Lady of Avalon altar
In my daily meditation with the Cailleach yesterday she put me into the very capable hands of the Lady of Avalon - yup now a lot of things have fallen into place LOL!
When I know I will be working with a specific deity for a while I like to set up an altar in their honour, one that I can work at and meditate at.
I did initially think about adding another altar (I can hear my hubby cringing) but as I already have a few I had to get creative.
Option one was right in front of me, literally...I have a large dresser that has quite a deep cupboard part to it that I keep all my tarot and oracle cards in, after a bit of a shuffle round I made the space I needed. Added a bit of coloured material, some flowers (from our engagement cake actually) and a candle that I have made specifically for my meditations with the Lady and voila! One cupboard altar.
And I liked it, but it wasn't quite right.
More shuffling round of ornaments, books, candles - you name it, I moved it! And I ended up with the tarot and oracle cards back in their cupboard and my usual everyday working altar now decorated ready to work with the Lady of Avalon.
And I am quite pleased with this one too, maybe not quite so dramatic but way more practical (can't really light a candle in a cupboard now can I?).
Looking forward now to my journey with the Lady.
