Day 5: 30 Days of Self Portraits

Is it true that by day 5 I might actually be enjoying drawing myself? Maybe... when I can have fun with it like this 😉 and talk about stardust...



Image: Self Portrait, charcoal and pastels

I started out with this just planning on being a charcoal drawing... only black and white. Then the words "we are all made of stars" popped into my head 🤣 THEN... the Moby song followed. So of course I had to put on the song. After that I had to pull out the box of Rembrandt pastels and add some sparks of color...


...and yes I do keep my charcoal sticks in an old Victoria's Secret box that says "Angel Forever." I don't remember what came in the box originally at this point, but I'm sure it was fun 🌟

“People they come together... People they fall apart... No one can stop us now... 'Cause we are all made of stars" —Moby

If you'd like to listen while looking at the drawing... it enhances the experience...

Moby - We are all made of stars

Growing in numbers

Growing in speed

Can't fight the future

Can't fight what I see


People they come together

People they fall apart

No one can stop us now

'Cause we are all made of stars


Efforts of lovers

Left in my mind

I sing in the reaches

We'll see what we find


People they come together

People they fall apart

No one can stop us now

'Cause we are all made of stars


People they come together

People they fall apart

No one can stop us now

'Cause we are all made of stars


Slow slow slow, come come

Someone come come come

Even love is goin' 'round

You can't ignore what is goin' 'round


Slowly rebuilding

I feel it in me

Growing in numbers

Growing in peace


People they come together

People they fall apart

No one can stop us now

'Cause we are all made of stars


Speaking of the stars... Chiron in Aries will take us to deeper levels of healing in self-empowerment. What is blocking us from being in our power? What is it that makes us feel so existentially "alone" in the world and causes us to feel powerless? This is also part of the unravelling of the wound in Aries... coming back to RECEIVING. We hold ourselves back from receiving the love that is all around us... and it is there... in the sun, the trees, the flowers, the birds, the smiles from strangers, and even the songs that pop into our heads ❤️
