8th Moon Monthly Goals Plan With Me | Lunar Goal Setting Journal With Me

Goal Setting

Today I’m sharing my 8th New Moon Goals. So lets go ahead and start with our new moon beginnings. I really enjoyed creating the my August Plan With Me. So grab a cup of tea and your favorite pen, and set your monthly goals with me!

This month I wanted to set the mood so I’m using my little mini sage bundles. I have a blast from the past blog post over here if you’re curious, you can see the very first Owls&Indigo logo!

I’m also using some oil to make this feel special. This is actually a custom oil, it’s got a bunch of different herbs in it, that I’ve been using for years. Shout out to Sarah K. the beautiful soul that I made this very bottle with all those years ago. I use this oil on special occasions or for goal-setting practices like today.

This month I’m using Illuminated Tarot Guidebook and Deck, you can actually use this deck as playing cards as well. This layout is from my August Monthly Plan With Me. I like to start by shuffling the deck 3 times, or whatever feels good, and then I cut the deck. This month for my journaling prompts I’ll be focusing on:

to have
to do
to be

I like to write down any notes that jump out at me from the guidebooks as I journal. This month I pulled all Spades from the Illuminated Tarot Deck. I drew the King of Spades, the Eight of Spades, and the Jack of Spades. The King of Spades is the Emperor and he stands for wisdom experience and Authority. The Jack of Spades stands for caution and potential. The Eight of Spades is Justice, standing for reason and fairness.Out of these themes, I create my mantras for this month with my Mantra Maker on the opposite side of this spread. My mantras for this 8th New Moon are:

“I am full of wisdom experience and Authority in my knowledge.” 

“I can live my dreams goals and potential.” 

“I will be cautious, just, and fair to myself.” 

“I set these goals to gain wisdom for myself and to live up to and beyond my potential.” 

This month’s lunar theme is:

My mantra for this cycle is:

“The tools to achieve my goals are already inside me. I’ve set these goals to gain wisdom and to be the best version of myself.”

Then I write the eight steps that I’m going to be taking this month to help me achieve these goals for this lunar month. I always make sure that these steps actually relate back to my yearly spiritual goals.

You might recognize this bullet journal spread, it’s from my August Plan With Me. Make sure you check it out to see the rest of my journal for this month and my weekly spreads! I use this journal as my daily planner now and as my lunar goal setting journal. 

Either by the moon or in the morning of each new lunar phase, I set a positive feeling based intention for each of the eight lunar phases. For this new moon I wrote:

“I set this intention to be the best version of myself. I feel it in my body.”


Then at the beginning of each moon phase for this cycle I will come back to this spread and write a new positive feeling based intention. I’ll be posting these little mini moon updates over on Instagram, so be sure to follow me there so you don’t miss them!

On the final Crescent Moon of the lunar cycle I do a Lunar Review of the entire month tracking my journey back to the new moon. First I think about what worked, what didn’t, and what I can improve. Then I reflect on the biggest wins of the lunar month.

This journaling and goal setting practice is something that I do the night before every new moon or the morning of every new moon. This practice of short term, achievable goal setting via the lunar cycle, has grown really dear to my heart. It’s something that I can’t imagine not doing.

Using tarot cards in this way gives me a new lens in which to look at my life. It’s also given me a lot of inspiration and closure by looking at my life through a different perspective. This practice has also helped me hone my focusing skills and has enabled me to quit second guessing myself. With this practical tarot new moon journaling prompt, I look forward to each lunar cycle and the start of a new chance to achieve my goals.

Now that we have completed this Monthly Lunar Goal Setting session, we can go ahead and bring our 8th Moon Practice to a close. Subscribe so you don’t miss anything. To see how I make sure I’m on track with my goals for each Lunar Month check out the my Full Moon Check In.
