Astrological Art
So... one day I was painting an abstract piece... and realized that what I was actually painting was my Neptune in Sagittarius. Which was the furthest planet out from the Sun when I was born (due to Pluto´s highly eliptical orbit) but also the furthest planet around the Zodiac if one takes Aries as the start. It occurred to me, (as is the case with Neptunian inspiration... what a great starting point!) that I should paint ever planet in my chart in reverse order, working clockwise back around the Zodiac. I tried to pick auspicious days for each planet, (solar return for the Sun... Mars return for Mars...etc..) which was difficult to do with the outer planets, but I tried to find aspects from the Sun to highlight the days I painted each one. Wish I´d dated them as I can´t remember what I electional astrology I chose for each painting. At any rate, it became a deep mystical ritual for myself, which wound up culminating in recording some music to animate the paintings to via AI art generation.
I utilized my teachers colour schema to paint with... basically everyone agrees that Aries is Red, and Leo is Yellow, from there it becomes obvious that Sagittarius is Blue... so the primary colours are all Fire Signs, the Air signs then become the Secondary colours, (Gemini is Orange, Libra is Green, and Aquarius is Purple) while the feminine signs all become the Tertiary colours in between. At any rate, I hope some people enjoy this. I don´t claim to be a good painter, I just find it fun to let my mind go on the canvas.
These paintings do, in a stream of consciousness way, represent how these planets as layers of consciousness affect me.

Neptune in Sagittarius in the Fifth House (or fourth maybe... argh! Still debating house systems... but I feel that Neptune is in my Fifth pretty strongly.)

How did you get into painting, howd you know what to paint, how to make structure, how to give it life?

Saturn in libra amazes me, it´s a maze and I´m amazed? It explains it inexplicably because what´s understood dont need to be explained

My girlfriend at the time was an artist, so she convinced me to give it a shot, despite never having the skill to get out what´s in my head in the detail I would have liked to. But the more abstract surreal stuff is very fun to do.

Yes the abstract shows your connection to your divinity to me

Like you said for me I just envision it in my head and let my hand start moving, I never delved into it fully but I have plans too

Thank you Ra! Yes... that one was more literal.. .as Saturn should be! Saturn and Jupiter are actually a shared background, as they are conjunct in my chart, so the backgrounds were painted together. They look separate though because it´s hard to take pictures of paintings and I processed the colours in the pictures separately, but in person you can see the background of Green Libra flows between them.

Ohh you should rearrange them and make a giant picture out of it, put your fucking natal chart on the wall bro🤯

I can see the full picture forming as I stare, I think you could rearrange it into a bigger piece of art, pretty ambitious right😏

The one at the mid bottomRl stands out the most it feels like your center to me I mean it´s kinda irrelevant but I just kinda wanted to inquiry to your thoughts

It would be hard to notice separated, especially since the picture for Saturn turned out so much darker than the one for Jupiter (how apropos!) But you can see it when they are placed together in sequence on my wall.

Next to it is a weird painting of my whole natal chart... envisioning it as the solar system... in the Zodiac.. so the planets are spaced out...

hmm it would honestly piss you off trying to rearrange that into a bigger piece, also it´d be pretty tenacious to only use those instead of painting more🤔

but the upside of learning that skill is tremendous so it´d make sense to progress your creative sense🤔

my apologies I completely just manifested into your dimension lemme fall back before I end up trying to be your business manager🤣

I did consider photoshoping those paintings into my natal chart painting... which would draw them all into one piece... but the more I think about, the sillier I think it would wind up looking....

Yes I thought this to myself also since there didn´t seem to be much connecting between the pieces

Of course they connect! ALL those damn outer planets oppose ALL my damn inner planets! GRRRR!
