Information is my own knowledge in my own words, checked against and supplemented by Melody’s Love Is In The Earth – A Kaleidoscope of Crystals.
Moonstone is a stone of mystery, gentle love and healing, subtle magick, and fertility. It is associated with feminine power, white witchcraft, and Archangel Haniel. Both the stone and the archangel can help with love and romance, conception and fertility, balancing emotions, female cycles and biorhythms. Its milky hue and lacy patterns remind one of the moon surrounded by wispy clouds. It reminds us that we are all part of the great cycle of life. We are all part of the magick.
Moonstone can be used to balance the sacral chakra which governs the reproductive and fluid functions of the body. I have found it works best placed on the actual sacral chakra. Meditating with moonstone, however, tends to unlock one’s magical and psychic side more. It has a gentle energy and a light touch unlike some crystals, and any changes or healing will be felt on subtle levels over subsequent weeks of working with it – so don’t expect any immediate sudden changes, but don’t expect to have a healing crisis either.
The lore of moonstone has seen it branded “the traveller’s stone” and as such, it is one of numerous stones used for travel protection. It also brings general good fortune. Moonstone is of the orthoclase family, is a relatively hard-wearing crystal and can be carried, worn, and held on a regular basis – and actually resonates best with water cleansing rather than other forms of cleansing.
