According to the farmers almanac May’s full moon is in May 18th and known as the Full Flower Moon.
This is because in the norther hemisphere, May is notable for being the turning point in the year where temperatures rise and a vast variety of flowers come into full bloom, letting the world break out into a riot of color.
Some Native American tribes named May’s full moon as “The Corn Planting Moon”, considering this as the perfect time for them to start preparing the fields for farming and sowing the seeds saved up from last year; apart from corn, other foods such as beans, squash, and potatoes are planted during this time.
Bloom is everywhere.
Energetic wise, there is a heavy energy around this Full Moon that will be drawing us in and asking us to be honest listening to the depths of our heart and soul.
We are going to have to be gentle and patient with ourselves, and allow the magic of the Moon to do its work.
Every full moon it has the purpose to do some cleaning and make space to welcome all the new, positive things/ toughts/ intentions/ projects we would like to receive and focus on the new moon.
Take a moment and ask yourself ;
- What is stoping you from reaching joy and happiness?
- What is not letting you grow?
