Interstellar’s Deep Meditation On Saturn, Time And The Kubrick Convergence

interstellarTaking the leap.

As we sat in the dark, waiting for “Interstellar” to begin, there were some interesting coming attractions. The first that caught my eye was the latest, robot-feel-good flick, “Chappie” directed by Neil Blokamp (District 9 and Elysium), which stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Die Antwoord’s , Yolandi Visser. Without knowing too much about “Chappie” the trailer plot (filled in by yours truly) seems to be about a robot who is rejected, turned out onto the streets and befriended by street people. Can you see the rejected people/robot trope? In the course of a three-minute trailer, you can also see Chappie get humanized and beloved by his fellow rejects. Then it looks like Chappie gets in trouble, leads some sort of rebellion, and does so heroically. Get ready for scores of films comin’ acha , where the robots will be more evolved, beloved and human than humans. Time to soften us up and accept the coming robot race.

Neil Blokamp is making a career out of augmentation, mutation and automation. In District 9, Blokamp takes us into a world where a human cop morphs into an alien thanks to the alien blasting the cop with its DNA.

District 9 is a reality play on racism and exclusionary culture wrapped in a Sci-Fi flick.

Matt Damon plays an augmented human in “Elysium” where he becomes a transhuman super soldier who is going to take on the 1%, living in an upper atmospheric utopia.

Now here comes “Chappie” and another, Dickensian take by Blokamp on anything other than a straight human.

Then there’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” a far less passive take on Moses and the flight from Egypt. Ridley Scott directs, Christian Bale leads his people, blah, blah, blah. Continue reading “Interstellar’s Deep Meditation On Saturn, Time And The Kubrick Convergence”

Pluto In Sag Kids, Jaden And Willow Smith And Saira Blair Arrive On Time As Saturn Moves Into Sag

130114-jaden-willow-smithIt’s time for Pluto in Sag kids

As Saturn moves into Sagittarius, we’re starting to pick up signals already, as the Pluto in Sag children are beginning to make themselves known. Saira Blair, just 18, Cancer Sun (July 11th) was born with Pluto in Sag at 0 degrees retrograde, which is significant, since Miss Blair was not only recently elected to the West Virginia legislature, making her the youngest elected official in the USA, but also illustrates a return (retrograde) to more conservative values. With her True Node in Libra, she was elected during her nodal return. Balance, justice and equality are the elements that she will aspire towards. However, she will be tested over the course of the next five years as Saturn will oppose her Venus and Mars conjunction in Gemini. Saturn is the old guard in opposition to her Gemini youth. This could be a difficult phase for her as she will feel too old for her peers and too young for her colleagues. Then, when Saturn transits into Capricorn, it will oppose her Sun and Mercury in the sign of the crab. This will be the confrontation of institutional forces, the old guard again, the oligarchy confronting her conservative (Cancerian) values. With Jupiter in Capricorn will she allow herself to be bought and sold or will she buck the system?

Then there’s Jaden and Willow Smith’s now infamous interview where the talk about time travel, slowing down time, the dreariness and drudgery of school. This is what happens when you’re raised by a high priestess of Scientology, and a devoted follower of Pablo Coelho. Their ideas were interpreted by a university professor of philosophy. The results were quite interesting as he related their concepts to ideas by Descartes and Du Bois. While most of the world was scratching their heads, he was able to decode their obtuse abstractions. This will be one of the hallmarks of this generation as they evolve unusual theories and transformational philosophies. These are the kids of the big idea and as Blair has shown, also the big ideal. They’re just getting started.

The Coz, The Boz And Adrian Peterson, Uranus In Aries Shocks The System

Uranus has been doing a number on men if you haven’t noticed. One of my last posts focused on Adrian Peterson (Aries) and the disturbing details surrounding the excessive discipline he meted out for at least three of his young children. Peterson’s explanation for using a switch on his five-year-old was that, that was how he was disciplined, or was “given a whoopin’. The league suspended on the third week of the season and now, thanks to his very deep pockets and ace attorney, Rusty Hardin, Peterson basically pled out. What can usually take up to a year for a trial date, happened with an Aries-like alacrity.

For now Peterson has had his season officially ended, pending appeal, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended Peeterson, without pay for the rest of the season and is forcing him into a therapeutic program. Here is the most astrologically relevant piece the things that Goodell said in his statement, as it relates back to Peterson’s Aries/First House Mercury in Aries 18 degrees first house along with the extremely rare and potent Aries Sun at 1 degree on the ASC, also at 1 degree. centric chart. Here is what he said; “When indicted, you acknowledged what you did but said that you would not ‘eliminate whooping my kids’ and defended your conduct in numerous published text messages to the child’s mother.” And Goodell added this; “You also said that you felt ‘very confident with my actions because I know my intent.’ These comments raise the serious concern that you do not fully appreciate the seriousness of your conduct, or even worse, that you may feel free to engage in similar conduct in the future.”

We are in a brave new world and the energy, actions and psyche of the male is on trial and very definitely in public view which leads to Bill Cosby. Continue reading “The Coz, The Boz And Adrian Peterson, Uranus In Aries Shocks The System”
