I miss albums. I’m not an audiophile. I miss the art work. And having the lyrics printed out, so I could sing along. These two albums have hung on my wall for the past 17 years.  I think modern albums covers come in four categories: the portrait, the photograph, minimal design, and then painted or illustrated art. Personally, I love a good portrait.

Albums originally just had plain sleeves on them. Then in 1938, Columbia Records hired Alex Steinweiss as its first art director. He is credited with inventing the concept of album covers and cover art, replacing the plain covers used before. Two years later all the major recording companies had their own colorful covers. I have attached some album cover art and music that may or may not align with your reading.

P.S. Remember, when signs have * it’s a big week for you.

album_The-Dixie-Cups-Riding-HighAries – Five of Cups – This week the Five of Cups challenges you not to cry over spilt milk. So, this can be literal as in spilled liquids or the metaphorical milk.

Dark_Side_of_the_Moon*Taurus – The Moon – Last week did you accept the challenge to get into your Zen spot (grounded and non-judgmental) and let the chaos glide over you or interact with it playfully?

By mid -week the chaos begins and by the end of the week you might feel like you need to run away and find some space. So that grounding exercise from last week will be very useful in getting through the roller coaster of emotions this week. The challenge with The Moon is that you need to feel those emotions.  Those feelings have clues to what you need and what you don’t want in your life. Pink Floyd
