What Is Moon Water?
Moon water is water that has be charged or infused with the moon’s powerful energy. Just like you can charge crystals and other objects under the power of the full moon, you can also charge water. Because water is the element associated with the moon, it makes sense to charge water with the moon’s energy so you can then reap the benefits from that power. And, because we humans are approximately 60-70% water, we can use moon water magic to heighten intuition, for health and healing, transformative energies and more.
You can harness the powerful energy of the full moon any time of the month, by making your own moon water, and charging the water with its potent energy.
How to Make Moon Water
To make moon water all you need is a vessel made of glass (a mason jar works perfectly), distilled or spring water (make sure it is drinkable if you are going to imbibe it – I use our well water), and the Full Moon. You can do this within the 3 days of the full moon – the day before, the day of the full moon and the day after. I prefer to do it the day of to get the purest power, but sometimes don’t have time so will do it the day before or after. You can also do it all three nights.
Fill your jar with pure water. Close mason jar lid to keep out bugs. Place mason jar outside under the full moon (preferable) or on a window sill where the full moon will shine upon it. If it is overcast, that is fine, as the moon’s energy will still charge the water.
You can surround your bottle with crystals like quartz or moonstone to amplify the power, rose quartz for love, citrine for abundance, bloodstone to detox with, and turquoise to heal. You may also want to add flowers and to anoint the bottle with essential oils (don’t add essential oils to the water unless they are real food grade oils – just anoint the outside of the bottle).
You can smudge the area with sage, light candles, call down a Moon Goddess, and state a powerful intention or blessing.
Moon Goddesses you can work with include: Aphroditus, Artemis, Astarte, Bastet, Diana, Hecate, Iana, Luna, Phoebe, Selene and many more.
Sit and meditate with the jar of water and the full moon above and visualize the moon’s pure silver energy pouring down on you and into the jar of water, instilling it with the moon’s energies.
Bless the water, and share your love, intention and gratitude with the moon, asking for what you desire to shine light on in your life. Leave the bottle outside to bathe in the full moon’s light.
In the morning, get the jar of moon water before the sun comes up and store it in the fridge for later use, or use right away.
