Moon Mandala Art and Jewelry
Moon mandala art and jewelry are a great form of self-expression. Jewelry and art can include all phases of the moon and any combination of colors. Half-moon mandalas and crescent-moon mandalas make lovely earrings and necklaces. They can be worn to support a goal or phase that you may be going through like a time of new beginnings or a desire to let go of the past.
Mandalas are meditation aids. Moon mandala art and jewelry can help you reach a meditative state and help guide your focus in a particular direction. If you are focusing letting go of an old relationship or issues, go with a dark shaded full moon. When you are meditating on a new beginning, use a bright white full moon.
Moon mandalas in various colors will assist with clearing and balancing your chakras during meditation, as will moon mandala jewelry made with certain crystals.
- Violet and white help clear and balance the crown chakra, which is located on the top of your head. Moon Mandala earrings made with ametrine or sugilite work well in this area.
- Purple and indigo work with the Third Eye Chakra. Earrings made with amethyst or tanzanite are ideal for working with this chakra.
- Blue is the color for the throat chakra. Earrings or a necklace made with lapis lazuli or blue lace agate will help clear and balance this chakra.
A moon mandala tapestry adds beauty to the room and serves as a focal point for meditation. Many of them are sun/moon mandalas but a tapestry depicting just the moon or the moon in different phases can be found.
Moon Mandala Coloring
Moon mandala coloring is highly therapeutic and can be fun. It is a great way to express yourself in a creative way. Coloring pages are available on-line but, if you have a compass or even a small drinking glass, you can easily make your own coloring pages. The main thing with moon mandala patterns is circles so really anything that you can use to make an image of a moon by tracing a circle will work. If you want half or crescent moons, just slide the circular object over slightly and draw another line.
Get creative with colors and include other elements in the images. Use different moon phases and/or include your Native American moon sign.
Moon Mandala Tattoos
Moon mandala tattoos can be a fairly basic design or as individual as you are. The patterns can be as intricate or simple as you like. Moon mandala tattoos are often designed to reflect your spiritual or religious beliefs. All mandala tattoos generally go best on a large, flat part of the body like the back or chest. Moon mandala tattoos, however, especially crescent- or half-moon mandala images, can be put anywhere. Larger full-moon mandalas would have to wrap around the sides of an arm or leg while smaller full-moon mandalas look good on a shoulder or upper part of the arm or leg.
