Posted by Tree of Life on May 4th 2023
This Full Moon, also known as the Flower Moon or the Full Corn Planting Moon, is the name given to the Full Moon that occurs in the month of May. It is called the Flower Moon because it typically coincides with the blossoming of flowers and the arrival of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This Full Moon marks a time of growth, renewal, and abundance in nature, as plants and flowers begin to flourish. The name "Full Corn Planting Moon" also signifies the traditional planting season for corn crops in many agricultural communities.
This Full Moon holds a profound and special significance as it coincides with a Lunar Eclipse, creating a captivating astronomical phenomenon. During this event, the Earth aligns between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow and resulting in a striking "Blood Moon." This rare occurrence prompts contemplation of the vastness and interconnectedness of the universe, evoking a sense of wonder and awe.
The Full Moon is sacred to the Trifold Goddess in her aspect as the Mother. She is regarded as the embodiment of nurturing, healing, and life-giving energies. She is the Revealer of Truth, dispelling the darkness with the radiance of her light. During the Full Moon, the Mother Goddess aids in the manifestation of our desires and helps us concentrate our intent. This phase is ideal for performing various types of magic, such as Cleansing Magic, Prosperity Magic, Healing Magic, and Love Magic.
The Full Moon is also in Scorpio bringing forth intense transformative energy and emotional depth. Ruled by Pluto, Scorpio symbolizes power, regeneration, and the mysteries of the unseen. This lunar event serves as a catalyst for exploring the depths of our emotions, confronting our fears, and releasing what no longer serves us. It is a powerful time for emotional healing, personal empowerment, and embracing our true selves. The Full Moon in Scorpio beckons us to delve into the shadows, trust our intuition, and embark on a journey of profound self-transformation.
