Do I need to have a home altar?

While it is not absolutely necessary, it is preferable to have a designated place in which to work.  A sacred space where you keep your tools and items that are special to you will set your magick away from the mundane and help you to perform on a higher plane. 

Finding Sacred Space

The first thing you need to do is to determine the location where you will build your Altar. It should be in an area of your home where you can work in private without interruption. Any room in the home will do, but you want to choose a spot where you can go and separate yourself from household activity.

The Altar Base

This could be a small table, a cart, a shelf, a trunk. Anything with a flat surface will work. Ideally, you should have at least 1 x 2 feet on which to work.

Items to place on the Altar

Candles, Crystals, Chalice, Cauldron, Censor/Burner, Athame, Altar Tile, Bell, Cards, Photos, Wand, Celtic Cross or Crucifix, Statues, Seasonal Items, and anything else you desire.

When you are satisfied with the appearance of your Altar, you are done.

Make sure you keep the Altar clean and dust-free. It is also appropriate to change the Altar arrangement from time to time. This is your sacred space. Build it to suit your needs and to honor the father, the mother and the son.
