May brings plenty of warm weather and good vibes all around. But this year, it’s also poised and ready to dial up the passion in your love life.
Thank the full flower moon in Scorpio for that added spark. Happening on May 16, 2022, this full moon coincides with a total lunar eclipse. The result? You’ll be all about the sensual ~vibes~ coming from this dual celestial event, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta. But, of course, there’s a lot more to it than that.
Here’s what else your zodiac sign can expect from the full flower moon and lunar eclipse in Scorpio, plus how it can impact your life going forward.
Wait, what is the Full Flower Moon in Scorpio exactly?
As you probably already know from looking at the night sky, the moon has different phases, with the biggest and brightest one being the full moon. Each full moon is lined up with a particular zodiac sign, giving the moon its own special feel.
But this full moon is a little extra special, since it's also a lunar eclipse, which is what happens when the earth stands directly between the moon and the sun.
This full moon’s name comes from a mix of Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. No shocker here—the Full Flower Moon happens when flowers start to bloom across the country, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac. So, yay!
How will the Full Flower Moon in Scorpio impact your zodiac sign?
Because the Full Flower Moon is also a lunar eclipse, it’ll be stronger and more powerful than your run-of-the-mill full moon. And, because it’s in Scorpio, it’s bringing all the passion your way.
If you’re in a relationship, expect your S.O. to whip out the full-blown flowers and candles scenario on the reg, along with doing their best to make sure you have an epic time in bed. Single? Keep your eyes peeled. Your next date is going to set the bar high. Either way, you’re going to want what you want when you want it in love—and there's zero wrong with that.
This full moon is also connected to Saturn, giving you a huge desire to figure out what’s important to you. Like, do you want to be the CEO of your own company in a few years, or are you going to be happier working for someone else without the added stress of being a business owner? What about where you're living: Do you want to finally make that cross-country move you've been mulling over, or is it ultimately not for you?
FWIW, Saturn also tends to bring up the reality of life. So, you may discover that you overbooked your Memorial Day or that the new apartment you’ve been eyeing isn’t quite as picture-perfect as you thought. It’s no biggie, just life!
The full moon will impact all zodiac signs, but Page says that Scorpio and Taurus will feel it the most.
How will the Full Flower Moon in Scorpio impact your future?
Infusing a smidge more passion into your love life is always welcome, right? Plus, it's not a one-and-done sitch—you can take all the feels from this full moon and use 'em going forward. Sure, it's impossible to be passionate and romantic 24/7, but making a point to do something sweet and/or sexy for your partner here and there will go a long way toward keeping you close.
Not to mention, sussing out what’s important to you now—at work, with friends, and in life overall—can help you take even more steps toward creating that perfect (or semi-perfect) life you’ve been lusting after.
At the same time, staying grounded in reality and learning to roll with the punches will make you a more flexible, easy-going person in the future. It's a balancing act, ya know? Keep that in mind as you navigate the lingering impact of this full moon and lunar eclipse.
When is the next full moon?
The next full moon is on June 14, 2022 in the sign of Sagittarius. During this full moon, expect to feel all kinds of optimism.
But, for now, enjoy all those spicy vibes.
