There are some 88 recognized constellations in our skies. Here’s what a few of them have taught me.

    Shriya this is so wonderful! These collages were all beautifully put together and I love that you included yourself in every single one. It makes it feel much more personal and makes the accompanying lessons feel much more genuine and thoughtful.

    (also ugh i’m acrophobic too. it sucks major.)

    This is so perfect. I’m a big-time star gazer, and I feel a very personal connection to all my favorite constellations. I love Draco (the dragon), because of the way it sits perfectly between Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. I like to think that it’s their protector.

    This is so beautiful, I absolutely love the collages and the style of them — it reminds me of Georges Melies’ style. Also, thanks for introducing me to astronomy!

    Beautiful, Shriya. Love the idea, and the collages. There’s a lot of meaning for me.

    OK but you don’t wanna be Cassiopeia because her vanity almost got her kingdom destroyed by a giant sea monster. And then she was turned into stone for being a jerk to her daughter.

    In absolute love love with this! Fantastic collages! :))
