In 2012 I created a hyperbolic tessellation mandala for each of the zodiac signs. For Scorpio, its symbol is represented as a scorpion and its stinger (m + a tail).
In true Scorpio form, I felt a strong pull to dive into the background with a deep, rich purple color. Doing that, brings more attention to the Scorpio symbol in the foreground while its investigative energy crawls through the deep dark recesses of the background. She’s seeking the truth behind the scenes, knowing that she will steadily continue her quest until she finds it.
Read about the “Sign of Scorpio” as this week’s Mandala of the Week.
About the Mandalas of the Day:
I post a variety of in-progress art for that day which can include mandalas from the Mandala of the Week, the Mandala of the Month, the Mandala of the Year, or the Mandala Meditation Stones.

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
