Hurray, Mercury is now direct (about 4 hours ago) and for anyone who has felt stuck on their map see if things flow more easier.  

For those who have not started your map, Start now!  Try to complete by April 6, Friday.

I'm putting the finishing touches on mine this evening. I ended up using some great origami papers to fill in with the appropriate colors... mostly in a cheerful paisley pattern. It looks great.

We were supposed to finish last night before the full moon. Maybe Tracy can answer you.

ooooh, i just barely made it in there then. i finished mine right before dinner last night. i wasnt happy with anything the way it was, i felt stuck. then i bought a tack board and thumbtacked everything up there in a pattern that was pleasing and made sense to me. i hung it up on the wall and then made dinner. i should take a picture of it. i really like how it turned out. i think that it should be fine. i mean. we are allowed to add things during the year. so i would assume that the last touches not being finished quite on time would still be okay. i know it needs to go with the flow of astrological energy but it also needs to go with your flow and if you didnt get it done till then maybe that is how it was supposed to be for you this year.

Cajunmomma, I am pretty sure I read where Tracy wrote once (last year, maybe) that if you don't finish by full moon, better than not doing it is to do it before the Aries cycle is over, which would be another couple weeks.  I hope this is true, because I did not get mine all finished by full moon!  I am nearly done and hope to complete mine tonight, and I am thinking it will still work for me!  Since mercury just turned this week and mars is station, mine feels like it's just now getting ready to be done, iykwim.  Plus, I think the Libra (full moon) is being helpful in making my map balance!

last year i put a lot of thought into exactly what to write (i wrote and drew pictures, instead of clipping words and photos from magazines). but this year i just sorta winged it. i bought two magazines that appealed to me, cut out the images and words that appealed, bought a poster board, and placed the images, pretty much blindly, without any real thought, just where it "seemed right." then i pasted them on with glue.

I finished the last touches of mine last night. I personally feel like the energy of the full moon was still present. These treasure maps are all about your intentions. Although the alignment of the planets/moons is key if doing it another day feels good then just put that good intention into it...I feel really good about my map and it looks beautiful up on my wall...

I originally made just one small map focused entirely on one thing that I've had in my map every year I've done it but which I hadn't gotten yet.

Then, around the third I started thinking of other things I'd like to happen and I finally did another small map on the 5th with a few other things I'd like to happen this year. Some of them are pretty dependent on the first map happening, but some are things like my kids getting along better. Although I'm wondering now if I should have been more specific since the main issue is the middle two hurting the eldest and each other.

I missed it... I'm not on here much and just started thinking about TM's today. 

Should I wait until next year or is there any earlier time to put something together?

Thanks!

My map this year despite my attempts to create a poster has ended up to be a list of handwritten intentions which I made when starting on my map.

 

Funny how maps turn out, this one is bare bones, but each time I've try to sit down and put together my cut out images, words and etc, it has not come together and has felt forced. 

 

2012 I believe will be one very interesting year!

I feel like my map is already starting to work in some ways, but in others the opposite is happeningdizzy.gif

 

Already I've felt really motivated to get my garden happening.I've done a whole lot of work and have put my vegetables in.That's something that has been waiting to happen for a long time. I've also felt quite motivated with eating right.

 

Can anyone tell me if they've had the thing they most want,on their map, kind of go in the opposite direction? I've really wanted a baby.I've had two miscarriages and I'm still hopeful.However,no matter what I say or do, my DH isn't wanting to. We've been talking about it and getting nowhere.I feel quite sad and it's hard to think in positive terms,as I should if I want to manifest it. I know it's early days with the map, but this is the most important thing to me.

 

Ay experience from previous year's maps?I could use some good news.smile.gif

For my map this time, I only focused on two things that I really want in my life.  It just didn't feel right to put anything else on there.  I needed my energy to be focused on these two areas, one of which has been causing me so much heartache the past few years.  I can feel things changing and it is so exciting :)

Well, you can always do a "vision board" and the best timing is always on a new moon. The Aries new moon is the absolute best time, but it isn't strictly the ONLY time to create a visual representation of your desires...

Sometimes things can take a little while to happen.  I heard that it's important to not think about the hows or whys of how it will happen, just that it happens.  It's hard to wait and be patient though.

I did get my board done in time this year, it is very simple.   I recall that there is a time to add to the map maybe cancer new moon?

Wow. Just wow. I put a picture of a car on the map and my hubby insisted we take the plunge to buy a new car last weekend. The car of the map looks very close to the car we bought together.

Fantastic philomum!
 

My map is very much about getting pregnant and birthing a healthy babe, and guess what - got a BFP yesterday. Amazing! Especially as I've been ttc for over two years and have had two losses.

 

I also had a lot on there about my garden,and that's been really going well for a while now.

 

I hope the next thing will be some money so that this baby won't be considered a burden by my husband. He stresses about money, but I don't worry too much.

Congrats on the car.

 

 

A good time to adjust the map is on the Cancer New Moon which will be in the later part of July.

Sadly the BFP didn't work out, but there's still plenty of time for my map to work.Perhaps I need more time for the money to manifest?

I'm sorry about the news, Gumblossom.  And yes, we are still early in our maps.  Lots of time for lots of things to manifest!

Although things didn't work out with the pregnancy, I'm amazed at how the map is still working. Just this week I was offered more work in a great position I had been hoping for, and my dh recently had a promotion at work, so I guess the money is manifesting.

I wish I knew how I could better assist my spirit baby to manifest and come earth side.

I'm open to suggestions. joy.gif

patience, i think?  I bet you will get your baby, mama! ;)

 

 

my map is weird.  on my first 2, i put my fondest dream, which was a homestead of our own.  i didn't see any possible way that it could manifest either of those 2 years, but put it there for the possibility.  The 1st year, it was represented twice by a smallish image of an old white (large and low) farmhouse with gardens extending from it, and then on my 2011 map I used an image of a castle, and then lots of gardens.  Anyway, before 2011 was over, we found out unexpectedly that it is totally possible for us to buy it now.  So, since it can be, I thought this new home would be the focus of this year's map.

 

I don't know yet what it looks like exactly though, of course, so I couldn't find an image to use that was right at all!  I left a space for it, but all that wound up on the map were lots of gardens (which we have now) and the phrase "LOVE YOUR HOME."  And we have realized how very much we do love our (rental) home now and keep rejecting possibilities for new places to buy.  We aren't even looking at all now and are thinking we really want to stay here for now and a while longer.  

 

That said, I do plan to try to add to this map when cancer new moon finally gets here this year.  The foam board I chose has a verdant green side, and I planned to use it for lots of images of our farm and it wound up still being completely blank at the end of Aries....like I said, my map is weird for me so far this year!
