The Winter Solstice Nature Altar For Winter Goddesses and Holiday Fairies

Christmas and winter solstice Christmas lights display + woodland nature altar for nature goddesses and fairy offerings

Yesterday, during the great conjunction alignment, I headed into the woods for another hiking adventure! I made my way to fern trail (Every park has one) and I created the winter solstice nature altar for winter goddesses and holiday fairies. I left it in plain sight as a dedication to the winter solstice and all the magic and wonder that goes along with that!

Okay, let's talk about the winter solstice, shall we? It's the beginning of winter and the shortest day of the year. To me, it's a time where darkness is illuminated by Christmas lights and fairy lights to light the way for you.

I feel like it's a bustling time of year where everything is darker and more focused inward. It's typically cold outside, in some places snowy with blustering weather, and it's a celebration of winter and all of the magic and charm that goes along with that.

That focus inward is what we like to call hermit-mode and it's a time where we are going to be in our homes by the fire and spending time with our families and friends during the holiday season. During the winter solstice, it makes way for us to take a long, hard look at ourselves.

We can assess our lives by working with Archangel Jeremiel on an end of the year evaluation or we can simply sit by the fire and write out our intentions for the new year ahead of us. We can use this time to make a plan for our businesses or to tie up loose ends and conclude chapters in our lives.

I always like to think of the winter equinox is a time to go inward and celebrate the magic of self! It's a time to set goals and achieve them. It's a time of starting a new diet program or morning yoga routine. It's a time of breaking old habits and making new ones!

It's definitely one of my more favorite times of the year! We're snug as a bug in the heart of Capricorn season which makes us want to work smarter, not harder when it comes to the changes we'd like to make. There's a newfound sense of passion and purpose calling for us to go within.

With all of that magic in the air, it's no surprise that the winter goddesses and holiday fairies emerge from the forest ready to do their best work! In order to attract them, you might like to make them a quick winter solstice nature altar. Keep reading to find out how!

Honestly, there are so many that it may be difficult to choose from, but I thought it be fun to highlight a few and then create a multipurpose altar for the rest. I created my woodland altar by setting up a cute Christmas display of figurines and a faux Christmas tree.

Next, I added a secret love note on what I wanted to bring into the winter season of my life! I thought about what I wanted to work on and what I wanted to bring more of into my life.

Again, for me, nothing says winter like going into hermit-mode and doing some shadow work! You can get in touch with your dark self by doing shadow work too in my shadow work handbook with questions to help get you started.

In addition to that, I made sure to leave a half acorn with some root beer and some Christmas candies without the wrappers on. Then, I set my nature altar up by the trees on the fern trail where anyone who walks by can see the altar and enjoy it too. It encourages passer by's to add stuff to the display or take pictures with it!
