The Moon is waxing to the first of two Aquarius Full Moons, and I'm finding this movie Cloud Atlas perfectly in synch. The movie spans galaxies and times, and is full of Aquarian themes: transhumanism, quantum effects, rebellion, brotherly and sisterly love, the collaboration of life... There's also a compelling theme of fighting for freedom, even if you've never known it before.
In my favorite scene, and the one that made me think of the Aquarian parallels, Robert Frobisher says, "And all becomes clear. Wish I could make you see this brightness. Don't worry, all is well. All is so perfectly, damnably well. I understand now, that boundaries between noise and sound are conventions. All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended. One may transcend any convention, if only one can first conceive of doing so. Moments like this, I can feel your heart beating as clearly as I feel my own, and I know that separation is an illusion. My life extends far beyond the limitations of me"
The title conjures the etheric terrain across which we move through time. I highly recommend this film for the Aquarian-tinged adventure into August...

I'm thinking it's a rare one to watch twice...
I read that Roger Ebert watched it three times, and each time it gave him another deeper perspective than the time prior. I think I will definitely give it another go.

Yeah, and how that gorge is sometimes an illusion...the modified part seemed eerily prescient. Enjoy your Aqua Full Moon!
