Rain water indicates water fallen without thunder or lightning.
I’m going to separate rain into three categories, based upon the strength at which it falls, in order to explain my personal associations.
1. A Light Mist:
- A brief cooling down. (ex. Resting your energy on a project.)
- Encouraging blossoming. (ex. Promoting new talents.)
- To make wet, or lubricate. (ex. To get projects moving along.)
- Cleansing. (ex. Cleaning a room after sickness.)
- Washing away obstacles. (ex. Push aside the challenges that discourage your creativity.)
- Promoting growth. (ex. Learning a lesson.)
- Banishing negativity. (ex. Ridding negative habits and people from your life.)
- Erasing. (ex. Ridding memories.)
- Flooding. (ex. Overwhelming feelings, or strong increase in inspirations.)
You don’t have to limit yourself to collecting the water in a jar, and waiting for another day to use it. Keep it as simple or as advanced as you wish. You can write down a project you’d like to move along, and allow a misty rain to wet it. Write all of your obstacles down on a chalkboard, wet a paper towel in medium rain, and wash them away. Soak pictures of memories you no longer want to keep.

I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.
