So I can’t wait to see the new Conan. Jason Momoa as the ultimate Leo has already been covered here.
I was not at all interested in the previous Conan from yonks ago. I blame my Paleo diet/exercise routine, Mars-Pluto-Uranus in the 8th House (Paleo in and of itself) plus Pluto in Capricorn.
Why the latter? Well, clearly we’re heading into a challenging era of global growth and shifts, right…This bit is like the cleansing crisis of a detox or something. Or, financially, when people add up how much debt they’re in for real and grok the reality.
And when this sort of atmosphere is abroad, superheroes thrive. Forget about stupid hemlines being an indicator of the market. It’s superheroes. People don’t want to go to the movies and watch anyone going mad, broke or even being existential. They can get all that crap from the news. They want heroes conquering the forces of evil, darkness and despair.
Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and all had their origins in times of depression & war. Now you might want to note the spike in the number of superhero movies in the pipeline. More Thor, the Immortals (based on Theseus) Conan, some more Supermans & Batmans, a new Flash Gordon…just heaps.
Think also of the rioters in London being the negative manifestation of Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Cap but imagine what the positive manifestation of that is going to look like. Not so hunky as Conan, my new fave Leo guy, but warriors (of both genders) using their powers for good and to usher in new, better and more fair economy/environment.
