If you know a thing or two about astrology, you’ll likely know that tonight (July 23rd) sees the full ‘buck‘ moon in Aquarius. If you’re really into your astrology, you’ll want to take advantage of the ‘buck moon’ by making moon water.
Set your intentions, grab your favourite crystals, and let’s get going.
What is moon water?
Okay – you might think this is a little bit hippy-dippy, but stay with us!
In short, the moon has so much more control than we know. For example, it affects the ocean’s tides, meaning we know that it has a strong connection with water.
Moon water is a way to align ourselves with the moon and create a tool for cleansing – whether that’s ourselves, our energy or our crystals.
How to make moon water during the ‘Buck moon’
Unsure where to start? We have you covered.
Start with a container – we recommend a mason jar – and fill it with water. You can either leave the container open or close it with a lid, either way works fine!
Next, opt for a location in direct moonlight. Tonight (23rd July) is perfect due to the full moon. Place your container in a space where it can be exposed to the moonlight, such as a patio or garden.
You now need to set your intention. A full moon is an ideal opportunity to let go of negatives and circumstances in your life that no longer serve you. Your intention could be anything from love, confidence, abundance or even just a general cleanse of your energy.
If you want to, you can go a step further by incorporating crystals. For example, if you’re looking to bring in love with the full moon, you could place a rose quartz on top of your container.
Finally, leave the water to charge in the moonlight overnight. Once charged, you can use it as a cleansing tool – however you please! Some people like to cleanse their crystals with moon water, others will add the charged liquid to their cleaning solutions, and many even water their plants with it.
Note that you should never make moon water during an eclipse because eclipse energy overpowers lunar energy.
What to expect from the July 2021 full moon
A full moon can definitely amplify your emotions, so be warned that you may be called to take responsibility, create boundaries, and confront tensions during this time.
