The saying, ‘once in a blue moon’ is used to denote something that happens rarely. Around this time, around the globe, it is time for a Blue Moon. This is the second Full Moon of the month. It is also the second Full Moon ritual review for this month. And, for once in a Blue Moon, I am pretty much on track with meeting the goals and objectives for this lunar cycle planning ritual.
If you want to know what this ‘lunar cycle’ is all about then you can read more here and there are several other related posts on the site.
On my planning/vision board, just above my desk, I have a sticker with the current ritual’s goals. By the current Full Moon they should all be well on the way to bearing fruit and as the moon begins to wane I can tweak things to keep the fruit healthy. I’d best stop there, my metaphors are in danger of becoming mixed… and I’m not keen on mixed fruit.
pLAnarchy will soon have some new stickers and sticker sets available. I have finally completed this set and I am very pleased with how they have come out. I’ll have digital and actual stickers available. Hopefully, this will be in the next couple of weeks, but I will let you know.
This Temple Eden Patreon/blog
I have begun posting on the Patreon blog for my music. The aim is to post regularly there and then decide what to offer those who are interested. I’m still undecided as to whether to make it a monthly donation or a per item donation. Actually, I am still undecided about a lot of things. That’s partly why I have only just begun to post there. However, the posting was only due to begin by now, so I am on track, if not as far along as I would like to be. I have decided to attempt FAWM, the February Album Writing Month. I usually attempt it every year and manage about 10 of the 14 songs required. It’s a good enforced discipline and I often end up with at least one or two songs I really like. And I have made a special FAWM journal to keep all the songs
Better blog ritual
This is almost there. I have broken down the steps and areas that I need to concentrate on to get the blog on track. I have been better at posting this month, even if I have been a little unwell, very confused and confuddled about certain things and generally been focused on other stuff. The plan, or idea, is to now break these steps into rituals or habits that I can do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I am at the stage of searching for trigger points to kickstart the habits. I’m hoping that before the next New Moon ritual these will be in place.
The stickers mentioned above are just one aspect of pLAnarchy. I am taking things to the next level and moving things to a more serious footing. There is a lot happening behind the scenes at the moment and I’ll let you know more in the weeks and months ahead. However, just to keep myself accountable, I am currently up to my neck in business plans, financial forecasts, important meetings and other business type stuff – well, almost… I am using Pages, Numbers and my calendar more than I have recently. The relevant point here is that I have moved things to where I wanted them by this Full Moon.
I am very pleased with my progress in this ritual. The Blue Full Moon has arrived and with it a little lunar energy to keep me going on my goals. Do let me know in the comments of any rituals, habits or productivity hacks you use to keep your goals clear and focussed. I’m always on the lookout for effective ways of working (because I am quite bad normally, I lose interest far too quickly.)
Now, where was I with that spreadsheet?
