Eclipse Tuning Your Art, Fashion, Food etc

Shinji Turner?Yamamoto, Constellaria #13, 2017. Ca. 450-million-year-old Ordovician fossil dust and shale, ca. 440-million-year-old Silurian volcanic ash, cultured crystals grown on Ordovician fossil fragments, 24kt gold and silver leaf, gesso, clay bole, animal glue, dragon’s blood, natural resin, mixtion, raw linen canvas, wood panel | 72 x 71 x 7 cm (on view at SAPAR CONTEMPORARY)

 

When the Full Moon is an Eclipse in Leo, consciousness can be raised at warp speed.Β  And not by opting out but by opting In. Choose what you consume with wisdom. Finesse your everything. If everything was a giant cosmic stock exchange – and maybe it is – this would be the time to go short on “normal.”

For me, my current art crush is the above, Shinji Turner Yamamoto – vision and perspective plus, the food is figs + I.V. antioxidants and sound track = Brian Eno – Apollo. Film: The Neon Demon, about vampire models in L.A., described by many critics as “ridiculous and puerile” – but, imho, amazing.Β  I saw shadows of Bunuel & Helmut Newton through it – Lee Miller even.

So it’s a Full Moon Eclipse in LEO with Uranus involved – we are allowed to get off on haute art and micro-adjusting our sensibilities.Β  In fact, fuq permission. What are your Full Moon Eclipse in Leo art-style-trend-film-food-whatever recommendations.

Synchronicity is magic! I just watched Neon Demon for the first time on the eclipse. The competition can really “eat you up” if you’re too innocent, right? My husband opted not to watch it with me, after reading the cover description, his comment was, “Lame.” After watching it, he asked if I thought he would like it and I said, “No, it’s about women.” Too complicated! Beauty…art…suffering for the beauty and art…artificial vs natural…what’s a girl to do?

My recommendation are related to beauty: luscious argan oli based face mosturizer, hair trim, legs waxing (well one has to do it) and a more healthy but yummy food.
I lost 2 kilos and it looks like I have lost 5: I got very unexpected compliments on how my legs are slim but I look very fit and if feels like what I started with the NM in Acqua at the end of January now has a meaning.
It feels very lonely though: Full Moon illuminates everything, right? And mine is in the 12th house.

Yeah it’s felt lonely for me too. Strange because until now I’d always thought I was perfectly content in solitary but starting to genuinely crave human connections now and aware of a sadness that I’ve spent so long just struggling along on my own. I suppose the upside is knowing I actually DO have that craving vs being in denial re needs. Also doing the home cleaning and body / face / hair stuff myself these days using only natural products. It’s bizarre how long silly advertisements have convinced me I needed ridiculous chemicals and nasty nonsense that I just… Read more »

Entire floor of flat covered in salt. Got rid of almost everything in the flat, either donated or just chucked out. Minor regrets over on or two items and the crazy Black, white or grey ethic only but on the whole kind of okay. Finally finished a 500 piece of fiction in the autobiographical style, based exactly on the prompt ie fictionalising an actual event, which tbh I found quite difficult to get my head around and really struggled with. It’s one thing when I write spontaneously but to write and submit and admit I have finished – at least… Read more »

Fabulous writing and so just what I need right now!
Laughing at the muggle references I’d not known were from there. What a gorgeous story it is. Why on earth was I so sure I’d not enjoy it?
Silly girl.
It’s delightful.

I just finished watching The Neon Demon. I could definitely see the Helmut Newton influence but found the suggested sexual violence toward a minor troubling. I think the director also suggests that people are chosen by others based on chemistry alone and all rationalizing is irrelevant. The editorial photographer showed interest in the “washed-up” older model only after devouring the lead character, he reacted to the change in the vampire model’s chemistry after the she had ingested a person he was drawn to. Or how the makeup artist was able to easily eliminate her (coincidentally as moon blood flow) where… Read more »

You’ll laugh at this food comment but I made Nutella from scratch last night, I subbed the palm oil with walnut and the cocoa is organic from Peru.

So add to the highly subjective chemistry-between-people element, beauty and youth are the only currency, corresponding with the very short career of your average model. The main character modeled until the point that she learned to revel in her own power -she didn’t even develop a successful career out of it.

Love the Uranian art up there MM! I’m being a homebody because there’s all sorts of weird full moon eclipse violence going on in my city atm, but my Tumblr is like a giant art gallery that never fails me. I’m doing a mix of haute and low snacks. Haute “lotus pops” aka “gorgon nuts” (Gorgon!) that are crunchy and seasoned and supposedly full of antioxidants. And the low, but ever tasty, gummy bears, but they were a gift and they come in 11! flavors. I recently was trying to make “healthy gummies” with gelatin and kombucha and fruit juice,… Read more »

And since we are talking Leo here…I discovered a lifesaving hair product, a dry shampoo texturizing paste that is mostly natural ingredients. More texturizer than dry shampoo, and so much volume, as one reviewer described it, “Texas hair”. I don’t achieve those heights but I do reach a new personal best for my mane.

My contribution to the artistic well being of the planet was to show my 2 oldest granddaughters (8 & 5) “The 3 Amigos”.

The 5yo (Cancer Sun/Asc/Merc & Venus & Scorp Moon) cacked herself over the crossing the salt lake. And mimicked all the comedic highlights.

Have always loved Brian Eno’s Apollo. I used to listen to it every night as I feel asleep… I’ve had some nice realistic dreams of being out in space, some that I’ve never forgotten even years later. I’m too low energy and depressed right now to get all haute and avant garde with art. I can’t keep up with my own lame life, much less have my finger on the pulse of anything new and cool. I’ve never been the cool girl.. Leo-related stuff: I’m so sick of my hair. It is so ‘meh’ right now. It’s a dull shade… Read more »

I’ve been obsessing over William Gibson’s short story “The Gernsback Continuum.” Free PDF online if you’re interested in reading about the consequences of toxic nostalgia as demonstrated by deco-futurist architecture from the 50s: http://writing2.richmond.edu/jessid/eng216/gernsback.pdf

Partner and I have been getting stoned and eating dark chocolate brownies I made on Thurs with vanilla ice cream. We’re watching The L Word and can’t get over how rude everyone is.

Too distracted by politics to take in much else right now, tbh.

Retro-everything and Vintage obsession going on with me now. Lots of 1940s mystery movies and old time radio broadcasts (i got an app). Bought my first vintage costume jewelry piece (a 1950s Ciner rhinestone and red cabouchon bracelet) and now looking at 1930’s ring and art deco bracelet to continue collecting.. Realizing that old school luxury really nourishes me and looking at my home and how it needs some TLC to spruce it up. (Paint, carpet cleaning, and more Art on the walls.).

Been starting off my mornings with Flo Morrisey’s take on “Look at What the Light Did Now” followed by Tash Sultana (thx Baristagem!). Realized I was listening to way too much Leonard Cohen and the National’s Boxer album. I mean, is it healthy to listen to “Fake Empire” and “Dress Rehearsal Rag” too many times? Switched to Bjork and other upbeat lady music thankfully. At the last few drops of my lemon, cedar, and sage spray. Time for a new scent I suppose. Food? Can’t do much with a partial kitchen but I’ve been drinking strawberry & raw honey mixed… Read more »

Art gallery of NSW has a major exhibition on the ‘nude’. Some of the most iconic nude paintings sculpture and photography. All accompanied by dancers from the Sydney Dance Company performing nude. Audience nude. We went to a non nude audience evening but I imagine the nude audience nights would be quite interesting.The exhibition is stunning !

Really going in the buff is no big deal. Everyone always thinks it’s going to be sexy time but you get desensitized quickly. Plus bringing towels with you whereever you sit…is proper nude in public ettiquette. I recommend participating in a nude bicyling event if there is one in your area. I did one back in 2008. It was interesting but wasnt my scene.

Iverson doco is now on my watch list thanks Davidl! Nude exhibit looks soo cool they pulled some fantastic works for it.

So this is about consumption, the eclipse is in my second house so you know, there’s some leeway there, I bought a podcast that is all about saturn in Leo. Lots of Leo and fire work. New exercise gear – I tend to run in my most shredded clothing, this is fine, but I can’t resist the neon-wear and for survival purposes do actually need proper loose singlets made for running in what is actually a sauna right now.

I just got back from a Cuban Orishas/Hip Hop dance concert and it was amazing. The Orishas (perhaps you know) are African divinities that traveled into parts of America with the slaves. This concert combines traditional Cuban dances and stories of Ochun, especially (think Aphrodite) and her conquests, with street dance from the U.S. (She also seduced Xango in a salsa scene, which was pretty cool.)

Seeing three young men in baggy jeans come out and *embody* Xango was just amazing. Chills and goosebumps everywhere.

That’s the only link I can find with a decent picture, though it doesn’t have any of the street-style dancers.

It’s possible extended googling of Donna Mation would come up with something; she’s done a lot of work with the Orishas in the past, though usually through a more Brazilian lens. I’m not sure how long she’s been combining with street styles.
