CHIRON STARSSAGITTARIUS SHOWS US THE PHILOSOPHER, THE HEALER, & MENTOR.  SAGITTARIUS IS DEPICTED AS AN ARCHER, A WISE CENTAUR WHO IS HALF-MAN & HALF-HORSE, AND IN THE SAME WAY, THE PHILOSOPHER IN SAGITTARIUS MAY BE SEEN AS AN EVOLUTIONARY STAGE BETWEEN SCORPIO & CAPRICORN THAT TRANSMUTES FIXED, POWERFUL & CONTROLLING ENERGIES INTO ASPIRING,EARTHY & PRAGMATIC ONES. ZODIAC JOURNEYSAGITTARIANS ARE ETERNAL STUDENTS, CONSTANTLY SEEKING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE WORLD.  SAGITTARIUS 1S ARE THE EMBODIMENT OF SELF-RELIANCE, BELIEVING THAT LIFE ITSELF IS THE GREAT TEACHER, & CONSIDER EXPERIENCE  THE BOOKS & LESSONS.ZODIAC TOURSAGITTARIUS II’S ARE THE ORIGINATORS.  THEY ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO CATEGORIZE SINCE EACH IS SO INDIVIDUAL, AND IN MANY WAYS THEIR INTRICATE PERSONALITIES DEFY DESCRIPTION.ASTROLOGY TIMETHE SAGITTARIUS III’S ARE THE TITANS, THAT TEND TO BE HIGH MINDED, EXPANSIVE PERSONALITIES.  RULED BY JUPITER, WHICH LENDS OPTIMISM AND A DESIRE TO SEE THE WHOLE PICTURE.  MANY SAGITTARIANS GO SO FAR AS TO ULTIMATELY REJECT MANY OF SOCIETY’S VALUES IN FAVOR OF A HIGHER TRUTH.  THE SAGITTARIAN LOVE OF MOVEMENT AND TRAVEL IS LEGENDARY, CONSTANTLY SEEKING OUT NEW WAYS IN WHICH THEY CAN EXPRESS THEMSELVES.SAGITTARIUS SOUP

RAUSCHENBERG ERASEDROBERT RAUSCHENBERG ENTERS THE LIST AT NUMBER FIVE PRESENTING AN INTERESTING MIDPOINT. HIS PRESENCE ON THE LIST ATTESTS TO HIS ARTISTIC LEGACY, & UNDENIABLE INFLUENCE TODAY.  THE MORE YOU LOOK AT THE CONTEMPORARY ART LANDSCAPE, SO MANY ARTISTS ARE STILL RE-HASHING IDEAS HE PROPAGATED OVER 50 YEARS AGO!  FROM COMBINES TO ASSEMBLAGE, TO APPROPRIATION, & THE INCORPORATION OF COMMERCIAL PROCESSES IN FINE ART MAKING, HE WAS YEARS AHEAD OF HIS TIME NOT JUST CREATIVELY, BUT HIS SENSE OF CONSTANT EXPLORATION MAKE IT CLEAR WHY HE IS STILL HELD IN SUCH HIGH REGARD TODAY. ROB BY HOPPER“I USUALLY WORK IN A DIRECTION UNTIL I KNOW HOW TO DO IT, THEN I STOP.  AT THE TIME THAT I AM BORED OR UNDERSTAND- I USE THOSE WORDS INTERCHANGEABLY – ANOTHER APPETITE HAS FORMED.  A LOT OF PEOPLE TRY TO THINK UP IDEAS.  I’M NOT ONE.  I’D RATHER ACCEPT THE IRRESISTIBLE POSSIBILITIES OF WHAT I CAN’T IGNORE” x XRAUSCHENBERG GOLD A LOT ABOUT INNOVATION IS ABOUT BEING ABLE TO SEE SOMETHING THAT ISN’T CURRENTLY THERE, SOMETIMES BY COMBINING DISPARATE IDEAS, FROM DIVINE INSPIRATION, OR MAYBE FROM A CHEROKEE BIRTHRIGHT?  IT IS NO SECRET THAT SOME PEOPLE ACCESS NEW PARADIGMS GENERATIONS BEFORE THEY BECOME ZEITGEIST, IT IS THEIR JOB TO CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO, OFTEN WITH BACKLASH, BUT THIS FRICTION IS INEVITABLE WHEN PRESENTING FORMS PEOPLE ARE NOT ACCUSTOMED TO, & THEIR TASTES HAVE YET TO PROCESS.  RAUSCHENBERG IS A TRAILBLAZER & TRUE AMERICAN MASTER #ROBRAUSCHENBERG COLA
