As the ruler of the tides, it is fitting that in Astrology, the Moon is also the ruler of our emotions.

How we feel about things and how our emotions affect others are all influenced by the moon. Through the Moon's energy we endeavor to reconcile various emotions in order to make ourselves complete and one with the world.

In your Birth Chart, looking at your Moon information is as important as your Sun Sign information. The Sun gives us our Spirit & Energy, the Moon gives us our Soul & Emotions.

The Moon has four main cycles... New, Waxing, Full & Waning.
Each carries a very distinctive energy that we can utilize to energize our Stones and ourselves or choose specific Stones to work with that energy. The Moon has beautiful feminine energy to share with you, charging your Stones with its energy takes your work with the Stones to an entirely different level!

assist you working with the energy of the Moon & your Stones...

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.  Many believe that the energy of the New Moon is a time of transformation, new beginnings, an explosion of creative energy and personal growth

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. This is a time to focus on new projects and ideas.

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 period of the waxing moon lasts about 14 days.

The Full Moon

Lunar 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 (like the tides cleanse the beaches) and re-energizing it. It is a time of enhancing personal and crystalline energies. Many perform rituals of protection at this time.

Is a time for focusing on our gratitude’s and blessing’s. It is 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.

It is a beautiful reminder to rest, recoup, recharge. 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. For if the self is not healthy and whole, you truly cannot be of complete service to others. Stones such as Rhodochrosite, Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Ruby in Fuchsite, Pink Kunzite and/or Danburite work well with the Waning Moon.
