Ghost Festival

This altar is the altar I keep set up in my bedroom year-round, and it serves as my work space. Currently, it’s decorated for Ghost Festival.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s on my altar:

  • Skulls – specifically for Ghost Festival, to celebrate the deceased
  • Flower arrangements – to welcome Autumn and the harvest
  • Incense burners – incense are burned for various purposes; such as spells, cleansing, honoring
  • Salt – sometimes used for cleansing items
  • Dagger – used for directing energy and cutting herbs
  • Cauldron – used for burning items; such as incense, herbs, and paper used in spells
  • Tealight candle – a new one is placed on my altar each night during Ghost Festival, lit, and allowed to burn until it goes out on its own
