The Hare Moon is the Full Moon seen in April, and it represents the connection between the Moon's energy and the determined and nurturing Taurus. The Hare Moon should reflect in your ritual the slow but reliable Earth Sign energy that Taurus displays when returning fecundity and fertility to the earth. Like the studious and conscientious student who works slowly and steadily towards the completion of some goal, the Hare Moon's earthy energy should be recognized and used to move projects along their paths with steady progress. Springtime awakens during this period and we begin to see the first results of the other moons' efforts to return the world to life. It is a time when the Goddess shares her hopes, love and joy with us with great eagerness.
