An altar under construction for Morrigan

Hi,

I thought I'd share a bit of my journey with Morrigan.

For several months I had a much stronger calling from Morrigan (aka The Morrigan) compared to when I was a kid. Looking back at that time, She had been reaching out to me but I wasn't able to respond due to ignorance about various pagan paths and being involved with Christianity.

Now that I'm able to begin a relationship with Her, I felt guided to build an altar for Her. The purpose of the altar is to meditate in front of it. In Druidry, altars aren't used as much as they are in Wicca so I looked at a lot of wonderful altars made by Wiccans to gain inspiration from them. I got a bunch of ideas for the altar which came to me at about 1am one night. I suspect She had given me such inspiration.

The market doesn't have much of what She wants for an altar so I have to craft some special items. So far, I have these for a beginning which I collected under Morrigan's guidance.




The brown bear will stay as is because Morrigan wants it to represent Her. The bear symbolizes earth energy.

The purple candles symbolize psychic development and the blue candles symbolize spiritual development which I suppose Morrigan will help me with those.

The glass bottles will be spray painted black and be used for moon water and moon salt. I have yet to find decent crow feathers to craft a consecration tool. The salt symbolizes land, the water is for the sea and the feathers are the sky.

The plate will be spray painted black then decorated. I hope I can draw the Celtic cross (the even armed one) well.

That's it for now.

Yesterday, I took the plate and a can of spray paint outside. Soon as I got the first coat started, I noticed I had the wrong colour. I accidentally bought brown spray paint instead of black. It's not a big deal but I have to buy more spray paint so this little project is on hold for now.

Very beautiful Chrysalis. I currently don't have much space for an altar. All I have is a table bed in the corner of a camper at the moment with a small nightstand next to it. I currently use a mirrored tray on the nightstand as a space to place offerings to deity.

Thank you SaturninePluto.

I find that any flat surface can be used for altars no matter how small it is. I read that some people make mobile altars that fit inside altoid tins or small boxes. The idea there is that a portable altar easily fits inside a backpack, a suitcase, etc. so it won't take up too much space.

In my case, I have a folding table and the only colour it came in is red. One item I do want to get is black cloth which means I have to sew. Since I don't know how to sew it'll be a learning experience. I can either look at youtube videos or go into town to a quilting store for sewing lessons.

I kinda like the plate as is, with all the pretty flowers. :) But you must do what you feel is necessary. In general, I really like the idea of using a plate for an altar.

I did a quick google search and the plate is called a pentacle plate. I suppose the terminology would be from Wicca. From what I understand, the plate is placed on the altar and is used to consecrate other altar tools.

Since my path is Druidry, I plan on drawing an even arm Celtic Cross instead of a pentacle.

The flat surface I'm using for the actual altar is a folding table.

Ah okay. Regardless, it seems nice so far. :) You take nice photos. I really like the little bear!
