I have just updated my page on how to make Herbal Holy Waters specific to the Planetary forces. And, along with that, I thought you might like to see some photos from my most recent efforts to make some. 🙂 These were taken during the last waxing moon, on the days/hours of Luna and Jupiter respectively.
The following two pictures show the plants I gathered for the process. On Monday I gathered nine plants sacred to the Moon: Jasmine, Honeysuckle, Water Lily (inc. Lotus), Juniper, Geranium (Citronella), Willow (Bottle-brush), Spearmint, Aloe, and a couple of other Succulents:
On Thursday I gathered four plants sacred to Jupiter: Cedar, Pine, Bay Laurel, and Honeysuckle:
In each case, my wife and I went out to find these plants in our own hometown. This ensures they are fresh and intimately connected with our own genus loci (local spirits). Then, on the proper planetary hour, I lit a candle of the appropriate color and submerged the green plants into a gallon of pure spring water:
Then, as my daughter or wife held the Bible open for me, I proceeded to read the Psalms I had chosen for the ritual. (I used four Psalms for Jupiter, and nine for Luna.) While I chanted, I proceeded to rip and tear the plants with my bear hands in the water – slowly but surely turning the water opaque with the “blood” of the plants:
Once I simply could not tear or squeeze the plants any further, and the water had become dark, I added in several ounces of Solomonic Holy Water; for an extra blessed kick. 😉 I then allowed the results to sit for some time until the candles had completely burned out. Finally, I poured the finished herbal waters into gallon jugs for storing in the refrigerator. The final picture below is of the finished product as it appears on my Doc Solomon’s website. (The middle bottle is the Lunar Water, and the right-hand bottle is the Jupiter.)
