There was always something magical in the stars, maybe the way they shine caught our eyes or maybe the fact that they are so untouchable still reachable or maybe we just fall in love with the spectacular map what they show as on the sky. I don’t know that much about stars but one thing is sure, that they lead us, define us, or show a part of us what we never saw before. So there is magic on the dark sky, there is magic in the bright stars, and there is magic in the hands which just drew these painting below, there is magic in TatiMoons art, which just shows us another part of the sky. ✨
To understand why zodiac sight got named after these animals first we need to know the origin story. The night before Chinese New Year all the animals were preparing for The Great Race the Jade Emperor ruler of the heavens called for all the creatures to participate in a race.

At least some people say these things, but they probably did not see Tatomoon’s paintings. As she makes new from old, and in every new thing she shuffles a small piece from the past. And looking at her art, we can slowly find out that the walls so often mentioned exist only in our heads. The distance that has been mentioned for so long is blurry with a few brush strokes
Now you probably think these cartoon character, not that old at all, and yep, I know that, but old was the best word for this article.
Art is like a little fairy dust in our everyday life. When we look at these miraculous things made by paint line, they make us feel that magic is real, and Peter Pan can appear in our window any moment to teach us to fly.
Well know may you think that fairy dust has nothing to do with horoscopes and I need to say you are right. But after you say these beautiful paintings by Tatimoons, you will probably understand… or not 😜
So what do you think? Tatimoons has magical hands?
