I don't know if it's because I'm a Libra, or because of how my mother brought us up, but how my home looks is very important to me.
That's not to say I need fancy furniture or Oriental rugs - although nice furniture is a bonus - but I need my home to feel just like that: a home. I need it to feel safe and welcoming, not just for me but for any guests I may have. I strive to keep everything tidy on a physical and magical level, and to fill my space with things that create a comfortable atmosphere even if there is witchy shit in every corner.
As I write this, a warm storm has picked up outside. It's raining, and the wind is pushing my wooden blinds away from the windows. Inside, I am surrounded by candlelight; I smell beeswax and faint sandlewood.
It's good to be home.
|View from the foyer. The camera likes blue, I guess. Ouija tray covered by crap as usual.|
|Supply cabinet: herbs and candles. My two living plants!|
|Essence of BEND OVER BITCH.|
|These herbs actually have jars!|
|Main room. That whole bookcase is occult stuff.|
|Altar space by the kitchen entryway.|
|Mundane bookcase by the TV cabinet.|
|The view directly behind me in the office. So, my dresser.|
