Moon Water – Part 1


Moon Water is a very versatile Magical ingredient and one of the easiest to prepare. You will find that many recipes of Wiccan spells use it.

Learn how to make and use Moon Water in any lunar phase. Adding it to your pagan altar at home will help you harness the power of Element Water and the Moon in your ritual practice.

What is Moon Water?

Moon water is simply water that has been exposed to the moonlight and charged with a Magical intention. The water will now embody the properties and energy of that moon phase so we can use it whenever we need it in our craft.

How to Prepare Moon Water

We frequently use this water when for any reason we can’t work during the best Moon phase for a spell. Instead, by charging regular drinking water with the energy of the moon, we preserve that energy until a later time.

A Moon Water Recipe for Every Phase: Boost Your Magic Powers

Recipe by Francisco Huanaco Difficulty: Easy

Moon water is simply regular water that has been blessed under the Moon. You can make it on any lunar phase (not just the Full Moon!) chanting this easy Wiccan spell.


Drinking water (it can be tap/rain water if it’s safe to drink)

1 bowl or a glass container of any size


Pour water in the bowl. If it’s your first time, use 3 cups of water. Otherwise, feel free to experiment with the amounts.

Put the bowl in a place where it will be lit by the moonlight, preferably outside, but it could be near a window inside your home. It’s a good idea to use a glass bowl or a transparent bottle to allow the light to reach the water without obstructions. It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy outside, since moonlight, just like sunlight, can pierce through the clouds easily.

As you place the water in the moonlight, consecrate it by saying out loud:How to prepare Moon Water

Your intention/petition could be attracting more money to your life, healing a part of your body, fixing a relationship, or anything else where you want to focus this sacred energy.

You don’t need to leave the water outside all night. A few hours is enough, but make sure to collect it before dawn, before the sunlight touches it.

Filter out any insects that might have landed on the water and pour it in a bottle or jar. Store it in a dark place such as a kitchen cabinet or refrigerator until you use it.

You can use rain water too. If you’re planning to drink it afterwards, just make sure it’s safe to drink!
