I tried to tell Quincy that we were standing in front of natural treasure and that we should appreciate it. He continued to pose with this vaguely indifferent expression, effectively rendering all of my photos useless.
Here’s a list I’ve compiled for different types, places, and times to collect water and charged waters. I use these primarily for different energies to paint with but the information can be used in a variety of ways to fit your practice.
💧 Rain: cleansing, protection, energy (if collected during a sun shower it is also associated with balance and the first rain in the month of May (Aqua de Mayo is considered to bring good health, luck, and eliminate dark entities )
💧 Creek/Stream: purification, harmony
💧Dew: Health, eyesight, beauty
💧 Fog/Mist: Creativity, balance, partnerships
💧 Ice: Transformation, balance, creativity💧 Pond/Lake: peace, contentment, relaxation, self reflection
💧 River: moving forward, protection
💧Sea/Ocean: health, power, goal manifestation
💧 Snow: Transformation, balance
💧 Spring Water: growth, cleansing, protection, prosperity
💧 Swamp/Waste: Banishing, binding
💧 Waterfalls: power, energy, success
💧Well: healing, wishes, intuition
☔ Seasonal Rains☔
These are specific associations for rains collected on the day or night of a solstice or equinox which make them more rare.
💧 Spring: New Ventures
💧 Summer: Growth
💧 Autumn: Gratitude
💧 Winter: Blessing
🌙 Moon Water🌙
In general water charged under the moon is considered sacred to the goddess and is associated with feminine energies and intuition. Here are some associations with the specific phases:
🌑New/Dark: curses, banishing, divination🌘Waxing Crescent: attraction, wealth, success
🌗 First Quarter: creativity, motivation
🌖 Waxing Gibbous: good health, attraction
🌕 Full Moon: Healing, cleansing, clarity
🌔 Waning Gibbous: undoing, cleansing
🌓 Last Quarter: breaking bad habits, banishing
🌒 Waning Crescent: wisdom, illness, balance
📝 Note: you can also charge your water under full moons that correspond to your intentions. Examples- full flower moon for fertility, beauty, and feminine energy or full moon in Aquarius for the added associations.
🔆 Sun Water: (Water charged from dawn til dusk) positivity, energy, power, strength, masculine energy.
🌹 Rose Water: (Either rain, dew, or snow collected from roses or condensation collected from boiling roses) love, protection, commitment, beauty, compassion
💀 Gravestones: (water collected from grave sites) ease of loss, restfulness, burying or releasing feelings.
🏛 Monuments: (water collected at monument sites) remembrance, nostalgia, patriotism, loss
🌈 Rainbow: (Water collected during a sun shower while a rainbow is present) luck, wealth, happiness, fulfillment, positivity.
I hope this helps you guys! As always, listen to your intuition about the energy of a particular water you have collected and remember to charge it with your specific intent.

So this fic is going to be loosely based around the Rapunzel fairy tale. I once read a Loki/Reader fanfiction based on Beauty and the Beast and it still is - even today - one of my favourite fanfictions. I’m doing a similar thing and basing my work on a fairytale, whilst incorporating a similar relationship dynamic as seen in Beauty and the Beast. Overall it’s a big fairytale mashup with everyone’s favourite little shit as the damsel in distress. I really hope you guys enjoy it! Please leave feedback. I appreciate any and all comments. Enjoy, my darlings!
‘The Tower’ (Part 1)
Once upon a time, in a long-forgotten part of a long-forgotten forest, a swaying stretch of grass – once untarnished and lush – had been corrupted by a great, gleaming monument. Where once the soil was warmed by the sun, ice as cold as the night lay in the cracks of the wounded earth, stretching up to the sky and culminating in a pointed tip.
At the centre of this secluded glade sat a tall and ominous tower…
