After rearranging some things around the apartment, I have a way bigger, nicer table at my disposal for use as an altar. I know exactly how I want it to be, and, while I keep my eyes peeled for thrift-store finds and opportunities to trade for the things I’d like, I’ve also been doing some Etsy window shopping. The supplies don’t make the witch, but I am at a point where I have the space to devote to a beautiful place that feels right to practice in.
I have a short list of things I’m considering getting for myself, but I did find a bunch of other things I thought you might like:
Moon Goddess Meditation Beads — $30
I’m pretty tactile. The stone I use the most often for meditation is perfect for me because it has an indentation that perfectly fits my grip, and the crystal face nearest my thumb is covered in tiny “barnacles” I can rub. So, as you can probably surmise, I like prayer beads a lot as an aid to meditation. This set is comprised of sodalite, rainbow moonstone, blue chalcedony and venus jasper, and I think it’s gorgeous. (Though, I admit, it was kind of a toss-up between this set, the Greenman set, and the night sky set!) Source.
Custom Astrological Constellation Tarot or Altar cloth — $30
While astrological signs don’t figure heavily in my practice or daily life, they do for a lot of other people. This silk tarot/altar cloth is handmade and can be customized with up to 3 constellations of your choice. Source.
Wood Burned Pentacle Altar Tile – Decor — $25
Isn’t this pyrography pretty? This woodburned tile can be used as an altar tile, as wall art, or displayed on a small easel. I love the designs in this shop! Source.
Ritual manifestation candle — $15
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy this shop? They use soy wax in their pillar candles, and have a pretty good variety of intentions available. Since I’m planning on getting a few for myself, I contacted the seller to ask about any ingredients I react to. I received a friendly, helpful response less than an hour later. Source.
Above Door/Shelf Sitter — $38
Mirrors are an excellent way to deflect baneful magick from you or your home — I’ve used them that way plenty of times. This little shelf/door sitter is a beautiful, discreet way to ward your home. Source.
Moon Incense – All Natural loose incense blend for ritual — $13
Loose incense will, I think, forever occupy a spot in my heart. There’s something about carefully adding incense to charcoal pinch by pinch that you don’t get from lighting a cone or a stick. This is even more true with magickal incense. To quote the seller, “This magickal incense was blended in a sacred circle during the Full Harvest Moon and Lunar Eclipse on September 16th 2016. This blend was blessed with the magickal properties of Moonstone on my altar, while soaking up the Moon’s energy. I have used only the finest all natural resins, botanicals, and essential oils.” This blend contains frankincense, myrrh, copal, benzoin, sandalwood, white willow bark, lavender, jasmine flowers, palo santo, sandalwood essential oil, lemon essential oil, and frankincense essential oil.
