SACERD SPACE THAT HOLDS TOOLS & OFFERINGS
An Altar is a sacred space used by witches. It is an area that holds all your tools, decorations, & offerings. It is used to help you focus & set your intention for rituals, ceremonies & spellcasting.
Your Altar can be either permanent or seasonal. Some witches will dedicate their altar to a deity, others set it up for the upcoming Sabbath or for a specific spell or ritual.
Traditionally an Altar has a basic layout which is depicted bellow.
But altars are as varied as the witches who use them. The most powerful altar is one you create yourself. Whether it be a small corner or windowsill with a few crystals or an entire bookshelf full of herbs, books, magical tools & idols, it's your space so make it personal. Here are some beautiful examples from witches in our community.
