Coloring Book of Shadows Planner for a Magical 2018 Review

Amy Cesari’s 2018 Book of Shadows Planner supports you without dictating a path. Monthly spells and rituals, monthly/weekly calendar spreads – Amy, you truly see us!

If you use Facebook, chances are you’re frequently spammed with targeted ads that have nothing to do with your real interests, so you can imagine my surprise—and skepticism—when the Coloring Book of Shadows Planner for a Magical 2018 came up in my sponsored ads. Suspicious. This looked like something I’d genuinely be interested in.

Reader, I did something I have never done before: I clicked on the link.

Amy Cesari’s website was wonderfully persuasive in drawing me in: Brief, to the point, and with the convenient option of purchasing her planner from Amazon.

On her website, Amy Cesaris gives examples of what to expect in the planner, including:

  • The wheel of the year
  • Pagan holidays
  • A reference of astrological signs and corresponding moon signs
  • Monthly spells and rituals
  • Plenty of space for notes
  • Much-needed monthly & weekly calendar spreads.

I hit order.

I’m glad I did. This planner reminds me of everything Emmi Miller describes in How to fit Colouring Books into your Planner. If you’re struggling to schedule a little bit of structured relaxation, this planner might be a good fit for you. I’ve already slipped a package of new gel pens next to this planner in preparation for the New Year.

As a non-Wiccan, I am often faced with a dilemma when it comes to purchasing almanacs or yearly workbooks. Will this be heavily goddess-focused? Will I have to work so hard to adapt it to my spiritual needs that I might just as  well buy a generic planner and add in what I need?

The Planner for a Magical Year can easily be used by those who practice Wicca or other branches of Paganism which utilize sympathetic magic without necessarily favouring one tradition over the other. Rituals are left loose. You can customize them into a more structured approach or practice them as-is during a hectic month.

This planner is ideal for those of us who struggle to fit spirituality into a chaotic work schedule. Each day of the week provides at-a-glance moon phases alongside a place to jot down notes. The start of each month provides the opportunity to record your goals, intuitions, reflections, and more.

The planner is available in both a slim paperback form and a spiral bound copy. The small size makes it easy to tuck it into purse or bag for referencing on the go.

I’m particular partial to the paperback version and look forward to sliding it onto my shelf next to my completed journals.
