Full Moon: Wednesday, May 10, 2017
May’s Full Flower Moon is also called Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, Hare Moon and Corn Planting Moon.
New Moon: Thursday, May 25, 2017
This will be the largest Super New Moon of the year.
May’s Moon marks a time of increasing fertility as the temperatures start to warm up, which is the perfect incubator to nurture young sprouting roots deep under the surface. This is also true for cultivating our ideas, and clearing the way for our visions to surface and become our new reality. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots, before their miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars.
The May Moon cycles provide the energy needed to complete the next steps in manifesting our desires. The earth is becoming fertile again. It's time for the planting. Just like a gardener starts planting seeds in the ground in May, so must we start planting our seeds/goals/intentions into our fertile ground. In the past few articles, I provided steps on how to let go of old hurts, ideas, or practices that no longer serve us. These processes clear the pathway for our hearts and minds to become clean and fertile for the seeds of our desires to be planted. May is a month to take action and start the ball rolling in co-creating your desires.
If you’ve been thinking of getting projects underway, now’s the time to take concrete action steps. Put the shovel into the ground, and plant the seeds. Start watering your seeds with positive energy and words of affirmations. Do what you can to get things started. Of course, it may take some time for results to arrive, but until you begin, you will always just be thinking and talking about your dreams versus living them.
Power Flow Energy
Most creation germinates in dark unseen places, like the womb, earth, the mind, and heart. The New Moon is no different. The New Moon is the beginning of the moon cycle, and it starts as dark and unseen. This month’s New Moon energy is very powerful, since it will be a Super New Moon.
What is a Supermoon?
The point when the Moon orbit is the closest to the Earth (the perigee). When this occurs, the gravitational pull of the Moon on the Earth’s oceans is affected. High and low tides are at the greatest; this is called Perigee Spring Tides. Just like the Earth’s surface, humans are also made up of over 70% water; respectfully, the gravitational pull of the Moon will also affect us!
This Super (New) Moon will affect our physical, emotional, & mental states. Energy may run high around May 25, 2017. You may feel more emotional, electric, have sleep disturbances or lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition heightened, or you may become more aware of or sensitive to the energy of the environment, people, animals, etc.
The May Super (New) Moon energy can be harnessed through rituals to manifest your intentions. Rituals are a beautiful way to connect symbolically to GOD/Source/Energy, and your Higher Self. This is also a time to set your clear intentions of what you want to bring into your life. Part of co-creating is in connecting with the energy of the natural ebb and flow of our universe, and utilizing this energy to bring forth our desires. Two of these are energies of endings (as in the Full Moon), and the beginnings and manifesting, of the New Moon. This is why a New Moon ritual is so powerful.
Consider holding a Super New Moon Family Abundance Ritual. May is about fertility, planting seeds. However, remember fertility is not just sexual. May’s lunar season is also about abundance, in a variety of forms. Don't just focus on material gains. Look around and witness the growth of the Earth and its bounty, as trees and flowers start to bloom. Let May's lunar energy guide you inward to abundance, as you increase your spiritual and emotional wealth.
