** "Unicorns remind us of who we truly are. While angels work through the Heart, unicorns work with the Soul. Their horn can be likened to a magic wand, pouring out divine energy. Wherever they direct this light, healing takes place" ~ words by Diana Cooper ♥♥ Blessing of a Unicorn ~ Beautiful Art by Sanne van Kalken
Is there anything more magical than a unicorn? The answer, to me, is no. Unicorns are pure and beautiful, too pure for this world, really (literally), and they deserve all of the love. Unicorns represent color and magic and aesthetically pleasing vibes, which makes them perfect for a DIY Halloween costume. What makes them even more perfect for a costume is that they literally are not real, meaning you can define them however you want. Want to be a gothic unicorn who shuns color?
“Woman, then, stands in patriarchal culture as a signifier for the male other, bound by a symbolic order in which man can live out his fantasies and obsessions through linguistic command by imposing them on the silent image of a woman still tied to her place as the bearer of meaning, not maker of meaning.”— Laura Mulvey, excerpt from “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema”
