FULL PINK MOON ON APRIL 15TH The name April comes from the Greek Goddess Aphrodite, identified with Roman Venus. Due to the Christian holiday of Easter sometimes falls in this month. The Anglo-Saxons and Franks know it as Easter Month; of course, this was originally a Pagan holiday named for the Goddess Eostre, deity of Spring, fertility, and New Life. Aprilis month in the Romans calendar was a time of unfolding leaves and flowers. April is a time of “New Beginnings”. Many times in our lives (whether we know it or not), we must start again. Many times we have no idea when it’s going to happen. Sometimes these beginnings go off in not so positive directions. Some of these might be; new relationships; marriage; the birth of a child; new job the end of a marriage/relationship; an illness or aftermath of one, or even the death of a loved one. Too many times we don’t give these beginnings the attention and consideration they deserve.
