Witchy Wednesday on Friday

I’ve been taking Wednesdays and Thursdays off. I forgot to schedule a W.W. before I took off (I only have internet at work).

This week I will be sharing my Samhain altar. My old altar was on a built in dresser which became hard to work at since I had to stand at it. I like to actually do most of my spell work at my altar so I wanted to move it some place that I could sit down and work. I already had the perfect spot.

I was using this pink thing as my “Meditation Station” so I just decided to turn it into my main altar. It’s a lot smaller than my old space, but it’s a lot more practical.

I also already this cushion in front of it. I don’t know why I didn’t just make this my altar space from the beginning.

The little space below actually pulls out. That’s where I keep my divination things (tarot cards, runes, pendulum) and scriptures.

I don’t really like to put too much decorations on my altar for the Sabbats. I’ll using just put little things here and there that represent the Sabbat. I also like to make them useful if I can. I bought this baby pumpkin at Publix and used melted beeswax to draw on runes. I even put my pewter panther on top.

My sister painted me a Jack and Sally ATC. She likes to put them on the back of playing cards.

Found some acorns for Samhain. They represent growth and potential. Perfect for the new year.

Here’s a picture of my grandmother (left) who passed in 2001. This is her sister who just passed last month. In front of the picture are my apple seeds I’ve been collecting. Might use them for a spell or something. Not sure yet.

This is a picture of my aunt (my dad’s sister) in her prom dress. She and I never got along when she was alive. My dad recently gave me one of her journals though. As I’ve been reading it, I’ve realized we actually have a lot in common. That’s probably why we always butt heads.

Another picture of my grandmother next to my Laughing Buddha (Hotei) who is wearing my Pagan Prayer/meditation beads.

Well that’s my new altar location. I like it a lot better and I use it a lot more.

Question: Where do you keep your altar?
