Rain magick

It started raining about half an hour ago.

Carpe diem ... or aquam, in this case. I ran outside, stood in pentagram position, cupped my hands and turned them up to catch the water, chanting over and over, "Bring it down, bring it in, bring it through, more rain, more rain, more rain". As my hands filled I poured out the water on the earth, visualising myself as a conduit between the sky and the ground. I did this for about half an hour, and I'm now thoroughly soaked. What an incredible feeling - and to think I'd almost forgotten how good it felt to be out in the rain.

How much effect it will have on this crushing drought remains to be seen. It's still raining lightly now, and I don't know how much longer it will last. But the important thing is, it's raining. And while I stood there, I imagined hundreds of us, all standing out under the night sky on the cracked, hard ground, all pulling down the rain with our will.

In a few days time we start even tighter water restrictions. Here's hoping.
