Pagan New Moon Altar uses a solid black circular tablecloth to echo the new moon, with a beautiful rug below on top of a hardwood floor, and a purple backdrop or doorway cloth off to one side.

The cauldron is an important magical tool that combines the influences of the elements of air, fire, water, and earth. Its shape is representative of Mother Nature, and the three legs upon which it stands correspond to the three aspects of the Triple Goddess, the three lunar phases (waxing, full, and waning), and to three as a magical number. Additionally, the cauldron is a symbol of transformation (physical and spiritual), enlightenment, wisdom, the womb of the Mother Goddess, and rebirth.
