Neptune rules the movies and the movie industry. In honor of His station retrograde in Pisces, we’ll take a look at the astrological context of the film industry, starting with its technological and commercial roots in the late nineteenth century. Along the way we’ll look at some notable events and players whose talents and lives left a lasting mark on the destiny of the industry. Finally, we’ll offer some astrological observations about perhaps why Hollywood films and filmmakers in particular have historically grappled with the same old issues of morals and sex—both on screen and off—from the scandals of the 1920s up to and including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. We’ll also pay some special attention to the asteroid Goddess Juno’s involvement in the #MeToo Movement.
