NEW MOON CRYSTALS
New Moon phases are a dark, quiet time of introspection, turning within to get clear about what intentions and seeds we want to plant for the following Moon cycle. The intentions we set to manifest or spell work we do will generally come to fruition to some extent within the next lunar cycle, with some progress potentially already seen at the following Full Moon, but a full cycle is 6 months when the corresponding Full Moon will occur in the same Sign (this is especially true for Eclipses)!
Here you will find the best crystals to work with the energy of the New Moon;
Tourmaline - One of the best protective and grounding stones, Black Tourmaline helps shield our aura and absorb any negativity. Pairing it with the darkness of the New Moon adds a layer of rootedness and a sense of safety.
Labradorite - This magical iridescent crystal is said to hold flashes of the Aurora Borealis in its being. A powerful stone of transformation, Labradorite works on the Third Eye and Crown Chakra to help us open up to guidance from our higher selves and access our intuition. It is a particularly supportive stone in times of change, things that we often welcome in on the New Moon.
Lapis Lazuli - This potent stone of truth works on the Throat Chakra to help us express our most authentic selves. Prized since Ancient Egyptian times, this beloved crystal is a wonderful ally to work with the inky night of the New Moon. Lapis Lazuli can help us see clearly our Divine truth and where to grow to for our highest good.
Black Obsidian - Another protective stone, Black Obsidian was used in medieval times for crystal ball scrying and mirror gazing. It is said to be particularly beneficial for dealing with difficult emotions in a gentle way. Its energy connects with the Root Chakra for grounding and a sense of confidence.
Smoky Quartz - The final crystal to protect our energy during the darkness of the New Moon is Smoky Quartz, a transmuting crystal that is said to have the power to not only absorb negative energy but to also transform it into something positive. It helps clear the aura and acts like a protective shield,
