We are expecting a storm this afternoon, possibly late and into the evening and it should be a good one as it’s been 30-40 degrees all week! I thought this might be a good time to put down my thoughts on collecting rain water for witchy type uses. I’m not quite sure what type of rain will be falling today, but it doesn’t take much to put out a few water containers to collect just in case. If it turns out to be water I already have plenty of, I can water the plants with it or cleanse some tools.
What I am hoping to collect today is rain from a thunderstorm as it is said to retain the energy of the storm aiding your spell work, practice or intent with extra “juice”, especially for spells of empowerment. If I happen to stumble upon some hail that would be great to collect as well… Hopefully just not on the hood of my vehicles or trampled all over my garden :).
I found a couple fab articles on the internet about the use of rain water in witchcraft:
