The Waxing Crescent Moon

After a New Moon we shift into the waxing phase of the Moon. As the Moon is growing in the sky, it’s time for us to grow too and to use the increasing energy to focus on your dreams and desires.

During a Waxing Crescent Moon, the Sun and the Moon start to part ways, beginning on their individual journeys through the Zodiac. As the Moon moves further away from the Sun, we can see more and more of the Moon being illuminated each night.

If you have planted a “seed” of intention under the New Moon energy, the week following is all about visualisation and dreaming. Imagining that seed as a fully grown flower, how it will look, what colour it will be and how it will smell.

It’s the same with your intentions, spend time bringing a vision of your manifestations into the here and now. Feel it. See it. Know that it is already planted and will soon grow into something beautiful.

The important thing to remember here is that we are only visualising the end result, not worrying about the steps it will take to get there. All we need to do is know what the destination is, the journey is the Universe’s job to take care of.

Crystals for the Waxing Crescent Moon

Crystals to use for the Waxing Crescent Moon

My favourite crystal to work with during the Waxing Crescent Moon is Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz is often known as the master healer, and amplifies the energy of all other crystals, so it's great to work with as we visualise our intentions coming true.
