This month's correspondences include fiery colors like red, orange, and yellow, and gemstones such as the amber and ruby. Prickly trees like the hawthorn and rowan come into play, and lusty deities take center stage, with Priapus, Flora, and Kali being honored this month. For magical workings, try a fire divination under the full moon, or do rituals related to jobs and prosperity. Take the seeds you planted in April, and watch them bloom this month, under the Flower Moon!
While May itself is passionate and fiery, the season of Spring is often a wet one. Use the element of water to connect in this Spring Full Moon rite, and celebrate the way our bodies connect to the moon and its phases.
This month's full moon is a little extra potent, because it's considered a "super moon." That's the term applied when the full moon is a lot closer than normal, making it look larger and brighter. We had one back in March 2011, and everyone was worried about extreme weather, but this year's super moon won't be quite as large.
The Farmer's Almanac says, "A SuperMoon occurs when the Moon is at least 90% of the way to its perigee position at the same time it is full or new. An extreme SuperMoon is when a full or new Moon happens at the same time the Moon is close to 100% perigee. May's full Moon will occur within an hour of the Moon's perigee."
