Crystals associated with the moon and celestial energy.
Each part of the moon cycle offers a unique energy to support your intentions in different ways. Because the energy changes throughout the cycle, adapting your crystal practice and your intentions for the specific phase of the moon cycle can enhance your ability to manifest your intentions. To help you harness the full power of the moon, we’ve created your go-to guide for how to use moon cycles and crystals together.
ABOUT YOUR LUNAR CRYSTALS
New Moon - Intention -
A new moon is symbolic of rebirth and it presents an opportunity to release past trauma and start anew. A new moon is a good time to focus on closure. Labradorite crystals release anxiety and stress and connect you to the stars, pairing with the new moon and bringing about a fresh start.
Waxing Crescent - Commitment
A waxing crescent moon represents positive changes in one’s emotional state. Self-reflection is important during this phase of the moon cycle, and the best crystal to use for this is Rose Quartz. Rose quartz encourages love and harmony and can help unscramble emotions.
First Quarter - Action
The first quarter phase of the moon is about action. This is the time to change situations in your life that are causing unhappiness or worry. These changes often require courage, which is why Carnelian crystals should be used during this time. Carnelian enhances courage and confidence, making it a useful crystal to power through difficult changes.
Waxing Gibbous -Refinement
Efforts are often rewarded during this phase of the moon cycle. During the waxing gibbous, you can expect to see the fruits of your labour. It is important to be patient and exact with your work during this time. This phase of the moon is paired well with a Tiger’s Eye crystal. Tiger’s Eye invites good luck and praise. Additionally, Tiger’s Eye is affective in blocking bad luck and negative energies.
Full Moon - Receiving
A full moon is the most exciting and energetic stage of the moon cycle. Motivation is at a peak during this time, making this the time to finish any projects that you’re working on. This is also a good time to analyse how your energy is being spent and to see if you can be more efficient. Moonstone is the perfect connection to the Goddess and the healing energies of the full moon and should be used during this moon phase.
Waning Gibbous - Sharing
This moon phase is all about cutting out toxic life patterns and protecting yourself. Smokey Quartz protects you as you share your gifts, which can be useful during this time.
Third Quarter – Awareness
Open your eyes to the world around you. Notice what is good and what holds value. Be grateful for the goodness and love. And prepare to let go of the negative and unnecessary. Aquamarine crystals balance emotions and are perfect for pairing with this moon and bringing about a new awareness.
Waning Crescent -
This is the time to banish any negative energies in your life. This is also a good time to rid your home of clutter, a process that can be expedited by using a Bloodstone. Bloodstone crystals encourage peace and block negativity.
