It's finally here! And this year's moon calendar is chocked full of some intense and transformational information starting right on January 1, 2018. There's no messing around, and that's the tone that 2018 is going to underscore all year.
Each monthly moon of the year offers a unique energy that influences our daily lives - like that delightful Harvest Moon that bounces between September and October each year. The moon's changing cycles affects us, and it also affects the crystals we cleanse and charge beneath its light.
You can download the full 2018 calendar for yourself, to help you navigate a crystal cleansing and charging schedule at home!
This year’s calendar outlines traditional lucky stones for each month, and also recommends stones to work with based on the changing monthly lunar energy. When the moon is 99% - 100% illuminated, you can snag a full moon charge and cleanse for your crystals. In the 2018 calendar, the moon's illumination is outlined each month, making it easy to know when to tuck your crystals beneath the moon's silvery glow.
Solstice and Equinoxes are also included for both hemispheres, along with Supermoon dates, lunar and solar eclipse dates (and where they're visible in the world), and when Mercury goes retrograde and direct.
When we reconnect to the moon, our daily rhythm changes. This is valuable to understand so you can seek insight into why you're feeling the things you are as the year progresses. I also find it helps me feel more connected to those around me, reminding me we are all experiencing similar things in different ways.
Some exciting insight for the 2018 year is the DOUBLE BLUE MOONS we will experience within the very first season. This hasn't happened since 1999, and won't happen again until 2037, so we won't come across this type of radical transformation and expansion for some time again. January will hold one of the Blue Moons of the year, and March will hold the second.
A Blue Moon is the rare occurrence where we experience two full moons in one month.
January will also bring two Supermoons and a lunar eclipse!
It's going to be a wild ride right out the door.
The two full moons in January changes the energy we typically find in the first month of the year. Instead of the usual Wolf Moon, the door is opened for the Quiet Moon on January 1 - 2, followed by the Blue Moon on January 31.
The 2018 Moon Calendar acts as a digital guide to help you understand the moon’s influence as it navigates through the months, and so you know which moon is charging and cleansing your crystals. In the downloadable calendar, the moon phases are also outlined, including first quarter, last quarter and new and full moons, which are equally important to follow for your personal self-care rituals.
Unique to this year will be a paper version of the calendar, available in limited quantities in December 2017. If you can't wait, and want to access the calendar immediately, the Digital Volume is your BFF.
