It’s time for my January Plan With Me for my Lunar Bullet Journal & Spiritual BUJO.
For January I wanted to continue the treeline theme for my monthly overview like I did in December. I like the horizontal month layout. In the upper left hand corner I have a section for my monthly goals, and in the lower left a section for my future plans. My Monthly mantra for January is:
“the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Then I add in the lunar phases to my calendar. I’m using silver and blue metallic markers this month along with the black supertips marker from crayola. And at the very end of the month I have one lone tree, which is my mother’s birthday. I’ll be filling in the rest of my tree line calendar as more dates and appointments come.
On the next two pages I have my letters to the universe spread. This can be a daily gratitude log, but what I like to do is just use it as a place to open a dialog with the universe and with my inner self to say thank you for various things or just to write out my feelings. This can be a daily practice that uses one line, or it can be an as needed practice that is less frequent but take up more lines in your journal.
Now for the Lunar part of this spiritual bullet journal. I begin with my practical tarot new moon journaling prompt spread. If you’d like to see how I use this spread click here.
On the opposite page I am writing out the theme of the first lunar month of 2019 which is “purify your spirit.” Below that is a section for Challenges I will face in this first moon of the year and next to that my Goals for the first moon.
Directly below I have a section called How I’m Going To Do It. And ad the very bottom of the page I have a range of dates that span the lunar month. This is my tracker for the mantras that I will come up with after filling out the Practical Tarot New Moon Journaling Prompt. My tracker is a sprout of leaves that come up every day I say my mantras and roots that grow as my practice goes on for the lunar month. Be sure to check out how I use this spread here.
For this first new moon of the year I wanted the feel of the darkness of space and the darkness of the new moon itself. I start off with a section for my intention for the lunar month, which I will determine in my 1st Moon Practical Tarot Plan With Me video. I’ve left eight spaces for each of the moon phases to write the mantras that correspond with each phase and how they relate to my intention. The inner ring is left for more tracking throughout the lunar month and the outer ring will be decorated with metallic and white during each lunar phase as part of my journaling practice.
Let me know down below if you’d like to see a video on how I use this spread to journal with the moon phases and how I use the mantra’s in tandem with my intention.
And now I’m going to wrap up this lunar journaling section with two very simple pages, my monthly action steps to achieve my goals and my mid month check in.
Next is my January Hygge Challenge. Each time I complete one of the items off the list I’ll use a stamp marker to tick is off and also draw it on the day it was completed.
The next two pages are my end of the month pages. First I have the Unravel Your Month check in and my Lunar review to look back at what worked, what didn’t, what to improve, and what my biggest wins were. And a little reminder at the bottom of the page to review my spiritual goals so they are top of mind.
