|| SCARLET ||
Not a cheap dye to manufacture, scarlet is a potent status symbol, but it is also a visible expression of the choleric temperament, representing passion, energy, + power. In Plenilune, it is prominently associated with the first + tenth houses, of Mars + Capricorn, & is subsequently linked with personal ambition + patriarchal responsibility. (Astrology is a real deal with these folks.)
Scarlet is a life colour, & possibly one of my personal favourites to crop up in my writing. It is vibrant, potent, + symbolically vivid. Yes, I love to be monochrome, but I'm scarlet on the inside. (Love it or hate it, my writing has never been called drab!) Even though I write prose (with the occasional dubious foray into poetry), I love the way poetry can lead you through a series of colour sensations, & I work hard to do the same with my prose. In Plenilune, scarlet is one of the boldest colours to leap off the page, & I love it!
share your colours!
- There are more colours to come, but I'm curious to see what colours you utilize in your writing. You can do the whole spectrum with images, or maybe just highlight a few favourites. (It's also a helpful way to see which colours you tend to leave out, eh heh...)
HOW TO || I'm sure there are lots of ways to create these collages; mine is probably not the most efficient but OH WELL. I use the LAYOUT app with images saved off PINTEREST. That way I can arrange them however I want, & presto! I have a pretty collage. That's honestly all there is to it.
i hope you enjoyed, & i'll see you next time!xoxo, jenny
