- I'm reorganizing my old Book of Shadows into what I'm calling a Mirror Book (because everything in the book is a reflection of myself and my practice at the time it was placed there). This involves completely overhauling any notes I already had as well as writing entirely new notes for things that have been added to my practice since I wrote the old BoS. It also involves figuring out a new layout/structure for the Book itself. Although I like the flow of information that I had before, I want the new Book to be convenient to search through while also condensing the notes to save paper and ink.
- Notes on divination are a major part of the Mirror Book. My notes on the 13 Witches' Runes and gemstones are basically done and just need to be printed. I don't use my pendulum as a divination tool by itself, so notes for it will be minimal/nonexistent. The Tarot section, however is shaping up to be massive, and it will be a long time before those are ready to add to the Book. I went through the companion books/little white booklets that came with each deck that I own, picked out the meanings from the flowery poetry/prose and moral discussions, and put them in Word documents, one for each card. Those documents also have a section for meanings that I created using the Keyword Kaleidoscope method, and one the personal sections are complete, I will sort out the most common meanings from all those sources and put those meanings in their own section (that way, each card has a section of common meanings followed by the sections of specific interpretations from myself or the deck that I am using in the reading). I may further sort the meanings by whether I consider them positive, neutral, or negative, and I will need to add a section for the Tarot of Bones once I have my copy. I also want to purchase the Ghost Tarot and the Chronicles of Destiny oracle deck (which will mean adding them to the Mirror Book), and I am considering other decks such as the Psycards, though I don't expect to buy any more decks other than those first two. Finally, I have a deck of regular playing cards that I may/probably will develop correspondences for.
- Non-divination-specific correspondences will take up very little space (most of my correspondences are/will be used in divination), but they are currently spread across many Word documents and notebook pages. I expect that reorganizing and condensing them won't take long.
- Since my path is focused on the Greek pantheon (not Hellenic Polytheism, per se, but drawing heavy inspiration from it because those Gods are the only ones I worship now), I am trying to figure out what notes to include in the Mirror Book related to those Gods and practices. I already have some notes on the structure of the pantheon and the ancient Greek language.
