It is a Full Moon , and I must keep working . Morning is already spilling sun all over my small world . Pegasus , the horse who could fly , and flew to the Heavens is taking form in my studio . Marble dust all over ,plaster and gesso in the air .
As above , so below …. I am shaping a heavenly creature onto a very large wooden birch panel with plaster and gesso , and today I am creating the last details on her face and Wings . I feel compelled to finish the work as much as I can today to seal in the power of this intense and potentl Aquarius Full Moon .
An elegant , strong , sensitive white and copper maned horse , this is perhaps a mare – female Pegasus . White , and pure ,like water and snow , she glows with ivory and soft copper laid down under layers of white plaster and ground marble . . . snow like . She is being completed with this Full Moon in Aquarius ; the Water Bearer bringing a peace and humanitarian vision to the world .I have sculpted her as a bas relief , building up layers of flesh , exhausting myself building up muscle and mane as I worked the plaster over her curves .
Almost complete , her mane flows . She has an elegant abstraction , as was requested , and wonderful strength and movement emanate from her . Power and grace are flowing from her now . Finally … as I continue to strive , attempting daily to capture the essence of her equine beauty .
A mare is said to have great patience , and greater fecundity . Like the Moon . The Mongolian nomads revere a mare as the Mother of the World , and associate this Cosmic Mare with the Moon . East Africans compare a beautiful woman to a beautiful mare , as a compliment .
Ceres the Earth Goddess is conjunct the Sun and Mercury in the sign of the Lion … the Cosmic Mother on ecstasy … with a passionate heart full of love … a fiery and passionate Quan Yin ….
Perhaps if I complete my Pegasus today , she will also speak ,golden like Ceres , in the language of the Sun , with a full heart of love … like the Lion . Perhaps she will reflect the light of Regulus from the Lion’s heart , in the language of the Sun, tinged with tones of love .
I shall paint or sculpt the Moon in today , to capture it and its’ power , and seal it into my work . And sign it with a symbol and a poem to wish peace upon her new home and her mistress , who will soon come to claim this magical mare .An incantation and prayer will be written into the plaster I place today .
My Lady Horse , Pegasus will bless and grace her life , bringing her a gift every time she looks at her …. a silent song of love and the secret to the art of flight .
