The Elfin Diary is more than just a diary – it is a mine of information.
The pocket-sized hardback and softback versions have a week to two pages spread and contain: a monthly astrological ephemeris; what to look for in the night sky each month; a glossary of astronomical terms; a planetary hours table; retrograde Mercury dates; the esoteric and astrological meanings of the planets; a void-of-course Moon table for the year; Moon phases, dates that the Sun enters each sign; the dates and times that the Moon enters each sign; mundane astrological aspects for each day; sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset times for each day; public holidays, holidays of all the major religions; special days; events in history and famous birthdays; quotations to make you think and smile; the Psychic Guide, an almanac of weird and wonderful things you probably never knew; an informative article.
The Elfin Desk Diary is A5-sized, 240 pages with two days to a page. It does not have the monthly ephemeris, the Psychic Guide, the article or the planetary hours table. However, it has everything else that the smaller diaries have, plus plenty of space to write your notes.
