Crystal Moon Astrology
Crystal Moon Astrology is growing in popularity for very good reason. It offers everyone an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand connection to the Cosmos and its energy. It provides easy-to-follow guidance for your individual spirit. And you don't need complex birth charts, you don't need to pay astrologers, you don't need everyone else's standard horoscope.
All you need is a simple understanding of two facts:
- The Moon when it is over the horizon has about 1 million times more cosmic, astrological influence on your spirit than all the other stars and planets in their orbits and houses. You see it is like a searchlight in your front yard pointing at your window. Its light and influence dwarf some candles moving around in China.
- You get to "start over" every year. In Moon Astrology, yes the Moon was somewhere in the heavens when you were born. And that colored your first year. But the Earth orbits the Sun and starts a new orbit each year. And so do you. You grow, develop, think, change, and evolve. So, in Moon Astrology it matters where the Moon is ON YOUR BIRTHDAY each year. You start a new year, a new orbit of the Sun, and as you change, the influences you make on others, and the influences of the Universe on you change.
That's it. You are a Moon Astrologer. Now all you need is some reference guide as to how the Moon moves in the heavens and what that means for you. Here you go.
The Mansions of the Moon
What are the Mansions of the Moon?
The Mansions of the Moon are the 28 divisions of the Zodiac that the Moon visits on her approximately monthly journey around the Earth. Now, you may well know the 12 zodiac signs like Aries and Gemini. These are the 12 divisions of the zodiac. The Sun takes a year to cycle through all 12 signs. The Moon takes only about 28 days.
Long ago in India, the astrologers determined that the zodiac could be divided by 28 as easily as 12. So they created the 28 divisions and called them the Lunar Mansions or the Mansions of the Moon. They did this because it made it much easier to track the Moon. Instead of saying it was half the way through Aries, they could say it was in the Second Mansion.
Why do the Mansions of the Moon Matter?
The Mansions of the Moon matter to us because according to most ancient astrology and magic books such as the Picatrix, the position of the Moon tells us the most auspicious time to make magical talismans, amulets, magic potions. The travels of the Moon in the zodiac through the Mansions of the Moon also tell us when it is advantageous to undergo certain activities and when certain crystals have the most energy. They also set the energy for our year. Knowing what Mansion the Moon is transiting on our birthday tells us what energy we have been given for the coming year. Powerful knowledge.
Therefore, understanding the 28 Mansions of the Moon and knowing which Mansion the Moon the Moon visited on our last birthday, and which one it is currently visiting tells us how best to use our crystals and magic.
The descriptions of the Mansions in earlier texts use the ancient Arabic names and oﬀer the advice that was aimed at the princes of ancient India. So, you will find information such as a particular mansion is named something like "Al-Thuraiya" and the ancient translations oﬀer advice such as, "when the moon is in this Mansion, kings may begin to war and to lay sieges and pursue enemies and malefactors." You can use such information if it works better for you. However, there is a much better way.
As each generation adapts the wisdom of the ancients, that wisdom is applied to the times. Nowadays, the Mansions have been updated in name to reflect the elemental energy (fire, water, air, and earth) of the section of the zodiac in which they reside. This approach offers you a much clearer understanding of the energy you can expect from the Moon each day.
For example, when the Moon is in the first few Mansions which are part of the area of the sky we know as Aries, the Mansions have the fire energy of Aries and have such names as the Mansion of the Sacred Flame and the Mansion of the Hearth. Another example, when the Moon is in Mansions that are part of the zodiac we call Libra. The air energy of that part of the sky is reflected in the Mansion’s names and energy such as the Mansion of Clouds and the Mansion of Wings.
Astrology, like all science, must keep up with the times in order to stay relevant and useful to each generation. If we stay true to the basic elements that rule the zodiac and interpret the Moon’s travel accordingly we find using the Mansions of the Moon to time our crystal use makes those crystals much more powerful and effective.
