Awakening Moon

Isn't it great when the full moon falls at a weekend, especially in the springtime when you can really enjoy going outside to make the most of the beautiful night?

Most witches I know will be celebrating the Awakening Moon either on Saturday or Sunday, although technically the moon isn't at its fullest until the early hours of Monday morning - around 3.45am London time.

Names for April's full moon include Seed Moon, Growing Moon and Wind Moon, but I prefer its neopagan name Awakening Moon, even if it isn't particularly traditional. This really is a time of year when all the flowers, plants and trees are finally waking up and are covered in green leaves and pink or white blossom.
