Moonstone honors the Goddess in all women. This stone helps women (and men) to be more comfortable with their gentler feminine/yin receiving side. This stone is also an excellent remedy for overly aggressive females or for men who need to connect to their more feminine/emotional side. Its connection to the moon has been documented for centuries. Because of its shimmering, glossy nature its color plays off the light as does the moon. Like the moon as it waxes and wanes, this reflective stone allows us the lesson that everything is a part of the cycle of change.

Moonstone is considered the stone of new beginnings. Moonstone is most famous for balancing our emotional states. Emotional states are connected to the water element, which are connected to the cycles of the moon and tides and therefore, has a strong relationship to a women’s menstrual cycle. Therefore, moonstone is one of the best stones for soothing emotional stress and anxiety. Moonstone helps cool, soothe and calm over-reactions to emotional and personal situations. It allows us greater flexibility and flow with life. Moonstone has been used for protection against the perils of travel. It encourages a lust for life, a youthful attitude and helps us to become comfortable with the aging process and its transitions.

Moonstone’s emotional connection makes it most effective when placed at the 2nd or Sacral/Spleen Chakra. Known to be of ancient spiritual significance in its connection to the moon and the intuitive aspect of one’s nature, the source of our intuition is often described as our “gut feeling” found at the Solar Plexus Chakra. This energy center deals with the human ego, emotions and self-power. Placing moonstone on the solar plexus helps to show us our old emotional patterns which, we hold on to. It can be used to work on dissolving these patterns that no longer serve us.

Although, the Third Eye Chakra is most associated with intuition, the “spark” is what is felt in the area of our solar plexus. This being the biggest nerve center in our body connected to almost all the organs. This is also where the connection between the three lower Chakra interchange with the four higher Chakra energy centers. Therefore, use moonstone to promote your intuitive and empathic nature. Use it also to encourage lucid dreaming, especially at the time of the full moon. It is the perfect stone for the Emotional Layer of the Aura. Moonstone is a great stone for meditation and helping with unconditional love. Since it heightens our understanding of nature and concerns for the environment, it is an essential stone for agriculturists and farmers alike. Moonstone encourages creativity, imagination, inspiration and awareness. It also has been used throughout history to bring good luck.
