Crystal Lore: The Magic of Moonstones

Updated on December 14, 2014

Bring the magic into your life

The shimmer of the moonstone provides protection and attracts love. This stone draws its power from the Moon and can be used in conjunction with the moon's phases for spell casting. Using one also aids in divination -- store one with your Rune stones or Tarot cards and let them draw on this crystal's power. Wear one while doing divinatory activities to sharpen your perceptions.

Long used in love spells, this stone can both attract and heal love problems. Carry one or wear one while working out in your garden. This crystal's protective powers intensify during travel -- carry with you for business trips or vacations. When you have trouble sleeping, use it instead of sleeping pill. Simply slip it into your pillowcase and wait for sleep. Moonstone can even help you lose weight -- wear it while dieting.

This crystal's magical uses is complimented by its beauty. Look for this feldspar in blue, white or pink. Especially striking in pendants, these stones also looks lovely in bracelets and rings.

Please note, crystals do not come with guarantees. You should only use crystals in conjunction with other methods to enhance your life and to care for yourself. Crystals should not be a substitute for medical care or other professional advice.

My Runes

Last Yule, I received this lovely gift from a very dear friend and I treasure them. The moonstone Runes are beautiful and powerful. I've done numerous readings with them and have found that they enhance my gift.

Choosing your method of divination is a very personal matter, but the Runes speak to me most strongly. Those of you that are drawn to the Runes may want to consider using this stone instead of wood, especially if you are just learning how to use your gift.

      Monika, moonstones are beautiful gems. I know they're also part of good luck in feng sui charms. Although I'm not a Wiccan, this was a knowledgeable hub.
