Making Moon Water
Moon water is at its most potent when made on the night of the full moon or during a partial or total lunar eclipse. You can also make it in the two or three days before the full moon if the skies are clear and the moon is shining brightly.
1. On the night of the full moon (it rises around sunset) set a silver colored or clear crystal bowl outdoors where the moonlight can shine on it.
2. Half-fill it with still mineral water, if possible from a sacred source, and, if you have any add a few drops of water from a holy well. You can substitute bubbling tap water.
3. Surround the bowl with pure white flowers or blossoms or small moonstones.
4. If you have a small silver bell, ring it three times, saying for each ring:
“First the Maiden, now the Mother, then the Wise Grandmother.”
5. Raise your arms on either side of your head, your hands facing upwards flat with pal uppermost and repeat the same words three times.
6. Stir the water nine times moonwise (anticlockwise) with a silver colored paper knife (silver being the color and metal of the moon) or an amethyst crystal point. Ask the moon mother to bless the water and those who use it.
7. If you are not carrying out a moon ceremony, leave the bowl in position, covered with fine mesh, overnight.
8. Ring the bell three times more before leaving and say:
9. If you don’t have a bell, kneel and put your hand round the bowl, saying:
10. Using a glass jug and filter, pour the water if possible into small blue, silver or frosted glass bottles that you can seal and keep in your fridge or a cool place until the next full moon night. If you use a plain bottle label it so you don’t mistake it for another magickal water.
11. Any water left at the end of the moon period should be poured into the ground before moonrise on the next full moon night.
