Moonstone is also considered a good luck stone.
Moonstone is a very personal stone. A stone of wishes, intuition, and balance. It is a reflection of the person who owns it. It does not add or detract, only shows how it is. This is why the moonstone is said to perceive that which "is". Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. Moon stone helps to soothe and balance the emotions. They assist in the master of your emotions by bringing them under control of your will, instead of repressing or expressing them. Moonstone is an excellent stone to use in meditation to understand oneself. Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness, not a full or waning moon, can revitalize it.
This is a particularly good gemstone for women, young women or teenagers. Moonstone represents the great Mother Goddess. Her strength lies in her gentleness, and her ability to experience, process, and neutralize her feelings. Some people think that Moonstone is strictly a feminine stone, because it is associated with a woman's monthly cycle. But nurturing, gentle care, and unselfish humanitarian service is not simply a female attribute. It aids all people to be more comfortable with their gentler, feminine side. Moonstone can unblock those feelings in both men AND women who are afraid to acknowledge or experience consciously how they feel on a personal and internal level. It is the perfect antidote for the excessively macho man or overly aggressive female.
Discernment: "Want" and Need" do not come from the same place. Moonstone can assist you in absorbing those things that are “needed” in life while helping you discern what is merely “wanted”. It improves emotional intelligence.
In the Eastern cultures, Moonstone was favored for LOVE. They believed that wearing or carrying a moonstone would bring a new love into your life. They also believe that holding a piece of moonstone over their hearts after a quarrel, and then exchanging the stones with each other, would bring you back together.
Like Moss Agate, Malachite, and Jade, Moonstone is associated with Gardening. All four are attributed to nature, water, and fertilization. Wear during planting, weeding, or watering, and visualize your garden bursting with fertility as you work. Hang a small wind chime and dangle these stones over your garden, or bury a few small pebbles in the earth.
Moonstone fosters happiness, gracefulness, good fortune, hope, spiritual insight, enhances intuition and lucid dreaming, easy childbirth, safe travel on water, new beginnings and adjusting to changes, abundance and ancient wisdom. Motherly love, support, encouragement.
