How to Make a Scrying Mirror

A magick scrying mirror can be one of the Wiccan’s best tools for divination. In order to cast this spell, you will need:

  • A mirror or other object with a reflective surface – black obsidian is a popular choice, as are normal mirrors that have been painted black.
  • Mugwort infusion

To make the mugwort infusion, place the mugwort in a jar (make sure the jar has a tight lid). Fill it all the way to the top. Meanwhile, bring some water to the boil. Once the water has boiled, pour it into the jar until it covers the mugwort, and screw the lid on tightly. Mugwort is a powerful herb to consecrate your tools, and has long been used as an aid in divination.

Let the mugwort infusion steep until it is lukewarm – the time needed will of course depend on the size of the jar.  Once the infusion is ready, strain it and remove the herbs. Pour the infusion in a chalice.

Consecrating the Magick Scrying Mirror

Center and ground yourself, then cast your circle.  You may call upon a deity of divination, such as Brigid, Cerridwen, Hermes, Freya, Odin or Hecate, to name a few. It is important that you feel an affinity with your deity of choice.

Once your circle is cast, bring the chalice with the infusion and the mirror together. Clear your mind completely, and while bathing the mirror in the mugwort infusion, envision the mirror awakening to you and your own psychic abilities.

Chant the following, 9 times, while you are consecrating the mirror:

Lovely oracle of magick worth,

Fair creature of psychic light,

The truest answers, you shall bring forth,

You shall be my eyes, my sight

It is done. So mote it be.


Successfully performing a spell is an art that comes about with practice. The better you are at working with magickal energy, the better your results will be.  The Essence of Magick is a guide which teaches you how to cast spells that work.
