ADVENT CALENDAR DAY 10: MOONSTONE
This is a day with karma 2, from the numerological point of view: 10+12+2023=29=11=2.
We are back to the moon frequency. However, the number 11 can also represent struggle, fight, war: the two vertical lines can be seen as lances or fighting sticks.
Moonstone is composed of Orthoclase and Albite and belongs to the family of silicates. Rainbow Moonstone is a name often given to Labradorite in a white matrix.
It is also known as Selenite, from the Greek name for the moon goddess Selene. Ancient Hindu lore held that Moonstone held trapped moonbeams. In ancient Rome, it was thought that Moonstone received its pearly luster from the stored light of the Moon.
Moonstone became known as the “Traveler’s Stone” due to travelers’ belief that Moonstone would protect them and help light their path. However, Moonstone isn’t just good luck for travelers – it is believed to be a stone of good luck for all. Its brilliant glow even led to legends that sucking Moonstone could reveal one’s destiny.
Moonstone aids the digestive system, assimilates nutrients, eliminates toxins and fluid retention, and alleviates degenerative conditions of skin, hair, eyes, and fleshy organs such as the liver and pancreas. It stimulates the pineal gland and balances hormonal cycles, being excellent for PMS, conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding. Moonstone is also beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.
In homeopathic form, this remedy rebalances the fluids in the body: issues like water retention, particularly during menses. Oedema, dehydration can be helped by this remedy. Rebalances kidney and bladder function.
Compare with Pulsatilla, Thuja, Staphysagria, Sepia and Medorrhinum.
Inability to cry, similar to Nat Mur but different in the sense that Nat Mur avoids and tries not to cry, but once they start, they cannot stop. Moonstone is physically unable to cry, despite the grief.
