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 Aquarius.
About The Astrological Sign of Aquarius
For all of the signs I used their glyph symbol as the tessellated pattern within the mandala.
For Aquarius, it’s all about the greater good, being ahead of its time, and thinking outside the box; it’s about being new and innovative with the altruistic energy of being of benefit to all of humankind.
The glyph for Aquarius “…symbol of the waves of water or electricity expresses the humanitarianism of this future-forward zodiac sign. As a lofty air sign and an enthusiastic fixed sign, Aquarius is the zodiac’s rational-thinking sci-fi brainiac, the sign known for friendliness and eccentricity, but also cool emotional detachment and casual connections.” -from Astrostyle.com
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and rules the eleventh house of friends, and our hopes and dreams.
This mandala’s message to us:
“Time to shake up the status quo, What has worked before and is failing us now, needs to go. If it fails to serve the greater good of all, it needs to go. Now is the time to think outside the box, invent new ways of serving humanity and making this a better place to live…for ALL.“
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.
