Very interesting topic. I'm a published author and poet, I have also been interested in videography. Astrologically speaking, I'm a Capricorn lagna and Venus, which is my Atmakaraka, is also in my first house. I write haiku poetry, which is a direct and short poetic form devoid of metaphors and such. It perfectly illustrates my down-to-earth, Capricornian nature. Since Rahu is located in my eleventh house, I have always felt dissatisfied with creating only for myself. My work needs to have a practical purpose and meaningful impact on people. This is why my poetry is inspired by ancient religious and philosophical traditions, I also include commentaries which aim to explain these historical customs.

I consider my interest in astrology and occult studies another form of my creative self-expression. My eleventh lord Mars located in the eighth house additionally energises this area of my life (financially speaking too) and gives me concentration and idealistic zeal required for studying and research. I have five planets in Sattvic signs, which explains my strong desire to bring something positive and good to the world. Whether I write poetry or do astrological readings, I am always inspired by something higher and idealistic.

Also, I have Uranus and Neptune on my lagna! I'm generally very hard to define or pin down. I hope everyone will find this information useful in relation to the connection between the art and the occult.

@gwindor I discovered Haiku last month: this was an assignment from science class for my 11-yr old son. He’s very straight to the point so he did something very straight to the point LOL. 

I like how you talk about the 11th house.  I have Saturn there in Cancer and the meaningful and impact aspect has always been important for me as well but it is something that I only start to be comfortable doing, Saturn being a delaying factor (ruling my 5th and 6th). That is also why I think art starts to become more and more important in my life (and not something I reject as superficial anymore). 
Thanks for sharing, very interesting!

Hi Mona and all,

Can contribute my two cents. For me creative art and occult seems very correlated. I've been a dancer and choreographer for more than 10 years by now. Also like to paint and all things concerning style, design and photography... But been interested in occult studies as from the age like 11 or so.. Thanks to my mother we've had wall sized shelves of esoteric and psycho literature 😅. 

I think it's just this feeling of the unknown allpowerful force behind our conscious understanding. I've noticed this feeling in me very early. And that's why I was ready for this unknown stream direct me when I've been creating each choreography. When I had certain inspiration I've just surrendered to the flow, and my body was an instrument. That's how it's been in a perfect occasion. But some days mind interrupted the process and I wasn't really satisfied with the result.

I didn't really practiced reading charts for other people yet, but I already feel it's also not only calculation, but an Art in a sense that it's smth that comes to you from some much greater consciousness/power. Insight, revelation, whatever you call it. And in astrology, likewise in creative arts, not only this feeling counts, but also the technique is really important. By working on technique you become a greater provider of truth/beauty. 

So that's my thoughts about it.

@beatamanelle That’s a great story. I love dance very much and took classes all the way up to being 7 months pregnant. I would have kept doing it all the way to the end if I had not fell off my bike and injured myself. Trying to go back to it taking online classes but it’s not the same and I don’t have the discipline. But I’ve discovered Nicole Kirkland in the process and I like her style and find her very talented (if you can handle provocative:). It’s definitely a mix of art and technique like astrology. Thanks for sharing.

@mona wow, you know Nicole Kirkland 😄 Didn't think somebody here could know her. I was a fan of her for some time, but then decided I should be more pios, LOL. She is provocative indeed, but very talented nevertheless.

I'm sorry you can't continue to dance in previous pace. I'm also on a break from dancing now, had like a burnout, but maybe inspiration will return. At least not for job, but just for fun. It's a great release of active Mars energy after all. Mine is in 8th by the way and rules 5th and 10th. So maybe it pretty explains my occupations in life 🙂

@beatamanelle haha yep, i discovered her on a platform called Steezy and have enjoyed watching some of her choreographies. Haven't attempted one myself yet, just checking which on I can handle LOL. And dancing for fun sounds good, I can imagine it can get tiring as a job after a while!
