While a pink moon is definitely beautiful and full of magic, there's one thing you should know right off the bat that it is not it — and that's pink!

As recorded in The Old Farmer's Almanac, early Colonial Americans adopted the names we still use to describe various moons from those created by Native American tribes, who "kept track of time by observing the seasons and lunar months."

Each of these names "usually described some activity that occurred during that time in their location ... April’s Full Moon, the Full Pink Moon, heralds the appearance of the 'moss pink,' or wild ground phlox — one of the first spring flowers."

It is also referred to by some as the full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and/or the Fish Moon.

Those of you who turn to the star signs and your horoscope for guidance should be aware that the pink moon can have a deep impact on your love life.

Pink moons are said to celebrate new life, rebirth and second chances. In short, if you're looking for the best time of year during which to transform your life, it doesn't get much better than the period surrounding a pink full moon's arrival.

This year's pink moon occurs under the sign of Scorpio. You might remember that the new moon on April 15 occurred under the sign of Aries, which is a huge deal astrologically, as both Scorpio and Aries are ruled by Mars — the most passionate, fiery, and forward-pushing of all the planets!

Combine this information with the knowledge that the pink moon will sextile Saturn (meaning the two will be about 60 degrees apart on the Zodiac circle), and what you've got on deck are a bunch of big, beautiful changes that are likely to go smoothly and stick around.

That's right! This pink moon could mean serious — and possibly even permanent — changes for you, emotionally and otherwise!

Take a peek below to find out what the pink full moon means for your love life and relationships, according to your zodiac sign!

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You've never been one to hold yourself back, Aries, but lately you've been working overtime at it, and you absolutely must stop doing that right now!

This pink moon is your chance to take a tremendous risk on love. Even if it doesn't work out, your bold spirit will be back in action, and that's just as good (well, almost).

It's time to put your heart on the line, Aries. You won't be sorry that you did.

Don't doubt something could be real just because it looks a little bit different than what you expected.
