We are finally getting settled for real, for real in our new home.
My altar/sacred space is currently upstairs in the office/music room, and it just doesn’t feel right. I have yet to sit at it. Maybe that’s because that particular room is the last to be put together, or maybe it’s just that it isn’t where I feel it should be.
I have been sitting at my kitchen table to do rituals. I like to be near my back door and windows, and my herbs in the kitchen.
Here’s my question (with a little explanation first).
I realize each practitioner holds their own beliefs and should do what feels comfortable for them. HOWEVER. Where I would LIKE to place my altar is between the kitchen and dining area, facing the back door, facing East. It just feels like a perfect spot for ME. But I’ve read that it is disrespectful to the dieties to place your altar in the kitchen, plus since they are protectors of the home, it is counterintuitive to face the altar towards the back of the home.
Can anyone shed some light on this, please? Will I be working against myself and the gods and goddesses if I move my altar here? Is this asking for trouble? Am I overthinking this?
Blessings to each of you. It is a peaceful rainy day here in TX. I am feeling grateful today because my family is recovering from sickness, and I am feeling renewed and energized to get organized!
