I love keeping journals, about anything and everything. Along with my Book of Shadows and my Grimoire, I also keep a series of journals on different topics. One of them being a Lunar journal.
I am creating a short article on what a Lunar journal is, and what you can keep within it. These items could also be kept in a Moon journal area within your Book of Shadows or Grimoire, so they’re not exclusive to their own journal book.
Because a large portion of rituals and spell work are carried out according to phases of the moon, it is quite beneficial to keep a journal which will aid you in keeping track of practices and results.
My Lunar journal serves as an addition to the Grimoire, where information on energies, research, work, and results are kept. Below are just some of the things that can be tracked in a Lunar journal.
Lunar Journal Ideas and Prompts
Lunar affirmations, poetry, and favorite or inspirational quotes
Names are the significance of full moons for every month of the year

I hope these prompts help you in creating your very own Lunar Journal or help add to the Moon sections of your Book of Shadows or Grimoire.
A witches’ connection to the Moon and its energies is one not to be neglected or ignored.
