Lunar Beltane blessings and Happy Flower Moon!
The Full Moon in Scorpio ignites the beautiful energy of the pagan holiday Beltane, typically celebrated on May 1st... also known as May Day! The season is in full bloom and it is a time to ignite your passions, your love for life, and celebrate! The merging and union of the Sacred Masculine and Feminine can be seen within and without and can bring in healing, new love, and creative energy is high!
The Full Moon in Scorpio also happens to land on April 29th or April 30th depending on time zone!
For this Full Moon ceremony we are showing you two ways to celebrate the beauty in your life! You can create a Flower Moondala out in nature or a Flower Moondala in the comfort of your home!
Flower Moondala Ceremony
Gather flowers from your garden, or buy a beautiful bouquet or two, to bring with you out to nature. It could be your favorite piece of land, a park you have been wanting to explore, or a hike you have been looking forward to. Feel free to bring a picnic and your friends or lover!
When you find the place to create your Moondala, ground yourself into the land. Take off your shoes and feel the energy of the Earth move up through your feet and ignite each chakra.
From this grounded place begin to create your Moondala. Focus on the center and work your way outward. Allow your intuition and creativity to flow and take your time with this process. Work with the flowers you brought and the nature around you.
If you are close to the ocean, feel free to create a mandala with the shells and seaweed washed upon the shore. Or if you are experiencing the Autumn season gather the fallen leaves, branches, and other bits of nature that is shedding on to the ground. Commune with the land you live on and honor her with her unique beauty!

After you create your beautiful Flower Moondala you can make an optional offering for the Elements. What you will need is:
- Air: Sage or incense or just your breath
- Fire: Your favorite perfume/anointing oil
- Water: Moon water or wine in your chalice
- Earth: A little bowl of sea salt or pink himilayan salt
While honoring each element, offer prayers to the land and intentions for the rest of your season.
Honor the Air element but saying yourself and your group and the Moondala in a clockwise motion. You can also gently blow your breath or prana/life force energy over the Moondala.
Honor Fire with the anointing oil and anoint each chakra on your body. Add a few drops to the center of the Moondala.
Honor Water by drinking wine or moonwater from your chalice. Pour some libations on to the land and around the outside of the Moondala.
Honor Earth by taking the bowl of salt and taking a few morsels on your tongue taking the Earth into your body. Sprinkle the rest of the salt around the Moondala creating a ring.
Now enjoy the rest of your time here! Have a picnic, dance and sing, make love, play music... Celebrate your life!
If you cannot go out into nature, bring nature to you. You could create a Flower Moondala on your altar or outside on your patio or backyard. Follow the steps above!
Also download the free colorable Flower Moondala found in our Tune to the Moon Planner and take your time to color it in and infuse it with your love, intentions, and desires.
