Overview

All One Wicca:
A Study in The Universal Eclectic Wiccan Tradition
Book Two: A Grimoire

SNEAK PEAK:

One of the tools of ancient sorcery and Witchcraft was the Grimoire. More than a book of “spells,” the Grimoire was an instruction manual, telling the Witch or Sorcerer many of the “secrets” of the universe. I’ve gathered together thirteen secrets from a number of Grimoires and Books of Shadows, both modern and ancient, for the use of the solitary and coven Wiccan with no grimoire of his/her own. The information here is not wholly Wiccan, and what is Wiccan is not wholly Universal Eclectic Wiccan, but anyone with an interest in old ways may find much of what lies within useful. My suggestion is that one use this as a starter grimoire, building their own from this point forward. I’m a bit of an old mule in my separation of the Grimoire and the Book of Light, I know that many gather it all into one great tome, with all their little bits of knowledge interspersed with prayers and rituals, but I like to keep them only partially together, if at all. The first three ring binder I bought spared me endless rewrites in blank books, and since then I’ve never kept a tome in anything else. I can’t give enough praise for expandable tomes, so if you desire to separate your Sacred Book into Grimoire, Journal and Book of Light, consider that each side will grow at a different rate and leave space accordingly.

As a Teacher, one of my strongest problems is my handwriting, my students will twist and turn their head trying to figure out the peculiar backslant that my notes and journals are inscribed in. As a result, I have since turned to a computer and printer instead of a blank book and a pen. My feelings are mixed, on one hand, a floppy Grimoire just doesn’t seem to “feel” very Pagan, but on the other, my students look over my notes and understand them. I’ve decided that it is I, not the computer, who is doing the writing, and that it is more important to be legible than traditional. Much of what I studied in writing All One Wicca were personal journals, so I realize that with the changing of technology my disks will become obsolete. As a result, I print everything out in duplicate. Hopefully, if Wicca becomes suppressed, these printouts will not read like some of the “translations” of the great metaphysicists of the past, with the word “Illegible” in the middle of a spell or worse, the translator’s best guess.

All One Wicca:
A Study in The Universal Eclectic Wiccan Tradition Book Two: A Grimoire:Section 1:Altars and Altar Cloths

Altars and Altar cloths:
”An Altar should be made from wood, no metal, excepting those Altars with compartments in which to hide the Blessed Book, which may contain metal if the metal is needed for the hidden space.” -A Fam-trad

”We crafted our Altar from an old tree stump and by the second year it had been sprinkled so often that the wood had somehow sprouted a new tree....S suggested a mirrored Altar for the moonlight rituals.....this felt to us like it doubled the full moon that night.”-Wolf Moon Coven

The Altar is the sacred space upon which tools are kept. Two main forms of Altars exist, round or pentagonal altars which stand in the middle of the circle or rectangular ones placed against walls or the far east of the circle. Both are fairly simple to make, although a pentagonal altar requires more work. Decorator tables are good, cheap altars, but can’t hold much weight. Chief among the “bonuses” of decorator tables is the fact that they either fold up or have removable legs for storage and transport. Some decorator tables are all wood instead of wood and metal, fulfilling the requirements of some trads.
To make a round altar simply, take a wooden crate and glue a round piece of plywood to it, or attach three, four or five equal length “legs” to a single piece. One modern Book of Shadows suggests five decorative posts, cut at slight angles, glued with silicone to a plate glass mirror. If you have a root worker who twists willow roots into stands and chairs, that would make a sturdier stand for a mirrored altar. Mirrored altars are fairly new, although The Sacred book of one Fam-trad has a reference to a two-hundred year old one. As a practical matter, mirrored altars double your light, but they also scratch, break, and weigh a lot. They are wonderful stationary altars outside or in, but lousy if you plan to move a lot.
A “T” altar is easy to make, simply glue three pieces of wood together , for strength, add a fourth or fifth. They tend to tip when built too narrowly, so be careful.
