Dylan: Don't Think Twice

Dylan: Don't Think Twice
I had been closing my creativity down to a very narrow, controllable scale … that things had become too familiar and I might have to disorient myself …
-- Bob Dylan "Chronicles: Volume 1"

Even as one of the most influential singer's and songwriter of his generation, Bob Dylan's gift, it seems from his biography "Chronicles: Volume I," didn't just drop from the heavens without a fight. He was not immune from wrestling with the broader implications of creativity and the result was a conscious act of defiance to the musical status quo's of his time. He broadened what it meant to sing folk and a lot of people didn't take kindly to it and first and had trouble placing him amongst age-old folk tradition. But this made no difference to him. "I knew what I was doing, though, and wasn't going to take a step back or retreat from anybody." It is this quality of belief in one's expression that is so important in manifesting our individual gifts. I'm betting he had some healthy Aries (turns out he doesn't) in him and as Jupiter and Uranus move through this unquenchable fire sign, we may want to pull a page from Dylan's book to inspire us to move forward no matter what.

Alright I got a little too overzealous with the Aries thing. Upon looking at his chart, he actually is not under the influence of Aries. Still, it's good to test our assumptions and then fine tune our astrological impressions. He does have a lot of buoyant, fiery Sag energy going on (Sag rising and a Sun Jupiter conjunction) which would give him a bit of that larger than life quality as well as a propelling quality of faith. However, I believe it is hard-boiled, tenacious Moon/Saturn conjunction in intractable (and artistic!) Taurus which is most symbolic of his unwavering grip on his creative self-preservation. With a Saturn/Moon conjunction, you get someone who has a nascent understanding of what it means to set your sights high and head up that mountain peak one step at a time in spite of adversity. And his Sagittarian optimism certainly helps curb that self-doubt that can sometimes beset the droll but ever-wise influence of crusty Saturn on the tender Moon. He felt the grip of destiny and at the end of the day it wasn't a matter so much of how as of when. It is this sort of strength in belief that allowed him not to think twice. Perhaps we shouldn't either.
