How To Create A Wiccan Book Of Shadows

Updated on August 19, 2013

Each Wiccan Book Of Shadows Is Different

Ever wondered how to create a Book of Shadows before? You will find a comprehensive list of items that nearly every Wiccan Book of Shadows should include. Creating a Wiccan Book Of Shadows can be a fun experience, just as much as educational. Your ability to personalize your Wiccan Book of Shadows, is what makes each and every Book of Shadows different.

Don't Forget

Please don't forget to add to the list of your favorite Wiccan Sites toward the bottom, and add your 2 cents of feedback at the very bottom of the page.


Creating A Book Of Shadows Is Easy and Fun!

Creating a Wiccan Book of Shadows is not as hard as many think. There isn't any one way to make a book of shadows. One of the few times that they may be similar is if a coven has one general Book of Shadows that they use for their entire coven's needs. More seasoned believers normally will have multiple Wiccan Book of Shadows, as they usually will create one for teaching others, while a second is for their personal use only. The what is known as Teaching Book of Shadows is normally reserved for use by neophytes that may have an interest in joining a ritual.


"And Ye Harm None, Do As Thou Will"

Wiccan Dedication Page

Include any information on your "Year in a Day", and the dedication date to the Wiccan Beliefs. Have both a start, and end date on your Year in a Day, and when the date of creation for your personal Wiccan Book of Shadows was created.
