Planning and journaling with planarchy and zenarchy. More bullet journal updates, art journaling and planner stickers. It’s all happening this week.
I seem to get a little distracted by Brian Cox and his lovely hair in the latest video. There’s still plenty of journal stuff though.
I read that the current full moon is a ‘wolf’ moon. All around the world, but particularly by Native Americans, names are given to the full moon. Each one signifies something special. The ‘wolf’ protects and gathers food for the pack. For me, this full moon signifies a pulling together of things. Of finally being ready.
The image above is of my planning and journaling stickers that are now for sale on Etsy. Click the image and you’ll find the shop. It has taken years of planning, but it was only the realisation that I could do them myself that finally got me to this point. pLAnarchy currently has stickers, digital downloads and handmade journals with more on the way.
The full moon and the new moon are both in the current sticker set available. I am finding it very helpful to use these cycles in my planning and productivity. The time frame seems to work for me; longer than a week but less than a month, with two focal points.
The naming of the ‘wolf’ full moon, adds a little gravitas to a regular celestial event. Naming has had implications throughout history. It has given power over things, it has raised the importance of things and it has given focus to events. I like the idea of naming my full moons as I go through the year planning and preparing. I’m not sure whether to use the names that have already been given, although there are many variations across the world, or create my own, with my own personal significance (I think I will give it a go).
You can still see the current full moon tonight. As I look up at it I will think about giving it a name.
Have you any ideas? What will you call this full moon?
I found out about the moon having a name here.

If the system isn’t working
find a new system
Years back I was an active member on DIY planner. Ever since I can remember I have used journals, tried to plan my time and doodled, written and drooled over notebooks and stationery. I have an indie, alternative and punk heart for anti-establishment and non-traditional stuff. I am generation X. Form follows function, but form can have attitude, style and use whatever elements are available.
I do what I love.
