Astrology Day Blogathon 2010: A Cosmic Art Gallery

Hello and Welcome to A Cosmic Art Gallery published in honor of International Astrology Day Blogathon 2010!

You'll find Blogathon articles written by various astrologers which suggest practical solutions for the problems we all may encounter during the reign of the difficult Cardinal T-Square and Grand Cross patterns of planetary energies bedeviling our world 2010 - 2014.

Read to glean practical ideas for trying times from noted astrologers with special emphasis placed on the three planets involved in the Cardinal T-Square.

Here's the line-up of articles and the dates they go Live:

Friday March 19, Skywriter's Pluto Problems Got You Perplexed? Here's What Helps by Donna Cunningham.

Saturday March 20, Astroair's Look After Saturn and Saturn Will Look After You by Mandi Lockley.

Sunday March 21, Aunti Moon's Uranus in Aries: Claiming a Self Reliant Future by C. J. Wright.


Many other astrologers are taking part as well including astrologer Neeti Ray so be sure to check out Neeti's insightful work at Astrology Expressed.

Our Cosmic Art Gallery 2010 opens with a spinning Cosmic Art Cube featuring Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, Earth's Moon, and Jupiter - simply point to the Cube to spin, speed up, or slow down your view.

Then you'll find the Cube's 6 images displayed in full (below) along with a celestial illustration drawn in 1996, View from Cave Observatory, plus, a link to a rather psychedelic Secret Moon Art Kaleidoscope Slideshow being published in solidarity with all my fellow Flower Power Baby Boomers - and the rest of humanity, too!



A strong brew: Saturn in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries, squaring Pluto...



Saturn Spies the Moon



Uranian Road is a quirky path!


Now lumbering through Saturn-ruled Capricorn, red-hued Pluto Draws Near:



Yet affirmingly, here's a serene fairy cove lighted by Orion's Moon ...



Created during my own Jupiter Return of 1996, here is my previously published Merit Award winner in a city college exhibition during Atlanta's 1996 Olympic Games, Timeless Path, meant to add the faith of Jupiter to our Art-Astrology collaboration:



And last of the spinning Cosmic Art Cube's 6 images: Faceted in Space...



Image #7 is View from Cave Observatory which reminds me of Astrology's As Above, So Below principle now being used by my able colleagues to write their articles on the difficult energies affecting the collective as the Great Cosmic Clock of our Solar System times events here upon Earth and yields astrological clues about how best to manage our issues and concerns.



Now here is your invitation to view a special Secret Moon Art Kaleidoscope Slideshow of Moon-infused images, if you wish.

In addition, please check out my new Cosmic Flowers Slideshow if you find a free moment. This 'puzzle-style' presentation goes along with the Blogathon's Flower Essences suggestions for healing, soothing, and making it through life's storms.

And if you wish to browse you'll discover that 'Uranian Road' and other Cosmic Art images are now adorning T-Shirts, Ladies' Keds, Wall Art Posters, and more in my Zazzle Art Shop.

Well, thanks for clicking in and I sincerely hope you enjoyed my Cosmic Art Gallery set up for Astrology Day Blogathon 2010. My special thanks happily go to Donna Cunningham, C.J. Wright, and Mandi Lockley, all wonderful astrologers and writers, for inviting me to participate!

#6--witty! and 7 are my faves, but then what of yours isn't?! Love the cube,too. Looking forward to the Blogathon--jd

jude cowell said...

Thanks, Julie! My fave is #6 at the moment but maybe it's because it's my most recently completed 'child'. jc

Donna Cunningham said...

What a beautiful exhibit, Jude! Thank you so much for creating it for the blogathon. You've included some of my old favorites and some stunning new pieces. Congratulations! Donna Cunningham

NR said...

I love the "Timeless Path."

jude cowell said...

NR, thank you! Timeless Path has been in my top few faves since 1996. Only wish i could find the same super-black, super-smooth textured paper i was using then.

Shame really. Jude

Illyria said...

Thank you so much, these paintings are beautiful and moving. I'd love to use some as computer desktop images but they're quite small. Could you post them with 2MP resolution? I'm also very fond of "Timeless Path"

Illyria, thank you so much and am glad you too like Timeless Path!

The original drawing is quite large (esp framed) and Sold during the Olympics of 1996 to a photographer, Ruth Gogel (Gogle?)

So the Timeless Path image i use online is simply a scan of the professional photograph of the drawing.

If you wish to snag a good quality download for desktops and print-outs may i suggest my Lulu Storefront which contains a variety of images (including Fairy Art and more); plus today i added 2 of the cosmic drawings from this very gallery!

And i'd be happy as a puppy with 2 tails if you'd check it out!

Appreciate your commenting, Jude

Illyria said...

'course I will, thanks very much for the link :-) . Though it's a pity Timeless Path isn't available. Couldn't you rescan the photograph with a higher scanning resolution? I'd certainly pay for the download. I'd really like to send it to a special person with an approaching Jupiter return.

Why thank you, Anonymous, and big future thnx go to all the silent and vocal Anonymusses out there who may ever read this reply to your kind comment!

Yet it would be remiss of me (as this blog's author and artist) not to point out that there aren't actually any 'paints' here, only watercolour and oil pencils, plus, the occasional use of an ink pen.

Thanks a bunch for dropping in!

Happy Spring 2010, Jude

jude cowell said...

Oh and Donna, i believe i didn't say, Thank You! for your continued encouragement of my online freebie works of Art and Astrology!

Happy Spring 2010, Donna, and you know i want to link to (or embed?) your gorgeous Flower Photo spinning Cube - smashing!

So now, when your Flower Photos are all famous i can say, she saw my spinning Art Cube and ran with it..Bravo!
