I’m working on designing a piece that will be emblematic of the four seasons. I’m going to have a four-armed solar cross in the center of a circle, with one quadrant for each season. What colors do you associate with the various seasons?
I’ve tried doing a traditional Wiccan representation, based on the elements, and although winter = earth summer = fire seems to work, it looks very un-seasonal with winter in green and spring in blue.
Currently, I’m kind of liking white=winter, green=spring, yellow-orange=summer, brown=autumn… but I’d really love to find a traditional set of colors, or ones that have a particular reasoning behind them. I can’t quite get my mind around the Medicine Wheel representation either, although the graphic looks a lot like one.
I don’t have enough graphic complexity to put in symbols that would make it clear, like snowflakes and new leaves; I wish I did!.
