Understanding the Magic of Water

Water is associated with the powers of birth and regeneration, representing the emotions and healing energy. Ancient people built their settlements close to the life giving springs and streams that became the source of several magical traditions. Even today rivers such as the Ganges are considered sacred and bathing in its water is believed to cure sickness.

In Celtic traditions, wells, lakes and rivers were worshipped and venerated. Offerings were dropped into the watery depth in return for blessings a ritual that survives today in the form of the wishing well.

Tides of Change

Pulled by the Moon, the tides of water help you to attune to change. The unpredictability of the waves can be overwhelming, however, and it’s for this reason that water brings powerful emotions to the surface, where they can be purged. Working with water in your magic increase your sensitivity and emotional awareness, and gently renews your faith in the universe. Working with water in your magic can cleanse and restore the spirit, by bringing what is hidden to the surface.

Water in Myth and Legend

  • Clouties – An ancient tradition called “well dressing” still continues in parts of Britain. Coloured cloths called “clouts” are tired to tree branches overhanging the village well. These represent people’s wishes and petitions to the water spirits for healing.
  • Sea Spirits – There are many mythological creatures associated with water such as the mermaid or kelpie. The mermaids song was an ill omen because it foretold of shipwreck, while the kelpie drowned mortals.
  • Water Goddess – Throughout the world, legend tells of a water goddess who controls the rivers and seas, such as the Japanese Toyota Mahime, Brazilian Oshun and Indian Savari.

The kelpie was an evil water spirit that preyed on vulnerable mortals.

      Thank you Amber. Water is often thought of as the most essential of the Elements for sustaining life. Humans, of course, cannot live without it, and the same is true of animals and plant life. Before the advent of roads, water provided humans with the most efficient means of travel, and it is still host to one quarter of the biodiversity found on Earth. Associated with the Moon, psychic abilities, dreams, and the realm of emotions, the Water Element is a shape-shifter, moving easily throughout the world by following the path of least resistance.

  2. Water means so much more than the mere quenching of our thirst. Water is incorporated into nature’s overall kaleidoscope.
