Altar
By:
Post # 1
So I'm rather new to Norse Paganism but I've done research and decided the deities I feel most connected to are Loki and Hel. I made an altar to start me off as well as doing offerings, lighting candles, burning incense and a small prayer as well as a letter that I burnt. I've put a few things on the altar that I think links to them both well.
However the problem is that I don't have enough space for two different altars. So they share a shelf but are separated down the middle. Hel on the left, Loki on the right. They also have two different offering boxes but share a white candle, evil eye bracelet and two runes.
Does this matter? I ask because I read that most deities don't want to share an altar with Hel because she is mostly linked to death. I'm sure Loki wouldn't mind because she's his daughter but I'm just checking.
Also does this make me more of an Lokean or Norse Pagan?
Thanks everyone. :)

Not to be confusing, but Lokeans are still considered Norse pagans. Lokeans are just a branch off the Norse pagan tree. If anything, I'd say it makes you closer to a Rokkatruar (since they are two of the main Rokkr deities). You really don't have to worry about labels too much, however, unless you want to.

I actually don't think either would mind the set up that you have. As you mentioned, so you already know, Hel is Loki's daughter and he loves her- especially because she is linked to death. He is a chaotic deitiy, and the god of change so he moreso than many other deities would understand his daughter's role in the grand scheme of things.

You could always try to divine from them whether or not they approve, but based from my past experiences with both I don't think you have anything to worry about.
