A stone for “new beginnings”, Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilizes the emotions, providing calmness. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters.
Moonstone aids the digestive system, assimilates nutrients, eliminates toxins and fluid retention, and alleviates degenerative conditions of skin, hair, eyes, and fleshy organs such as the liver and pancreas. It stimulates the pineal gland and balances hormonal cycles, being excellent for PMS, conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding. Moonstone is also beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.
If you are going through a breakup or are having difficulties with someone close to you, carry Black Moonstone at all times. When individuals deal with stress from another person that they’ve shared experiences or life with, they subconsciously lower their guard because of the love they have for them. When we see a loved one uncomfortable, it is in our nature as humans to help. This can backfire and leave one susceptible to their toxic energy. Carrying this stone around these people will allow you to continue opening up your heart to them. It will also provide support without the worry of their negativity affecting your own emotional body.
