Cancer 22 June – 23 July
It comes as no surprise that the moonstone is this star’s gemstone, considering the water sign’s planetary ruler is the moon. Beloved for its pearl-like sheen that seems to move with life, moonstones are often regarded as gems that aid self-reflection and personal growth, while boosting intuition and inspiration. It’s also known as a gemstone for lovers, which makes it perfect for a Cancerian’s tendency to love deeply and devotedly. Give a moonstone to your lover when it’s full moon and it’s said you’ll always be passionate about that person. So think carefully before discarding this stone or it may give rise to a bit of awkwardness in the future. Other associated gems: Pearl, emerald, and ruby
