I am truly impressed with the movies and the life of the Russian film director Andrei Tarkovsky. Looking simultaneously at his and my chart helps me actually organize my attraction to his opus:
Our Saturns are conjoined on the same degree of Aquarius (32’- 62’ ). I translated his book “The Sealed Time” for about two years. If one of Aquarian traits is “Discontent”, he found a way to stop/freeze time in his work, but also to record it with the feel for its “natural flow” (vs. the Hollywood type of time manipulation). This is utterly fascinating to me, and when watching his movies, I feel like going to the spring of time.
My moon in the 12th is conjoined by his Mercury Lilith conjunction (in Aries). His conversations are absolutely enigmatic to me, with the feelings of a prophet sharing his innermost visions. His portraying of an absent/present mother had always a very introspective effect on me.
My Uranus in the fifth conjoins precisely his Neptune (both in Virgo). I’m hypnotized by his imagery, and taken to an non-existing timeline, where everything is compressed and exposed to the randomness of change; transformation as a multidimensional puzzle.
Aries native can be such outlandish visionaries. With the Stellium of Sun, Uranus, Lilith and Mercury, Tarkovsky clearly foresaw the nuclear age we are entering, where we’ll need to redefine our intimacy and personal spaces, just like the characters in his movies.
