The Occult Meaning Behind Star Wars’ Rey

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family. 

You know, I have been watching all of the reviews for this new Star Wars film and ever since the prequels, I have lost interest in this franchise but, something interesting happened today. Most of the reviews for this film have been mixed, while most of the fans are disgusted. This made me think, why would they spend millions of dollars to put out a film that they know is not going to do well? While some people are screaming that is this new social justice campaign, I thought it had to be more to it.  Here it was the last Terminator bombed and now it looks like this film will too, which made me see that whoever is backing these films don’t care about the money. So, it is not about money.

Then, I came across a review which led me to a report called What Research Says: Gender Typed Toys (link appears below). 

I remember the last time my brother and I played with Star Wars action figures, it was when the Empire Strikes Back came out. We had the snow beast and ironically we played with the masked characters like Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Yoda but not Luke or Han Solo.

Now, when I think back on it now,  Star Wars was just for boys because back in the day, that was the targeted audience. Period. So, when they created these characters, they had very distinctive attributes for boys to pick. There were only a few female characters in the original franchise so no one really wanted to play with these characters.  

So, when I look back at it now, I noticed was that the reason we only played with those figurines was that “psychologically” these were the characters that we identified with. Understand, the first reason we did not identify with them was that Black people were not represented.  When Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams character) appeared in Star Wars, my brother and I did not want to be him because he betrayed the good guy to save his butt. In fact, sad to say Lando Calrissian was sort of like Winston in Ghostbusters, a token comic relief character that most Black boys didn’t like either.  It wasn’t until it was recognized that people liked these token character, that they began to develop more of a storyline for Lando and Winston in the sequels.

Interesting, most blonde and red boys identified with Luke, while dark-haired boys like Han Solo.  For the record, I am not saying that this was the case all the time but it seemed to be the norm. 

The second reason we liked Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers, Bobba Fett, Chewbacca, Yoda, etc. was because these were all male characters with distinct abilities that allowed them to control their fate.  For instance, never mind that Bobba Fett was considered a villain, he was respected by even the most feared villain, Darth Vader. That’s how boys think.

Girls and women do not think this way according to the Gender Typed Report.  Girls and women associate with things based upon attractiveness and appearance.  In other words, whereas boys choose toys based upon their aggressiveness and combativeness. Girls choose toys based upon how they want to look, which carries on into adulthood. The interesting thing, the study found that moderately masculine toys help to develop in boys and girls “building, spatial and science skills”  while moderately feminine toys develop “nurturance and domestic skills”.

This brings me to the character Rey. As everyone has indicated, she is incredibly powerful with no freakin’ training, which is what is called a Mary Sue. But, when I looked deeper, I noticed something. There is no character development for this Rey character. We are supposed to just accept her as she is…Let me say that again.  We are supposed to accept her as she is…Did you get it?

That’s right ladies and gentlemen. First, this Rey character was created for girls and women to buy into this franchise.  For three movies, we have been looking at the same desert looking girl with the perfect skin tone, perfect teeth, perfect muscles, wielding a lightsaber perfectly because she is a ritualized attempt to reestablish that this particular female is the epitome of strength and beauty. Yes, we are looking at the new and revised TRADEMARK.

Like any good trademark, it has to be the same logo repeated over and over again. Think about it, how many times have you seen Coca Cola, McDonald’s, etc. change their logo?  How many times have you seen this Rey character change her outfit?

So, why are “they” promoting this trademark?

To encourage women to get into the only “Force” traditions they can. Witchcraft. It is a rallying call to get into European (the Rey actress is British) witchcraft.

Now, you might be asking, “What’s wrong with that?” Well, it is that all other traditions especially African traditions that are demonized.  Most of the time, African traditions are portrayed as evil and wicked practices because we understand that Truth is subjective. Meaning what is right for one may not be right for another, which is the reason our enslaved ancestors conjured spirits to cursed plantation crops, to kill slave owners, or revolt against an entire corrupted system as was the case in Haiti. While, European traditions are depicted as having a bad or good witch who is typically loving, fun and powerful traditions as in the case of Charmed, Practical Magic, Bewitch,  Witches of Eastwick, Hansel and Gretel, The Wizard of Oz, and so on.  

Remember, movies are just modified ritual used to program certain behaviors in the general public.  So, if you don’t like the movies remember that it was not made for you.  

Anyway, that’s my thoughts. Feel free to leave a comment if you agree or disagree.
