We have arrived at the tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn, which is a cardinal earth sign and ruled by Saturn.

Capricorn’s symbol, with the upper body of a mountain goat and the lower body and tail of a fish, is based on Enki the Sumerian primordial god of wisdom and waters. Enki was the god of intelligence (literally “ear”), creation, crafts, magic and seawater.  The mountain goat part of the symbol represents ambition, intelligence, curiosity and the ability to thrive in inhospitable environments while the fish represents passion, spirituality, intuition, and connection with the soul.

Taurus: earth sign, fixed, ruled by Venus.

The glyph of Taurus represents the circle of the spirit crowned by the crescent of the soul. I chose to draw my imagery from the Egyptian cow goddess, Hathor, which is commonly associated with Taurus. She is named “Queen of the night” and adorned with moon flowers.

I’ve been submersed in the world of astrology over the last few months, and have created the twelve zodiac signs as a sort of compendium. I’ll be posting all twelve over the next few days starting with Aries, the first sign of the zodiac ushering in the spring. The glyph representing Aries symbolizes the crescent of consciousness joining the scepter of the sun and is based on the Chrysomallus, the flying ram which provided the Golden Fleece.

Each of my compositions began with a triangle representing the four elemental signs: Earth, Water, Air and Fire (Aries being an upright triangle representing Fire).

All but three zodiac paintings have sold. To view these and a selection of limited edition prints visit my online store: www.animaanimus.org.

Evolution occurs, at times, through camouflage. If, as a species, a moth does not blend in with it’s environment it becomes food for it’s prey. Human evolution must advance so the individuals who stand out survive and evolve. They will not be devoured.
