Cinematic Karmic Aversion Syndrome (CKAS) is for real. Let’s just broadly agree that there is no reason why souls would not transmogrify through time, across lives. That reincarnation makes just as much sense as Scientology’s aliens or God with a grey beard presiding over patriarchal heaven with clouds.
And that why wouldn’t we sometimes remember snatches of other times or have some limbic-brain imprint? In astrology, this is the domain of the South Node*. And at times when that energy is strong – like the last week – you are more prone to strange recalls or karmic echoes.
CKAS is when you irrationally don’t like seeing vivid depictions (and cinema tends to be the most immersive and intense of depictions) of a particular era, probably because your existence in that era was particularly stressful.
Personally, i have CKAS about ANYTHING Victorian Era. It doesn’t matter who is in it or how brilliant the script, anything set in the Victorian era actually gives me jaw-ache so intense it shoots up my occipitals. Even a maidenhair fern or a bit of filigree lace and someone with a fan or a tight bun does it. Gaslights, cobblestones, any of it. Even as a child, Black Beauty nearly gave me a nervous breakdown.
Whereas I will happily sit through even the most D-listed movie set in Ancient Rome or Restoration era. Maybe i reigned then. Maybe I somehow made it work.
What about you? Do you have CKAS with any particular era?
