Is it necessary to have an Altar? Some Witches would say yes, however, there are also a lot of Witches that don’t think it’s necessary. I don’t think it’s necessary, but I do believe that it helps the Witch to be more powerful in her workings.
Most Witches who are new to the Craft feel that they need to purchase as many Altar items as possible, and ALL AT ONCE! Listen, I’m the first person to agree that having all of the Ritual items is pure joy, however, I’m the type of Witch that likes to make my tools, or even go rummaging through second-hand stores to find the Witchy treasures that will find a home on my Altar.
I’ve made a lot of my Witchcraft Tools, such as my marble Pentagram, Wand, Runes, and most of the candles that I use. For me, it’s a feeling of accomplishment and creativity, and it is also my thinking that when I make an item, I am loading it with my intense Magicks, thus making it even more powerful when I use them for Spells, Rituals, and healings.
It is also my way (whenever possible), to grow my own herbs, harvest and dry them, because I’m imbuing them with my Magical Power which, there, in turn, makes them even more potent than they already were.
Engulfing your Ritual Items with YOUR Intention, no matter if storebought or self-made, is the key to Magickal success.
