May 21, 5:15 p.m. EDT — The Full Flower Moon. Flowers are abundant everywhere this time of year. This moon was also known as the Full Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon. Under the old rules originally set forth by the Maine Farmer’s Almanac, this is also a Blue Moon. Typically, there are three full moons for each season, but sometimes a season will have four full moons. This is the case for spring 2016; the full moon on June 20 occurs less than 12 hours before the official start of the summer season, making that moon the fourth full moon of the spring. Under the Almanac’s rules, the third full moon in a season that has four is referred to as the Blue Moon.
Making clear and honest choices and action towards your greatest dreams and visions is illuminated by this full moon. The blue flame of the Sagittarius invites us into deeper Presence within, so that we can explore important paths/options/choices to support our life path from our intuitive guidance and body wisdom, rather than solely from the logical mind. It is a potent time to focus on celebrating the paths you have chosen, and give thanks for all the blessings already alive in the form of action.
Just as flower blooms, in this Flowering Moon, you can take action by honoring yourself for all the ways in which you are already expanding and growing. Self-Love Rituals to nourish the body and mind are especially powerful. This is a time where a new version of the ‘bigger picture’ of your life may emerge and you may experience revelations to weave and connect the dots in the mythical sense for the path you walk.
Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period.
