Celebrate Spring’s Renewal with these 6 Tips to Build an Equinox Altar

The spring equinox is finally here, marking a time of rebirth and growth.

This is the perfect occasion to create a sacred space in your home to honor this powerful seasonal shift. An altar is a focal point for your intentions and reflections, and building one for the spring equinox is a beautiful way to connect with the vibrant energy of renewal, growth, and inspiration.


Never built one? Don’t fret. Here’s a guide to help you build your own.

Find a place in your home for your altar

Before you get started, finding the right place in your home is crucial for setting up an altar. Whether it’s a corner by your office or a small spot in your living room, ensure your items won’t be disturbed.

Set up your altar on a table, shelf, or box

An altar can be any surface that feels meaningful to you. Use a table, a shelf, or even a flat rock from your garden. You can also drape a colorful cloth on top that resembles flowers or foliage.

Gather symbols of spring

One of the magical things about spring is that it symbolizes balance. During this time, there are equal parts day and night, flowers bloom, rainstorms return, and seeds begin sprouting. Walk around nature and find items that remind you of the season. Some ideas include fresh flowers, daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths, which are perfect choices. Add eggs (painted or natural), seeds, figurines, or feathers. To symbolize growth, you can add sprouting seeds or branches.


Add crystals and candles for a touch of intention

Rose Quartz, Green Adventurine, and Carnelian are excellent crystals to have on your altar for spring. They are associated with growth, creativity, and love. However, choose crystals that resonate with you and your personal goals.

Include personal touches

While the items we’ve listed can help you compile your own beautiful altar, it’s also recommended that you add personal touches. Choose photos, deities, poems, or anything that evokes the spirit of the season for you.

Make it a space for reflection

Spend time in quiet contemplation near your altar. Reflect on the changing seasons, personal growth, and the new beginnings you hope to cultivate.

Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to create an altar, Muza. Let your intuition guide you and enjoy the process of creating a sacred space that welcomes the vibrant energy of spring.
