We made it through the Retrograde and survived the shit-show of its aftermath! Puff, puff, pass to that. We’re here, it’s officially Spring, and no one can stop us from celebrating. And on this year’s 4/20 cannabis conscious day we are blessed with a particularly auspicious energy. The day before, on 4/19 in the wee hours of the morning, we are greeted with a Full Pink Moon; except this time it’s in air sign Libra…again. We had our last Full Moon in Libra on March 20th, and now we’re closing this cycle of romance, connection and harmony with another moon in the same sign.
What better way to honor and celebrate 4/20 than with a heart inspired by love, justice, and the need to share some weed? Libra after all, is ruled over by Venus; the planet of love, sexuality, beauty, and justice. This is all about feeling good and enjoying, which is what this holiday is all about.
And if you’re Jewish and celebrating Passover, which also happens to fall on 4/20, then you can totally bring a joint to your Seder, because weed is Kosher for Passover. Though it’s stated there must be a medical reason for working with cannabis, one could argue we could all use a prescription to relax.
Regardless of what you believe or how you celebrate, you can believe and celebrate the Moon and her cycles. Full Moons are the peak of the Moon’s journey through waxing and waning and it’s at this point in her 28-day cycle that Lady Luna is at her brightest. This is a time when we can manifest and when our intuition is on high; this is when the moon’s light reflects our ability to stand in our fullest power.
Full Moons …
