Featherfern Zodiac

As an avid sky watcher I follow the night sky from season to season. The constellations of the zodiac are as familiar as old friends, always in the same place on the same month each year.
I have made several mandalas using the symbols of the zodiac as design elements. But this fern mandala had natural "windows" in it that invited me to draw the constellations as well as the corresponding symbols.
