Pan's Labyrinth and Stars

In a comment she wrote yesterday, Kikipotamus the Hobo mentioned a new movie, Pan's Labyrinth. I had never heard of it before and was curious, especially as it had the word Labyrinth in the title ... so I typed it into Google.

The music on the site is lovely. When I first clicked and heard it, I thought "Wow ..." It is epic yet intimate, overwhelming yet comforting. (The first association that came to mind was the soundtrack for the movie The Piano)

Pan's Labyrinth is pitched as a 'fairytale for adults' and the trailer gives glimpses into what promises to be a highly imaginative, fantastical and magical visual landscape. Looking at it makes me think of Harry Potter which, unlike most of the world, I never read and only halfway watched the first movie ... But Pan's Lab looks intriguing, plus it won awards for Best Foreign Language Films (and I like foreign language and independent type films). I would definitely want to check it out and see how it 'pans' out.

While on Kiki's website to get the address to make the link, I tried out the little quiz on her post ... and I turned out to be a 'Star'. What a starry Christmas: from the Spec star card with its nine wishes to the stars spilling to this:

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

Aaaaa! I've got goose bumps all over! You are definitely a star. One need only spend a moment on your blog or glance at a photo of you to see it. Your Star energy comes through so powerfully and clearly. K

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
