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!

In yesterday’s blog, I shared the first pattern based on the Zebra Long Wing Butterflies.
The next step for me (my business side of art) is adapting it for a variety of products and applications.
The Zebra Long Wing pattern would be ideal for textiles: I can imagine a table setting with napkins and runners using a combination of solid colors to accent the pattern. Pillows and chair covers would be a possibility too.
Since I have my own line of bags and a Cafepress shop, I’ve already put together a casual tote bag, a hipster style and a couple of iphone cases. Tomorrow I’ll work on the web pages for these.*
This blog challenge…
is magnifying how time intensive it is to genuinely share my process of observing the delightful creatures, plants, sounds, movements, smells, and changes of light and shadows in nature.
I want to share how what I observe turns into the art and designs that I am compelled to create.
The zebra butterflies are no longer just pretty little winged creatures flying around my garden. They have a story. They have a vibration and I literally feel their colors, the beauty of their patterns, the magnificence of their fluttering flights and their dance of life. My connection to their energy becomes the muse, and once this is engaged, I am in the flow. I become a part of the ever expanding story of the colors, the butterflies, the cocoon, the bamboo, the raindrops and the art. I am in the dance and it is pure joy.

Today’s my birthday and usually it’s just another day, but this year, I’m happier, healthier and more focused than ever. I started my day singing in the shower and thinking of my Mom and how, many (many) years ago she was giving birth to her first child and of course that set off a bunch of favorite childhood memories. And that made me smile and reminded me of something that I’d most like to share.

I’ve learned that my attitude is everything. I can choose how I feel at any moment and when I choose to see the positive aspect of ANY situation, person, place… my overall experience is more balanced. There is always something that I can do that makes me feel better 🙂 and most importantly… I’m the only one that chooses how I react so, today I chose to be empowered and happy! And today, I’m wishing everyone a better feeling day no matter what issues and challenges you may have. At the very least, pet your cat (or dog), listen to/sing your favorite song, WOW…Just as I wrote this, my daughter gifted me with two Fleet Foxes albums! Listening now …
