In our previous post, we mentioned that you could cleanse your crystals using the powers of the full and new moon, so we thought it would be helpful to provide you with the dates of such from now until the end of the year.
Please note that there are also specific crystals that excel during these times. At the time of a full moon, Moonstone and Selenite are super powerful. At the time of a new moon, it's all about Labradorite.
Full Moon: Friday 5th June
This full moon, otherwise known as the 'Strawberry Moon', is also a Lunar Eclipse. The moon will appear black because of the Earth's shadow.

New Moon: Sunday 21st June
