A moonstone stone has been considered a sacred healing stone since ancient times, having a special significance for lovers. In India, Moonstones were given as a traditional wedding gift, as they were believed to ensure a blessing of a large family and a harmonious marriage. Moonstone is the stone of destiny and is the gem of the High Priestess, the keeper of feminine mysteries. The moonstone meaning serves as a talisman for your personal journey, helping you to get to know yourself on a deeper level to discover your soul purpose. Moonstone healing properties are said to bring good fortune, enhance intuition and promote inspiration. They are also believed to bring success in love, as well as success in business related matters. Moonstone is also a powerful stone for protection while traveling.
The moonstone meaning has been used for centuries to connect with the energy and the power of the moon. Using a moonstone stone during a full moon is said to be the most powerful time to use it—so recharge and cleanse your moonstones underneath the light of a full moon. It is said that a moonstone stone can reveal to women their feminine power and facilitate their connection to their inner goddess. For men, it allows for the expression of the feminine side, an important step on the path to wholeness.
Moonstone is said to be one of the most powerful crystals for fertility. It helps to increase fertility and align you with your own natural rhythm, helping you to get pregnant. If you are using moonstone as fertility crystals, you want to place them directly on your body. You can lay with them directly on your body, or place them in your bra, like co-founder Timmi Jandro did when she was looking to get pregnant—just make sure they are touching your skin.
