Eight Years and Seven Planets

May 3rd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

For the last eight years, Brooklyn based artist Jesse Bransford has been deeply engaged with the seven ancient astrological planets.

Starting with the Sun, he’s been researching, painting, and writing about each planet and their mysterious influences on our world.

His journey has led him across cultures, time periods, and political and philosophical world views.

This summer he’ll conclude his series with Saturn, a perfect planet to end with.

His work is great. You can see some of it here, and read an interview with him by Kari Adelaide.

Some of his work will be part of the Sigils and Signs show I wrote about a few weeks ago. But hopefully, there’ll also be a show for Saturn itself. I’ll be looking out for it.

Till then though, you can take a look at the video below of Bransford creating a wall painting as part of his Moon installation back in 2009.

It’s beautiful.

Moon in Libra – High Priestess in Justice’s Clothing

The High Priestess in Justice's Clothing

High Priestess as Justice

The Moon moved into Libra today, and will stay there until Saturday.

Looking at this transit through the lens of the Tarot, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing Justice’s clothing. She takes on the mantle of the Karmic Decider.

With the High Priestess as Justice, or the Moon in Libra, we might be required to face up to something and decide.

Our emotions will demand respect. If we’ve leaned too far back or forward, we’ll probably find ourselves moving just as dramatically the other way.

It can be a slightly challenging period, perhaps a little manic. But by the time it’s done, something is likely to have been decided upon.

Don’t be alarmed by conflicting emotions. They’re there because you can see both sides. It’s not good enough though to just acknowledge them and walk away.

During this transit you’re being asked to take a stand one way or another. And you’ve got the wisdom and power to do so.

Tarot Card of the Day – 5/3/12

Queen of Wands from Georgie's Tarot

Queen of Wands

Be yourself and be it fully.  This is a day for you to shine.  You know yourself and you’ve been true to your soul.  It’s always worth it and now you’re remembering why.

As you harness your energy to create your will, do so with compassion.  Remember what you suffered to get to your present state.  Have compassion for those that are still struggling.  They can use your inspiration, but remember your strength. Be careful not to burn them.

Take pride in your self and your work, but don’t get carried away.  You’re most beautiful when you’re humble, while letting your fire soar.
