Rain Dance

You’ll need a blue candle for this dance. It helps if you wear something green or have a bouquet of fresh herbs with you.

Go outside during the first full moon. Center yourself, and let the cares of the day drift away. Breathe in slowly and then exhale. Light the candle and raise it up high towards the sky. The blue candle represents Father Sky and his beautiful color. If you’re wearing green, tell your mother the Earth that you proudly wear her fertile color.  If it is the herb bouquet you have chosen to represent Earth, place the bouquet over your heart and thank her for the honor of being on her surface.

Stare at the sky and open your eyes — your spirit eyes — and look around at all you see. Bless the moon, and the countless beautiful stars in the night sky. Focus your energy and believe that you feel a few drops of rain. Invoke your trusted god or goddess, whomever they may be. Raise your left hand upward towards the sky, while holding the candle in your right hand.

Then repeat this slowly – three times:

Waters from the sky, let it be, I ask thee now, I ask of all, for life-giving rain to fall, as my will, so mote it be.”

After you have made the invocation, slowly sway from side to side while chanting a song or humming a melody — something you believe will please the rain clouds. End the rain dance (swaying) with a blessing of gratitude.

Blow out the candle and wait for the rain to fall.

Blessed be, sweet ones.
