19 Feb Episode 19 // Fairytale Dystopia: Blade Runner & the Saturn-Uranus Square
Welcome back to STARGAZER: a podcast about astrology, alchemy & magic.
In this episode, I’m joined again by my husband and co-host Andrei to carry on our discussion from last week about the esoteric meaning behind fairytales by exploring the gnostic dimensions of the dystopian science fiction classic Blade Runner.
In the first half, we share our thoughts on the ongoing square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus, reflecting on how it has made a feel on an individual level and what it means for the collective in the context of the recent $GME short squeeze and the Great Reset.
Here’s Russell Brand’s video on the Great Reset that Andrei mentions…
…and here’s Keith Gill’s testimony before a congressional hearing on the $GME short squeeze.
The second half is dedicated to an analysis of the film Blade Runner and its source material, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick. We discuss how its globalist and technocratic aspects make it a perfect film to contemplate for the Aquarian Age and how it shows, through a fairytale-like morality, the virtue of being human in an inhuman world.
I also draw comparisons between Blade Runner and stories like The Little Mermaid and Pinocchio, and we look at its relationship to the Romantic-era through the lens of William Blake, Mary Shelley and Uranus in Taurus.
This was a great discussion, and definitely an episode you don’t want to miss!
