Samhain altar. And, no, it’s not too early for Samhain.
A lot of changes have occurred since my last picture. I moved it back to the table in front of my window because it faces east. The top of my bureau, while bigger, faces south. I went to a thrift store and found the silver and gold candlesticks as well as the gold incense burner. The silver and gold tapers are from a craft store. They’re rather ostentatious, but I like them. I sanded down my wand some more. My athame is relatively new. I made the pentacle and smallest candleholder out of clay. The purple and black painted pumpkin represents the Sabbat and the Goddess in her Crone form.
Amethyst: crystal of the Third Eye Chakra. A beautiful purple stone used as a dream stone and a meditative focus stone. Put an amethyst under your pillow to bring about pleasant dreams. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is known to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work.
Love The Myth Zeus, the king of Gods and man, came into power by killing and overthrowing his father Cronus, whom he castrated, throwing his genitals into the sea. From where they fell, a white foam arose and Aphrodite rose, fully-grown and beautiful, from within it. Aphrodite, like Eros, has a dual birth myth. Another story places Aphrodite as the daughter of Zeus and Dione. The Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite represents the nature of romantic love and beauty born from both the ethereal and physical realms. The myth of her birth expresses the divine nature of the erotic and the complexity of its connection to romantic love. Aphrodite was known to have had many lovers and explored the realms of love and the erotic in great depth. The Message If you�ve drawn this card today then there may be a magnetic energy growing around you. To connect to Aphrodite is to connect to the powerful forces that propel us forward in love. Of course, you must connect to your divine centre of beauty in order to experience this magnetism and that is also occurring for you now. This is an exciting, sensual time where �love is in air�. Whether you are in a relationship or not, this is the time to let go of petty insecurities, past hurts and any old, tired habits or patterns that have kept you on a romantic merry-go-round. This is a time to reconnect to spontenaiety, imagination, adventure and fun and the limit of this fun, excitement, romance and sensuality is only restricted by your own imagination and ability to let go and break free from your fears of intimacy. This is truly the most erotic act as every tiny breakthrough is felt as a rush of both terror, liberation and excitement. This is a time of romantic adventure, so let go, have fun, be brave, open up, take emotional risks and take the initiative.
