How did the series come about? I plotted and planned the concept and design pretty carefully. I had to honor this historic ritual and universal language and I wanted to do it RIGHT. 🌟So, I did a lot of research. I researched to figure out what type of astrological imagery worked best organically with my style, and what types did not, so I could take what worked and really put my own special spin on it!
I decided against adding calendar dates. Here's why: recently they've been switched up. Did you know this? (It's wacky. Google it. Apparently, the planets moved... or something like that.) Anyway, to each their own, but I identify as the same sign I've been for my entire life and now that the signs have shifted dates, it is confusing. So, once I discovered this change, I squashed the date idea.
I also knew the concept had to feature lots of luscious hand lettering!! So I integrated the most positive personality traits of each sign into the design- also fitting, because they increase the positive vibes and support self confidence & inner joy, and I am ALL FOR THAT!!
Another thing necessary in this series was, they had to have juicy colors in there! I didn't go too crazy trying to stick to the astrological script -- this color for that sign, and so on -- because through my research, I discovered that there are varying opinions of which colors are official for specific signs, and which are not! I guess that shouldn't be a surprise, but I did look into it and, that's the facts, Jack. So, I followed the general colors per sign as closely as felt right to me, and left the rest up to the stars... Creative license!
I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them for you! I'm proud of this series and feel that they're very unique + special, just like you!!
