Photo Therapy Videos for Zodiac Signs

Since 2012, my passions have torn me in three directions until now. I finally found a way to combine photography, astrology and music research.  I uploaded videos that combine sound healing with nature photography with Zodiac elements in mind.

I started with the Water Signs, Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces since most of my chart lands in deeper waters.  I don't just include water imagery as I include imagery that appeals to each of the water signs sensibilities so you will find images from Earth, Air and Fire in some instances.

Since I don't work with a composer currently, I selected the piece of music, a composition called "Luna" from YouTube's selection of audio tracks.  Luna of course refers to the Moon which is ruled by Cancer.

Once I uploaded the Water Sign video, I set out to produce a video for Air Signs, but how do you convey an invisible force? I didn't have photographs of hot air balloons or kites or even eagles handy so I did the next best thing and included birds, trees and a single butterfly.  I ended up making two videos for Air because I wasn't completely satisfied with the first one, but I liked the imagery of angels which I found on Wikipedia and the beautiful music with my name in the title.

For the second video, I included a piece by Bach on the soundtrack and stuck with the bird, clouds and tree themes.  I found the Bach music both relaxing and stimulating to the mind.  As you may or may not know, Bach's repertoire if often used for psycho-acoustic recordings (study of sound on the nervous system) and is considered healthy music choices by experts in the areas of music therapy and sound healing.  I also used animation on some of my photographs since Air Signs tend to have a shorter attention span than the other signs, although Fire Signs aren't far behind in this regard.

Once I completed the Air videos, I immersed myself in nature images for the Earth Signs.  I thought of all the ways I could convey this element from showing urban farms to farmers markets and the great outdoors. Again, you'll find images of birds, but also a cat and deer.  Again, I returned to psycho-acoustic experts and chose Claude Debussy's Claire de Lune which I found on YouTube's list. How fortunate!

I have yet to produce a video for the Fire Signs.  This one will take longer because finding imagery is a real challenge and I don't feel this element physically or spiritually since I have no fire in my Natal chart.  But it will happen before March arrives so hang in there, Aries, Leo and Sag.

  1. As you can tell by the cramming of type against the videos for this post, Mercury goes Direct today. I'll fix this problem at another time.
