On the surface, fall is a time for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and frolicking in the foliage. But there’s more to the season than that! When approached from a spiritual perspective, fall’s crisp air and rich, fiery hues take on a whole new meaning.
Coming off summer, which is often filled with travel, social gatherings, and restless activity, fall feels more like an exhale. It’s a transitional season whose coming signals a moment to turn inward in preparation for winter. More than anything, fall is a time of harvest: An opportunity to take stock of everything you’ve “planted” so far this year.
How to make an altar that sets the stage for self-care.
For those of us who don’t live on a farm, crafting our own symbolic harvest is a great practice to kick off the new season. That’s where altars come in. Personal, at-home altars don’t need to resemble the large, ornate ones you’d find in religious spaces of worship. They can be as contained as a tabletop, the corner of a room, or, if you’re like me and are really strapped for space, a windowsill. And they can display just about anything you want—photos of loved ones, your favorite crystals, a handwritten letter you cherish, or any meaningful trinkets you’ve collected over the years.
