Water is the element which governs our emotions, our feelings, our moods. It’s ever changing, often unpredictable but necessary to life. On a physical level we can survive only a matter of days without water. We also curl up and die on the inside if our emotions are not nurtured.
From a magickal perspective these are the things you need to know about water:
- Direction is West
- Gender is Feminine
- Season is Autumn
- Colour is Blue
- Elemental Spirit is the Undine
- Astrological Signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces
So how can you bring water rituals into your daily life? It’s not hard to do and I bet you’ve already adopted some water rituals without realising it! Showers and baths serve as ways of washing ourselves clean on a symbolic as well as physical level. Saying a blessing over a glass of water before drinking it is another great way of working with the water element. And don’t forget the toilet! If you’ve got something bothering you write it down on some loo paper and flush your worries away!
