Term: Catoptromancy

DEFINITIONS

Catoptromancy: Divination by gazing in a mirror (such as a black scrying mirror).
source: Shadow Magick Compendium, by Raven Digitalis

Catoptromancy:

Divination with mirrors. There are two basic forms: One uses mirrors made from special metals associated with planetary lore, and the other special gazing mirrors used somewhat like crystal balls.

  • Sun Mirrors made of gold were consulted on Sundays to discover information concerning authority figures. 
  • Moon Mirrors are consulted on Mondays to help with dream interpretation. 
  • Mars Mirrors made of iron are consulted on Tuesdays in regards to lawsuits and arguments. 
  • Mercury Mirrors, consisting of a glass globe filled with liquid mercury, were consulted on Wednesdays regarding business and money. 
  • The Venus Mirror made of copper is consulted on Fridays regarding questions of love. 
  • The Saturn mirror made of lead is consulted on Saturdays to find lost objects and uncover secrets.

Consulting a reflective mirror means to focus on the question or matter of concern, asking specific questions if possible, and then letting yourself slide into a light trance to find the answers.

The other form of mirror is the Magick Mirror made of a concave clock glass painted black on the convex side. The mirror is sometimes placed on black velvet, or mounted in a convenient frame, allowing one to gaze at the unpainted side. The Magick Mirror is ideal to use as an aid in general clairvoyance
