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 Leo.
About The Astrological Sign of Leo
For all of the signs I used their glyph symbol as the tessellated pattern within the mandala. The glyph of Leo represents the beautiful full mane of a lion. The energy of Leo wants to shine and play, it wants to be front and center as if to say “look at me”.
In focusing on this sign, what part of us do we usually hide away and yet it’s a part of us that wants to be out in the open and free? Looking at our birth chart to find where Leo is in our chart can give us a clue as to what that is.
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and rules the fifth house of creativity and children. It’s a fire element (energy) and a fixed quality (stick-to-it-tiveness).
This mandala’s message to us:
“Time to play and be creative. Let go of the inner critic and play, have fun. Take an improv class or a belly dancing class. Listen to your favorite music, learn a musical instrument. Find your Creative Spirit and let it out to play. We know it’s in there.”
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.
