It was my birthday recently and I’ve got to say, hitting the ripe age of 36 has made me stop and evaluate what I’ve done in my time on this planet. I’ve come to realise that it’s all too easy to invalidate our own feelings, experiences and achievements – It’s only natural to play down your greatness because you don’t want to seem like you’re tooting your own horn.
The whole age thing has prompted me to evaluate where I want to be in the next few years, what I actually want from life; and one thing is for sure… I know I definitely don’t want to be sat in the same place contemplating the same things again next year. So here we are aged 36… Manifesting a year of positive change and personal growth, not just for me but for us all! Let’s do this! 💪🏽
The talk about growth and manifesting brings me neatly to the beauty of Moonstone. Known as the gemstone for “new beginnings”, Moonstone is a stone of personal growth, strength and stability. It calms stress, and balances the emotions in a soft and comforting way. Moonstone gives you confidence in your own intuitions, inspires you to get creative, and brings success and good fortune in love and business matters.
Profoundly connected to our lunar satellite, the Moonstone is the ideal gem to wear during the New and Full moon phases while setting your intentions and manifesting.
Mostly found in India, Sri Lanka and Australia, this beautiful stone comes in pearly opalescent shades of white, grey, blue, green and even uplifting shades of peachy pink. The pearly effect of Moonstone is called Adularescence, or the Schiller Effect, where light appears to “float” beneath the surface of a gemstone, giving it a magical glowing lustre akin to a full moon. You can also get Rainbow Moonstone, which is usually a milky white stone with flashes of the (you guessed it!) rainbow on the surface 🌈
A Crown affair..
This beautiful stone is connected to the Crown chakra, so it will enhance your natural intuition, bringing clear thinking, stability, perspective, positive thinking and a desire and drive to be your best self. The clarity this stone brings will make it easier to embrace new opportunities that come your way. This stone is perfect for anyone who is feeling stuck or weighed down by negativity.
Being a highly nurturing stone, it will also help you to tap into your feminine energy. It is said to help womens reproductive systems and is beneficial for conception, childbirth and easing the emotional challenges of early motherhood.
So now we know what Moonstone is about, lets take a look at why this opalescent gemstone is the perfect partner for our June babes. Gemini and Cancer are the Zodiacs of the month, so lets dive right in…
Our Gemini friends are known to be flexible and easy going and will happily chat to anyone who has the time for it. Their confidence is on another level, they are strong and intelligent but are also indecisive. Wearing a Moonstone can benefit Gemini’s by
bringing emotional clarity, helping them to find an easy path to achieve their goals.
The Twins are impulsive and love an adventure, but they also have a tendency to gossip. Wearing a Moonstone can help a Gemini to look inwards and speak with more thought and love.
Moonstone is the perfect stone for our Cancer friends because it has the same nurturing energy as a Cancerian. They can often find themselves putting their loving and devoted energies to the wrong people, which leads to emotional pain. Wearing a Moonstone can help our Crabby pals (yep I said it) to direct their beautiful energies towards the right causes and people, helping them to feel appreciated, fulfilled and ultimately, at peace with themselves.
Cancers are highly empathetic, meaning they can easily tune in to other peoples emotions and this in turn can strongly affect their own feelings. Wearing a Moonstone can help in these cases because it is a protective stone that cleanses negative energy, and it can also help Cancerians to shed their pessimism and boost their self-confidence in a gentle and balanced way.
