Connect With Lunar and Seasonal Energy.

From the amazing Stacey Demarco we get this gorgeous lunar and seasonal diary to keep track of the movement of the moon and seasons through the wheel of the year. This full color diary, spiral bound to allow the pages to lay flat, full of knowledge but still with plenty of space to fill in your personal notes. It includes lunar timings, explanations of the moon phases and their impact on humanity, seasonal workings to make the most of each season’s energies, and packed with tips and techniques and spell timings. We also get a Wheel of the Year and how the witches’ sabbath are connected to the cycles of nature. There’s a section on matching crystals to specific lunar energies, specific cycles of the Wheel, and connecting them with Solar energy.

Each month has a in-depth look at a god or goddess as well, and tips on working with them and a spell connected with that deity. Each month also starts with deep thinking questions for the month. Then each month is broken into weekly pages for you to write in, but with interesting little tidbits of information on each day; usually just the moon phase but also sometimes questions, tips on when to cut or grow hair, and holidays and what to do on that day.

Not only is this a great diary for your spellcraft, it’s packed full of information and practical actions you can take towards being a better spell caster. Wether its tips on casting spells, covering spell timings and moon cycles, Astrological correspondences for sky moon phases of 2023, a lesson on elements and directions and the Wheel of the Year, how the moon influences our bodies, deities of the moon, lunar energies and crystals, the moon and plants, and an amazing section at the beginning to get a clear vision of the year ahead.

Final Thoughts

This lunar and seasonal diary is an amazing resource for all witches, from Baby Witches to our Elder Crones. It takes the guesswork out of working with lunar energies, planning our magickal years, and really, ourselves. Though some of the information felt a little light, it’s a great jumping off point for our own research, which we should be doing anyway if we really want to understand things on a deeper level. There’s tons of space for writing down thoughts for the day, or your card draw for the day, and the attention to detail allows us to plan our Craft to connect with the energies of Luna and the Seasons.

If you don’t already have a planner for your 2023’s spells and rituals, you can’t go wrong picking up a copy of this diary. And the best news about this diary is that there’s a Northern and Southern Hemisphere version!

Blessed Be My Witches!

About the Author:

Jonathan Dailey

Jonathan has been reading Tarot for over 33+ years. He has had many teachers, and has experienced many Spiritual Truths. He even had the honor of teaching a Beginner’s Tarot Reading class!

He has swam with Manta Rays, Sea Turtles, and Whales in Hawaii; ran barefoot in the jungle with the Ticos of Costa Rica; danced the Naraya with the Shoshone; Prayed at Buddhist Temples in Thailand, China, and Japan; wandered the green hills of Ireland, studied Acupuncture in China; and has had many more adventures!

Jonathan’s love of the Tarot started when he was in Summer Camp (in New Jersey of all places) and was privileged to take a class with a Magus who taught the group not only the Tarot, but also crystals, Runes, pendulums, energy work, spell casting, Past Life Regressions, and many other “New Age” practices. That class was one of the catalysts for Jonathan’s own Spiritual Awakening to his many past lives, and his Higher Purpose.

Jonathan is an Acupuncturist who has created his own style of acupuncture aided past life regressions using gold needles. Jonathan is a Certified Health Coach. He has lost count of how many readings he’s given, and decks he’s collected, over the last 3 decades. Find more from Jonathan on YouTube.
