…is fear itself.” -Franklin Delano Roosevelt. U.S. President Roosevelt’s immortal words were more prophetic than anyone could ever realize. Roosevelt was born under the progressive sign of Aquarius and his famous quote rings true especially today. The reason we still find ourselves dealing with the fallout from the global recession is precisely because of the paralysis of fear. Businesses may be afraid to hire, people are afraid to spend and everyone is afraid to sneeze.
Of course, the seeds of fear were planted by the previous administration. Former U.S. President George W. Bush was instrumental in drumming up this fear so his minions could enact and implement the civil-rights trampling Patriot Act. The fear has become a way of life and we are all sick of it. Let’s quit being scary cats and start faithfully spending again, hiring again and living again! In the school of karmic thought, it is not the American way to hoard. It is, however, the American way to share! If we can find a way to save and share, we will all be better off for it!
Winston Churchill, the legendary British Prime Minster and very direct, forthright Sagittarius once said, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Let’s look to our previous generations to find the wisdom and guidance that we sorely lack today. The propaganda machines that are Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are probably doing more harm than good. Think about it.
