Tonight is the Full Flower Moon, beginning at 11:42 PM Eastern Daylight Time, so named because of all the flowers blooming during this time of year. May’s Full Moon is also known as the Bright Moon because it is very bright and the Corn Planting Moon because this is the time when farmers would plant corn for it to be ready for the harvest.
Like nature at this time, we are blossoming, we are growing day by day with the strength of the Sun. Like solar panels, we are soaking up the Suns energy. The Full Moon is in Scorpio and it shines its light in the darkest places, encouraging us to peer in and see what’s there. Things that were once hidden will show themselves to us, we will be able to see ourselves and others in a whole new light, and look at our lives more clearly. Our psychic abilities and intuition will be at an all time high, so use this time to look to the future and see what it is we truly want and where we want to see ourselves.
Like a snake shedding its skin as a form of renewal, the Full Moon in Scorpio calls to each of us to shed the layers that are ready, thus bringing forth a rebirth, allowing a new skin to emerge. Welcome change, allow the light of awareness to penetrate the dark areas of ignorance, shame, and deep-seated resentment that lies hidden underneath issues. Give yourself permission to heal and move forward in your life, using the potential of the Full Moon to symbolically die in order to be reborn.
With this Full Moon, emotions will be raw, we may find we are feeling a flow of different emotions and a feeling of being pulled in many different directions. Let the waters of Scorpio wash away your emotional pain and cleanse you of negative feelings.
The next two weeks will bring lessons in self-transformation toward a more effective destiny, such as moving on to bigger and better things. Continue to maintain balance as you clean up the residue of what has already fractured in your life. We are now in a new era, and are on the threshold of things beginning to develop a lot more quickly than they have in recent months. While things may still feel somewhat slow, they are about to quicken in a big way.
These are magnificent times! Change and shifts are to be welcomed. Let the energy of this Full Moon help you see where you are emotionally stuck and resistant, and allow yourself to surrender to the gifting that is coming your way.
Have a Blessed Full Moon & may the Goddess watch over you.

what a great post I enjoyed it. I was wondering though with the southern hemisphere and the fact that the seasonal variations are the opposite, how should I then interpret the full moon in Scorpio? Always a tricky conundrum 🙂
The full moon is the full moon, period. I tend to list it for my time zone, but universally is went full around 4:00 a.m.
You would interpret the Sabbats in opposition, but it honestly confuses the hell out of me to twist the wheel around and try to figure out what gets celebrated and when without a clear-cut calendar marking. If you have a 2015 Witches’ Calendar, that should have the correct dates for each Sabbat and the dates of the full moon, new moon, etc. They are probably the same days each year (the Sabbats), which helps you to know what to celebrate and when. When in severe doubt, consult The Witches’ Voice web-site. 🙂
