```Hi,

no Mathematica can't "really" rotate anything, you have to
turn you head or to rotate your monitor.

May be, that something like

Block[{\$DisplayFunction = Identity},
gr = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}, Frame -> False, Axes -> True,
AxesLabel -> {"Hello", "real rotation"}]
];
Show[FullGraphics[gr] /.
Text["Hello", pos_, ___] :>
Table[Text["Hello", pos, {0, 0}, {Cos[phi], Sin[phi]}], {phi, 0,
2Pi,
Pi/4}] /.

Text["real rotation", pos_, ___] :>
Table[Text["real rotation", pos, {0, 0}, {Cos[phi], Sin[phi]}],
{phi, 0,
2Pi, Pi/4}], PlotRange -> All]

Regards
Jens
