What is Fear? Fear is just a thought which can make a person weak and negative. It leads to instability in our minds as a result of which one is never sure of what to say or do. We are made to believe that these emotions emerge and submerge due to planetary positions in our birth chart. This, however, is a complete misunderstanding as the planets actually have no effect on our daily lives. Placement of planets during the time of our birth can only give us indication of the broad patterns and trends of our lives. Planets never determine any events of our lives. Our actions determine our future and nothing else. If you fear water, there is a possibility of your drowning someday. However, if you overcome this fear and learn to swim, you could even help save others along with yourself!
