From Saturday onwards I will officially live in just one place again! yay!
Therefore, my altar once again needs to be packed up and transported to a new place. This year I am taking the set of drawers that it sits upon too! This means that I have a large, practical surface to work on (instead of having to delegate my altar to a shelf like last year, which I hated and my practice suffered as a result) and storage space below to keep candles and other supplies. I am hoping that my spiritual practice will flourish as I will have a level of privacy and open space that I have never had the pleasure of before now!
I am also hoping to buy some kind of small corner unit to house some mini shrines. One for my ancestors (I don’t feel comfortable honouring them on the same shrine as the theoi), one for Hermes and one for Hera.
Hera has been getting my attention for a few weeks now. I see her name and symbols everywhere! Other people have actually started to notice too. I have given her honour for a few years now, but not in an immensly deep or personal sense. She’s also a goddess who I have always felt ‘attracted’ to, but I have not pursued this. Today I went into a charity shop on a whim and found this lovely bowl:
Naturally, I bought it for Hera and I intend to use it as an offering bowl just for her.
