May's Full Moon: Flower Moon

This month's full moon is called the Flower Moon, and it will be visible on May 16th, 2022. There are many different names for each month's full moon, and they often reflect the natural world around us. The name “Flower Moon” comes from the fact that this is the time of year when flowers are in bloom. So what can you expect to see during May’s Flower Moon?

As mentioned above, you can expect the flowers to be in bloom. This is a time of year when many different types of flowers are in full bloom all over much of the Northern Hemisphere. What else should you do during this month's full moon? It's  a great time to plant gardens! This is because the extra light from the moon helps the plants to grow. So if you've been wanting to start a garden, this is the perfect time to do it.  

The Full Flower Moon is a great time for all you lovers of the outdoors! You can typically see more wildlife during this time since the animals are out and about during this time, and are often more active during the full moon. If you're lucky and in the right place, you might even see a deer or two so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for all of the different animals that are out and about during this month's full moon.  Fishermen and women now is a good time for casting your line. Fish are more active during this time, and they are often biting more during the full moon. So if you love to fish, make sure to head out during this month's full moon.

And for all you Crystal and Gemstone enthusiasts.  Don’t forget the Full Moon is the perfect time to cleanse and recharge your collection! By cleanse we are speaking in terms of energy, not physically cleaning them. Many people believe that the Full Moon can clear a crystal or gemstone’s energy and also recharge the positive energies or natural properties that it holds. Simply place your crystals out overnight, preferably on a natural surface such as your lawn or ground.  If you don’t have a backyard or natural surface readily accessible you can place them on your windowsill or wooden plate outside where they can soak up the Moon’s energies.

As you can see, there are many things that you can experience during this month's full moon. Whether you're looking for flowers or wildlife, or looking to start a garden or re-energize your crystal collection, this is the perfect time to do it. So get outside and enjoy all that the Flower Moon has to offer!
