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 Libra.
About The Astrological Sign of Libra
For all of the signs I used their glyph symbol as the tessellated pattern within the mandala. The glyph of Libra represents the scales of justice.
For Libra it is all about balance, justice, and fairness. It’s also about weighing in on all sides to determine how best to move forward. The challenge happens when we get lost in trying to make a decision for fear of making a “wrong” decision and thus failing to do anything. That’s when we remind ourselves that we made it this far, so learn to just trust our judgement and proceed onward…knowing that we can always change our minds down the road.
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and rules the seventh house of relationships. It’s an air element (action, ideas, and motion) and a cardinal quality (pioneering, enterprising).
This mandala’s message to us:
“Find where you are out of balance and use the energy of Libra to restore balance and order. With each area of your life ask yourself ‘am I happier with this in my life?’ If yes, then keep it otherwise change it or get rid of it. We thrive best in a state of peace and harmony.”
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.
