The Fabulous Full Moon and Crystals

Under the cloak of darkness, when the night sky is adorned with its celestial splendor, there emerges a luminary so captivating, so enchanting, that it draws gazes skyward in awe and wonder. It is the full moon, a celestial beacon that has inspired poets, mystics, and dreamers for centuries with its ethereal glow and mysterious allure. But beyond its mesmerizing beauty lies a deeper connection—a connection with the Earth, with our souls, and with the magical realm of crystals. In this exploration, we embark on a journey into the realm of the full moon and crystals, delving into the mystical interplay between these two cosmic forces and uncovering the secrets they hold. Join us as we illuminate the night with the radiant energy of the fabulous full moon and the shimmering power of crystals.

Powerful Energy Force

The moon is at it’s most powerful during a full moon. Full moons have been said to intensify people’s emotions which is why it is good to have self awareness and be mindful of your actions during this time. 

The full moon is only visible for 2-3 nights during each ‘Full Moon’ phase and this is because of the sun illuminating the moon for all to see.

Full Moons are thought to be lucky and they are an ideal time to self reflect and manifest. During this time you can also release outdated thoughts and energies that contribute to emotional and physical stress. This is not a time to take on new projects or beginnings. 


Crystals charge when placed directly under a full moon. Some people choose to place crystals around their home others place on their body when meditating as a way of enhancing the benefits of the crystals on different chakras (energy centres.)

If you prefer you could wear a pendant on your person all the time with a wand like crystal and only take it off when you cleanse or charge. Check the properties of the crystal before getting showering with them on. Rose quartz can be immersed into water although it’s not advised to leave in water for a prolonged time.

Rose quartz is a good all rounder it opens your heart, promotes self acceptance & healing, restores harmony in relationships and attracts love & peace into your life. It encompasses the heart chakra and what could be more beneficial than love, compassion and forgiveness.

Full Moon Outdoor Adventure

Planning a night time adventure under a full moon sounds enchanting! Here are five items that could enhance your experience.

  1. Headlamp or Flashlight Even with the moonlight, having a headlamp or flashlight handy can be invaluable, especially for navigating darker areas or if the moonlight gets obscured by clouds.
  2. Camera or Smartphone Capture the magical moments of the moonlit landscape with a camera or smartphone. Full moons provide excellent opportunities for stunning night photography.
  3. Blanket or Mat Spread out a blanket or mat to sit or lie down comfortably and soak in the moonlight. It’s a peaceful way to connect with nature and enjoy the serene ambiance.
  4. Telescope or Binoculars Enhance your stargazing experience by bringing along a telescope or a good pair of binoculars. A full moon offers excellent visibility of lunar features and nearby celestial bodies.
  5. Snacks and Drinks Enjoying a night time picnic or snack under the full moon can be a delightful experience. Pack some favorite snacks and drinks to savor while basking in the moon’s glow.

Light several candles to create a sacred and atmospheric space for your ritual. You can place them in a circle around your ritual area or use them to represent the elements (earth, air, fire, water) depending on your spiritual tradition.


    Select crystals that resonate with the energy of the full moon, such as moonstone, selenite, clear quartz, or amethyst. Crystals can amplify your intentions and help you connect with the moon’s energy during your ritual.

    Incense or Sage

    Burn incense or smudge with sage to purify the space and set the intention for your ritual. The smoke can help cleanse negative energy and create a sense of clarity and focus.


    Consider offering symbolic items to the moon as a gesture of gratitude or intention. This could be flowers, herbs, fruits, or other gifts that hold personal significance or relate to the themes of your ritual.

    Journal or Paper

    Have a journal or piece of paper and pen ready to write down your intentions, reflections, or any insights that arise during the ritual. Writing can be a powerful way to anchor your thoughts and intentions, as well as track your progress over time.

      These items can help you create a sacred space and deepen your connection with the energy of the full moon during your ritual. Remember to approach your practice with sincerity, reverence, and an open heart.

      Colour Candle Guide

      Lighting a candle when meditating helps with the visualisation process. Candles are known to promote relaxation; but did you know that the colour of candles you use can also make a difference to what you are trying to manifest? 

      Monday- Saturday all have different candle colours that help promote different outcomes. It is useful to understand what you want to gain from the Full Moon Practice and the “CHOOSE YOUR CANDLE” guide below will give you some great ideas.

      Full Moon Inspirational Idea

      How about hosting a “Moonlit Poetry Night” under the full moon? Invite friends or community members to gather in a serene outdoor setting, such as a garden or park, illuminated by the moonlight. Each person can bring a piece of poetry or prose inspired by the moon to share with the group.

      Set up a cozy seating area with blankets, cushions, and perhaps some candles or lanterns to create an inviting atmosphere. Encourage participants to bring instruments if they play music, adding another layer of ambiance to the evening.

      Start the event with a brief meditation or reflection on the significance of the full moon, inviting everyone to connect with its energy and draw inspiration from its luminous presence.

      Then, take turns sharing poetry or passages that speak to the beauty, mystery, and symbolism of the moon. Encourage open discussion and reflection after each reading, allowing participants to share their thoughts, emotions, and interpretations.

      As the evening unfolds, you may find yourselves immersed in a rich tapestry of words, emotions, and shared experiences, deepening your connection with each other and with the celestial rhythms of the universe.

      After the readings, you can conclude the event with a simple ritual, such as a collective gratitude meditation or a closing circle where everyone shares a wish or intention to carry forward with them into the moon’s cycle.

      Cleansing Your Energy

      Cleaning Space – De-cluttering and tidying the space you will be using has many advantages. It will help you to relax and get your thoughts in order. Getting your physical environment in order is a priority and you will fully appreciate it when the time comes. 

      Emotional Space – We all need a bit of reset from time to time if not we can walk around with the weight of the world on our shoulders. To create the right emotional space you could focus yourself by using breathwork or meditation. Anything that helps you relax and unwind. Focusing on breathing makes you present in the moment.

      Take 10-15 minutes in a quiet space to just slow everything down, switch off the outside noise and try not to think about anything except your breathing. If you feel any areas of tension as you do this take a deep breath in and hold it for a few seconds (imagine that you breathing in healing energy and light) Then as exhale blow out all the aches and pains and any tension or stress.

      Full Moon Rituals


      Whether you chose mindfulness, transcendental or positive affirmations to repeat be sure to find something that resonates best with you. Be sure to find a quiet place without disruptions and make it ALL about you. The key to meditation is to explore what works best for you.

      Meditating with Crystals 

      We meditate with our chosen crystals while focusing on what we want. We can wear crystals, carry them on our person, hold them in our hand or place them in our surrounding area. Some people also place them on their energy centres and lay down to meditate. The energy centres (chakras) of the body can become underactive or overactive and when this happens it leads to different imbalances in the body that affect us in different ways as the energy is not flowing properly.

        I’ll be keeping a close eye for new stock of the rose quartz pendant with the sliver rose wrapped round it. I have some crystals, as well as their various healing powers, I find that when I’m feeling over sensory, overwhelmed or having a panic attack, having them in my hand really helps, even and this might sound odd but rubbing them across my lips and feeling how cool and smooth they feel, taking note with my fingers the shapes they are formed into, any edges or cracks, if I’m needing to distract myself from the urge to self harm, I find rectangle breathing and just pressing my thumb on top of the sharpish bits of my amethyst helps, it’s enough to inflict some pressure but to never harm, nor pierce my thumb. Opalite which although I know is synthetic, I always find holding up to the sunlight through the window brings me calm and happiness I just think it looks so pretty that pearlescent blueish colour. I also am one to pick up random stones off the floor if I think they look interesting or they catch my eye lol! Thank you for this article, I love the moon and it’s so fascinating how it’s phases can affect us. It also during a full moon quite often us mums will notice an increase in seizures in our dravet children and I’ve seen parents of children with other epileptic syndromes say the same. On the flip side of that if we went on to mention seizures and aromatherapy, frankincense oil has been used and in a lot of journeys I have seen and also read about during research has decreased seizure activity in the less severe types of epilepsy. *I will always advocate for anyone to continue medications unless told otherwise/have discussed at length with your child’s neurologist*.But the point I was wanting to make is that there’s is a whole world of healing (or partial healing alongside other treatments, therapies/ other things in each persons regimen), at our fingertips that we have no idea about until we delve into the world of holistic therapies, healing foods or someone brings it to our attention nowadays. Nature is powerful, and we see that in everyday news, life, tv, books, through destruction, catastrophe, disasters, illnesses, but also if we all took a little extra time to really, truly FEEL what nature can do for us mentally and physically when we are low also, and SEE how amazing the sky looks, how incredible the rain smells after a thunderstorm in the summer, notice how pretty that tree looks this week now it’s covered in blossom, and notice that now you’re smiling because of that, we would absolutely undoubtedly and perhaps for many people, for the first time r really truly feel that power. Small changes we can make to heal ourselves from the inside outwards, begin with our minds awakening to us wanting and longing to feel better. Or for myself personally that was a huge awakening for me with regards to fuelling my body in the correct way, nutrition wise, healing foods, foods that soothe the bladder for my fowlers syndrome. I’ve not long been through a huge phase of trying all sorts of supplements from piping rock to try and make myself feel better or sleep better, but ultimately I was clutching at straws! Anyway, what an absolute waffle. 😩😅 but yes, thank you for another wonderful article, and your guidance and wisdom 😌💝
