Sun Sign Survey: How Messy Do You Get When You’re Creating?

Filed in SUN SIGNS

messy artists studio

This is the studio of the artist Francis Bacon – the greater the chaos, the greater the art in this case.

How messed up do you get when you’re fully in creative mode?

I don’t mean “create” as in official art – i mean it as in trying to create a new thing…Could be cooking, maybe a novel, new biz…whatevs.

Is your workspace a total tip of empty gatorade bottles, ashtrays, half-drunk bottles of warm Blue Devil Hoochie Juice, smashed up discarded machinery, screechy scrawls of strange ideas and the end of elegant living?

Or can you only create with a clear head, proper clean Qi,  full body and face exfoliation, the right brain-enhancing music playing and the house uncluttered.

I have seen both styles of creativity as well as the hideous results when Anarcha-Genius tries to cohabit or work alongside Zen Genius.

Citing your Sun Sign, which one is your style of creating?

When I create it’s usually in the form of collages, so I usually sit in the floor and spread everything out in a semi-circle around me. So everything within arm’s reach is a clutter, but I don’t affect much outside that radius.

Sun – Aquarius, 3rd House
5th House – Aries

Sun and Moon in Aquarius!! lol….
My Midheaven in Pisces and Gemini Rising… my mother insists my bedroom have a warning: contamination sign…
I’m not dirty (having fourth house in virgo) but I am very messy….. lol always able to organize in a relaxed enviroment, however.

When I am creating.. I like to be organized and have what I need at hand, but I am a Order internal chaos external based. Yang Based yin External.

Saggo Sun and Pisces rising – MESSY BEYOND MEANS OF LIVING! My room is a reck – i’m now redecorating and am throwing stuff out like crazy!! I’ve now got a huge red canvas the size of my wall opposite my bed displaying my Vinyl LP’S and my bed is made, but VERY badly, and i swear with exams next week cleaning is the fartherst thing from my mind! I know i havent been on in ages, but i have been watching just not commenting. School seems to be the main feature in my life next to family/friends. Got LOADS… Read more »

Pisces sun & Leo Rising – CLEAN. Oh, my goodness, I cannot function for a second unless every single thing around me is spotless, & sat at the right angle. I know if someones so much as been in the room ’cause one thing won’t be sitting at a perfect 90 degree on the table. It’s nuts. It could also be super procrastination, & thinking ‘if I’m going to do something else, might as well make it productive’.. but nonetheless. If I REALLY want to get work done, it has to be somewhere where I can’t obsessively interfere with cleaning,… Read more »

Oh gawd…Sun in Sagg..my PhD thesis. My apartment floor, especially my bedroom was covered in books. There was one patch of carpet for my bum! I had to “think” on the floor akin to a child playing with toys. Sitting at a desk was too much like work. For me to get through it, I had to make it fun. But YEARS of mess – a whole pile of exercise books with my handwritten notes – all gleefully tossed out when I finished. What a veritable Mt Everest (meaning the piles of books plus the slog!). I am so glad… Read more »

and yes, obviously I’m dying to know which is your work but you didn’t say so I figure you prefer to remain incognito. There is some great indigenous work here – I am actually WISHING I could see all this seems 100x more interesting than biennale was. This feels a bit more connected to land and place that felt sterile and packaged – almost pharmaceutical. I wonder how long it takes to drive to adelaide…

I am a mise en place sort when it comes to any type of project, creative or not. I am impatient and easily frustrated when I can’t find things, so it makes sense to be tidy at the start. After I am finished, my work area tends to be somewhat worse for use but not much. I, on the other, seem to be incapable of not getting paint, sauces, or anything else on my skin, hair, and clothing.

Taurus / Leo ASC. Funny you should mention this. I could write a lengthy essay on this subject. I HAVE written lengthy essays on this subject. When I work in the darkroom (and I haven’t done that for years) I work in Clean Room conditions. Absolutely sterile, orderly, and totally dust free. I even had a radioactive ionizer device to neutralize static so dust would not adhere to negatives. Nuke that dust! I am also surprisingly clean when I paint. My studio might be a filthy, derelict warehouse but I an always spottless. Oil paints are pretty toxic so you… Read more »

OK, here’s a shot of my studio in 1985. This was a huge 1000 square foot loft in the Loft District in downtown LA. This shot shows about 1/5th of it. I’m painting on paper stapled to the wall, you can see my smeary test brushstrokes under and beside it. http://imgur.com/1GAqA.jpg Now here’s my studio today. I took this pic a few months ago, it’s basically the view that I see when painting. I’m doing some mixed media gouache/watercolors with huge brushes I bought in Japan. The painting you see is about 1/3 finished, that’s just the underpainting. Oh is… Read more »

Sacrifice? Bah. Working a 16 hour day on Election Day is nothing. Nobody outworks a Taurus. I did 4 consecutive weeks at the polling offices, working 70 hours per week. Last week I did 85 hours, but was unable to beat my previous record from 2008 of a 92 hour work week. I love overtime. But I don’t just do it for the money, I love working on the elections.

virgo sun. my room becomes completely messy as i create. the room usually starts out very clean (tho it doesn’t have to), but by the time i’m done creating, everything is just scattered all over the place. it’s quite embarrassing, esp when people come to visit.

Virgo…I create best in moderate chaos. My computer desk is half paints and half school work/bills. When I am creating, the school work and bills are pushed under the monitor.

Taurus sun 9th house. Aqua moon 7th house. Leo rising. I like everything to be clean and spacious. So you can really find everything you need and you can focus on your imagination and creativity not the clutter or dust or washing. I only say thins because I work from home at the moment. When I cook I use whatever dishes I need but I like to clean as I go. Like Fallen Angel said, it’s like the process never happened when it’s over. My work space has to be orderly- i’m studying at the moment and have to know… Read more »

Well I have developed and practice the compost theory of creativity. I am Virgo Sun ( 10th house) , Sagg rising and Gemini Moon ( if that is relevant). I maintain that all of the ideas that are floating around on the pieces of paper in my study will if aerated and mixed in the right proportions start to decompose and then synthesize organicallly into to most amazing life giving intellectual fertiliser, new ideas and novel conceptual tangents. I simply must have all my stimulaus distributed around me in layers of relevance. I love the interesing juxtaposition of ideas that… Read more »

I’m not sure where they come from but the aqua gave me some little sachets of fellowes easy screen cleaning wipes. They’re totally toxic – stink to high heaven etc. but WOW – I did the screen and though why waste this poisonous thing and went to work on the keyboard and it worked a treat.

As for other creative pursuits… does academia count? My desk is like a tidyness blind-spot – there’s clear space for my laptop and paper, but all around is piles of books, articles, one billion pens/pencils/ink refills etc etc plus random junk that accumulates. And I can work just fine in that! If I tidy it up, I can never… Read more »

Am truly sorry to barge in and use Mystic’s board (apologies Mystic) but this was discussed here:

Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani will be stoned to death in Iran tomorrow, 3 November; she has not been allowed access to her lawyer (who is also currently imprisoned and reportedly suffering torture) since mid-August.

Apologies to Mystic since I know she doesn’t want to open the door to these sorts of posts, but I just wanted to thank you for the info, Quadrupled. With all the mail bombs & the US elections today, this news is getting almost no play – I’d been following her case & had no idea she’d been scheduled to be executed.
(FYI: Reuters says she’ll be hanged, rather than stoned.)

I was hesitant too to use the board, but Mystic herself condemned the news if I remember correctly. Amnesty International is also trying to raise attention. Oh man, in many places lives are cheaper than a dime.

YES it astounds me how often the “cost” of a human life is brought up on the news – in afghanistan the USA were giving people whose families died from friendly fire $700. And that’s a lot compared to some other places where shit happens. $700 – imagine if someone rocked up after murdering your mum or dad and said, here’s $700 for you and the rest of your enormous family to live on until you’re old enough to fend for yourself? And then there’s the lack of parity – in the industry I work in you can earn that… Read more »

Mothers’ Day was also much the same, except you’d pause every couple of hours and have to clean up or else it would get unsafe. I’m tidier when cooking though.

Painting my abode was white boy shorts and sports bra, tanned skin artfully splattered with semi gloss.. my nails of course, were already painted white. Home projects, it’s cut off denim shorts and a tool belt, a little mid riff or tank.. you get the pic.

Libra Sun & Ascendant, Aquarius Moon – what is the point of creating if you don’t have mess to go along with it? Not for nothing am I known as Glitter Goddess – I get covered with the stuff. It’s FUN! At present I’ve got paint spots up arm, just done clothes check but none there, lol, so I’m off ot have a shower shortly.

Scorpio Sun I can only create in a clean space. The above picture causes the back of my neck crawl. This is part of the reason I live alone – I cannot cook in a dirty kitchen, or when there are dishes to be done. I even clean as I go when baking etc. I have to have everything in order to relax into creative mode, otherwise I am distracted constantly, and do not have the space for creativity to flourish. Stifled would be the correct word… I also purposefully create distinct energy zones for particular activities. For cooking, I… Read more »

I cleaned apartments when I was a student & the person who trained me told me that the only rooms I really needed to worry about were the kitchen & bathroom – everything else could get a superficial dusting, but those were the rooms people really noticed & paid for.

Everything has to be clean when I start. When I cook, or do any project, I clean as I go. Drives me crazy to be in the middle of clutter. Pisces sun, Libra Asc. When I’m finished with a project I never have to dread the clean up. It’s already done. That is such a good feeling.

Also Gemini sun and just cannot even begin with mess. Everything has to be in its place before I begin.
My theory about this is that there is so much whirring around in my brain that the only way to manifest it is to know exactly where the right tools for he job are at all times, and that they are prepped and ready for action. That way I can focus totally on the stuff in the headcase.

I used to be really messy (GemHub says I am still) while in the creative space especially. Like you Nocturnal, since having kids I am excessively neat and cannot relax unless the house is neat.

Aqua sun. Messy, out of control, stuff everywhere and not opposed to using good crockery / my skin / clothes for mixing or cleaning paint and brushes.

Worst of is my haughty attitude of, ‘Genius in progress, the rest of the house should be thankful for my sheer amazing artistry. Mess? Can’t see it, third eye has zoned out of reality and into creative bliss’. So much fun though!

My aqua artist partner is the same! I can’t bear mess. I cook with one pot, just to avoid it. He uses a thousand things just to make an omelette. His cooking is about a zillion times better than mine though.. so he cooks, and I clean, and mostly I am ok about that.
