How to Align With Planetary Energies: Venus and the Moon

We are all connected to the universe. Every molecule in our body was, at some point, part of something else. Matter and energy cannot be destroyed, but they can transform into something new. We also can do this by using the energy of the universe to help us transform into something new, or help us to change something of ourselves, like a negative aspect, into something positive.

In my last article I talked about the energies of the Sun and Mercury. In this article, I want to discuss Venus and the Moon.




Venus has been known for centuries as the goddess of love and beauty. The energies of this planet can help you connect and bring harmony and attraction into your life. Use the energy of Venus to help you understand and learn behaviours that will attract a harmonious atmosphere. Venus can help to be more charismatic with your words or actions, or you can utilize it on an internal level and bring balance to your personal energy.

Carry small trinkets that remind you of harmony and balance.

Crystals Associated with Venus:

Lodestones, sodalite, kunzite, turquoise, and blue tourmaline. Watermelon tourmaline is said to balance the projective and receptive personal energies within our bodies.

Venus is associated with the forth or heart Chakra



The Moon

Next to the sun, the moon is the only other celestial body that affects u on a daily basis. The tides are ruled by the moon, and as our bodies are 70 percent water it would be understand able if the moon’s pull affects us in the same way. The moon governs our emotions and our emotional state. Use the moon’s energies to connect with the feminine side of ourselves, our emotional, nurturing side that is associated with the female gender.

Crystals associated with the Moon:

Moonstone, chalcedony, blue and smoky quartz, and sapphire.

The moon is associated with the seventh or Crown Chakra.

If you wish to enhance it even more, there are certain times of the day that are best suited for each planet. It’s different for each part of the world, so I have included a link to the chart that I use to determine the planetary hour. You can edit the city, country and time to your specific area.
