Crystals for the Full Moon! These lunar stones are associated with the most powerful phase of the Moon. They anchor and amplify its energy for your life, spiritual work or Full Moon rituals…
The Full Moon Phase
The Full Moon occurs around once every 29 days. A true Full Moon is when it’s 100% full and appears as a perfect circle in the sky. You could see this as when the Moon’s energy is at maximum strength. But you don’t need to see the Full Moon to feel the effects.
Working With The Full Moon
You can work with the Full Moon in a variety of ways. Many people look at it as an all-purpose day for enhancing all spiritual work. It can be cleansing or add power to what you do. Many see the Full Moon as a climax in the lunar cycle which represents completion.
TIP: The Astrologer, Yasmin Boland has a very comprehensive holistic guide to working with all the phases of the Moon in relation to your Sun sign in her book Moonology.

Checking Full Moon Times
You may notice that some printed calendars show the Full Moon days and even times but make sure the times are correct for your country. If you want to be precise, check a good Moon app or website like Deluxe Moon. I find their app is really handy to have on my phone.
TIP:Mark the days of the Full Moon on your calendar or planner with a circle symbol.
Working With Crystals For The Full Moon
You could wear one of these stones or carry it on you during the day of the Full Moon. You might want to balance the energy with a grounding crystal. If you find that the Full Moon makes you feel overly emotional or argumentative then you don’t need more moon energy from these crystals.
You can also use crystals for the Full Moon phase in any meditations, visualisations, ceremonies, rituals or spiritual work you are doing at this time.
6 Crystals For The Full Moon
The following crystals will work well on any Full Moon regardless of which sign it occurs in. I chose these crystals because they all carry the general energy of the Moon. They are all activated by the Full Moon phase.
This magical crystal is also known as Satin Spar. Selenite takes its name from Selene, the Greek Goddess of the Moon. This crystal anchors lunar energy and even looks like crystallised moonlight.
Selenite is deeply cleansing, fills your aura with light and raises your vibration.
It may come as no surprise to you that Moonstone is the most well known and traditional stone of the Moon. This stone comes in a variety of different colours but the white, cream and peach varieties are best for the Full Moon phase. It has a slightly pearlescent tone but no iridescent colours (see Rainbow Moonstone below).
Moonstone anchors lunar energy, balances your emotions and helps you tap into your intuition and feminine power. It also stimulates dreaming and accessing the subconscious mind.
Beautiful Rainbow Moonstone is also known as White Labradorite. It can be white or clear and has an iridescent sheen with rainbow colours like blue and green. Some stones have black patches and spots on them. This crystal is high vibration and less earthy than traditional Moonstone.
Work with Rainbow Moonstone to anchor lunar energy and enhance your dreams. Rainbow Moonstone helps you in developing your psychic abilities, especially clairvoyance.
This form of Quartz is also known as Milky Quartz. It is really any white, milky looking or creamy coloured Quartz. I see it a lot here in England, as pebbles along rivers or the beach and even as stones in peoples driveways.
Snow Quartz has a soft, soothing and peaceful energy. It is very calming and carries lunar energy.
Candle Quartz is sometimes known as Pineapple Quartz. This is a formation of Snow Quartz that grows into crystal points with a ‘melted wax’ appearance, caused by the merging of multiple crystal points around the central crystal.
Candle Quartz has a peaceful healing lunar energy. It enhances meditation and brings tranquillity.
This crystal is not so well known, it is also known as Girasol Quartz or Moon Quartz. This is a form of clear to milky Quartz with a misty interior that is caused by traces of Aluminium. There are also pink stones.
Spheres and tumble stones have a white glow around the edges when exposed to natural light. Work with Girasol to access higher states of consciousness and for personal transformation.
