4 Gemini 17 to 17 Gemini 8

The Mansion of the Sky

The Mansion of Artistic Freedom


The Sky overhead is the canvas of the winds, Zephyrus, Boreas, Notos, and Euros, On it they paint the brilliant oranges, reds and golds of sunrises and sunsets, the silver ghostly fogs, the bright whites and the angry grays of the clouds, the blues of summer, the blacks of night, and the pale greens of the reflected oceans. The colors of the sky color our lives and emotions. We are happy in sunshine of blue skies, a bit sad as the reds and scarlets of sunset fade, and a bit worried as the black night covers us before the moon appears.

Those born in the Mansion of the Sky are the artist of this world. They paint the colors and patterns of our lives. They are the painters, the sculptors, carvers, woodworkers, modelers, and artists of all kinds. These are the creative of the world that work in tangible visible arts. They seek to make the world more beautiful through their creativity. Often their art is just for its own sake.

When the moon is in the Mansion of the Sky, join the winds and get out your canvas, whatever it is. You may be a baker or cook, and your kitchen is your studio. Make an artful dinner. You may not be a good painter, but today is a day to paint for yourself and your spirit. Get some modeling clay and make a bear. Carve a bird, draw a picture with you child. Today is a day of art and creation. Whatever you make, make for yourself and those you love. Art is good for the soul, and today is when the energy is right.

While the moon is in the Mansion of the Sky, it is time of expression and creativity which has always been essential to our humanity. Humans have always used art to express ourselves. From early times of petroglyphs, cave paintings, and ancient sculptures, our imagination has always been a part of our world, and we should value it with our own artistic expressions As the moon transits the Mansion of the Sky, join humanity in painting your dreams on your canvas as the winds paint theirs on the canvas of the sky.

The Angel of the Twelfth Mansion, according to Cornelius Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Book Three, Chapter Twenty Four, is Dirachiel.

Call upon this angel when you just need a bit of inspiration for your art.

The crystal of the Mansion of the Sky is Amethyst. Pure amethyst is the color of creativity. As the world begins to cycle through a time of renewal once again, creating the means for the rapid growth of the new spring, we too prepare for new creations by allowing a quiet time of reflection and insight. Amethyst rays are particularly helpful in artistic endeavors in which new, original results need to be created using the tools and methods of previous times. Amethyst-colored crystals include the Artist’s Stone, the Composer’s Stone, the Inventor’s Stone, the Poet’s Stone, and the Painter’s Stone. They bring the natural power of creativity to us. They help us visualize, create, and invent. They stimulate our creativity.
