Let’s talk about crystals we can use to work with moon energy. Whether it be for the full moon, new moon or any phase of the moon.
I feel that when you’re working with different phases of the moon, it’s not so much about the specific crystals that you choose to work with, because there are several different ones, but more about your intention of working with that particular moon phase.
There are several crystals that have vibrational frequencies that align with the moon in general, no matter what phase the moon is in at that particular time. Which is great b/c it makes uncomplicated work of it.
Again, it doesn’t matter whether it’s full moon or new moon, what I feel is most important is that you be very clear on what your intentions are & that you align them with that particular phase of the moon.
Here’s a very general summary of those energies…
Full Moon Energy
- It’s a time when you reap what you’ve sown.
- It’s when you’re grateful for whatever lessons you’ve learned in last moon’s cycle, or for whatever intentions and seeds that you planted that actually came to fruition.
- It’s about completion.
- Yang energy.
New Moon Energy
- A time to plant seeds and a time of new beginnings.
- Starting and growing something new.
- Great time to set intentions.
- Yin energy.
** If you’d like to learn more about setting intentions with new moon energy, I created an earlier blog post on setting intentions at the New Moon over here. And if you’d like some tips on working with the Full Moon & Your Crystals head over here. **
The crystals I’m recommending here resonate very strongly with moon energy at all phases.
My Crystal Recommendations for working with Moon Energy
Selenite is a beautiful crystal that actually has a sort of iridescence or sheen to it that reminds us very much of the moon. It’s got that tell-tale moon beam glow.
Selenite embodies goddess energy, and it’s a crystal that allows us to more easily communicate with our higher selves.
Selenite often comes in many different forms. It can be polished, like a heart or a palm stone, or shaped into a wand. Sometimes you will see the natural selenite towers, which come in a range of sizes from small to large.
You may have even heard about this beautiful, magical selenite crystal cave in Mexico. Have you heard of it? It’s called the Cave of Giants, where these huge selenite, (actually, gypsum; gypsum is selenite) humongous crystals have grown.
It’s not a place we can visit. No, not a place we can go. Too dangerous. It’s very difficult for even the geologists to go down there, but it’s just so magical to even think about and even know that a place like that exists on mama earth! Ya know?
It’s like the fortress of solitude that Superman went to while growing up and he learned all his stuff and all his knowledge and connected with his higher self. 😉
The next crystal for working with moon energy may come as no surprise to you, it’s moonstone. I have a moonstone, that I show you in the video, that just so happens to be carved into a sphere, so it looks very much like Luna herself.
It doesn’t need to be white moonstone, it can be any kind of moonstone, there’s even peach or black moonstone.
Some of them will have a flashy iridescence to them that you can see in certain light which is quite beautiful.[caption id="attachment_3212" align="aligncenter" width="600"] moonstone tumbled stones[/caption]
Any kind of moonstone is great for working with lunar energy at any moon phase.
It’s all about goddess and feminine energy. Makes sense b/c the moon itself is actually known to embody that goddess feminine energy.
Moonstone is also great for allowing you to more efficiently tap into your intuition.
It’s also about mystery. So, if you’re looking to align with that while working with certain lunar cycles, then you’ll want to work with moonstone.
Labradorite is another great choice to work with moon energy. It’s actually closely related to moonstone and it has that similar flash; a blue flash that you get in certain light, that iridescent quality again.
Labradorite is all about tapping into magic. Plus it’s also quite protective. If you’re feeling like you need some protective vibrational frequencies during a certain phase of the moon, then go ahead and try working with labradorite.

And another stone that we can work with to more closely align ourselves with that type of lunar energy is opal.
Opal allows us to align with that water energy so it’s also about purification.
Any type of true authentic opal will do, it doesn’t need to be white precious opal either. There are many different kinds.
Just don’t reach for opalite as a replacement, b/c that is a man-made “stone” & will not deliver the same kind of energy at all (which I talk about in this blog post.).
Well, I hope you like my picks for working with moon energy, Crystal Hottie!
Do you have certain stones you like to use for the waning / new moon & during the waxing / full moon? Are your go-to stones included in my list?
I’d love to hear about the crystal connections you’ve made @ different moon phases. Share with us in the comments below!
