・ ┉ ൦┉。 A new season begins in Palm Garden, ushering in a moment of harmony and balance. 


The Rings : ・ ┉ ൦┉。 (18 May - 17 Jun) 

Melodious - Captivating - Refined

At the equator of Palm Garden, a beautiful set of colorful rings span the planet, shimmering in the night sky, they waver and flow around the planet, creating a beautiful light show when light is low. Creating a twilight throughout each night of this season, Inklings are reminded of the sheer beauty of the world around them and the wonders it holds. Inklings can often be found enjoying the wider world outside their niches and meditating during this season.

Inklings that emerge under the sign of The Rings are captivating and musical. They see the harmony in complexity and add beauty and refinement to their works. They can sometimes be brash or come off as arrogant, but often struggle when working alone. 


The Rings rise above Palm Garden’s horizon, filling day and night with glorious bands of color. This season of the Inklings’ year is a culmination - a crescendo - of creative sharing. Inklings gather far and wide across the labyrinth of niches, in the plazas, the forum, and feast at the Primordial soup kitchen as they share their work and insights as the end of the year is nearly upon them. It is a time for proposals, artistic expression and inspired visions of the future Inklings want to see. 

It’s a good time to: Share your experience It’s a bad time to: Stay home



  • By sharing your stories, you understand your own experience better. 

  • If you speak up, your ideas can spread throughout the world. 

  • If you share your vision for the future, you may find that others want to bring that future to life with you. 


What do the stars have in store for your Inkling during The Rings?

The Eclipse ━●━ (18 Jun - 17 July) Oblique, Exciting, Connecters

The Convergence ˚•♦•˚(18 July -  17 Aug)  Balanced, Harmonious, Observant

The Binary 。:●൦:* (18 Aug - 17 Sep)  Supportive, Social, Collaborative

You’ll rock out this season to a tempo all your own. You might take the lead in a dance, or set the mood for a room, but keep an eye on those around you. If the vibes aren’t meshing, be content to go solo to the beat of your own drum. 


The Nova  ━ ⋇ ━ (18 Sep - 17 Oct) Expansive, Esoteric, Visionary

The Nebula ◦∘  ൦∘ ◦ (18 Dec - 17 Jan) Broad-minded, Resourceful, Dreamy

While the Rings feel like perfect and final works of art, as heavenly bodies go, they’re young and some of the most changeable stars in the sky.

Your ego can take a back seat this season, North Stars, as you’re surrounded with a harvest of art and meaning. Your goals still in progress can take a pause as you share what you’ve achieved. You may discover you’ve done more than you thought. 


The Field .・:*:・゚(18 Apr - 17 May) Adventurous, Dynamic, Curious
