Each month we watch for the moon cycles knowing that on some level we are influenced by its light and its darkness. There is an old saying: “The wise man understands the stars; the fool is ruled by them.”
It’s useful to know where in the calendar the new and full moons fall. On these days we can prepare our wishes and open our hearts to receive abundance with each new moon, and close a chapter of our lives before we move on with the full. Mother Earth has provided us with tools that can enhance the energy of each lunar cycle. We are moving into Cancer, the sign ruled by the moon. This is like a double whammy, so lunar crystals and gemstones are doubly helpful now. Here are two stones that can assist you over this next week.
Named for the moon, this is a stone of new beginnings. It’s most often white mirroring the light reflected by the lunar surface. Moonstone helps you find your purpose, discover hidden secrets, and connect with your intuitive skills. As we move from Gemini into Cancer this stone can guide you as you navigate your emotional world. However, if you are highly sensitive then use this stone with caution. It can awaken the ability to draw in other people’s dramas, especially around the full moon.
This week use it to guide you on your path. Invite the blue flashes buried within the white to inspire your next big adventure.
Selene is the Greek moon goddess and this is her stone. It is protective while at the same time masterfully increases awareness of other dimensions of being. It has many layers of shiny fibers. Using this stone can help you to access the multilayered being that you are. Selenite is powerful it can bring you to a place of peace where there was once “lunacy.” Particularly potent at the full moon it can help birth new ideas into form.
This week use Selenite to help you focus on an idea, vision, or wish and then ask the goddess Selene to help you carve out a plan of action for your desire to manifest at the next full moon.
