Sea Witch’s Shrine:
This is an altar I have set up at my parents house currently, of course dedicated to the sea. I like trying to keep my shrine space simple and un-cluttered, especially since it is for the energy and atmosphere rather than any actual workings. My working altar is at my apartment right now, so pics of that will come.
- The top shelf represents the surface or the shoreline. A constantly changing atmosphere filled with new treasures. The colors for this area were tan and white (of course) to represent clarity and understanding. What is shown is a jar of driftwood, jar of smoothed shell fragments, some of my favorite shells/coral, 2 illustrations of mer-anatomy from the Ressurectionist, as well as a jar display my best friend made for my birthday about 5 years ago. (only in top picture).
- The middle shelf represents the raw of the ocean. It represents the vast expanse of the untamable and wild, as well as the harbinger of connection between people and spirit.The main colors for this were white and blue for wisdom and discernment. What is shown is a few blue bottles, shells, driftwood, coral, a fishing lure, chunk of celestite, as well as box that I made a while ago (with functioning skeleton-key lock: which was an ordeal all its own).
- The final layer represents the sea-floor. This symbolizes the unknown and the otherworld, an endless expanse of stone and darkness reminiscent of the future. This tier gives me hope for the mysteries to come, as reflected in the past. The colors for this were black, dark green, and amber. What is shown is a bowl with riverstones/candle, handmade candleholder, iron mermaid and shell box, chunk of obsidian, and brass Roman Soldier bust.
Hope you all enjoyed! I figured this would be a good time for this because I’m home for the weekend, but it will be about another month and half before I’m back. Cheers!
