There’s a lot going on in the heavens this May, particularly with this month’s full moon. The moon will be full on May 18, and this one is special for several reasons.
The May 18 full moon is traditionally known as the Flower Moon, and this time around it’s also a Blue Moon.
This Blue Flower Moon rises in Scorpio, which promises to bring a major shift in energy. What does all this mean for you? Let’s break it down.
Studying your astrological sign can give you quite a lot of insight into your personality. You won’t believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you as well!
That’s right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.
The Full Flower Moon: A Native American Tradition
First things first: A Full Flower Moon gets its name from the Native American tribes living on the East Coast of North America.
Native Americans — notably groups of the Algonquin people — named each full moon to mark what was going on in nature at that time of year.
The Flower Moon is typically the first full moon in May, and it honors the way the earth has once again fully awoken after a long, cold winter.
A Full Flower Moon marks the same spiritual shift experienced around Beltane, or May Day — the midway point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice.
This time of year is when the Earth is at its most fertile. Sure, all of those blooms add color and fragrance to the world, but remember that flowers are all about reproduction!
There’s a seduction as flowers open to the world and invite pollinators to enter — and as the months pass, ripe fruits are the result of the spring flowering.
What does the Full Flower Moon mean for you? Don’t be surprised if you’re feeling more attuned to nature around the 18th, as she’s doing her best to attract attention!
Your thoughts may also turn to your own fertility, so it’s a good time to take stock of these feelings and adjust your choices to match your deeper desires.
