Altars are used commonly but vary from practice/religion to practice/religion. We use altars as a physical representation of ones practice. This is a powerful tool for a witch to utilize as it houses your magickal space. Altars can also be seen as a sacred space for you to harness and access powerful source energies, the gods, ancestors and the rest of the spirit world and even our own higher self!
What’s on your altar?
On my own personal altar I have many crystals, objects that represent the four elements – air, fire, water and earth as well as candles, tarot cards, etc.
