Wow...Tracy, your reply to Erika really struck a chord with me....I also have deserving issues and didn't quite realize what was underneath some of it...the word forgiveness is very powerful. Thank you, Tracy.

I think many of us have deserving issues. Even those who look on the outside that they all have it together.
You could not pay me a million dollars to be Jennifer Aniston right now..kwim? And yes, I do think forgiveness primarily to self is so critically important.

I like to do this. It sounds like such a duh (why didn't I ever think of this before) idea to have a "map" of where you want to be in the coming year. I can't wait to do this.

I'm in, too. This will be the third year for me.

FWIW, last year I did more of a booklet with drawings. I was very strongly pulled to doing it this way, all my own drawings done in Stockmar crayons (which I love using) and just a few phrases. It was extremely powerful. So, I'd say not to feel constrained to the posterboard/magazine idea.

This year I don't feel the need to do it that way again. I'm not sure what form it will take.

If you can wait to buy the magazines until the new moon starts that would be better.

I am going to use old magazines I have around the house, is that ok? I think I read that it's ok...

And I'm also going to use some pictures of my "old" self (in better physical and emotional shape). I think that will really help me. And I think I will hang it in my bedroom so that I will see it often. I'm very excited and eager to do this project...

I noticed it was a full moon last night. It was DD's birthday and I remember it being a full moon the day she was born The *new* moon is when we don't "see" the moon, yes?

I'm just learning this stuff. I'm also excited about my treasure map, but I'm still not sure what I'm going to put on it, although I'm starting to move out of my funk. Perhaps by the time I actually *make* the treasure map, I'll be in a good place.

Again, thank you, Tracy.

This is my second year.

I did this last year and I found it very helpful to me personally, but I can't say that a lot of the stuff happened. A lot of it is still stalled and frustrating. A lot of it did not happen at all. I don't know.

But I find it useful as a guide to get me back on track and remind me of what is important to me.

So in conclusion, I'm in!!!

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

Momtwice,
So glad you are in again. Sometimes it takes a couple tries. Go back and re-read AdinaL's post...she was in a similiar spot as you.

yes, debrabaker, the new moon is when it is the darkest in the sky. it is the really, really skinny moon.

and i think by the time new moon happens you will be ready for your map. remember between now and then mercury will go direct which I think will help everyone!

Tracy, your insights are always so helpful. Thanks a lot for sharing your story about the past life fears and deserving issues. It struck a chord here as well. This mercury retrograde is working wonders inside us all, right? nice preparation for the april new moon.

May I tell a Mecury Retrograde story?

If not, dispose of this post as you see fit.

We just got a $1,500 van repair bill (it's being repaired as we speak.)

Of course, I think this is wretched, but it needed to be inspected and, among other things, there was hoses and bolts underneath that takes the fluids to the engine and transmission.

That element of the bill is the big ticket item ($7C) and, here's the retrogradey thing, if it was left go and the hoses and bolt thing blew, all the fluids would drain out and it would ruin both the engine and transmission.

The $1,500 bill is setting things right so we didn't have a $4-5K bill and the van out of commission for awhile.

Isn't that cool?

Just found this thread, and I am very excited about doing this for this year. I feel ready, and had just been thinking about this very kind of thing for the Spring.

Kind of meeting the change instead of fencing it in, you know?

Debrabaker...

a very good insight on mercury retrograde.


I would also say that your dh may have been worried about the hoses before the retrograde even started but it took the retro to get the work done. Seen it many a time with a merc retro.....

Mercury going direct would be nice... This virgo doesn't do so hot with the retrograde....

And what with the moving and the hemorrhaging money currently, I am about ready for that to stop...
