As witches I hope that we would all know the difference between Altar and Alter, I see it spelled wrong all the time, and I'm beginning to wonder if you all are knowing the difference.
While it's true you may become altered at your Altar, Please remember the place you kneel is the Altar and for purposes of a place worthy of being capitalized like a proper noun , (a big A ) though this isn't the norm, the more inportant point is this...
The second vowel is an "a" this differentiates the word from the other.
Your alter is some other thing you become, or to change your way of direction, or transform your way of thinking ...alter.
The second vowel is an "e" and not capitalized. They're similar in a way...that the place you kneel or put you tools of "transformation" is the place that will change your way of thinking.
Remember...Altar (table) noun ...alter (change) verb
sorry in advance for being like such an old school marm. Blessings, Firebird
