The consistency of our Celestial Climate Forecasts is lacking these days and this is another month where current personal conditions keep me from focused writing. At least we have some dates below and a Book of the Month.
If you notice that it is not June, then use the link above for the rest of the year’s details.
ShawnSky Farmer is helping out with some visual content this month. She marches to the beat of a different drummer. Her watercolors usually have obscure meaning, often linked to the astrology of the time, yet leaving it to the viewer to find their own meaning. For the last couple of years, she has been practicing what a friend recently labeled, ‘automatic painting’. The painting reveals itself in the watercolors without a plan, except for the intuitive hits of which colors to start with. This is similar to what she does with her Aura/Soul Paintings.
What she told me about the recent painting, titled “Sainte Sirius and Star”: Sirius is the Dog Star located in Canis Major in the heavens. The dog is not named DogStar, because we already know she is a dog, so she is simply Star. Sainte Sirius has a serious demeanor. She and Star seem to be looking out of a hole or tunnel. She painted this while the Sun was in Taurus and had Uranus in Taurus in her mind. And, it’s the Year of the Dog in Chinese Astrology.
Taurus, an Earth and Fixed zodiac sign, has strength in the area of values; however, when over-emphasized, can end up stuck, like a frog in a well, unable to see the landscape, the larger view, the possibilities.
Uranus can be the jarring influencer which forces an opening. Sainte Sirius, somehow has managed to look out of her hole, but has not quite seen the light and the joy. Star and Sainte Sirius are beginning to release sorrow. It is unknown whether the process will be slow and gradual like Taurus or Uranus-ly instantaneous like the flick of a light switch or fluctuating somewhere in between. More art by ShawnSky Farmer.
Wishing you a curious and satisfying June. Peace, Shawn
