From this shield she fashioned the first magic mirror. One side was endowed with the power of Ra’s eye so that the seeker could see everything, no matter how distant in miles or how far into the future. The other side showed the gazer in his or her true light and only a brave or pure person could look without flinching.
Hathor mirrors were originally made of polished silver or bronze with an image of Hathor on the handle, but you can work with a single–sided conventional mirror with a handle. Years ago dressing table sets with embossed handled mirrors were very common and these can still be picked up cheaply from garage sales and are absolutely perfect. You may also find a Hathor metal mirror in a museum shop. There are a number of on-line museum shops and it is well worth seeking one out for pride of place in your temple.
But of course you can use any round mirror and some practitioners of Hathor magic prefer to use a swivel mirror on a stand. You can also adapt a highly polished plain silver or pewter tray.
As well as being potent for bringing to the surface issues concerning personal identity and potential areas of development, mirror divination is, as it was in Ancient Egypt, effective for discovering the identity of a future partner, and for answering questions about love, fidelity, marriage and permanent love relationships, fertility, family concerns and for discovering the location of an item or animal that is lost or the truth about a matter that is hidden from you.
I find drawing the images and then sitting quietly gazing at them in candlelight, will allow the unconscious mind to make sense of them.
It may also be that sounds, impressions or fragrances formed part of the mirror scrying experience. All the psychic senses are linked and the more you work on the spiritual plane, the more readily your other psychic sense become part of what will eventually be a multi-sensory psychic experience. Whenever you come across a new symbol, add it to the Book of Egypt. You will also the more you work, add new meanings to existing symbols and in time a major image may fill a whole page.
From this early mirror work evolved a series of rules for mirror scrying that have survived into modern magic. However, you may prefer not to use them if they conflict with your more spontaneous interpretations.
