Through a Glass Darkly

The practice of Catoptromancy or divination by mirrors in Traditional Witchcraft

Through a Glass Darkly discusses methods for achieving effective scrying using black obsidian mirrors based upon the practices of the Coven of the Black Sun. In so doing the book examines the basic mechanics for piercing the veil and entering the Lunar Astral Plane where all magic must originate. It is by expression of your wilful intent in the Lunar Astral Plane that manifestation of your intent will occur in the Physical Plane in which we all dwell. Of all the divinatory arts, scrying is perhaps the most effective and versatile, and it is the tool of choice for many Witches, novice and expert alike. For individuals seeking an entry-level explanation of how Witchcraft works, this book reveals a straight-forward path towards understanding scrying.
