Friends, frenemies and former lovers, get ready because a magnificent pink super moon is going to give us a big kiss from the sky tomorrow, and your telescopes better be ready. Here’s when to watch the moon in Australia, and what exactly it means for you and your star sign.

Moon mates, call the squad and prepare for the pink super moon, which will be shining over Australian land on Tuesday, April 27. It’s the first of only two super moons this year, which are rare occurrences that are quite easy to miss.

This year’s super pink moon gets its name from the pink phlox, a US flower that blooms at the same time as the appearance of the moon. Is it actually a bright shade of pink? No, I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but it isn’t. What you will see in the sky though is a massive moon that’s way brighter than usual, so that’s a win.

The next super moon coming our way isn’t even that far, with the super blood moon coming to kick our asses on Wed, May 26. Blood moons are always drastic affairs when it comes to astrology, but the pink moon is more joyous, so let’s cheers to that.

Astrologically, super moons are said to have stronger gravitational pulls than normal moons, thus affecting us on emotional levels in stronger ways than usual. Scientifically though, super moons are just full moons that occur when the moon is closest to the earth (also known as lunar perigee).

It’s a lot to take in about a rock floating in space, so let’s just talk about when you can catch the pink super moon at its fullest, and what it means for you.

What does the super pink moon mean for my star sign?

Crystals out, summoning circles painted and Instagram accounts on public friends, ’cause the super pink moon is about to shift our emotions in spectacular ways.

Leo, I’m so sorry, but this is a lovely time for everyone but you. Let’s dive straight in.


The super pink moon is going to be a time when you start to look at your money differently. If you were a stingy bitch before, that’s going to soon change. If you spent like a madman, you’re now going to feel more inclined to hold on to your pennies.

Either way, your way of thinking is going to improve. Sometimes the best approach to money is to find a perfect balance between spending and saving, instead of just doing one without the other.

You, probably.


It’s the time for partnerships, my horned friends, and no I don’t mean in business. I mean it’s time to start getting out there and dating around, if you’re single of course.

Now is the perfect time to strike up conversations with people and see what magic happens.

All my bad binches in relationships, you’ll start to notice a stronger affinity towards your partner, which always makes for a hot time.

Or, there’s always pizza.


The super pink moon is about to activate all of your motivation. There really isn’t much more to say here apart from the fact that you should use this opportunity to get shit done.

No more lounging about and dreaming of the next time you can sleep for one thousand years, the super pink moon doesn’t want any of that, and you are but its humble, motivated servant.

You’ve got work to do.


The super pink moon is a time of enhanced creativity and joy, so soak it up and get out the old canvas and paints.

You’ll start to notice a big burst of imagination and wonder, which is definitely good news, because it means you’ll have some distraction from all the crying you usually do.

I’m an artiste baby.


Leo, babes, I’m so sorry. The super pink moon is kinda done with your shit, and will let you know it too.

Now is a time when cracks in your relationships will start to show themselves, be they with friends, lovers or family. It won’t be pretty realising that more people are starting to get on your nerves than before, but just remember that sometimes it’s a good thing to reevaluate your surroundings.

Sorry Leo, this definitely isn’t a fun one.

Stay away from Leos season.


Truly you lot get the simplest of astrological impacts from the super pink moon, and that’s in the sphere of confidence.

Want some confidence? Well, this period of time is going to be great for you. Text that person that you’re into, go do that thing you’ve been dying to do, open up to someone special about how much they mean to you. Do it, there’s no better time!

Flaws? What flaws?


The super pink moon is going to encourage a whole lot of honesty from you lot, but that’s none of my business.

Holding onto a secret? Keeping something hidden deep within? Let’s just tap into the old truth booth and let it out, because now is a better time than ever.

Let it out.


Super pink moon season, or any super moon season at that, is like fuel for a Scorpio’s demonic plans for world domination. It’s often a time that they become stronger, and transform even more into their true forms.

Don’t be a fool and leave your Scorpio friends on read for a couple of days, because they will strike you, and it will not be pretty.

Me with my Scorpio friends.


Now is the time to open that wild mouth of yours and do some truth-telling, for once. More specifically, it’s time to open up to those close to you and let them in.

Your walls don’t always need to be up, my Sagittarian brethren. Trust me, it’s way better once you let people into your life and stop closing off.

Fire up the smoke machine and get those disco lights blasting, because the super pink moon is about to fill you up with some extreme levels of happiness.

I don’t know how it’s going to do it, but all signs lead to impeccable feelings of joy, exuberance, and bliss. Now, if you need me, I’m going to trick the super pink moon into thinking my star sign is Capricorn, because this sounds like a TREAT.

Yes to all of this.


Not to sound like a boring, basic bitch, but this is a time when you need to start focusing on your career, my Aquariums.

There’s always one career-focused astrology reading when we do these things, and I’m sorry to say it’s your turn to take the work-related advice.

This is a great time for finding work or getting into a new job, but it’s also a time when you need to buckle down and focus on what you’re doing in the workplace. Good luck out there!

It’s tough to hear, but it’s true.


Fish friends! The super pink moon, I’m sorry to say, is about worrying. That’s the central theme here, and it’s going to stick on you for a couple of days like a bad smell.

My goodness, I’m only joking. This period of time is about a lack of worry. All worries, in the bin. Worries? I hardly know ’em.

Draw a bath, take a chill pill and relax, as the super pink moon calms you the hell out.
