FULL FLOWER MOON May 31
May’s Full Flower Moon, is a time of increased fertility with increased temperatures. Full Flower Moon makes it warm enough for safely bearing young, planting as frost as past, and many flowers are in bloom. It is said that in the full moon of this month, brushes are filled with color to paint the flowers. That the flowers grow at night and dance in the moonlight.
Other cultures and religions have different names for the Full Flower Moon. In Algonquian it is the strawberry moon. Other names include the hare moon, the corn planting moon, and the milk moon.
Coincidentally enough, it is a great time for a proposal when on the 31st of May.
Full Moon Folklore
- Clothes washed for the first time in the full Moon will not last long.
- The full Moon is an ideal time to accept a proposal of marriage.
On a Full Moon , you may “draw down the moon”. This is consider a Pagan and or ancient belief by some, but can be done no matter your belief.
A simple way to enjoy this without the ritual, is to step outside under the full moon, preferably naked. Raise your arms and breathe in the moonlight, let it enter your body and feel it flow through you.
Proceed to “bathe” yourself in the glow even rubbing in on your skin.
Allow yourself to absorb the feminine energy of the moonlight.
This can be a very powerful, uplifting experience and bring a feeling of inner beauty, spirituality and calmness.
