A Look into the World of Astrology

If you love to watch romantic-comedy movies, you may have seen some characters that try to pick up girls by asking them what their zodiac signs are. However, while the “What’s your sign?” line is played out in these rom-coms primarily for comedic effect, the concept of astrology is actually based on mathematics and science. In the past, people believed that astrology can indicate what the future holds. In these modern times, that belief still stands.

Astrology also indicates romantic compatibility between people. The determining factor for romantic compatibility is sometimes based on astrology, too. For example, water signs like Cancer and Pisces are said to be compatible, as well as the earth signs like Capricorn and Virgo. A relationship between a Cancer and a Capricorn is not necessarily doomed but is believed to be full of challenges, so the couple will have to exert more effort to make the relationship work.

It is also believed that people’s characteristics are dependent on their astrological signs. Pisceans are said to overflow with compassion and devotion, while Scorpions are extremely loyal and resourceful. Some astrology art works like paintings and wall decorations show these wonderful qualities, which would make wonderful inspirations for those who are struggling to know themselves or for those who have lost their way.

Why Purchase Art?

Art has existed for as long as man has. From cave wall paintings, to hieroglyphs, to Romantic canvasses, to postmodern splatters, visual art has always been created by humans who want to express themselves when words do not suffice.

People also love to collect and display art as much as they love to create them, with famous paintings by artists like Van Gogh and Picasso selling for millions of dollars. Some might wonder why people would spend such an exorbitant amount of money for a painting, but there are reasons why different individuals keep inspirational wall decorations:

  1. Interior Design. A painting can greatly alter the appearance of a specific room. A carefully chosen piece can add personality to a certain space. Good purchases can make a middle-income family’s home feel like a millionaire’s.

  2. Abundance of Art. There are a lot of artworks that are constantly created around the world, and one of them is bound to fit right inside someone’s home.

  3. Relaxation. Looking at visual art that one finds beautiful enables the brain to release a pheromone that is also present when one is in love. Looking at art that one loves helps one to relax, given the hustle and bustle of modern-day living.

Of course, one does not need to purchase classical or monumental works to enjoy such benefits. Any painting, sculpture, or decorative print can give a person inspiration and joy, as long as he or she chooses artwork with personal meaning.

Inspirational Wall Decoration and its Effect on a Child’s Development

“Most of us instinctually know that art is important for our children; we simply believe it’s important because we’ve seen our children deeply involved in art. But beyond what we feel and believe, there is much factual information about why art is important in our children’s development that is both interesting and helpful to know. Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them, and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child’s development.
The activity of art creation, according to the article, will rear the child into developing life skills, such as communication skills, social skills, and fine motor skills. This makes the presence of art in a household, from art materials to meaningful and inspirational wall decor, conducive to a child’s development.
Children are naturally curious, according Dr. Bruce Duncan
