Star rangoli designs for Friday simple


Aadi velli special kolam | Best aadi velli kolam 

This combination of stars with lines give a beautiful traditional effect for the Aadi ( called Ashada in Hindi , Marathi ) month  which is famous in Tamil Nadu for beautiful kolams, Pooja for Amman ( Durga ) .   Actually the celebrations last for nearly four months in Tiruverkadu  Karumari Amman temple where there are different types of kudam taken to the temple every Sunday during this season

Star rangoli designs are quite popular in this art and also for Friday .  It is our tradition to draw a padi kolam for Fridays.  So I have started with a basic padi kolam square pattern ( some draw it with curved lines ) .  For the square I have used 4 lines and for the stars I have used two lines.  Then decorated the star with straight line borders - again two of them to make a total of 4 lines for the stars also.  Traditionally we use 2,4 or 5 lines ( In our family we use five lines also though some prefer even number of lines ).  Coming to the rangoli ,  The gaps are filled with birds patterns.  The centre of the padi kolam I usually fill with diagonal lines and dots .  For this design I have again used a star pattern at the centre.  Decorate inside or outside with kaavi border.

The next kolam uses stars , lotus and birds , the lotus flower associated with Goddess Laxmi and Friday.  So we can have this as one of our Navratri kolam or Varalakshmi Pooja rangoli designs.

The next star rangoli or nakshatra kolam uses a dot grid .  The steps through  pictures
The dot pattern is 12 dots - 2 rows then 11,10,9 , 8 and 9 again.

The stars are drawn first ,  using the dot grid.

I try to show a close up of the rangoli with the hand in many images for two reasons,  one we can get a better idea  and two the position of the fingers holding the rangoli powder is visible for those who may need it.  Also there is one more reason ,  it is easy to show at which step or which direction the rangoli is in process.

Star rangoli , small

A very common rangoli that is seen in temples , mutts.  The star patterns appear inter twined .  In Puja room it is our tradtion to draw two or four lines.  The images show the steps as usual , as one can expect in Rangolisansdots where in many posts I have shared the pictures showing the intermediate steps .
