Personal meditation altar! Love singing bowls.
My fiancée and I combined altars, to beautiful results!
It needs some organization, but I’m starting to love it. :)
my main altar after a bit of rearranging so i could make a home for my new orchid Lola. she already seems happy there.
My moontime/earth day altar. Take time to honor the divine within, to flow freely, and to give thanks to mother earth.

My current altar setup.
Far left: Element of Water. Bottle of moon water, chalice, offering bowl.
Near left: Element of Fire. Athame and consecrated dual use lighter (it has both a regular and jet flame capability. I find the jet flame fantastic for lighting incense coal)
Far right: Element of Earth. Crystals and jewelry.
Near right: Element of Air. Incense burner and the small spoon I use for picking up powdered incense; and wooden recorder.
Center: Element of Spirit. Pentacle circlet, crystal ball, consecrated fountain pen, fountain, altar pentacle hanging above fountain and Owl pin that was a gift from my partner as a symbol of Blodeuwedd.
And the finishing touch, the three green tea light holders that can be used for the Triple Goddess or other use of three.
NOTES ON THE USE OF THE FOUNTAIN:
I chose the fountain because it contains, and thus, represents, the four main elements. Water is quite obvious (its a fountain). Earth is the stones that litter the top and middle divisions. Fire is in the candle that burns atop it, and Air is in the scent that comes from the scented candles that I have a tendency to use in there.

Well. I’ve drawn homoerotic centaurs and now, sapphic sphynxes … Next I’ll be doing bisexual satyrs, I suppose?
