Grabbing at your crystals in the hopes that they keep you from orbiting out into space and becoming a full-blown lunatic this full moon? You're not alone! Tonight's superman in Taurus—a lunar occasion all about releasing, reflection, grounding, and earthing—is set to be an energetically super-changed goody, so grip your gemstones and knuckle down.
Cleaning your crystals is as important as taking out the trash. You wouldn't want to live in a house full of rubbish, so let's make sure you cleanse your crystals and don't become an energetic slob! The moon is like the fairy godmother of crystal cleaning, and its bright lunar energy serves to cleanse them of all lingering negativity.
Ideally, you should leave your crystals outside or on a windowsill tonight so they can bask in the cleansing energies of the moon. But don't stress if you forget; the moon's energy will stick around for about three days, so you have a window of time each month to get those crystals of yours cleaned up. All you need to do is leave them out, and your intuition will tell you when they're all charged up. Easy!
Here are a few crystals that are great for this supermoon. Make clearing them a priority, and watch as they totally transform your life and help you manifest your dreams into action.
Moonstone's name is enough to show you that it's an obvious starter crystal to kick off all things moon energy. This little gem is all about connecting to la luna, and it helps us tap into our intuition and higher wisdom. It is said to help us avoid overreaction, deter stress, and heighten our psychic abilities. It will support you as you let go of negative energies with the full moon.
2. Tiger Eye
As its earthy brown and gold coloring would suggest, this stone is grounding and can help us reconnect with all things earth. Tiger eye supports change in life and helps to give you the clarity to manifest your ideal situation. It's a great stone to help keep you grounded and centered as it stimulates good judgment and can support you as you release what no longer serves you with the full moon.
3. Clear Quartz
This pretty clear stone acts as an energetic vacuum cleaner, sucking away bad vibes and cleaning the space around it. It's a great crystal to have with you no matter where the moon is in its cycle as it will help keep you in a clear, clean energetic space.
The pull of the supermoon can turn any self-respecting human into an off-the-scale lunatic. Emerald, a deep green stone, helps to keep balance and harmony. It opens and nurtures your heart chakra, helping to reveal the truth and helping you with your release.
5. Smoky Quartz
During a time when you're releasing old attitudes, smoky quartz is your ultimate crystal comrade. This stone can encourage you as you break bad habits and support a change in behavior. It's a powerful grounding and healing stone.
