In episode 314 astrologers Chris Brennan and Leisa Schaim talk about some movies that contain astrological themes or allegories that are relevant to astrologers.
Most of the discussion focuses on films that are not directly related to astrology, but instead focus on themes that are relevant to astrologers, such as fate, free-will, and the nature of time.
We also touch on some documentaries that are interesting from an astrological perspective, which focus on topics such as the nature versus nurture debate, or the issue of twins.
While most of the movies discussed are ones we enjoyed, towards the end we touch on a few films that address astrology more directly, but were not necessarily particularly good.
Please note that there are lots of spoilers in this discussion, so if you haven’t seen the films listed below, then you probably shouldn’t listen to our discussion unless you are alright with hearing the ending ahead of time.
