How to Make moon water under Bloody moon

Under October’s bloody moon we are making moon water for cleansing and empowering new beginnings. ‘Hunter’s moon’ is October’s full moon. It takes its name from the indigenous America tradition where the hunters used the full moon’s light to spot their prey. Contrary to the common belief, ‘Hunter’s moon’ is no brighter than usual. Only difference is its dawn happens earlier which gave the hunters the advantage of time to hunt longer under a bright sky.

Bloody moon and witchcraft

For the purpose of this article, we will continue to refer to it as the ‘bloody moon’ so we will not get confused. Because it appears very early in the afternoon you can see it at the horizon and it tricks you that is bigger than usual, but it is not. What happens is you are observing it through a thicker atmosphere that spreads more blue light and allows red light to reach your eyes.

Witches were very keen on the bloody moon as it was their chance to talk to the souls of their ancestors. There are lots of rituals that the witches would use to call upon help or just chat with a departed soul. To speak with the spirits of the aether they used additional tools like herbs and stones to keep away the forceful energies they couldn’t control and just consult the peaceful spirits.

Moon water recipe

Fill up a glassed bottle with water. I would do rain water, but any water can do. I would suggest a new one, but any should be fine as long as it is clean and shiny. You can add your favourite stones in it to clean them and empower them and they will also give their properties to your water. Don’t forget to put the lid on. Take it out to the full moon on a single hour and leave it there before the first light of dawn. Bring it in before the first light and it is ready for use.

The moon water can be made in any full moon of the year although some moons are stronger than others like the imminent one. Good luck with your ritual and let us know how it went!
