A Crown Chakra crystal, Moonstone has long been the stone of love and fertility, of intuition and magic, protection, and of hope and spiritual purity. Moonstone calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life, opens the heart to empathy, and assists in the acceptance of love.
Moonstone is said to increase one’s sensitivity to the Feminine Divine, to heighten intuition and open one up to their psychic gifts. It encourages hope and inspiration, allowing you to wish and aspire and flow in harmony with your dreams, and opens you to serendipity and synchronicity. Moonstone is also said to induce restful sleep, and aid in lucid dreaming.
It’s a stone of protection for women and children, especially pregnant women and babies. It has been used for centuries to enhance fertility, is also believed to support women's reproductive health all around, from easing menstrual problems to soothing fluctuating hormones and assisting a woman in childbirth. Considered a "stone of the goddess" by some, the moonstone is associated with the moon and the tides, femininity and the subconscious. It helps sync up the rhythms of lunar energy to the rhythms of a woman’s body. Moonstone helps men become more in-tune with the feminine aspects of their nature, and stimulates the right side of the brain, encouraging nonlinear thinking and emotional balance
Black Moonstone has all of the properties of white moonstone, with an extra focus on New Moon energy, or the beginning of things. This is a great stone to bring out at the start of any new endeavor, new relationship, or a new pregnancy. Black moonstone is also very protective, deflecting negative energy, and transforming them back to light. More grounding than other Moonstones, it's a much gentler energy than other Root Chakra crystals like Black Tourmaline, and would be useful for Star and Indigo Children who need a gentler tether to this physical plane. Black Moonstone is especially suitable for New Moon Rituals.
