A few days ago I’ve written some thoughts about the Seven of bows – Clearance from the Wildwood tarot. Especially about how hard it is to clear away the old for something unknown to take its place. That’s just plain scary. This has lead up to my decision to clear my altar. Over time is has been gathering more and more symbols, and all sorts of clutter and its very representable for my own spiritual confusion and uncertainties
|My cleared altar|
So yesterday afternoon I took a basket and put everything that was on my altar in it.
Then I put a white clothe over it to represent a new beginning. The most important is the candle in the chalice which represents the Divine and the cards. For now these are: “Wide open” From The Enchanted Map Oracle and “Wolf - Instincts” from The Earth Magic Oracle. I’ve picked them face up. Some crystals and shells to represent my openness for change and last, but certainly not least my skeleton key for opening doors.
Perhaps over time I will add something but only if I feel I really have to. It is so strange and unfamiliar in my room but I am glad I've done it. This altar gives me a sense of space and peace which is very soothing for now
