Edith Piaf, Beloved French Songstress. The Sagittarian Sparrow Sings, "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien - Means, "No, I Regret Nothing." Enjoy! ❤

I was just reading a great article titled, 'Sagittarius The Hero'. Being a Sagittarius myself, it grabbed my attention. It definitely made for some very interesting reading to say the least. I had no idea Josef Stalin was a Sagittarius, born on December 21, 1879. Hmm... but it looks to me that Stalin's birthday falls on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp wouldn't you agree? For those of you who don't know, approximately 60 million Russians were starved to death, tortured and murdered by Stalin's Marxist Communist regime. It's hard for me to believe Stalin was a Sagittarius considering what a horrible creature he was. He was inhuman. Sagittarius are known to be the 'clowns of the zodiac', 'the entertainers', the 'great philosophers', the 'seekers of truth and fairness'. Our Sagittarius range of personalities is extreme. Because on the other side of the Sagittarius spectrum is Walt Disney, Mark Twain, Bruce Lee, Ludwig van Beethoven, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, later known as "Osho", and Winston Churchill to name a few historical famous Sagittarius figures that positively influenced humanity as a whole. This is the side of Sagittarius I choose to harness. Let us hope that this world never allows another Stalin nightmare. Hugs to all of you. ❤
okay, I just came across, 10 things you didn't know about Stalin:

His birthday is up for debate

According to official accounts, Stalin was born on December 18, 1879. However, the Old Style Julian calendar (the Russian calendar) marks his birthday as December 6. Stalin himself, however, changed his birthday to December 21, as well as his birth year (allegedly) to 1881, to throw off tsarist officials.
I was inspired to share Edith Piaf's song with you because she was mentioned in the 'Sagittarius The Hero' piece I was reading. Now, I find myself enjoying her gorgeous music on YouTube this Friday afternoon.

The Sagittarian Sparrow
"I want to make people cry even when they don't understand my words."

—Edith Piaf, beloved French songstress, born Dec. 19, 1915, may have personified her country's dichotomy, between the sublime and the degraded. She defiantly lived her life as if "death does not exist"—another quote of hers. The title of her signature song is Je Ne Regrette Rien (I regret nothing).

From the YouTube description:

Piaf dedicated her recording of the song to the French Foreign Legion. At the time of the recording, France was engaged in a military conflict, the Algerian War (1954--1962), and the 1st REP (1st Foreign Parachute Regiment) — which backed a temporary putsch of 1961 by the French military against the civilian leadership of Algeria — adopted the song when their resistance was broken. The leadership of the Regiment was arrested and tried but the non-commissioned officers, corporals and Legionnaires were assigned to other Foreign Legion formations. They left the barracks singing the song, which has now become part of the French Foreign Legion heritage and is sung when they are on parade.
