Peach Moonstone stimulates your heart and radiates a very powerful loving energy. It helps keep you balanced and opens your Third Eye to all of the beautiful magick that surrounds you. Very limited supply. Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the Moon - an amulet of protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom. Our ties to the Moon are strong. As it waxes and wanes in cyclic perfection, it creates the tides and rhythms of our mother, Earth, and influences our behaviors, emotions and spiritual growth. Moonstone calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life. Moonstone is also a perfect medium for divining or scrying. A pale blue Moonstone works best for divining and should be set on a yellow cloth on the night of the Full Moon. Either by Moonlight, or silver candlelight, let the light play over the surface and look for images, mainly in your mind, and wait for words to explain the significance of the image. It generally refers to events within three months time.
