The Sagittarius Woman Personality, Amped

Filed in SAGITTARIUS

Marina Abramovic bottle feeding baby tigerPerformance Artist Marina Abramovic is an extreme but brilliant example of the Sagittarius woman personality.

“…Two days before her BULLETT photo shoot, on a national holiday in Spain, Marina Abramovi? writes an email from her suite at the Tryp Madrid Ambassador Hotel requesting the following items: “1 oversize white men’s button-up shirt, 1 simple large glass of water, 1 white candle, and 1 very sexy man in a tuxedo (whom I can potentially carry around).” These are, of course, perfectly reasonable requests, but there are more. Abramovic would also like “2 ravens and 1 eagle and 1 baby tiger.”

 

After the shoot, where, by some small miracle, she was greeted with a menagerie of zoo animals and a body-hairless model named Alejandro, she calls during a break from rehearsing for her latest performance, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovi?, a biographical quasi-opera that premiered last year as part of the 2011 Manchester International Festival. (The Madrid version ran from April 11 to 22.) “The raven is a symbol of bad news and death, the small tiger is an image of strength, and the eagle is an image of power,” she says. “Each of these elements represents the Fall of Man, but everything that is negative has a positive side. Everything that is black is also white. I am so many things at the same time.”…”

“An Artist Should Stay For Long Periods Of Time At Waterfalls”

If you don’t know her, Marina Abramovic is a Serbian (and Sagittarius) artist, performer and film-maker. She is no sudden upstart celebrity in the art world. She’s 65, so a few years past her second Saturn Return. She’s individuated and adroit at maintaining relevancy in a scene that can be particularly brutal on aging people, particularly women. She has Sun and Mars in Sagittarius opposite Uranus in Gemini. Her Moon is in Aquarius. She’s Cancer Rising so that Moon rules. Aside from the Sagittarius woman personality accelerated by Mars, she is also a good example of natal Mercury Retrograde genius

This extract from her book Walk Through Walls sounds ultra-Sagittarius:

An artist must make time for the long periods of solitude Solitude is extremely important Away from home, Away from the studio, Away from family, Away from friends An artist should stay for long periods of time at waterfalls An artist should stay for long periods of time at exploding volcanoes An artist should stay for long periods of time looking at fast-running rivers An artist should stay for long periods of time looking at the horizon where the ocean and sky meet An artist should stay for long periods of time looking at the stars in the night sky

As a pro I can say that image is obviously retouched to the hilt but I don’t really care how she looks, I just freaking love her. She gives great quotes and is one of the very few truly interesting performance artists.

Marina is Cancer rising and on great terms with plastic surgeons since she dated a Brazilian.

I sat with her in New York. Scorpionic austerity and Sadge decadence. Fire and water are a hard combo to beat, in some ways.

She’s never been more airbrushed than in that pic, though.

I am a MASSIVE fan of Marina. Thanks for featuring her here. Her new film, while I haven’t watched it yet, looks impressive. I am sad I missed her performance at MoMA.

I know I’m bringin this post back from the grave but I’m a fan now too and those hard aspects make total sense having discovered how she works. She works insanely hard, every performance is utterly gruelling in its stillness. She’s my new hero.

She could also possibly have narcissistic personality disorder – they do not age, either.

Im born in the Week Of Youth and Ease, people would see me at the gym years later and say dang u still look like a kid. Ive also met other aquas born in the same week and were all Lazy and look like kids. I would say letting your freak flag fly and actualizing freedom part of your chart, does contribute to you not holding the energy of such conformity on your face or other parts of your body.

I always love minimal makeup women…. dont know why. I mean I never read fashion mags, and some of the art that is created with make up is really cool, but taking it to the streets is not my style and wouldnt be if I was one.

i just hope to one day see the use of organics in all makeups.

She really is stunning.

My partner is uber Uranian – Rising Aqua with Jupe in Aqua trine his Sun and Uranus.
He is half Chinese/French with dark complexion – he will always look the same age forever and ever amen! Jealous.

i’m guessing these pictures have been well photoshopped/well lit. I saw her a couple of years ago. IRL while she looks good, she doesn’t look 35. At the time i didn’t know how old she was but I had guessed 58/60. being passionate about your work, curious about what’s going on in the world and trying new things goes a long way towards radiating young.

Actually I think she has implants.. not that there’s anything wrong with that. But clearly one is not “ageless” without help, thank the Goddess for options.

Totes agree. Lighting & photoshop. You don’t get to 65 or even 55 without a single line on your neck!!

She’s not actually. I met her a few years ago at a private dinner party I was cooking for in New York. She has superb longevity in her family, she is careful about toxins and heavy metals and I left her company feeling like I was floating. Sh is the most authentic person I have ever met. And incredibly smart. In real life she looks about 40.
