[00:00:00] Tracy Cook: Aries is about number one, and you really, you have to take a moment and be about. And the beauty about it working on your treasure map is that might be the only three hours in the entire year that is only going to be about you.

[00:01:06] All right. Right now we are talking to astrologer Tracy Cook, about building a treasure map for 2023. We’re gonna be diving into what is a treasure map and why would you want to align? Your treasure map activities. The astrological energies. Tracy has been helping groups of people for over 20 years create these treasure maps, and she brought this idea to our community here last year for the Aries New Moon.
[00:01:38] And so many of us made the treasure maps and we’ve had astounding results. We’re gonna tell some of those stories later. She is here now to talk about our treasure. For next year, so the 2023 treasure maps and what we’re gonna be talking about, what we can be doing between now and March to really set ourselves up for success and how to proceed with making maps this spring, since we’re having two areas, new moons, which is sort of unique and it’s definitely something that we’re gonna need to consider as we’re picking the perfect time.
[00:02:13] To make our maps. We’re also gonna be announcing a special opportunity to make maps in community with us through a workshop, so stay tuned for that. All right, so Tracy, welcome back to the show. It’s so great to have you here. Great to
[00:02:29] Tracy Cook: be here, Amanda. It’s alright. I’m really excited. Same.
[00:02:34] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Same.
What is a Treasure Map?
[00:02:34] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: All right, so for those who missed our discussion about treasure maps last year, can you just quickly bring us up to speed?
[00:02:42] What is a treasure map and why would we wanna
[00:02:46] Tracy Cook: do them? Yes, I can do that . So, first things first is I always give credit to, astrologer buzz, my. Who was a very gifted astrologer and he was somebody that I would take classes from. And I learned so much from him. And even though I had a pretty substantial understanding of astrology, by the time I got the buzz, he deepened it and brought in new, nuances that I had missed and didn’t really think about, and I just always feel , so grateful that Buzz was in my life for the period of time that he was. You know, I think we all missed him in the astrology community. So in 1996 I was doing New Moon workshops with Buzz Myers and the way that worked is you get a little audio cassette. He was, uh, he was in Euclid, Ohio, and we’d all write to, we’d send a little check and we’d get our audio cassettes.
[00:03:37] And by that time, I think I’d been with him maybe six years. And I grew up with astrology my whole life. So I was, you know, I knew a lot, but. His knowledge of new moons was so powerful. And in 96 he, told everybody we’re gonna make treasure maps this year. And I thought, wow, this is interesting. And so I listened to the tape and then I, and I knew as soon as he said it, it was like all my chakras, all, all the, they all lit up.
[00:04:06] And I said, this is great. And I called up my friend Margaret, who was the person who introduced me to Buzz and my other friend. And I said, meet me at Margaret’s house. I’ll explain why. And then I brought all these supplies, which we’ll talk about, and I showed up and we listened to the cassette and I said, we’re all doing this.
[00:04:25] And we walked up the street to where all the magazine stands were, and we just pulled all these magazines down. And then we went back to Margaret’s house and then we just cut and glued and did, and we made these maps. And in my. A map is, I’ll cut to this chase. It’s a vision board. However, it’s not just a vision board that’s done randomly at some time of the year.
[00:04:48] And I know a lot of people make vision boards around January 1st, but this is, it’s what makes this special is that it is aligned with the astrology. It is aligned with Aries, and it’s aligned with the Aries New Moon. And that is to, um, the lu that launches the lunar. Zodiac Lu year and cuz Aries is the first sign and Aries sees something and wants it and goes out and, it’s a very independent spirit.
[00:05:17] It just knows, and it’s, if you’ve ever known Aries, we all know when, when they want something, they want something just to get out of the way. And that is why we do our map stem. And Buzz said, once you do your map, you’ll start seeing results by Cancer New Moon, which will be three months later.
[00:05:35] And I, on my map, I was very busy working in, in the entertainment business and I, you know, I didn’t have a significant other and didn’t have a guy in the scene and I was just like, you know, I was doing my map and I go, what kinda guy would I like? And I pulled, Picture of this guy from an ad and it was a Ralph Lauren ad, and I know I said this last time, but I’ll say it again.
[00:05:59] I go, oh yeah, I like his energy. And he and Ralph Lauren, who was always on brand, it had, the guy was a model, was a sailor on a boat, he was his, you know, the Lauren brand. And I put it there and the next month I met through my work, I met this guy and he’s now my husband. And the irony is he was very plugged into, he grew up with sailing and yacht clubs and I’m like, wow, okay.
[00:06:32] Talk about on point. I mean, the map was that on point and, and we’re still together and we’re very happy. And, but that’s how the maps, the, it’s like you get something and you put it down or you. You. You want something, but maybe you don’t know why you want it. And I don’t know why of, you know, when you’re looking at magazines, there’s ads everywhere.
[00:06:54] Why did that dude de call to me ? And then I met him a month later. So it’s, the maps are funny. But anyway, my other friends who did them, they had results. Especially my friend Margaret. She had results right away. I mean, she met a guy. I know it sounds so, I mean, we’re sounding like a romcom movie where we’re making maps and we meet our.
[00:07:16] But she met a, she met her guy too, and then she had a very specific car, and darn if she didn’t get that car, I think by July, I mean, there it was. And it, it was so weird how it all happened. But anyway, after that I continued to do maps with people and I, created a little cyber community. Well, I was working, I was doing, I was a new mom, so I was involved in cyber mom stuff.
[00:07:44] And then from there that I, my little community grew and then I, it keeps growing and growing and growing, and now we got astrology hub, pees doing them, and they’re j It’s a fabulous process, but again, it’s a, it’s a juiced up vision board based on the astrology. I
How a Treasure Map is Organized
[00:08:06] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: also love how we bring in the, it’s bagua.
[00:08:12] Mm-hmm. , but it’s, it is this way that we can make sure that we’re covering all the different areas of life. And you very specifically pointed out to us, you know, on your. Whiteboard or whatever you’re using. Yeah. On your, your poster board,
[00:08:27] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: you are, you’re putting the different categories of life on there so that you don’t only emphasize one thing.
[00:08:34] Tracy Cook: So, you know, it’s the seven, the the, the seven or the nine uas, which are career and life knowledge, self cultivation, health and ancestors, wealth and prosper. Health and health and center fame and reputation, love, marriage, children, creativity, helpful people, and travels well.
[00:08:53] That’s life. Exactly,
[00:08:55] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: and Tracy, we, we were talking before we went live, I’ve been feeling called to actually use the 12 houses as my organization system this year because we’ve been doing a house series here on
[00:09:08] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: the podcast where we’ve gone in detail and in depth into every single house. And I looked at that and went, well, geez, if, if I use the houses, I would definitely be covering all the areas of life.
[00:09:20] Mm-hmm. . So I’m gonna, I’m gonna experiment with that this year. I invite any of you who are called to do that, to also experiment with that. But, but the, the great thing is that there’s, there’s a system around this. We’re timing it with the astrology. We’re timing it with the energy of, of new beginnings, of initiating things, of planting new seeds in the ground and watching them blossom.
[00:09:43] Tracy Cook: We’re, we’re,
[00:09:43] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: we’re timing our. With the astrological currents, which we talk about a lot here at Astrology Hub. It’s like, why? Why swim upstream against the energies when you can actually catch the wind in your sail and allow it? It’s more of a co-creative experience. Yes. Where it’s like, okay, the timing is ripe and I’m ready.
[00:10:08] So I’m gonna put these things together and then allow them to unfold. And the reason why you’re back, Tracy, is because first of all, you’re awesome . Um, second of all, I personally had such astounding results from the treasure maps that we did last year, and I got to receive so many stories from our community of people who also did the maps in March of last year.
[00:10:36] So I know that there, there’s something to this. It’s not just like, oh, you know, some new age idea of like, yeah, let’s manifest. , it’s actually working for people and so that’s why I’d love to bring it
[00:10:47] Tracy Cook: back. I’m so glad that I’m, I’m, first of all, I’m so glad it’s in the Astrology Hub community because I do think it’s, it’s an authentic work and I think it’s important.
Significance of the Aries New Moon
[00:11:00] Tracy Cook: And with Aries, you really need, and I know I said it then, and I’ll say it again, is Aries is about number one, and you really, you have to take a moment and be about. And the beauty about it working on your treasure map is that might be the only three hours in the entire year that is only going to be about you.
[00:11:24] And I want you to be as selfish as you can about you in that time that you make your treasure map, because then you’ll go on and then you’re gonna have to be about everything else. And that, and it’s, it’s a process. And I mean, it’s very difficult for people. Some people. To just be about themselves. Hmm.
2 Aries New Moons: Which Should I Choose?
[00:11:44] Tracy Cook: And this is the, and we’re getting two Aries new moons. And I gotta tell you, that tells me people are needing to figure out themselves. Hmm. Getting two rounds of this. Yeah, let’s
[00:11:56] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: get to that. So normally there’s just one areas New Moon, so it’s very obvious when we should make our treasure maps. But this year, and I remember you bringing this up last year, you were already concerned about it.
[00:12:07] Tracy Cook: I was very concerned about it, yes. But so there’s
[00:12:10] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: two areas, new moons. So which
[00:12:11] Tracy Cook: one do we use? Well, okay, so I had to reach out to some other astrologer friends and do some astro. Who I admired. And one of them, Nick, Nick Deagan Best, who I reached out to, and we had a really nice conversation about it. I, he knew Buzz and so I was, but he didn’t know about treasure mapping.
[00:12:29] And so we talked about that. And then I talked about it with my, my group. And I’ll tell you, so here’s the deal. The last time there were two Aries new moons was in 2000 and. And the last time before that I think was, , oh, 1928 was the time before 2004.
[00:12:50] So that’s not very, we got close to one in, 85, but we didn’t have it. So it was 2004 and 1928. We’re not gonna have another one until 2053. So, I wasn’t really, you know, I, I wasn’t on my game on the 2004 one in a way that I feel like I should have been, but I had a new toddler and I, I’m, you know, I’m lucky I had clothes that were semi clean , so I wasn’t really focused.
[00:13:16] But, but here’s what I will say, with Aries with this year,
[00:13:22] Tracy Cook: we’re gonna have. The areas New Moon, the first one is March 21st, 10:23 AM Pacific Daylight Time, and that’ll be zero degrees and 50 minutes of an arc
[00:13:35] and then the second one will be April 19th at 9:12 PM At 29. Aries. So you can see how close it is to almost Taurus, but they are, it’s not Taurus. It is Aries, just like the other one at Zero is not Pisces, it’s Aries. So we have these two Aries, and traditionally the way we do maps is. And I, and I’m pretty kind of a stickler on this, is that you start your map on the Zu moon.
[00:14:07] You do not start, you never start your map before in Ary Sioux Moon. You have to, the energy is that dynamic and that different, you must wait until it launches and then you make your map and you take the waxing moon to do it. But once the full moon happens, we’re done. And then if you didn’t get your map, In that time then this isn’t the year you’re doing a map, so you, you know, you have that two weeks, you have 14 days to get your map together.
[00:14:36] And honestly I think that’s honoring Aries cuz Aries is very much about do it now and Aries doesn’t have a lot, isn’t long on patients. So, but now here we have, we’ve got this one followed by that one. And so here’s what I wanna. If you know astrology really well and you know your chart, you might wanna look at the two moon, the two areas, new moon charts and see which one kind of feels like it’s a good fit for you.
[00:15:08] And if you know your chart, you’ll probably say, well, I really like that the um, that mercury in the first one is going to be at uh, five degrees areas cuz I’ve got a Venus there and that’s gonna feel really great. And then someone else will say, well, I really like that. Mars in the second one will be at 13 degrees cancer, and I’ve got a mooning cancer, so that’s gonna be really great. So I’m gonna do the second one. So you astrologers out. There are people, you know your charts. You can look at the two and say, okay, that’s what I’m gonna do.
[00:15:38] I’ll do this one or I’ll do that one. Now, those of you who don’t know your. You might choose to do one over the other strictly because of your schedule. You know what? I’m going away with my family in April. The last thing I wanna do is have to think about that. I’m gonna do the March one. Okay, go for it. Or the vice versa. And someone says, March is overwhelming. I’m gonna do the April one. Great. Your schedule says I gotta do this one and not that one. And then there are maybe are going to be some people, and I think I might be this person, which is, I’m gonna cut out some images on the first S map. I don’t know if I’m going to glue ’em. . But after the Full Moon starts in on April 5th for that first, you know, every new Moon has a companion full. And April 5th is the companion full to the March 21st. Then I’m, I’m gonna, I’m gonna stop looking at images. I’m, I’m, this is what I’m thinking I’m gonna do. And remember, I could change my, And then when I come to the second Aries New Moon, I’ll probably do my gluing.
[00:16:57] I might go out and get more images. I’ll sort through everything I picked at this one, and maybe some of them will be strong, still strong for me by the second one, but whatever that is, I’m gonna have it done by the full, by the full moon. I honestly am gonna say this, I’ll probably have it done within a couple of.
[00:17:18] Because this new, this S new Moon has got mercury returning retrograde two days later. So I really kind of wanna beat the retrograde and at that point I will have been thinking about so much of Aries for so long and it’s like, yeah, I just wanna kind of get it done I think. Now the other thing is, and I’m sure Amanda, because of all your guests that you have on the show is, or on your network, is that Pluto will have changed science. Between. So in this or the second one? Yeah. And that’s kind of a, that’s not, I’m not gonna qualify it. That is a big deal. So in this map, Pluto is still at late degrees Capricorn, 29 something. Mm-hmm. , by the time we get to the second one, now it’s at zero degrees Aquarius. And you know, Sometimes I like to lean into the issue. I hate to indicate Pluto as an, when Pluto is ingressing into a new sign. There’s usually . There’s usually some stuff going on, and I, I think I might want that energy, like, okay, well we’re gonna be doing this for 20 years anyway. I might as well start getting my, um, my ducks in a. Yeah. So, and then, um, technically also, I just wanna say for your astro peeps, is that on this moon?
[00:18:45] The first one came to the first one on the first? Yeah. The first one Uhhuh, the sun and the moon will square Mars. The sun and the moon conjunct mercury, the sun and the moon conjunct Neptune, the sun and the moon sextile Pluto, the Sunon semis exile Saturn and Venus conjunct North. No. So that’s, you know, that’s some pluses in some. The square with Mars is a little an But then on the second one, the sun and a moon conjunct Jupiter Sun and a moon sex Saturn, the sun and a moon square Pluto. And then Pluto will be at zero aqua. So that’s a little an, there’s something, the Sun moon square, Pluto. There’s depth in that map. I’m not saying there isn’t depth in this one, but this one has a pronounced Neptune and this one has a pronounced Pluto.
[00:19:30] Way different energies. This is probably gonna have a little bit more mysticism and it’s a little muted. And this one is a little bit more, um, depth and volcanic, I say to you on the islands of Hawaii.
[00:19:46] Tracy Cook: Yes. So, okay, so everybody, so that’s kind of the path that I, I’m taking, but this is like really challenging for me because I, like I said, , um, you know, I’m kind of a stickler, and then you get it here and you have this window, and if you can’t do it, then you’re not doing a moon.
[00:20:05] We’ll, not doing a map, but this year, well, you can getting two bites at the apple. Yes. And that’s the gener that’s generosity by this by spirit. Okay, so
[00:20:16] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: generosity, like we’re, we’re getting, actually, we’re getting a bigger window this year. Yes. So Tracy, is
[00:20:21] Tracy Cook: there an eclipse on one of those? Yes. The second one is the eclipse, and then that has a follow.
[00:20:27] And it is, uh, called a hybrid eclipse, which boy, that’s like a whole brand new language for me cuz I some reason didn’t know that. Which is a, it’s a annual and a total together, but depending on where you are in the world, you can either see it in different perspectives. Honestly, I’m out of my knowledge bank, but I was reading about it a little bit earlier this week and I. Yeah, it’s a potent one. That second one is potent. Wow. And of course, you know, this is all tied to the nodes, and the nodes are changing from Aries Libra to Taurus Scorpion. And that’s why we, that’s why the second one has got the eclipse on it. It’s closest to Taurus. Right.
[00:21:08] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Okay. So I thought we were in tourist Scorpio.
[00:21:11] Now we’re going to s leading. Well,
[00:21:13] Tracy Cook: we, we, we, you know, they, they do a little bit here and a little bit there. Yeah. Ok. And then they, and then they do the official move where now we’re just doing this. I see. And that’s what we’re, okay. We’re doing the
[00:21:22] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: back and forth, okay. Mm-hmm. . So from what I’m understanding, you say we have two Aries new moons.
[00:21:29] Mm-hmm. , both of them have some things about them that make them attractive for this activity, and both have things that make them a little questionable. So what you’re advising is number one, if you know your chart, To compare your personal chart to the chart of the new Moon and then make your your decision from there.
[00:21:51] Yes. If you don’t know how to do that, or that also doesn’t yield a obvious answer, you can choose one based on logistical reasons, like which ones works for your schedule, or you can kind of do both in a way so you can begin the process at that first new Moon. and if it feels great as you’re doing it, just finish it before the full moon.
[00:22:20] So that would be, uh, between March 21st. And what is the full moon after that?
[00:22:25] Tracy Cook: April 5th.
[00:22:27] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Okay. So there’s a window between March 21st and April 5th. So maybe you start the process on March 21st and go, wow, this just feels good and it’s flowing. So I’m gonna stick with that. or you start it and you go, Hmm, maybe I’ll revisit it again at the second New Moon.
[00:22:44] Mm-hmm. , I’ll see if anything has shifted, if anything else has come in, and I will continue and finish the process around that second New Moon. Right. Or a fourth option, which would be you just decide that you’re gonna use the second new one. Mm-hmm. , and you just go with that. So, and if you do, Then what you’re advising is potentially to get it done somewhere between April 19th and April 21st or 22nd?
[00:23:13] Tracy Cook: April nine, April 19th and, oh, did I write May 19th? Does it make sense? I guess I have that wrong. Yeah, I have a typo. Of course I do. These, these Mars and Mercury retrogrades are still damaging our . Yeah. Um, whatever the full Moon is in, um, may, and I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to Well,
[00:23:34] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: but, but you were saying something about a Mercury retrograde too, and that maybe we wouldn’t wanna be doing it during Mercury retrograde.
[00:23:40] Tracy Cook: Yeah, the Mercury retro. That’s right. That’s why, that’s why it stopped myself. The Mercury retrograde happens two days after the April moon, April. Is on the 19th. The Mercury retrograde happens on the 21st. Okay. Alright, so, but the full Moon is just because I wanna button this up, is May 5th.
[00:24:05] Yeah, so
[00:24:06] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: technically we have from April 19th to May 5th, but you may want to get yours done before Mercury Rose retrograde. Mm-hmm. again, I’d say that might be chart dependent, right? Like that Mercury retrograde may actually help you get mm-hmm.
[00:24:20] Tracy Cook: even more clear. Yes, because we have had, we’ve had plenty of Aries new moons over the course of the last, whatever nineties existed now 20, 25 years.
[00:24:31] Maybe more. We, we’ve had plenty of, Aries new moons that had a Mercury retrograde built into.
Opportunity for Revision at Cancer New Moon
[00:24:37] Tracy Cook: One
[00:24:37] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: of the things I remember you saying about that is that by the cancer new move, yes, sometimes there’s things that you might wanna revise or update. If you wanna revisit our discussion about this last year, you can go to episode 4 62 and listen to the original conversation. But basically, , so we’re gonna make these maps here in either March or April. Mm-hmm. or both depending on what you decide to do with these two
[00:25:02] Tracy Cook: new moons.
[00:25:03] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: then you said don’t touch it. Except at the Cancer New Moon,
[00:25:09] Tracy Cook: you can make a, it’s a small edge,
[00:25:12] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: small, small adjustment. If there’s something glaring. And you gave the example of your friend who did a map and there was a guy on her map that she ended up breaking up with. So by the Cancer New Moon,
[00:25:25] Tracy Cook: he was out.
[00:25:26] Yes. She had to get him off that map. Yeah,
[00:25:28] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: she had to get him off that map.
Trusting Choices for Your Map
[00:25:30] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: But, but that basically, when we do the work in March and April, We trust it and, and that’s been an interesting thing for me, Tracy, is to see that there were things that I put on my map that I didn’t necessarily know why I was putting him on.
[00:25:44] I just was drawn to the image or I was drawn to the symbol of something and I put it on, and now it’s obvious. Why I put it on, but then it wasn’t, and so one of the things that you’ve encouraged from us is this trust in, in our intuitive process of selecting Yeah. What we wanna put on the map and not to second guess it.
[00:26:07] Because if we like plant the seed in the ground and then we tear it out before it’s had a chance to grow, right. You know, dig it up and tear it out and go, oh, I know I want different seeds. We’re sort of, we’re not capitalizing on. The energy of that area’s energy of starting something, we’re actually starting and stopping and interfering
[00:26:26] Tracy Cook: with the process of growth, right?
[00:26:28] Correct. And we talked about this last time are we telling our intention in the universe is responding or is there is the universe telling something and our intention is responding? Right. We don’t know which one is which.
[00:26:44] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: That has been fascinating. Yes.
[00:26:46] Tracy Cook: And I had, so I, I don’t know, I
Treasure Mapping Stories
[00:26:50] Tracy Cook: do you want me to share a couple stories from some of my people?
[00:26:52] Yes, yes. So I, well, before I get to her, I’ll, cuz I think her story is, I’ll, I’ll put a little pin in that. I’m gonna come back to it but I. I reached out and got some stories.
[00:27:05] Tracy Cook: So Treasure mapper number one.
[00:27:08] She had some beautiful things, and this is a current map, so this one is still working because this map doesn’t end until March when we begin the new Aries. And she had this, and so I reached out and they told me, they gave me some manifest. She had this car, she had this bed. She said, your voice is your power.
[00:27:31] She put this like really strong woman. I don’t know if you can see that. She, um, she put a lot of travel. She put this woman doing yoga and it seems to have a strong help. And some of the things that she told me was that she got a new car and she hadn’t, she, and she, she put that on there because she thought it was a, But she ended up getting a new car and she said something kind of, I thought was very profound.
[00:27:57] She said, it’s the first car that I bought with my own money and not with the help of my husband, which kind of goes back to the strong woman and just kind of finding herself. Wow. And she said, and, and then one of her, um, one of her sons was working at a furniture store and he somehow reached out to his mom and said, I think I can get you a deal on a brand.
[00:28:20] Whole bedroom set at cost and or yeah. What GA cost and I never get that right. And so she got, so she got that and this was like kind of random, kind of not right. And her health is, comp has really improved.
[00:28:37] She, she has this woman doing yoga. And she reached out to this gym that she thought was super expensive and she called them up and they had this amazing deal that she would get in at a really, I mean way, uh, more than 50% off. And so she joined them and they have these great yoga classes, and she did that and that letter to a yoga woman’s.
[00:29:04] Wow. See how, yeah, so everything kind, and she didn’t know any of this when she made her map last spring, right? But this is how things have been unfolding.
[00:29:12] Tracy Cook: And then this map, this treasure mapper, number two, she did this from 2020 and I loved her sanctuary and joy and our doors always open. And she told me she got a house that year unexpectedly that was real at an amazing price.
[00:29:29] And they. And they were so, it was like the big boon of the year. This wonderful house that was a, was a surprise. And I had noted raising the bar, she had raising the bar on her map. Wow. And it felt like when she described this house, that that was occurring. Oh. And she also had, so right over here she has, when you truly love yourself, you inspire others, which is so love. And she, um, she sold a published piece with her, you know, with her name and it was hers and she sold it, which of course is very inspiring.
[00:30:02] Tracy Cook: So Treasure Mapper number three. Again, I’m always playing this game like, can you see it?
[00:30:07] Can you not? ? And so she, she had a lot of traveling and she said, we have done so much traveling this year, and it’s been really fun. And then she also, Celebrate low weight. She said this has been a really good year with her and her weight. And I always like to be careful when I talk about that cause I don’t wanna trigger people or have judgements.
[00:30:28] But for her it’s been really, she’s really proud and pleased and she’s still got more to go and that’s a journey. And then she also had more journey stuff here and then she had some financial, um, oh, I, oh, I have to go back to that. Oh, this one over here, this gal, she said that they increased their finances by something like $70,000.
[00:30:50] And that was on her map. Was that? Yeah. She has, um, successful home, business and powerful, and I think that was part of the part of it. Amazing. Um, but over here she had financial goals and. Accomplish them. And again, this is a map that is still working and she’s working more on building up her savings.
[00:31:08] But sometimes you gotta do the accomplished financial goals before you can go to savings. They’re, they’re, they’re, they’re important.
[00:31:15] Tracy Cook: And this is the one that triggered me to even talk about it. Treasure mapper. Number four, by the way, I forgot to put four. What was Mercury? Mercury is still so in its shadow anyway.
[00:31:28] This was so interesting because when I spoke to her, I was a little baffled because she’s, she said, oh yeah, I’m willing to share my map. I said, well, tell me some of your manifestations. And she said, well, I had a lot of health issues. And I said, I said, okay, really . And um, and she cited a lot of different things.
[00:31:53] And it really kind of wiped her out, but she sounded so positive. I had to call her to just really talk about this, and she said what we were talking about. She said, I, what I understand from doing my maps, and I’ve been doing it for a long time, is I’m clear cognizant she knows things before she knows them. And we’ve talked about this a lot with maps that you. You’re, you’re doing your map, you’re very focused on your map. You’re doing it in your living room. You’re asking your friends, or maybe your kid or whoever wear’s my glue. You’re here, you’re kind of outta your body a little bit. Mm-hmm. , at least I am.
[00:32:36] Mm-hmm. , I’m someplace else when I’m doing my map and I, and why images are doing something for me. Mm-hmm. and on her map, she had cultivate calm, she had thrived, she had a little elephant with a big elephant. Healed, heal, feeling healed feels good, and the health stuff, it was almost as if in talking with her, what she said was like the health thing was gonna come no matter what, but I was ready for it. So she was working with herself. She didn’t, she was less alone because she knew that this map, which she was working with Spirit, was kind of guiding. Wow. And she said there were a lot of changes in her family and her older son had to come live with her. And she said that’s kind of how the el when she thinks about that.
[00:33:31] And she’s happy that he is there, but she sort of thinks of the elephant with the young elephant and, and so there was just, and she, and this one I really enjoyed because it’s sitting on the beach and she said, you know, because of my health stuff, I had to do a lot of relax. And I was on the beach a lot this summer, so, and she does, and I asked her about honestly simple, and she said, my life is really, my goals are really there.
[00:33:58] And I, they’re manifesting all the time. And
Beliving in Your Map
[00:34:01] Tracy Cook: so you, so maps are, maps are funny. They, how we communicate with ourselves to build our map. Each one is d. And, but they talked to us in ways that we might not know, and I’m not sure which one this was. I think, I think it was Treasure Map burn number two who said,
[00:34:25] she said, I’ve been doing maps for five years, and the first three was kind of not as successful, but the last two have really been success. and she said, I think it’s because once I allowed myself to understand that these things were possible, I got more of my stuff, more of my manifestations. So you know, we, yeah.
[00:34:46] Right. That’s helpful to
[00:34:47] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: know cuz I know that, you know, some people have had like pretty immediate results. Mm-hmm. and others are like, you know, some have happened and some haven’t. But I love that caveat of. Allowing, first of all, allowing yourself to really surrender to the process and trust the process itself, but then also, The belief part, the, the right.
[00:35:12] Believing in yourself, believing in the magic of the process, and Yeah. And this clear, clear, cognizant. Yeah. This idea of like, you know, you, you are aware of more than what you realize and allowing yourself to trust that, you know, I, I,
Amanda’s Treasure Mapping Experience
[00:35:29] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: I told the story of, I, I, I’ve had some really obvious ones. I had my daughters with these baby goats on the My Map, and I just love baby goats.
[00:35:43] I just, I love their sounds. I love the way they frolic through the field. Like they just delight me and it’s not that I want to have my own baby like a bunch, because of course they become adult goats, and I, I don’t, that’s not what I’m, I wanted, I just wanted to be surrounded by baby goats and I. It is astounding to me that at almost every part of this year, not entirely, but almost every month, there have been baby goats in my life.
[00:36:14] Mm-hmm. , one neighbor or another has baby goats that are making their cute sounds and just the cutest thing for me to look at. and that was, that one was like, wow. Then I’ve, I’ve wanted my own office slash podcast studio for years. I mean, at least seven years, and this is the year where it happened, and it’s very hard to find people here to work on projects.
[00:36:43] So I, for those of you who don’t know, I live on Maui and it’s, it’s just really hard to find. To find builders, to find contract, to find a neat one. And our friend, who is an amazing. Contractor who never has time for little tiny projects, like my little office had this random weird opening in his schedule.
[00:37:06] He was excited to do the project because he could mainly work on it at his house. And he was, well, this, I should have told this other part of the story first, but he was one of the people who took one of the puppies from our litter that we randomly had. And I’ll tell that story in a sec. And so he wanted to be home to train the puppy.
[00:37:26] Yeah. And so he could work on my project at his house cuz we made it modular. So if I ever move or whatever, I can bring the office with me. So he, he built my office, which I have. And that was on my, my Treasure map. Mm-hmm. is an office, my own space to do my work. It’s ever spent since everything happened in 2020 with Covid and trying to work with the children in the house and all that.
[00:37:48] It was like, oh my God, I need my own space. Right. So that happened Also the puppies thing. So my daughter made her treasure map and she loves animals and her whole entire treasure map was baby animals of all sorts. And so then our dog ended up, our dogs ended up. Parenting a litter of puppies that enabled Sophia to be surrounded by babies and then, and then enabled my office vision to come to.
[00:38:19] So it’s, it was amazing to not only see, and this is just some, a few examples of an almost 100%
[00:38:28] Tracy Cook: treasure map. Yeah. From
[00:38:29] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: last March to now has come true. The only one that I’m still, um, manifesting. The headquarters for Astrology Hub, which I would love. Uh, but it, I guess in my mind, that’s still probably a longer term, like in my mind that’s, that’s a longer term vision, but maybe it doesn’t have to be.
[00:38:49] So for those of us who made, who made treasure maps in March, who some things have not yet come, and it doesn’t seem like they’re gonna come in the next couple months,
[00:38:58] Tracy Cook: would you? No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. They could, they could, they could. I had a map one year. Major pieces came the last week of the map.
[00:39:10] Wow. Okay. So there’s 50, 52 weeks in a year, week 51, all this stuff came in. Wow. Okay. So don’t
[00:39:18] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: give up hope. That’s one. No. Number two, if by the time we go to to, to do our next treasure maps, if it has not yet come through and we still want it. Yeah. Would you recommend that we put it on the map again? Sure.
[00:39:30] Tracy Cook: you’re still feeling it Once the new Moon launches, if you’re still feeling like, I wanna do another round on that, go for it. I bet you it’ll have a little different take. Yeah. And that might be the thing that locks. Unlocks it. Mm-hmm. . But yeah, for sure.
Treasure Mapping Live Workshop
[00:39:47] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Okay. All right. So one of the things we’re gonna be doing this year that’s new is we’re going to be having a workshop, like a live workshop, where we’re doing these maps together.
[00:39:59] This is gonna be free for all of our Inner Circle members. So membership is gonna be opening up for a period of time in March, and if you do decide to join us and or if you’re already a member, then you can actually join us for the New Moon on April. Twentie. So we’re gonna be in that window that mm-hmm.
[00:40:19] before the
[00:40:20] Tracy Cook: Mercury. Yes, it launches on the 19th, but it’s, but the retrogrades on the 21st, and we’re just going to thread that needle right then and have fun.
[00:40:28] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Yes, we’re gonna have fun and do it together, and we’re gonna do it not as a webinar, but as a meeting so everybody can be on screen. You don’t have to be on screen, but if you have a question as you’re doing your map, you can just raise your hand and ask it and we’ll be, we’ll be discussing it.
[00:40:43] We’ll play some inspirational music. We’ll just hang out together and do our maps, and we’ll give you a checklist of all the things. that you’ll want to gather before that, so that everything’s just right there in front of you, and that makes that easy.
Protecting & Displaying Your Treasure Map
[00:40:57] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: The other thing that I’ve had the idea, and I’m just, this is like a business idea for anybody out there who feels inspired to do it, but I have wanted so much this year to have a frame to put my treasure map in.
[00:41:11] Mm-hmm. , because what I have found is, is, um, , it’s gotten like messed up a little bit because I, I had it, I had it hanging on the wall for a while, but then I didn’t want hanging on the wall because I was having some guests and I was like, I dunno if I really want this out for everybody to see. So I put it under my bed, but then it got thrashed under there, and then we had the puppies and everything.
[00:41:31] So it just, I, I’ve been wanting some, some way to protect it and also beautifully, have it out, you know, in a way. Yeah, like aesthetically pleasing way. So like an idea for anybody out there who is feeling inspired maybe. Maybe someone needs to make treasure map frames that Yeah, yeah. That kinda match.
[00:41:52] You just pop
[00:41:53] Tracy Cook: out, you pop out your second frames that can handle this kinda size. Yes. Yeah. . Yeah. It’s,
[00:41:58] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: it’s a big, it’s a big frame, but I think if we had some, some way to display it for ourselves, and now that I have my office, I’m like, Ooh, I can actually put it up in my office and I’ll, I don’t feel like I’ll have to take it up and down.
[00:42:11] Um, but just a way, just think it through though, a little bit. How are you gonna want to have it up or not up? Like where are you gonna store it? How big do you want yours to be? So that if you do wanna put on the wall, you can actually put, you have a place to put it and then have maybe even a way to hang it or like put it on a, on a mat or something that makes it a little thicker.
[00:42:37] So that you can easily place it up. I don’t know. I’m thinking through these things because what happened to mine is there was a period of time where it was under my bed. When I pulled it out, there were things that had fallen off, and what was interesting was to note what had fallen off. The only way I knew what had fallen off was I had taken a picture of it.
[00:42:56] Mm-hmm. . So I looked at the picture, I was like, Ooh, interesting. The things that fell off are actually kind of things. I’m okay letting
[00:43:04] Tracy Cook: go. .
[00:43:05] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Oh, interesting. The other things that fell off were things that I needed to put more attention on. Mm-hmm. that I, I had let them go. Yeah. And that I needed to put more of my energy towards.
[00:43:15] So it, that was actually an interesting thing in and of itself.
[00:43:18] Tracy Cook: But I had, uh, on my husband’s map, he had the word Kyoto on there cuz you really wanted to go and I certainly wanted to go in about a week ago, maybe a week and a half ago, I noticed that Kyoto was on the. And I noticed that. And then a couple days later there was somebody in, somebody I knew, one of my friends kind of put on Facebook.
[00:43:44] Here I am in here, I am in Tokyo. And I said, are you going to Kyoto? Oh, heavens yes. And then later that day I saw some friends who had just had got, had their h. And I knew they went to Japan and I said, did you go to Kyoto? Yes, we went to Kyoto. So I had all this Kyoto around me and it was weird that his Kyoto had fallen.
[00:44:07] I think that might mean I have to get in that fight for Kyoto. Interesting.
[00:44:12] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
Focusing on Desires & Community
[00:44:13] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: The, the other thing too, Tracy, that’s been been really interesting to experience is, is I feel like part of doing the map, especially if we really let it be these deep desires from within us, and we don’t limit ourselves and we, we just allow it to, to come out.
[00:44:35] That it’s also helping us to just focus our attention and awareness on these things that we really want, which again, we forget about, we get into our, our daily reality and sometimes survival mode and just, you know, like you said, I, I know many people in our audience, they have kids and they’re running businesses or they’re, you know, they’re doing a lot of things in their lives and it can be easy to forget what it is that we really, really want deep down.
[00:45:02] Yeah. And. The process of treasure mapping helps us ask those questions and get clear for ourselves, and then the, the, the process and also of checking in at every quarter. at, you know, the, the cancer Yes. Libra. Libra and Cap. And that checking back in and being like, you know, did I, have I prioritized these things?
[00:45:27] Have I mm-hmm. thought about them ever since I put them on this board, or did I just forget about them? And so I think it’s, it’s both, you know, I think the universe is doing what it’s doing to bring these things into our lives. And then we also need to water them and put sunshine in on them and fertilize them and, and give them energy, you know, just like.
[00:45:47] they’re part of our garden that we’re tending to.
[00:45:50] Tracy Cook: There’s also something, and I kind of feel this with Pluto and Aquarius is collective energy too, as we’re heading towards that, just knowing that our little tribe is doing this and we know we can reach out to somebody, Hey, what do you think about this?
[00:46:08] What about that? There’s, that’s kind of where we’re headed for a. When Pluto makes to move. Yeah, I love
[00:46:14] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: that. And I love thinking about how all this aquarium and energy is gonna help us come together and do these types of activities with intention and, um, awareness and then also mutual support of each other.
[00:46:29] You know, how, how doing this, these things together we can continue to grow in that way. And Aquarius
[00:46:34] Tracy Cook: is astrology.
[00:46:35] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Right. And Aquarius is astrology, amazing astrology and community. Right? Right. And mm-hmm. technology. So I imagine, and technology,
[00:46:43] Tracy Cook: one of the, and some people will make map. We should remind people, some people will make cyber maps.
[00:46:47] And that’s totally fine. Totally
[00:46:49] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: fine. You have seen no difference between the, okay, between the effectiveness of,
[00:46:54] Tracy Cook: of doing like no, people have had people in, in fact, I think one of these actually was a cyber map. I think that first one she just, maybe the image of it, but I think hers was cyber. I think maybe I, maybe I’m, I might be wrong, but I know we’ve had cyber.
Important Preparation for Your Treasure Map
[00:47:08] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: I know there’s something very specifically that we need to be doing between this capitol. Yes, we do. And the S New Moon. So tell us very
[00:47:17] Tracy Cook: now. Yes. Now we have some time for it. Because I crashed and burned you last year when I said, you have one week to do this. Like, oh my God. Yes. Everybody needs to start cleaning their houses.
[00:47:29] Start getting rid of the things that are broken. Start getting rid of the things you don’t love. Start getting rid of the things. You don’t need anymore. Clear, clear, clear declutter like you’re a crazy person. And when we declutter, we clear out all this nonsense because no matter what you say, when you walk by that broken chair, you feel bad, you feel frustrated, you feel angry, you feel bad.
[00:47:56] Get it out. Get it outta your. Get rid of the clutter. So it’s decluttering your, getting rid of things that you know, like, um, Marie, uh, condo, you don’t love it. If it doesn’t spark you, it doesn’t spark joy. Get rid of it. We have to do that. And when we get rid of stuff and we clear the space so that the universe can respond to us, you have the space now. And it’s not just about things that we want in our life. We also have to kind of clear. Belief systems too. I’ll never have blank. I’ll ne I don’t deserve, so everybody else gets this, not me. Whatever those things are, get rid of ’em.
[00:48:40] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Even mine, Tracy, it’s gonna take a long time to get
[00:48:43] Tracy Cook: this. Yes, no.
[00:48:46] Cause it’s not necessarily
[00:48:48] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: true. Yeah. You pointed that out for sure. Yeah. So, so between now and. March 21st, would you give us the deadline of the first
[00:48:57] Tracy Cook: S New Moon? Yeah, definitely the first S New Moon.
[00:49:00] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Okay. Between now and March 21st, we are clearing the clutter in our homes, in our
[00:49:07] Tracy Cook: cars, cars, in our offices, anywhere we’ve got clutter.
[00:49:13] I mean, honestly, I really should go through the storage unit. If I have the strength, I will. Mm. I gotta, I gotta warn my husband cuz he doesn’t have the strength. I really wanna clear a lot of that, even though it’s not on my property. It’s over there somewhere, but it’s over there when we are making me feel bad, like why do I still have crap in there?
[00:49:35] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: Uh, you know what? It, it matters. It’s, it does matter. It’s energetically cluttering your life and your mind and your, like. There will be, there will be such a lightness in going through and clearing some things out, and who knows? Maybe you’ll find some treasures that you wanna, yeah. Bring into your home right now.
[00:49:55] Tracy Cook: exactly. Yeah. But I definitely need to get the boxes from the tax returns from 2008 to 2020. . I think I can go get rid of them. Yes. And I’ll take ’em to Staples cuz they’ll shred, they can shred ’em in Staples for like a. A dollar a pound or something well cheap. There, there
[00:50:11] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: may be people who need some of the things that we are just holding onto, like be donating them and, and giving them to people who might actually use them instead of just yes.
[00:50:20] Sitting and collecting dust in our homes, so, right. Yes. I love it. All right, so we have our assignment. We will be decluttering between now and March 21st. Mm-hmm. , you make space for very new energy. We will be, if you know how to look at your chart, you’ll be looking at your chart and making a choice about which new moon you want to align your treasure mapping activities with.
[00:50:45] You will be, Thinking about what kinds of things you might want to have on your treasure map. I literally have been making a list in my notes on my phone
[00:50:54] Tracy Cook: since last March, literally. And I always remind you your list could be 30 things and when Aries New Moon comes, you know what? Only four of them really interests me cuz we this perfect energy, energy ships.
[00:51:06] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: So you can be thinking about it, but yes, like Tracy says, you just leave room for like, don’t get too attached to any of those things. Yeah. But you could be, um, you know, thinking about it, gathering imagery and things that you might want to use, but,
[00:51:19] Tracy Cook: yeah. Well, you can g you can, don’t be looking for your images yet.
[00:51:23] Don’t do that. But if you’ve got friends that are throwing away magazines, go ahead and, Hey, do you mind, I, I could have those and then put ’em to the. Open them up after s Doo Moon, just, you know, I, we don’t care if they’re used, but in my old days I used to say new magazines. But no, nobody’s got that kind of money.
[00:51:42] Just use, just get some used ones from my friends or libraries and put it to the side and they’ll be new to you and you’ll see what you feel like on after the New Moon launch. Libraries have great huge
[00:51:56] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: collections of magazines. Yeah. National Geographic and things like, yeah, you can definitely get and online too.
[00:52:03] I, I loved online. I loved actually after, I didn’t do this before the New Moon last year or in, in last March, but I went and sought out specific imagery that I wanted online. Mm-hmm. . Yeah. And then I printed things. Yeah. So I had things printed, uh, and then, Basically we’ll be gathering on April 20th to do this in community.
[00:52:27] Um, and what else? Anything else,
[00:52:31] Tracy Cook: Tracy? No, I think that’s it. I mean, I’m looking forward to the April 20th event cuz I’m looking forward to people holding things. Do you guys think that this is this or this? Is that Yes, this is like abundant.
[00:52:43] Tracy Cook: So if
[00:52:44] Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh: you are a member of the Inner Circle, you will get automatically invited to that new Moon, in Aries on the 20th.
[00:52:51] If you are not yet a member of the Inner Circle and you’re interested in potentially joining us, we will be opening doors in March. So you can get on the wait list right now at

Um, and then you can, you can revisit our episode from last year if you need more details on mm-hmm. , how to actually do it Again, that’s episode number. 4 62. So episode number 4 62.
[00:53:33] Yeah, we
[00:53:33] Tracy Cook: covered a lot of ground in that in the, and we did two. We did one, we did two, and then we did, came back in the cancer and did third.
