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.

depending on what you need you can do a few things. a book of shadows is just a notebook. when i started, i used an old hard cover sketchbook i never used and was collecting dust. now i've got a few others, and use fancier books for certain ones. [my book of rituals has gold edged pages for example] find one you feel works best for you and use it.
herbs, flowers, plants, wands, and other similar items can be found/made from what lives in your area. my first wand was made from a branch i took off my favourite lilac in my back yard. there's a process many wiccan's go through by befriending the plant, asking for permission and leaving an offering. i'm not sure though if other pagan paths do this, so research the process of your path before yanking leaves off a bush for a spell.
crystals, cauldrons, and other hard to find object that can't be made by most people can be bought at occult shops, and/or certain stores. a mortar and pestol can be found at a cooking store for example. your athame can be any dark handled two sided blade [could be a letter open for instance]
or, if you just want to get started and buy all these items [i do suggest taking your time and slowly building your magickal collection] there is an online store on SoM:
i've never bought from it, but i do occasionally window shop, they've got a lot of nice items, just watch your price and don't go crazy. [that goes for offline occult shops as well]
