Everything in the universe is connected and cyclical. From the orbits of the planets to the double helix of our DNA, we see life’s spiraling patterns everywhere. The moon’s gravitational pull impacts both the tides and our bodies since we are mostly water. Working with the moon phases keeps us in tune with nature’s cycles of seed planting, drawing in energy, growth, reaping, and releasing.
Crystals, resins, and natural incense like white sage and palo santo are natural earth elements that will add extra energetic power to your monthly moon rituals.
Everything in the universe is connected and cyclical. From the orbits of the planets to the double helix of our DNA, we see life’s spiraling patterns everywhere. The Moon influences the Earth based on its cycles: its gravitational pull impacts the tides; it impacts our bodies since we are mostly water. Working with the moon phases keeps us in tune with nature’s cycles of seed planting, drawing in energy, growth, reaping, and releasing. Metaphysical tools such as crystals, resins, and natural incense like white sage and palo santo holy wood are natural Earth elements that add extra energetic power to your practices! Here is your guide to the Lunar Cycles and recommended practices and the accompanying metaphysical tools available from The Age of Eleven suite.
New Moon/Dark Moon: Cleansing, Intention Setting
The New Moon is your blank slate! Become clear about what you want to bring forth this lunar cycle, and write it down. Use Selenite for this phase. Selenite is a cleansing crystal derived from the Greek word “Selene,” which means “goddess of the moon.” Use selenite in meditation or to cleanse and charge other crystals as you plant the seeds of manifestation.
Waxing Moon: Building, Drawing
As the moon grows, lay the foundation upon which you will expand your desires. Fertility rituals can be worked at this time, whether it is for love, conceiving a child, or giving birth to any other creative endeavor. Use Rose Quartz and Moonstone to cultivate self-love, womb wellness, and creative expression.
First Quarter Moon: Attracting, Cultivating
When the Moon is half-full in the sky, use your focused attention to maximize your intentions. Build upon your desires through meditation and altar work with incense and crystal grids. Tap into your manifestation energy and work your prosperity magic! Unakite is a metamorphic crystal featuring several minerals fused into one. It is perfect for bringing things together.
Waxing Gibbous: Amplifying, Manifesting
When the Moon is about three-quarters full in the sky, abundance, prosperity, protection, success, love and friendship should be at the forefront of your mind. Update your journal with a list of that for which you give thanks. Use Green Aventurine and Citrine for good fortune, prosperity, and abundance.
Full Moon: Recognizing, Energizing
Harvest time! The Full Moon is bright and energetic. Emotions are at an all-time high, and sexual energy peaks. Keep yourself in balance by taking time to meditate and relax. This phase is when we reap the fullness from our New Moon seeds. At this time, keep gratitude at the forefront of your mind and reflect upon that which you’ve brought forth. Use Clear Quartz to energize all your bodily energy centers. Place any gemstones you own outside or near a window for a Full Moon bath to cleanse and naturally recharge them.
Now is also the best lunar time to make Crystal Fire Water Elixir. Put a few raw clear quartz points in a glass container filled with distilled water (to ensure that the only minerals present in your Crystal Fire Water Elixir come from your raw clear quartz). Place the glass outside or in a window for 24 hours the day the Full Moon is exact. Drinking the charged water after the Full Moon is a way of internalizing the metaphysical properties of quartz, plus the abundant lunar energy.
