The Fixed Star

A notion from antiquity still current in modern astrology where stars appear to have a fixed position within the zodiac while planets wander through the signs.

Feelings, thoughts, sensations come and go but if we look for what never changes we discover the fixed stars of our selves pinned to our inner firmament. As above so below.

The silk was dyed in my indigo vat to a lustrous darkish blue, pleated and smocked with bright golden yellow threads in the shape of a six-pointed star. The points are accented with small sparkling beads in the same colour.

Ready to shine in the usual place on Saturday.

PS I've made a Tinctory page on Facebook here. For the moment it's going to be doubling this blog for those who prefer to follow things there.
