My granddaughter and I collect crystals — call them rocks, colorful decorations or healing crystals — many people believe that different crystals have metaphysical powers.
For example a blue lace agate is said to be a calming stone that brings you grace and tranquility. According to “That Crystal Site” this is a good stone to carry with you if you are going to do some public speaking,
The purple amethyst also is a calming stone that is said to protect the user from negative energy.
So what does this have to do with the full moon?
People who use crystals for their healing powers often wait for thunderstorms or the full moon to charge their crystals.
To most this may sound a bit “crazy” but true believers swear that heightening the metaphysical powers of their crystals by the natural elements (lightening, moonlight, water, earth) really works. For details click HERE.
Tonight’s (Saturday, Aug. 9) waxing moon may give you the results you desire. Set the crystals out in the waxing moon for increase and new beginnings.
This month’s full moon, which will be a Supermoon visible on Sunday night, appears larger than usual because it is the closest it will be all year. So what better time to put your crystals out for nice strong charge.
In a story on the NASA website, Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory said most reports of giant Moons this summer will be illusory.
According to Chester, “The illusion occurs when the Moon is near the horizon. For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects. When the Moon illusion amplifies a perigee Moon, the swollen orb rising in the east at sunset can seem super indeed.”
Personally, I have never seen a “Supermoon” like the one on March 19, 2011 and I’m disappointed when the word supermoon is used and doesn’t deliver. But the best time to view the enormity of tomorrow’s full moon will be just as it rises over the horizon (What a perfect time to be on Cadillac Mountain or at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in Maine).
Do you do anything special during the full moon?
