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 at any other time 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 PowersDifficulty: 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
How to Prepare Moon Water
- 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:
- 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!

Tips for Collecting Moon Water
To make a very powerful Moon Water, start the first night of the lunar phase you chose (for example, the first night of the Full Moon), and charge the water outside for 3 consecutive nights. This can be done not just during the Full Moon phase, but during any lunar phase. Each has its own Magical properties as we will see below.
How to Use Moon Water in your Rituals
1. Enhance your Meditations
The first step towards strengthening your intuition is to recognize its existence. Being aware of your powers is key in realizing full potential while meditating.
- Light a blue or purple candle on your altar.
- Apply a drop of Moon Water to your Third Eye chakra (between the eyebrows) to open yourself to divine wisdom and revelation.
- Follow a guided meditation to awaken your inner knowledge and listen to your intuition.
- Find a place of peace within you, allowing the visions to come to you with ease. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t have any visions at first, practice makes perfect.
- Keep a bottle or jar of Moon Water near your altar to keep working on your abilities.
2. Add Moon Water to your Baths 💧
- Fill your bathtub as you normally do, and pour some Moon water that you’ve previously prepared. Get in the tub and pour the rest of the water on yourself.
- Follow a Spiritual Bath Recipe for more ideas. If you need to cleanse any specific part of your body, focus on that area. Visualize everything that no longer serves you being released from your body and aura.
- If you’ve charged your Moon Water with a specific intention, focus on absorbing the light of that intent, while promoting intense peace and relaxation. Wash your hair with Moon water to encourage growth with a divine glow.
3. Bless your finances with Moon Water
To make your money flow easily, Water is the perfect Element. Have confidence that nothing can stop the flow of money in your life.
- Bless your money by sprinkling just a few drops of Moon Water on your purse or wallet.
- Visualize the possibilities and the outcome you expect.
- On the Full Moon, you can cast this Silver Moon Spell for Money manifestations.
4. Purify and cleanse your home with Moon Water
Cleansing your sacred space is very important. No spiritual work can be done in an environment full of stagnant energy.
- Make sure to clean your house physically with a mop/sponge as you normally would and add some Moon Water to your bucket.
- You can also just sprinkle the water with your fingers or a spray bottle wherever you want to clean and bless the space.
- Optionally, combine this water with herbs or essential oils to spread more positive energies. Learn more about Herbal Witchcraft here.

5. Consecrate your crystals with Moon Water
Gemstones and crystals are powerful tools that we use to store, absorb, or amplify energy.
Charging your crystals implies establishing your intention and purpose. When you charge them under the Moon, they are infused with the deep symbolism of Lunar Magic (intuition, protection, and mystery).
- Place your stones outside to bathe under the Moon
- Put a bowl with water next to them.
- Make sure it’s safe to wash your stones with water, and phisically clean them with Moon Water.
6. Water your plants with Moon Water 💦
Consecration passes an intention or specific energy from your spirit onto the plant. There are many ways to bless a plant: This is a simple method which can be adapted to any practice.
- During the day, take the plant with both hands. If the plant is on the ground, place your palms near it.
- Visualize and feel a Magical energy flowing around the plant, fueled by your own heat and energy.
- Say the following spell:
“Sacred Nature, bless my plant.
Moonlight gives you a healthy life.
My Magic is your power,
To grow and protect me.
So mote it be!”
- Water your plant with Moon Water, or spray its leaves with it.
7. Charge your water with the energies of the Zodiac ♋
Each day, the Moon is passing through a zodiac sign. Do this if you want to invoke a specific trait of a zodiac sign, for example, during a future ritual or spell.
- Place a bowl of water by the window where the moonlight will touch it. You can also do this outside.
- Visit Today’s Lunar spell and follow the guided meditation for the current zodiac sign.
- Once you’re done, store the Moon water in a bottle or jar.
- Use the water in your ritual by simply placing a bowl of Moon Water on your altar as you call upon the Element Water, or sprinkle some water on your tools.

Can you make Moon Water on a cloudy night?
