Symbols and Meaning in Art

Symbols and Meaning in Art
“I saw an angel in the marble, then carved and carved to set her free.” Michelangelo
Allow me to share with you my experiences as an artist and an astrologer. I have been combining astrology and art for many years. Now I am happy to have found RedBubble to showcase my original art pieces for you.
The world has moved on, and in the digital creation arena is where I feel compelled to express myself. From my creator studio in downtown Vancouver, I enjoy expressing myself via the colourful creations I produce.
The language of astrology is created through the symbols and glyphs that are used in astrology charts. These complex shapes and sigils, when skillfully combined, will make sentences which ultimately tell a story.
Your personal astrology chart, and the symbols and patterns they contain, can help you explore the deeper meaning of your life through the symbolic language of astrology.
When the symbols are in your chart, it will be the story of your life. This is exciting isn’t it?
These symbols, or glyphs, convey meaning more than the actual shape. Glyphs have inherent properties that can be used to elevate your understanding of your life, and the world around you.
In your chart the synergy effect is present. Now one plus one equals three, or the sum of the whole is greater than the parts. Powerful.
I use traditional astrological glyphs in my artistic designs to bring them into mainstream consciousness for everyone.
Night Sky Dreams Pattern
We are but a small part of the huge universe. Many galaxies, stars and planets bring the positive energy of the universe to life. This is where life is lived to the full.
The vast dark space between the stars is the negative energy. Between the two opposites of light and dark, or positive and negative, the universal energy is in balance and mathematically adds up to zero.
My new “Night Sky Dreams” pattern is a piece that combines the sign symbols with other well-loved icons of the sky.
The deep purple background symbolizes the night, and the negative, as it contrasts sharply with the brilliant white light of life as shown by the stars.
I avoided black to accent this piece by choice. I interpret purple as a secondary colour that is both rich and mysterious, without the connotation of a darker side of life which a midnight black shade implies.
As an astrologer and artist I love what I do. For those of you who have supported me in the past thank you, and if you have just discover my creations, then welcome.
If you enjoy my work please give me a “like” and follow me, so you know when I post a fresh new creation.
If you want to know more about my process, you can watch my YouTube channel Starzology where I discuss the art or astrology and how you can benefit from knowing a little astrology.
Have a prosperous day,
