I’m sharing with you my December Astro Journal flip through.
I’ve been journaling for years and I do dabble with all sorts of journals spreads, but this month I got a bit more organized and have got some images to show you of the journal pages I created for December 2021.
This page shows all the important astrological ingresses, lunar phases and planetary retrogrades for the month.
I also draw the zodiac in the natural position with Aries at the Ascendant point.
You’ll notice that I colour my zodiac signs in specific colours and these are related to the colour wheel.
The fire signs are the primary colours, so Aries is red, Leo is yellow and Sagittarius is blue.
The air signs are the secondary colours so Gemini is orange, Libra is green and Aquarius is violet.
Then the earth and water signs become the tertiary colours, so we have Taurus is tangerine Cancer is apricot, Virgo is chartreuse or lime green, Scorpio is turquoise, Capricorn is purple and Pisces is magenta.
On the outer ring I show how all the planets move during December.
Many planets stay in the same sign, some planets change signs and one planet is stations retrograde.
Main Lunar Phases
I also indicate the four main Lunar phases of New Moon, First Quarter, Full Moon and Last Quarter.
Wheel of the Year
My Yule page is an acknowledgement of the wheel of the year as the Sun enters Capricorn on December 21 we are at the solstice.
I have the symbol for Yule in the top left and on the top right has an oakleaf to symbolize the movement from the Holly King to the Oak King which happens on Yule.
Yule and the solstice is the actual beginning of the wheel of the year.
It’s the dead of winter. In my drawing that I have a yule log burning in the fire. The idea is that you get one long big tree which is your you’ll log and you stick the fat and into the fireplace and you liked it on December 21 and as it slowly burns you push the tree into the great and I delete should be in for at least 12 days.
Dark to Light
Yule is a time where we are symbolizing the shift from the dark and we start to slowly move into the light.
This time of the year is symbolized by candles the fire and brightness.
December 21st is the shortest day of the year it is also known as the Roman festival of Saturnalia.
Saturn rules Capricorn so it all fits in quite neatly.
Month Calendar Full Page Spread
The monthly full spread is where I will put all my student classes and events.
It also works as a content calendar for my videos and blogs.
I have colored in every planetary movement and the Moon’s phases.

A Yod is an astrological planetary configuration also know as a major aspect pattern which is formed when three planets line-up in a particular way.
A yod looks like a triangle. See image.
