How The Full Moon On April 26 Will Affect Zodiac Water Signs

As April comes to an end, it brings us the Pink super moon — a phenomenon that only happens once a year and has special significance in astrology. This super moon is bigger and brighter than regular moons, but don't let the name fool you — it won't look pink. According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, this April moon is aligned with springtime and the blossoming of a wildflower native to eastern North America known as "moss pink" — hence, the name. This full moon in Scorpio will grace the sky on April 26 at 11:42 p.m. EDT (via Chani). "It signifies a blooming period of spring when life has not only emerged after a long hibernation in winter, but that it's gaining strength and vitality," astrologer Cindy Mckean told Insider about the Pink moon.

While there is no scientific evidence linking the full moon with changes in human behavior, astrologers claim that it can mess with your emotions and sleep schedule (via Elite Daily). How can the Pink moon affect zodiac water signs?

The Pink moon is a time to take risks and be your authentic self

Astrologer Athena Perrakis, Ph.D, told Reader's Digest that this moon will shake us. "The full moon affects our bodies and it affects the oceans. Since our bodies are made up, proportionally, of so much water, it's easy to understand how the moon would pull us and sway us just like the ocean." The Pink moon paired with Mars and Uranus will shed light on our biggest concerns and then it will come down to you to take action (via Hello Giggles).

Emotional Cancer, this will be your time to become a risk-taker –thanks to the help and encouragement of those close to you (via Hello Giggles). When it comes to you, assertive Scorpio, this is your moon. It's time to be your authentic self and let yourself be vulnerable to understand your feelings better (via Bustle). Wise Pisces, start living in the present because it's never coming back. If you let yourself enjoy the moment, the emotional reward will be huge (via British Vogue).

If you know that full moons can affect your emotional balance, make sure to do mindful practices that help you reconnect with inner voice including meditation, journaling, and yoga.
