You will find that the interpretation
of your chart is written in simple language, uncluttered
by astrological jargon. If a statement appears to contradict
another statement, then you exhibit these opposite qualities
at different times in your life. For example, a statement
that you are highly sociable and gregarious and a statement
that you prefer solitude seemingly contradict each other;
this means that you vacillate, and need both sociability
and solitude at different times.
The astrological factor that
the interpretation is based on is also given. The astrological
factor is given for the benefit of astrologers and students
of astrology. If you are not a student of astrology, then
obviously the factor will not be meaningful to you, and
you can ignore it.

Chapter 1: General Characteristics
Your fundamental needs, values,
and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four
astrological elements. Each person has their own unique
balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration,
enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests),
air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional
needs and feelings).
Your "elemental make-up"
is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced"
or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in a certain
element (or elements), it simply means that you need to
consciously develop that aspect of yourself to learn to
appreciate and/or to work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overvalue the
element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a
lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore
it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and
explained in more detail in the following chapters.
You are an "up"
person, positive-minded and lively, and you generally have
an invigorating, inspiring, energizing effect upon other
people. Boredom or getting stuck in the rut of old habits
is not a problem for you, as you have numerous interests
and the energy to pursue many of them. However, overextending
yourself, pouring your energies out without taking time
to replenish yourself, scattering your forces or moving
on to new things before you finish something are definite
tendencies. You can burn yourself out by being involved
in too many activities. You seem impelled to be always in
motion, as if you were afraid you would miss something interesting
"out there". Paying attention to your body's needs
for rest, attending to your own inner world and to your
feelings and giving sufficient attention to your immediate
family and their needs is something you need to learn to
do more of. It would benefit you to simply stop from time
to time and just be for awhile.
You are very idealistic and
are frequently disappointed that we do not live in a perfect
world, but it is through the vision and energy of people
like yourself that new ideas are introduced and positive
changes made. Your gifts are your ability to entertain and
play with creative ideas and possibilities, to seek new
solutions to problems, and to venture gladly into new territory
(literally or figuratively).
You need to cultivate the
quality of receptivity; the ability to listen and quietly
absorb what another is saying, for instance, instead of
focusing on what you have to say. Learning to wait and to
trust rather having to make something happen or trying to
bend the world to your will is another aspect of this.
One of your primary challenges
involves developing a stable sense of security, solidness,
and a steady rhythm in your life. Cultivating self-discipline,
patience and endurance, and learning to accept realistic
limitations will enable you to be more productive and to
actualize some of the ideas and creative impulses you have.
You are not always interested in practical applications,
the actual work involved in realizing a desire or compromises
for the sake of practicalities.
You feel out of place in
the world at times, restless, discontent, unable to find
your niche, dissatisfied with mundane reality. Positively
this may spark your exploration of the creative, imaginative,
or spiritual side of life. However, you tend to resist growing
up and learning how to effectively deal with adult responsibility.
You also tend to be either bound up with the past or projecting
into the future, ignoring the present moment - what actually
is. To become more present and grounded, you may find the
following helpful: getting massages on a regular basis,
doing gentle regular, rhythmic exercise like walking or
yoga, and eating substantial, heavy foods.
As you will read in the next
chapter, you also have strong feelings for other people
and you have the capacity to communicate with feeling your

Chapter 2: How You
Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
The following is a description
of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you,
the way you come across, the face you show to the world.
In Chapter 3 you will read about the "The Inner You:
Your Real Motivation", which describes the kind of
person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie.
Read this chapter and the next one and compare them - there
may be significant differences between them, in which case
"the inner you" may not shine through and others
are in for some surprises when they get to know you at a
more than superficial level. This chapter describes the
costume you wear, your role in life, while Chapter 3 talks
about the real person inside the costume.
You appear gentle and soft,
and you act rather reserved with others until you know them
well and feel it is safe to be open with them. You have
a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging,
and are deeply attached to the past: your heritage, roots,
family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making
radical changes or moves away from what is known and safe
can be very painful and difficult for you. You tend to cling
and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal
or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven,
is very important to you.
You approach life emotionally
and subjectively and are sensitive to the emotional atmosphere,
the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around you. Instinctive
and nonrational, you are often unable to give a clear, simple
explanation for your actions. Something FEELS right, or
Your emotions and personal
loyalties tend to color your thoughts and opinions. You
view life from a very personal perspective and often cannot
mentally detach yourself from your own personal bias and
prejudices. You are apt to be concerned primarily with how
something affects you and those dear and close to you, rather
than with the principle or the broader social implications.
For instance, you may be very patriotic and feel that whatever
"my country" does is right without really knowing
much about the other nation's policies or point of view.
Put simply: if it is good for me and mine, it is good. If
it is not good for me and mine, it is no good.
You are tenaciously loyal,
protective, and supportive of those you care about, and
have a very strong nurturing, motherly nature (regardless
of your gender). You empathize with others and intuitively
sense the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate
and sympathetic, you are easily moved by others' pain, and
you are often the one others seek out when they need comfort,
reassurance, or help.
Your moods fluctuate and
change frequently and you are sometimes open, sometimes
withdrawn emotionally. You communicate nonverbally and appreciate
a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than
having to make everything explicit.
You never forget either kindness
or unkindness shown to you.
You have a friendly, affectionate
attitude towards others and a great deal of personal charm.
Your attractiveness is one of the first things others notice
about you, and is probably something you care a great deal
about. You get along well with people and know how to please
them. You have a good sense of style and beauty.
You seem quirky, unusual,
offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems you
are trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just
by being yourself. You tend to be restless, excitable, and
somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.

Chapter 3: The Inner
You: Your Real Motivation
While you appear gentle and
soft and are emotionally supportive of others (as described
in the previous chapter), you are also very curious and
inquisitive, with a childlike interest in everything new.
This combination makes you a winner with children because
you share their curiosity and love of play, and you also
empathize with them. Psychology is probably also an interest
of yours, and you are very effective dealing with people
on a one-to-one basis. You surprise people sometimes because
behind your soft, rounded appearance you are quite sharp,
quick and intelligent.
You are, in many ways, an
eternal child. Your mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible,
playful, and always eager for new experiences - and your
attention span is often quite brief. You grasp ideas quickly
and once your initial curiosity has been satisfied, you
want to go on to something else. You crave frequent change,
variety, meeting new situations and people.
It may be hard for you to
decide just where your talents and true vocation lie, for
you have a multitude of interests and are loathe to limit
yourself by concentrating on just one. You are easily distracted
by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Your curiosity
and restlessness propel you into many different experiences
in life, and you are willing to taste or try anything once.
Doing the same thing over and over again, even it is something
you do well, is real drudgery for you.
You live in your head a great
deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around
- and you need mental stimulation every bit as much as you
need food and drink. In fact, if you had to choose between
a good book or movie and a good lunch, you would very likely
choose the former. You have a creative mind and often live
by your wits.
You are also a very social
creature, with a strong need to communicate and to interact
with people. You enjoy using and playing with words and
have a real flair for getting your ideas across in a clever,
interesting, articulate manner. Writing or speaking are
areas you have talent for.
You also have a rather light
and mischievous sense of humor, and often do not take anything
too seriously. Though you crave emotional involvement, it
is hard for you to achieve it, for you are frequently unwilling
to commit yourself to anything, to take responsibility,
or to limit your personal freedom and mobility.
Your happiness lies in using
your creativity and your language skills to communicate
something meaningful, to teach, inspire, or bring people
together. You have an unbiased mind and can usually offer
a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Your faults are
your lack of constancy and persistence, and your tendency
to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's
Leading groups and classes,
and being involved in community efforts, social activities,
events or movements are areas where you really shine and
express your creativity. An awareness of politics or the
larger social impact of individual actions is natural to
Your subconscious needs and
feelings blend well with your conscious intentions and desires,
therefore you are able to proceed in your life's pursuits
relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency.
Your male-female relationships will reflect this state of
internal harmony also.
You can be an inspiring leader
of a team or group effort. Your dynamism and energy evokes
the same in others, and you see healthy competition between
people as a plus. Generally, you enjoy fine health as well.
Along with your energy and
drive you have high ideals and an active fantasy life. There
is a dreamer and an idealist in you, as well as a doer and
a fighter. You want to win but not at others' expense, and
this maybe something of a dilemma for you.
You are extremely sensitive,
compassionate, and giving, often to your own personal disadvantage.
Your ideals and spiritual values motivate you, and you cannot
live only for personal gain or materialistic concerns. There
must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration
or creativity in what you do. Otherwise you become listless
and aimless. The arts, theater, music, and/or charitable
works suit you well.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests
You have an extremely active,
lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests
and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. You are quick
to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest
in an idea or project once your curiosity has been satisfied.
You like to taste a little bit of everything -concentration
and disciplined study are not your strong points. Mentally
restless, you may change jobs or locations frequently, or
do work that involves movement, travel, and variety.
You have a flair for language,
playing with words, speaking, writing, or teaching in an
entertaining and informative way. You also enjoy meeting
new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them,
and you work well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications,
journalism, or public relations are good areas for you.
Your ability to be articulate and to communicate well is
one of your greatest strengths.
You have a good understanding
of group trends, politics, mass movements, and community
affairs. Sharing ideas with groups of people is something
you do well and are likely to be involved with. You collaborate
well in group efforts and are likely to be part of a successful
team or large organization.

Chapter 5: Emotions:
Moods, Feelings, Romance
Emotional outbursts are frequent
with you due to your fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness.
You express yourself very directly and honestly and no one
has to guess what your true feelings are. However, you dislike
showing any personal weaknesses or needs for support, comfort,
and nurturing. You are often impatient with yourself and
with others. You abhor emotional dependency and dislike
You inspire others to take
positive action in their lives by your own enthusiasm and
eagerness to meet life's challenges, and are attracted to
people who are adventurous, courageous, and independent.
You are rather bossy, but you do not like to be with people
that you can boss around too much. You enjoy a good fight
sometimes. Relationships built upon mutual respect and a
good deal of emotional freedom are ideal for you.
You become very cross if
you do not have enough vigorous physical activity. You will
feel your best if you "do battle" on the tennis
or racquetball court (or engage in some other competitive
You may have done extensive
traveling in your early years, or in some way had a background
which enables you to understand and identify with many different
types of people or cultures.
You have a craving for things
which are far away and foreign or for things you have never
experienced before. You want to completely immerse yourself
in the feelings and tastes of a new place, rather than simply
have facts or an intellectual appreciation. Emotionally,
too, you are restless and something of a wanderer.
You feel that you must always
be DOING something, and become impatient and irritable if
you have to slow down or wait for anything. A stormy home
life may be the result of your own tendency to fight for
what you want, rather than compromise. You may not realize
how competitive you are.
Although you are impetuous
and easily provoked (as mentioned above), you also have
a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of
humor, which balances that. While hotheaded at times, you
are usually a good sport.
You are tolerant and forgiving,
always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second
chance. You expect the best from people and draw it out
of them, and you enjoy making others comfortable and happy.
Because of your emotional generosity, your life is rich
with friends, and often financial blessings as well.
Although you get hot under
the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), you also
have a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure
which enables you to rein in some of your more aggressive
tendencies. This side of you is described below.
There is another side to
you as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even
pessimistic side which tempers your good cheer and generosity,
as discussed below.
You often feel that you must
do something or be something other than what you are in
order to receive approval and acceptance from others. You
are very sensitive to criticism and easily feel left out
or neglected, and though you may appear cool or distant,
you actually care very much about being included. Because
you are so sensitive, it may seem easier for you to withdraw
into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises
that can occur when you let others really know you in an
intimate, personal way. Your reserve and caution make establishing
a close emotional rapport with others difficult for you,
and you become very attached to the few people you consider
"real friends". You can gain inner security and
strength through periods of solitude if you view them as
times to nourish yourself and develop your own interests,
rather than as times of loneliness.
Although you were portrayed
above as being assertive and combative, you have a diametrically
opposed tendency as well: The urge to escape all contention
and ugliness. This may mellow your fiery reactions somewhat,
or you may seesaw between the two. Your softer side is described
in the following paragraphs.
The beauty and harmony of
your surroundings has a very powerful effect on your emotions.
You are very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere
where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kindhearted,
and peace-loving, you will give or sacrifice much in order
to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy".
You are very intuitive and
have the ability to make the right decisions guided by you
inner feelings. You have a sense of honor and pride and
are considerate of others. Others respect you and are willing
to help you, because you don't act out of petty motives.
Your emotional excitability
is very strong and you tend to be high-strung and impatient.
You know what you want to accomplish, forge ahead and brook
no interference. Domineering and forceful, it is not easy
for you to back down gracefully when you are confronted.
Sensitive and sentimental,
you are deeply attached to your family, old friends, familiar
places, and the past. You are romantic and tender in love,
and the remembrance of birthdays, anniversaries, family
rituals, and other days of personal significance is very
important to you. You seek caring, emotional support, and
security in love. You like to be needed, to cherish and
protect your loved ones, and you are somewhat possessive
You often hide your affection,
or find your feelings difficult to express or get across
to the person you love. Being openly affectionate and trusting
often doesn't seem safe to you. You may feel your love won't
be appreciated or reciprocated. You may get involved in
secret love affairs or fall in love with a person who is
quite unavailable to you. Love and sacrifice often seem
to go hand in hand for you - having to give something up
to be with the one you love, or having to relinquish some
person or some aspect of an important love relationship.
Your love feelings are easily
aroused and your romantic relationships begin with a sudden
electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and you
may be in and out of love frequently - especially in your
younger years. You crave emotional excitement and need to
feel spontaneous and free, so you may avoid making firm
personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of
love and relationships appeal to you, and you are attracted
to unique, creative, or unstable people.

Chapter 6: Drive and
Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You have a warrior's attitude
- decisive, courageous, and bold. You tend to always want
to DO something, even when waiting for an appropriate time
or not doing something (simply letting things alone to resolve
themselves) would actually be more efficient and effective.
You absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient
about getting what you want. You feel that it is up to you
to take the initiative and you go after your goal or desire
You are also self-reliant,
do not depend on others to do things for you or help you
along, and you are often irritated when other people offer
advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to
you. You are willful and can be quite oblivious to others'
desires or feelings when you are pursuing something you
want. You are highly competitive, enjoy a challenge or a
good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding
in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture,
you need a very positive response and encouragement to sustain
your interest in it. If a project isn't successful rather
quickly, you are apt to drop it and move on to something
else, rather than rework or refine it. The desire to blaze
a trail, to do things in a new way - YOUR way - is very
strong in you. You can discover, invent, and initiate new
things, but are impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance
needed to complete a long-term project.
You have passionate convictions
and will fight for them when challenged. You are willing
to dedicate a great deal of your energy and force to an
important cause, and you'll act decisively on your beliefs,
rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes you get so involved
and identified with your ideas that you cannot really be
receptive to anyone who opposes you philosophically.
You have a positive, "can-do"
attitude and tackle life's challenges with relish. You are
self-confident and have a strong will to succeed, to see
how much you can do and how far you can go. No matter what
you accomplish, you do not rest on your laurels. You want
to keep on going, to do even bigger things. You are forward-looking,
enterprising, and enthusiastic about new projects. You are
not happy in situations that do not offer you challenges
and the potential for growth and expansion in the future
- no matter how secure or satisfactory they may be in other
respects. You enjoy competition, but you compete mostly
with yourself, to see how much of your vision and potential
you can really achieve. You make a good leader, inspiring
courage and confidence in others. You usually enjoy good
health and high vitality.
Your competitive drive and
big ambitions (commented upon earlier) are fueled upon by
either strong spiritual idealism, or a rather inflated,
grandiose idea of what you can actually accomplish. Your
energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very strong,
as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following
You dream up creative solutions
to problems and take an imaginative, unusual approach to
getting a job done. When difficulties arise you prefer to
avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful
or subtle methods of resolving problems. Working to help
others or for a cause that transcends your own narrow, personal
interests is satisfying for you. You have an artistic flair
and appreciate the colorful, unique, or strange.
You are highly ambitious
and will drive yourself (and others) mercilessly when you
want to achieve something. Competition can become a deadly
serious and rather ugly thing with you, as if your very
life depended upon winning or conquering. Your relationships
with men may be especially fraught with conflicts and power
struggle. You are capable of tremendous effort, but you
must beware of burning yourself out.
You are apt to receive much
publicity and popularity through your professional pursuits,
for you have a way of winning the hearts and trust of many
people. You have an instinct for what the masses of people
will respond to emotionally, and this feeling-sense of what
other people want enables you to succeed in sales, promotion,
and so on. Your career could also involve protecting and
caring for people, nurturing, "mothering" others
in some capacity.
You have noble aspirations
and grand plans for yourself. Combining personal goals with
humanitarian concerns, philanthropy, and an interest in
social betterment, you are apt to be quite successful and
influential in your community. You are suited to large,
expansive enterprises and dealing with wealth.
You persevere through numerous
obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to
attain your ambitions in life. Sometimes it may feel as
if you're pushing a boulder uphill. Try to avoid bitterness
or comparing your lot to others', as these could weaken
You are quite restless and
indefatigable in the pursuit of your objectives. Only satisfied
with maximum results, you fight to the last moment. Some
of your endeavors could be a bit daring though, and your
aims a bit high.

Chapter 7: Growth and
Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
You believe strongly in the
power of positivity and in each individual's ability to
make life anything desired through one's own initiative
and effort. The more you rely on yourself, the better you
feel, and you find it difficult to ask for or accept outside
help. The joy of competing (and especially winning!) runs
deep in you.
You are very open-minded
and deeply curious about distant places and ways of thinking
and living that are different from your own. The urge to
travel widely and to experience as much of the world as
possible is very strong in you. The study of philosophy
or religion also interests you a great deal. You benefit
from your contact with other cultures, and you may be involved
in linking those who are far apart geographically or philosophically.
You are likely to become
involved with social improvements and may be attracted to
religious and philosophical concerns or more unusual kinds
of activity. Most likely you will be able to obtain immense

Chapter 8: Areas That
Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You fear becoming emotionally
dependent upon others, and may distance yourself or deny
your needs for closeness and intimacy so that you won't
be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other
hand, you may cling excessively or need constant reassurance
from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense
of security, as well as the ability to give and receive
nurturing are important tasks for you.
You may have nebulous but
ever-present guilts and fears that are difficult to pinpoint
or eradicate. It's as if you don't trust Life itself, and
are always seeking ways to defend yourself from its dangers
and its unknowns. You must learn to overcome your ingrained
habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world
more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
You have an inner conflict
between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt
and oppression by limitations and practical realities. You
need to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve
your aspirations. You will grow by learning to accept frustration
and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns
of behavior which you instinctively and habitually revert
to when under stress - a mostly unconscious process and
one which you are apt to overdo because it is so familiar
and thus easy for you. The direction you need to follow
in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness
is also described.
It is easy for you to become
distracted from your purpose by the multitude of interesting
choices, possibilities, and options available to you. You
need to develop single mindedness and focus. Until you direct
your attention to some of the big questions, such as "What
is my life's purpose?" "What is really important
to me and essential to my happiness?", you are apt
to dabble, to scatter your energies in many directions engaging
in activities which are entertaining but which are ultimately
not fruitful or nourishing.
Having an overall vision
for your life and aligning your daily activities so that
they support rather than detract from your larger purpose,
is a significant step in your unfoldment.
The arena you are most likely
to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression,
games or sports, and creativity. Try to develop any artistic,
expressive, creative potentials you feel you possess, utilizing
the qualities described above.
You have a tendency to shy
away from other people, and you react toward others in an
almost fearful way. You seem to lack confidence in yourself
and for this reason may feel that you lack the ability to
adapt easily to others.

Chapter 9: Originality
Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
Your childhood or your relationship
with your parents was unsettling or unstable in some way,
so that you may never have felt that you had firm ground
beneath your feet. One of your parents may have been unusual,
eccentric, or an inconstant influence in your life. Abrupt
changes in location or in family relationships may have
made you feel insecure, but positively you were given more
freedom and less pressure to conform to conventions, which
enables you to be more of an individual and less tethered
to restrictive ideas of how one "should" behave,
feel, or live.
Your creative self-expression
has a very imaginative quality, and you have a particular
affinity for drama, theater, film, and other artistic mediums
in which creative fantasy plays a major role.
In love and romance, also,
you often have glamorous fantasies that have little to do
You have a probing, penetrating
mind and are highly analytical and critical in your thinking.
Work that involves research, investigating mysteries or
hidden causes, or deep study and analysis suits you very
You are also a convincing
speaker, bringing others around to your own point of view
by the intensity of your convictions.

but you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by
The first topic is "The
Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group".
In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge, even
compulsion, of your age group. This deeply felt drive comes
to the surface with great force and power, and consequently
leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The
second topic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age
Group", that describes the dreams, fantasies, and spiritual
aspirations of your age group. The third and last topic
is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group",
which describes areas in which your age group tends to be
innovative, inventive, unusual, and also where it may be
unstable and unreliable.
The characteristics described
below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few
years to about 30 years. There are one or more different
astrological factors described in each of the three sections
The Subconscious and
Emotional Drive of Your Age Group
You are part of a 12 year
group of people who are deeply interested in personal relationships.
Your age group has a deeply-rooted yearning to see people
relating and communicating with each other effectively and
harmoniously. There is little egotism and a willingness
to hear the other person's side of the story and a readiness
to compromise and arbitrate different points of view. In
fact, the need for harmonious, peaceful relationships is
so strong that there is a tendency to overlook real differences
and to focus only on the similarities in an attempt to bring
different parties into harmony with each other.
Interest in psychology and
sociology is high in your age group. There is a tremendous
heightening of awareness of social skills. Your age group
will experiment with different marriage styles, family relationships,
and even business relationships in an attempt to bring fair
treatment and effective communication between people. Interest
and appreciation for other cultures is also strong, and
your age group will work hard to preserve and support the
cultural heritage of all ethnic groups.
Your strong yearning for
equitable and harmonious relationships is also reflected
in major advancements in trade agreements, arms control,
and international cooperation that are designed and implemented
by your generation. These agreements and policies foster
a much safer and more cooperative environment for all, although
there is also a tendency for greedy individuals to take
advantage of the conciliatory atmosphere and twist situations
to their own ends.
In short, you are part of
a generation of individuals who are deeply interested in
other people; you are a humanistic and humanitarian group.
You will struggle and experiment with personal relationships,
and forge new models for how people can relate as friends,
family members, and members of nations as well.
The Ideals and Illusions
of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year
group of people that are extremely idealistic and farsighted
in their dreams. Your age group is very liberal and expansive
in outlook, and consequently churches become much more flexible
and more eclectic in their approach during your life time.
Religions that do not adapt to the broad-minded attitude
of your age group simply are unable to attract very much
interest and involvement from you.
A great deal of metaphysical
musing and speculation is evident in your age group, and
there is a very strong interest in all manner of psychic
phenomena, UFO's, prophecy, etc. This interest will open
many new doors and insights, but will also often lead to
a great deal of fantasizing and speculation that is taken
more seriously than it should be.
The entire generation to
which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual
rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon you
or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from
an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek the depths.
What is New and Different
in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year
group of people who strive for greater equality in relationships.
You treat parents, children, and spouses much more like
friends and equals than other generations do, and many of
you will experiment with alternative marriage styles that
allow for greater freedom and equality in relationships.
