Altar Tips

  1. You don’t have to get a definitive altar- You can set up an altar only when you need one. You can keep your things in a box.
  2. Wardrobe altar- You can set up your altar in your wardrobe, in case you don’t have space or you are not allowed to have an altar in another place
  3. Bathroom altar- This is also for the case you don’t have liberty to have it somewhere else and you need privacy. This is good for non-definitive altars.
  4. Travel altar/ mini altar- You can create your own version of your altar for travelling, by making it with natural things and in a smaller proportion to fit your bag or you can buy one. There are some cute mini altars available on internet.
  5. Outdoor altar- This one is good for connecting better with nature. Also it’s a good way to the non- definitive altar, because obviously if you leave your things outside someone might take it or the wind and the rain might destroy it.
  6. Kitchen Altar- if you are a kitchen witch, you can set up an altar in your kitchen. It can be with the tools and the position as you wish or you can go the some other traditional set up. 
  7. Garden- If you are into gardening and herbs you can create your whole garden in positions and add tools that represent that place as a sort of sacred/ altar place to perform your magic. Or you can get a recipient and create a mini version of it. The set up and the tools can be as you feel it’s correct for your work. 
  8. Wicca altar- This is the “traditional” set up, that you will find in most wiccan books:
