I love astrology. I find it fascinating, mysterious, informative, and insightful. For, our solar system and planets in it are about energies and their interconnectedness and influence on people and the world. The astrologists say: ‘What above is below,’ referring to the sky – our solar system - and the planet Earth. Recently, contemplating on changes that are currently occurring and a major shift in energies that will take place on 21st December 2020, I had an inspiration to look at movies from the astrological point of view. Namely, how prevailing energies of zodiac signs effect focus and themes of movies created.
To demonstrate the shift in themes and focus that will occur in December 2020 and will last for the next 200 years, I would like first to look at what energies have prevailed for the past 200 years and are now fading away. The energies in question are of the following zodiac signs, houses, and planets: Capricorn (10th house, planet Saturn), Taurus (2nd house, planet Venus), and Virgo (6th house, planet Mercury). All three signs are connected to the earth element and express tangible, material, and physical. They are also responsible for certain areas of life and energies expressed there.
Please note that, though these energies will go out of focus for the next 200 years, it does not mean they will cease to exist completely. It simply means that there will be no major focus on them.
Capricorn, 10th house, and planet Saturn
