Activity 1:
The sun-shadow sentences will be written around the edges of the mandala, which will provide a frame for the drawing. The following directions are for the writing of the sun-shadow sentences:

1. Write a single sentence using all of your sun signs. See how you can weave all of those images together in one sentence.
2. Weave your 7 sun-shadow signs into 1 sentence.
3. Write both of these sentences around the outside of your mandala.

Examples of Personal Mandala Sun-Shadow Sentences:

1) The thirteen daisies on the square table were set on fire by the canary that lived among the rocks.
The seven red sapphires were stolen from the pyramid by an eagle that lived in the mighty oak, and were cast into the ice.

2) The circle of sunlight pierced the redwood branches to reveal a lone dolphin swimming just beneath the surface of the diamond blue ocean.
The lines of moonlight cast shadows upon the unkept sheep pasture which, once graced with a myriad of orange roses, now lay empty, dotted with rock and puddles from yesterday’s rain.
