Magic to Honour the Moon – Make a Moon Altar

sing to the moonMagic to Honour the Moon – Make a Moon Altar


You could set up an altar to honour the phases of the Moon and the dark mysteries of the night. It doesn’t have to be large, just a small shelf or corner of a sideboard. Go with your instincts (as always!) on what items to put on your altar, but here are some suggestions to get you started:


Candles: Change the colour for each different phase of the Moon. (I would suggest white for waxing, red for full and black for waning to represent the three phases of the Triple Goddess.) Or you could use white or silver candles for the Moon and darker ones for the night such as deep red, forest green, purple or dark blue.


Herbs, crystals, shells, bowl of water: Use crystals that symbolise the Moon phases or the night. Night crystals might be apache tears, obsidian, angelite, celestite, smokey quartz, fluorite, quartz, jet, blue beryl, moonstone, selenite, pearl, opal, onyx, sodalite, dark agates, aquamarine and mother of pearl.
