Astrology is amongst my many interests and I couldn't quite get the theme to work with my gift boxes or greeting cards. Yet with the tokens its a perfect fit, and since we are already a quarter of the way through the year already I'm using the coming months to share each zodiac Love-token with you.
With the buzz and excitement that February blows in each year which we know as Valentines Day, having now passed us all by, and for those of you in the know and looking forwards to celebrating new birthdays in the latter part of the month, which leads into the astrological sign of Pĭ śces. Today's blog post continues to introduce each Zodiac from the Love-Token Collection according to the astrological month. If you are an Aquārius then you can read the post for your zodiac sign here
Each Zodiac Love Token has a hand written description of the Zodiac sign mentioned and as many facts as I could include on each tile. The symbol itself is finished in a dark gold bold astrological symbol and lays on a background of pencil crayoned colour shaded paper, the text is then applied by hand.
Originally created to be tea coasters, but hey come on now they are just too attractive and others too decorative to be hidden and covered in coffee stains.
So with that in mind, they were destined to be decoratively hung around the home and given or kept as keepsakes gifts. In fact as is usually the case, one of the first Love Tokens I created was custom made for a friend of my daughter who is 7 yrs old. My daughter and I composed a special personalized message just for her, it featured a large red heart and was showered in crystals. Her mother explained to me later that once her daughter had read it she held it to her heart for ages as she sat watching T.V after school, then she carefully wrapped it back up and put next to her pillow. So sweet! She had recently moved to another school so missed my daughter and all her friends. It struck me then to name them Love Tokens once her mother explained to me that she knew her daughter would keep hers forever.
So indeed any of the zodiac signs could also be personalized with a message just for that individual receiving it. Each Love Token is backed with a layer of good old fashioned cork, with a green ribbon in the case of Pĭ śces representing the element.
This particular token reads:
Zō′dĭăc n. Belt of the heavens limited by lines about 8º from the ecliptic on each side, including all apparent positions of the sun, moon, and planets, and divided into 12 equal parts called signs of the zodiac Pĭ śces is the twelfth astrological in the zodiacal constellation. Pisces represents two fish tied together with a cord, it lies near Pegasus and Aquarius and representative Aphrodite (Venus) and her child Eros (cupid). The symbol from ichthyocentaurs who was aided Aphrodite when she was born. Feb 18 - Mar 20 Pĭ śces.
