The Last Supermoon of 2020 – May 7th’s Flower Moon Will Appear Full For Three Whole Days!

May 7th’s Flower Moon Will Appear Full For 3 Whole Days!

The full moon is a time of culmination, heightened energy, and manifestations coming to life. And supermoon’s, according to Moonology, heighten those effects even more.

This year has proven to be great as far as astronomical events are concerned. We have already had three supermoons this year, but May brings an end to that series by bringing the last supermoon of the year 2020. 

The next full moon will be on Thursday morning, May 7, 2020. It will reach its peak at 6:45 a.m. EDT which is 4:15 pm in IST. However if you are worried that you will not be able to see super moon then do not be. According to NASA, the moon this month will appear full for about three days! From Tuesday evening till Friday morning. The next supermoon will not occur till April 2021! So mark the date to look up to the last one of the year 2020. 

It’s the third supermoon of the year.

First off, what actually makes a supermoon? The term “supermoon” just means a new or full moon fell at the point when the Moon was closest to Earth during its orbit. That closer proximity is what makes the moon appear somewhat brighter and larger.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, a supermoon looks about 7% bigger than a regular full moon, but this may not be discernible to the naked eye. Nevertheless, when the moon is closer to Earth, it has a stronger effect on the oceans’ tides, which means is also has a stronger effect on us.

And Aprils full moon happens to be one of three consecutive supermoons this year (with 2 prior in March and April.)

Where does the name come from?

Each month’s full moon has its own distinct name.The Full Moon of May is known as Flower Moon to signify the flowers that bloom during this month. There is a myriad of wildflowers which bloom in May in the Northern Hemisphere, where these traditional Full Moon names originated.

How to harness the full supermoon’s energy.

To make the most of this elevated energy, there are a few full moon rituals  for tapping into the power of the lunar cycle. But first, it’s important to understand the specific qualities of full moons: They’re all about endings and the completion of a cycle, so keeping that in mind, you don’t want to worry too much about tackling a new project or making a huge decision.

Rather, take this time to reflect and close out your most recent chapter. The next time a full moon comes around, it will be spring. So for a good place to start, you could meditate on, or journal about, all that’s happened this winter.

I recommend getting some friends together for a full moon circle, to further amplify the power of the moon—and your intention. This would also be a great time to cleanse and charge up your favorite crystals, for 3 full days! A super charge!

As we say goodbye to colder days, maybe you want to get rid of winter’s stagnant energy in your own body, or perhaps get a start on your spring cleaning. But no matter how you decide to work with it, the Full Flower Supermoon is sure to be a powerful one.
