“Twilight is upon me, and soon, night must fall. That is the way of things. The way of the Force.” – Yoda

 

There is something captivating, almost theatrical, in the cyclical time between day and night. Symbolically, this splashy array of vibrant coloration, displays a state of vulnerability. Showing a significant contrast between light and darkness, between consciousness and unconsciousness; the hour of Twilight…..

The brightest light casts the darkest shadow….

In the vast darkness of night, only hints of loves light flickers.  It’s a continuous flow of hope, a beacon, calling the heart home.  The dark conceals this precious secret, one that defines the most sincere purities a love has ever known; for it is truly a gift.  The dark protects it from the poison that would cast judgment, cruelty, and ultimately, breeding doubt and jealousy.  Like a candles illuminating flame, love can be mesmerizing, leaving one blinded by wondrous beauty.  Or is this a perception based on an illusion? Should love trust the night and take comfort in its embrace? Or is that the illusion? Has it deceived us by its so called protection? Love, like a flame, is alive and it breathes. If you betray it, hold it in contempt, it suffocates and all that’s left is the dark…

Darkness, Light, Love, Shadows, Jealousy, Flame, Twilight, Night, and the inevitable, Fall. Interesting coupling of words, isn’t it? Yet, our entire Star Wars Saga revolves around ALL of them. Well, at least the Star Wars that we have now….”Always in motion the future is.”

Getting back to my intro: contrast between light and darkness, between consciousness and unconsciousness; the hour of Twilight…. This highlights my Favorite scene of the entire saga! The Brightest light casts the darkest shadow….

A true joining of the Force! A spiritual or mind (Telepathy?) connection of two beings …. Twin soulsTwin flames. As Anakin is sent to the Council Chambers of the Jedi Temple, he is flooded with whispers of the Dark Lord’s devious temptations and promises. In that precise moment, a quick flash, like that of flickering candle, Anakin senses his Twin Flame.

A doleful, Padme peers out her apartment window at the exact time he (Anakin) overlooks the twilight sky of Coruscant; it is then that they share, a True Joining in the Force! The heart and mind act as one, spiritually they are unified as the force takes full control … and they know. A rush of emotions thrashes over both of them. One specifically, out-weighs all the rest; fear. An immense amount fear and it eats at Anakin’s heart. “Lost? What do you mean?” It is then that she realizes just how serious his fears were. Unfortunately she is too late and that spark of connectivity is severed, but not before her voice is heard through Anakin’s mind, “I truly, deeply love you. Before I die, I want you to know.

Alone, cold, always and forever, without her….he shudders, “Padme, NO!”

Now, let’s delve a little deeper into this notion of twin flames/twin souls, shall we? Upon my research, I found this very intriguing article pertaining to our two, forbidden lovers. Well, I’ll allow you to be the judge of that …. “We all feel a sense of looking for true love because we long for the connection of this original mate. In the Bible we see marriage described…. “A man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife and they shall become one flesh” and also “what God has joined together let no man part.” The twin flame union is the only one in which this is literal instead of just figurative by contract of marriage. Twin flames are eternally married in their very being which no one can change.”–  Dr. Amy Queen.

Quite fascinating, isn’t it? And yet, there’s more. She continues to elaborate on a more spiritual level. “Twin flames are two souls (people) who were created in the beginning from one single soul unit with male and female aspects together. This singular soul unit was a unified energy sphere of male and female, and split into two souls creating the twin souls. A soul is made of energy much like electricity and is in essence a blue flame. This is why they are called twin flames. Each of these two souls after the split was a new and complete soul. The souls were polarized, one embodying mostly the male energy and one mostly the female energy of the original sphere. Each also retains a part of the other within them. The yin and yang symbol is one of the best illustrating this with each side holding a small dot of the other.”-Dr. Amy Queen.

The latter reminds me mostly of the bond between, Luke and Leia. They truly were their parents, Yin and Yang. Don’t you agree?

Let’s not stop there, symbolically there is much more to be revealed, to be connected. Both sets of twins, whether united by genetics or by fate, in the end it is Love that spiritually joins them. We see this continuously throughout the saga and practically almost always at the same time of day; the hour of twilight.

Just as Anakin and Padme reached out to one another in an hour of need, so do their children. Years later, as the sun begins to set upon a clouded city, Luke dangles from a weather vane. Alone and cold, he calls to the only person he knows will hear him, his twin soul, Leia. Is this a coincidence? I think not.

The maker has always given us symbols and meaning, not just in the names of characters or places, but in the visual aspects too. Speaking of which, would I be reaching if I were to mention that quite possibly these above scenarios tied into the, Twin Suns of Tatooine?

Think about it. We first see, young Luke gazing out on to the horizon as the two suns are setting; twilight. Wait, that’s really not his first twin sun sunset, is it? No. On a very similar eve, a robed Jedi delivers a small, precious package to a young couple on a moisture farm.  The wife greets the stranger with a warm smile and carries the baby over to where her husband stands. As the sky radiates in hues of crimson, the family admires the beauty of the binary sunset, as they cradle their new found hope. Yet, somewhere off in the distance, parsecs away, twilight descends across a miraculous and vast mountainous planet. A Queen is accompanied by her husband as they embrace their newfound future and dreams for a better tomorrow.  Is this similarity by chance?

Is the usage of twilight and twin flames/souls relevant? Was it an intention or a possible oversight? Before you come to a final consensus, let me just point out a few more instances where the two “twi’s” collide.

I made this for you. So you’d remember me. I carved it out of a japor snippet. It’ll bring you good fortune.” A young, Anakin Skywalker says this as he gives Padme the good luck charm. True, they’re up in deep space and all is dark around them except the stars. Yet, our Queen’s handmaiden is cloaked in vivid oranges and hues of sunshine yellow. Yes, Padme illuminates like the binary sunset on Tatooine! Our soul flames connect for the first time and it couldn’t have been portrayed in a more perfectly, poignantly approach than this scene (IMO).

Then there’s the “farewell scene” on Coruscant, where Anakin goes looking for Padme before he begins his Jedi Training. Upon reaching her quarters, he is saddened by the news that she has gone on an errand for the Queen of Naboo.  Anakin bows and looks down, then takes a peek at her. “I’m going to the Jedi Temple to start my training. I hope.” The regal Queen regards him with an expressionless stare as he continues to speak, “I may not see her again…and…I just wanted to say goodbye.” She puts on her best, political face and answers him: “We will tell her for you. We’re sure her heart goes with you.” All transpires as the hour of twilight engulfs the capital.

My last example of the flames/souls overlapping with the twilight skies is the prominent wedding scene. Not only do we have our bride and groom engulfed in a glorious sunset, but we also have another dynamic duo. Ok, they may be a little odd, but you can’t deny their prearranged importance; R2D2 and C3PO.

There’s so much to take in, to question, and to debate. With so much already on the table, let me just add another tidbit to the plate. The prefix “Twi” means two, as in Twin or Twilight. So I ask again, serendipity? Knowing George, I think “No Way!” See, in the very beginning, the early draft/script contained a description based on the “Son of Suns.”

“…And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as THE SON OF THE SUNS.”-Journal of the Whillis, 3:127

My feelings on the representation(s) of the symbolisms/meanings surrounding “Twi” (twin flames/twin souls and twilight)? Yes! Absolutely all were intended to show unison/unified/connection(s)!  Well, what do YOU think? Do you think, ‘yea or nay’? Also, do YOU have a favorite scene?

    Wow, lots of great connections there! Twilight and sunset are such major thematic moments in the saga– on purpose, I believe. My two personal favorites are the ones you mentioned in episodes 1 and 3. They’re just so beautiful.

    Thanks for all of your wonderful thoughts on our beloved saga! I wish I had time to say more but it’s getting past my padawan’s bed time. :-)♡♥♡♥

      Hello, Erica 🙂

      Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by ! I really do appreciate it.

      Yes, most definitely “thematic” and I do agree, on purpose. Both scenes are so vibrantly and poetically (not so much in dialog, but in colors/scenery/props/settings/and expressions) done.

    Wow…just…wow.

    You know how much I love to look deeper into the symbolism of things, the meaning behind the methods, and this is something I can honestly say I’ve never made as a connection!

    Twi…Twin…Twilight.

    Makes perfect sense when one looks at it from the perspective you have presented here! There are so many visually embedded “Easter eggs” that support exactly what you’re talking about. Some subtle, some not so subtle…but they are indeed THERE!

    I honestly never realized there were so many scenes that used the time of day we call twilight….

    Boom

    *mind blown*

    AMAZING insights, my dear! Fresh and innovative, indeed !!

    …will be back later so I can ponder this some more…

    MTFBWY, and HAVE FUN on the podcast!

    Wow, Fresh and innovative? That’s something I definitely don’t hear everyday….or any day, for that matter. Thank you!

    Connections and symbolism, are by far my most favorite things to analyze, over and over again in SW.

    George really knew what he was doing when connecting the puzzle pieces that make up every scene in the saga. Right down to the color scheme of the skyline. It does set the mood….those colors are so romantic, makes one swoon in awe….so yes, vulnerability is inevitable.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read my musings tonight, I really appreciate it! 🙂

    I have decided to make Twilight the first book I (re)read just for fun, post college, so I got all excited for a sec when I saw your twilight reference, lol! But the Star Wars Twi- ….. interesting, and a lot to think about.

    Since you’re exploring twos, doubles, pairs, duality, perhaps I can throw this is in. With the Sith at the time of Sidious, Maul, Vader, et al, why always two? Surely the Maker’s inclusion of the need for two Sith is also part of the whole theme of duality, perhaps to show what it means to “truly, deeply” act together by spotlighting the Dark Side’s inability to do pairs without manipulation and deceit. So many other pairs in GFFA work so beautifully together…Luke and Leia, the twin suns of Tatooine, all of the things you mention. But put two Sith together, and people die. Just a thought.

    Twilight IS a spectacular time, the one time of day where the lines blur between Dark and Light and neither is prominent. Talk about balance! It is often in the shades of gray that we find the most clarity. At least I do.

    Becca, who is Dr. Amy Queen?

    My favorite scenes? The Padme/Anakin looking across Coruscant one that you mention. The music in that scene is magnificent. And of course, there’s the bridge on Endor…Padme on the Bridge…sigh…

      Personally, I enjoy the “Twilight” novels MORE than the movies.

      Yes! The Sith are a twosome, aren’t they? 😉 No more, no less …. A Master and an apprentice.
      The duality, as you so eloquently put it, shroud themselves in darkness. They cling to the sea of shadows, their identity protected by the night as they bide their time…..and yes, in the end, people DO die.
      Intriguing thoughts! 🙂

      Balance! OMG! You’re right! Blurred lines, most definitely 🙂 Great catch, Pam.

      Not too sure lol! I just sort of stumbled across her article as I was researching “Twi’s” and found her musings/findings interesting.

        You have always been way too kind about the stuff I wrote in the SW blogosphere, Becca. Thank you. I wasn’t trying to call attention to my own stuff…just thinking about that scene and how much I felt Padme there on that bridge and how darned much I LOVE that scene.

    The ideas you presented – about twin souls – remind me of the Celtic/Christian understanding of an “anam cara” – Gaelic for “soul friend.” When certain souls are connected they form a rare sort of friendship (or love) – a bond that transcends all time and distance. (FYI: There’s an excellent book on the subject – ‘Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom’ by John O’Donohue https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/74445.Anam_Cara)

    You touched on my favorite scene (well, one of them) – Luke gazing out at the twin suns. The other is Luke’s “I am a Jedi, like my father before me” moment. I suppose that could tie into your theme as well…. Father and son – their souls connecting in those final moments together. It’s probably what saved Anakin in the end.

    Nice job. 🙂

      Love the idea of the “father – son” soul connecting, gave me chills 🙂

    Amazing insight! Kudos for organizing all of it into a cohesive post. You know, I think that we sometimes forget that it is not the characters and places and action scenes alone that tell a story. An effective story also requires the right setting, the right atmosphere. These things in and of themselves communicate emotions and thoughts better than words, much of the time. The best part is, we don’t even realize how big of an effect they have on us, can’t even always describe it. It’s just a feeling, a “disturbance in the Force.” Combine that with the other elements of a story, and you get something very powerful.

    Okay, I’m done being preachy. Point is, cool post. 🙂

    Twi…..Twin….Twilight…Twi-lek….Twiddling my thumbs trying to come up with a “twi” joke and failing….maybe next time.

    Great read, Becca, I especially love the concept of the twin suns of Tatooine playing into the theme of two. And of course now I’m noticing all the duos and twin-type pairings in the films. Han and Chewie are 2 sides of the smuggler coin, with Chewie serving as Han’s conscience. Luke and Leia are obviously biological twins, but again, one is a born leader and one learns to become a leader. R2 and 3PO, the rule of 2, yeah, I think you’re onto something here. Oh! and there were 2 Death Stars!!!! Ooooh….

    As for the twilight sequences, there’s a reason they call it “The Magic Hour.” It looks GREAT on camera and Lucas certainly made good use of it with his camera. The color choices that remind the eye of twilight are an interesting catch as well, and not one I would have made. Good eye!

    Yeah, I think you covered everything in your blog, I actually have nothing more to add. What a great topic, I look forward to reading more discussion from those more intelligent than me.

    In closing, I’d like to respond all of your musings with a quote one of my favorite comedies, “Animal House” : Can I buy some pot from you? 🙂

    Kidding 🙂 Looking forward to next month, and your appearance on the Cantina Cast!

      Hi Jeff 🙂

      So, you “twiddle?” :O I would have never guessed 😉

      You know, you intrigued me when you said that SW was full of “duos”. Especially because the way the characters are portrayed, we are meant to think of “3”, not 2.

      And 2 death stars, love it! 🙂 Someone had mentioned that to me on twitter as well. Funny, I didn’t think of that when I constructed this blog.

      Who is this, “Animal House” you speak of? lol! …. seriously.

      BTW, as we previously discussed, I love your entries 🙂 and please, let me know what you think of the podcast. Being in the Biz, I value your feedback 🙂

    Becca, such deep, deep musings. Wow! What a lot to contemplate! To digest! To discuss!

    🙂

    To be perfectly honest, I really have considered all those twilight scenarios as cinematic vehicles to move along the story, and basically be a visual indication of one chapter ending, another beginning (soon) even when they occurred in the middle of one of the films. It goes to my background — mostly due to the fact that I have a daughter who works in the film industry. The time of day, the weather, every aspect in a scene helps tell the story. A variety of symbols are used to convey any host of messages, and twilight (my favorite time of day, by the way!) can send a pretty darn powerful message! 🙂

    So, on the surface, that certainly is the way I look at George Lucas’ use of that particular time of day. 🙂

    However …

    I need to reread your blog, spend a bit of time thinking about it, and come back to the comment roll (if you’ll allow me to do this).

    Before I sign off for tonight, I’d just like to add that I am thrilled to hear your news about being a guest on The Cantina Cast. I absolutely loved your interview on CWK’s podcast earlier this year, and I know you’ll be great! 🙂 Congratulations!!! 🙂

    As Anakin is sent to the Council Chambers …

    But Becca, Anakin is NOT sent to the Council Chambers at this moment. In fact, he is instructed to stay away. True to his character, Anakin defies Mace Windu, and hurries off to the Chancellor’s office in hope of keeping the inevitable from happening. (That inevitable event would be Palpatine’s death. If Palpatine — who has manipulated Anakin every step of the way, twisted the young man’s mind — dies, there would be no hope for Padme, or at least the circumstances in which Padme finds herself … in Anakin’s visions/dreams. Anakin feels he needs Palpatine. Sadly, another manipulation on Palpatine’s part to turn the young Jedi.) While I cannot fault Anakin for loving Padme and wanting to protect/help her in every conceivable way, Anakin is acting selfishly here. Anakin wants Palpatine alive for HIS (Anakin’s) use. However, in this particular instance, the well being of the MANY surely outweigh the well being of ONE. Think of all the suffering that ensued because Palpatine lived. Ultimately, Anakin’s maniacal, irrational behavior on Mustafar was what caused the dearest person to his heart to perish — and it was at his own hand.

    But I am getting afield of your musings…

      Hello Melinda 🙂

      Welcome back, my friend! How is the healing process coming along?

      Melinda, Anakin IS sent to the council chambers: “Wait for us in the Council Chamber until we return.”-Mace Windu.
      No, he doesn’t stay for long, but it is THERE that he and Padme have their “Joining in the Force.”
      And yes, he is selfish, especially when it comes to Padme. His emotions go the better of him in the end, that I cannot deny. I’ve always felt that his “thoughts” were his own worst enemy, a victim of his own demise. Sad, truly sad.

        Yes, yes, yes, I see what you mean. Yes, Anakin is sent to the Jedi seat of governing, etc. For a few moments there, as I read your blog, I saw Anakin as being in his own chambers. Silly me! But you’re absolutely right, he IS sent to the Council Chamber. But Anakin did not heed Mace’s directive. 😉 If only … 😉

        It did seem that the two experienced some kind of “joining” that spanned time and distance. 🙂

    Hmm, I never thought of Padme as an individual who is doleful. I suppose I can see how you would consider her to be causing Anakin grief at that particular moment, but to be perfectly honest, I always thought of the 2 young lovers to be more WORRIED, CONCERNED about the other’s well being than anything else at that particular moment. Obi-Wan had just left Padme, and it was clear their conversation left Padme unsettled. Padme was worried about Anakin … that he was slipping further — and farther — away from her and, as she saw it, his true self.

    Anakin, on the other hand, is very worried about his wife. She is his life, and his dreams/visions about her have cut him to the quick. He cannot — he will not — lose her!

    Twilight. That magical time of day. The sun is about to set — on another Coruscant day, and on Anakin’s and Padme’s love and life together. How prophetic. Can they sense each other across the expanse of space? Anakin is one strong Jedi, so why couldn’t that happen? Obi-Wan sensed the death of many, many souls on another planet. Why couldn’t Anakin sense the soul of the one person he treasured above all else? It isn’t even hard to fathom we mere mortals as having a strong connection with those who touch our hearts. 🙂

      Doleful as in “sad” or “mournful/sorrowful”. If I used the word improperly, I apologize.

      I agree, both were concerned about the other, no doubt. Unfortunately, they were so young, more so, Anakin. Being so young, makes it more difficult to handle such an emotional overload. Let’s face it, in my own experiences and I’m sure others as well, our early relationships were full of unnecessary drama. Young adults/Teens, don’t have the patience or the full comprehension of what a True, healthy relationship IS.

    In short, (lol When do I ever make anything short? 😉 ) you certainly have brought up some interesting, intriguing points, Becca. I enjoy — thoroughly — the twists your mind takes down the path of critical thinking. 🙂 You certainly get me thinking. Always! 🙂

    While I don’t necessarily agree with everything Dr. Queen posed, I like the conclusions — or at the very least the musings presented for consideration — that YOU brought to the table. 🙂

    Yes, I do see the use of twilight more as a cinematic vehicle that George Lucas used throughout the Saga. Like I said earlier, staging a scene at twilight implies the end of one chapter, that a new one will start (in the next scene or film). The melding and separation of two … whether it be individuals or events. Too, it’s evident George Lucas wanted to employ some familiarity between the two trilogies. By doing so, there is the connection between the two 3-parters, and there is the connection that we fans make between those two 3-parters. 🙂 (The Lars homestead at the end of ROTS, and Luke in ANH, etc.)

    I will say that I never really thought about Padme’s fiery raiment as an inference of Tatooine’s binary suns. Watching the scene aboard the starship, I always considered the colorful clothing Padme/Queen Amidala wore as a contradiction to the homespun, dare I say plain(?) clothing Anakin wore. Just another way to illustrate how different the two were. However, your explanation adds more depth to the interpretation. Thank you. 🙂

    As always, Becca, I have enjoyed reading — and rereading 😉 — your blog. Thanks for letting me take up so many comment spots.

    (It’s grand to be back! 🙂 )

    As far as my musings go, THANK YOU for all the wonderful compliments 🙂 It’s an amazing feeling to know that I sparked an “A-Ha” moment in someone, to really get them to think of a scene in a new way.

    Also, if you haven’t noticed, I love connecting the “dots” in SW. As you said, the fans like to see the similarities between the OT and PT. It certainly gives the films a lot more depth and room for conversation. Do you think we’ll get that with the next installment? Or will it be a whole new and fresh outlook of the GFFA?

    Thanks again for all your fantastic comments and so thrilled you are back! 🙂

      I kind of surmised you enjoy “connecting the dots” in Star Wars. 😉 I do, too — and I thoroughly enjoy listening to what you and other fans have to say and share. You have helped expand my thinking on the entire Saga. 🙂

      I really do think there will be connections between the PT, the OT and the new installments, Becca, that the new installments will add more depth to the story George Lucas began more than 30 years ago. 🙂 All it takes — on the fans’ collective part — is an open mind. 🙂 I’m looking forward to being transported to the galaxy far, far away. 🙂
