Rain rain come this way, Rain rain go away.
Weather magic has always been part of traditional witches repertoire of tricks. Being magicians of nature, and the walker between the worlds, witches traditionally possessed a very intimate relationship with the natural world around them, and thus, naturally will have a strong rapport with the spirits of Nature.
Thus without further ado, here are some spells to help in your weather rambles. Just remember that all of our actions have consequences, good or bad, and you must take responsibility for your own choices and decisions. Weather magic is not something to be done on whim, and only if you had a real need, it likely won’t work when done on whim either.
A spell to bring rain:
To bring rain to a desired area, get a map (drawn, bought, etc) of the desired location or go to the desired location, a blue candle, some rice, a cauldron of water, rain drawing herbs like broom, fern, corn pollen, and/or pansy (if none of these are available, just using the rice will be fine); your broom (not the plant, the tool), blessing oil or a rain drawing oil.
1. Go to the area you wish to bring rain to, or at a cross roads with a map of the place you wish to bring rain to with all of the tools.
2. Purify the ritual area and yourself, then access the compass round if you feel the need, or draw a ring of protection around you at the very least.
3. Invite the spirits of nature and rain making to aid you in your magic, nature spirits that you have established a rapport to, or the traditional elementals of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. I just generally address the spirits of sky, rain and earth (Divine power) to aid me in my magic, that couple with my own inner witch flame (personal power), and the power of my tools (Earth power) is the driving force behind my magic.
4. State your intent to the spirits you have called upon, as well as the universe at large, and the tools before you. As you use each tool, Cleanse, consecrate, and empower them as needed.
5. Charge the candle, carve it with appropriate symbols that mirror your intent, and dress it with oil from wick to base, drawing towards you as you chant your intent. Light it to add power to your magic, and set the mood, tone, and focus for you spell.
6. Fill your cauldron with water, from a local river if possible, or spring water, but tap water would be fine too. Not collected rain water or bottled water though, because you want the water to be from a flowing moving source. Putting the tap water in a bottle right before the spell to carry to the ritual site is fine.
7. Now begin sprinkling the rice and herbs into the cauldron while chanting and visualizing rain falling on the designated area, starting from a drizzle and working up to the desired degree. Make sure to include a time frame of how long the rain should fall in your chant and when.
8. Continue to focus on rain falling on the designated area in the desired degree and taking your broom, dip it into the cauldron water and begin to sprinkle the water around you in a clockwise manner. Continue chanting as needed, making to include the time frame for how long the rains should fall, and when.
9. Keep on chanting and focus on the rain pouring in the desired amount until you feel your energy has reached a crescendo, then direct and release the energy into the sky, earth or where you feel it is needed. At the moment of release pour the contents of the cauldron onto the floor of the area where it is going to rain, or on the map of the area where it is going to rain, and bring your broom swiftly down upon it.
10. Seal you spell, and give thanks to the spirits with appropriate offerings and praises.
11. Honour the spirits in the usual way, and take down you compass round
12. Clean up.
13. Depart from the ritual site and have faith.
So here’s the spell, enjoy, and happy rain making, but use with discretion.
You can use this spell, or the age old favourite or striking a wet rag on a stone outside while invoking the devil to make rain fall.
Blessings, and be wise,
Until next time 🙂
