AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.

well, you can find spells on here, just use your common sense to pick and choose.
my first BoS had candle colours and associations as it's first spell. i wrote out how to do a candle spell, then made a 2 page list of candle colours, the spell it's best used in, day of the week, and deity. after that it was old spells i read in Buckland books [like knot spells, abracadabra healing, energy work, red ball spell] finally spells i got from other Pagans.
what exactly do you want? is this your first Book of Shadows, or just spells? are you wanting to organize it by type [healing, curse, love] or just put in spells?
You're the only one who decided what to put in the personal Book Of Shadows that you know, since spiritual document specifically belongs to you.
There are many guides online telling what you can possibly add in your Book Of Shadows.
I'd say that you can put this anything associated with your spiritual path including experiences and dream journals. Anything that seems appropriate to you.
Basically a Witch's Book of Shadows is a place where they keep Prayers, Spells, Devotion, Altar Diagrams, Information on the Sabbats, Important dates (Birthdays, Handfastings, Deaths), Information on thier God & Goddess, Herbs, and their craft. A book of shadows is a very personal thing,and should contain the information you find most important.
Remember to have a look at the site's spell book and see if you like any spells, or even better - make your own creations.
Do whatever you want... It's all yours.
Drink some mugwort tea (small doses), and clear your mind to allow inspirational. What are your needs? Your Book of Shadows should be only spells that worked for you, and that you would want your descendants to use with the same result. Collect spells in a file and try them, then the ones that were the most successful put in your book of Shadows. There are spells for inspiration. meditate.
Blessed be all who use the magick of the gods.
