Just a quick update that The Spiritual Sun website has gotten a bit of a redesign, the aim of which has been to give it a new look that better conveys the history, scope, and depth of the ancient knowledge this website is striving to bring to light — something a bit more “grounded” that connects this website to its ancient heritage.
Dara Percival, the designer The Spiritual Sun worked with, shared a bit about the inspiration behind the new look:
“The updated site design reflects The Spiritual Sun’s link to the ancient cultures that practiced the Religion of the Sun. The earthy colors and sun symbols from various parts of the world are a nod to the powerful lasting messages these practitioners left for us not only in their sacred texts but also in their symbology and megalithic structures.”
The symbols incorporated into the background of the site are some of the most common ones found at ancient sacred sites, artwork, and on various ancient artifacts all over the world. Some of these symbols include the winged serpent with a sun disc, the lozenge / diamond symbol, the swastika, the double spiral, the three rings of the source of creation, etc. Many of these symbols are explained (or will be added shortly) on the symbols of the Religion of the Sun page.
The new design also incorporated some of the feedback and suggestions we’ve received over the last little while, such as for example making the text on the site easier to read, etc.
The site is still being updated and there are lots of small things that will be getting tweaked and fixed over the next little while, but the “backbone” of the new look is now in place.
Many thanks to Dara for her design work, to Jordan for taking care of the technical side of the process, and to everyone else that helped with the update!
