The Sun enters Gemini on May 20 and illuminates the relationships sector of your chart! The end of May will focus on your partnerships, and a welcome fresh start on this front arrives during the new moon, in Gemini, on May 25. But of course, nothing can be too easy, Sagittarius.

The energy is affectionate, and party invitations will flood in—but you need to watch for overindulging.

During this new moon, Venus will square (a rough astrological aspect) the lord of the underworld, Pluto, in Capricorn, kicking up sensitive issues of self-worth and security (or insecurity).

Issues of jealousy and possessiveness will flare. Pluto is a complex planet: Its energy can be transformative, and it has a shady, manipulative side. Thus you could make massive changes, but you could also see a darker side to someone or something—don’t ignore it, Sag, it’s being shown to you for a reason!

Take red flags seriously, and use the new moon, in Gemini energy, to create a fresh start for your partnerships. Spend time with people who value and respect you instead of getting lost in unhealthy relationships.

By the end of the month, Sagittarius, you’ll be way more organized—thanks to that full moon and Mercury in Taurus. And you’ll have a better idea of who you should spend your time with due to that fun-as-hell opposition between Venus and Jupiter. The new moon, and that Venus/Pluto clash, will definitely show you people’s true colors.

Top 4 Crystals to Work with Moon Energy

Let’s talk about crystals we can use to work with moon energy. Whether it be for the full moon, new moon or any phase of the moon.

Intention

I feel that when you’re working with different phases of the moon, it’s not so much about the specific crystals that you choose to work with, because there are several different ones, but more about your intention of working with that particular moon phase.

There are several crystals that have vibrational frequencies that align with the moon in general, no matter what phase the moon is in at that particular time. Which is great b/c it makes uncomplicated work of it.

Again, it doesn’t matter whether it’s full moon or new moon, what I feel is most important is that you be very clear on what your intentions are & that you align them with that particular phase of the moon.

Here’s a very general summary of those energies…

Full Moon Energy

It’s a time when you reap what you’ve sown.

It’s when you’re grateful for whatever lessons you’ve learned in last moon’s cycle, or for whatever intentions and seeds that you planted that actually came to fruition.

It’s about completion.

Yang energy.

New Moon Energy

A time to plant seeds and a time of new beginnings.

Starting and growing something new.

Great time to set intentions.

Ying energy.

The crystals I’m recommending here resonate very strongly with moon energy at all phases.

My Crystal Recommendations for working with Moon Energy

1. Selenite

Selenite is a beautiful crystal that actually has a sort of iridescence or sheen to it that reminds us very much of the moon. It’s got that tell-tale moon beam glow.

Selenite embodies goddess energy, and it’s a crystal that allows us to more easily communicate with our higher selves.

Selenite often comes in many different forms. It can be polished, like a heart or a palm stone, or shaped into a wand. Sometimes you will see the natural selenite towers, which come in a range of sizes from small to large.

You may have even heard about this beautiful, magical selenite crystal cave in Mexico. Have you heard of it? It’s called the Cave of Giants, where these huge selenite, (actually, gypsum; gypsum is selenite) humongous crystals have grown.

It’s not a place we can visit. No, not a place we can go. Too dangerous. It’s very difficult for even the geologists to go down there, but it’s just so magical to even think about and even know that a place like that exists on mama earth! Ya know?

It’s like the fortress of solitude that Superman went to while growing up and he learned all his stuff and all his knowledge and connected with his higher self. 

2. Moonstone

The next crystal for working with moon energy may come as no surprise to you, it’s moonstone. I have a moonstone, that I show you in the video, that just so happens to be carved into a sphere, so it looks very much like Luna herself.

It doesn’t need to be white moonstone, it can be any kind of moonstone, there’s even peach or black moonstone.

Some of them will have a flashy iridescence to them that you can see in certain light which is quite beautiful.

Any kind of moonstone is great for working with lunar energy at any moon phase.

It’s all about goddess and feminine energy. Makes sense b/c the moon itself is actually known to embody that goddess feminine energy.

Moonstone is also great for allowing you to more efficiently tap into your intuition.

It’s also about mystery. So, if you’re looking to align with that while working with certain lunar cycles, then you’ll want to work with moonstone.

3. Labradorite

Labradorite is another great choice to work with moon energy. It’s actually closely related to moonstone and it has that similar flash; a blue flash that you get in certain light, that iridescent quality again.

Labradorite is all about tapping into magic. Plus it’s also quite protective. If you’re feeling like you need some protective vibrational frequencies during a certain phase of the moon, then go ahead and try working with labradorite.

4. Opal

The moon is also known for having a vibrational connection to the element of water.

And another stone that we can work with to more closely align ourselves with that type of lunar energy is opal.

Opal allows us to align with that water energy so it’s also about purification.

Any type of true authentic opal will do, it doesn’t need to be white precious opal either. There are many different kinds.

Just don’t reach for opalite as a replacement, b/c that is a man-made “stone” & will not deliver the same kind of energy at all (which I talk about in this blog post.).

Laboradite and moonstone.

In May is the New moon in Gemini by http://gostica.com/astrology/super-new-moon-in-gemini-25-may-2017/2/

The potent Super New Moon falls in the air sign of Gemini on May 25th, 2017.

This Super New Moon is going to bring the start of a new cycle, however before this new energy can emerge, the old has to be cleared.
The old energy we are clearing this time around, comes from the events that stirred around the Scorpio Full Moon earlier in the month.
This was an intense Full Moon that likely brought things to the surface that needed to be cleared for some time.
This year, the Super New Moon in May will also be followed by another Super New Moon in June. This double hit of strong lunar energy means that things over the next few weeks may feel intense.

5 Steps for Setting Intentions & Manifestation with Crystals at New Moon from http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/new-moon-crystals/

1. First, I’ll gather the crystals I’ll be working with. This can vary greatly depending on what I want to manifest. But cleansing out energy from the last lunar cycle is always a must. Its like cleaning house.
Some tried & true crystals to work with at this time are:
staurolite (for physical body cleansing)

halite or clear quartz for energetic cleansing

labradorite for tapping in to the magic of the new moon

indigo gabbro for connecting to new moon energy,planting seeds and clear intention setting

moonstone always helps for tapping into lunar energies.
2. Then I begin by being in (or creating) sacred space. That will usually consist of sage smudging the space that I’ll be in ceremony in.

smudge

This is the smudge prayer to the four directions that I use:
We call on the Spirit of Sage to drive away negativity from our circle.

  • Spirit of the East, Great Spirit of Air, Bring peace and inspire this circle.
  • Spirit of the South, Great Spirit of Fire, energize and protect this circle.
  • Spirit of the West, Great Spirit of Water, bring purity and cleanse this circle.
  • Spirit of the North, Great Spirit of Earth, ground and strengthen this circle.
  • Great Father Sky, guard this circle from above.
  • Great Mother Earth, nurture this circle from below.

3. Next, I’ll contemplate what I’d like to cleanse & clear out & if there’s anything I’d like to “plant seeds” for. I’ll write those things down in a special notebook just for this purpose.

4. Now, I’ll take the crystals & place them on my altar along with lighting some candles. Sometimes, I’ll create a crystal grid dedicated to my purpose & intentions.

5. I’ll usually play some nice meditation music from Pandora & choose a crystals from the ones I’ve selected for this New Moon. With that crystal in my receptive hand, I’ll get comfy & do a short dedicated meditation focusing on the intentions, usually no more than 15 min.

So, that’s it. Not too complicated, but VERY POWERFUL!
