A Book of Shadows is one of the most important parts of a witch's magickal practice. It is where a witch stores spells, recipes, personal thoughts and feelings. It is best to use a book of shadows made out of natural materials if you intend to bring in circle with you, because man made chemicals like plastics interfere with the magickal energies during ritual work.
Our Triquetra/Tree of life BOS is bound in dark brown soft leather and features a hand-embossed triquetra as the trunk a tree of life on the upper right corner with a metal clasp closure with approximately 200 blank ivory coloured pages.
The Triquetra symbolizes the three faces of the Goddess, balance of the Mind, Body and Spirit. The circle signifies the ever-turning cycle of life, death and rebirth. Germanic neopagan groups who use the Triquetra to symbolize their faith generally believe it is originally of Norse and Germanic origins. The symbol is also sometimes used by wiccans and some new agers to symbolize the Triple Goddess, or as a protective symbol.
In Wicca, trees are living things that are filled with the essence and energy of the Elements and the Divine. The Tree of Life also shows you how everything is connected; from the smallest organisms to our Earth being a part of the solar system, and the solar system being connected to the galaxies beyond.
