I am looking at flats and houses at the moment and find that I keep thinking about where I might practice ritual magic. I have tried a few different rooms in my current home, and the best I can find is the balcony - except that my neighbours seem to find it, ehm, odd.

Do you have a designated ritual chamber or do you use a regular room? Do you move around a lot? Practice outdoors? I wish I had easy axcess to a forest or lakeside, but living in the centre of town it is a bit hard.

I set up my desk as an altar when I need to do a ritual. A picture of Baphomet blazes bright on my computer screen wth the candles and other objects in front of the screen. I also use my computer for the accompanying music.

My girl friend is very upset that I am a member of the Church of Satan so I perform my rituals when she is out and I put things away before she comes home. That way she can pretend that nothing happened. We were together five years before I discovered the Church of Satan and we get on very well so I do not mind putting up with her superstition.

If all else fails consider using my mp3 programs "The Seventh Tower of Satan" and "Beneath the Seventh Tower of Satan" listed in my signature below.

These programs were designed to help those Satanists who simply cannot set aside a place to perform Greater Magic.

I have closed chamber which I open when performing Ritual. For my needs the separate chamber works best, but I have also lived in department without it and managed just fine.

I leave the top of my dresser drawer empty just for ritual work. There I have some candles, a sigil of the baphomet, an athame, chalice, a bell, and I sometimes I will play some appropriate music on a record player. (something about using vinyl brings out more of a "warm feel")

I have to add to Nemo's comment though. Sometimes it is better just to use the theater of the mind for ritual work, Kind of like a form of Satanic meditation.

I have a spare bedroom in the house that (at least for now) is used as my "recreational room". Within it I keep my stereo, all my music, my guitars, keyboard, and other personal items. In the closet I keep all my Church of Satan literature, other occult books, incense, candles, sword, and other props for ritual.

As you can imagine it is very easy to utilize this room as my Intellectual Decompression Chamber. I have an old plastic table that was given to me by a female friend; she used to use it to read tarot cards in New Orleans. By placing a black cloth over it, it serves well as an altar.

For the most part my Satanism is kept secret, so when we have company over I simply lock all the Baphomets and other items in the closet with my books. No one so far has suspected my Satanism unless I have told them.

I have a walk-in closet in my "office" room at home. When the closet doors are closed, there's no sign that it's there. Then when I want to ritualize, I just open the doors. It's just deep enough to fit my altar with space above it for the Sigil, my books and other tools to one side, some ritual robes on hangers, etc.

I suppose I have an advantage in that there is no one that I have to hide my practices from. It brings a lot of opportunities to really go all in with decorations and creating a personal space. However...

...this concept excites me! Some place secret, that I own.

My husband doesn't mind my books, artifacts and so forth. But, all my stuff is safely in our room, and we rarely invite people there, so I don't feel the need to hide my things. My parents, however, are Christian (when it suits them) so I wouldn't dream of letting them in on my beliefs. I'm 36, but in my culture a child is never old enough for "tough love". So I just keep mum.

Yo uso una habitación de la casa, pintada de negro, ventanas y cristales incluidos (la opinión de los vecinos me importa bien poco) un cubo negro de madera como altar, un espejo negro que a cada lado tiene unas velas rojas. Sobre el espejo el sigilo pentagonal, el suelo forrado de madera negra da calidez. ¿Luz? Roja por supuesto (la única iluminación artificial. Atril para nuestro libro y el instrumental requerido, una túnica negra (lógico) simple. Trabajando descalzo como es tradición.
