The full pink supermoon peaks at 8:33pm PST, April 26th, in the water sign, Scorpio.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “April’s full Moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of a certain wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox sibilant—commonly called creeping phlox or moss phlox—which also went by the name ‘moss pink.’ 

Thanks to this seasonal association, this full Moon came to be called the ‘Pink’ Moon!

Here's what my favorite astrologists have to say about this full moon:
I chose Ladybug for this lunation because one bit me a few days before the full moon.  According to,
www.spirit animal.info, this little bug is a, “ Symbol of good luck, the ladybug is said to give blessings to those she encounters. Master in the art of metamorphosis, she transforms from a hideous larva to a beautiful insect adorned with bright colors. This totem animal is a powerful ally to make important changes in your life and go through your life’s journey with ease. Let’s discover its encouraging message: Believe in yourself and dare!  Whether you meet the ladybug in reality or in a dream, it is generally considered a symbol of good luck and happiness.  Ladybug also symbolizes “innocence, true love, importance of lightness, divine intervention, and going beyond illusion.” Ladybug teaches us, “the importance of staying alert to avoid pitfalls and the need to know yourself well to make the right life choices.”
According to, www.spirit-animals.com, “The appearance of Ladybug symbolism heralds a time of good luck. Moreover, it means that wishes and dreams are coming to fruition. Higher goals and new heights are now possible. In other words, worries begin to dissipate and new happiness comes about. This spirit animal also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. Let things flow at their natural pace. In due course of time, our wishes will all come true.”

Morganite is a member of the beryl family and is sometimes referred to as “Pink Emerald”.  I chose it for this lunation because I recently acquired some of this rare light pink stone for the first time.  It’s energies have been calling to me and I plan to create a few one of a kind pieces to sell.
Morganite is a heart and upper crown chakra stone that inspires divine love and romance.  It
 activates, clears and energizes the heart chakra.  Morganite is said to bring more love into your life.  It has a gentle, innocent and soothing energy.  It also promotes healing, especially in women.  Morganite’s high yet gentle vibrations awaken the divine feminism within.  It helps to release feelings of guilt and shame.  It inspires compassion and understanding.  It is an amazingly powerful stone to use to strengthen romantic relationships.  It helps to increase patience and respect, both self respect and respect for others. Morganite helps men balance their feminine and masculine energies, while still maintaining their masculinity.  It increases intuition and strengthens spirituality.  Morganite helps fascilitate a better connection with one’s Angels and spirit guides.  

 

Our Tucson adventure began with seeing this coyote near my parent’s house.  He sat there while several people photographed him.  I think he was posing! 

We had a few days to hang out with my parents before setting up our booth for the Tucson Gem Show.  We explored the Sonoita Wine Country, just a little over an hour away.

This was our booth at the Miner’s Co-op showcase at this year’s Tucson Gem Show.  The show went from April 8th - 25th.  We had three separate “shops”, to the left was the raw materials and slabs, the middle section was cut stones and high end specimens, the right section was jewelry.

 

We sold quite a bit of our Avropium Gems Silica matrix stone find!  People were naturally drawn to it and we sold slabs, raw and cabochons.

 

 We had sections of Gigi Moon Jewelry, Cosmic Aether Jewelry and other jewelry. 

 

This year’s Tucson Gem Show was definitely strange compared to other years.  It wasn’t nearly as busy as last years.  There were only 25 out of 49 showcases. I was so grateful to be there even though it wasn’t as busy as normal.  The last day, a huge F-0 strength dust devil flew right into our booth.  Thank goodness our trailer took the brunt of it and only one canopy and a few pieces of jewelry were damaged.  It toppled over a few of the other vendors tents, too, but luckily no one was seriously injured.  We went out with a bang, I’d say!


The best part of having the gem show in April vs February was seeing the Saguaro cactus and other desert plants bloom.


 After the show ended, we spent some time with Scott’s “Viking” friend, Roark, who took us in a hike to see the, “ancients”.  Petroglyphs from thousands of years ago.

 

 

We saw the sun set about four different times as we hiked back.  It was absolutely gorgeous! 

My favorite score from the Tucson Gem Show was the elusive, unicorn rare BLUE GARNET!!!
For years, it was common knowledge in the gem world that Garnets come in every color BUT blue.  I’ve always believed they would discover a blue garnet in my life time, and, finally, they have!  What’s even more exciting is that they change color in different light!!

Behold, the extremely rare Color Change Blue Garnets from Tanzania!  
These Tanzanian gems change from from blue in daylight to purple in incandescent light.
These are 1.5mm - 1.8mm in size.  I made myself the first stacker ring and will offer them for sale at $70 on my website.  I’m so grateful snd excited to have one and some to offer.  I will also be uploading new Chakra Gem Necklaces, one of a kind Lemurian Seed Crystal and Citrine necklaces, and a Palo Santo crystal perfume blend so stay tuned!

I’m thrilled to announce our collaboration with one of my favorite intuitives, KV!  I have followed Aquarius Nation for years and have enjoyed and benefitted from her energy updates and moon mapping.  Now she is guided to gather like minded creatives and promote and sell their artwork online! Scott and I are heading to Taos to meet her in person!  I’m so excited.  We plan to mosey our way through Silver City, Albuquerque and Santa Fe and hit as many hot springs as possible!

I created this Chakra Gemstone Necklace to buy exclusively through KV & Co.  We will be supplying crystals for her to sell online as well as some of my reiki charged crystal perfumes.  I’ll make sure to announce it when the products are available!
