About the Book of Shadows
In Wicca and Witchcraft, "Book of Shadows" refers to a private record of spellwork, rituals, and magickal experiences. The name is a reference to times when such writings would have needed to stay hidden in a secret place.
Both solitary Witches and covens may keep a Book of Shadows. In covens, the Book (or portions of it) are passed on to initiates as they earn access to the coven's inner teachings. Multiple members of a coven may contribute spells, invocations and visions to a shared Book of Shadows. These books can become quite elaborate and beautiful with their accumulated content.
For the Witch working alone, the Book of Shadows is an invaluable tool. In these pages, you may keep track of tools and techniques that worked (or didn't work) in the past, and get a solid view of your magickal progress.
The pentacle is an ancient symbol with many varied meanings. In modern Paganism, the pentagram, or five-pointed star, is said to represent the four elements united by Spirit. The pentagram is also an emblem of Man, with the five points representing the five senses and five points on the human body (head, arm, and legs). When enclosed in a circle, it is called a pentacle and symbolizes completeness, balance, and perfection.
The pentacle has always been regarded as a strongly protective emblem. In medieval times it was used to ward off evil spirits and magicians still use it to banish unwanted forces and energies. Many Wiccans and other Pagans use the pentacle as a protective seal or as a symbol of their faith and place in the Universe.
