Interesting. I would love to hear your thoughts on this Tracy.

hmmmm.  normally, i would say, wait a year until aries new moon 2012.  but I am feeling differently about this moon.  With Uranus in Aries and the Mercury retrograde..... go ahead and make a map.  let's see what it brings you.  keep me updated either on this thread or through a PM. I would like to follow the results.   good luck.

I can't believe I missed it ;-(

haven't been on MDC for a long while, but have been doing TMs for a few years now.  Started clearing things out in February and early March, then ended up with several fractures in my face at the end of March and had to have surgery.  Going to be fine, but the recovery has taken longer than I expected; completely forgot about TMapping and just realized last night that it was already end of April.  Looked up the dates and now I'm wondering if I can still do it?

 

Tracy or anyone else, any advice?  if I can still do it, any certain time in the near future that's better?

Well, he changed his tune and said he wants to do one. So I let him pick out a new magazine and he was all excited, and now that we're home he is playing DS again. I keep asking him from my room, where I'm cutting out things, "Do you want a picture of ____?" or "Do you want the phrase ______?" and he's saying yeah. I think he just is looking at the whole thing as work. He's VERY adhd and gets overwhelmed at The Whole Big Picture (of anything). I don't mind cutting things out that he might use, but I do want him to get in on doing the map itself. I keep reminding him how much he manifested from last year.
 


Where's the new thread? Is it up yet? ~Off to check right now~

 

My man is doing a map, too! I can't believe it! joy.gif Maybe it's because he knows he was manifested from my map two years ago. AND, while he didn't do a map last year, he did write a very important thing that is meaningful to him on a sticky note, and that manifested bigtime. So yay!!!

Last years map has been amazing.  The one area that had not been as fulfilled was house and kitchen remodel---out of the blue yesterday dh says it thing I am going to tear up the kitchen floor tormorrow!biggrinbounce.gif


 

I recycled mine. Whne I pulled out the old TMs (from previous years) one still held so much energy I didn't want to let it go. The other had none and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. DS ripped off the images he liked on the energy filled TM and then I was more than happy to put it in the recycle bin. It did take me three years to let go of that one TM though. :)

kivi Wonder if TM time has started now or if it' in 9 minutes. We just switched to summer time last week and normally we are 6 hours ahead of EST.. So right now it's 4.23 PM here. Doesn't really matter though. We're soon off to my parents in law for dinner... And then I guess it's bedtime for three children before I can start my TM'ing....

Have a great TM period everyone! orngbiggrin.gif I'm excited. This is my second time. smile.gif

I've found that TMing is kind of contagious.  Once I have everything out, I'm flipping through magazines, got my glue stick and poster board, etc. my kids just naturally get drawn to it as well.  No pressure, no forcing...it's just too much fun to pass up.

Ah, Lucimonster,

I miss you.  But pleased you do a drive by on MDC for Treasuremaps!

 

hugs to you!

Well, I take mine down. I want the energy of the new one. I don't burn them because I use foam board and I don't think that's environmentally sound, probably.

so excited about today!!!

 

just did some yoga to clear my mental space and I have an hour to clear our creative space.  My apt is not nearly as clean as I would wish, but I am being gentle on myself.

Good morning, ladies! YAY, it's TM day! Almost. It's 9am here. I've taken down my old map, smudged myself and my son and my house, and I'm about to take a shower. Having coffee right now. I hope the link to the new thread will be posted on here! Otherwise I won't get a notice!

 

Happy TM day, all!

Thanks ladies! (Regarding comments on my map...)

 

I cleared my day tomorrow and I asked my dad to watch DD for part of the day on Monday. Woo Hoo!!! Bring on treasure mapping!

 

I think an epsom salt bath would be perfect tonight for me... This has been an amazing year for me on a very personal level and letting go has been the theme nearly the entire time.

 

I still don't quite feel ready for this year to end and for a new one to begin............ I have faith, though, that it'll all work out for the best and that I will have a creative burst in the first 3 days of TM time. love.gif

I have two rooms left in my house to clean today. I don't think I 'm going to do it. I've spent most of the evening reflecting on family, in particular the family I don't really know. And now I feel a cleansing cry coming on, not one because of any emotion but just to release the emotion. I'm a bottler so it is required from time to time. And take a little more me time to just meditate and just be.

 

I hope you all get that time to do a little something for yourselves before you get to sleep tonight. Many blessings to you all as we close this year and greet the next.

I don't know if all of Colorado is on the same time zone, but I looked it up for Denver:  10:32 EST = 8:32 a.m. Mountain Time.

 

 

Thank you, lucimomster!

 

~*~

 

I work tomorrow afternoon and all day Monday and Tuesday, so I'm wondering when I'll have some good solid time to work on this. I think, to save myself some time, I'll head out tonight to get supplies and not touch them until tomorrow morning... that'll give me at least a few hours of TM time... My last 5 TMs, I've had all the time in the world to work on them... I guess my TM creative spurt will have to be intense and condensed this year. wink1.gif

And *waves hello at Tracy* ... Yep, it's Aries New Moon Time, time for my annual, brief return to MDC to visit Tracy and the rest of the TreasureMappers, bringing a few new friends with me again, here and to your astroblog.  Thank you, as always, my dear, for sharing your wisdom on these matters with us. Can't wait to read how everyone's visions manifest this year! Whoo-hoo!

Tracy, I can't make it to the sauna, but I did sunbathe for a few hours today... a definite cleansing and energizing yet super sedating (strange, huh?) experience after de-cluttering like a crazy woman all morning. DD is going down for a nap now and I'm planning to finish cleaning and organizing- maybe take a shower with some essential oils or something. DP asked to TTC in May... a big move ahead of us again thumbsup.gif and so many positive things are happening for us just these past few weeks. I'm VERY ready for a new map. I'm so awake and energetic, yet meditative and inwardly focused- if that makes any sense.

 

I requested tomorrow morning off work tomato.gif just for TM time...bring it on!

 

 

This may be a silly question, but if it begins tomorrow at 10:32 EST - being in Colorado, would I start a few hours earlier? Too lazy to look it up redface.gif

 

And DD and I made some yummy solar infusions today... they're out in the sun as she naps... Red Clover Blossoms- here I come!

We are down the final 24 hours.  

I am in the middle of a HUGE project, accent on Huge, big, enormous..did I say large?

 

By the time I wake up and have my morning tea 6:30 I am already 2 hours behind schedule.  Sigh.

Anyway, in that enviroment I have to cut a large swath of time to work on my map.  Frankly, I welcome it.

It will feel good to just be focused on ME.   This project is a volunteer project (how perfectly Pisces) and will wrap up on the Full Moon.

I can only imagine what this means for my year....note to self..put a lot of ME on my map.

 

Anyway, I will come in tomorrow and I will post The Official Treasure Map Thread for 2011.  

 

I wish I could go to the spa today and release all of the last 12 months, 365 days in a hot sauna.   Maybe I can squeeze it in. Or maybe I'll take a long bath.

 

I encourage everyone else to release last year similiarly.

 

And tomorrow will be the beginning of a huge year.   And just in case you are confused... I KNOW huge.

 

hugs

Tracy

Sunday? Make sure! Ours runs from Sunday to Saturday. You may have to print off a new one for tomorrow.

it's my birthday weekend, so... new year, new YEAR ahead for me!!

 

i'm also looking forward to starting my garden seeds with the new moon on sunday. did i pick up that idea on this thread? i think so. i'm reading my daughter the Little House on the Prairie books, and getting some great gardening advice in the process. the third book, "Farmer Boy," is filled with details on exactly how they did farming, and they planted pumpkin seeds *on the new moon* in May. i will be doing that too this year. soooo interesting to see that the new moon/new seeds idea is not a new fangled idea, but rather REAL, practical and proven technique.

 

WOW!!


Happy Birthday!  How wonderful!

Busy day planned!  Seeing a friend for coffee this morning.  I think she's in love again after a nasty divorce and I look forward to hearing the happy details and seeing that glow in her face! Also doing some last-minute tidying this afternoon.  Also stopping at the greenhouse for a couple more packs of herb and flower seeds to plant tomorrow - thanks for the reminder, Elliesmom - and Happy Birthday!  My garden is still snowed under, but I have pots of earth and grow lights and I'm trying to get a head start that way. Won't be planting warm-weather veg seeds or seedlings outdoors till the New Moon in May, as it happens!

 

I have my my 40 percent off Michaels coupon in my wallet all ready to go out for supplies on Sunday.  I am going to try browsing mags at the library, and borrowing and photocopying pages from the ones I want (we own a decent color copier for our business  so this won't be too inconvenient or expensive, I'm hoping.)  Have to get dh to help me replace the toner.

 

Speedmum, when I did the baguas for my maps, I put family and close friends in the Health/Family bagua, middle left in the grid of 9 squares.  

 

 

sunnysandiegan - I remember that flower TM of yours.  It was beautiful!

I would put them aside and see if they still ring true for you on Sunday. That's what I would do. I've gotten magazines in the past and without meaning to, looked through them, and saw things that might be relevant for TM...then on TM day, I either couldn't find the things I thought I wanted, or they didn't ring true. Or some of them did. Things change, energy changes, on new moon.

hi mamas, so great to see what everyone is doing to prepare. i'm awfully pleased that the weeks matched up with having my first houseguests in this place, a couple of artists/designers, so i felt extra strongly that i wanted to finally put the place in order. i've been cleaning & organising & decluttering like mad and i'm so happy with it. i had a moment today to just sit and enjoy it. we've had a hard few months in some ways, and in many others, tremendous excitement for the future. i'm happy to begin anew at the end of this weekend. i'm looking forward to it. i make my maps digitally, pulling pictures from picture-heavy websites, i shall have some good fun doing this collage. i might use text this year if i can find a poetic way to integrate it. we'll see, last year image was enough for me. 

 

i also wanted to say, here i am, living in the countryside, like i was dreaming about a year ago, and looking out over the hills i pictured, and i have a sewing studio just like the one i pictured…even an antique sofa, my partner fell in love with one and we bought it, and later found it was on my map. amazing. some things aren't quite there, but then i think they are a longer movement. or maybe i'll take action on them right now! i can feel some things are being decided now which have been up in the air for months. i'm so pleased, so pleased.

A friend also suggested I hug a tree. She added to ask it for help. I haven't run across a tree I want to hug yet...the day is young here, though... winky.gif

 

I did, however, go out in the garden (at my kitty's insistence, LOL) and tend to the plants for a little while this morning. I was so distracted, though. Nothing obvious, just not able to focus or stay put. It was not relaxing, which is usually is.

 

I keep envisioning myself walking barefoot on the beach. Maybe that is where I need to be right now.

 

DD just got out of school at noon (she's on Spring Break for a month now! love.gif ) and we are headed to lunch and shopping for the afternoon. We'll see what else comes about....
