Art is My Medicine ~ Mercury Retrograde Mars in Capricorn Edition

Happy Mercury retrograde season litebeings! This is the first one of the new decade and it happens to coincide with Mars moving into Capricorn. Mercury in Pisces screams art to me and Mars is exalted in the sign of tenacious, go-getting, ambitious Capricorn so I have chosen Georges Seurat, artiste exalted to infinity. This is not really an astrology post, merely an excuse to showcase awesome art. We have not done this for quite some time, so when the muse knocked on my door, I opened it cheerfully! Some readers know Seurat is a favorite of mine. Tonight I am featuring a few landscapes, most of which are less famous but beguiling just the same.

Pointillism is a technique that promotes universality and inclusion. Each dot is unique and precious, contributing to the mystery of all that is.

It’s Your Birthday, Georges Seurat

Welcome to all my new followers! I am very happy you have chosen to read my stories and take interest in my journey. Please feel free to peruse the archives and add your 2 cents in the comments section. I love to hear from readers!

I am very close to writing a little something about the Mystic’s way and the course I completed on Spiritual Emergence(y). The nudges to do so have been less than subtle. But in the meantime, it is damp and dark and dreary here at litebeing’s locale. So why not share some random Seurat? After all it just happens to be his birthday and he is one of the founders of pointillism. He is also among my favorite painters, if not my number one favorite. The fluidity and use of color and texture is exquisite.

Tell me about your favorite painters or your favorite Sag in the comments section.

Regardless of the season and mood you find yourself in, take comfort in the impermanence of all that is not real and in the permanence of what is real ~ love.
