Moonstone is a “stone of new beginnings”. As its name suggests, it is strongly connected to the moon and to intuition. Like the moon, the stone is reflective and reminds us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, so everything is a 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.
