May – Flower Moon
On May 10th we have the full moon in Scorpio.
The flower moon in Scorpio invites us to embrace love, intelligence and creativity, it leads us to try and experience new things, as well as heal and release old emotions. Don’t not forget that Scorpio has a sting in its tail, so take each new step slowly and calmly.
It is the fifth full moon of the year, the name of the month comes from Maia, the roman goddess of fertility, chastity, wealth and health. May is the month of flowers and berries, the time to fill our home with flowers.
The moon of May is powerful for performing all kinds of magic to develop and strengthen your spiritual side as well as a time of transformation and understanding your personal power by knowing that you are not alone, and that you have a team of spirit guides and angels that are on your side to help you move through life.
Many astrologers and ancient cultures have always believed that the Scorpio full moon is one of the most powerful for reaching out to ancient ancestors and guardian spirits. It is also believed to be one of the best full moon’s for rituals and manifestation work and psychic readings.
With so much magic energy circling in the first part of May, it is going to be impossible not to feel the effects of this full moon.
When the moon is in the water signs like Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces it is a good time for magic involving the element water, for increasing our intuition and to bring about changes.
When the moon is in Scorpio, it is also good for revealing secrets using magic, spells and rituals, related to passion, love and intense emotions, It is the best night to make love potions and spells, so during this moon why not take full advantage of her power 🙂
You can use it to combat apathy or depression if you have been feeling a little off balance lately.
It is the moon of knowledge, the best moon to conjure spirits that reveal the past and the future of things. The full moon nourishes us with energy in every aspect of our life, but not everything is love or light remember that the moon also has its dark side that assumes an important role in balancing our emotions and different facets, the moon in Scorpio produces uncomfortable situations where jealousy, resentment, revenge, violence, desires and passions are intermingled.

Burn some cinnamon sticks or incense, fill a small cauldron with a blend of essential oils that have floral scents, your choice, flower petals of different colours, sugar, cinnamon and a piece of peridot or agate, while mixing recite the following.
“We wake Nature up and in this ritual we invoke its spirits, make me tolerant, make me patient, make me wise and accompany me in every choice and every step with calm and wisdom.”
Remove the crystal from the mixture and bury it as an offering to the spirits. You can use the mixture try adding it to your bath.
During May full moon we can make this simple but effective love spell place in your Altar some flowers and roses, symbolizing the nature and the power of spring. In a circle made with rose petals place a rose quartz, burn a jasmine incense stick and light a strawberry or other scented candle, write in a paper or parchment your full name and that of your loved one, write your love one’s initials on a rose petal and your initials on another rose petal.
Place both petals and the parchment inside of an envelope with the crystal, close it and anoint it with a few drops of essential oil roses or jasmine oil at each end, leave it on the altar until midnight, then light a new red candle and burn it. The only thing left will be the rose quartz and ashes, which you will bury in a garden the following morning.
