Astro-Notes on Toulouse-Lautrec

Thanks to one of his favorite drinking clubs, the Moulin Rouge, the noble-born Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec found fame and renown through his posters featuring dancers, Paris’ ladies of the evening, and the gentlemen who were attracted to them. Here is one example of his work:

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec 036

Born at Chateau du Bosc at Albi, France, Toulouse-Lautrec was the son of two first cousins and was unfortunate enough to be afflicted with dwarfism. Besides his short stature, extreme near-sightedness, drooling, and a lisp added to his misery as other people found his appearance distinctly unappealing. Eventually the social outcast discovered his drawing talent while recovering from a broken leg (fragile bones) at his childhood home, the castle of du Bosc.

The astrology of his birth tells an interesting tale with his genius (Uranus in Gemini) in a beneficial trine (120 degrees) with Saturn, planet of realism, form, and structure (canvasses).

If you wish, view a brief bio and his natal horoscope here.

You’ll find his Sun in early Sagittarius, sign of the Seeker, and natal Moon in Venus-ruled Libra, a sign of art, beauty, and social activities. Rising at his 6:00 am birth (LMT) on November 24, 1864 is Scorpio, a sign associated with health issues.

As for his personality, a Fire-Air Sun Sag-Moon Libra blend denotes one with an optimistic streak (Sagittarius ruled by jolly Jupiter), a social conscience, and a liking for entertainment. We see a combination of the underdog, the innocent child, and the eccentric artist within this blend.

Admiration is a requirement of this blend so that his recognition in the art world of Paris must have given him on a deep level some measure of satisfaction. Passionate and idealistic, Toulouse-Lautrec wanted to “share the grand journey” of life with someone yet we feel his disappointment in the romance department. Painting Can-Can dancers on stage or women bathing had to suffice with perhaps a bit of lovemaking tossed in–out of what?….pity?

Taking care of everyday responsibilities was not Henri’s strong suit with this personality blend and of course the heavy drinking made that conveniently impossible. Reliance upon luck would have been a tendency along with gullibility, a quick wit, and an over-expansive style. Night clubs such as the racy Moulin Rouge were the perfect environment for his ‘live wire’ Fire-Air personality with its abundance of ideas and love of fast pace living.

Now for his Sun Sag-Moon Libra Images for Integration brought to us by Charles and Suzi Harvey’s Sun Sign-Moon Sign:

“Amidst a whirl of gaiety, a writer sits in a coffee house taking notes, and a painter paints…The Dead Poets Society.”

A few famous folk who were also born under the influence of a Sun Sag-Moon Libra blend include: Jonathan Swift, Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, Saki, Maria Callas, Betty Grable, Walt Disney, David Carradine, and Werner Heisenberg.

As you see, all but the last are in the entertainment or writing fields unless you consider physics to be an entertainment. My thought is that Toulouse-Lautrec possessed the ability to see beneath surfaces which informed his portrayals of human anatomy!

Cosmic Art: the weird, the masked, the slideshow

Here is one of the weird sort of drawings I perpetrate from time to time: Cosmic Persona in Flux which was originally published at Cosmic Persona Designs (for 17+ only due to mild adult content.)

This one has a masked theme (for we all wear them) and is drawn with Prismacolor oil along with Derwent watercolour pencils on black paper…pour vous!

Now I use the watercolour pencils dry only but naturally they work well with water if you prefer. And do try them on black paper if you haven’t for I think you’ll like the brilliant colors, depth, and special effects which may be achieved.

~:~

For 24/7 art browsing you’re cordially invited to mosey by my Zazzle Art Shop.

Or how about taking a moment to view my ‘Cosmic Flowers Art’ Slideshow? You’ll discover that one of my more popular drawings on this blog, ‘Flowers of India’, is included in the floral display!

Moon Bush Attracts Fairy! (new Cosmic Art)

Moon Bush Attracts Fairy

Friday is good for viewing artwork, don’t you agree? Chilaxing, I think. Here’s Moon Bush Attracts Fairy!even though I know that you already know that they do. Who can forget?

This drawing is a sample of the sort of illustrations I perpetrate quite often and upload freely to Secret Moon Art in the Botanical, Children’s, Fairy, Moon, Cosmic, and other categories, and which are suitable for all ages. Also, I design merchandise for my Art Shop @ Zazzle as well, so mosey by 24/7 for a peek as you wish.

However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are.
