Reading a Lunar Calendar for Magical Workings

Reading a Lunar Calendar for Magical Workings

Have you ever kept a Lunar calendar? It’s one of my favorite things for tracking my moon cycle, mood, and ritual practices. Here is the rundown of a Lunar calendar, but I recommend doing your own research if you’re as smitten by it as I am!

The moon is in a different astrology sign every 1-3 days. The energy of that sign in turn influences the mood of the day. For example, when the moon is in Cancer you might feel like a homebody, wanting to stay in your PJ’s and tend to family matters (great for building Altars!). You’ll be able to intuitively feel into the wisdom of your body through the energies of the moon phases, related astrology, and magical practices. You can simply google what sign the moon is in on any given day or keep a planner to jot down your Lunar associations, though a Lunar Calendar is always an amazing magical tool to have around!

Here is a list of the Astro Signs and their “flavor” or common characteristics. Use this to develop your own spell work (hop on the Seagrape Babes membership site or blog to learn more if you’d like some guidance), track the way you are affected emotionally, or to help you tap into different parts of your body while journaling. Is the Moon in Taurus? Time to tend to your home and beauty principles by adding some soft, sensual textures, cooking a meal with magical intention (and herbs), sweeping with intention (with a beautiful broom, of course), or burning a grounding candle. Spell work can be anything you do within a magical mind frame- even making your morning coffee if you whisper an intention into it.


If feeling creative, use the qualities of the elements each sign represents to influence your journal prompts or create little rituals like elemental Altars for yourself. Visit the Seagrape website for more magical ideas!
