Though you can make moon water at any time of the month, for beginners, it’s best to start with the full moon. Full moons are times of culmination and receiving feedback. Think about it: In ancient times, there were a few days every month when the full moon lit up the sky, allowing for more social activity at night, even on the darkest winter days. Full moons are bursting with energy! The new moon on the other hand, is when the sky is dark and things are just beginning. It’s harder to see what we’re working with. That said, be sure to read your horoscope and check what astrologers are saying about the upcoming full moon before you make your moon water. You want to make sure it’s an essence worth bottling. Just like not every wine is a good vintage, not all full moons give the same energy.
Step 2: Gather your supplies
Once you’ve determined a date for making moon water, it’s time for the fun part! Gathering your supplies. Though all you really need for moon water is a small container (a bottle or bowl), and well, water, you can also add herbs to your mixture or charge crystals at the same time.
You want to match the energy of the moon with any ingredients you’re adding to the potion. For example, if it’s a full moon in Leo, you may want to acquire some solar herbs like St. John’s-wort, chamomile or calendula. Likewise, for the full moon in Virgo, you might want to work with Mercurial herbs like lavender, cinnamon or thyme.
