The Sagittarius Mixtape: The Archer’s Arrow


” I must only warn you of one thing. You have become a different person in the course of these years. For this is what the art of archery means: a profound and far reaching contest of the archer with himself. Perhaps you have hardly noticed it yet , but you will feel it very strongly when you meet your friends and acquaintances again in your own country: things will no longer harmonize as before. You will see with other eyes and measure with other measures. It has happened to me too, and it happens to all who are touched by the spirit of this art.”  
– Excerpt from “Zen in the Art of Archery”

Shout out to all of the Sagittarians!! Welcome to your season where anything is possible. The Archer, operating at the highest level, knows that the sky is the limit and faith in him/herself and the universe is the ultimate philosophy of life.

The list of musical selections no doubt embodies the Sagittarian spirit, so I hope you enjoy.
