The Syrup

Luna in Libra Simple Syrup

Energetic Alignment: Love, Peace, Psychic Abilities

Libra asks us to reflect on our aesthetic, on love and self care, on our relationships – with others, ourselves, and the world. How can you live in better alignment at this time? What passions and projects of your deserve more attention at this time? 

This syrup combines the lunar and libra associations, for peace, love, and psychic abilities through the use of Vanilla, rosemary, and rose. This powerful trio of ingredients will render this syrup a powerful addition to your Luna in Libra concoctions for insight, calm, and balance, even possibly make a just as wonderful dessert topping or even in coffee or iced tea! (Can you imagine the vanilla and rose atop a lovely strawberry fruit salad? Yes please!).

Luna in Libra Simple Syrup

Call down the energies of the Moon in Libra for love, peace, and divination with this rose, rosemary, and vanilla simple cocktail syrup.


  • 1 tbsp dried rose petals
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1/4-1/2 inch vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Set water to boil. Meanwhile, collect your ingredients in an appropriate mason jar. Spend a moment breathing in the powerful aromas and energies of these ingredients. Pour the hot water over the ingredients, steep for 5 minutes, then add in sugar. Stir and let cool. Refrigerate over night if possible, to give vanilla and rose extra time to infuse. Otherwise, strain before use. Refrigerate and use for up to about 3 weeks.

Magical Additions

As a crystal healing practitioner, I can’t help myself when it comes to crystals and working with energy! Here are some crystals/stones I recommend for further utilizing the Libra sun energies described in this blog. To layer on the energetic & magical frequencies, you can meditate with your given crystal, keep it on you as make and/or sip the drink, as well as attune the crystal to the drink by visualizing both the drink and crystal resonating together with your intention, as you hold the crystal against the outside of the glass. (Don’t put your crystal in any of the cocktail components unless you know for sure it is not toxic). Here are their energies and why I suggest them (as it relates to the Libra New Moon).

  • Jade is a powerful healer, often used to increase the speed of the healing process. Associated with the heart chakra, it helps to open one to life’s abundance and transmute any blockages to prosperity. Wear for good luck, to balance your energies, or to aid in any healing. Particularly for this New Moon, Jade would be a wonderful choice to bring harmony and balance into various areas of your life: health/wellbeing, energy, prosperity, and relationships
  • Lapis Lazuli (Third Eye & Throat Chakras) is a great ally for psychic development and clear communication. This stone will help you access other realms and communicate with your guides. Lapis is a great stone for journeying for this reason, and can also be used to journey within oneself to uncover and heal karmic cycles. Especially amidst the mercury retrograde energies, this stone can help promote communication, internal alignment and balance, and calm.
  • Pink Calcite (Heart Chakra) connects to Divine Love and helps to activate the heart chakra, to clear blockages with emotional expression. Pink Calcite inspires wholeness and empathy, and will help provide emotional support as patterns are cleared away.

For other stones that may be good to work with for this time, check out the Libra in Love blog. There, I talk about amethyst, pink common opal, and kunzite that will also make wonderful choice for crystalline energy additions to your lunar workings.
