I am asked about these all the damn time, their hidden meaning, the astronomy and astrology; so, here is a little teaser from Cinema Symbolism 4. More radio coming very soon – stay tuned. Have a great weekend!

Disney’s lady in blue, or costuming the daybreak in 2015: the titular Cinderella (Lily James) “♫ lights the morning sky with burning love ♫” as Elvis Presley sang in a luxurious azure dress, for she is Ushas, the dawn maiden of the Hindus and Aurora of the Greeks. Her Prince Charming is the sun, ever seeking to make the break of day his bride, and how the envious stepsisters and the cruel stepmother are the clouds and the night, striving to keep the dawn and sun apart, frustrating coincidentia oppositorum, their happy ending.

Happy Holidays!

June 24th is Midsummer, the celebration of the summer solstice (longest day of the year), the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist (Mercury-Hermes, the Lord of Summer), Freemasonry’s Birthday (June 24th, 1717) and currently (2022) a fantastic astronomical alignment in the morning, eastern horizon (visible to the end of the month).

Da Vinci paints St. John the Baptist (ca. 1513) as Hermes or Mercury (qua the Hermetic, Alchemical androgyne), the divine messenger.
