I’m Wiccan and I’m moving into a dorm soon. I have a small altar prepared to take with me, with the exception of a representation of air. The altar is rather nondescript, seeing as (a) I don’t want to shove my religion down my roommate’s throat, and (b) according to friends, there’s apparently a lot of religious intolerance in the town I’ll be moving to. It’s a small, brass tray filled with sand, with a thimble-sized candle for fire, a gemstone for earth, and a shell for water.
However, I’m having trouble coming up with something for air. Incense is a no-go. I would like to use a feather, but they’re difficult to find in the winter time and I’m too poor to go buy them from a craft shop (assuming I could find real ones). A bell was suggested, but I neither own a bell that small, nor have the money to buy one, as I said. I know some people use 4 different colored candles for the elements, but I’d rather not in my practices.
Any ideas? Again, it must be rather small (no bigger than an inch wide or tall).
Thank you all very much for your suggestions! They were all very creative and extremely helpful.
