This August's Blue Moon is about energizing your 12 Astrological Houses. In this article, you'll learn about your 12 Houses and determine which ones could be improved by the Supermoon. You can make exceptional progress on many levels of life when you harness the lunar vibes. But the window of opportunity is small and elusive, don't let it slip away. 

When the Super Blue Moon comes around, grab hold of your Lapis Lazuli manifestation crystals and take advantage of this magnificent blessing. You are about to learn the meaning of the Blue Moon and how to benefit from its majestic moonbeams. 

The last blue Supermoon was in December 2009 and the next one won't be until August 2032. Keep your eye on the sky.

To keep up with crystal news and other important astrological events that impact your life, join the Satin Crystals VIP.

What is a Blue Moon?

Most months have one Full Moon, which is the night that the moon is a big pie in the sky. Once in a long while, there are two Full Moons in a single month. When this happens, the second Full Moon of the month is called the Blue Moon. 

You experience a Full Moon about once every 30 days. You experience a Blue Moon just once every 32 months. And as for the Blue Supermoon, well, that is even more spectacular. If you miss this one, you'll have to wait 9 more years until the next.

See the Lunar Eclipse and Full Moons guide to learn detailed information about the Full Moon and additional lunar activities that benefit you.

When is the Full Blue Supermoon?

This month opened with the Sturgeon Full Moon on August 1, 2023. It closes with the rare Blue Full Moon on August 30-31. The entire Blue Moon lunation cycle goes from August 30 - September 29, 2023. That means that you can benefit from the Blue Supermoon vibes throughout September, not just on the day it rises. Your Lapis Lazuli crystals will store the moon's energy within.

We haven't seen a Blue Supermoon since October 2009. What a lucky moment of manifestation for you! This is nothing to scoff about.

The exact time and date of the Blue Moon depends on your region. No matter where you are or what the weather is, the entire planet benefits from the Blue Full Moon. Even if you can't see the Blue Full Moon, you can still feel the frequency.

By charging your healing crystals in the windowsill or garden that day and night, your gemstones absorb super moonbeam powers. When you do crystal rituals, your entire body illuminates with the frequency of the Blue Moon.

How does Lapis stone align with the Blue Moon?

Honor the rare Blue Moon with beautiful Lapis Lazuli. This navy gemstone is often accompanied by golden Pyrite flecks. When you gaze into Lapis, it's like looking up into the starry Universe.

This chosen crystal helps you navigate the skies and harness the healing energy of the Blue Moon. Lapis brings you elements of sky, air, and water. It cleanses you of the old and prepares you for the new. It summons astrological powers and lunar light to guide you to success. 

Lapis Lazuli opens your higher chakras and aligns perfectly with the intuitive Third Eye chakra. During this Full Moon period, you have the chance to blast open your psychic powers. With the help of Lapis, you gain visions and insights like you never imagined.

Do you have your Lapis Lazuli gemstones ready? You will need them for the Blue Moon cycle of August 30th to September 29th, 2023. Check out the Satin Crystals Lapis Collection to find your perfect pieces now.

After you have collected your Lapis, you are ready to use them in activating your 12 Astrological Houses. You will find detailed information about your 12 Houses below.

    What is the spiritual meaning of the Blue Moon?

    The Blue Supermoon is a time when you are meant to do something extraordinary. It's all about expanding your horizons and building upon your cosmic Houses. That means breaking free from your comfort zone or routine to engage in an event or activity that you usually wouldn't foresee doing. Now is the moment to overcome those mental, physical, and/or spiritual boundaries.

    During this Blue Moon lunation of August 30 - September 29, 2023, you are meant to reflect upon your 12 Astrological houses. An expansion of the self is yearning to happen. Nourish your soul with growth and learning. 

    What are my 12 Astrological Houses?

    You are about to learn about your 12 Astrological Houses. Use your intuition to determine which of your Houses needs to be worked on during the Blue Moon cycle of August to September 2023. If you need additional guidance, two methods are presented a bit later in this article.

    12 Astrological Houses & Lapis Crystals

    These are the 12 Houses of Astrology and the Lapis crystals that correspond with each House. Read about each House and intuitively sense which ones you need to work on over the next 30 days:

    1st House of Self

    • Meaning: This is centered around your personality and presentation in the world. If you desire a change in your personality, reflect on your inner life purpose. If you desire a change in your presentation, prepare to overhaul your look and fashion style.
    • Lapis Stones & Jewelry: If you desire a change to your inner self, use Lapis stones such as a sphere or polished gemstone for meditation. If you desire a change to your presentation, add Lapis jewelry to your wardrobe. 

     2nd House of Material

    • Meaning: This is about your possessions. The Blue Moon might be a time that you release yourself of things that are no longer serving you. Alternatively, it could be a time for you to make a big-ticket purchase.

    • Lapis Eggs: Place a Lapis egg in your financial corner or money area. This will help you create a nest egg of abundance, whether you decide to budget or spend during the Blue Moon cycle. 

    3rd House of Communication

    • Meanings: This is about how you relate to others. Now could be the time that you muster up the courage to finally speak your mind about something that's bothering you. Alternatively, it could be that you need to keep your mouth shut and open your ears to truly listen to what someone else is trying to say.
    • Lapis Pendants: Wear a Lapis pendant close to your Throat chakra throughout the Blue Full Moon. This gem will guide you on when to speak and when to hold your tongue. Become a master of communication with Lapis Lazuli.

    4th House of Family and Home

    • Meaning: This is regarding your domestic dwelling and the people who live with you. The Blue Moon could be a time for a major change, such as a relocation. Alternatively, it could be that you aren't spending enough time at home and need to pay more attention to your family.
    • Lapis Hearts: Home is where the heart is. When it comes to family matters and domestic dwelling, open yourself to the flow of love. A Lapis Lazuli heart brings peace and harmony to your house during the Blue Moon, even during difficult times.

    5th House of Creation

    • Meaning: This is about both creative energy and procreation. It could be that you're ready to start a family during the Blue Moon cycle. Alternatively, it could mean you have some creativity that needs to be expressed, like a book to write or a work of art to produce.
    • Lapis Bracelets: Whatever it is you wish to create during this Full Moon, get busy! Lapis bracelets lend a helping hand in manifestation so that all your dreams can come true.

    6th House of Health

    • Meaning: This has to do with your physical health. It could be that you need to start a new diet or exercise routine. Alternatively, you might have a health issue that's not resolving and it's time to consider a different approach.
    • Lapis Tumbled: These versatile stones harness the incredible power of the Blue Moon and deliver a dose of divine healing. Use Lapis tumbles for crystal layouts, grids, mandalas, elixirs, and to hold as you do energy healing work.

    7th House of Partnership

    • Meaning: This is all about partners- romantic, platonic, or business. The Blue Moon could mean the beginning or end of a major relationship. Alternatively, it could mean you need to change the way a current relationship is operating.
    • Lapis Rings: Strong partnerships require lasting commitment. A Lapis ring on your finger helps remind you that giving time and energy to the right people is worth it! Yet, releasing those who no longer serve your higher good is an important part of being true to yourself.

    8th House of Sex

    • Meaning: This is all about your sex life. The Blue Moon is the time to expand your horizons and try something new. Alternatively, it could mean taking a break from sexuality and being chaste for a while.
    • Lapis Animals: Go wild with your instincts. Lapis animal figurines channel the raw and natural magnetism of the animal kingdom. Get a pair if you wish to live out your fantasies with a partner or a solo figurine if you'll use the Blue Moon cycle to reflect on yourself for the time being.

    9th House of Philosophy

    • Meaning: This is concerning your thoughts and ideals. It could be that a belief you hold needs to be reconsidered. Alternatively, it could be that the Blue Moon blesses you with a new revelation.
    • Lapis Pendulums: Philosophy is about flexibility and changing ideas. The Lapis pendulum swings back and forth to the rhythm of your mind and the Universe. Whenever you are in doubt, tap into your subconscious for the right answer to any question.

    10th House of Career

    • Meaning: This is concerning your place in the professional world. The Blue Moon could be a time that you need to make a major career change. It could also be that you need to look within your field and improve on something.
    • Lapis Cufflinks: Get serious and get noticed with Lapis cufflinks. These professional accessories command respect without sacrificing style. Looking like two Blue Moons on your sleeves, they give you the upper hand in the workplace, no matter who you are.

    11th House of Friendship

    • Meaning: This is all about your social life. Maybe you need to disconnect ties with someone who no longer serves your best interest. Alternatively, maybe you need to step up and be a better friend to someone.
    • Lapis Earrings: A pair of earrings represent you and your friend. When you wear Lapis earrings, you keep your friends close in mind. You become a better pal and in turn, your quality of life increases. Don't wear earrings? Any pair of matching Lapis jewels or stones will do the job.

    12th House of Spirituality

    • Meaning: This is associated with your spiritual life. Your soul may be stirring to achieve the next level of divine understanding; you are due for a retreat or healing session. Alternatively, you might be spending too much of your time thinking spiritually and the Blue Moon is asking you to get back into your worldly role.
    • Lapis Merkabas or Lapis Chakra Jewelry: To expand your spiritual experiences, a Lapis Merkaba is the gem. This sacred blue star accelerates your vibrational progress. On the other hand, if you need to dial down on spiritual pursuits and focus on the physical reality, Lapis chakra jewelry taps into the Blue Moon energy in a balanced way.

    How do I Choose my Astrological Houses?

      Only you know what's missing on your soul's journey during this Blue Moon cycle. Break the rut and grow in one or more of your astrological Houses. Don't keep pushing it off for another day.

      You have read about the 12 houses and some may have popped out at you. Perhaps you know exactly what you need to work on during this Full Blue Moon cycle of August 30th - September 29th.

      It could be that you're still confused about which Astrological Houses you are meant to build up this lunation. If this is the case, you can use Lapis to guide you. Here are two different methods you can use:

      • Reflect on Lapis stones to determine which of your Astrological Houses need a major change during the Blue Moon. Holding the crystals in your hand while in silent meditation or self-reflection helps bring mental clarity.

      • Choose the Astrological Houses requiring change by way of crystal divination. You could draw out the 12 houses as a pie-wheel or block chart, and see where your Lapis lands when you drop it from a short, cushioned distance. If you feel you need more change, do it two or three times to get a few different Houses to work on.

      Once you have made your decisions, refer back to the 12 Astrological Houses guide and begin your crystal healing under the Blue Moon vibrations.

      For even faster and more powerful results, combine your Lapis rituals with the three Moon Crystals.

      What are Moon Crystals?

      Moonstone, Selenite, and Labradorite are the three mightiest Moon crystals. They harmonize with the moon's frequency. You may use them during each lunar event, including the Blue Moon.

      Visit the Moon Crystal Collection to discover stones that call to you.

      Learn about how each of the three Moon Crystals benefits you:

      rainbow moonstone sphere
      Moonstone: This is the number one moon crystal. It is the staple crystal for all your lunar practices. Moonstone aligns strongest with the Full Moon. Its bright and luminous qualities show you the way ahead. Moonstone holds the power of a million moons and delivers it to the palm of your hand.
      labradorite sphere
      Labradorite: Full of moon magic, this dark beauty flashes with rainbows like the midnight sky flecked with celestial stars. Labradorite aligns with the New Moon, helping you find new beginnings in the darkness. Use Labradorite and feel like you are being guided by your spirit guides, angels, and all the beneficial beings of the unseen world.
      white selenite sphere
      Selenite: Named after Goddess Selene, this moon crystal glows with a glorious silky white sheen. Selenite aligns with the crescent moon, protecting your aura through the journeys of life. Use Selenite and feel hopeful that the world is working in your favor because you believe miracles do come true.

      7 Crystal Rituals for the Full Moon

      Now that you know a bit about the trinity of moon crystals and the special crystal for this month, learn how to use them under the Full Moon. 

      Ritual Idea #1: Cleanse, Charge, and Program Crystals under the Full Moon

      It is ideal to gather your Moon Crystals even before the Full Moon happens so that you can properly cleanse them beforehand. After they are cleansed, you will charge them under the Full Moon and then program them with your intention. By doing so, the stones are supercharged to help you on your mission throughout the lunar month. Do this with your moon crystal balls, shapes, and jewelry.

      Ritual Idea #2: Crystal Healing Mandalas under the Full Moon

      Instead of just charging your crystals under the moonlight, why not arrange them in a beautiful mandala formation? Create works of art with the stones, and then carefully lay them under the moonlight for charging. If possible, put your mandala in the garden overnight to absorb the healing light.

      Ritual Idea #3: Crystal Layouts under the Full Moon

      Why not recharge your entire body instead of just your crystals in the moonlight? Lie down in a comfortable place during the Full Moon, preferably near a window or even outside. Place your Moon Crystals on your body and along your chakras. You can also place them around your body instead, just in case you fall asleep. Not only are your stones getting supercharged for the month, but so are you!

      Ritual Idea #4: Dance Under the Full Moon in a Crystal Grid 

      Form a giant grid around your space, indoors or outdoors. This grid includes a medley of Moon Crystals in the shape of a circle, square, rectangle, or even a triangle. As the Full Moon rises, dance within the grid of crystals. You are sure to feel supercharged! Have extra time? Meditate in your grid, do yoga in your grid, read in your grid... anything that benefits your soul is right for you to do in your grid.

      Ritual Idea #5: Crystal Ball Gazing under the Full Moon

      Did you know that the moon is revered for its psychic powers? It's no surprise that healers, gypsies, witches, and all that are drawn to metaphysics do practices under the lunar moon. Grab hold of your Moonstone, Selenite, or Labradorite sphere and do Crystal Ball Gazing. You will receive a rush of visions and messages, even more than on an ordinary day. 

      Ritual Idea #6: Wear your Moon Jewelry during the Full Moon

      This is an easy and simple yet powerful ritual. Make sure you have your moon jewelry on during the Full Moon. The jewelry will charge up nicely, bringing you a chance for new beginnings and a fresh start. If you're on the go during the Full Moon, you'll still have lunar power with you. If you're at home, you should wear your moon jewelry during all and any of the other rituals you are doing. The more energy you get, the better.

      Ritual Idea #7: Create a Moon Elixir under the Full Moon

      Why not create a moon elixir that you can use all month long? Moonstone or Labradorite can be used for your elixir potions and drinks, but Selenite cannot because of its fragility. Create a jug of crystal water or crystal oils so you have the moon's energy all jarred up for your convenience and benefit.

      There are lots and lots of activities you can do during the Full Moon with Moon Crystals. Check out our Peace not Panic series and the 25 "Stuck Indoor" ritual and craft ideas. Now that you're allowed outside again, do them in the garden if you desire!

      What is a Full Moon?

      If you're looking for more scientific facts and spiritual meanings about a Full Moon, visit the Lunar Eclipse and Full Moons article.

      What is a Supermoon?

      The Supermoon is when the moon looks extra large from our view here on Earth. It happens when the moon is either in its Full or New Moon stage. The moon is on its path of orbit that is the nearest to Earth. This gives it the effect of being a big Supermoon. It is usually from 7% to 15% larger than a typical Full Moon.

      The moon appears brighter too. Sometimes it's obvious and sometimes you wouldn't even know that it's a Supermoon just by looking.

      The scientific name for Supermoon is "perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system". Try saying that three times quickly...or just even once!

      Wow, Melody! We love your story. That’s such a great response from your son. When we find the stones that call to us, it makes all the experimentation worthwhile. Thanks for your sharing your experiences, I’m sure it will help and enlighten many others who come by Satin Crystals.

      MELODY BARRUETA - November 4, 2020

      Some Blue Moon Results: So along with making Moon water, I also laid some other stones out under the Blue Moon’s light to cleanse and energize. I then asked my 10yr. old son (who has Behavioral Defiance Disorder…basically says “no” often and could be called “Grumpy Bear,” from Care Bears) to squeeze stones and see if he gets any response, ie. physical sensations , like “chills,” aches, etc., or emotional, like feeling uneasy, calm, happy, or energized. After briefly holding 3 different stones and no effect, with the 4th stone he felt an undeniable sensation of something brushing down the back of his left arm, from shoulder to elbow. He flung his arm right up and looked around him saying, “whoa, that was weird!” He didn’t want to say it was from this rock just yet (as he thought this whole activity of mine kind of strange anyways, lol). As this was a Sunstone and I still had stones for him to test, we continued by placing another Sunstone (without me telling him the type) in his hand. Again, he soon got a firm press against his arm. As it turns out, this stone is good for use by someone who is in the habit of saying “NO” to others. We had such a good laugh as this was a confirmed trait of Sunstone that I had found in several references and couldn’t have been more clear on this being the stone to resonate with him!. I have him take it to school in his pocket and thus far, he’s had 1 day of calm cooperation WITH the stone and 1 “Grumpy Bear,” day without. This is awesome, it’s almost as if the Sunstone was nudging him, saying, “here you go, I’m your stone,” haha! Love it!

      Sheila Satin - November 1, 2020

      Hi Melody, your plan sounds like a great way to take advantage of blue moon energy. We would love to hear your results! Happy November :)

      Melody - November 1, 2020

      I am a Cancerian and am SO excited that I just learned about this Blue Moon a few days ago and was able to select some crystals and minerals from a collection my Mother gave me 10yrs. ago, to place in water to cleanse and energize under a Powerful Blue Moon!!! I have NO experience really working with these…. but as it is MY Intention, it will work just how I intend it will! HaHA. I chose Rose Quartz, Green Aventurine, Moonstone, Red Jasper, Amythest, a yellow-toned Mangesite and Green Opal. I also jotted down on several sticky notes and attached to the lidded mason jar, what quality each element will supply to the water. Of course, after realizing the notes would block the moon’s light, I removed them and placed them underneath the jar instead.

      Lisa Satin - October 5, 2020

      Hi Kelly,

      Always good to hear from a fellow Libran. My birthday is October 11th so like you, I’m also contemplating what to do for the big event.

      This October we have so many lunar events, and with your birthday falling on the New Moon, you are due for an extra big surge of change.

      New moons and birthdays are a reset. If there’s something(s) you want to drop out of your life, now’s the time to decide, so you can get rid of them by your birthday. If there is something(s) you want to add in your life, also decide now so you can get the momentum rolling for your New Moon birthday.

      I published an article about the October Blue Moon coming later in the month. It discusses the 12 Houses of Astrology. Sounds like you can get started early on that. Determine what areas in your life you want to work on, and check out some of the ritual ideas:

      I see that you have ordered crystal balls, and next week I’m going to be emailing Crystal Ball affirmations that you might enjoy. We also have other affirmations you can look through, or make your own depending on what changes you want to make for your birthday:

      Let us know if we can be of further assistance, and Happy October!

      Lisa Satin

      Kelly - October 5, 2020

      Hi Ladies,
      A quick question for you. My birthday is October 22 and I know that there is a new moon on that day. What should I say that night. Is there any significance to a new moon and someone’s birthday being on the same night?
      Thanks, Kelly
