When I first heard of moon water, I was convinced it was related to my moon cycle. I got it partially right, the lunar cycle that is. If you've been following along, I've been sharing with you various ritual practices and tools to help support your manifestation practices.

That's where moon water manifestation comes in. Take the power of the lunar cycles, your intention, and add it to the magic of water, and you've got moon water. This energized medium can aid you in manifesting desires, goals, and positive changes in your life by bringing focused lunar energy to your goals.

What is Moon Water?

Honestly, the origins of creating moon water as a ritual practice is a mystery to me… when did this practice begin in the collective? I tried to find the answer, as my curious mind likes to reference historical information, but didn't find anything “official”. I can tell you that using water as a medium and tool for cleansing, blessings, and rituals is not new…. think holy water, Florida water, and spiritual or religious blessings such as baptisms.

In the simplest of explanations, moon water is water infused with intention and charged with lunar energy.

Benefits of Moon Water

In the realm of lunar manifestation, there are two main principles to consider: intention and attunement to the lunar cycle. These two principles influence the energy captured in your water container, directly impacting the benefits and use of your moon water.

Positivity vs. negativity, and the intention you set for your environment and ritual tools truly matters.

Think of this lunar-charged vessel as your connection to your intentions and goals. Use your Moon Water to help you with:

  • Your Spiritual Growth: You may find that incorporating Moon Water into your spiritual routine enhances personal introspection and growth.
  • Energetic Cleansing: Use your moon water with the intention to purify and cleanse your aura or personal space of negative energy.
  • As a Manifestation Aid: By focusing your intentions during the creation of your Moon Water, you strengthen the power of your manifestations.

How to Make Moon Water

Now we get to the magic portion of things, and honestly, my favorite. Making your first or second moon water is a fun experience. You get to be super intentional about what you want to focus on and call into your life.

Tip: Get creative and look at your birth chart to determine what needs support.

Let's do this!

1. Gather Your Materials

Before you begin, assemble the following items to make your moon water:

  • A container: Preferably a glass jar with a lid to prevent contaminants. I like to use recycled and cleansed thrifted canning jars with smaller lids.
  • Filtered or spring water: To fill your jar. Think clean and uncontaminated water.
  • A clean workspace: Ensure the area is free of clutter and has a window or outdoor space to place your jar under the moonlight.

2. Choose the Right Moon Phase

Next up is determining when you want to create your moon water. Each moon phase has a different energy for manifestation, meaning, some phases are better for setting new intentions vs. releasing.

This is when you need to determine your goals. Are you looking to start a new goal, or are you seeking to amplify the energy of an existing effort?

  • Full Moon: For releasing what no longer serves you, and celebrating your awesome self.
  • New Moon: Ideal for new beginnings and setting new goals.

3. Infuse Moon Water with Your Intention

Words matter, and speaking the intention for your moon water tells your subconscious, the Universe, and the water what it is you're seeking and intending with this sacred ritual tool.

Clearly state your intention as you prepare the moon water:

  1. Focus on a specific goal or desire, and begin filling up your glass jar.
  2. Hold the jar in your hands and verbally express your intention or write it on a piece of paper and place it under the jar.
  3. Seal the jar.
  4. Label your jar with the date and any other words you wish to associate with this moon water.
  5. Get ready to charge up the moon water!

4. Charge the Water Under the Moonlight

Ok, we got our first principle covered, Intention. Now, let's cover the next big and final step in creating your moon water. It's time to charge it up with lunar energy juice!

Place your jar where it will receive direct moonlight:

  • Outdoors: On the ground or a surface with clear exposure to the moon.
  • Indoors: On a windowsill that gets ample moonlight.

Leave the jar to charge overnight, allowing the lunar energy to imbue the water with your intention.

TIP: Remove the jar before sunrise to preserve the moon's influence.

Preserving and Storing Moon Water

To effectively preserve moon water, selecting an appropriate container is paramount. Choose a glass jar with a tight-sealing lid to prevent contaminants and maintain purity. Your choice of vessel preserves the energy of the moon water and limits exposure to external elements.

My preference is vintage blue glass jars (you can sometimes find them on eBay or Etsy). Plain and clear jars work too.

When storing your moon water:

  • Location Matters: Store in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight to preserve its energetic properties.
  • Temperature Consistency: Avoid areas where temperatures fluctuate, as extreme changes can alter moon water containing additives such as essential oils, water-resistant stones, ritual salts, etc.
