Signs in Time

This piece begins to explore planar distinctions within each star group. All forty-eight of the original constellations are here charted in the context of “time zoning.” Intervals of shifting values of light and dark describe the periodic cycling of the stars within their proper sequence. Light and dark variances within each constellation group form some additional planar possibilities for further visual investigation.
Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?
