Full moons bring with them a certain energy and inspire a flow of emotions and vibrations, unlike in other phases of the moon. Full moons have a way of washing away the negative energy to make room for positive energy.
The full moon for the month of May is what you call the “Full Flower Moon”, also called the “Full Blessing Moon,” “The Corn Planting Moon,” and the “Bright Moon.”
The first name is mostly due to the fact that flowers blossom and bloom in May. The second has its roots in corn planting just in time for harvesting. The third is because this full moon is known to be one of the brightest of the full moons.
The Flower Moon and Magick
This full moon is pregnant with energy and is very important in Wicca since it symbolizes the feminine divine. Witches like to perform their magickal workings at this time since the energy of the full moon lends itself well to more powerful spells and more effective spell casting.
This is the high time for magickal workings related to divining and protection, and also casting spells for healing, abundance, and prosperity. If you’re thinking of switching careers and jobs, this is the time to ask for guidance. To those with rune stones and crystals, this is the time to use them to draw power from the moon.
The Symbolic Flower Moon
The Flower Moon also symbolizes us humans. Like the flowers, it is time for us to blossom, to grow day by day by soaking up the sun’s rays, and to gather our energy from it.
The full moon also symbolizes shining a light on our darkest days and illuminating the deepest and darkest corners of ourselves, allowing the light of awareness in the darkest places of ignorance, shame, guilt, and embarrassment. The Flower Moon is there to assist us in shedding our outer skin as a form of renewal.
This is the time for self-reflection and self-assessment. Look into yourself for the things that have been hidden will now make themselves known. You are given the chance to heal, and you now have the chance to look at yourself in a whole new light, the light that shines from the moon.
This is the chance for rebirth. So go out and experience being under the full and bright light of the Flower Moon! It accompanies with it a great potential for change. Embrace this change and welcome the magnificent shifts coming your way!
