INSIDE: By choosing the right crystals for full moon rituals, you can better manage your emotions during this charged time. These stones will support you, ground, you, and help you feel fulfilled.
Every month, there is that special time when the werewolves come out to play. Of course, we’re talking about the full moon. During this time, many people experience weird moods, insomnia, and charged emotions.
Our moon has power over 70% of our planet: the oceans. Therefore, it’s only natural that it also has power over us since we are made of 75% water. That's why special care is recommended during the full moon of each month.
The full moon carries within it the energies of fulfillment, coming full circle, culmination, overflowing, and passion. It’s no coincidence that there’s an increase in crime rate, accidents, and passion during the time of and around the full moon.
If you fall in the group of people that feel the effects of the full moon's intensity, you might want to consider using these crystals for full moon and their healing/soothing properties during these times.
Best Crystals for the Full Moon
Here's a list of crystals that you can use during the full moon:
- Clear Quartz
- White Opal
- Black Tourmaline
The energies of these crystals don’t just provide a soothing frequency; they can also aid us on our quest to completing the goals we began during the new moon.
Everything that is due its culmination can be brought full circle with the help of these crystals.
Let's look at each of these crystals for full moon in more detail...
People born during the waning lunar phase might feel overwhelmed with the energy of Selenite because the energy of the full moon is captured in this stone.
People that find Selenite’s frequency overwhelming might consider using it during the days when they feel drained, blue, or under the weather.
Moonstone is the perfect choice for people who were born during the waning phase of the moon. Its gentle energy attracts fluid, pleasant dreams, it evens out the blood pressure, and it can help an overthinking mind to fight insomnia.
So if you have some unavoidable business outside on the night of the full moon, make sure to have a big piece of Amethyst on your person, or in your bag.
Another one of the best protection crystals for the full moon is Labradorite. Sleep with it under your pillow three days leading to the full moon and two days after the full moon. If you’re going out during the night of the full moon, wear a Labradorite necklace.
Clear Quartz is always a great choice, but as a full moon crystal, it has the power to even out and elevate heavy energies. This is especially so if the full moon finds itself transiting through the sign of Aries, Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.
If the full moon gets in an aspect with Mars, Pluto or Saturn, it can be even harder to carry out the heavy energies. In these cases, Clear Quartz combined with Moonstone does wonders for one’s mind and body.
White Opal is a great crystal for full moon rituals, especially if the full moon finds itself traversing the waters of Aries, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces.
White Opal has the power to release anger, heal disordered energy, calm disrupted emotions, and even out the emotional fluctuations that follow bipolar disorders.
Another perfect crystal for the full moon in Libra, Taurus, Gemini, Aquarius or Sagittarius is Larimar.
Some of its peak properties are enlightening and healing of emotional trauma that is stuck in the physical level. It does wonders for relieving cramps, bringing peace and clarity, and attracting devotional love.
Black Tourmaline is an amazing grounding stone. When the full moon sails across the stormy waters of Cancer and Pisces, or when it drowns in the fiery pits of Aries and Leo, keeping a Black Tourmaline on your person is a great countermeasure. It’s definitely one of the best crystals for a Full Moon.
Full Moon Rituals According to the Elements
Keeping an eye on the elements of full moons is very important. Since the full moon has peak energies whirling all around the globe, it’s best to “come prepared.” Crystals for full moon can come in handy.
Rituals for Full Moons in a Fire Sign
When we have a full moon in a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), it’s best to do full moon rituals that release pent up energy, sex magic, solving unsolved issues from the past, releasing old grudges, and practicing gratitude for all the achievements we’ve come to attain thus far.
Crystals that help us wade through the fiery forests of these full moons are: Black Tourmaline, White Opal, Moonstone, and Labradorite. All of these stones assist us with grounding. They also have a soothing effect that feels like a balm on a burn wound.
During fiery full moons, we tend to lash out and our anger can easily get the best of us. These stones also help in that area, especially Moonstone and White Opal.
Rituals for Full Moons in a Water Sign
During full moons in water signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio), you might want to brace yourself for sudden emotional outbursts, illogical behavior, and suppressed issues rising up. Grounding and healing are the key words for watery full moons.
Crystals that can aid you during water full moons are: Larimar, Black Tourmaline, Amethyst, and Clear Quartz.
Larimar helps with healing and calming of the emotions, Black Tourmaline grounds, and Amethyst combined with Clear Quartz helps us to gain clarity of sight and to remain level-headed when our emotions take the wheel.
Rituals for Full Moons in an Earth Sign
When the full moon finds itself “stuck” in the muddy waters of earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), we might need some back up in order to find our breath and feel a bit lighter. Earth full moons can have our backs against the wall, and they can make us feel stuck.
We also tend to face off against our previous failures, under-achievements, and lost battles during an earth full moon. That’s where Selenite, Clear Quartz, White Opal, and Moonstone come into play. Their soothing, uplifting and energizing frequencies can get us back to breathing normally.
Don’t forget to drink a lot of water during earth full moons. By keeping yourself hydrated, you'll be able to think more clearly.
Rituals for Full Moons in an Air Sign
Full moons in air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) seem the lightest of all the elements. They, too, have their downsides, but they are the easiest to get through. Insomnia, overthinking, anxiety attacks, and multitasking are regular culprits of these full moons.
During air full moons, we want to stay focused and preserve our mental energy and clarity. Crystals such as Black Tourmaline, Labradorite, Amethyst, and Clear Quartz can do wonders for our psyche.
Doing things with clay, painting, sewing, writing, and reading can all prove very grounding and beneficial for air full moons. You might want to stay near a body of water, too.
Being focused through creative work is great for these transits, and having your grounding crystals on you is essential.
Stay safe and grounded during full moons, watch your thoughts, level out your emotions, and use the fire in your belly for productive and creative goals. Full moons are very charged transits, so if you like to enchant objects or charge potions, do it during a full moon.
