How to Set up an Altar for Spring

The warm outdoor days of picnics, gardening, and nature hikes are just around the corner as we make our way closer to the wonderful season of spring. Often referred to as the season of new light, spring is a dreamy time of the year full of optimism, warmth, and new beginnings as we awake from our winter slumber and begin to blossom into new areas of our lives. Spiritually, this is a powerful time of new opportunities and forward movement as we prepare to set out on new journeys. Because of this, doing what we can to welcome in and honor this energy is essential to truly make the most of it and can help to enhance our spells and rituals at this time. And what better way to do that than with setting up your own divine spring altar? 

With that said, today, we wanted to go over one of our favorite ways to decorate your altar to welcome in the spring, as well as a few product recommendations that align with the energy of this season. So, without further ado, here’s our personal guide to setting up a spring altar to make the most of the abundant energy of the season.

1. Natural Altar Décor Ideas

Starting off, the first step to setting up your altar space for the spring is to start by decorating it with some earthy pieces. With that said, spring is a great time to gather items outdoors to place on your altar if you can. However, there are also plenty of other wonderful corresponding items that you can find in the stores or even make yourself to place on it. With that said, you might include pieces such as:

  • Greenery or branches
  • Flowers such as tulips, daffodils, lilac, peony, or violets
  • Animal statues such as deer, birds, or rabbits
  • Eggs or egg-shaped items
  • Woven baskets or colorful ribbons
  • Hand-made altar broom
  • Items in colors of white, pink, purple, green, and blue

Truly, the sky is the limit when it comes to decorating your altar with nature pieces, and you should always include anything that speaks spring to you, even if it isn’t on our list, as this will help your altar to better align with your energy and intentions.

For example, one of our favorite pieces to include on your altar in the springtime is the Natural Amethyst Tree of Life Suncatcher. Designed with beautiful amethyst chips strung into the shape of the sacred Tree of Life, amethyst is considered to be a stone of the spring and can help to transmute lower energies into more positive ones. Therefore, bringing this into your home can not only help to welcome the energies aligned with the spring into your space but also allow you to maintain a positive and protective vibration in your home all season long. 


 

2. Seasonal Candles

Next, alongside soft pastel colors and decorative nature items, the next item to incorporate on your altar is candles. Candles are one of the best pieces to have on an altar year-round and can be used for just about anything. For that reason, you’ll want to look for candles in colors of yellow, white, pink, green, or any other vibrant colors that speak spring to you. For scents, sage and floral scents such as lavender, rose, or jasmine are excellent choices at this time and can help you to align deeper with the energies of the springtime.

With that said, our personal recommendation for a spring candle is the New Chapter Intention Candle. Rich in the earthy scents of lemon, sweet sugar, and floral hints, this candle helps to align you with the springtime energies of change and can help to guide you through new chapters of your journey. Not to mention it has also been energetically charged with positive energy by a powerful reiki master and is topped with pyrite and clear quartz crystals to enhance the energy further.

 

Also, don’t forget a brass candle snuffer to go along with your candle, as blowing out a candle is believed to blow away the magic and intention cast into it. Therefore, if you aren’t able to burn your candle to completion, always remember to snuff it out to preserve its magical intent for future use.

3. Springtime Crystals

Next, it wouldn’t be a seasonal altar setup if we didn’t add in a couple of options for crystals. Crystals are just one of those things that, no matter what you use them for, are bound to amplify the intent of your practice further. Therefore, swapping out altar crystals each season to ones that are more relevant to the energy of this time is a great way to work more closely with the season. With that said, since spring is all about new life, new beginnings, balance, and inspiration, you may want to keep an eye out for crystals that align with these energies, such as:

  • Tiger’s Eye: For new energy, protection, and inspiration
  • Carnelian: For creativity, ambition, and forward movement
  • Amethyst: For divine connection and balance
  • Clear quartz: For clarity, balance, and inspiration
  • Rhodonite heart: For self-love, balance, deeper connection to the heart chakra, and emotional healing

And more. Of course, choosing crystals is a very personal practice, so remember to always use your intuition to guide you towards the ones that feel right for you, even if it may not have made our list. 

For example, our personal crystal choice for the spring season is the clear quartz rune set. Known as a master healing crystal for its versatile uses, quartz runes are a great addition to your altar and can help with positive energy amplification, deeper psychic sense, and even divine protection. More than anything, this rune set is a great choice for those looking to embrace the energies of change and transformation with the coming spring. 

4. Seasonal Incense 

Next, incense is another important part of decorating your altar and can help to capture the beautiful earthy essence of the season. And since spring is all about new life and beautiful blooms, you’ll want to look for scents that can mimic the fresh and revitalizing scents such as this. With that said, a few ideas for corresponding incense for the beautiful floral season might include:

  • Sage
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Rose
  • Lavender
  • Geranium
  • Peony
  • Cedarwood
  • Myrrh

However, our personal favorite scent for spring is Satya jasmine incense. With a fresh, captivating, and uplifting aroma, this jasmine incense can help to purify your environment, bring a more positive feeling to the atmosphere, and draw more self-love and prosperity to you naturally. More than anything, this incense is a great addition to your home to welcome in all the beautiful and bountiful energies of spring and help you to hone in more on your own inner power. 


5. Protection Items

Next, protection items are always a must on your altar, no matter what season it is, and it’s always a good idea to change them up from time to time to help keep the energy strong and aligned. Therefore, a few ideas for protection items that you might want to consider adding to your altar for spring include: 

  • Herbs such as rosemary, mugwort, or sage
  • Crystals such as black tourmaline, smokey quartz, or obsidian
  • Cleansing salts
  • Statues or symbols of gods or deities that you connect with

However, one of our personal go-to choices for protection items for your altar is the triple moon purple altar cloth. With the triple moon as its symbol and a rich purple as its color, this altar cloth is linked with the energies of divine protection and is a great addition to your altar space to keep the energy sacred. Not to mention, you can even use this cloth as a prayer shawl or as a banner on the wall to help boost the energy of the room or home further. Because of this, this altar cloth is a great choice to add to your home to keep the positive energy flowing and to keep your space divinely protected.

6. Spring Beauty Products

Next, for us, another big part of enhancing your altar for the season is to make sure you’re switching out old beauty products with new products of the season. However simple this may seem, this can help you welcome in and absorb the healing properties of the seasonal magic better and ensure your skin is getting the proper care it deserves through the seasonal changes. From sprays to lotions, here are some of our top favorite spring beauty products that you may want to consider adding to your altar. 


1. Luna Magicka Trio

Our first beauty product recommendation for spring is the Luna Magicka Trio. As a rich collection of three unique oils, this set contains the Luna, Luna Rosa, and Obscura Luna bottles, all designed to capture the sacred essence of the different phases of the moon. With that said, the Luna oil inspires spiritual healing, while the Luna Rosa is designed to help you embrace your feminine energy, and the Obscura Luna is perfect for channeling more of your inner power. Combined, these oils pack a plethora of divine healing energy for your own personal use. 


Not to mention, they are rich in all-natural ingredients designed to nourish your mind, body, and soul to send you into the new season with flying colors. For that reason, they are one of the beauty products we recommend the most for those looking to delve into a little self-love and empowerment. 

  1. Spring Witch Vegan Perfume Oil 

Our next recommendation is the Spring Witch Vegan Perfume Oil. Designed as a roll-on perfume, this floral perfume is rich in natural ingredients, including rosewater, jasmine, clover, lily, coconut, and citrus accents that provide the perfect fresh, revitalizing, and earthy aroma that resembles a morning stroll through a field of blooming wildflowers. On top of that, this perfume oil is also vegan, cruelty-free, and phthalate-free and is truly perfect for anyone looking to invite a little spring essence to their aura. 


  1. Rose Perfume Oil Self Love 

Next, since many of the energies of the spring are aligned with hope, self-love, and positive energy, our next recommendation is the Rose Perfume Oil. Crafted with soft organic oils, including rose geranium oil and coconut oil, this perfume is designed to invite more self-love into your space to condition your heart chakra and help you to love yourself more authentically. With a sweet, soft, and earthy aroma, this perfume has also been enhanced with rose quartz chips to help you channel divine Goddess energy wherever you go and is perfect for anyone looking to lift their energy in the most divine way possible. 

  1. Goddess Facial Toner with Rose Geranium and Rose Quartz

Lastly, if you’re looking to enhance your skin with a dewy spring glow, the Goddess Facial Toner is the way to go. Activated with rose geranium essential oil and natural witch hazel, this toner is designed to help cleanse your face, shrink your pores, and purify the skin inside and out. Not to mention, it’s also enhanced with real rose chips to connect you with the divine source to channel more universal self-love than ever before.

December Horoscope 2022: 12 Sign Overview
December Horoscope 2022: 12 Sign Overview

November 30, 2022

As we prepare to say farewell to 2022, we welcome December, a month of change and renewal to send us off with flying colors into the new year. As the last month of the calendar year, December is likely to bring some closure to the events going on in our lives and present the signs with the opportunity to sit down, reflect, and plan out their future. As such, this is likely to give us a chance to get our life together more, slow down, and enjoy the moment with loved ones. 

Aside from the general vibe of the month, December is likely to be quite an active month for the planets, with key influences coming from Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. To start, we will kick off the month with Neptune going direct in Pisces in the first week of the month, stirring up a dreamy and imaginative aura that is likely to help us find better clarity in our lives. Mercury will then move into the sign of the Capricorn on the 6th of the month, boosting our communication and pushing us to speak more freely about the things on our minds. A few days later, Venus will move into Capricorn, which is likely to put a focus on our relationships for the next several weeks and help us find more stable ground within them. On the 20th, Jupiter will enter the Aries sign, encouraging expansion, new energy, and passion in our lives. 

Then, on the 21st, we enter the season of the Capricorn, which is likely to push the signs to become more serious about the path ahead and work to start planning out their future better. This is also the same day that Yule begins, bringing with it a powerful period of restrospection, transformation, and rebirth. To end the month, Mercury retrograde will begin in Capricorn on the 29th, ushering us to reflect and slow down as we move into the new year with a steadier and calmer pace. And, with Mars retrograde still actively going on until January, this is likely to slow our energy even more so. 

As you can see, December is likely to be full of many unique energies that are likely to inspire many changes within us as well. But, to give you a better idea of some energies that may be present around you this month, today, we're going to go over what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout November and how you can adjust your life to make the most of them.
