Like every full moon, the Flower Moon was named originally by the Native Americans. This full moon happens every May, and gets its name from being the time of the year when spring has truly sprung. It’s a time of plenty, like Thanksgiving in spring, only much, much sexier.
This year, the Flower Moon was in the zodiac sign of Scorpio. What did this mean for your horoscope? Well, in astrology, a full moon in Scorpio usually means lots of crime. But when we’re talking about loves live, there’s good news: a Flower Moon in Scorpio promises you lots of intense and mysterious romance.
Even the Farmers’ Almanac agrees about the sexiness of the season, albeit in a very Farmers’ Almanac kind of way: “The May moon marked a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.”
This Flower Moon brought with it lots of romance, lots of intrigue, and bucket loads of drama, which makes a moon in Scorpio one that should have you striving to turn away from distractions. In fact, this was an ideal moment to take the time necessary to focus on achieving balance and peace.
To sum up, what we had was a moon passing over a water sign: drama, drama, and more drama for your love life! Here is how the Flower Moon impacts your love life, all according to your zodiac sign.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
I’m sorry to report it, dear Aries, but this moon is going to throw you off your game! It’s not your fault, it’s the stars. You’re going to be feeling indecisive, and what’s worse, you’re going to be focused on a lot of your own private internal struggles.
There is good news: chances are this will only last until the 15th of the month. Around then, look for an unexpected surplus in your income which will leave you feeling confident enough to make other important decisions about your life.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Here’s some very good but intense news for all you bullish folks: because the Flower Moon is in Scorpio, which is directly across from Taurus on the chart, this month is going to be the perfect time for you to decided if the struggles in your relationship are worth fighting for, or if it’s time for you to move on.
This is good news because whether you’re conscious of it or not, this has been a problem you’ve been facing for a while now, though you haven’t wanted to admit it. Now is the hour and the outcome looks promising.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
The Flower Moon finds Gemini at their most productive. Get down with your bad self, you little minx! That said, you’re going to have to be very careful that you don’t burn yourself out, and that definitely applies to your love life as well.
You might find yourself feeling grim about dating, which is very fair. Make sure that you take the time to focus on yourself. The moon indicates that taking this breath could mean exciting romance when you least expect it.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
As we mentioned, this is a very dramatic and emotional moon, which is PERFECT for all the crabs out there. You take to drama well, like a crab takes to water. Chances are you’re feeling inventive and super creative right now and you shouldn’t ignore that impulse.
You are bound to find love or a deeper connection turning toward your creative side. This will help you access a deeper level of connection with someone in your life, so don’t miss this opportunity.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This is going to be a tough month for the passionate Leo. I’m sorry to say it, but you will probably find yourself in at least one situation where you are contemplating getting back at a former lover, or where you’re inwardly battling serious jealousy.
Do not let the torrent of your powerful emotions destroy your relationship. Be open and honest with the person in your life who is causing these intense feelings and you may be pleasantly surprised.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
For months you’ve been carrying around a major secret, and the Flower Moon is the perfect time of the year to get that noise off your chest and into the world. I know that you worry and fear that your feelings will be rejected or that you will be mocked, but there is a worse alternative: never being loved.
Right now you happen to have a great insight to what people are really thinking and feeling. Trust your guts and then spill them. It will only wind up helping you out in the long-term.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
The Flower Moon does some signs a lot of favors, but it’s left lovely Libra doing the one thing this sign should never do: doubting their intuition. You aren’t listening to your instincts right now and that could cause you tremendous difficulty down the line.
So don’t do it! Do your best to shrug off your doubts and be the righteously awesome person we all know you to be. This quality is attractive as hell and you never know who could be coming around the corner…
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
You’re going to be feeling this Flower Moon twice as much as other signs, because it’s in your house. This is a moon that can underscore misunderstandings, so how you fair is definitely up to you.
You may find yourself insulting a partner if you aren’t careful. This could lead to a fight that neither of you wants. So do your best to weather the storm. Focus on being clear and calm.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This is the perfect time for you to let go of the baggage you’re carrying from a previous relationship. Yes it was hard, of course it hasn’t been easy to forget. But love could find you, provided you drop that weight you’re carrying.
Letting go of the baggage could mean making a deep and meaningful connection. Did I mention that intimacy could potentially be off the chain? Because it totally could, so do it!
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Now is the time for Capricorns to make decisions about their love lives. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, this moon proves to be very important to your future happiness, so approach all the choices you make with caution and serious thoughts.
For Capricorns, love can sometimes come as a surprise. It is going to present itself to you, you just have to be ready to make the right choice.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Oh my goodness my friend, you’re feeling like you need a little positive affirmation right now, huh? You’re basically at the point where if a stranger on the street stopped you and told you how to live your life, you’d cry with relief to have someone tell what exactly you need to do.
Here’s some relief for you: the choices you’re making are the right ones, and you will be rewarded for them in the form in a new potential sexy-time partner before too long.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Prepare to clash with everyone you know — in particular, if you are in a relationship, prepare to clash with the person who is normally the apple of your eye. This fight doesn’t have to mean an end of things, so keep that in mind.
Make sure when you fight with your partner that you’re fighting FOR the relationship and not AGAINST your partner. This will ensure relationship success and will keep the two of you on the same page.
