A wtich's alter is a personal, sacred space. It is a tool used to gather and focus magickal energies. It is a reflection of the witch herself (or himself) and is used to communicate with the Goddess.
Where ever the alter is placed, the area should be clean and clutter-free. I was disgusted this morning when I re-entered the bed room to find that my husband had emptied his workpants pockets on to my alter!! Pay stubs, post-its, screws and change strewn across my alter. If this had been the first time, I likely would have simply over-looked it... but it has been happening over and over, again and again. He seemingly disrespects my wishes when I ask him not to use my alter in such a way.
Where is your alter? Have you chosen an indoor one, and outdoor one - or perhaps both? I would love to hear about others' alters...
