The mirror signifies truth, self-knowledge, wisdom, and
the soul. It is considered to be a reflection of the supernatural or divine intelligence behind creativity. The mirror also
symbolizes the moon, due to its ability to reflect light.
Magickally, the mirror can be used to divine the future,
create protective devices, and look into your own nature.
The art of divining the future by gazing into a mirror
appears throughout the history of western mysticism. A devotee of the goddess Demeter gazed into a sacred spring and
predicted the harvest. It is believed that Catherine de Medici,
a reputed Witch, depended on mirror divination to guide
her through the tangled affairs of state in 16th century France.
Directions for divining the future can be found in the
Grimorium Verum, published in 1517.
