When is the Pink Full Moon?

The Pink Full Moon appears on April 16, 2022. You benefit from this glorious Full Moon energy for the entire 30-day lunar cycle which spans from April 16 to May 16, 2022.

You can observe the Full Moon for several hours throughout the day and night, weather permitting.

To know the peak times of the April Pink Full Moon, visit the Lunar Time and Date site. There you will learn the ideal times to view the moon, depending on your location in the world.

What is the spiritual meaning of Pink Moon? 

You might think that the Pink Moon refers to the color that will appear when this Full Moon rises. However, that's not the case. Like the other Full Moons, the Pink Moon was named after Native American, Colonial American, and European societies.  

The Pink Moon is a time when the wildflowers begin to bloom in the Northern Hemisphere. The barren winter landscape transforms into a springtime wonderland.

Other names given to the April Full Moon are "Breaking Ice Moon", "Moon When the Streams are Again Navigable", "Budding Moon of Plants and Shrubs", and "Moon of the Red Grass Appearing". All of these refer to the changing weather and landscape.

Additional Native and Colonial names for the April Pink Moon allude to the animals that come out to play in the spring. These include "Moon When the Ducks Come Back", "Moon When the Geese Lay Eggs", "Frog Moon", and "Sucker Moon" (after the suckerfish). 

What does the Pink Moon mean for your life?

While so many of the Full Moons are a time for work, overcoming challenges, and advancing your soul, the Pink Moon is about love. The birds and the bees are out doing their things. You can get busy in love too!

If you've become accustomed to being cooped up at home, it might be hard to get your mojo back in gear. You may have lost touch with your instincts and your intuition, but the Pink Full Moon is a time to regain these important qualities.

During the next 30-day lunar cycle, you are going to let go and trust in the flow of the Universe. The skies are singing a song. The moon, sun, stars, and planets do a harmonious dance. They don't have to stress and toil and try to control each motion, they rely on the perfection of the universe to take care of logistics.

What a great time to let go and let love flow. Look around you, follow the lead of the squirrels you see in the garden and the hummingbirds ruffling through the pink flowers.

Humans like to think of themselves as masters of the kingdom, but the truth is that we share this earth. Look to the plants and animals to guide you back to the state of natural happiness.

Revel in love, life, and just being. That's what the Pink Moon is all about.

What are Moon Crystals?

Moonstone, Selenite, and Labradorite are the three mightiest Moon crystals. They harmonize with the Moon's frequency. You must use them during each lunar event, including the Hunter Moon.

Visit the Moon Crystal Collection to discover stones that call to you. Learn about how each of the three Moon Crystals benefits you:

rainbow moonstone sphere
Moonstone: This is the number one moon crystal. It is the staple crystal for all your lunar practices. Moonstone aligns strongest with the Full Moon. Its bright and luminous qualities show you the way ahead. Moonstone holds the power of a million moons and delivers it to the palm of your hands.


labradorite sphere
Labradorite: Full of moon magic, this dark beauty flashes with rainbows like the midnight sky flecked with celestial stars. Labradorite aligns with the New Moon, helping you find new beginnings in the darkness. Use Labradorite and feel like you are being guided by your spirit guides, angels, and all the beneficial beings of the unseen world.


white selenite sphere
Selenite: Named after Goddess Selene, this moon crystal glows with a glorious silky white sheen. Selenite aligns with the crescent moon, protecting your aura through the journeys of life. Use Selenite and feel hopeful that the world is working in your favor because you believe miracles do come true.

7 Crystal Rituals for the Full Moon

Now that you know a bit about the trinity of moon crystals and the special crystal for this month, learn how to use them under the Full Moon. 

Ritual Idea #1: Cleanse, Charge, and Program Crystals under the Full Moon

It is ideal to gather your Moon Crystals even before the Full Moon happens so that you can properly prepare to cleanse them beforehand. After they are cleansed, you will charge them under the Full Moon and then program them with your intention. By doing so, the stones are supercharged to help you on your mission throughout the lunar month. Do this with your moon crystal balls, shapes, and jewelry.

Ritual Idea #2: Crystal Healing Mandalas under the Full Moon

Instead of just charging your crystals under the moonlight, why not arrange them in a beautiful mandala formation? Create works of art with the stones, and then carefully lay them under the moonlight for charging. If possible, put your mandala in the garden overnight to absorb the healing light.

Ritual Idea #3: Crystal Layouts under the Full Moon

Why not recharge your entire body instead of just your crystals in the moonlight? Lie down in a comfortable place during the Full Moon, preferably near a window or even outside. Place your Moon Crystals on your body and along your chakras. You can also place them around your body instead, just in case you fall asleep. Not only are your stones getting supercharged for the month, but so are you!

Ritual Idea #4: Dance Under the Full Moon in a Crystal Grid 

Form a giant grid around your space, indoors or outdoors. This grid includes a medley of Moon Crystals in the shape of a circle, square, rectangle, or even a triangle. As the Full Moon rises, dance within the grid of crystals. You are sure to feel supercharged! Have extra time? Meditate in your grid, do yoga in your grid, read in your grid... anything that benefits your soul is right for you to do in your grid.

Ritual Idea #5: Crystal Ball Gazing under the Full Moon

Did you know that the moon is revered for its psychic powers? It's no surprise that healers, gypsies, witches, and all that are drawn to metaphysics do practices under the lunar moon. Grab hold of your Moonstone, Selenite, or Labradorite ball and do crystal ball gazing. You will receive a rush of visions and messages, even more than on an ordinary day. 

Ritual Idea #6: Wear your Moon Jewelry during the Full Moon

This is an easy and simple, yet powerful ritual. Make sure you have your moon jewelry on during the Full Moon. The jewelry will charge up nicely, bringing you a chance for new beginnings and a fresh start. If you're on the go during the Full Moon, you'll still have lunar power with you. If you're at home, you should wear your Moon jewelry during all and any of the other rituals you are doing. The more energy you get, the better.

Ritual Idea #7: Create a Moon Elixir under the Full Moon

Why not create a moon elixir that you can use all month long? Moonstone or Labradorite can be used for your elixir potions and drinks, but Selenite cannot because of its fragility. Create a jug of crystal water or crystal oils so you have the moon's energy all jarred up for your convenience and benefit.

There are lots and lots of activities you can do during the Full Moon with Moon Crystals. Check out our Peace not Panic series and the 25 "Stuck Indoor" ritual and craft ideas. Now that you're allowed outside again, do them in the garden if you desire!

Hi Elle, unfortunately we do not have a regular source for authentic Sugilite. Once in a while our trusted vendors do get Sugilite in, but it’s not regular. Good luck on your search. It’s good to be skeptical of fakes, just keep educating yourself on real vs fake Sugilite and you will feel confident when you do come across genuine stones.

Here is what we have in our limited stock of Sugilite at the moment:

Elle - April 4, 2022

Hello there. just found you on youtube. Love your channel , so informative..will be watching all your videos.

Question for you. Do you have any resources for purchasing authentic Sugelite? I am cautious about buying it for an unknown source as i have heard there are some stone that are not genuine being sold . Thank you in advance for your help and wonderful resource on Crystals,

Sheila Satin - April 26, 2021

Hi Khadijah, thanks for writing. You can find instructions and a video@

khadijah - April 26, 2021

I need proper instructions on stone and crystal cleansing.

Sheila Satin - April 26, 2021

Hi Taylor, I generally go by the rule that if they are on the harder side of the Mohs Scale of Hardness, about a 6 or above, they will be okay in water.

HOWEVER, if they are highly polished, keep in mind that prolonged salt water can wear away the polish over time. The Quartz family, Aventurines, Agates, Jasper, Onyx usually do fine in water. I would be wary of placing Selenite, Calcite, Aragonites, Lepidolites and Fluorites in water.

Here is an article and video that may help:

If you are unsure, I’d keep them out of water or just give them a quick rinse rather than a salt soak.

Taylor C - April 26, 2021

Hi! i was wondering how to cleanse a couple of my crystals. I have Himalayan salt and was planning on leaving a couple in salt water. The crystals I have are rose quartz, obsidian, clear quartz, ametrine, selenite, sunstone, moonstone, onyx, fluorite, dalmatian jasper, blue aventurine, orange calcite, lepidolite, and aragonite. I was just researching to make sure I knew which crystals were safe to cleanse with salt water and how to cleanse the ones that aren’t. Which of my crystals are safe, and how do I cleanse the others? Thank you ❤️

Sheila Satin - April 26, 2021
