I rarely read Facebook ads. Like many, I simply scroll by. Whenever the Writual Planner appeared in my news feed, however, I was intrigued and decided to explore a bit more. What I found was amazing.

This is the Cadillac of Tarot planners. At first glance, it appears overwhelming because there is so much great information in it, but don't let that deter you. This planner is very user friendly. The instructions are simple and easy to follow. Once read, the seeker can navigate the planner with ease.

The first portion of the planner is the Astrological Reference Guide. It's an extensive astrological database that gives the seeker everything they need to integrate astrology with tarot. What makes this so convenient, is that everything is at the seeker's fingertips. There is no need to go to another book or a search engine. Everything one needs to know is right here. There are charts for retrograde days, eclipses, moon and void of course, and so much more; and it is all right at the seekers' fingertips. There are spreads for new and full moon readings, as well as monthly, daily and even a yearly spread as well. There is also a place to make one's own birth chart.

The planner is wonderfully versatile when it comes to other methods of divination. Oracle Cards, Lenormand and even Rune castings are quite doable with this planner. Experiment and see what works best. There are also journaling sections throughout the planner where the reader can chart their goals for days, weeks months, or even do an annual forecast. There is also a habit tracker and a section for notes. For those who are interested, there is also a Writual Community Society that one can join. You can also purchase Tarot stickers and stamps for the planner as well.

This planner is a bit expensive, but for what you get, it's well worth the price. For those of us on a budget but are aching to get their hands on a copy, a printable PDF is available for half the price of the spiral bound book.

I absolutely love this planner. It works well on so many levels. I use it for daily spreads, goal setting, habit tracking as well as for self care. I practice magick with my Tarot and I find this planner a superb tool for working a spell or constructing a ritual. Again, it's a bit pricey, but considering how well thought out this planner is, the copious amount of information inside, the  beauty of the illustrations, and how easy and fun it is to use, it's well worth the price.
