Dearest Pinkies, please welcome back Pink metaphysician and astrologer Tara Sutphen. Tonight is the full PINK moon, and Tara is here with some insight as to its significance. Not surprisingly, the Pink moon is all about getting to our truth, being okay with who we are, and gently releasing that which doesn't serve. Of course! We'll let Tara tell you the rest. Take it away, sister!
The Full Pink Moon at 8* Scorpio will culminate April 28, 2010 6:48 a.m. PDT.
What is Your Truth?
This is a time for thinking deeply, and examining changes you want in your emotional and mental framework. Look at the facts about yourself. Are you lacking self-esteem? We symbolize and personalize ourselves through our culture, creed, religion and era. We can feel lost until we develop goals, ideals and intention. Where are your values, and are they being recognized at this time? Are you in conscious contact with your beliefs and standards? You may ask yourself questions like, “am I living up to who I want to be? Am I being true to myself in love? Am I clear on who I like, what I like and why I like it?”
What are the real truths deep within?
Connection to Others
Are you numbed by disappointments, drama or trauma? Do you talk about or go over in your mind how angry you are, how your family makes you unhappy, how you have no friends, or your friends aren’t real friends, or your job is going to kill you one day? Do you slip from real thoughts and emotional reasoning to frustration over others?
Many people turn away from each other without good reason, instead of keeping their feelings at an even keel. I see many unreasonable upsets started because there are no questions asked, no feelings explored, and no resolutions encountered. There is no communication or connection. Ignore your needs and you may be able to sustain your life for five minutes, five years, or 50 years, but we do eventually have to come back to ourselves and if we’re lucky we answer to a few beloved others. Do you other people hurt or inhibit you, or is it you who puts yourself in a position to fail or to grow?
This moon aspect is all about digging for your trouble spots and taking them out for a little examination. Those personality traits that you abhor or fear in others could be part of your character as well, though I know we like to think it isn’t so. You don’t want to be like someone you resent. Search and clear up any history and issues. There is always judgment, but we needn’t care about someone else’s opinion unless it genuinely helps us achieve greater things in ourselves.
Of course, you may have a few bad habits that you need to discard for your own sake. Why do you hold onto restrictions? Are you afraid of change, or are you changing so rapidly that your life can’t stabilize? Mental illness and stress can start as bad habits. During this moon we will look at the uglies we need to reform, from the perspective of the strengths we know we seek.
Passion, Pleasure and Personal Power are our goals. How are we going to learn to love, to the depths of the universe? How are we going to learn to succeed to the highest plateau of the earth? How are we going to learn to be wise and overcome all obstacles? We continue to stretch the boundaries of our knowledge until we get it right.
Dancing under the Pink moon,
