Re-Aligning Goals

Re-Aligning Goals

Previously, two examples, about goals and “bullet” journals

Re-Aligning Goals

A fork in the roadBeen at the small, goal-oriented journal thing for a while now, a couple of years, maybe? What I’ve learned? It’s useful. A simple set of targets, non-negotiable, but not etched in stone, either. However, as an adjunct, there’s another kind of goal-setting, wherein I time with the Moon, the phase of the Moon. Originally, that was called a “burning bowl” ritual.

I was thinking about a way to re-align goals so that the timeline fits with a lunar cycle, perhaps a little more evenly.

Re-Aligning Goals

As far as I got, tricky trying to do much past about a year or two. While I’ve been at this for a while, I’ve seen a full range of Saturn through the signs? I tend to favor a cycle of 7 years for Saturn. For Jupiter, roughly a 12-year cycle, so it would be a yearly cycle.

Works in progress. I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.

I’m writing my way through this. As always, this is experiential and experimental.

I set this aside then circled back around. November can be — Sun Sign Scorpio? November is a good time for Sagittarius introspection, a time to pause and assess those goals. Maybe re-align them.

  2. Days

  4. Years

The ‘4 Years’ is the tricky part so far. Thinking through, though, that helps, and looking at it on paper, well, on a page?

Since pre-pandemic, I’ve been wrestle in with the five-year ideal, the idea of what all my work looks like, in 5 years. Or longer?

Re-Aligning Goals

When I started the January 2023 notebook, I looked, and the fly leaf has the bullet breakdown, 1-5, but after percolating on this idea for a spell?

  1. Day
  2. Weeks
  3. Months
  4. Years

• One: a simple, single daily goal.
• Two: Next two weeks, where I am on the Lunar Goals
• Three: next few months, possibly touching 4 signs, but all the way through a season.
• Four: Four years is slightly more than an approximate turn of Saturn on his course. Perfect reminder.

Works in progress — stay tuned.
