I started testing out a bullet journal (bujo) system in November 2017, and switched to using it officially (aka formally replacing my planner and BOS) in January 2018. I knew that I wanted to start tracking my daily tarot card pulls in the bullet journal because I feel that practice is the only way to really learn the cards well. I searched a bit online, but couldn’t find a tarot tracking system that I liked. After some frustration (and a lot of erasing), I ended up making my own.
I use the Leuchtturm1917 dotted A5 notebook in gold from the metallic 100th anniversary edition of notebooks. I’m noting this because I’ve heard online that the grid in this edition is slightly different than their standard notebooks.
You can see the blank tarot tracker to the left; I’m quite proud of it. I used a very simple version for a few months, but wanted something a little more fun and graphic looking. I used this tracker throughout January and it worked very well.
Each card ‘box’ is three squares wide by four squares tall. There’s a two square space in between each row, and a one square space between each column. The key box is ten squares tall by seven squares wide. This layout has enough space for the key and 32 card boxes, more than enough for every month. The extra card box can be used as an ‘oops box’ if you mess a card up enough that you want to rewrite it. Alternatively, you could use it for a monthly card, or leave it off entirely.
