High Priestess v1



A certain person put a bug in my ear concerning Tarot Art and here's the first installment of a possible Tarot Deck...just a quick rendition actually, and about 2/3 completed. Comments encouraged!

Mosey over to Cosmic Persona Designs to see a newly-posted art representation of "12 Cancer" from the Sabian Symbols pantheon. It's not really a pantheon...I just wanted to end the sentence with the word, pantheon.

"12Can": "A Woman Nursing a Baby with a Message" and archetypally it puts one in mind of the Dalai Lama. But also of Baby Jesus on whom all other archetypes were based whether they knew/know it or not.

Rainy Tree v1



Here's a new drawing begun earlier this week. You can see there's still a good bit of black background showing so I've got a lot to do to complete this one! You may ID three planetary symbols hidden about somewhere.

And a forest fairy has alighted in a nook...we'll see if any other fairies show up as things progress... . .

Minerva's Glen



Here's Minerva's Glen with Owl coming in for a landing. This drawing was originally perpetrated for my dummybook of Pattillo Armadillo who went to NYC but didn't satisfy the Little, Brown editors or their list. One may always blame "the list" for the particular season--usually twice a year inside the more traditional dino-sauwahs of the publishing "world". It's always a "world," isn't it?

And yet a ms must also have some coherence--and still be unique--to be on a list with other works. It must fit in but stand out. Kahpeesh?

Sabian Symbol "5Sag"> "A wise old owl up in a tree." We each have "5 Sagittarius" somewhere in our charts. Where is yours? Disclosure: Mine is in 3rd house natally.

Night Scene of the Secret Moon



Number 1v1...fairies showed up uninvited, but I suppose they generally would.

And what is a 'secret moon'? There are Black Moons, three Liliths (which at least one may be referred to as Black Moon Lilith) plus you'll see mentions of Dark Moons such as 'dark moon w'mat2' and such in Astrology. Yet Astrology is a language which DESCRIBES these things--it doesn't perpetrate them. Opposite our physical Moon is a dark point in space--a non-Moon...exactly where the Moon is not...and most definitely an unconscious, hidden point.

Then there's the dark phase of the moon--the New Moon when the Sun and Moon catch up with each other and no light reflects from our satellite Moon. This is the beginning of the most basic cycle we know--the Sun's consciousness + Moon's unconsciousness-->Sun = adult personality, and Moon = childhood, or even "the divine child" within.

The Moon's position in your natal chart describes genetic inheritance in a fundamental way and tells about your reigning needs. Then one may translate these factors into archetypal images and myths under which we all must labor. The Moon is tribal...the astrological Moon is the Mother archetype and the nurturing principle. And so she has connections to Ecology and to Environmentalism...to our Mother, Earth.

The Collective Unconscious is very active in the world today and we especially see CETUS the Whale lifted up in many ways--a constellation's myth which is connected to Jonah and the Whale--recalcitrant Jonah who refused to Say What Should Be Said.

...and someone speaking the truth would be refreshing for a change, wouldn't it?

Speak it if you know it!
