Making shrine for Brigid? By: glowyrocks May 21, 2015

I was wondering if there was anyone else on here who worked with the goddess Brigid, and if so, how can I set up a shrine for Her? I have a few things that I set up, but I'm not happy with it. All I have is a brideog, a candle, and an arrow sitting on a Brigid's Cross, and I want something a bit more elaborate. Any ideas?

Check out thrift stores for incense burners and clean them up with toothpaste and vinegar to get rid of tarnish. Try to get 3 similar ones or one with 3 legs. Get a cloth with some celtic looking patterns on it to place your items on. If possible, some deer antlers or cow horns wound be good. You could use air dry clay to make a statue of her, or modify a statue of Mary.
At my house, I have an altar. If you want to make a shrine to Brigid, try thinking about what parts of her ring true to you. She is a very eclectic goddess, so this shouldn't be too hard. On mine, I have recently aquired a statue of her. I also put acorns on it, an iron paperweight bird, crystals, candles, and I also have my pliars on there for her work as a goddess of blacksmithing.
So, three major aspects of her are the Hearth, Forge, and Magic. So put on there what makes you feel at home. I have Rosemary essential oils because my mom used to grow rosemary plants behind our house. I also have incense because the smell makes me feel at home. I have my pliars for her strength. And I made myself some prayer beads that I meditate with every now and then.
In short, what about her do you truly love? What parts of her empower you and what parts of her encompass your life? Answer these, and you know what to put on your altar :D
