Star Wars Spread
On This Day
George Lucas used archetypal mythological constructs to create Star Wars. The film has been compared to the practices and beliefs of many major religions, including Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity.
Star Wars was released on this day in 1977.
Summation of Spread
Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda live alone, sequestered in isolation, until Luke discovers them. Their powerful knowledge is unleashed when Luke shows he is ready to learn. The Hermit’s lamp is indicative of all the knowledge he would share with those who are ready—a reminder of the age-old concept that when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
This epic film uses the Force, described by Obi-Wan Kenobi as the energy field surrounding and enveloping all living things. Like magic, the Force binds all organic beings and the galaxy together. The Star Wars Spread uses the concept of the Force to inquire about the electric, magical energy coursing through your life.
