A stone of new beginnings, moonstone radiates a very gentle, loving, mothering energy. It supports intuitive understanding, psychic development and prophecy, and increases awareness of the synchronicities at work in your life. It also helps to bring what is hidden into the light, and to calm anxiety, and opens the way for success in all matters.
Moonstone comes in a variety of colors, and where overall, the energy of moonstone is consistent from color to color, the different colors each have their own nuance.
Black Moonstone is my crystal choice for the new moon. I usually start working with a piece about two days before, the day of, and then two days after the new moon. Because the new moon opens the way for introspection, I’ve found black moonstone to be very supportive when doing inner work. It helps to separate intellectual beliefs from emotional blocks, for greater clearing benefits, and provides psychic protection.
This gentle stone carries with it the powerful energy of love and compassion. As a heart healer, it’s a wonderful piece to carry when you feel you’re being hard on yourself, or others. Let’s face it, judgment, toward self or others, always feels awful. The nurturing energies of this stone help to release those judgments, and instead channel the healing energies of love and compassion through your heart and out into your life.
This beautiful stone can help connect your creative inspirations and intuitions with the actual doing of creating. So often people fantasize about what they’d love to see manifest in their life, but because of doubt, they lack the motivation to take the actual required actions to manifest their creative inspiration. This stone can help you to move forward, even when doubtful, and trust your intuition.
Rainbow moonstone is a crystal for transformation, and I love to use it around both the new moon, and the full moon, along with any other time where I feel there is a lot of change and transformation occurring. And let’s face it, that’s happening a lot these days! It’s also a wonderful stone to aid in lucid dreaming, and dreamwork.
White moonstone helps to increase inspiration, and intuition, and is another of my favorites for use at both the full and the new moon. It’s a wonderful stone to use for setting intentions, and it helps to open the way for visions to manifest.
Whatever color moonstone you choose to work with, remember one of the greatest gifts it offers is the ability to channel wisdom and understanding about the path you’ve chosen to walk in this lifetime, along with providing whatever necessary support you may require to stay on that path.
