Welp, this recap is teensy bit late but better late than never! Here are all the illustrations I did for Week Two of my #100daysofinkedastronomy! I’m still going strong in this challenge, I haven’t missed a single day yet which has really surprised me, but also makes me feel really proud. I am terrible with challenges that require so much commitment but it’s actually working out really well for me!

One of the things I really love about my project is that everyday I get to explore a new constellation. I learn its name, what it looks like and if I have time, I read about what it represents and the stories behind it! Eventually I want to be well versed in all the constellations in the sky but I think that is going to take a while haha! I’m interested in all their stories because eventually I would love to turn these illustrations into an Oracle deck for myself. I imagine shuffling a deck of a hundred cards then picking one that could be any constellation, moon phase or meteor shower, then using the myths and stories to give them a divinatory message. The idea of an Oracle deck comprised of the very essence of the night sky just rocks my world and I can’t wait to get it in my hands, but first I have to get all these illustrations finished!

I hope you’re enjoying my project and your own if you are taking part!
