B IS FOR BOOK of SHADOWS (BoS)
BOOK OF SHADOWS: a Wiccan practitioner’s book of spells, rituals, recipes, techniques, magic(k)al (see M is for Magic(k) on April 15) traditions, and other related materials and ephemera. Some Wiccans maintain a book separate from their BoS where they journal dreams, meditations, and reflections (called a Mirror Book or Book of Mirrors). Others roll journal and grimoire into a single volume. Both the format of the BoS (typed, handwritten, electronic, etc.) and the book’s contents will vary from practitioner to practitioner. Many Wiccan covens also keep a Book of Shadows to record and pass down information to initiates.
