Pityriasis Rosea Art

You may think this is a picture of Jupiter, or maybe Mercury?
But it is not.
I actually found these spots on my back.
At the beginning, I was scared. I thought it was a virus or a contagious disease. But it was not.
I went to see a doctor and this was the diagnosis: Pityriasis Rosea
And since it does not present any symptoms at all, besides the spots...and the causes are unknown... I would not say it is a disease...
I would rather say it is
"an organic tattoo designed by my own organism"

So yeah... I played a little bit with the picture above to make it look like a planet.
Why did I do that?

Well, the idea behind this image has to do with the planetary transits that I am experiencing right now.
Have you ever heard about the 12th house in Astrology?
Well, I will go straight to the point this time. The 12th house has to do with the "Unknown" and by "unknown" I mean anything that is difficult to explain because apparently there is not a logic cause behind the facts. And why am I talking about this 12th house in astrology? Well, I just wanted to share the fact that Pluto is in Capricorn and it is transiting exactly on my twelve house cusp, right now. Pluto has to to do with unconscious powerful revelations, and Capricorn rules the skin. So I think the Universe is printing signs on me. Remember all the paintings related to bacteria, cells and microscopic life that I used to paint? (Some of my spots resembles some of my paintings somehow)

Well, I have stopped doing it for a while because I haven't had enough time. So, I have been holding all this organic images in my mind, without a canvas for letting them out. So, maybe is just that my need to express them is so strong (Pluto) that unconsciously I am creating the same images but on my body... (in a psychosomatic way). It may sound crazy I know... but that's my stand. I mean, given the unknown causes for Pityriasis Rosea, we can all build are own hypothesis. And here is mine: Pityriasis Rosea is a Tattoo created by our own organism, when the individual is blocking the creative power. Maybe yes. Maybe not.

And my own treatment is: Vicco go back to yor painting! Let the images out in a white canvas please!

Note: OMG! I just realized that my blog has pityriasis rosea too... look at the background!!! Lol
