Mandalas, usually circular in shape, are diagrams of ordered elements understood to represent a totality, whether it's the Universe or the Self in Jungian psychology. Drawing them can help restore such order and integration to our inner life (as well as create an attractive image).
I've certainly enjoyed making these astrology illustrations and would like to share them with you. You can either pick some to colour in or create your own. I'll bring papers, the printed colouring sheets, compass, coloured pencils and some pens but feel free to bring your own materials (just please stick to dry media; no paints).
This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in astrology, no previous knowledge needed. It has several aims:
* spend some relaxing time with a friendly group while creating
* learn/brush up on some important astrology concepts (I will explain the meaning of the drawings as you work) in a fun, imaginative way
* by engaging with these charts hands-on you will get to know their building blocks and internal relationships much more intimately then just listening to a talk
So far I have pictures of the following: The Zodiac (signs and rulership), Phases of the Moon, Astrological Aspects, Astrological Houses and The Seven Planetary Spheres
We will meet at Cherry Reds and have the Map Room to ourselves so it should be fairly peaceful. The room is upstairs, next to the bar. There will be an Astrology meetup sign on the door.
