|| Symbolism || Full Flower Super Moon in Scorpio || Known as the Full Flower Moon, it traditionally marks a time when flowers are usually blooming, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

As daylight dims into night, this amazing flower begins to open, and unfurl into a large, beautiful, fragrant blossom || We don't get them in the UK but those lucky enough may spot one , one night ||
