After some minor room re-arrainging my altar has a bit of a new look, so, with some prompting from Hibuscus Moon to share our altars, I thought I would post it. Since my photography leaves alot to be desired, I'll give you the "guided tour": My illuminated Hecate idol is the centerpiece, with two small candle holders on each side. I still have some Samhain oil left in the two small oil lamps on each side, in front of the candle holders. I have the crescent moon oil / incense burner on the far left, which I've had for about 15 years (in spite of my hyper kitty!). In front of the cresecent moon are my tarot cards, and a small journal I keep notes in from my readings. And on the far right is my rosemary sachet. This is the typical set up, except for some minor changes, if I am doing something specific. The absolutely blank wall in the background is just waiting patiently for the right piece that calls out to me. So far, the blank wall gets my attention, almost to the point of distraction. I just can't resist a "blank palate". For me, it's worse than money burning a hole in my pocket. But I want to take my time and be rather selective about what I mount there. So for now, it is just what it is. I may put a mirror up until the just right piece finds it's home there.
I would love to see other's altars too.
*Peace and Blessings*
