Spring is Coming - Collecting Rainwater

Friday, February 15, 2008
Now I know many of you are probably scratching your heads right now. Asking, "Collect Rainwater? What is he, crazy?"
Well I'm not. I promise. I suggest collecting rainwater (as long as you don't live in a very bad area, you know acid rain and the such) to make magickal waters. I have found it useful in my magickal workings to make moon and sun waters for various workings.
To make the waters all you need is a piece of moonstone, a piece of obsidian and a piece of sunstone. To collect rainwater all you need is a large container and a rain storm. I have found it better and easier to use mason jars or to recycle other glass jars from in your house. Just please remember not to use any containers that held non edible materials, for safety's sake
For full moon water you would use the moonstone. For new moon water you would use the obsidian. And for the sun water you would use the sunstone.
Take the stone and set it in the water and set the container outside. For the moon waters, you will need to set the jar outside after darkness falls on the nights before, of and after the corresponding moon. Then bring them in before dawn. I have found that to make sun water, the easiest way is to set it out at dawn at each of the Sabbats and bring it in after sunset.
Occasionally you will want to repeat the above steps to recharge the waters.
Now what use are these things? I have used them for things from personal magick, dream working, helping children to get over a fear of the dark. Use your imagination, the waters embody the aspects present at the times of their creation. Think of them as liquid moon or sun.
Use them wisely and good luck.

Blessed Be!
