In my ongoing effort to organize my spaces and work flow, I’ve been reviewing and reorganizing thousands of files. In this process I re-discovered my Flower of Life Astrology Designs and was instantly inspired to revive this particular collection based on two main features: 1. All of the designs were created with the intention to share the positive aspects of their respective astrological sign which is layered over and within the powerful pattern of the ancient Flower of Life. 2. Millions of people are interested in the astrological interpretations and insights of their astrological birth alignments so, I’ll be sharing info & insights from my favorite astrologers throughout the year.
That said, I would like to not only re-introduce the Flower of Life Astrology Designs on this first day of Spring in my birth sign of Aries, I would also like to announce…
On April 12th (which just happens to be my birthday) I’ll be giving away not one, but two ARIES Flower of Life designs, one is on a Travel Mug and one is on a Tote Bag.
These are both from my new Society6 shop – in case you absolutely can not wait for the Giveaway Drawing or you just want to see all of the designs and dozens of great products.
You can ENTER THE GIVEAWAY RIGHT NOW ON THIS PAGE.
I’ll be sharing more about the positive aspects of each sign in future blog posts, but for now I just wanted to tell you about the GIVEAWAYS!
*There will be GIVEAWAY PRODUCTS that feature designs from all TWELVE SIGNS and once you ENTER your name/email will be included in every drawing!
This PISCES Flower of Life Astrology Design along with eleven more Signs of the Zodiac are now available on 20 different products in Debra’s Society6 Shop.
PISCES – February 19 – March 20
What’s Your Sign used to be a prelude to, or an actual pickup line. Maybe it still is, but at my age, I’d probably answer that I’m a triple Aries which, if you are familiar with the basic traits of the different signs, would immediately indicate that you should leave now or be forever entranced, or tormented, depending upon your own planetary alignments.
from Google search:
The most compatible signs with Pisces are generally considered to be Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn. The least compatible signs with Pisces are generally considered to be Gemini and Sagittarius.
According to a very well-worn astrology book that has been in my library since the early1980’s, Pisceans are exceptionally intuitive, among the kindest and most compassionate people in the Zodiac. They are true humanitarians, are often artistic, and they have a natural aptitude for psychic communication.The information continues to thoroughly describe aspects of the Pisces personality and traits as they interact with each of the twelve houses of the zodiac.
I’ve always been interested in astrology and to me it is yet another aspect of the great wonders of nature. The spectacular and infinite space, stars, sun, moon, planets, galaxies and black ‘wholes’ surrounding our planet often represent vast unknown, mysterious other worlds, and just as easily, can be considered as an extension of the energetic waves of our entire universe.
I’ve intentionally used the ancient Flower of Life pattern as a grounding and empowering base for each of the twelve astrology signs. Each individual sign has also been created by consciously aligning with the major known aspects of its positive strengths and attributes.
My intention in creating these designs is twofold. First I would like you to enjoy their vibrant colors and patterns and second, if you choose, your Flower of Life Astrology Design can be used as a daily meditation mandala to assist you with staying focused on what is wanted in your life.
Watch for my next post featuring ARIES…
Hmmn, maybe I should have a guest writer for this one!

I’m in the process of rebranding my handbag business and all of the messages I am receiving reaffirm that my childhood passions for gardening, hiking, exploring, beeing in nature were the original blueprint for the story of who I am. Along the way, sacred geometry and Flower of Life joined my list of major inspirational alignments. The symbolic and energetic vibrations of Flower of Life and all of its variations have become the basis for many of my paintings, projects, and designs over the past decade, which is especially significant in light of the challenging background story of bankruptcy and foreclosure that I was living during that time. The energy and alignment that I experience while creating art and designs using the underlying grid that represents the Flower of Life and all of its power is phenomenal.
My close friends and family knew the background story and as the foreclosure process signaled that is was time to move on they also understood why I chose to return to my childhood home town of Narrowsburg, NY. It was time to review the full circle, time to help my only sister with the care of our 88 year old mother. Mom had a severe stroke in 2005, is paralyzed on one side of her body and needs full-time assistance for all the basic daily grooming and feeding activities that most of us go through on auto pilot. I now also realize from conversations and the posts of many Facebook friends that we are among so many others taking care of aging parents and, as much as possible, we are maintaining and expanding our own stories along the way.
One of the ways I maintain an optimistic perspective is to begin my day with great coffee, my two favorite inspirational daily emails (Thoughts from The Universe and Abraham’s Daily Quote). If that isn’t enough to get my energy and attitude in the flow, because some mornings just need an extra dose of positive energy – I’ll listen to a short meditation or watch an inspirational video.
Today I ‘listened’ to the messages that, not surprisingly, came through a link in an email, and followed one to the video on this post. I’ve been aligned with the work of Esther and Jerry Hicks/Abraham for many years and as I allow more of what feels right to me, I understand, to the point of tears of joy, why nature is such an inspiring, vital part of who I am and what I can share.
Please share your thoughts on this in the comments below and share this post with your friends (share buttons below).
Enjoy the video and NATURE!
The Universe Always Provides Signs. Pay Attention
a YouTube Video of Esther Hicks/Abraham that reminded me of the power of my connections to nature:
As long as I’m still breathing, I’m here to learn. Every day, something old is new again or more specifically, every day I see the connections and alignments of past experiences as they integrate into my present story of life. I’m constantly assessing experiences to learn how the energy of thoughts and actions affect life situations. I consider myself a life-long student and prefer to focus on what I do want as opposed to what I don’t want.
I’m always eager to learn more about the hows and whys of bee-ing*.
Last year, I returned to a painting/design style that has always intrigued me and began creating art and designs that incorporated geometric shapes of nature. (the hexagonal shape of the honeycomb in particular). The Flower of Life is a design that is found in many cultures throughout the ages. It embodies all sacred geometretic shapes and is considered the visual representation of source energy. All alignments, connections, shapes, sounds colors, tastes, feelings, sights, experiences are physical reflections of source energy – all emanating from a divine source as represented by the Flower of Life. You can read more about this at: The Ancient Flower of Life by Drunvalo Melchezidek,
or watch this Youtube video by Spirit Science which presents the information in a much more succinct and entertaining format.
(*Bees have been a recurring and significant part of my life experience and they are a major element of life on planet earth – far beyond the pollination of all of our foods, but that information will be shared soon. Suffice to say, the tiny winged creatures represent the physical manifestation of a search engine beyond Google’s wildest dreams!).

It’s a long story for another post, or may be better to let it go and just move forward, but…
I’m back in the handbag design business and to celebrate I’ve just finished the first new TRIO COLLECTIONS.
Peacock Feathers (which is an updated version of last year’s top selling design), Aquarius Blues – a design that incorporates one of my Flower of Life astrology patterns (I plan to create a TRIO Collection for all 12 astrology signs), and Golden Fractals, a reinvented pattern that is based on a detail of the leaves of the Oleander plant.
Each TRIO includes a large, casual (beach) tote bag, matching flip flops and a matching leather wrist clutch. The regular retail value of these 3 items would be $204. Place your order by April 22, 2013 for delivery by Mother’s Day, May 12th and pay only $129 for all three products, PLUS, shipping is included for addresses within the continental USA.
All products are created to order and I have a guarantee on all of my work. It’s on each product page.
Place your order today or before April 22nd if it’s for a Mother’s Day Gift. If you have any questions, call or email me. My contact info is on each page or HERE.
Please leave a comment to let me know your favorite design in the introductory TRIO COLLECTIONS. .
UPDATE: Deadline to order for Mother’s Day was April 22nd, but you can always purchase a
GIFT CERTIFICATE and she can choose her favorite colors and design.
I’m very excited to see that Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 is one of my absolute favorites – EMERALD!
I have designs in dozens and dozens of shades and hues of green, because to me, Green is the color that represents the ultimate beauty, power and magic of nature and, if you are familiar with any of my work, you already know that 99% of my art and designs are based on nature 🙂
Green is also the color of the heart chakra, one of the primary energy centers of every human body. According to the information that I’ve been studying on the Flower of Life, the heart chakra is the major energy element responsible for the shift in consciousness that our world is already engaged in. The world is not ending, it is expanding and as the collective consciousness embraces more and more of the energy-thoughts-beliefs of a heart-based, community oriented society, our world will evolve and become the physical representation of these beliefs. If you’re interested in learning more about this shift in consciousness I recommend the following resources:

I’ve been thoroughly entranced with Flower of Life throughout this year and when I think back, this has been with me forever. Flower of Life is the ultimate representation of the powerful, core elements of life.
When you can truly know the visible and underlying structures of our universe, Flower of Life is the basis of source energy that connects every thing we can see and imagine: tangible physical things, thoughts, relationships, events. Flower of Life is smaller than the smallest known element and is capable of expanding into entire universes – to infinity and beyond. Every structure of sacred geometry can be found by connecting points within the Flower of Life. This is my current favorite aspect of it. I anticipate a long and progressive relationship with this powerful energy and know it has many more secrets to share. It is a process of learning, accepting and cultivating the properties that are aligned with the work I love and using the energy of Flower of Life to create and share life stories. It connects every thing and every one.
We are only limited by our beliefs. Imagination and focus are key elements to be all we desire. Our ultimate, true power lies within our hearts and our thoughts. I’ve had FOCUS as my personal keyword for several years. It continues to challenge and remind me to stay on the path that is the most joyful and inspiring one for the highest good of all.
I have so much in my head as I write this, but want to keep these posts somewhat focused and hopefully interesting. Your comments are always welcomed especially because our relationships are vital to the expansion of who we are all becoming.
And… of course I have new Flower of Life designs to share 🙂

Every astrology design in my Flower of Life Sacred Geometry collection has been created as a meditation on that particular sign.
I set an intention to create images that would share the highest and most inspirational vibration of each sign’s planetary aspects, known characteristics and the essence of its element (earth, fire, air or water).
The colors and patterns of each sign developed organically as I tuned into the energy that flowed through my muse. My eyes, hands and photoshop were merely tools expressing and translating the vibratory meanings that downloaded as the images you can see .
I also intended that these images could be used as visual meditation tools to amplify the positive aspects of an individual’s astrological alignments and in particular, to set specific, personal intentions that will activate the energy of the desired outcome every time he or she touches, or acknowledges, that intention through visual and emotional alignment.
