A magickal almanac is produced on a yearly basis. It includes moon phases, moon in the signs, planetary information, important historical dates of interest to the magickal community, planting and harvesting dates, Pagan holidays and articles geared toward magickal readers. Most magickal people learn to rely on a magickal almanac for choosing the bast day and time for planning rituals, spellcasting, divination, and other magical endeavors.
I have include in my almanac the date; the moon phase; the moon sign; times of the moon phase change; time of the moon v/c (void of course);time of moon's entry to a new sign; time when a planet turns direct or retrograde and well as the color and incense of the day. There is also historical information on some of the dates as well as holidays both Pagan and Christian.
