Holy Water and its Uses   1 comment

The Key of Solomon provides instructions for the creation of holy water.  (See Book 2, chapter 11 of the Mathers edition.)  It is consecrated on the day and hour of Mercury, making it well suited to the Mercurial focus of that grimoire.  It can also be used anywhere generic holy water is called for in a spell.

Another option is to simply obtain holy water from a local Church.  In fact, there is quite an elaborate tradition surrounding such water.  We see it here and there in the grimoires – such as the Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses, which calls for Three Kings holy water (or water used during an Epiphany Mass on January 6th, Three Kings Day).  However, we can find much more of this kind of thing in Afro-Caribbean and Catholic influenced traditions such as Palo, Voodoo, Hoodoo, Curandero, etc.

The following information was posted to the EvocationalMagics yahoo group by Aghor Pir.  It is compiled from various systems of Palo  (Monte, Mayombe, Kimbisa, etc.)

I was taught the following:

Holy Water: Cleansing, Exorcism and Consecrating, Protection from the Evil Eye

Florida Water: Cleansing, Harmonising, Blessing, and Calming spirits

In Palo it also matters where you get your Holy Water when it comes to what you
can do with it.

Cleansing, Exorcism and Consecrating, Protection from Evil Eye
