Art in Astrology

Mystery, Language, Guidance and Influence of the Stars and Planets

Art in astrology takes us on journey through the foundation that runs within cultures, the varied interpretation of language and mystery of the stars, seasonal shifts, and celestial cycles, creating rooted astrological beliefs, where predictions, visions and dreams, shifts in time and space held a place in history.   Artists are asked to submit work exploring and expressing their connection with the universe and astrology. The alignment of planets, moon, sun and stars, predictions and the elements fire, earth, air, and water, and how much is it a part of their lives.
