The Avatar Rises with Help from Iron Jim or is that Saturn-Neptune
The incarnation of a Hindu deity, especially Vishnu, in human or animal form.
An embodiment, as of a quality or concept; an archetype: the very avatar of cunning.
Among people working on virtual reality and cyberspace interfaces, an avatar is an icon or representation of a user as in gaming.
One of the greatest Movie Director's of our time, James Francis Cameron (born August 16, 1954) with an extreme Sun-Pluto conjunction in Leo and specializing in the genre of action/science fiction films announced the filming of his latest blockbuster to come Avatar. On a week when Mars (action) is getting together with Pluto (obsessive to extremes) 20th Century Fox finally greenlighted James Cameron's sci-fi epic ''Avatar,'' due in 2009
Cameron who has maid a feature film since the Titanic nine years ago (top grossing film of all time @ US$1.8 billion) whose natal Mars @ 27 Sagittarius is feeling the full impact of the transit.
It should also be remembered that James (aka Iron Jim) is also a member of the Mars Society an international space advocacy non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the exploration and settlement of Mars
Pluto as I said in my last jog: Pluto is connected to (wealth, cf. plutocracy), and, under the original name Plutus, was considered by the Romans as the giver of gold, silver, and other subterranean substances. This film is purported to be one of most technically complex productions (Saturn enters Virgo this Fall) ever mounted, as it will make extensive use of cutting edge 3-D, computer animation, and motion capture f/x technology and may cost up to US$200.
From the realms of Cameron's imagination (Neptune) came previous conceptions like The Terminator I and II, the sequel to Alien, The Abyss, Titanic and Dark Angel (TV series). All these large projects also required the powerful organization of Saturn - like many famous directors Cameron has a wide Neptune @ 23Libra contact to Saturn @ 3 Scorpio. Big news this summer is that Saturn-Neptune will meet in exact opposition @ 22 Leo-Aquarius on June 25th - falling close to his powerful natal Sun-Pluto @ 23-24 Leo
The movie which begins filming in April is an original screenplay penned by Cameron that follows a battle-scarred war vet who travels to another planet inhabited by an alien race with a distinctly different language and culture from Earth - real Plutonic Galactic Center stuff. But what there is more Cameron whose Saturn ruled Chiron @ 24 Capricorn opposes Uranus @ 25 Cancerthis is an opposition which is said to bridge worlds (alien and human) and offer healing and freedom on a massive level. We will see...
