I have actually had my altar set up for several years. It has actually changed as I have changed over the years. This is my current layout.


Goddess White/Silver Candle God Candle/Statue

Incense and holder
Libation dish



Chalice Small Water dish Pentacle Tile Small Salt Dish

Bell Athame


Wand

BOS

I also have different colored candles that represent each of the elements. I use the standard North = Earth,
East = Air, South = Fire, West = Water . Green for earth, Blue for Water, Yellow for Air and Red for Fire. I also keep a lighter and a candle snuffer on my altar.

They are in the corresponding directions on my altar.

This is my permanant altar. I also have a "travel" altar which I use different colored stones to symbolize the elements. I also have things that I have found while on hikes that have "spoken" to me and I use as symbols for the Goddess and God as well as a small, portable wand. I keep a small bottle of water and a few salt packets along with it, in a small bag that I can take with me anywhere.

Our altars are setup very similarly. I wanted to say that I think it is a wonderful idea that you carry on you a travel altar on your person. I would never have thought to do that. Now I am inspired.

BOS stands for Book of Shadows. It is a book in which one records his or her spells and other personal things.
