Ochre ocean elevation – blue rabbit emerge

Rabbit blue lake in middle of OZ


Despite being the Year of the Rabbit, bunnies weren’t really on my radar, having already done a feature post on the refined rabbit. Recently, while indulging in an arial landscape foray for gong shi exploration, I had a chance sighting of an intruiging rabbit lake in the centre of Australia. It was in an auspicious location due to its proximity to Mount Wedge and Pupanya (origin of Indiginous Aussie Art from bark to canvas). This acted as a visual catalyst that motivated me to take a closer look into the Rabbit Year 

As this year is associated with the Water Rabbit, which only comes every 60 years, the last time this happened was in 1963, right on the cusp of an era of  cultural and artistic revolution.The Water Rabbit arouses artistic fluidity, creative virility, feminine flexibility, moderation, balance and moving with the flow. 

At this time the Beach Boys were launching their  breezy Surf Music mania and wave motion imagery was becoming very popular. Even ocean symbolic, shark fin designs were appearing as a frequent feature on most cars cruising around in the sixties. The bold sea sail architectural statement of the Sydney Opera House was also opened in 1963.

Miro, Jackson Pollock, Guido Gambone, Robert Crumb and numerous artists had introduced a freewheeling flow and spirit in their works, emboldened by a carefree abandon. So many shackles were suddenly shed, releasing an irrestistable spirit of freedom which kept expanding along with the far reaching musical innovation and genre fusion unleashed from Coltrane, Hendrix, The Beatles, Miles Davis and countless others in this artistically fertile decade.

The currently unique combination of the Water Rabbit, the emergence of Neptune and the beginning of a new Jupiter Grand Transit (2020) is a potent mix for spiritual illumination. I’m now anticipating a new phase of cultural expansion and creativity becoming imminent. I don’t beleive we can assimilate another ride as wild as the last time but I feel there will be a more nurturing component of rejuvination, creative healing, sustanence and preservation. 

Enjoy this collection inspired by rabbits, feminifience, calming beauty, ochre orange, trippy blue palletes, ethereal spontaneous flow and good fortune.

‘Serpent Rising’ —  Alexander Calamei


— “This dot art piece was inspired during the time of 12/12 /2020 as it was a pinnacle time due to  many stars aligning in our solar system and the dormant energy of the serpent under Uluru rising again. Mother earth is changing and she is waking up in many areas on the planet and Uluru. The centre is the Emotional Chakra of the Earth, waking the dormant serpent to assist with clearing trauma within the consciousness for healing humanity.” — Alexander Calamei

Corinna Maguire – lucky octopus cake

Eight legged creatures like the octopus and the spider (and their web) are worthy of contemplation  because they can guide you beyond entrapement from your deep past. The intricate webs and tentacles being symbolic of the entanglement that can bind us. That’s why traditionally they are known to free emotional and creative blocks. As a new era of inner freedom is now emerging, its a great time for some serious release.

Herbie Hancock and his Shelby Cobra

( built in Venice California. USA)


The bunny luck was working for Herbie in 1963 (Rabbit Year) when he acquired this Cobra car on a whim in NY for $6000, with money from his paycheck from his huge hit ‘Watermelon Man’. He had also just recorded a song called King Cobra, which he described as an attempt to “expand the flow [of jazz tunes and chords] so that it would go in directions beyond the usual” This was the beginning of  his expanding journey into fusion music that also included building the Funk genre in the 70’s. He still owns the Cobra, currently worth 2 $million.
