Titania and Oberon, the Fairy Lovers unite, and Spring blossoms with their passion.
Category Archives: magic
The 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. 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.
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.
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.
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…
The Cosmic Heart with Doves….new work, recently completed, below.
Persephone is still in darkness, here… in the North. Our bodies and hearts yearn for her and we pray for her emergence…Struggling 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.

A 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. .
