The Full Moon in May is called the Flower Moon by the Algonquin and the Dakota peoples, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. Flower because of the abundance of wildflowers in the month of May.
This Full Moon is also a Supermoon, slightly closer to Earth than last month’s Super Pink Full Moon. Also in some areas of Northern America, it will be a total lunar eclipse. Lunar eclipses make the energy of the Full Moon even more potent.
With the Sun in Gemini, this Moon is in Sagittarius, the Archer. There is a desire for truth, for freedom and spaciousness that can be almost overwhelming emotionally. In Ritual, we will enter into the sacred realm and be held by the magical Flower Goddess, Blodeuwedd for inspiration, healing and insight.
