Imbolg 2009 Altar

Huh, just realised that I never uploaded the photographs of last year’s Imbolg altar (and I’ve been pretty slack and late about uploading this year’s ones. But here they are!

L-R: candles, including my Imbolg pillar candle with the rune Beorc (representing purity and rebirth) carved into it. In front of the taper candles are the lotus candle-holder, a piece of kunzite, a lotus candle, a small spessartite cluster, and my trusty pinecone. In front of those are a bottle of clear topaz pieces, a chunk of iceland spar calcite, a selenite sphere with two piece of tumbled selenite, a creedite cluster, and a bottle of tiny garnets. Right at the front is my amethyst rosary (which, appropriately, has a Brighid medallion on it), a selenite wand, a small jar of salt, and a wooden incense-holder/pentacle.

And, of course, a candle-lit shot:

A note on symbolism: my Imbolg altars are characteristically a lot less cluttered than those for the other Sabbats, revolving around candles and stones representing purity and rebirth. In a lot of ways I consider Imbolg the real ‘new year’, in that it’s the time to enact changes in one’s life, hence ‘spring-cleaning’ and all that.

Any thoughts/comments/questions?
