The Pink Moon falls in the sign of Scorpio this year, and it will be an emotional one for all of us. The Moon is infamous for making us feel gloomy and emotional, and because it is so close to the Earth, its attraction will be stronger than normal. All things considered, don't expect to have your mind at its most clear and rational when the Pink Moon is around.
Pink has been used since ancient times to symbolize love and romance. The color originates from the name "pomegranate" which means "poppy seed eaten with honey". In folklore, pomegranates are said to guarantee everlasting love when paired together under a wedding ceremony tree. It's no surprise then that this colorful fruit has been associated with marriage for many centuries.
In today's world, pink symbolsizes feminine beauty and luxury. If you see someone wearing pink, give them applause because they are probably feeling proud or happy. However, if you come across someone in distress, wear white to show support instead.
The Pink Moon will influence relationships this year, but it won't be easy for anyone involved. Both Venus and Mars are located in romantic Scorpio, so anything can happen. A fight between love and money may arise, meaning there's no way to predict what kind of mood everyone will be in.
Because the Pink Moon is in Scorpio, astrologers think it is also a wonderful time to let go of what is no longer benefiting you. Each full moon rises in a distinct constellation, and the Pink Moon will be in the constellation of Scorpio. "In astrology, full moons symbolise endings, which is especially fitting in Scorpio," Mckean explained. "Scorpios are known for their intense relationships as well as their intense passions; perhaps this moon is signalling that it's time to let go of something that is hindering your progress towards achieving your goals."
The word "scorpion" comes from the Latin word scorpius, which means "archer". This is because these creatures shoot poison-filled stings from their tails to kill insects for food. Although they cannot sting humans, they can still cause serious injury with their claws. For example, they are responsible for most cases of blindness in animals.
Scorpios are believed to be born under a moonless sky, indicating that stars, planets, and other objects can have an impact on who they are as people. They are said to be intelligent, passionate, strong-willed, and even mysterious. Some scholars believe that everything about them is contradictory; some see them as beautiful while others see them as frightening. No two Scorpios are said to look alike; each one has a unique set of traits that define them.
Spiritually, this lunar occurrence represents a period of renewal and introspection as we welcome spring. The gravitational pull of the pink supermoon will be felt emotionally in a variety of ways on the evening of the pink supermoon. It will also bring an end to the emotional cycle that began on April 22, 2020, with the Taurus new moon. This event is likely to trigger feelings of loss and grief as we come to accept that which is no longer possible to hold onto.
Pink moons occur when the Earth is directly between the Sun and Moon, preventing any direct sunlight or dark from reaching them. Because only the Earth's shadow reaches them, these eclipses are referred to as "Earth-girded" or "indirect." They appear red because all visible light waves are either reflected back toward Earth or absorbed. The only light reaching space comes from the atmosphere during a total lunar eclipse. The color varies depending on how much dust is present in the atmosphere at the time of the eclipse.
Lunar eclipses are often called "red" or "blood moons," because of the color that reflects from the globe of the Earth towards our eyes. However, only about one-quarter of the lunar surface is bright enough to see with the unaided eye, so this effect is seen by everyone who looks up at the moon on a clear night without optical aids such as glasses or telescopes.
The moon sign influences how we express our emotions, behave in emotional situations, and respond to the emotions of others. Because the moon swings across the zodiac so swiftly, it is the planet with the biggest influence over our daily moods. That explains why some people become overly emotional during a full moon. They are under the spell of the moon sign they have.
The signs of the moon can also trigger certain behaviors in us. For example, if your moon sign is Cancer, then you are emotionally sensitive and have a deep need for connection with others. You might show this sensitivity by clinging excessively to someone or something that will not last forever. The moon sign Leo is about expression and pride; therefore, these traits might come out in you during a full moon. You might act too boldly or proudly, trying to prove yourself to others or simply doing things because you can. The sign Sagittarius has nothing to do with feelings; instead, it has to do with philosophy and religion. During a full moon, you might find yourself thinking deeply about important issues in your life or seeking spiritual guidance.
The signs of the moon can also impact the way we feel about other people's emotions. If your moon sign is Gemini, for example, then you are curious about other people's emotions and enjoy learning about them through conversation. You might show this interest by asking many questions about others' feelings.
This is how the moon impacts your mood and wellness, as well as the optimal times to make decisions for your zodiac sign. Due to its near approach to the Earth, a rare full moon will appear around 15.53 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019, dubbed as a "Super Moon." The "Snow Moon" is its name.
When the Moon is in full view of the Earth, it appears about 12% larger than when it is at its most distant point from us, called apogee. Because the gravity of Earth is pulling it away from us, the Moon expands laterally, or on all sides. This is why lunar eclipses are always visible on Earth - because even though they're happening over another part of the world, they still have the ability to cast their shadow across the planet.
Lunar eclipses are one of the few natural phenomena that can completely block out sunlight during nighttime hours. As the Moon passes through Earth's shadow, its appearance changes from bright to dark over certain regions. The eclipse is also called a "black moon" because it disappears behind Earth's atmosphere where it no longer reflects any light from the Sun. The entire eclipse will last about an hour and forty-five minutes, but it will feel like three hours due to how quickly it goes by.
People have been observing lunar eclipses for thousands of years, but it was not until 1866 that people started witnessing something new: A total lunar eclipse.
This celestial event has the greatest impact on the signs of Leo, Sagittarius, and Scorpio. Because Leo's character does not generally mesh well with Scorpio's jealous side, you may feel overly passionate and somewhat constrained. You'll also need to prepare for some significant learning. The more you know about astronomy, the better prepared you will be for these changes.
The signs of Cancer, Virgo, and Capricorn are less affected by the pink moon. In fact, a new moon in any sign will bring about new beginnings if it is full moon, nothing will change because it is a monthly event. However, if the new moon is dark, that means no light from the moon is hitting the earth which would otherwise help illuminate its surface. So if you are trying to read signs, count stars, or navigate at night, this could be an issue for you.
Finally, there is a possibility of violence during a full moon. This is particularly true if the moon is blood red, as it was during the lunar eclipse in 1918. Your heart will be pounding, your palms will be sweating, and you may even have trouble speaking properly. All of this is normal under such circumstances and doesn't mean that you will commit acts of violence; rather, it is just your body's way of telling you to be careful or you might say or do something you can't take back.
