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. Click here for a NASA map of where you need to be to see this event. Crystals to Work with: herkimer diamond & citrine, stellar beam calcite
- 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! (Click here for NASA map)

- 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!
