You have probably already heard about a Book of Shadows (or BOS for short), but don't know where to find one. The thing about a BOS is, you don't find one; you make one. Every BOS is as unique as the Pagan themselves. A BOS is any and/or all information a Pagan wants to safe keep and maybe even pass down later on. It may have some history, information on the Deities, Divination techniques, Astrology information, and some reference pages like correspondence tables and charts, tools of Witchcraft, Elements and recommended lists. My BOS is simply a 1 1/2in 3-ring binder with dividers to separate each section. I decorated the front cover myself and that's that. No fancy artwork on the pages. No big padlock on the outside. It's very simple and inexpensive. I prefer to use the binder so I can add things, change things and keep it organized. I'm a pretty organized person, so your BOS won't look the same as mine, of course, even if it does have the same information. I made a list of the sections and sub-categories I have in my BOS. You can use this form or use another one that is more comfortable to you. Whatever makes you, you. Please feel free to use any of the information on this website and put it in your Book of Shadows.
