Like the Moon, you and everything around you – children, pets, plants and, of course, crystals – will become more dynamic and charged as the Moon increases. This is especially noticeable with moonstones and topaz. Then, as the Moon wanes, everything loses energy and enthusiasm. It’s the spirit and body’s way of telling you to slow down and regenerate. I am convinced that a great deal of the stress, premenstrual tension and irritability that we all suffer is because we are running counter to those energies. Of course, you can’t ring into work and say that you are not coming in because the Moon is seriously waning, but you can cut down on non-essential tasks.
