Every Altar Is a Door

As keeper of the coven temple, it's my responsibility to make the daily offerings and prayers there on the People's behalf.

This I do twice daily, morning and evening.

(In an ideal world, with a full temple staff, there would be four offerings each day: at sunrise, solar noon, sunset, and solar midnight. Oh well. We do the best that we can with the resources available.)

A fortnight back I was staying at Sweetwood Sanctuary in the heart of Midwest Witch Country. While I was there, I made the daily offerings and prayers before the main altar in the Grand Circle.

There I noticed something very interesting indeed.

    So to light the candles is to pass through the doorway. Nice.

    This is why I always put a pair of candlesticks on an altar (but not a shrine)...the candlesticks mark the doorposts.

So, at Samhain they come to the door and take something.

And at Bealtaine, they come to the door and leave something.

Just sayin.'
