Eclipses deal with shadow energy and truth. Secrets that others are keeping from you may be revealed. Secrets that you’re keeping from others may also be revealed. It’s a good time to be honest with yourself (and others) before the Universe forces you to.
Many crystal workers believe you should not clean or charge crystals during an eclipse. I believe eclipse energy can be effective to work with if you are trying to bring about change, wipe out past programming, and/or start over on a project or soul journey. It’s a good time for you and your crystals to relax and reflect. If you want to work with shadow energy – which can be very enlightening – I believe you can pick a crystal and program it with eclipse energy during the new moon to help you understand yourself better. Then at the full moon, you can release that shadow energy and be done with it.
Because of the chaos of eclipses, effective crystals to work with include Moldavite, Tektite, and Labradorite. I also find heavy metals, such as gold, copper, and pyrite to be grounding and protective during this time, and they keep prosperity and abundance flowing into our lives when we may feel a little unsupported.
To help strengthen and protect your third eye and psychic abilities, I recommend Amethyst and Carnelian.
Of course, any time we’re dealing with the sun and the moon, Sunstone and Moonstone are great choices as well.
Do you have a favorite crystal to use at eclipse time?
