How to Set Up Your First Altar for Witches
Going by statistics, it is a fact that the number of people who practice Wiccan in the United States has grown from the paltry numbers it was in the past to some high numbers as of today, having grown from about 600,000 in the year 2008 to close to 2 million as at the beginning of the year 2016. Note the fact that these numbers are in fact seen to be a lot conservative looking at the fact that there are a number of the practicing Wiccans who will not reveal their true religion to those that they dont know.
Quite a high number of those who have chosen the Wiccan path, they are the solitary witches who do not belong to any coven for their preference for practicing their magic on their own.
When it comes to the choice of practicing the craft without belonging to a coven, the one challenge there has been with this is the need to get started in it as a solitary witch, for it is quite daunting and confusing getting around with this without the help of an experienced mentor.
It is an obvious fact that a number of the witches, if not all, will never be as free to share much of the details of the craft, the magical spaces and the rituals attending them. This is seen as a way to help guard themselves and the others who as well practice the craft from the ways of those who may be seeking to harm them.
