Crystals for the Solar Eclipse in the Southern Hemisphere 20th April 2023

Witnessing a Total Solar Eclipse is an experience like no other. In 2012, I had the privilege of viewing totality when one crossed Far North Queensland and I attended an Eclipse Festival, dedicated to viewing this rare event. 

The experience of witnessing it was hard to explain - but I distinctly remember the time around totality. The eerie cold that you could feel as the warmth of the sun disappeared, and the sky appeared as it does at a sunset with a golden horizon fading up to blue... but 360 degrees instead of just in the West. The birds all start singing as they do at dusk, and there was an instinctive fear of death as the Light disappeared. In those moments around totality, I experienced immense shifting emotions and energy through my body, and could feel strongly things dislodging from my cells and meridians, and I experienced a strong energy release.

On Friday April 20th, a Full Solar Eclipse will occur, visible from parts of Australia. (You can learn more details about the path of the Eclipse and visibility here). Eclipsed hold great spiritual significance, as they mark a time of profound transformation and new beginnings. 

In astrology, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, temporarily blocking out the sun's light. This event is said to represent a time of darkness, introspection, and inner growth.

In Indigenous Australian culture, eclipses were often seen as a time of great change and transformation. Many communities believed that during an eclipse, the sun and moon were temporarily at war, and that this conflict had the power to affect the natural world and the lives of individuals.

For those who are spiritually attuned, this eclipse offers an opportunity to tap into the energy of transformation and use it to catalyse personal growth and positive change. It is a time to reflect on the past and release anything that is no longer serving us, while also setting intentions for the future and planting seeds for new beginnings.

To make the most of this powerful energy, it is important to take time for introspection and self-care. This may involve meditation, journaling, or spending time in nature. It is also important to be mindful of the people and energies you surround yourself with during this time, as their influence can have a profound impact on your own growth and transformation.

In conclusion, the spiritual significance of the solar eclipse in Australia on April 20th cannot be overstated. It is a powerful time for transformation and new beginnings, and those who are attuned to its energy can use it to catalyse profound personal growth and positive change. By taking time for introspection and self-care, setting clear intentions, and being mindful of the energies around us, we can make the most of this transformative energy and emerge stronger and more aligned with our true purpose.

There are several crystals that can be used to harness the energy of the solar eclipse and support personal growth and transformation. Here are a few of our suggestions:

Clear Quartz: Known as the "master healer," clear quartz can be used to amplify the energy of the eclipse and support spiritual growth and transformation. It can also help to clarify your intentions and goals.

Amethyst: This crystal is known for its calming and grounding energy, which can be especially helpful during times of intense transformation. It can also help to enhance intuition and spiritual awareness.

Smoky Quartz: This crystal is associated with grounding and protection, making it an ideal choice for those who are working on releasing negative energy or patterns during the eclipse.

Black Tourmaline: Another crystal associated with protection, black tourmaline can be used to shield your energy field and protect against negative influences during the eclipse.

Carnelian: This crystal is associated with creativity, courage, and self-confidence. It can be used to support new beginnings and encourage the manifestation of your goals and desires.

Labradorite: Known as the stone of transformation, labradorite can help to facilitate spiritual growth and personal evolution during the eclipse. It can also help to enhance intuition and psychic abilities.

Sunstone: Is a beautiful and powerful crystal that can be a valuable tool for those who are looking to cultivate positivity, creativity, and personal power in their lives.

Moonstone: Is believed to be a stone of intuition, inner growth, and emotional healing, making it a popular choice for those who are looking to connect with their intuition and emotions.

And then, there is "Eclipse stone", a combination of Sunstone AND Moonstone! 

Eclipse Stone: The combination of sunstone and moonstone can create a harmonious energy that supports personal growth and spiritual development.

Which is the right crystal for me to work with during the Eclipse?!

Choosing to work with crystals during an eclipse can be a powerful way to consciously work with the release and spiritual transformation that may occur. You may want to see which crystals you are intuitively drawn to to support this process as there is no one "right" crystal to work with - the one you are drawn to will be the "right one"! The crystals we have outlined are generally supportive, but you may also find others are what you need right now, so above all else, trust your own intuitive wisdom!
