April 27 marked the rising of the Pink Moon in 2021, the fourth of the year. While the Moon will appear to be full for the next few days, it has passed its official peak. However, there will be many more opportunities to catch a stunning Full Moon this year.

What is the next Full Moon and when will it rise?

The next Full Moon will rise in May, and is known as the Flower Moon.

This year, the Flower Moon will rise on May 26.

To be more precise, the Moon will reach its absolute peak at 12.13pm.

May’s full Moon has several names, all of which connect it to the fact it signifies spring, which are “flower moon”, “corn planting moon” or “milk moon” although the first is the most common.

NASA said on its website: “Going by the seasons, as the second full Moon of spring, the Native American tribes of the northeastern United States called this the Flower Moon, as flowers are abundant this time of year in most of these areas.”

According to the Old Farmers’ Almanac, Native American tribes endowed each full Moon with a name which represents the season or time of the year.

In spiritual terms, the Flower Moon is perceived to be a particularly ripe time for magical energy.

So those interested in the spiritual practice of using crystals and stones may benefit from using them during the May Full Moon period.

May is also traditionally associated with fertility and given the Full Flower Moon’s apparent magical qualities.

Some believe it is particularly advantageous for those trying to conceive.
