Full Moon Altars: Introduction


I had so much fun in December creating my Winter Solstice Altar that I've decided to continue making new monthly altars as a kind of spiritual practice. Now that I'm no longer facilitating my drumming circle and my favourite local labyrinth has ceased being available for walking, I'm feeling the need for another outlet through which to focus these energies.

Each monthly altar will have a theme built around an aspect of the Divine Feminine or a spiritual value of some description. And I'm just bursting with ideas! Also, bursting with Goddess statues -- I'm a collector and currently have about 75 to choose from. I won't run out for a while, LOL!

I intend to post a photo and description of each altar on that month's Full Moon. So January's altar will be posted next Thursday, but I just wanted to give a little introduction first as to what I am doing in this new blog series.

Awesomeness, friend D. Sending love, cat.

Looking forward to it! We have a local drum circle on the beach here. I'm not sure if they are still doing it right now but I'd be afraid to go now anyway. It will be nice when I can get back to it.

Laurie said...

That’s an impressive collection!👍❤️

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

This is such a great idea!
I'm totally looking forward to this. Every full moon? Sounds fantastic. I'm all for positive energy now that I don't feel that there's a weight over us (and the US).

XOXO

Can't wait!!

pam nash said...

What a good idea. I'll be excited to see your altar change month to month. Mine seldom changes except to add the odd one or two things for the season/time.

Leanna said...

OMG!! I've been doing the same thing. It's actually quite fulfilling. CHanging my alter makes me feel better. It gives me something to really think about.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, Did you know that in Taiwan one of the most honored deities is the goddess Matsu? There are temples devoted to her all over the island.

Linda said...

Love the idea....can't wait to see.

Thanks for sharing your sweet memories about The Guess Who.

Lady M said...

75 Goddess statues? That must be a record or something.

Rain said...

I love it Debra, and I'm looking forward to it!!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Parnassus (Jim) -- I have not heard of Matsu before. I just checked her out on Wikipedia. Thanks for telling me about her!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Pam Nash and @ Leanna -- I'm glad you both know the joy of creating altars too! Fabulous.

Mitchell Block said...

I'm looking forward to this!

Mike said...

So I say to myself, self, how many goddesses do we think there are? The Google can help me find out, right? Ah HA! Wikipedia knows all. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_goddesses
I was going to count them. Maybe later.

Tundra Bunny said...

I hope you don't plan on mooning us at any of these altars -- leave such behaviour to HRH, eh?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Mike -- Looks like I've got a lot more collecting to do, LOL!

Polly said...

oooh this sounds good. I'm looking forward to seeing your altars.

Val Ewing said...

Interesting, I'll have to see what this is all about!

bobbie said...

I can't wait to see/read about them!!

I'm looking forward to seeing this!

Linda said...

A great idea, I'm glad you are going to share with us. That's a big collection you have, I look forward to seeing and finding out more about your Goddess collection!

Martha said...

Sounds wonderful! Looking forward to all that you'll share.

Ur-spo said...

That would be easy around here as it is seldom cloudy, good luck at yours !

e said...

What a wonderful idea! I think I will join you. My primary altar is in my bedroom, but I think an altar on the hearth is a lovely addition. It is a good way to foster focus and centeredness.

(Also, I may not have as many images of the Divine Feminine, the One Goddess of Many Faces, but Quan Yin is in every room of the house minus the bathrooms.)

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ e -- Another altar devotee, so great! And having Quan Yin energy in every room of the house is wonderful!

JACKIESUE said...

75 goddess's? holycrap. How cool is that? I can't wait for the first one..

baili said...

Fundy Blue said...

I'm looking forward to seeing your altars, Debra. The image of the woman holding the moon is gorgeous and spiritual!
