The Complete Moonstone Healing Guide (+ 2 Powerful Rituals)
For many ancient cultures, moonstone symbolized the radiant and mysterious power of the moon. The ancient Romans even believed they were solidified moonbeams — the very essence of the moon itself. In India, it is considered to be a powerful occult stone that brings good fortune. Named the Chandra Kanta (light of the moon), it is associated with the god Chandra. Regardless of the culture, however, it was venerated everywhere and prized for its beauty. And who can blame them? It’s captivating in every way.
Today, many healers still use moonstone for its powerful influence over the different emotional aspects of our lives. Here are just a few.

Moonstone Healing For Women
The moon, long associated with feminity (as the sun is the masculine), is said to influence nearly all aspects of the watery nature of women. Men are also affected, of course, but to a lesser extent. Moonstone is believed to be a representation of moon energy, and as such helps in establishing female cycles because it’s in tune with that same ebb and flow. It’s excellent for PMS, conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
Out of all the gemstones, moonstone is most associated with the Divine Feminine. It has long been believed it was one the few stones that could be used throughout all the major life-phases of a woman: maid, mother, and wise-woman. When used in meditation, it helps to connect to kundalini energy and the ability to see the future.
Moonstone Healing For Men
Many men go through life without connecting to their deeper feminine side. This is like walking around without ever using one of your limbs! Moonstone helps to balance the feminine/masculine energies. It’s the perfect treatment for a guy who’s macho. It stimulates the right side of the brain, helping to bring about deeper emotional balance.
By promoting intuition and empathy, moonstone has a powerful effect on the emotions. A certain calmness is imparted to the user, allowing a person to find more harmony in their relationships. By tapping into emotions in a more balanced way, lucid dreams are also more easily accessible.
It’s easy to beat your head against the wall when the universe seems to be taking its time delivering what you feel you need at the moment. Moonstone helps bring a modicum of patience, and proper action at the right time. Once again, this is because it calms the emotions. Moonstone is one of the most, if not THE most powerful stone for intuition and psychic awareness. It opens your communicative ability with higher beings, both on the physical plane and the astral. It can help you attune to your guides and follow their guidance.
These are a couple moonstone rituals you can practice yourself. Remember to always structure them around the waxing and waning of the moon.
Many ancient rituals involve a moon bath. It cleanses the body, mind, and soul. Simply draw a bath and add moonstones and Himalayan salt to the water. Soaking in the tub will not only help you connect to the Divine Feminine energies within you but help release toxins by way of the salt and minerals. Obviously, it’s best to do this on a full moon, as it connects to moonstone and is also an auspicious time to let go. You can add essential oils and incense to your liking as well.
If you’re around a natural body of water, simply jumping in under a full moon is a very healing act.
For New Beginnings
This ritual is all about releasing and moving on. Under the stars, with a moonstone in your hand, close your eyes and think of the things in your life you’d like to change. Repeat “Take these negative thoughts and attachments away from me.” while visualizing the bad energy flowing into the moonstone. Do this every night until there’s a full moon. On that night, go somewhere far from your home and bury the gemstone. Then leave those worries and troubles under the dirt and never look back.
