The Elements Series: Water

the-elements-series-triple-moon-alchemy-post-image

I know that in the last post I said that the Earth Element was up first. It’s not. I decided since we are under a water sign Moon I would begin with Water so that we could be in zone for any rituals and incantations that we perform relating to Water at this time, at least for the next couple days. It’s not that you can’t perform water spells under non water signs, it’s about perfect alignment only. Your desires can still be manifested even if the moon phase is an Air sign or Fire sign and so on.

Also, in my last post, the first of this series, I stated several things. Some of what I wrote and said in this(link) YouTube video was not accurate, or rather, it was a little jumbled, which could have sounded like I was not clear about what I was talking about. For that reason, I want to clarify something.

Our entire universe, including the Earth is formed of unseen particles, that form atoms, that form the Elements. Every single thing visible and invisible originated from the One source of all life. What YOU choose to call that One source is on you. I am sharing MY view point of the Elements and their origin. I also stated that in learning and understanding these Elements, we can gain the favor of them. What I mean by that is that by recognizing and understanding these Four Elements as well as the Quintessence, we are then empowered to develop a deeper spiritual consciousness and use these elements purposefully with intention in order to bring about what we desire. Thereby healing our own shadow self and by and large the world.

I hope that that clears things up for those of you that needed it. Now, let’s get this Water flowin’.

Astrological signs with dominate Water personalities

  • Pisces

  • Cancer

  • Scorpio

Water also rules the  4th, 8th, & 12th astrological Houses

People born under these water signs are known to exhibit traits that are more

  • Fluid

  • Emotional

  • Deep

  • Nurturing

  • Sympathetic

  • Empathetic

  • Imaginative

  • Intuitive.

Under a water sign New or Full moon, you can do magick that taps into the power of any of the aforementioned traits. Whenever you need to tap into any of these traits, you can “go to the water”. Take a ritual bath, a shower, go to the river, a stream, a waterfall, the ocean. Meditate on any of the traits that are inherent to the water, and draw into yourself what you need. Water is feminine by nature. Like a nurturing mother, grandmother, sister or friend. The water can rock you gently like a child and bring you great peace. However, water isn’t just used for drawing in energy.

The water element should also be used to let go of, or cast off. You can simply wash your hands under running water and visualize your troubles washing away as the water drains through your hands. Word to the wise though, the force of water is oh so powerful. Able to flow many things your way, yet just as able to take away what it pleases. It can be so fierce as to swallow up anything and devour what it will. Destructive yes, but perhaps it is to make room for needed newness or revitalization in our lives.

There are certainly many more ways to utilize water energy. I will list a few more at the end of this post.

Human beings are predominantly water. Becoming more aware of the water you posses i.e., tears, urine, saliva, and much much more, will help to give you conscious awareness of the water within. In doing so, we can begin to understand our connection to the water element more profoundly. We all need it to survive. Humans, plants, trees and other animals must have large amounts of water pass through us over time in order to function properly. Insufficient water intake means death. Use this powerful element regularly to prevent stagnation and low magickal vibrations.

Ever notice how the smallest stream can erode the earth it passes over? Slowly but surely over time the water gets what it wants. Even if you are not born under a water sign, you can embody the waters energy. May we all be the water. Persistent and constant in our pursuits so to see success in due time. Ashe!

Water embodies creation inspiration. Its energy comes into play when giving birth. Not only physically obviously, but to ideas, longings and hopes. Water is all about moving and changing.  Love spells and incantations benefit greatly from water element energy. Flowing water in one direction has the energy of increase. Still water provides peace and tranquility. Rain water energy is an opportunity to release and draw at the same time when doing magick with the rain. Ocean water energy is very powerful for releasing and drawing. Wanna cast a spell for increased love, prosperity, financial growth and see faster results? Stand in or near by fast moving water and work your spells and incantations!

Water is used in ceremony around the world. It is used in various paths to baptise or cleanse a person and is representative of leaving an old life and being born into a new one. Water has the power to transform. Water IS transformation.

Crystals & such that have water energy: Blue agate, cowrie shells, Lapis Lazuli

Feminine water Deities: Oshun, Yemaya, Ezili, Danu, Nephthys, Tefnut, Mami Wata, Nymphs, Samundra, Nephthys

Ritual Baths

In many magickal traditions, bathing is often done prior to performing a magickal operation to ensure that we be both physically and spiritually clean and attuned. However, a spiritual/ritual bath is often a magickal operation in and of itself.

Herbal baths can be extremely therapeutic. When you are immersed in water, the pores of the skin are open and receptive to the healing properties of the herbs; it’s a highly effective method of treatment.”    

~ Rosemary Gladstar, Family Herbal

What you put in your spiritual bath should depend on what magick you wish to accomplish. For example, if you wish to draw money you will use the herbs and minerals used for drawing money like alfalfa. If love, herbs like red roses, and lavender should be used. Do your research and find the herbs and such that work best for you.

To cleanse your aura, and to draw down the power, magic and sensuality of the moon goddess. Combine the following ingredients and mix together.

1-1/2 cups epsom salts

1/2 cup sea salt

1/4 cup baking soda

1/2 cup organic dried rose petals

1/2 cup organic rosemary

Alternatively you could simply order the>>> luxurious Aphrodite bath soak from the Apothecary.

  • Fill a cloth or muslin bag with your herbal mixture and close it up.  Toss your herb pouch into a tub filled with the hottest water you can stand.  Once the tub is filled to your liking, gather candles, soft music, and light an incense. Frankincense incense for purification if you have it.

  • While bathing, visualize the essence of beauty seeping from the pouch and swirling through the water and soaking into your body. See yourself more capable, more sensual, more attractive to whomever you wish to be. Evoke the Divine Feminine power of Aphrodite, Venus, Isis or Oshun to fill your bath with sensual power. Soak. continue to visualize and breathe in the floral essence. When you have finished your soak, carefully get out of the bath, air or gently towel dry, dress yourself (or not), perform magick that corresponds with your intentions.

Wow, that is a wealth of info regarding the element of Water. I really hope that this resonates with you and that you utilize water in exciting new ways to bring about what you desire.

That’s all for now, next week the series continues with Fire I think. Hahaha, we shall see. If you haven’t checked out the>>> YouTube channel, you do so right here. I post a new video each week so be sure to subscribe so that you don’t miss anything.

Blessed be. Ashe!
