I am preparing for my ritual this night, gazing out my window & watching the rain pool around my Magickal Herb garden. Having pleaded with the Cloud Beings for most of the afternoon, I have resigned to the fact that I will not be viewing the eclipse that is predicted to grace our skies this evening. So, I redirect my Water Blessing ritual, which seems to be supported by the amount of Water falling from Father Sky. Instead of having the reflected light of Grandmother Moon I will be gathering rain Water that has reached the earthing phase of its ancient cycle. I will ask this Water to grant me the wisdom of its memories & the reflection of its past & especially its ability to transform and yield and soften so that it may journey to many amazing and sacred places. I give thanks to the Cloud Beings for showing me the way to gather & hold the energy of Water and for transforming my ritual to align with the space & time in which I find myself this Full Moon night.
