The moon moves with us in a sacred dance that mirrors the cycles of life. This intimate dance is what we celebrate when we monitor moon phases and honor her as she pulls, fills, renews, and guards us. The new. The waxing. The full. The waning. We exalt her silver radiance and rejoice in her divine counsel during every one of these four major phases. Use the stones in this Moon Phases Gem Set as your tools for channeling her energies throughout the cycle.
All moon work begins at the new moon, when the sky is dark. I think of this time as a clean slate. A time for opening and visioning work. Setting intentions, releasing fear, leaning into faith. Black moonstone is the magical gem to work with during this invigorating moon phase. It has all the properties of white or rainbow moonstone with a darker hue, a deeper vibration, and an added grounding benefit that makes it VERY potent for ritual and ceremonial work. Black moonstone will boost creative energies and help you vision in the darkness.
The next major moon phase is the waxing moon. This phase is all about emergence of light, commitment to intentions, and gathering tools for the work ahead. Use rainbow moonstone as your tool during this motivating moon phase. Rainbow moonstone is the prism stone – it contains the entire rainbow within it, and holds the energy of all seven energetic rays of prismatic light. This stunning stone also mirrors your feminine energy, harnesses wisdom, and even develops a relationship with its owner – so this piece you receive will truly be yours forever.
Following the waxing moon is the almighty, all-powerful full moon. This phase is about celebrating fruition, bathing in the light, receiving and opening wide to what is available. During this phase we experience a complete release of fear and surrender to the present moment. Moonstone is your main magical gem during this celebratory moon phase. Also known as a Directional Stone in Native American practice, moonstone represents the directions of both North and West. It lights the way, ignites your trust, and reminds you that you have the wisdom you need to walk the path you’ve chosen in this lifetime.
As she completes her cycle, we celebrate the waning moon. This phase is centered on cleaning up from the creation, gathering tools to begin the descent, honoring and giving thanks, and allowing the energies to be anchored. Use peach moonstone to harness the power of this fortifying moon phase. Peach moonstone, the emotional healer of the moonstone family, allows you to see beneath the surface of your challenges and explore and heal the feelings you uncover.
This listing is for (4) gemstones, each about 1” in size, which will each come gift-bagged in organza with a card describing the stone’s properties and recommended use. I charge all gems on my personal altar space and bathe them in full moonlight before listing. Each piece is chosen carefully and vetted for quality. Shop with confidence.
Bright Moon Blessings,
