105 October Bullet Journal Ideas Themes Trackers & Designs for Fall, Autumn, & Halloween!


October carries with it a lot of themes: transformation, surrender, reflecting, learning, changing, remembrance, intuition, composting, resting & restoring, regeneration, honoring the dead, preparing for winter, and honoring the third and Final Harvest. Keep these ideas and concepts in your mind when you create your monthly bullet journal themes, habit trackers, designs, and track your yearly and monthly goals in your Bullet Journal this month.

October always makes my dark, brooding, moody heart soar. I feel like I come alive in the fall and autumn months, especially October. The cold mornings that stay cold all through the day and into the night are my favorite. Our windows and doors are always open to welcome in the winds of transformation and change in October. I even love the cold rainy days of October too. On these days you can find me curled up under a blanket, in my favorite retro mid century modern arm chair with a book and coffee or hot tea, usually with a black cat near by waiting to jump up with me. In our house we’ve even been known to walk out onto a briskly cold and raining morning and tout, “Oh what a beautiful day!” (neither of us like the Summer heat and prefer the cold). God I love October.

Now is a time of transition and descent further into the dark half of the year as we approach Halloween, Samhain, All Souls Day, and Day of the Dead, on October 31 and November 1st. October is also a time of year when we remember those who have gone before us and how we spend our time here on Earth as the living. We also continue the descent further into ourselves for reflection and deep Shadow Work in our journals.

This is a time of year when we focus on changing the way we think about the progress we have or haven’t made on our dreams goals and intentions that we set back in January. October is also time to learn and reflect on what we could have done better.

Transform the way you think about your goals. Surrender & Reflect on the road to your goals so far this year. Write down what you could have done better.

Remember to transform your way of thinking about the progress you have or haven’t made on your goals as we head into the best month of the year, October.
