This is how May’s Flower Moon will affect your zodiac sign

We close off this wonderfully wacky month of May with a full moon. And not just any full moon — the Flower Moon. Though this moon might not look like an actual flower (*sad face*), the energy surrounding it is definitely of a floral nature. We’re entering a time of blossoming and fertility, and thankfully, we have the stars to guide us on how the Flower Moon will affect your zodiac sign.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Flower Moon received its name because it "marked a time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom."

Sounds exciting and fruitful, doesn’t it? That’s because it is, and it’s also exactly the sort of vibe that the Flower Moon emanates. This month, the Flower Moon wraps up in the wanderlust sign of Sagittarius, which means we’ll experience urges to travel and explore (whether literally or internally). This is a time to discover and unearth ourselves and plant some seeds for the new.

Here’s how the Flower Moon will affect your zodiac sign.


You’re feeling in your element, Aries. You have the resources and support to help bring your vision together. Like Sags, you also have an inner explorer, which means you have the courage to launch your dreams wherever they fit best. Go for what you want — you just might get it.


You’ll be asked to stretch outside your comfort zone, Taurus. Rather than sit at home with Netflix as you forgo showing off your creative work, this is your time to get out and mingle. Promote your passion project! Believe in yourself and have some fun.


You’re in for a learning adventure, Gemini. You’re getting to the truth of who you are, so you might be drawn to digging deep into your family roots, exploring a hobby that you’ve always wanted to try, or taking a literal journey on a trip that means a lot to you. Spread those wings.


Patience is a virtue, Cancer. Waiting for something to happen — especially something you’ve been dreaming about — can be frustrating. But if you remember there’s a reason for every season and that everything is working out for you (because it is!), you’ll be able to weather the slow germination process. It’s going to happen.


You’re in a great mood, Leo. You’re feeling super confident about life and nothing can really get you down right now. You shine brightest when you lead by example, so spread the wealth of your joyful nature (enthusiasm is contagious) and support a friend who’s feeling down.


You might be feeling like you’re spreading yourself way too thin, Virgo. And chances are, you’re right. Although you like to have your hands in many different tasks and projects, you’re more effective (and at peace) when you place your laser-attention on *the* project that makes your heart sing.


You’re about to embark on a deep and life-changing love affair, Libra. It could very well be with a romantic partner, or it could be with a cherished friend or family member. It could even be with yourself. Whatever it is, this journey is going to shape you for the better. Enjoy every moment.


You love your independence and freedom, Scorpio, but you’re being asked to fully commit to something. Maybe it’s a new job or a new relationship, or maybe even a new pattern of being. Try to see commitment not as scary, but as a time of expansion and an opportunity to fully grow into yourself. You can do this.


This is your time, Sagittarius. You’re feeling like yourself and that you’re blooming into the person you are meant to be. Take pride in your achievements and feel confident about your upcoming projects. You are exactly where you are meant to be. Really.


You might feel a little uncomfortable right now, Cappy, which means you’re headed into a time of major growth. The full moon is trying to shake up your practical and serious way of doing things, and is asking you to embrace your lighter side (it does exist). Go with this flow. You might discover that the lighter, the better.


You’re in need of validation when it comes to where you’re going right now, Aquarius, and you’re about to get it. But remember: you don’t need anyone’s approval to lead the life you desire. Trust your process and your journey. You’re right on schedule — especially when it comes to that new lover around the corner.


You’re experiencing a major surge of creative inspiration, Pisces. Follow your instincts and trust your intuition. Pay little mind to external influences and remind yourself that you’re meant to share your gifts with the world. You’ll also find that the more you relax and let go, the more the artistry will flooooow.

This is an exciting full moon filled with endless possibilities, bbs. Take advantage of its creative and inspirational energy, and don’t forget that you are blossoming into the beautiful soul you’re destined to be.
