Wiccan Yule Alter by Vampiric-Conure Wiccan Yule Alter by Vampiric-Conure
Several pals and I are Wiccan/Pagan and we always take pix as a record of our alters. I HAD to have several photographs of the alter with the candles lit. Here's one of the better images :-)

Can you explain whats on your Alter?

Lets see if I can remember! I think it was a spell for mulled tea or mulled wine, to bring more sunlight and prosperity into our lives. THe alter itself - most of the decorations- are from a communal alter a friend set up. The god and goddess statue I think are Athena and ...I can't remember the God. For public rituals we use that as a generic god and goddess statue so I've forgotten the actual god's name.

Hope that helps :)

It kinda did help, sorry for asking. I am just getting into Pagan and I am not really sure what to put on my Alter, I am a bit confused on it

I understand :) I'll go a bit more into detail of what the alter has

On the top, from left to right, are:

the God candle, the statue, the goddess candle

juice and bread for the simple feast

salt in a shell

water in a shell, the spell and components, the athame and incense container

maiden candle (Basically a candle that all other candles are lit from)

If you have any questions, you can email me at white_ravens_white_crows at yahoo dot com. I help teach a teaching circle
and can help with some of the basics if you need help :) No pressure! Just an offer of help!**bows**

Hey-o :D I believe the bags were spells we had put together before the ritual. Can't remember for what. May have been prosperity.

Amazing picture; I love how the candles are the only light but how they light up the entire altar a little. It makes the picture seem to capture the darkness and the light sides of Yule, plus it makes everythng seem warm, not like a flashbulb in the dark.
(I can't tell you how many pictures I've had to pitch because I forgot to turn off the flash... hehe)

I envy you. The statue of Artemis and the Stag is so beautiful. I wanted to get that one so badly for my alter.

Your apart of a coven? Very lucky. I'm a solitary right now because there is no one around here who are well heh like me. There is word of another coven an hour or two away from me that I have been trying to reach for a half a year I think.

i love your altar. its very beautiful. can you tell me what the difference between Wicca and simply being Pagan? i'm currently looking into both because they both fit me but cant decide which. also, how exactly do you address the gods/goddesses? i live in a small town and dont have many resources other than the net (sites vary, gah!)

I like it. Looks very cool. And i see that you have the same incence burner as me.

I am studying to become a Wicca. I have only read a couple of books so far and did some reaserch online but I just ordered another book to read.

Sorry for taking so long to answer. I was in the hospital for a month.... ghah!

Yes..the statue is of Diana, though my friend and high priestess feel it's a statue of Artemis and the guy she turned into a stag for spying on her bathing (!). Either way, it's a cool statue. We're uber lucky to have found it!
