The Lovers

Titania and Oberon, the Fairy Lovers unite, and Spring blossoms with their passion.


Venus meets Mars in Aries…

nvr01goldenyellowwing2017tinyThe Cosmic Lovers  join in celestial embrace in the Heavens, interlocking flames like two Dragons in love while kissing in the sky; their wings becoming one in their moment of passion.        dragonkisses                 The Heavens alight, we traverse the milky snows of Embolic,  electric with the proximity of Uranus, the cosmic lovers opening our wings with hope into Aquarian skies.

From the Celestial Hearts series, the two images above are both digitally manipulated photographs of paintings and available to order. The Golden Wing painting is 40 by 96 inches and is a duet composed of two  canvasses.


Venus on Fire in the Golden Lake

A new painting is flowing like music, as if pouring out of my hands and my heart. It is like a golden lake. A work in progress, soft coral clouds form a sky on the canvas, painted with layers of paint mixed in thin washes of time.Dull gold gleams as a base somewhere  beneath the reds and creams. Placed there about ten years ago, like time trapped on canvas and preserved, glazes hold floating fragments of gold. Small fires and soft explosions are caught there forever like old loves that continue to smoulder; their beauty never dies, gold in our hearts. Venus is now fully in Chiron’s embrace. I feel them mingled together… the wise teacher and healer and the Goddess of beauty are meeting in the last sign  of Pisces, the fully opened heart, yet they are restricted in their expression and flow by a square from Saturn. Love and compassion merge in their embrace like a joyous lake inviting us to swim in its magical waters healing our collective heart through gentleness. The square to Saturn in Sagittarius enables us now with the concerted effort to speak out, for our beliefs and collective truth – to have heart, the message of Venus in embrace with Chiron and in the realm of Neptune – the message of love.abstrctfirelake3

Clouds of bright gold leaf are forming in the foreground. I see the changes coming in this beautiful inner sky that is unfolding before me and can manipulate them into what I wish to create – into a future  reflection, my own inner sky.  The canvas has been waiting for its completion patiently for years.Now marked by layers of time, a patina is giving its own gift of depth into the background that makes the foreground sing.

There is a certain degree of possession in painting… I must admit it. It cannot be denied, and is true of most art. The artist can become possessed; obsessed completely by his Muse. Once experienced, the artist seeks the same communion, hungering for the presence  of the Muse, wanting to be once again hers, taken over, like an instrument. Once kissed fully on the lips by the Muse when she comes to him or her, the artist, singer or dancer is never the same. A divine elixir has been tasted. The desire for that sweet essence can become so keen and so subtly invasive that it takes over the human heart with a deep love and yearning. Perhaps this is the secret truth behind the passion of the artist…

the  seduction of his Muse.


Heart Song

The Moon and Jupiter are kissing in the sky in Libra, ruled by Venus the Goddess of Love. Uranus the Electric Planet opposes the two so we can expect some wild and crazy love, with Mars in Pisces. Water needs to flow, and this is powerful watery emotion – use it wisely. There is a Grand Cross in the heavens. Become fluid, embrace the flow. Make art, dance and sing. Singing lets the love flow and you can share it, so the world becomes a better place… Keep the faith, sing your heart’s song, and share the love…

Black Spring

Persephone is still in darkness, here…  in the North. Our bodies and hearts yearn for her and we pray for her emergence…FloraJoblcklasttinyStruggling to break through into the light, she is surrounded by flowers and tendrils and roots, coming alive all around her. She breathes love and fire  into the black earth, incubating life with her sighs and  her breath.

Equinox

TashaGoddessessmallestBooktinyA point of balance between the worlds, day and night and spring and fall; Aries and Libra. Venus conjunct Neptune makes a lovely fog and mist that can be inspiring if we can open to its magic. The Sun enters Aries today and the Earth starts her new year cloaked in these beautiful mists. Idealism is flowing outwards with Neptune in our loving hearts and this is the perfect  moment to stop. Set intentions for the next six months when we will real what we now slowly prepare to sow in the coming spring.The sacred Heart appears as a vision for our inspiration at this time. We can create this utopia in ourselves now if we can only  surrender to this inspiration, and meditate, poised there like butterflies harvesting nectar.  Following our own bliss, we can start gestation, birthing  what we can now dream into being with Venus’s love and the wisdom and healing power of Chiron, poised parallel to  Neptune. Saturn, Venus and Jupiter  now form a T square that when harnessed can create powerful results with focused intent through ritual and magic  Coupled with Saturn’s trine to the Aries Sun, fire signs will once again  be taking focused action. Early Libra and Aries are now about to be transformed by the coming eclipse at 4 degrees Libra, opening a portal to  a new world opening just around the corner as Mercury enters Aries, when we can initiate a new cycle of thought and communication with awakened mind and fresh perspective. .

Into the Mystic

I am feeling the flow of Pisces love…Venus meets Neptune. My heart glows with the magic of their heavenly embrace, so sweet and so rare… I swoon receptive. Venus pours down her love like a baptism and I can only surrender…opening my heart and I ask her blessing that she may pour her love down upon me… rain down her love  with mercy upon all who ache for her  tenderness… and thirst for her touch. MadonnaraiinbowheartinyLoving touch will heal all wounds now as the gates open, and the  Goddess of love connects us all to our own inner infinite sea. We can go into the Mystic… Pisces welcomes all of us with the invitation to merge into the ocean of infinite love.https://www.reverbnation.com/natashavon


The Rainbow Angel

RainbowangeltinywebA new palette is bursting through in my new work… and the Angel of the Rainbow appears …Her heart is suspended, exposed with spreading wings, inviting us to believe in miracles  like a rainbow after the storm… A digital psychedelic icon; a messenger of love and hope in a fast changing world, her radiant beauty expands my perception, breaking through with rainbows of light.


Creative Dreaming

DreameryellowwidedarktinySwansDreamingsmYesterday was a double day, a day of two ones, the number eleven… a leap year day that will not return for another six years, or is it seven ? We have been gifted with a few days of gentler aspects in this tension filled sky. Pisces softness is fuzzing the edges of our Sun; two fish swimming in different directions. Neptune rules the skies now. In his own sign, surrounded by Chiron, Ceres and the South Node of the Moon as he joins the Sun, he infuses the sky with his watery power and a soft blue turquoise haze falls upon us all… We  see  only what we want to see… Swept into our  inner wonderlands, what better to do than dream… and birth new realities that we desire ?

Pisces rules dreams, illusions, sorrows and selfless love. Our vulnerabilities are being exposed, and with Mars in Scorpio for a lengthy few months as he retrogrades, secrets are being released. Chiron both opens deep wounds and heals them. We can pray now for our own inner wounds to be healed, along with deep healing  for our collective soul while Ceres, the Mother Goddess sings to us of universal love in this twelfth sign and last sign, the sign of universal consciousness… and  the subconscious world. Pisces is the completion of a cycle and merging with the Divine.Dreameryellowcropsm.jpg

This is a time for creative dreaming, visualization and prayer…  We can imagine, visualize and dream our new realities into being as this cosmic door opens to welcome us. Edges will  blur and new dimensions and worlds we create can welcome us if  we can surrender and ask this spirit of selflessness and softness to penetrate our opening hearts.


METATRON; A Jacket for an Angel

JctBackMetatronFAlLLEN, that is… let me make that very clear…

I painted the jacket entirely in one long day that quickly turned into night … I couldn’t stop until it was finished, and kept going, adding the details, until  subtle WiINGS were flying together. Then,I painted the SUN, the SOLAR Disc,imbuing it with  words of love as if meant for a Modern OSIRUS to walk the city streets, whole again, risen from the dead. I painted in a flow – as if under a spell for hours. Time had vanished. I hung it up to see it from the back. Now I stepped back, turned, and looked… Voices began to sing around me . A humming filled the air. As I watched, the wings began to grow…Invisible hands caressed me.My heart jumped when I saw it. The wings kept growing, spreading into the air The room became dark, and the wings glowed a violet hue as if under a soft black light . Everything glowed. I knew it had been painted for an Angel…The jacket moved, and a form began to fill it, growing with a density, as if the force of many winds, and full of sky, it took the shape of a man, standing suspended in the air before me… He slowly turned towards me. Wearing nothing but  my jacket and a pair of soft, laced up black buckskin pants laced low on his lean hips…His body rippled with sleek muscle and violet fire. Our eyes met.I knew what he was instantly…
