Have you ever heard of the expression "once in a blue moon"? Like this phrase suggests, the Blue Moon happens very rarely. One that lands on Halloween is even more phenomenal. When the Blue Moon does come around, you must grab hold of your 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.

You experience a Full Moon about once every 30 days. However, you experience a Blue Moon only once every 32 months. Why is that?
Most months have one Full Moon, which is the night that the Moon is a big full circle 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.
See the Lunar Eclipse and Full Moons guide to learn in detailed information about the Full Moon and additional lunar activities that benefit you.
October of 2020 has two Full Moons. The month opens with Hunter Full Moon on October 1st. The month closes with the rare Blue Full Moon on October 31st.
Not only is the Blue Moon rare, but this Blue Moon aligns perfectly with Halloween. Combine the magical energy of Halloween with the powerful force of the Blue Full Moon, and you get one of the most sacred nights of the century. If you miss out on this Halloween Full Moon, you'll have to wait until 2039 to experience it again.
If you want to know the exact time of the October Blue Moon according to your region or country, check out the Lunar Time and Date website. There you can find the information you need based on where you stand on the planet.
No matter where you are or what the weather, all beings benefit from the Blue Full Moon. Even if you can't see the Blue Full Moon, you can still feel the vibrations.
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.
The Blue Moon is a time when you are meant to do something extraordinary. It's all about expanding your horizons. That means breaking free from your comfort zone or routine to engage in an event or activity that you usually wouldn't foresee yourself doing. Now is the moment to break those mental, physical, and/or spiritual boundaries.
Only you know what needs to be done during the Blue Moon. An expansion of the self is yearning to happen, and you need to nourish your soul with growth and learning.
You can look deep into your subconscious mind and decide which areas of your life are in need of something fresh and new. In case you would like some ideas, here are the 12 Astrological houses and examples of how you can expand your experiences.
1st House of Self: This is all about about your personality and presentation in the world.

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.
It is ideal to gather your Moon Crystals even before the Full Moon happens so that you can properly prepare to 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.
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.
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!
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.
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 the metaphysics do practices under the lunar moon. Grab hold of your Moonstone, Selenite, or Labradorite ball and do Crystal Ball Gazing. You will receive a rush of visions and messages, even more than on an ordinary day.
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.
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!
