Healing Properties of Black Moonstone
Spiritual: Black Moonstone evokes the Goddess and the energy of the Dark Moon, a time for personal reflection, spiritual mystery, and deep psychic power. Moonstone is a stone of new beginnings, and the black ones invite us to explore our shadow side and the darker aspects of our life and psyche. Black Moonstone encourages us to sit with ourselves in non-judgement and accept “what is,” whether that be in the past or present, while simultaneously showing us the way forward, out of Darkness and into the Light. Black Moonstone is a warrior stone, with a deeply compassionate energy that suffers no fools and challenges us to face the world honestly and fearlessly. Anyone who works with Black Moonstone will be asked to confront the Truth and be changed forever. Black Moonstone activates the Kundalini Serpent, teaches emotional balance, awakens intuition, and empowers spells. Black Moonstone is attuned to the Root, Sacral, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Cancer, Libra, Scorpio. It is connected to the element of Wind; and vibrates to the Number 4.
Emotional: Black Moonstone can help us to sort through our emotions and deeply ingrained beliefs and understand them better. It helps us to step back from intense situations and look at them critically and without emotional judgement. It can also be used to analyze our habits to see whether or not they truly serve us. Black Moonstone invites us to think before we act, and to take time to process and examine new information, before jumping to conclusions. It teaches us the value of patience, and that proper timing is one of the keys to success. If we realize we are in a toxic relationship, Black Moonstone reminds us that healthy relationships require respect and trust. Love is another topic entirely. Love can exist in healthy and in dysfunctional relationships, so love is not the issue. If there is no trust or respect, that is a serious issue that requires a serious response. If we need to walk away from people we love, Black Moonstone helps us to do so with as much grace and dignity as we are capable of. It reminds us that we can’t fix every situation or every person, and that sometimes the only thing we can do is take good care of ourselves.
Mental: Black Moonstone is a stone of wild inspiration and intuitive knowing. It encourages us to trust that everything is working out according to a higher Divine plan. Yet, it also empowers us to take charge of our own lives and to be responsible for creating a life we can be proud of. Black Moonstone invites us to look more closely at our own thoughts and how they affect the world around us, and then to choose thoughts which bless our lives with joy and peace. Black Moonstone helps to calm overreactions and helps us to logically and intuitively explore emotional triggers and other erratic energies. If we are confused because of our own reactions or because of other people’s strange behavior, Black Moonstone invites us to stay curious and to keep asking questions and seeking answers that make sense. It reminds us that rushing to “get over it” before we understand, may be code for “bury it quickly” because the truth is painful and change can be hard. Black Moonstone reminds us that healing often takes considerable time and conscious effort. Black Moonstone gives us courage to seek the truth, so that we can heal what can be healed, and be gentle with what is broken.
Physical: Black Moonstone offers support when we have to face harsh realities, particularly around fertility. If we are anxious because of infertility or impotence, Black Moonstone helps us calmly sit with that discomfort and respond to it in the healthiest manner possible. It is especially good at night, when our defenses may be lower and we are more prone to dwelling and negatively judging. Black Moonstone is a phenomenal pregnancy stone. It helps women tolerate all the countless uncomfortable and un-glamorous aspects of pregnancy, with good humor and patience. If a woman is scared of labor and delivery, Black Moonstone acknowledges and calms those fears, rather than making light of them. Black Moonstone is highly recommended for any woman experiencing post-partum depression. It reminds us that these feelings are common and treatable, and it doesn’t mean the woman is a bad mother. Black Moonstone reminds us that life, human bodies and human emotions are messy and weird things, but it’s okay. Everything is going to be okay.
