It's so overwhelming right?! How are you supposed to know what imagery you will actually continue to love for years to come? This is a big commitment! You do not want to blow it. And do you ever feel like art can be a language you just don't speak? What is everyone talking about anyway. Oh the deep meaning of it all! I mean, I just want a beautiful image that I connect to in some personal way.
Art at it's best can remind you of the things you love and the places you’ve been or want to go. It can take your mind away like a good book. But how do you know what is right for you? Where do you start?
elemental signs are the secret!
What you need is some direction, right? To learn a bit more about what lights YOU up. Because it won't be the same for everyone. Use this to make powerful decisions choosing art for your home, and don't worry about what others have chosen. This is about you, feeling inspired and uplifted every day. Each one of us falls into one of four elemental signs. Air, Water, Earth, or Fire. In my experience, these elements are crazy impactful. Give it a try. Find your element based on your birthday. Spend a moment looking at the images in your category. Does one or more stir something inside you? This is where you start.
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22), Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18), Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Cancer (June 21 - July 22), Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21), Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19), Taurus (April 20 - May 20), Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Aries (March 21 - April 19), Leo (July 23 - Aug 22), Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Another way of looking at images is to ask yourself what you are needing from art.
What does your instinct lean toward? An Escape, to Daydream, to see the Far Corners of the world, or Energy. Listen to your instinct and choose accordingly. This is where you start.
