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).[caption id="attachment_10175" align="aligncenter" width="548"] Solar eclipse during totality.

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[caption id="attachment_7607" align="alignleft" width="400"] citrine druse[/caption]
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[caption id="attachment_3212" align="aligncenter" width="400"] moonstone[/caption]
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
Are you planning on working with the celestial energies? We’d all love to hear what you’re up to so please comment below. 🙂
Crystal Blessings, Lima Bean!
