On October 8, a new moon will rise in the sky, and will offer all zodiac signs all a much needed opportunity to reset and clean the slate. As we get into the thick of Libra season, we might notice that our lives feel fuller, more social, and with less down time. While this might be a nice distraction from the cooling temperatures, many of us could use a bit of a break from the all the fun — some "me time" if you will. The new moon is always a good time to hit the pause button and think about what you really want to get out of the lunar cycle ahead. A great way to harness your energy on the new moon and take it with you throughout the rest of the cycle is to get a hold of some crystals. Certain crystals for the October new moon might better than others, so Bustle talked to astrologer Lisa Stardust and psychic medium and crystal sorceress, Aerinn Kolfage about what kinds of crystals we should reach for during this time.
According to Stardust, "the full moon is asking us to change and transform," and while it can be hard to work on yourself, "it’s essential to shed the past and become the person we want to be.” In order to do this, Stardust of course suggests the help of crystals. While the belief is that all crystals hold healing powers, certain crystal are going to be more relevant to us during this time than others, so it's important to be aware of what they each have to offer. Here are the crystals you'll want to keep close to you on October 8 for the new moon, and also throughout the rest of the lunar cycle.
