Last day of September today - the Gibbous Moon will be entering the Mutable Water Sign of Pisces
early this evening..... in my Seasons of the Witch datebook it says for today that there are Major energies for Psychic Development after the v/c moon period.... and with the moon moving into Pisces which is when psychic energy is at it's height there can be some intense connections made. And it is Woden's Day (Wednesday), a day of Communication and Connection so there is all sorts of good vibes happening today to develop your psychic development.
It has been raining here in my part of the world going five days now - Saturday thru this morning ... still dark, cloudy and raining outside. Sigh, but it is autumn what can a witch expect.
Here is information for witches regarding rain:
Witches have always known the special meaning of nature's acts. They are
warnings, blessings and magic guides to our living in the world around us. Rain
is a special gift from the sky and its power should be used wisely. Try never
to shelter yourself from its fall, but
rather accept the rain as we should accept live with all of its
trials and blessings.
* Rain while the sun shines is a healing rain. Catch and store it in
blue glass. Use the water for all manner of healing magic. Place in
the bath for an overall body cleaning.
* The blessing of fairies is upon anyone who catches rain in a
silver spoon after the rain has bounced off a flat stone. Place some
of this water on any object that is frequently misplaced. Keys are
always a good choice.
* Place midnight rain of a New Moon on the third eye to bring visions and
see future events.
* The first rain gathered in May is symbolic of May Day dew and holds much
power. It is used when very special favors are needed. Do not gather this
rain in a metal container or its power will be lost. A
glass or wood container would do much better.
*When rain runs off a gravestone, gather carefully and use with
*Rain gathered during a thunderstorm holds much energy and can be used to
enhance spells and potions. But be aware that the energy does not last long and
the spell should be completed before three days and three nights have passed
or the rain water will be of little use.
* House plants enjoy the outdoor rain - this cleanses their leaves
and helps to purify the indoor air when they are brought back in the
home. This is especially good to do when you are in need of a clear
mind and strong thought.
* Jewelry, charms and other objects can be purified by standing in
the rain, facing west and tossing the object into the air, three
times, catching it in your hands each time.
And here is a little rain photo gallery:
It is one of those days: rainy autumn storms, broken umbrellas, wet coats, and taking the tram to work instead of my trusted bike.
