SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON RITUAL: Treasure Mapping
The upcoming Sagittarius New Moon (Nov. 22 at 4:32 a.m. PST) packs extra punch for visioning your goals, with its uplifting conjunction to lovely Venus. Even if you’re not sure what you want next in your life, working with images can reveal your subconscious desires.
You will need: magazines, a poster board of any size, glue stick, scissors, glitter glue (the ones for fabrics work best) or other decorations. If you’re going to frame your creation, choose the appropriate-sized frame and board.
Treasure-mapping is a perfect activity for a Sagittarius New Moon, which is about looking at the big picture of your life. Also called a vision board, a treasure map magnetizes new possibilities into being. You can make one for something specific—such as a new home, relationship or job—or simply for something you want more of, such as peace, love or health.
First, decide which goal to focus on. Then, peruse magazines for corresponding images and words. Rather than letting your logical mind prevail, allow the unconscious mind to participate. Breathe deep, let go and ask the Archer for guidance. Even if an image doesn’t seem to relate to the theme, yet it speaks to you strongly, tear it out. Choose more images than you will ultimately include. Once you have a pile of images and words, begin arranging them on the board in ways that feel right. Then, paste them down with glue stick. If desired, add affirmations with a felt-tipped pen.
When you’re complete, you can outline images with glitter glue or paste down other items. Then, post your creation someplace you’ll look at it daily, like the refrigerator or over your desk. Your subconscious mind will attract what you’ve pictured; be patient, though, as the process can take time.
