double_dutchess: (Spuffy Touched)
[personal profile] double_dutchess
Here is a whole bunch of icons that I had not yet posted to my LJ. I made them for the past round of [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy, which had as its theme "A New Era". That made me think of the Aquarius song from Hair (This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius), so I decided to make icons for each zodiac sign. Each icon comes in two versions: one with, and one without the zodiac symbol. There are also a few extras.

ETA: I added a few more extras for the Pisces symbol icon, because I've never been happy with that one (the version without symbol is fine).

Teaser:
Taurus Libra Aquarius


Icons with zodiac symbols
Aries Taurus Gemini Cancer
Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio

Alternative versions

Leo alt 1 Leo alt 2
Pisces alt 1 Pisces alt 2


Notes

  • Aries is ruled by the planet Mars (god of war!) and its element is fire. So this one had to be feisty fighty Spuffy.

  • Taurus = bull; this one is obvious, I should think.

  • Gemini are the twins, so I wanted an image of Buffy and Spike side by side. Randy and Joan fit the bill.

  • Cancer is associated with night and emotion; but mostly, I thought the symbol's shape fit this image of them.

  • Leo = lion, ruled by the sun. So this had to be Spike making like a lion from The Harsh Light of Day.

  • Virgo: Buffy and Spike in their virgin years, with Buffy in a historical outfit like William.

  • Libra is represented by scales, so this is Buffy as Lady Justice, based on images from the Buffy tarot set illustrated by Paul Lee.

  • Scorpio is supposed to be a sexy sign, as it "rules the genitals" (?!)

  • Sagittarius is the archer, so I just had to use the iconic image of Buffy with the crossbow from The Harvest.

  • Capricorn is Buffy's star sign, so I wanted to use a Buffy birthday image.

  • Aquarius: the comics are a new era for Spuffy, and what better comic image to use than Spike's mental image of Buffy as a flower child! Art by Rebekah Isaacs.

  • Pisces has water as its element, and people with this sign are supposed to be sensitive dreamers.

Still so brilliant an idea, and so excellently executed! I love the explanation you added! My faves are still (I guess :) )Taurus, Gemini (which I already snagged as alt), Leo, Sagittarius and Capricorn. Which I still absolutely have to snag for Birthday Wishes...(I have to increase the number of userpics ...*sigh*. But on the plus side I can snag more of these fabulous icons then :) )
