"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do!"

Astrology of Finance
An interesting bit of history reveals that Mr. J.P. Morgan, yes, THE Mr. Morgan, mega-financial tycoon, was quoted as saying, "Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do!" It is a documented fact that Mr. Morgan purchased a ticket for the Titanic's maiden voyage a few weeks prior to her ill-fated departure, as so many of his elitist associates had done. However, J.P. Morgan suddenly changed his itinerary for the South of France. His close friends claim that Mr. Morgan had consulted with his astrologer just prior to changing his travel plans.
J. P. Morgan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Pierpont Morgan (April 17, 1837 – March 31, 1913) was an American financier, banker and art collector who dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation during his time. In 1892 Morgan arranged the merger of Edison General Electric and Thompson-Houston Electric Company to form General Electric. After financing the creation of the Federal Steel Company he merged the Carnegie Steel Company and several other steel and iron businesses to form the United States Steel Corporation in 1901. He is widely credited with having saved or rescued the U.S. national economy in general—and the federal government in particular—on two separate occasions. He bequeathed much of his large art collection to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and to the Wadsworth Atheneum of Hartford, Connecticut. He died in Rome, Italy, in 1913 at the age of 75, leaving his fortune and business to his son, John Pierpont "Jack" Morgan, Jr.

Avoiding the Titanic did not lenghten his lousy life by a full year.

Someone who donated all this art so that the public might be able to experience the beauty created by artists of the past.. arranging deals so that we can have the steel we need to build buildings and bridges and ships.. and making it possible for every building to have the electricity we need to do our work and connect with one another..

I read a book by J Paul Getty.. which helped me understand and appreciate extremely wealthy people and their opinions a little bit more.

Maybe if we hate wealthy people a little less we can make room in our minds and hearts to manifest wealth in our lives.

and I LOVE astrology xox

Perfectly expressed Paris!

I totally agree. JP Morgan also showed us an aspect of infinite potential at work.
