“How are you Miss MM??
I love your spunk, intellect and writings. I am an avid subscriber and I recently bought your Uranus In Aries Confidential and completely agree that we are going through a universal shift. In sync with that shift I have decided to make a Shrine/alter in my bedroom.
A place to meditate, bless, cast spells and contemplate life. I also want to use it as a place to manifest my dreams and create energy.
I am not a believer of one religion but I do believe in spirits and a universal code or connection that can be tapped into. I draw on astrology, Buddhism, and parts of voodoo both in scripture and symbolism.
I don’t want to disrespect any of the traditions by mixing the gods together or mixing up spiritual energies. Do you have advise on any type of shrine I can create or point me to a book that may give me some ideas?
Dear Gemini 1001,
Wow what a brill idea! I love your vibe. Personally, I think Feng Shui is ALWAYS the best starting point. For instance, crystals count as an “earth cure” so you want to place them wisely. Red is Fire – as are candles, obviously – and amazingly stimulating so be careful where you’re putting it…You get the shrine in the right bit of your bedroom and find out what colors/elements work there first…and then you elaborate…You can do all sorts of things with it. I don’t have a shrine as such but i’ve got a big mood board, that’s constantly evolving with where I am at.
That question re clashing spiritual energies is interesting. I don’t know. I was told years ago NEVER to have the I-Ching and the Tarot in the same house as they’re a different ministry of magic or something. But really, do modern pantheists really give a fuq about such things? Denise Linn has some gorgeous thoughts on altars in her books & I think there is some stuff in the HouseWitch A to Z as well.
OH MY GOD We should concoct different shrine ideas for each Sun Sign? Or go with your Moon? The flowers and colors etc in the Luna Luxe are a good start…
