow covers the ground showing us an illusion of a sparkling warm comforter. Illusions can be confusing. So, use 
this moon to unveil your deepest desires. Determine what it is that brings you comfort in your life.

Imagine the sight of a glowing full moon floating in the evening sky, illuminating a snow-covered mountain, inspiring your heart to open up to your limitless possibilities. You become synchronized with this cycle of change in nature. The cold stillness of winter is shifting to Spring ever ......

You may find yourself using this time to reminisce. It feels as though the past, present and future have gathered together to encourage inner reflection. Let your thoughts rest on everything you have accomplished in the past year. Glance briefly into your distant past and allow yourself to recognize events that brought you to this wonderful point in your life.

Full Sturgeon Moon 2022

Our Last Supermoon of 2022

The last of our four supermoons in 2022 will rise in all her brilliance on Thursday August 11. Prepare yourself for her heightened emotions and the desire for dramatic changes.

This Supermoon is called the Full Sturgeon Moon. It is named after the Sturgeon fish living in the Great Lakes and in Lake Champlain as they were most readily caught during the full moon of August.


The Lake Sturgeon is often referred to as a " living fossil" since it can live up to 150 years. This strange looking fish can grow to the size of a small car. For me this full moon stands for longevity, expansion and survival.

The moon will be slightly closer to Earth making her appear larger ............

Full Thunder Moon 2022




Each full moon was carefully named to keep track of the season in the regions where our ancestors resided.  The July moon, in the USA came to be known as the Thunder Moon due to the frequent thunderstorms during this time of the year.

In some areas it was also known as the Buck Moon which reference the shedding and regrowth of the male deer antlers.

The light of this full moon is perfect for you to discard those things, thoughts or old emotional wounds that keep you from your happiness. Shed them to make space for the clarity of new beginnings to shifting into your life.

For our precious moon sensitive souls, you may feel the intensity of this full thunder moon as it ............
