What is a Full Moon?

A Full Moon is a phase when the moon looks like a round glowing circle from our perspective on Earth. As the Earth travels between the sun and the moon, the light side of the moon faces us. This happens once a month, or 29.53 days to be precise.

What is a New Moon?

A New Moon is when we see the dark side of the moon from earth. The moon looks like a black outline in the sky. It happens every 29.53 days and is considered the start of the moon phase. The Full Moon follows the New Moon 14.765 days later.

What is a Lunar Eclipse?

A Lunar Eclipse is when the earth travels between the moon and sun. The shadow of the earth makes the moon hard to see.

When part of the Moon is blocked, it's called a penumbral Lunar Eclipse. This happens 2 to 5 times a year.

When the entire Moon is blocked, it's a Total Eclipse. This is more rare, happening once every 2 and a half years. A Total Penumbral Lunar Eclipse is even more rare, occurring 1 to 9 times every 100 years.

What is the spiritual meaning of a Full Moon?

The spiritual meaning of the Full Moon is about keeping your energy in motion, just as it's meant to be.

The Full Moon empowers your soul to make a positive change. The Full Moon spotlights negative energy and unresolved issues that have been lurking in your life. You can see more clearly which people, events, or energies no longer benefit you. Then, you can make the decision to let them go.

During the Full Moon, you must release unwanted elements.

Since the Full Moon event happens every month (sometimes twice a month), you can continuously cleanse and release. Leave behind the past and start fresh. Stop getting stuck in the same old pattern.

What is the spiritual meaning of a New Moon?

The New Moon is the opposite of a Full Moon. It is what happens between two Full Moons. During this lunar cycle, the dark side of the moon is turned to earth. The light is blocked out and the moon is almost invisible to you. 

Whereas in the Full Moon you release unwanted energy, in the New Moon you build something fresh and new.

What have you been meaning to manifest? What have you been dreaming of these days? The New Moon is an opportunity to make your thoughts a reality. It's an excellent time to use your charged Moonstones and practice life-enhancing Moonstone Affirmations.

What is the spiritual meaning of a Lunar Eclipse?

The Lunar Eclipse over the Full Moon enhances the energy of new beginnings. It happens at the same time as the Full Moon but adds extra power.

In a Lunar Eclipse, you release bigger and more significant things than you would during a typical Full Moon.

Some abrupt changes may include a loss or gain of a job, a family member, or a large sum of money. It might be a change in your relationship status, new information about your health, a spiritual transformation, etc. 

During the Lunar Eclipse, a major transformation is upon you.

    What is moon jewelry?

    When you wear moon jewelry, you are forever blessed by the magical light of Moon Goddesses Luna and Selene.

    Satin Crystals' handmade moon jewelry is designed to maximize your vibrational benefits. These pieces are made specifically for your moon-related practices.

    When it's time to harness the power of Full Moons, New Moons, Supermoons, and Lunar Eclipses, don't show up to the celebration empty-handed. Moon jewelry is ideal for all lunar events.

    Why is Moonstone important for the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse?

    Moonstone is the specific crystal that fully aligns with the energy of the moon. Whereas most stones are charged in the sun, Moonstone gets its power from the moonlight. That means its energies are more feminine, intuitive, psychic, calm, and healing.

    Moonstone is a stone of New Beginnings. When you use this crystal through all the new beginnings mentioned above, you are aligning yourself for success.

    Transitions are hard. Change doesn't always mean things will get better. If you don't put the right effort and intention toward the transition, changes could be disastrous.

    Moonstone makes change easier and keeps you on the right track to a positive outcome. Learn about the ways Moonstone can benefit you with its metaphysical healing properties.

      How do I charge Moonstone in the Full Moon, New Moon, and Lunar Eclipse?

      Before you charge your stones, you want to clear them of previously infused energy. See Crystal Care Instructions on how to do this and make sure you do it at least a day or two ahead of time.

      On the morning of the Full Moon, New Moon, or Lunar Eclipse, place your stones in the windowsill or garden. Leave them there the following night so they can be supercharged with the superpowers of the moon.

      Once they have been charged, you can program your crystals with the intentions you desire. 

      Can I charge other stones in the Full Moon, New Moon, and Lunar Eclipse?

      Most crystals like Quartz, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and Tourmaline are charged by sunlight. The sun infuses them with life force and active energy. To charge them under the sun, you can place them on the windowsill during the day. 

      However, you might decide to charge them under moonlight sometimes. Moonlight charging fills your crystals with soothing energy and psychic intention. If you want a crystal to help you with psychic development, intuitive abilities, and Third Eye chakra healing work, the moon is known to enhance these powers.

      How does a Full Moon affect me?

      Since the Full Moon is a time of letting go, some people may feel relieved, happy, and free. Others may feel jittery, scared, or at loss. Your feelings can change with each cycle, depending on what is happening in your life and what exactly you are letting go of for the month.

      This may involve soul-searching discomfort, but remember that letting go of that which no longer serves you open the gateway to bigger and better things.
