Hi I will write in this article about "how to do altars for Aphrodite,Hera,Hecate and Apollo (deities which I worship).This is how I do altars for them,you can have different methods.
-Statue of Aphrodite
-Symbols of Aphrodite (roses,seashells)
-Red candles and pink candles
-Incense of Love (fire of love powder is good)
On a table put the statue of Aphrodite in middle of it.Around Her you can put candles and incense.
Next to the candles you can put roses,seashells,apples etc.
-Statue of Hera
-A wing of peacock
-Some incense of love are good at Her altar,too.Why?Because She bring peace and love in marriage.
-Candles (red and purple)
On a table,put the statue of Hera in middle of the table.In front of Her put the wing of peacock.
Around Her statue you can put candles and incense
Altar where I do spells,rituals etc.is for Hecate.Why I do that?Because She is a goddess of witchcraft,and I think an altar like that can honor Her.I just put her statue in middle of altar and around her honey and meat.Other objects on altar are for my magical work.
-Statue of Apollo
-Gold candles and green candles
-A music book
-Healing herbs and healing incense
I put the statue of Apollo in middle of the table.Around it golden candles,in corner of table a music book,around the candles healing herbs and incense.Jewelries around healing herbs.
Basic questions about altars dedicated to a deity or more:
1)How an altar can help me in my relationship with a deity?
An altar can improve your relationship with a deity.
2)What I can do at altar?
At an altar you can give offerings,say prayers,do spells or rituals in honor of deity (for example at Apollo's altar you can do healing spells)
3)Where I must put the altar?
It's not very important,but remember an altar is very special for you and for deity.You must take care of it.
4)Only at altars I can give offerings,do rituals and spells in honor of deity?
Of course not,but is better to give offerings at altar.Remember is not very necessary to have an altar for a relationship with a deity.You can worship one without an altar.
