In 2012 I created a series of Hyperbolic Tessellation Mandalas for the 12 signs of Astrology. I self-published them into a Mandalas to Color Calendar for 2013: Astrological Signs.
I plan to color all the signs by the end of the year. This week I continue with the sign of Gemini.
About The Astrological Sign of Gemini – ♊
For all of the signs I used their glyph symbol as the tessellated pattern within the mandala. The ♊ of Gemini represents the Twins. When repeated in a circle it created a rather intricate geometric pattern of columns and “bridges”.
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and rules the third house of teaching, literature, siblings, and short journeys. It’s an air element (thoughts, mental arena) and a mutable quality (flexible, go with the flow).
This mandala’s message to us:
“I think therefore I am. What’s on your mind these days? Positive, uplifting thoughts? How we think inside reflects how we view the world outside and also how others view us. Go through the closet of your mind, sweeping out all the stinking-thinking and replace it with self-empowering thoughts. When all else fails, do something that makes you laugh. The brilliant, quick-witted energy of Gemini loves a good laugh.”
About the Mandalas of the Week
Each week I choose one of my existing mandala paintings that wants to be upgraded OR create a new one and post it here. Throughout the week, I paint/draw/color/collage/etc it and post my progress on the Mandala of the Day. I post the upgraded version later in the week.
