The Gemstone of Inward Vision
The meaning of Moonstone is feminine energy and new beginnings. This stone is a great magnifier of emotions but does it in a way that doesn’t compromise balance. It is also said to promote healthy menstrual cycles in women
Like the great glowing anchor of the sky, the magic of the Moonstone enchants us with its bright feminine energy, its tide-like tug, and its promise of cyclical change. For centuries, the moon has been a symbol of the goddess spirit, hanging like an orb above our heads, sometimes a slip of light, other times as fat and full as harvest. The Moonstone captures all this magic and more, this albite mineral is shot through with light beams and a milky sheen also known as adularescence. It is an orthoclase stone – also known as a variety of feldspar mineral. The Moonstone has been sourced from many far-flung corners of the globe, from the tea terraces of Sri Lanka to the whimsical shores of Madagascar, the Aurora lands of Norway, and the vast expanse of Australia.
If you’ve ever felt like you were losing your mind on a full moon, then this is just a hint as to how much the Moon affects our emotional balance. The Moonstone is here to shine a light through the darkness and to elevate all those feelings. When you take a symbol of the moon and keep it on your person or in your life, it will intuitively link you to the universe and can bring all those wild hormones into check, ensuring that you are moving in flow with the world outside your window. The Moonstone is also known as the stone of new beginnings. Everything passes, everything changes and the Moonstone reminds you how important it is to embrace the cyclical nature of the seasons and not to fear the turning of the page and the potential of new chapters. Rather than sink into overwhelm, the Moonstone helps you to process and accept through the harmony of its natural healing powers
The Moonstone connects beautifully with the Heart Chakra, the Third Eye Chakra, and the Crown Chakra, the two chakras that invite us to look deep within so that we can see far beyond the confines of our own periphery. These two chakras when open and attuned help us to find our place in the universe and help us to feel part of this great cosmic jigsaw swirling above our heads.
If you truly want to make the most of the Moonstones power then the best way to bring it into your world is with Moonstone jewlery. Whether you choose a glorious glowing Moonstone bracelet or a beautiful Moonstone ring upon your finger, having the stone set directly against your skin allows for maximum absorption of its power. When gemstones are placed on the skin, the stone is able to work with the natural frequencies of your body, sending those healing vibes right where are they needed.
