A Different Kind of Treasure Map (Part II)

Tonight is the Full Moon in Libra. Two weeks ago, at our New Moon Circle, I began creating a treasure map for the coming lunar year. Today, I finished it, and now it is ready and waiting for all visual reminders of intentions to come.

After the New Moon, I began by layering my pieced top, correspondent to the colors of the bagua, with batting and cork. I chose ribbon in the same color as the center square, representing health, to interweave throughout all nine areas of my map. I placed my carefully chosen buttons from the Visionary in the center of each square, and sewed them on through all three layers. On this treasure map, there are many X's to mark the spot!After fruitless searching for the right frame, I decided today to mount the map on black foam core and bind it with ribbon that matches the criss crosses. I am happy with the finished product, and am completely open to whatever intentions find their way onto this special treasure map.
"A Full Moon in Libra asks each of us
to practice one particular relational skill:
listening attentively with an open heart, an open mind,
and without interruption or feedback."
--Lisa Dale Miller, astrologist
