"Moonstone is a 'stone of new beginnings.' As its name suggests, it is strongly connected to the moon and to the intuition. Like the moon, the stone is reflective and reminds us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, so everything is part of a cycle of change. Its most powerful effect is that of calming the emotions.
Moonstone makes conscious the unconscious and promotes intuition and empathy. It encourages lucid dreaming, especially at the time of the full moon.
Moonstone has traditionally been used to enhance psychic abilities and to develop clairvoyance.
Moonstone calms overreactions to situations and to emotional triggers. Moonstone is filled with receptive, passive, feminine energy. It balances male-female energies and aids men who want to get in touch with their feminine side.
Moonstone opens the mind to sudden and irrational impulses, serendipity, and synchronicity.
Moonstone soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilizes the emotions. It improves emotional intelligence."
