The Restless And Young, Bob Dylan, The Gemini Artist

Robert Allen Zimmerman, or more popularly known as Bob Dylan, is one of the outstanding talents the music industry has seen. He is an American songwriter, singer, artist, and writer. Bob Dylan has influenced music and culture for more than five decades. While much of his celebrated songs date back from the 1960s when his songs recorded social unrest. His early songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The hard rain gonna fall” became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements.

“The Times They Are a-Changin”

“This was definitely a song with a purpose. I wanted to write a big song, some kind of theme song, with short concise verses that piled up on each other in a hypnotic way. The civil rights movement and the folk music movement were pretty close and allied together at that time.”
Dylan said of “The Times They Are a-Changin”

I accept chaos, I’m not sure whether it accepts me.

His music mostly reflects different emotions present in the society of 60, the anger, humor, and some time, hope. Fear of a society that is growing up in the shadow of the atomic bomb, war, and civil disturbance.

He became a celebrity by the age of 21, not only just artistic but also received intellectual fame. With unbridled energy of a true Gemini, he journeyed from one genre to another, from folk to blues, to country, and spirituals.

He gained fame mainly for his civil-rights and anti-war songs, and that’s what young people of that generation wanted to hear from him, a hope against injustice and cruelty.

Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky
With one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea
Circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate
Driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

He is known to be shy and evasive, but astute about money, deeply obsessed with his art. He has remained an elusive figure.

People born under the sign of Gemini are multitalented. They are very intelligent and quick-witted people who are attentive to everything that happens around them, and they can adapt to any change in the situation.

They are open to all new things in the world. The ruler of Gemini is Mercury, which gives people the gift of public speaking and talent for writing and mastery with words. Their manners, wit make them look a bit shallow or fake.

They are people who are comfortable anywhere in the world and in any situation, similar to Sagittarius. They seek new experiences and they tend to communicate with others in an interesting and charming way, but they never force their opinions on other people. They are genuinely versatile with forever young at mind.
