The Flower Moon

flower-moon-edit

Happy full moon Witches! May’s full moon is known as the Flower Moon. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac this is because May “marked a time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.” Exciting times, huh? Of course, the Flower Moon is about more than just a pretty name. It’s a time of blossoming, both inward and outward. Unless you walk around with your eyes closed (very ill advised) you’ve probably noticed nature is putting on a whole beautiful display for us at the moment. The flowers are in bloom, the trees are verdant and everything just looks that little bit more vibrant with the sunlight shining on it. Since we too are a part of nature you should notice a little inner blossoming going on too. We are in tune with nature and our minds, bodies and souls should reflect at least a little of what is going on outside. Whether it’s just the warmth and the longer days, that extra boost of vitamin D, or the joy of seeing so many beautiful flowers around, many of us feel generally happier, healthier and more energised around this time of year. We are fast approaching the mid-point of the year (I know, it’s scaring me too!) which means the literal and figurative seeds we have planted earlier in the year are beginning to bear fruits. Now is a great time to reassess your progress so far, celebrate how far you’ve come and sharpen your focus on what happens next. For some of us, we might realise we have wandered off the path a bit, or that a goal or project hasn’t turned out the way we imagined it would. That’s OK too! There’s still plenty of time to get back where we want to be or even start fresh if we have to. Use the blooming energy of the Flower Moon to manifest your dreams, however great or small. ‘Tis the season for hope and excitement. We have the whole summer ahead of us for fun, holidays and adventures. And speaking of adventures, this years Flower Moon is in Sagittarius so there’s even more excuse to take a leap, try something new and reach for your goals. Sagittarius is all about adventure, travel and the great outdoors so combined with the vibrant creative energy of the flower moon it should be a fun and exciting time for projects and playtime alike. For me personally I will be channelling this full moon energy into getting back to writing “The Cauldron Born” and hopefully bringing that to completion. I only have one small section to finish before I have a completed first draft so that’s super exciting. Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Flower Moon!
