Actual direct sunlight is often considered very dangerous and destructive for alchemical substances. Moonlight, on the other hand, is much more subtle and constructive. Thus our water is exposed in the open air during nights when the moon is full, the winds are light, and the sky is clear.
Yes ... I have seen this point of view mentioned many times over the years, but I'm not a follower
of this practice for the Great Work.

Though I do believe it is of assistance in the Test protocol.

Venus / "HIM" is most potent with an enormous amount of Energy.

When we consider transmuting 1KG of lead (Pb) to gold (Au) the huge concentration of Energy
that is required for this work with just a small piece of the Stone.

Do you have any ideas as to where this massive amount of Energy might come from ?
