Aries - Ode To Joy by Anna Shaw

“The sky and the earth are charged with our power as we pay homage to the Ram, who brings us the passing of winter and the emergence of spring. Flowers grow, and new beginnings are here. It is an ode to joy” (anna shaw)

“Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,Daughter of Elysium,We enter fire imbibed,Heavenly, thy sanctuary"

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign, ruled by Mars. As the first sign in the zodiac, and corresponding with the first day of spring, the Aries individual is a mover and shaker, fearlessly forging ahead or “springing forth” into new territory.

The Aries personality is always a force to be reckoned with. These are curious and energetic individuals, always delving into new areas, but often quickly becoming bored and moving on, leaving unfinished projects in their wake. Arians are forthcoming and direct. They don’t generally have hidden agendas or ulterior motives. If they find an area in which they are interested for a long period, they can become accomplished, well-known, and wealthy.

This image was created in Photoshop CS4. It took over 70 layers to merge and blend all the foreground images with the background. Many different textures were added and lots of painting was involved. It was tremendous fun to create this.

I am indebted to the following artists for the generous use of their stock…
