I’m looking forward to attending the first Annual Vancouver Gem and Mineral Show today. Somehow it seems a perfect activity for the new moon… surrounding myself with Earth’s bounty of gemstones, minerals and crystals! Lots of energy!!!!
Maybe I’ll find some lovely new stones to work with (some of you may know that I am an amateur lapidarist) for shaping into jewelry or sacred tools… Or maybe I’ll find some additions for my collection of crystals for healing and for sacred ceremonies, such as today’s New Moon Ritual.
For tonight’s new moon ritual, I plan to use some stones that are aligned with fire energy of Leo and stones associated with the New Moon.
Fire Energy Stones
These stones are typically fire-coloured (e.g. red, orange, yellow-orange) but can also be black, such as Apache Tears which are a volcanic obsidian. Some stones you can use for fire energy include Amber, Apache Tears, Carnelian, Citrine, Fire Agate, Fire Opal, Garnet, Obsidian, Red Calcite, Red Jasper, Red Tourmaline, Ruby and Volcanic Black Salt (natural).
New Moon Energy Stones
Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy has some great suggestions for stones bringing in the New Moon energy:
- staurolite for physical body cleansing
- halite (aka Rock Salt) or clear quartz for energetic cleansing
- tourmalinated quartz for clear thought
- moonstone for tapping into lunar energies
