Capricorn 13° (January 4)
We woke up today and worked on some notes for the collection:
We’ve had a chance to sit with Carolina’s submissions and your notes on them and get something of handle on these ourselves. First off, and not surprisingly, we three are in general agreement, as initial responses falling from our mouths matched your thoughts and feels in emails to us and in your synopses of the broader feedback you’ve already given Carolina. Below are some initial responses per the signs she’s presented, bearing in mind that the first three were more fully realized. On that note, foremost, we are in complete agreement that the vectorized perfection of the more fully realized submissions could use some walking back to varying degrees. We think that we should more fully flesh out our collective responses before getting back to Carolina after we have all three sat together on Monday morning so to galvanize our thoughts and visions here and to allow any further ideas to occur to us over the next two days.
Overarching thoughts: With focus mainly on the large pendant as the starting point for both pieces: Yes we want a little to a lot less perfection. More Matisse less Deco. Less symmetrical in some places. More mystery, drawing the viewer in. “What is that you’re wearing?” Inviting conversation. Looking closer for discover, getting a little lost inside. More “living” pieces. More organic which suits the pendant shape. We have more perfect symbols from Giulia on the back of the big pieces for contrast. A little more esoteric and elemental. The main elements given Carolina i.e. the sign symbol crab, scales, lion, virgin, etc. should not necessarily be the single most prominent. That’s the way everbody does it. It might work better and be necessary to do on the small pendant, but not on the large one which we still think should feel most like a landscape to suggest the “estate” of the sign as opposed to being an obvious take on the recognizable main symbol.
Cancer: The moon needs to be a crescent as that is the way it is symbolized—it speaks to the element of becoming and waxing and waning but also to the dark side of it (which is very Cancerian). Especially if we have a round pearl. The crab might be too prominent rather than living somewhere within the landscape, where there is more “balanced” composition of elements There are too few elements (3) and we see from our notes (and what you sent Carolina) that we did have the “ark” and the “fountain” and “the river” in addition to the pearl, crab, moon. Overall too symmetrical. As in general notes above, crab is too dominant maybe. In order to see that it is a pearl you really need the oyster/mussel/bivalve shell (although there will be a little “story” narrative of the pendant that is written and included with it in the packaging). That said Cancer is fresh water not salt water thus the river not the ocean. Maybe since the oyster shell is wavy, winding in shape it could also suggest a river? Something to consider.
So after some working on collection notes, we went for a bit of a walkabout, at least I think we did. I can’t really remember. It has not been dry January for me despite best intentions. No, that is a lie. I had no intentions on even having a dry January. In fact I’d never heard of the concept. So we went to the butcher and got ourselves a lovely steak which tasted rather livery in the end, which we simply paired with some gem lettuce. We had an appointment before hand with a client which we conducted in the salon. It was a very full day and we have to do all our packing in the morning to get ready to leave. I think the check in is around two-thirty.
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
