The Flower Moon is the first and only full moon that takes place during the month of May. You might have also heard it referred to as the Dragon Moon, Milk Moon, Corn Planting Moon, or Mother’s Moon.
Even though it has been given many names, this moon represented a time when fertility rates were higher, since the weather had grown warm enough for children to be safely born (and also, as the first name suggests, it represented a time when flowers were in bloom).
According to astrologers, this is a powerful time for relationships. If you have been single, you can expect to fall into unexpected luck soon. If you are already in a relationship, you can expect to have an upswing in your intimacy.
The flower moon is also a time for a fresh start, so if you have been putting off any important tasks out of fear of rejection or failure, now is the time to take a risk. Act courageous. Give yourself a clean slate and forget all of your mistakes of the past. Go after what you want. No more procrastinating. Now is the perfect time to take a chance.
Even if you don’t believe in the concept of stars and moons predicting the way your week is going to go, you should still take a glance at the sky, because it’s a pretty sight to see. If you happen to miss the Flower Moon this year, you won’t be able to spot it again until May 18, 2019.
However, you shouldn’t worry, because the next full moon will take place on June 28, which is referred to as the Full Strawberry Moon since it represented the perfect time to pick strawberries.
In total, there are 13 full moons taking place throughout 2018, so you can also look forward to seeing the Buck Moon on July 27, the Sturgeon Moon on August 26, the Harvest Moon on September 24, the Beaver Moon on November 23, and the Cold Moon on December 22.
It’s easy to forget about the beauty in this world, so on days like these, it’s important to pause for a second and look up at the sky.
