Travel Altar

I recently had to head to the hospital for surgery, and I packed up a travel altar so that I could continue practicing even while I was away from home. As you can see I brought...

  • My silver pentacle necklace.
  • My tiny besom that I made.
  • The handfasting cord from our wedding.
  • A seashell to represent water.
  • A container filled with soil from my witch's garden to represent earth.
  • A blue jay feather my wife found to represent air.
  • A candle to represent fire.

I celebrated the new moon away from home, and it was nice to have some of my tools with me. My practice doesn't require them; all I need is quiet and solitude to practice. However they made me feel more at home during a stressful time.
