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. 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!

Mercury Retrograde & MY BOOK!

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, book, Crystal Healing, Crystals 4 Comments

So it’s the retrograde again. This time I’m looking at it as a time to renew, revamp and redo! And I truly am doing all those things. I’m getting reviews for my book so I can print them inside, I’m revamping my website and business model and I NEED to re-do something with my emotions for the last few days. This is so unlike me but I feel very unsettled. I’m not sure why, but I feel a bit scared with all I have going on, a bit uncertain perhaps. Some say its shifting Source energies. I tend to think its that. Whatever it is, I need to give it the boot! *why doesn’t blogger have spell-checker?!*

Thank you so much for all your feedback on my last post. I really took it all into consideration and am adjusting it. OK, so here’s my About the Author blurb (different from Back Cover Blurb):

About the Author
Hibiscus Moon has learned to channel her inner-geek then merge it with her serious obsession with crystals and stones, bringing her unique perspective to the world of crystal healing. As a National Board Certified Professional Science teacher, Hibiscus Moon delivers the science behind the metaphysical aspects of working with crystals. As a Certified Crystal Master and Registered Metaphysician, Hibiscus Moon speaks, teaches and writes about crystals and is the founder and director of The Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy and has a YouTube channel dedicated to crystal healing. She resides in Florida with her husband and kitty, Topaz, aka “Topaz Meow Meow”.

And here’s the first cover draft. I wasn’t too keen on the color spectrum for this since it doesn’t really have anything to do with the subject matter of Crystal Grids:

Comments on any of this are welcome and appreciated. OK, my real name is coming off of there b/c of my job as a science teacher. 14-year-olds can be nosey and mean. I have a pretty big online footprint that I don’t need them following. Plus its a tongue-twisting mouthful & most peeps know me as “Hibiscus Moon” (so much prettier too!). So, my online & author name will always be Hibiscus Moon. I am thinking of starting to use an alias name for all of it though. Or should I just leave it as Hibiscus Moon? This indecisiveness is very strange and alien for me too. Busting out the crystals to help me along!

Solar Eclipse, Summer Solstice & Much More!

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, Crystals, mermaids, Mother Earth, science 4 Comments

THere’s a blog I’ve recently fallen in love with and this link points to a particular post that does a great job explaining the power of a Solar Eclipse and how it acts as a sort of “micro-year” condensed in a very short period of time. Just a great post with a wealth of info.!

So many celestial and powerful events are coming up!

So first is the Summer solstice on June 21st at 7:28am EDT for the Northern Hemi, then a Partial Lunar Eclipse on June 26. Here’s NASA’s info and locations for that event. I will be eagerly watching. 🙂 This will all be followed by the grand finale of the Total Solar Eclipse on July 11!

Very powerful stuff and something that I don’t feel comfortable messing around with myself but I do and will have my pyrite and citrine around me from the Summer Solstice on through to the Solar eclipse. to attune my energies to these events. Here’s my YT vid that explains more if you haven’t seen it:

And lastly, you can catch Mercury in early June just before sunrise low in the Eastern sky. It’s never far from the Sun so its hard to catch a view of this little planet. Then there’s gorgeous Venus. Have you been catching it bright in the evening Western sky? It will be setting 3 hours after the Sun so its easy to view and should be the brightest object.

Crystal Blessings!
