September carries with it themes of reorientation, transition, forgiveness, and the descent into ourselves for reflection and deep Shadow Work in our journals. 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.
September always reminds me of my Dad, farming, football games, and the second harvest. This month is also when the night finally starts to get cool and bonfires light our nights. Which means that in our house we are trying to get in those last moments of camping before the rainy portion of the Autumn & Fall begin.
Now is a time of transition and descent further into the dark half of the year as the summer ends and the Autumn & Fall officially begin on the Fall Equinox & Mabon on the 21st & 22nd. September is also a time of the year that is full of bounty from nature and the good will of men with the holidays right around the corner.
This is a time of year when we focus on forgiving ourselves and readjust our paths, dreams, intention and goals. September is when we transition into a new way of thinking about our progress on the goals that we set back in January.
Have we made progress on our goals? Or do we need to let our expectations fall away and view the road to our goals through a different lens?
Remember to transition your way of thinking about the progress you have or haven’t made on your goals as we head into the best time of the year, Fall.
