Create a little sacred space in your home dedicated to this beautiful season!

An autumn altar is perfect for samhain rituals, for burning candles while drinking a nice hot drink, or just to give your space a nice autumn theme.

To get started, choose a nice little cabinet or table and build your personal display. Then start adding autumn themed objects.

We have some suggestions for you to create the perfect autumn altar!

Stones

Citrine

Obsidian
A powerful protection stone, the obsidian crystal helps identify your dark side so that its healing properties can clear it away from your psyche. It reminds us that everyone has a good and bad side.
Tiger’s eye
Tiger’s eye is a powerful stone that helps you to release fear and anxiety and aids harmony and balance. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions, unclouded by your emotions.
Tourmalin
Ancient magicians relied upon turmaline to protect them from earth demons as they cast their spells. Today this stone is still used for protection. It deflects negative energies, entities, or destructive forces.
Amber

Smoky quartz
Smoky quartz is a powerful cleanser and detoxifier. Hold it to relieve tension and stress, and to ward off negative thinking. Use this stone to amplify the energy of all the stones surrounding it, which creates a synergy of soothing vibes.

Anise
for protection against evil spirits and intentions.

Photos

Something self-made
Everything you create yourself holds its own magic.

Tips

1. There’s no need to use all of the items above when building your altar. Just choose the objects that speak to you.

2. You can also add other personal objects. It’s not necessary that everything in your altar connects strongly to autumn. If you have other objects that you want to display, just do it! It’s your altar, so do what feels right.

3. If you’re not immediately happy with the looks of your altar, just rearrange things or add/remove some stuff. Aestetics are important. You should be proud of your creation.
