my Altar decoration for Beltane.
My Imbolc altar
this is completely amazing and perfect.
A #goddessbottle for my #patroness, Nyx. It has fix bones, black glitter and stars, a miniature crow, some coal, and a few other things. These are great for more obscure deities who don’t have things like statues or the like, for an #altar

My Gnostic Mass inspired corner altar. No longer in use, but a pretty altar all the same. hen I moved in I found I had the most wonderful loft space office with a shelf unit/ table that comes to about waist height when kneeling and above two shelves. For a long time I have not kept a permanent altar for a number of reasons, being its obviousness and the unwanted attention it can bring. I have decided to designate my office ‘private space’ and to establish an altar and ‘working room’. My altar is a scaled down imagination of the high altar in Aleister Crowley’s Gnostic Mass. This ritual, and the ideas expressed in it are central to Thelema, and although new and innovative ritual forms are being created, the Gnostic Mass has an enduring and special place within me. I suppose having witnessed several Masses the poetry and symbolism spoke to me.
On my altar is my thoth tarot, candles, my censer, cup, the enochian tablet of union and various items of power (fetishes, talismen etc). Leaning in in the periphery my ‘Set Staff’ and the hilt of my sword can be seen. There are also red roses, which as well as a part of the Gnostic mass altar, are also a meaningful personal symbol.On the level above is the Book Of The Law flanked by 12 candles and again some items of power. At the top are 8 candles and an image of the stele of revealing, which has a central importance in Thelema, and to me. In the long run I would hope to get or make a proper stele for this position.On the periphery of the picture you can catch the corners of two of the four enochian Watchtowers. You can also sees my very old PC in the periphery which is a major magickal implement (and handy record keeper).

The beginning of my altar :) Needs a lot of work but looking forward to setting it up now I’m settled somewhere :)
Taken of my altar just before cleansing and redoing it for Samhain. Offerings are in thanks for keeping The Boyfriend and I safe during FrankenSandy.
Any questions about what’s on the altar, just ask, though I reserve the right to not answer if
you’re being a prickit’s too personal.
