I was reminded of this blog this morning when I picked up my phone to determine whether or not a certain planet was above the horizon. So I decided that I would very briefly, in the same spirit of that blog I had read, write a quick post pointing out some apps I use as an aid for magick.
There are four apps that I use. I’m not gonna bother listing out their names, but only their function with which I am concerned. Be warned though, they are all concerned with the tracking of information.
Perhaps the app I use the most is a simple one that tells me moon phases as a percentage, and lists the new and full moon dates.
I also have an astrology app that displays the current skymap based on my GPS location; it also can pull up my natal chart and allow me to compare the two.
I have a simple planet tracking app which will tell me which planets are currently above the horizon, based on GPS location. It also lists rising and setting times. No more complicated equations to figure all this out for me.
The last app again uses the GPS, but it shows me the relative position of various constellations, stars, planets, and the directions from the viewpoint in which I happen to be using the phone.
So there you have it, everything the practicing Witch needs to track influences when preparing a working.
Do you use any apps towards magick?
