One of my favorite drawings by M.C. Escher is Other World – a woodblock from 1947.
So fun to wrap your brain around which perspective your vision travels as you navigate the drawing.
Escher drew fabulous images of changes – morphing one image into another – birds changing to fish then to cats. He had a great analytical way of turning the ‘situation’ upside-down and starting again. Escher had technical expertise, concentration, precision; extraordinary vision.
It is easy to see his strengths by the massive pile-up of planets in the 11th house of Aquarius. With Leo rising his chart ruler is Sun, and it is conjunct Neptune (the inspired artist). The Sun and its placement is where you ‘shine’ and in his case, it is peculiar viewpoints. That’s the Aquarius bit; the oddities, the unusual.
The natural house of Aquarius is the 11th (Think of it as the landlord). His stellium is in Gemini, (the tenant) which rules the hands, and dexterity. Pluto is digging up the hidden nature of what and how we see. Mercury is the trickster, after all – and is conveniently conjunct the Moon, which fluctuates.
Venus, or art, is in good aspect to the creative 5th house, and the Uranus Saturn conjunction provides the building (Saturn), of curious (Uranus), visionary (Sagittarian) works.
