I love the moon, the rituals, the monthly markers through the year. I have shared many times about my mothers love for the moon & her reliance on the almanac, she was incredibly green fingered & the May moon meant that she could get fully engaged with her beloved gardens. This month’s amazing full moon is the flower moon, and while it is always an attractive spring event to look forward to, this year’s moon is especially powerful.
That’s because this full moon is also a supermoon, meaning this would be extra-close to the Earth and therefore extra-powerful. Its official name is actually super flower blood moon lunar eclipse.
Full moons are always an opportunity to let go of burdens you have been carrying; to release those weights & move forward more freely. Lunar eclipses are actually a great time to focus on your relationship with yourself.
Why is the May Moon Called the Flower Moon?
The full Moon names are variously derived from Native American, Colonial American, and European regions. Traditionally, every full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it actually occurred, not solely to the Moon.
May’s full flower Moon is the first supermoon of 2022. A supermoon is most properly defined as any full Moon that occurs when the full Moon is at least 90% of perigee (the point in the full Moon’s orbit where it’s closest to Earth). In 2022, there will be 4 supermoons that you can see.
When Will the Super Flower Full Moon Appear in 2022?
You will find the full flower moon at its peak on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 12:14 am ET. 05:14 BST. The total lunar eclipse will reach its peak just a few minutes before, at about 12:11 am ET, 02.32 BST on May 16.

Alternative May Moon Names
May’s Moon names tend to speak of the arrival of spring season and all that it entails!

Also, Planting Moon (Dakota, Lakota) marks the time when seeds should be started for the upcoming farming season.
The activities of animals marked spring season arrival, too, which is highlighted by the Cree names ‘Egg Laying Moon’ & ‘Frog Moon’, as well as the Oglala term ‘Moon of the Shedding Ponies’. All three names show that warmer weather is on the way!

What challenges can arise with the moon? It can mean anything from planning to reach out to someone you would love to make amends with to setting aside more time every day to cuddle with your pet, if that helps your mental and physical health. Don’t feel pressure to do anything else other than honour yourself & think about what will make you feel your best; this is a time to take charge, process & open the door for healing.
Scorpios are considered for their sexuality, and once again, all the old rumours are true. However, that does not mean they want no-strings-attached sex, & especially right now, people are seeking emotional intimacy along with the physical.
For a full moon in Scorpio ritual, light a candle and simply write down all your old fears you want to release. When you are finished, rip it up into little pieces & throw it away. Then, make a list of each and everything that you love about yourself. The Super Flower Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse is a time of great power but you have to be prepared to change to manifest your desires.
