26th & 27th April : Pink Super Full Moon. This is the first supermoon of 2021. It is named after pink flowers called Phlox Subulata which bloom in some regions of the northern hemisphere.Despite its name, there will not be any noticeable difference in colour.
The full moon will be near its closest point to the Earth as it orbits. When the moon is closest to the Earth on the same night as a full moon, it is known as a supermoon. The next supermoon will be visible in May 2021.
As the moon is nearer the Earth, its gravitational pull is stronger and this makes the tides higher. Meteorologists believe higher tides combined with high winds may lead to coastal flooding or produce more intense storms.
This Super Full Moon is in Scorpio. The moon has an influence on our emotions so you may experience heightened emotions during this time. You may even experience headaches or vivid dreams. Scorpio is a sign noted for its intensity. We must recognize where we need to let go of control and let go of negative energies. Full Moons are a time for release. The moon and the sun are exactly opposite of one another and the moon’s glow is very visible during this time. Full Moons bring clarity and revelations, they show us what we need to know and what we need to address at a certain time. The moon affects all zodiac signs, but Scorpio and Taurus will feel it the most. Click here to make Moon Water .
