As you probably (definitely) know, we’re big fans of color here at Woman Shop World.
We’re also big fans of nature, and we love its unique, gorgeous colors, and using those colors to connect to the powers of each season. We love to create seasonal sacred spaces that invoke the essence of each season: the deep rich orange of autumn leaves, the soft lush green of grass, the craggy gray of mountains, the golden sand of deserts, the turquoise of ocean waves.
That’s one reason why we love creating seasonal altars and incorporating bits of seasonal magic into our sacred spaces. This blog will share a few ideas to help you create your next seasonal altar!
