Virgo Greeting Card - Large (Collectors Edition)
The astrological sign of Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd) is an earth sign which is ruled by the planet mercury and symbolised by the virgin. People born under this sign may seem self-conscious, shy and introverted on the surface, especially when dealing with new people or situations, but once they're fully comfortable their true character shines though, they relax and display their intellect. Virgos are known for their methodical and precise approach and they're happy to share their knowledge with others. They can be cautious, which helps them sort out practical ideas from airy fairy ones, and they can be very analytical.
Comes with a full colour envelope. Each card also has artwork inside and a highlighting of fine glitter on the front illustration which adds sparkle.
Size of Cards: Each card measures approximately 191 x 247 mm (8.5 x 11 inch).
Prose on the inside left of card reads (by Josephine Wall):
August 23 - September 22
Like the planet we stand on,
Virgo is solid and true.
No job is too hard
for this earth sign to do.
Always ready to serve
and bring order to messes,
they bring practical answers
with logic - not guesses.
Much too hard on themselves,
Virgos need to see the ways
their kind, thoughtful care
helps to brighten others' days.
Prose on the inside right of card reads (by Josephine Wall):
You are a very special part
of my universe.
About Josephine Wall
Josephine Wall was born in Farnham, Surrey, England. Her work now is receiving worldwide acclaim inlcuding a nomination at the Arty Awards (the artworld equvalent of the oscars). She works mostly with acrylic paint and has been infuenced by the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites, surrealist artists like Salvador Dali and the illustrative work of Arthur Rackham.
From childhood she has had a passion for light and colour, fantasy and visual story telling. Much of the inspiration for her mystical images comes from her close observation of nature and her interest in its preservation. Though she often strives to impart a message in her scenes, she also hopes to inspire in her audience a personal journey into the magical world of their own imagination.
"The art of painting is more than a career to me," she says, "it is an all consuming obsession and a love of colour and form. In fact, if I am away from my easel for too long I become restless and anxious to paint again."
