This is the altar I created in honor of my Goddess Journey Circle. My inner creative goddess has a thing for the colors purple and orange together. Sunrise/sunset colors! Also colors associated with energy and spirituality. I decided to include my orange pomander for its energy, and the candles are surrounded by dried herbs & flowers from my herb garden:
- chamomile~ meditation, calmness, blessing, balance
- lavender~ peace, creativity, healing
- calendula~ dreams, psychic powers
- rose~ love, emotions
- orange~ love, good fortune, divination
- cloves~ ward negativity, spirit companion offering
I chose two cards from the deck for our Goddess circle-- authentic connection and authentic nourishment. This is what I hope I will get from the group and what I hope each of us can give ourselves, as well. The stone on the cards is rose quartz, for friendship and self-love.
If you think you've seen the collage that's on my altar before, yup, you're right. This is a collage I created a couple of years ago when I first began to get in touch with my creative self. I love this collage! It completely expresses the person I am, the person I want to be-- my creative goddess side. It's starting to get a bit faded; I'd like to redo it and frame it, that's how much I like this collage.
I'm sure more will be added, as well as things changed, on this altar during my journey, but for now, this is where I begin.
