One of My Altar Set Ups

20150504_130829

I set up this altar as an example and for cleansing my new small cauldron. on it is starting with the pentagram, I made this out of branches from five different trees (Red Maple, Sliver Mapel, Pine, Mulberry and Crabapple ) in my yard it is knotted together with my hair I gathered from my hair brush then covered each know with white glue. For the God symbol the r are pine cones. The Goddess is represented by a birds nest holding a small fake bird, silk rose buds in various colors and 2/3 of a bird egg shell. I found the egg she’ll broke open under the Crabapple tree. I cover it inside and out with white glue to give it some strength. For the elements there is an Angel  (actually made as a yule tree topper) for Spirit, an incense burner and Blue Jay feather for Air, a candle in a holder my husband and I bought on a vacation for Fire, a suppose to be volvite candle holder that has salt and a stone for Earth, and another suppose to be volvite candle holder with melted snow for Water. To the right is my Athena closest to pentagram and sword to its right. On the left is Mt Red Maple wand closest to the pentagram and my personal candle. My candle was inscribed using the Ogham alphabet with my witch name (it is different then my pen name on here) dedicating it to help me to stay centered when it is lit, and help in anyway it needs to during a ritual. The wine glass on the right contains juice and small plate on left holds crackers. These are an offering to the God and Goddess I inked to help cleanse my things and for my celebration after the ritual.
