Astrological Inkblot Analysis

Filed in SUN SIGNS

Ink blot art I was once made to do an inkblot test at school.  The teacher, i swear, was drunk. A bottle of Gordons Gin on the test and a copy of a book with a title something like “Inkblot Testing For Idiots” is not a good combo. None of my inkblot interps fitted her diagnostic manual. I became truculent. Someone less drunk was called in to referee. The inkblot testing session was cancelled. But still, I love the idea of it.

So, citing your sign, what do you think this image is all about? I think it will be best if you don’t peek at previous answers and then it will be more of a scientific (lol) survey of how the different signs, elements or modalities see the blot thingies…

They were – of course – invented by a Scorpio: Hermann Rorschach

Go For It – What is this thing?

I think it’s Batman doing ballet from behind, trying to go en pointe but he’s got tentacles. However, I think it’s de rigeur to say everything reminds you of a phallus, no?

At first glance a butterfly, second glance two birds pressed together, third glance a black bat…which then got me thinking about that poem from Tennyson ‘Come into the garden Maud, for the black bat….’

Very symbolic

Actually Scorpalicious, maybe it’s lack of water?
Pretty sure clouds are water droplets or ice crystals.
Which would make sense – The only water element in my chart is Scorpio in Saturn.

Libra Sun – It’s a fruit bat, and I’m probably inclined to that conclusion because there’s a bat colony down the road, stinks to high heaven, and thousands of the buggers fly overhead at dusk.

Twin black birds colliding at the heart. Or maybe joined at the heart. This painting makes me feel melancholy, sad but not depressed.

I can’t decide. This morning I had a quick squiz and thought a butterfly with its knickers in a twist, but now I’m seeing duelling black peacocks or are they scrub turkeys.

Gem sun/ pisces rising/ cap moon:
spent the day&nite flying & thinking how close am to Sat-Ura. Nine hr flight went by inviting both holding a scissor together, to cut the stale cords to past. So my reading: it is the moment before Phoenix was rising thru ash flexing wings – hence burnt color

I see two little vultures peeking up over space guns, or a pelvic bone I am not sure. Regardless, I assume it was a very chic revolution, as I am digging the colour palate. All revolutions should be chic.

I immediately focused on the background & thought of pink/purple/orange clouds at dusk (which I have always loved).

Taurus Sun & Rising, Capricorn Moon.

No idea why someone so Earthy would be so fascinated by clouds!

First impression: two black swans paddling towards each other on a sunset lit lake, leaving water-ripple trails in their wake.

And then I saw a squashed, black heart (hahaha … can someone say love-bitter?!), followed by a pelvis.

I see paint on canvas. I see an asymmetric, irregular area of Iron Black pigment in the center, it is mostly opaque except for some transparency around the edges and down to the lower left corner. That black area is surrounded and intermixed with some transparent washes of some lovely (and expensive) Cobalt Violet. A beautiful work, postmodernist painting is all about the flatness.

Umber seems a little weak, not enough tinting power to make that black. I was going to call it Mars Black but I thought people would draw astrological inferences from Mars, when it’s just a newer name for Iron Black. I use Mars Black a lot since it’s one of the few warm blacks, most are cold. Yeah, I am a weirdo about black pigments. It was my teacher’s specialty, I used to joke that she got more range from black than I did out of the whole color palette. So after years of her instruction, now I can spot… Read more »
