Grimoire Inspiration: Recording Astrological Information

Witchcraft is a deeply personal practice and our grimoires, our altars and our lives are all uniquely different from one another. I feel like it’s always helpful though for witches, especially solitary witches, to see what others are doing and how others practice. This outside influence can introduce us to new ideas and new elements of our practice that we may not have considered before.

That’s why I’m sharing this series of posts featuring photos of different elements of my own grimoire as inspiration. First, I shared inspiration for materia medica and herb profile pages and for crystal profile pages. Today, I’m sharing inspiration for recording astrological information in your grimoire. Astrology is a big part of my practice so a large section of my grimoire is dedicated to it. These pages aren’t quite as pretty or as interactive as the crystal and herb pages, but they are packed with information that is important to my practice.

The information that I record about each astrological sign includes:

  • Symbol
  • Mode
  • Planetary Ruler (with description)
  • Natural House (with description)
  • Element
  • Color(s)
  • Area of the Body
  • Herbs
  • Crystals
  • Natural Energies

I also record the energies and themes that each sign takes on when in each phase of the moon. Specifically, I try to record the following themes for each sign:

  • An intention to set when the new moon is in that sign
  • An action to take when the waxing moon is in that sign
  • Something to celebration when the full moon is in that sign
  • Something to let go of when the waning moon is in that sign

This is really helpful when creating moon rituals and determining how the moon might affect you on a particular day. I like to read the appropriate section from my grimoire each morning when I get up to prepare for the day, (although this is dependent on me getting up early enough to get ready!)

Do you record astrological information in your grimoire and, if so, what do you focus on?
