August's Crystal and Astrological Dates

Here is a quick overview of all the wonderful crystal related and astrological dates of the month including information about the Blue Full Supermoon- the second supermoon of the month, the date of the new moon, Celtic Zodiacs and August's birthstone as well as crystal recommendations for each event.

Full Moon & Celtic Zodiac

This month's full moon is on the 30th of August and is a Blue Supermoon. Its a busy time for full moons this month, with the full supermoon on the 30th actually being the second supermoon of the month. Super moons orbit closer to the earth than other full moons meaning they appear bigger and brighter in the sky with some believing this makes them more powerful, particularly when it comes to cleansing and charging your crystals or incorporating the full moon into your practice. A Blue Supermoon is a particularly rare event (hence the phrase, once in a blue moon) only occurring once every 5 to 10 years!

This month's Celtic Tree Zodiac are both Holly (July 7th to August 4th) and Hazel ( August 5th to September 1st). If you were born under the Holly sign you are said to be friendly and approachable, taking well to academia and often being intellectually gifted. if you are born under the Hazel sign you are said to be knowledgable, confident and loyal

Our three crystal recommendations for this time are Black Moonstone (for the Super Blue Full Moon- a crystal tied to the phases of the moon-it is particularly powerful at this time- a crystal of new beginnings and feminine energy, Fluorite (to aid the Holly zodiacs studious nature) and Tigers Eye (amplifying Hazel Zodiacs strength and confidence)

July's birthstone is the beautiful Peridot, a cleansing and protective stone that is thought to bring happiness and delight. Associated with the heart (our emotional centre) and the solar plexus chakra (our centre of will) it is thought to bring transformation, abundance and prosperity.

The two traditional Zodiacs of the month are Leo with Leo season running from July 23rd to August 22nd and Virgo with Virgo season running from August 23rd to September 22nd.

Leo's are said to be warm, outgoing, sincere and noble although can sometimes struggle to pick up other people's emotions and feelings. Our three crystal recommendations for Leo's are Aventurine, Tigers Eye and Peridot. You can find all three in our Leo Zodiac sets

Virgo's are said to be practical, systematic and grounded, however they can grow to have bad habits and fixate over things. Our three crystal recommendations for Virgos are Sodalite, Jade and Sapphire, you can find them all in our Virgo Zodiac sets

Lions Gate Portal

We are in the last few days of the Lion's Gate Portal, an Astrological event where Sirius aligns with the Earth. This is a time of transformation, abundance and prosperity. Make use of the few days left we have of this magical time and get manifesting. Thinking about and focusing on your goals and aspirations is a particularly potent practice during this time because of the transformative energies of this event. Here are some crystal recommendations you can use while manifesting to increase its power even more.

We hope you enjoyed reading this post and have lots of fun plans for the month ahead! Remember the full moon is an excellent time to cleanse and re charge your crystals, just leave them out overnight on the night of a full moon and let them bathe in the moonlight all night!

Love & Light
