Just as the Sun gives us our Spirit & Energy, the Moon gives us our Soul & Emotions. Through the moons energy we journey to attune our emotions to make one with ourselves and the universe.
The Moon has a beautiful feminine energy she shares with us. Her vital Prana nourishes our soul and strengthens our connection to our higher self. Her Divine energy has consciousness of its own and flushes out negative thoughts, emotions and energies from our aura and the chakras. This effect gives us greater peace of mind and happiness.
When we attune ourselves to the moons energy we are consciously harnessing the power of the moon to create harmony in our lives. To do this, we must understand the four main cycles of the moon… New, Waxing, Full & Waning. Each carries a very distinctive energy that we can utilize to energize our stones and ourselves.
The New Moon
The New Moon is observed when the moon is directly in line with the Sun and Earth, but out of our view from Earth, because the Moon’s dark side is facing the Earth, making it appear dark. The energy of the New Moon is a time of transformation, new beginnings, an explosion of creative energy and personal growth.
Energetically, the new moon is a period when we are at our lowest level. It is a good time to fast, detox and purify our bodies.
The new moon is seen as a wonderful time to perform rituals of blessing and healing. A time to focus on our desires and dreams of what we want to manifest now. Look within to discover what we really want. A chance to discern our deepest truest, desires and manifest them naturally.
The Waxing Moon
When the moon appears to be gaining light and growing in energy and size, this is a Waxing Moon. Moving from a New Moon towards a Full Moon. The energy of the waxing moon is that of manifestation and intention. As the waxing moon brings your energy up your your higher chakras. This week is the week to get your sea legs stable as you work out and test out your New Moon Intentions.
The Waxing Moon would be a great time to wear your chosen crystal for abundance and prosperity. Stones such as Aventurine, Malachite, Citrine and Ruby are excellent Abundance Stones that would support the energy of the Waxing Moon.
The Full Moon
The Moons energy is at its most powerful during the time of the full moon. The reason we clean our Stones by the full moon is because this extremely powerful lunar energy helps to remove all dense, stored up energies, washing the crystal clean. It is a time of enhancing personal and crystalline energies. Many perform rituals of protection at this time.
You are naturally accelerated on a full moon. You are at your highest energy level. The secretions in your body will be at their maximum, so you don’t want your energy being used to consume food. Save your energy to reconstruct yourself. Try to drink only liquids on this day. It is a time for focusing on our gratitude’s and blessings. A time to be mindful of all that we have, and all that we have created. A time to express and receive, to open our hearts and feel the connection we have all around us and fill our cups.
The Waning Moon
Directly after the light of the full moon has passed that the light begins to grow less visible each night, is a Waning Moon. The energy of the Waning Moon can be used to remove those energies and issues that no longer serve you such as letting go of a relationship that may be toxic. It is also leading up to the new moon which can be a time of rest and energy restoration.
As our energy dissipates, we can become out of balance by attempting to compensate with energetic masculine energy. For this reason, it is a good time to practice balancing meditations and mudras.
The Waning Moon is a beautiful reminder to rest and recoup. Stones that carry an energy of unconditional love are perfect during this time as they are a reminder that taking care of the self is as important as anything else that you do. Stones such as Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Ruby in Fuchsite, Pink Kunzite and/or Danburite work well with the Waning Moon.
