Altar experiments

27 Jun

 

I had told you about how it seems I never spend any time at my altar, right? And how sabbath dates are always packed with mundane stuff?

Working on fixing that right now.

On Litha, a friend whom I had not seen in months dropped by in town, and of course I had to meet her. I really wanted to celebrate the beginning of summer, but who says there has to be ritual? So instead we got together, invited yet another friend and had dinner together, sitting in front of a café in town. The other friend and I later went in search for cocktails (on which occasion I discovered she has magic breasts ^^ ).

But. The altar. Sigh. I only ever spent time in my room if I have to stash something away or if I have to need the computer.

So now the altar is sitting on my nightstand.

See?

It only holds the basics…

… the heart-shaped stone with the praying/meditating couple…

… a candle, my bonsai, the wooden cat that came to us when Ronja was in surgery and the famous Briar painting of maiden-mother-crone…

… and a tin hare Richard gave me when we went to a medieval fair recently. ^^

In the first picture you can also see an offering bowl with a few fading roses from the bushes in front of our home.

Now, every night when I go to bed, and sometimes in the morning, I light the candle for a few moments. Sometimes I meditate, sometimes I pray, and sometimes I just enjoy the light. (Which sometimes leads to romance. *ahem*)

Who says you cna’t have a busy witchy life?
