Llewellyn’s 2006 Astrological calendar features 12 original paintings by artist Mia Bosna, who specializes in artwork inspired by the shamanic journey. The intriguing illustrations representing the 12 signs of the Zodiac reflect her experience with mystical realms, conveying the elemental nuance of each sign.
A fiery ram erupts out of a volcano, representing the enthusiastic, passionate nature of Mars-ruled Aries. A crimson scorpion descends into an underground cave, poised to dive into deep blue water, while gently cascading waterfalls stream down rocky steps—symbolic of Pluto-ruled Scorpio’s tendency towards emotional intensity and intuitive depth. Rows of sunflowers line a lush field, while a few turn their “heads” toward a leonine sun—representing both the ruler of Leo and the shining nature of this proud, attention-seeking sign.
Bosna’s captivating artwork notwithstanding, Llewellyn’s 2006 Astrological Calendar provides much more than something pretty to look at every month.
