Astronomicon Fonts

Reading Time : 5 minutes

Hello everyone, I’m proud to announce the release of the Astronomicon Fonts!

I’ve been working on this side project for a while, and now they are ready and free to download. The spirit of this project is to contribute to the spiritual community out there, providing a set of astrological glyphs as complete as possible. As you can see below, the style is minimal allowing the fonts to adapt and blend nicely regardless of the context.

The Project

I had designed my version of the basic astrological symbols for quite some time now. And I’ve been using my planets and zodiac signs glyphs in this website since. But for more than a year now I have also been making extensive use of Astrolog, a fantastic free and open source astrology software created by Walter Pullen.

Since I wanted to use my glyphs in Astrolog, I reached out to him offering them as a possible design for the program. An interesting exchange of ideas and requests began, and starting from the planets and signs I ended up adding more and more glyphs.

This way all the objects supported by Astrolog where slowly added, and now they are all present in the Astronomicon Fonts. This makes them one of the most complete astrology font set around!

I would like to thank Walter Pullen for his support and contribution to the project, especially for his patience in spotting little details and errors to correct.

Featured Glyphs

So, here they are. I’ve divided them in the categories below. In order to use them, of course first install the fonts on your system. Then, you can copy and paste the characters in the black boxes below the images. They correspond to the glyphs shown in the pictures, so you can reference them quickly and start using them in any text editor.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi again! I’m using this font and realizing that it would be really nice to have arrows for things like ‘Sun enters Taurus’ and moon phases (new, quarters, full). I’d be happy to contribute these as SVG. I’m going to try to match the font with glyphs …but as you know it’s much easier to keep things consistent if everything is coming from the same font.

    • Hey Arena, the unicode arrows are pretty standard I guess. I agree, it would be nice having the arrows as well :)
      I don’t plan to edit the fonts anytime soon though, but thanks for the suggestion!
      When I’m going to release a new version I’m going to add this improvement, as well as a bold version and a fix to the Anthroposophical Vulcan character :)

  2. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    I was desparate for these symbols and didn’t want to spend hours figuring out which fonts would work for Unicode or ASCII.

    Many blessings your way!

  3. I love this font, very useful, it’s just that your symbols for Semi-Sextile and Quincunx (Inconjunct) are round the wrong way.

  4. HI! Is there a possibility that you will expand Astronomicon with glyphs of other celestial bodies and mathematical points, such as Eros, Amor, Psyche, Hecate, Priapus, some fixed stars and so on? The work you’ve done is truly splendid, and it would be nice if it expanded little by little. Thank you.

    • Hi there, thanks!
      I am very busy lately, but it would be an interesting side project.
      I don’t know if at this point it would be better to create a whole new set instead of expanding the one existing!

  5. Hi, I am trying to install and use this font on an Apple Mac computer. Message says no readable font. Can you help with how to install and use with Mac? Thanks

  6. Thank you so much for this beautiful font! The only one I’m having trouble with is the opposition. It comes up as the double quotations. Anyone else having issues with it?

  7. Thank you for your excellent fonts. You have done a great service to the community. I made a little donation and I wish it could be more. I have a special needs sanctuary for birds and eats up most of my funds. If my new podcast takes off their will be more donations!
