Do any of you have, or have had, any altars that were/are for specific purposes? Not necessarily deities or holidays, but like specific desires you wanted to send out to the Universe -- for example, to gain a new job or have enough money to see a doctor or pass a huge exam.

If so, when do you ... stop having it? As in, let's say your goal is achieved. What do you do with that altar after you've already had your desire granted? Do you discard it? If so, how do you think it's appropriate to discard it?

I have smaller altars in different rooms that are focused on differnt intentions...

In the kitchen I have what I think of as an Altar of Plenty.  It features a cyclomen (cause it likes to grow there and is both earth and water) a statue or Tarawet... the Hippo Goddess and a small plate (maybe 2 inches accross) with a carp on it.  The word for carp is a homophone in chinese for "Plenty" so, they are featured all through my kitchen, and Portugues ceramic chickens which as a symbol of "plenty" again.. as in "a chicken in every pot" 

My library has a little shrine to Athena and Genesh... because both are intellectuals...

so I guess I would burn incense and meditate at those two altars to focus my intention for the things you want... as far as tearing down or docomisioning altars....Just do it with intention... I often meditate on Eclesesties 3:1 when i'm changing my altars.... cosmic forces.. are good with change... don't fret to much about it.

I went to my sister's house, and  hanging on the wall she had a spice rack with some jars of stuff (not spice) on the bottom shelf, and some other symbols ( a small statue of goddess and god, pentacle, ect.) on the top shelf.

I asked what it was.

She said "Waltar"

idealistically I'd just purify it and keep it there to be used for other requests that are similar...

As it stands I've like a car full of things (lost everything else including my military regalia, paperwork, memorabalia etc...), so, a box here, a crate there is what I've got to work with. In that case they find new life elsewhere.
