It’s named ‘pink’ in honor of a wildflower, not because it is actually pink.
Expect to see the most glowing super full moon, colored in pink, in the sky on April 7. The term supermoon describes a celestial event when a full moon occurs on the same night the moon gets its closest point to the Earth, perigee. On the other hand, apogee is when the moon is in its furthest point from Earth in orbit.
On April 7, the full moon will reach its peak at 10:35 EDT.
Besides the fact we call the moon pink, it will have its ordinary color. When the moon is positioned low in the sky, it will be golden orange, and as it rises, it will be brighter, until it is white. The name pink moon comes from the flowers creeping phlox, and they bloom in the early period of spring, when the full moon in April appears, per Catherine Boeckmann at the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
The full moon in Libra that will rise on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, increases the risks which are linked to the coronavirus pandemic we are all facing. It creates an aspect to Neptune connected with health imbalances, and it is the planet od illness and infection. Furthermore, this supermoon will be more dangerous because Mars square Uranus. The impulsive influence that these two planets have will make people rebellious and aggressive.
Jupiter aligns Pluto, and it amplifies the risks with a positive aspect to Mercury and gives an understanding and common sense. If you don’t know what it means, the collaboration among friends and neighbors is the solution to be safe and happy while this situation is lasting, while the moon is in such a difficult phase.
The meaning of the full moon.
Sun, contrary to the moon, brings the home, family, and intimate relationships into a sharper focus in the next two weeks. The forces that are opposing, like work and home, what we need and what we want, make an inner tension and external pressures. A situation like this can take us to conflict and will drain our energy. All the influences the moon has will reach their peak when it is full; during that time, we will be affected dangerously.
In cases like this, we need to take advantage of our increased emotional strengths and intuition, and we will overcome all the challenges in our relationship. The subconscious awareness will provide us with a balanced look at our relationships. Also, during these hard times, we will all see dynamics and negativity between our beloved and us.
Full Moon Danger.
Mars square Uranus eight hours before the full moon has a bad and dangerous influence. The people will expose their erratic and impulsive behavior during the rebellion against the restrictions imposed by the authorities.
We will all have the tendencies to react rashly and not be aware of the consequences that will cause disruption or conflict. Because we won’t be able to hide our erratic energy, we will show our craziness, creativity, and artistic side in a safe environment.
We, as human beings, need to find a creative outlet socially, sexually, or with a hobby. Our dangerous desires need to be eliminated from our system, which will be manifested without upsetting others. Also, we need to avoid some impulsive actions and reactions which will force us to make a mistake. For those people who respect the self-isolation, and will stay in their homes, April will give you numerous celestial events which can be seen outside in the night sky. For example, on Friday, Venus will be visible near the cluster of stars called Pleiades (Seven Sisters), announces Alan MacRobert at Sky and Telescope.
Michel Nichols is a director of public observing a Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, and he says that people can stargaze very quickly and close to their home. The light pollution and air pollution can affect the appearance of the stars. But, nowadays the air pollution is drastically reduced, and the factories don’t work, so the star appearance should be easily spotted.
Also, Nichols explains that for this event, there is no perfect place, because wherever you are, you can see the phenomenon. Maybe some cities are better than others for observing this celestial event, but get to know the sky where we are.
