OK, time to do an updated lunar eclipse and crystals post for 2014 & just in time for our 1st eclipse in April. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love to ride our cosmic local Solar System energies. I also LOVE to layer various types of similar vibrational frequencies together for lovely harmony…and that, of course, includes crystals!
Big eclipses, Big letting go…Exciting stuffs!
What makes the upcoming eclipses really exciting is that most of these eclipses will be visible form North America (bit selfish, I know).

So the party gets started on April 15th for a spectacular midnight eclipse! As, I’ve mentioned before eclipse usually occur in pairs of lunar & solar. This year’s set is known as a lunar eclipse tetrad; a series of 4 consecutive real-deal full eclipses occurring about 6 months apart (some of these flowing into 2015). I say real-deal, b/c these aren’t partial eclipse but the FULL-ON ENERGY. So put your seat belts on. And…the really unique thing is that with this tetrad; all visible somewhere in the US. 
Upcoming Eclipses
Here’s what’s on tap for our 2014 eclipses (click on links to see NASA maps showing where on Mama Earth the eclipse will be visible):

For me, the Full Moon is a time to be grateful for what the last lunar cycle has brought about & to take a look at my plans & evaluate any necessary changes for the next cycle. Lunar Eclipses are a good energy to bring about change Crystals to Work with: moonstone, fluorite, selenite

  • 2014 Oct 08: Total Lunar Eclipse – same as above
  • 2014 Oct 23: Partial Solar Eclipse – In this type of solar eclipse, the Moon only partly covers the Sun as seen from Mama Earth. So, the energy from this event is the same as an Annular Solar Eclipse (see above)

For a little more of a science lesson on the eclipses & working with their energy please take a look at my older blog post here. I also explain in that post why I’m leery to work with Solar Eclipses. However, I ♥ to work with Lunar eclipse energy since it can make for some supremely special edition gem elixirs difficult to replicate!

And no worries if you can’t visibly view some or any of these eclipses due to where you are on Mama Earth at that time…it’s not necessary to SEE the eclipse for its energy to still affect you. :)
Here are just a few ways I like to work with the Lunar Eclipse and Crystals:

  • Concoct special Gem Elixir blends
  • Crystal Grids
  • Program a special quartz crystal
  • Put together a lunar energy crystal mojo kit

Are you planning on working with the Eclipse Energies of any sort? I’d all love to hear what you’re up to so please comment below. :)

Lunar Blessings!

Crystals + 2013 Eclipse Energies

Hibiscus Moon energy work 5 Comments

OK, time to do an updated eclipse post for 2013. I already let 1 lunar eclipse slip past us so time to get on it! And we can totally use crystals in tandem with these eclipse energies (I prefer to stay safe & just stick with the lunar energies on this as I’ll explain in a bit here).

We still have 4 upcoming eclipses in 2013 to look  forward to. Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I love to ride those cosmic Mama Earth energies & I also like to layer various types of energies together of similar frequency…enter the crystals!
So here’s the 2013 Upcoming Eclipse Tour Dates:

2013 May 10: Annular Solar Eclipse – This type of eclipse happens when the Moon is a wee bit closer to the Sun leaving a bright ring of light around the Moon (the corona). Solar eclipses can only appear during a new moon & in the day time. This means that you are working with new moon energy (this is said to be great for BIG cleansings, purging, ending things & letting go). Good time to clean out closets & such. This sort of eclipse has less amplitude than a Total Solar Eclipse. If you feel good about that then work with it & give it a go. Click on the link for a NASA map of where you need to be to see this event. Crystals to Work with: herkimer diamond, sunstone, citrine, stellar beam calcite

2013 May 25: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – much like a Partial Lunar Eclipse but has some unobservable differences (points of contact) & not too striking to look at, but the slight energy boost is there none the less. I view any sort of Lunar eclipse as a really powerful Full Moon! High amplitude, no doubt. For me, the Full Moon is a time to be grateful for what the last lunar cycle has brought about & to take a look at my plans & evaluate any necessary changes for the next cycle. Lunar Eclipses are a good energy to bring about change. (Click above for NASA maps) Crystals to Work with: moonstone, fluorite, selenite

2013 Oct 18: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – same as above

2013 Nov 03: Hybrid Solar Eclipse – this event is a cross between an Annual Solar Eclipse & a Total Solar Eclipse. This happens b/c the Moon’s shadow touches upon Earth’s surface at some points, but falls short others. Yeah, this is mega-powerful energy here! Lots of banishing energy. Again, I feel the energy is too loco for my liking so I just appreciate & notice.

If you’re on the East Coast of the US, you may have a view of a partial solar eclipse early Sunday morning. Go here to find out how it will look in your area or if you’ll be able to view it & what time.

Think of it…the Sun, the Moon & the Earth are in perfect alignment with each other. The energies are STACKED, Baby! (Click above for NASA map) Crystals to Work with: sunstone, citrine, pyrite, sulfur

And no worries if you can’t visibly view some or any of these eclipses…its not necessary for its energy to still be able to affect you. Which is great, b/c its very difficult to catch an eclipse, especially a Solar one! The effects of eclipse energy on us has even been scientifically tested. (Click on that only if you’re GEEKY!)

But we don’t need all that scientific mumbo-jumbo, do we? When you’re in-tune w/ Mama Earth you can just FEEEEL it. If you’re not feeling it…that may be because you need to get out there, barefoot on the Earth & get grounded & connected.

Just as I teach with crystals, any energy that is High Amplitude (meaning it carries a whopping lot of energy) can interfere with the dominant osciallary rate (average vibratory rate) of an object or being. So does an eclipse qualify as High Amp? I give that a big HELL YEAH!

With me so far?

Since I don’t feel confidant working with the super-HIGH magnitude energy of a Total Solar Eclipse (I don’t think I’ll ever be messing around with that) I pretty much leave that be & just honor & respect by watching from afar.

I do, however, like to work with Lunar eclipse energy since those can make for some supremely special edition potions difficult to replicate!

Here are just a few things I like to do/create for a Lunar Eclipse:

  • Concoct special Gem Elixir blends
  • Crystal Grids
  • Program a special crystal

Does an Eclipse Effect Energy?

You betchya!

Four eclipses on the horizon for 2012. Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I love to ride those Mother Earth energies like a Bonsai Pipeline! And I like to use the energies of crystals right along with it whenever I can.

Eclipses harbor powerful energy that intertwine with Mother Earth’s Grid (I explain more about this grid in my little book; Crystal Grids).

You don’t need to be able to visibly see an  eclipse for its energy to be able to affect you. And that’s a good thing too b/c its very difficult to catch an eclipse, especially a Solar one! But the effects of its energy on us has even been tested by many a scientist. Of course, they have yet to come to a decisive conclusion, but we don’t need no steeeeenkin’ scientific conclusion. We know! When you’re in-tune w/ Mother Earth you can just feel this stuffs. Right?

Just as I teach with crystals, if an energy is High Amplitude (meaning it carries a whopping lot of energy) it can mess with the base frequency of an object. I classify an eclipse as a high amp event which can leave an imprint in Mother Earth’s grid which can, in turn,  influence us. Make sense?

Since I don’t feel expert at working with energy on the magnitude of a Total Solar Eclipse (don’t know if I ever will) I don’t like to do too much messing around with it. I’m good with simply acknowledging & respecting it. 

I will work with Lunar eclipses & such when creating certain special Gem Elixir blends. Those make for some supremely special edition potions difficult to replicate!

So what’s on tap for 2012?

  • May 20: Annular Solar Eclipse– This eclipse happens when the Moon is a tad closer to the Sun leaving a bright ring of  Sun around the Moon.  Solar eclipses can only appear  during a new moon & in the day time, of course. This means that you are working with new moon energy (great for cleansing, purging, ending things & letting go). Good time to clean out closets & such. Less amplitude than a Total Solar Eclipse.

  • Jun 04: Partial Lunar Eclipse– I view Lunar eclipses as a really powerful Full Moon. Since this is a partial eclipse its less so, but a powerful Full Moon none the less. High amplitude, no doubt. For me, the Full Moon is a time to be grateful for what the last lunar cycle has brought about & to look to plans & changes for the next cycle. Lunar Eclipses are a good energy to bring about change. Any course corrections necessary for the next cycle? Just contemplating that. I no longer put my crystals out under Lunar Eclipse energy. I feel its just too wonky.  (Click here for NASA maps) Crystals to Work with: moonstone, fluorite
  • Nov 13: Total Solar Eclipse- this is  mega-powerful energy here! Whoa…lots of banishing energy. Personally, I feel the energy is too wild for my liking so I just appreciate it & notice. Think of it…the Sun, the Moon & the Earth are in perfect alignment. The energies are STACKED! Very powerful stuff and something that I don’t feel comfortable messing around with myself.  I’ll just stand back & watch thank you very much!

  • Nov 28: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse– this one is like a partial lunar eclipse but has some unobservable differences (points of contact) & not too striking to look at, but the slight energy difference is there none the less. Again, this is good energy to bring about change & to look for course-corrections. (Click here for NASA maps) This is a great opportunity to make some powerful gem elixirs too!! Crystals to Work with: moonstone, fluorite

Notice, the eclipses occur in pairs of solar with lunar? Balancing of energies. Just an interesting little tidbit.

So, how are you planning on working with the celestial energies? I’d love to hear about it, Crystal Hottie! Please share below!
