Pink moon gonna get you … some rest

Just a quick reminder that if you are keeping to your six-day-a-week Ashtanga practice (and you are, of course), today’s a day off for a Moon Day.

In fact, it’s the Full Pink Moon day, according to the Farmers’ Almanac:

• Full Pink Moon – April This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

Even better, for those of you in the Eastern Hemisphere, you might get a real little bit of a pink moon. There is a teeny, tiny lunar eclipse that’s going to happen (like 1.5% coverage), and it could — if all goes right — give the moon a pinkish hue.

But it may not. You know how inconstant that moon is!

This is anything but inconstant, though:
