How to find art you love. Elemental signs EARTH & FIRE
Welcome back to part 2 of my favorite topic! How do we find art we love? Art has this ability to affect us in amazing ways. To transport us, to trigger memories, to push us forward. If you don't have any art in your life doing that for you yet, you need to read on! I've spent my life creating and appreciating art. Whenever someone struggles with this, I struggle to help them! One powerful way I've discovered is to use your Elemental sign. We all fall into one of 4 signs, Air, Water, Earth, or Fire. Using these elements as a guide for making art choices can be crazy impactful. You just have to try it. This week I dive into Earth and Fire. If you missed the Intro, you can find it here. If you missed Air and Water, you can find them here. Reading all the signs is a good idea because we can learn so much about our spouse, partner, children, parents, best friends, by learning about their signs too.
Earth Capricorn - Dec 22 - Jan 19 Taurus - April 20 - May 20 Virgo - Aug 23 - Sept 22
Earth signs have heightened senses. They are tactile and love to use their hands. They get excited about different materials and textures. If there was one sign that likes layers and possibly clutter it is Earth signs. More is more with them. They do love the outdoors, but are intrigued by images with depth, patterns, and texture as opposed to a big clear sky.
Adding plants is a great idea for Earth signs. Yes because plants are natural and "of the earth", but also because of the texture, life, and dimension they bring to your space. No shock that Earth tones will be very soothing, as well as black & white. Earth signs won't get as much pleasure from crazy loud colors or neon or anything artificial. Look for different materials. Woven baskets, woven blankets, textured pillows, metal frames or art all would be great layered into an Earth home.
Fire Aries - March 21 - April 19 Leo - July 23 - Aug 22 Sagittarius - Nov 22- Dec 21
Last but definitely not least is Fire. Fire signs are spontaneous, inspired, outgoing, visionary. They get bursts of enthusiasm, excitement, and passion. You hunt for things that light you up so keep that in mind when choosing art. Most fire signs do not like anything too dark. They love bright, energetic images. Fire signs tend to gravitate toward imagery with people. People don't have to be the focal point, but just having the human element in art automatically gives it more energy, which Fire signs like.
With home decorating Fire signs like color. Bursts of color will feel good. Unique, cool uses of color. Fire signs will be the ones to appreciate Pop Art, Neon, cool light fixtures. Fire signs can be bold and feel really good about it. Fire signs are usually comfortable in the spotlight so explaining their "crazy" choices with some bold wallpaper or painting the ceiling will actually be fun for them.
Can you see how helpful this knowledge can be in choosing art, decor, and creating your home??? If you embrace this and own it, and make choices with it in mind, I think you will be amazed at how much success you have in creating a home that you freakin love. Pick one spot in your home that you spend time. The bathroom? Where you get ready for the day. I love to have art that speaks to me there to set the tone for my day. Or maybe the living room where you read and play with your kids. Pick a spot where you can have a moment with art each day, and choose an image that really speaks to you. Give it a try! What do you have to loose? Not much. And what you have to gain is a powerful moment each day that can stick with you.
