Born in Stockholm, Sweden on October 26, 1862, (no exact birth time) (1) abstract artist, Hilma af Klint requested in her will that her art not to be shown publicly until twenty years after her death. It would take forty-two years for the public to view her vibrant, mystical, some 10 x 8 feet tall paintings at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in Los Angeles, California in November of 1986. She firmly stated that her art would not be understood by the public during her lifetime. The founder of the Anthroposophical Society, Rudolf Steiner, who rejected her ‘mystical’ art seemed to contribute to her decision not to show her paintings, named “Paintings for the Future” but to a few during her career. Ms. Klint attended the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Art in Stockholm, Sweden early in her life.

Why and how does Swedish Artist, Hilma af Klint resonate so deeply with you

An astrological chart is always alive! Hilma af Klint, born in Stockholm, Sweden, attended the Royal Academy of the Fine Arts, which I applied to. My plans didn’t work out, and I became a Draftswomen, getting lost in space and magical numbers.
During my writing of Hilma’s life, Spirit came through with chilling connections in our astrological charts, as well as our hunger for the ‘infinite’. “Hilma af Klint was convinced that reality was not confined to the physical world. Parallel to the material dimension there exists an inner realm the contents of which were as true and real as those of the outer world”. (www.hilmaafKlint.se).

The 2022 astrological observations gear toward continuing challenges, but there is also room for hope. Pain hurts, but the rewards are plentiful. We can’t take back time. 2020 will go down in the history books, with political dialogues reaching all aspects of the spectrum.
