I began looking at pictures of Mars in 2008. I had a job designing textiles then, and I was bored, and at lunchtime I would log onto nasa.com and stare at pictures of little mechanical rovers lurking over a vast, bright, faraway planet. Mars was in the news then--and is still in the news--because it is the ultimate frontier. China, the U.S. and India all want to send a long, skinny, phallus-like rocket up into the sky--up, up, up, up, until it pierces the Martian atmosphere and men in white suits spill out of the spacecraft to plant flags in the dirt. 

            Within the Shamanic astrology paradigm, Mars symbolizes the masculine life force. It is cold. It is dry. It is barren. It is harsh. But when I first looked at photos of Mars, it struck me that maybe we have never fully seen the "red planet," for it is in fact orange. It is a lovely, lustrous orange, and oftentimes it is rimmed by a luminous and very pretty indigo sky. I wanted, all those years ago, to investigate Mars with a women's sensitivity, and to explore its possibilities.
