Full Flower moon. A blue moon in Scorpio, just like the Pink Moon in Scorpio just weeks ago! Lots more flowering.
The Native Americans called this one, “Corn planting moon”. For mother’s day the boys weeded the flower beds and planted some new lavender & rosemary (after yanking out the ones that didn’t overwinter well), a new rose bush, some classic & purple basil varieties, and plenty of sweet Alyssum flowers. We intended to plant the “three sisters” (corn, beans, squash) in the raised and fenced garden bed, but it began to rain, and it was late in the day anyway, so now we get to plant during the Corn Planting moon!
Taurus is an earth sign, ruling physicality…The body, material things, matter in general. (Also the sensuality/sexuality of these things. More on that on the “other” Full Moon Scorpio/ Sun in Taurus blog from last month here. Blue moon, remember? Same sun/moon configuration.)
So in taking our focus to the materialism of Taurus we can tune into the other lessons it has to teach us about finances, money and the material world. If you’re desiring to experience a healing with prosperity, your relationship to your things, and what you value.. now is a powerful time to connect to the essence of that too. More info in the Lila with Lakshmi program. (Lila means divine play and Lakshmi is the Goddess of Abundance!)
