Wow! It’s been a while since I have written. Forgive me everyone. It’s one thing after another with the health and all. So we all know that the Book of Shadows (BOS) is one of the most important tool to the Witch. However, how many do you think you should have? Do you think there should be a set number? Should there be a certain way you should style it? What are your thoughts?
Well here are my thoughts. First, I think there is no set number on the BOS. You could have 50 if you wanted. It would be a lot to keep up with, but hey you’re the witch and if you want to work it that way, go for it. Second, no, there is no set number. So if there is someone saying that there is a set number, tell them they are wrong or just don’t talk to them. Third, there is no certain style. I watched a bunch of witch movies when I was young and I always loved the traditional black grimoire looking book. However, nowadays, the BOS can be a notebook till you can purchase something else, it can be a plain journal, a scrapbook, or any other things.
The reason why I wanted to start this conversation is because I am starting a smaller BOS. My bigger one is locked away somewhere and I am taking the time to make a small BOS because it is important to me to have the correspondences and all the information I need. It is small enough to fit in my purse so that it can come with me. It is a black journal and I am using black pen for it. For the correspondences, like the sun phases, I made a sun sign at the end.
So use your imagination. Let me know what you think.
