Merry Meet all!
My altar is set up in my bedroom right by my window. And every morning i open my blinds and curtains just before sun rises so that when it does, the light hits my altar. I look at it as a cleansing sort of ritual for my altar to get rid of negativity. I don't open my window because i am unsure whether the outside air would be good to let in at this time or not. I wanted your opinion on that and whether the whole sun things a good idea or not. Thanks to all who answer :)

I definitely think this is a great idea :)
I have a personal altar that sits right up against a window, and I open the window as soon as the sun is up, and close the window when the sun goes down- I like the sun to touch my altar, to warm the wood, and to cleanse it. (I wouldn't open the window depending on the atmosphere, the type of wood or material the altar is made from, the moisture in the air, etc)
I also think, depending on what you use the altar for, it can have benefits. When I do work with fire, I like the sun to be directly involved. To each their own- but it's a yes from me.

I know this is an old post, My altar is set on the east side of the room opposite of the north side in back of my altar is a huge mirror, when the sun comes out it hits the mirror and it reflects on the altar is just beautiful to see.
It gives it the energy It needs.
