A Modern Witch’s Guide to Living By the Wheel of the Year

It’s very likely that you already know what your zodiac sign is. It’s possible that you even know what your moon and rising signs are. But did you know that the entire calendar year is associated with all of the astrological signs and houses, with every season corresponding to a sign for very specific purposes? I’ve been a witch for years and I recently just discovered this myself, thanks to two of the greatest books about astrology and magick that I have ever come across.

Every season of our lives is broken down into the houses of astrology to correspond with specific energies that enhance certain areas of our reality, allowing us to heal, find direction spiritually when we get lost, provide insights into who we truly are, and help us manifest the life that we dream of. By utilizing the following herbs, crystals, foods, and other materials that correspond with each season and zodiac sign, you will develop a deep spiritual connection with your Higher Self and the entire universe, enhancing your intuition and providing you with an inner peace you’ve never known.

A few examples of putting these correspondences to use would be finding the zodiac sign that we are currently positioned in, taking a look at the list of herbs and other materials for that sign and season, and utilizing them in the following ways:

  • Applying scented oils, plant-enhanced waters, or plant-based resins to magickal tools in order to charge them
  • Putting dried herbs, flower, bark, or leaves from corresponding plants and trees in talismans and amulets
  • Burning incense to send prayers and messages to the Divine
  • Scenting or dressing candles with herbs and oils
  • Cleansing your sacred space by burning purifying herbs

According to Skye Alexander, author of Magickal Astrology, “By aligning yourself with the cycle of the seasons and the twelve-point pattern of the zodiac wheel, you’ll likely arrive at a deeper, more harmonious connection with the earth and the heavens – which can also enhance your magick work.” Having a basic knowledge and understanding of the twelve zodiac signs and their effect on the world enables you to create more powerful, effective spells and rituals through utilizing the planetary positions and energies. Let’s take a look at the astrological year, beginning with Aries.

Aries – Zodiac Wheel of the Year

Aries

Planetary Ruler: Mars
Color: Red, Orange
Gemstones: Diamond, Bloodstone, Red Sardonyx, Carnelian, Red Jasper

Each year the sun enters Aries on the spring equinox, approximately March 21st, and stays there through April 19th. This is the period of inception, the starting point, the beginning of new life, when the earth awakens in a burst of enthusiasm. Aries energy is raw, primal, vigorous, dynamic, assertive, spontaneous, and masculine. As a cardinal fire sign, Aries represents spirit in action, inspiration, and the drive to break free from the collective to express the self independently.

“Aries is the eternal child of promise, that is the first spark that is separate from the Source of all. Aries discovers selfhood through a head long rush into the universe that is new and fresh because it is seen as new through the eyes of Aries. As Aries matures, the quest is for true identity.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Aries Energy

This is the time to stand up for yourself, to push for exactly what you want. While the sun is in Aries, make connections with nature’s first rush of life and move outward into the world, embracing life’s challenges and journey. Focus on yourself and what you need to feel fulfilled. Be bold, take risks, meet new people, start a project, experiment, enjoy pleasures. Don’t deliberate – act.

While the sun is in Aries, work magick to inspire, bless, or begin new endeavors, especially those you want to happen quickly. At this time, you can also work magick to overcome obstacles, meet challenges, break away from someone else’s influence, or stimulate movement in stagnant situations. Spells to increase physical vitality can also benefit from the energy of Aries.


Taurus – Zodiac Wheel of the Year

Taurus

Planetary Ruler: Venus
Color: Green
Gemstones: Emerald, Jade, Turquoise, Aventurine, Chrysoprase

The sun enters Taurus from approximately April 20th to May 20th. This is a period of growth and fertilization, when life on earth truly begins to blossom. Seeds planted and ideas conceived during Aries now germinate and begin to grow. Taurus’s energy is slow and steady, nurturing, tactile, stabilizing, enduring, fruitful, acquisitive, and feminine. A fixed earth sign, Taurus represents manifestation, the urge to form a creative union through which somethin tangible and permanent can be built.

“Taurus comes after Aries’ fiery arc and lands to deeply root itself in the Earth. Taurus now uses the senses to closely examine the qualities of physical existence, and that is how Taurus explores the world. As Taurus matures, the quest is for personal meaning and worth.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Taurus Energy

This is the time to bring ideas down to earth and apply them in practical ways. Use your resources – talents, money, and psychic abilities – to produce something functional and lasting. Financial and material considerations may become a focus now.

While the sun is in Taurus, examine your values and what brings you self-worth. Pay attention to beauty, experience the sensory realm, enjoy your own body, establish bonds with other people, and be creative. Perform magick to generate abundance in all areas of your life. This is a good month to work spells for prosperity, career success, love, fertility, artistic inspiration, and security. Sex magick can be incredibly powerful now. Taurus’s energy can also help increase physical strength or sexual prowess.


Gemini – Zodiac Wheel of the Year

Positive Aspects: Versatility, Curiosity, Communication, Adaptability
Negative Aspects: Superficiality, Fickle, Scattered, Restless

The sun is in Gemini from May 21st to June 20th. This is a period of interaction and dispersion. Energy that became concrete during Taurus now moves freely from place to place. As you expand outwardly from a small circle of loved ones into the larger community, social activities and exchanging information become crucial. Gemini’s energy is mental, changeable, curious, adaptable, versatile, quick, and androgynous. A mutable air sign, Gemini represents the impulse to learn, experience, and share with others.

“Gemini takes flight, exchanging roots for winged sandals, to discover all that can be thought about and talked about. With Gemini’s enthusiasm for cataloging the world also comes a great desire to share all their discoveries. As Gemini matures, the quest is for finding their other self and with it a center around which facts and ideas can revolve.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Gemini Energy

This is the time to work on growing your network of personal contacts, to establish or deepen friendships and business associations, and to get involved with your community. Explore the world of ideas and communicate with others. Learn new skills, read, write, study, stretch your mental capabilities, and indulge your curiosities.

While the sun is in Gemini, focus on using mental imagery and doing verbal spells. Try including affirmations or incantations in your magick work. Study magickal traditions and practices or learn by interacting with others on your path. This is a great time to connect with your spirit guides, use telepathy to contact people you can’t reach, or send messages/requests to deities. Spells to promote business transactions or communication with others can benefit from Gemini energy.

The sun enters Cancer on the summer solstice, around June 21st, and remains until about July 22nd. Cancer represents the urge to put down roots, to connect with your heritage and past, to establish security within your community, and to protect all that is important to you. Energy that was scattered freely while the sun was in Gemini is now gathered and used to nurture the inner self. A cardinal water sign, Cancer is sensitive, private, emotional, nurturing, unstable, possessive, and feminine.

“Cancer completes the Elemental Quartet started by Aries, diving down into the waters of emotion. Cancer wishes to feel every emotion and yet seeks the safety of being both protected and protecting those whom they love. The challenge is to learn the gentle side of parenting including becoming a parent to their own soul. As Cancer matures, the quest is to find fulfillment through fulfillment through family whether that be family of blood, family choice, or both.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Cancer Energy

This is the time to turn inward and nurture your sense of power, security, and emotional stability. Now is a good time to examine your childhood and how events from your past will influence you now. Familial bonds can be strengthened or expanded during this time.

While the sun is in Cancer, work on developing your intuitive skills. This is also a good time to bless and protect your home and family, do fertility work, or focus on past-life regression work.

Now is the time to focus on your creativity in every way available to you. Focus on what you love and what gives you a sense of purpose and identity, as these are your gifts to the world. Leo’s energy is exuberant, radiant, self-centered, dramatic, imaginative, and masculine. A fixed fire sign, Leo represents the desire to express your true self and to produce offspring, whether these are children of the mind or body.

“Leo begins the second Elemental set and lights the flame of centeredness that calls forth individuality and the search for personal wholeness. This flame in turn calls forth the need to express the will. Leo explores the world through the light of self-knowledge and expresses self-mastery through its relationships to others. As Leo matures, the quest is to achieve a world that is enriched by their light.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Leo Energy

This is the time to express yourself in a creative way, whether you think of yourself as an artist or not. Focus on discovering what’s special about you and use your talents and skills in ways that bring you pleasure. Now is the time to relax, enjoy, and let your inner beauty shine through. Focus on yourself and what brings you a sense of pleasure and satisfaction.

While the sun is in Leo, work magick to enhance your self-esteem, leadership qualities, social status, career, or reputation. Those who are artistic particularly benefit from magick that improves the imagination and creativity. Love spells can also get a powerful boost from Leo energy.

One of the busiest times of the year, this month relates to work. Virgo represents the impulse to do something useful in the world and be of help to others. A mutable earth sign, Virgo is orderly, practical, compassionate, modest, analytical, sensitive, and feminine.

“Virgo wants to fin all that is pure and wholesome on the Earth plane so that they can find service that is significant. In Virgo, the Element of Earth is ever-changing, with the subtle being separated from the coarse, then becoming mingled again so that the process of purification can evolve. As Virgo matures, the quest is to achieve personal wholeness at the same time that personality refinement continues.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Virgo Energy

This is the time to dive head first into work and business-related relationships. Ground big ideas and find resourceful ways to apply them. Practice efficiency and organization, refine your standards and procedures, and use this time to tie up any loose ends. Be sure to pay attention to your lifestyle and diet now and focus on taking care of yourself.

While the sun is in Virgo, perform magick work to improve your situation in your career and/or business relationships. This is also a good time to utilize the magickal properties of plants, especially in healing work.

The sun enters Libra on the autumn equinox, around September 23rd, and remains until October 22nd. This is a time of partnership and unification. Libra represents the urge to complement your own energies with those of anther person, to balance yin and yang in a harmonious manner. During this phase in the cycle of growth, individual desires become less important than the relationship. A cardinal air sign, Libra is adaptable, refined, passive, calm, indecisive, unemotional, sociable, and objective.

“Libra is the beginning of the second half of the Zodiac. As its opposite, Aries began the work of the self, Libra is the beginning of focus on others and of learning to bringing balance to relationships with other beings. Here the power of Air to carry words, thoughts, and visions is used to determine what is needed to create harmony. As Libra matures, the quest is to breathe cosmic order, beauty, into the world.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Libra Energy

This is the time to work on strengthening relationships in love and/or business. Focus on compromising and respecting the words of others as well as your own. Search for fairness and balance in all relationships. Instead of working towards your own goals, work on helping others with their goals for the better of all. Social events are preferable this month.

For an extra boost, perform love spells while the sun is in Libra. This is a great time to do magick to enhance work relationships or to attract people that can assist you in improving your social and business goals.

The sun is in Scorpio from October 23rd through November 21st. This is the time of death and rebirth, when the last of the harvest are plowed under to fertilize the earth. At this time, the life force withdraws from the world of activity and turns inward. Scorpio’s energy is passionate, intense, destructive, regenerative, controlling, and feminine. A fixed water sign, Scorpio represents the urge to dive to the depths of your emotions to destroy old patterns and make room for new growth.

“Scorpio is the deep water so filled with the magnetic power of attraction that it wishes to merge with other waters, but to do so it must find serenity. In Scorpio, Fixed Water pushes against boundaries, discovering secrets and mysteries, experiencing death and rebirth in the process of merging with others. As Scorpio matures, the quest is to learn to love themselves in order to love others, with trust earned from experience to experience.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Scorpio Energy

While the sun is in Scorpio, perform magick work to break bad habits and behaviors that may be hindering you. Problems surrounding control and power may surface during this time. Analyze long-term fears, blockages, and emotional conditions and patterns that may be a result of childhood experience or past lifetimes. Counseling through psychology is especially useful at this time.

Scorpio is associated with magick, occult power, and the hidden realms, so now would be a good time to engage in most magick work. For an extra boost during magick work and rituals, work on shapeshifting, past-life regression, sex magick, divination, shamanic journeying, and prosperity spells at this time.

Sagittarius energy is restless, curious, sociable, lively, changeable, optimistic, boundless, and masculine. A mutable fire sign, it represents the desire to break past boundaries and push beyond the limits, to reach for dreams and new ideas, and to share your discoveries with others.

“Sagittarius is the Fire that changes; it is a small flame, the multitude of the flaming stars, gazing at the brilliance at the center. Sagittarius sees how they act in concert, and revels in this dance of life. Seeing all shapes that Fire takes, Sagittarius tries to discover what shapes the Fire. As Sagittarius matures, the quest is the search for knowledge that in time transforms into wisdom.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Sagittarius Energy

Now is the time for intellectual pursuits. Spiritual studies, mythology, psychology, and philosophy offer new and deeper insights. This is a great time to increase your knowledge of other cultures and understanding of the world through travel. Focus on increasing your knowledge of magickal traditions through studying and practicing. This is also the perfect time for shamanic journeying an vision quests.

This is a time of accomplishment in the material world, of identifying and performing the role you play in your own life’s story. Capricorn’s energy is practical, enduring, tenacious, steady, materialistic, reserved, and feminine. A cardinal earth sign, it represents the desire to achieve goals and dreams, promote stability, and build a foundation for the future.

“Capricorn is the will of Earth to arise from the depths and to build the world in the image of what it envisions. Capricorn is keenly aware of the challenges of matter – time, limits, and inertia – and through these finds dharma. Here the great choice is to commit or not to commit to the struggle needed to rise up. As Capricorn matures, the quest for certainty and merit becomes tempered with faith that they will reach again the top of the mountain.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Capricorn Energy

Now is the time to focus on career goals and possibly the mark that you want to make on the world. Use this time to create foundations for the future, determine goals, identify your role in the community, and work toward objectives at a steady pace. Pay attention to material and financial issues and focus on the basic concerns and bringing your dreams into reality.

While the sun is in Capricorn, focus on magick to find a job, move up in your profession, or improve your reputation. Prosperity spells to bless a business are incredibly potent right now. Binding spells and spells that set limits can be more potent during this time too.

The sun enters Aquarius on January 20th and remains until February 18th. This is a time of breaking down old patterns and cycles to make room for new ones. Rigid structures are replaced with more relaxed situations that are beneficial to humanity, rather than a privileged few. Aquarius’s energy is rebellious, independent, sociable, impersonal, unpredictable, idealistic, and masculine. A fixed air sign, it represents the desire for liberation and change.

“Aquarius is Fixed Air, so it is ideas, abstractions, that seek to come into physical reality for the benefit of the group, the community. Aquarius is drawn to the ideal and stimulation of potential inherent in the world. As Aquarius matures, the quest is to find the balance of being unique while serving the common good.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Aquarius Energy

Now is the time to make big changes in your life. Open yourself up to new people and experiences. Take risks, practice being spontaneous, and enjoy friendships and group activities. Now is also a good time for intellectual pursuits, like furthering your education. Express all of the things that are different about you and use this energy to stop worrying about what others think. This is a good time to utilize astrological knowledge.

Work magick to bring change, shake up stagnant situations and energies, and promote action. If you’re looking for more freedom, now is the perfect time to cast spells in support of independence.

You may receive inspiration from higher realms, promoting creativity at this time. Pisces energy is gentle, compassionate, artistic, emotional, secretive, idealistic, and feminine. A mutable water sign, Pisces represents the urge to completely connect for a higher purpose.

“Pisces completes the cycle as it is Mutable Water, the Water of Water that dissolves separation to discover unity. Pisces changes shape as it flows through all of the forms of the world and what appears to be intuition is actually moments of oneness. As Pisces matures, it gains the capacity to distinguish illusion from vision and escapism from transcendence.” – From Ivo Dominguez, author of Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

Pisces Energy

This is the perfect time to analyze your dreams in search of guidance. You will benefit greatly from meditating and withdrawing from the outer world at this time, which will assist you in connection with yourself and Higher Self on a deeper level. Play or listen to music, paint, journal or write poetry. Now is the time to give your creative side freedom, suspend criticism and judgment, and enjoy your journey.

You are likely to find that your spiritual connection, especially with the angelic realm, is heightened at this time. Communicate frequently with angelic guides, ancestors, or other’s Higher Selves. Trust your intuition at this time because your psychic abilities are heightened now. You may also notice stronger healing powers now as well. Focus on dream work, scrying, and divination and brew magick potions now too.


As I said before, aligning yourself with the seasons of the Wheel of the Year and the astrological signs can provide you with a life of deep connection, abundance, and intuition. A lot of the information in this post can be found in the two books that I’ve quoted throughout and can be found below. I very highly recommend adding them to your personal library if you have any interest in astrology and living by the stars.
