he twelve signs of the Zodiac, each one bearing a central female figure that represents the dominant aspects of the sign, surrounded by a wreath of flowers and leaves in which the symbols of the twelve signs revolve in relationship to one another.

Water - greens and blues
Fire - reds and oranges
Earth - ochres and greens,

“I come forth and from the plane of mind, I rule.”


TAURUS (21 april – 20 may):
“I see and when the Eye is opened, all is illumined.”
