So I’ve been in a mad frenzy to re-arange my altars recently. They are always in a constant state of flux to begin with, but I’ve split them off into 3 seperate ones. i used to have one big altar which had every thing on it. This has the advantage of one-stop shopping. All your spiritual stuff is there. The disadvantage is that for those of us who walk multiple paths things tend to collide a bit. So I’m experimenting with having a Horned God/Druid Altar and a Hekate/Witchcraft altar. I’ll see how it works.
Here’s there Horned God/Druid altar:
I wanted it to have a more “primitive” feeling, thus the skulls and stag horns. If my relationship with the Morrigan takes off she’ll probably get a place of honor on this altar too, sharing it with Old Horney. This is where I do most of my Druid work.
This is a the current (unfinished) layout for the Hekate/Witchcraft Altar:
For some reason I couldn’t get a glare free photo, sorry. It’s still not “right”. A bit too cluttered perhaps? It needs work. This is also where my necromancy and spirit work takes place. While I like the aesthetics of having two altars, The disadvantage of this however is the whole “which altar do I work with tonight” feeling. I may end up combing again yet. There are really pros and cons to each set up.
Finally is the Ancestral altar.
It sits atop one of my father tables, which makes it even more suited for being an ancestral altar.Since ancestral work is important in every aspect of my practice this altar is usually lit and active no matter what I’m doing to invite the ancestors into that work and my life.
I happen to really enjoy altar making. I have a few more planned with the limited space I have above a book case ;). I want to make a prosperity altar eventually for money work in a hoodoo style, and I shortly want to try to forge a connection with St.Cyprian of Antioch so he’ll be getting one as well.
