I’ve just found out from a lovely blog I follow by US artist, Adrienne Vita that a ‘Pink Moon’ will be visible tonight.
I immediately had to listen to this, my favourite Nick Drake song and wanted to share my own Pink Moon artworks.
Sadly, the moon won’t actually be visibly pink. It was named the Pink Moon by Native Americans due to the blooming of a pink flower, wild ground phlox, at this time of year.
Symbolically, this moon is supposed to represent a time of new things blooming and as Adrienne Vita writes, “Having compassion for yourself and others. It’s a time of slowing down, stepping back and being patient,” which has cheered me up no end as I’m trying to be patient while waiting for practical house-moving things to fall into place before we can move on to greener pastures.
Adrienne writes, “Be patient and gentle with yourself around this time until the next full moon.”
