Creating a mandala each month, or each season, from things found in nature is a meditation on what is happening in the Wheel of the Year, but also a reflection on our own feelings and how they change. Each year has a pattern of similarities, but is never quite the same. In 2017, two of my mandalas were also faces. In January 2017 I created a wintery self-portrait, with sparse twigs, while I made a Green Man for the Autumn Equinox in September 2017. My mandala for April 2017 was a bouquet that seemed to represent how nature changes so fast in spring and how time rushes on. Make the most of each moment!
Jack in the Greens and Jill in the Greens are often created as part of May Day festivities, and I'll be talking about Magic for the Month of May in a free Facebook Live event on Friday 7th May at 4pm. You can watch it after that too, as the video will remain available. Here's the link and details: https://www.facebook.com/events/744767222850385/
