In our previous post, we mentioned that you could cleanse your crystals using the powers of the full moon 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.
New Moon: 28th January
Full Moon: 13th January
January's full moon is also known as the 'Wolf Moon'. Another fitting name for this full Moon is the 'Center Moon'. Used by the Assiniboine people, it refers to the idea that this Moon roughly marks the middle of the winter season.
New Moon: 11th February
Full Moon: 27th February
The full moon of February is often called the 'Snow Moon'. The explanation behind February’s full Moon name is a fairly straightforward one: it’s known as the 'Snow Moon' due to the typically heavy snowfall that occurs in February.
New Moon: 13th March
Full Moon: 28th March
March’s full Moon goes by the name 'Worm Moon' which was originally thought to refer to the earthworms that appear as the soil warms in spring. This invites robins and other birds to feed—a true sign of spring!
New Moon: 12th April
Full Moon: 27th April
Traditionally called the Pink Moon, April's full moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of a certain wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata—commonly called creeping phlox or moss phlox—which also went by the name “moss pink.”
New Moon: 11th May
Full Moon: 26th May
May's full moon is often referred to as the 'Flower Moon' because flowers spring forth across North America in abundance this month!
New Moon: 10th June
Full Moon: 24th June
June's full moon, otherwise known as the 'Strawberry Moon', is also a Lunar Eclipse. The moon will appear black because of the Earth's shadow. The Strawberry Moon encourages you to reap the benefits of what you planted in the spring - letting go of the workload mentally and making way for a new sense of fun and relaxation.
New Moon: 10th July
Full Moon: 24th July
July's full moon can otherwise be known as the 'Buck Moon'. It is also called the 'Full Thunder Moon' because thunderstorms are most frequent at this time of year.
New Moon: 8th August
Full Moon: 22nd August
August's full moon is often referred to as the 'Sturgeon Moon'. A sturgeon is a large fish that was most readily caught during this month. Unlike the fish, the Sturgeon Moon appears reddish through any sultry haze as it rises.
New Moon: 7th September
Full Moon: 21st September
September's full moon can otherwise be known as the 'Full Corn Moon'. The Full Corn Moon traditionally marked when corn was ready for harvesting. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October.
New Moon: 6th October
Full Moon: 20th October
October's full moon is often referred to as the 'Hunters Moon'. At this time of year, the leaves fall from trees, the deer are fattened, and in the past, it was commonplace to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead. Because the fields were freshly harvested, hunters could easily see fox and other animals that come out to glean from the fallen grains.
New Moon: 4th November
Full Moon: 19th November
November's full moon can otherwise be known as the 'Beaver Moon'. It's sometimes also referred to as the 'Frosty Moon'. It's time to begin actively preparing for winter.
New Moon: 4th December
Full Moon: 19th December
December's full moon is often referred to as the 'Cold Moon'. During December, the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest.
