Section 1: 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.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, you are a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, you frequently have a jaundiced view of such things. You are rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even something of a cynic. Often the world doesn’t seem like a safe, friendly place to you, and you tend to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. You are generally calculating and careful, and are rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
You are pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning your moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. You are willing to work long and persistently for what you want and you often do things the hard way. You do not expect others to take care of you and sometimes refuse or simply don’t seek any outside help. You are often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about your approach. You are very responsible, conscientious, and very concerned with your duties to others and how you appear in society, your “rank” so to speak.
To others you seem mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. You dislike sloppy sentimentality and won’t openly display your feelings, especially the softer ones. You like to always appear poised and in control and hate to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in the armor.
You respect tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and you feel there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often your guide in life, and you in turn develop a great deal of hard-earned wisdom which you like to impart to younger people.
You have a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to your personality. You expect much from yourself and may not give yourself enough room to experiment and make mistakes.
You also tend to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve your money and resources rather than spending, enjoying, or splurging with them. You spend money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in you. You have great self-discipline and self-control and can “do without” very well. Your tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though you may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face you show the world is modest and rather conservative.
Uranus Trine Asc.:
You appear to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses your interest. You infuse your environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, you do enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Pluto Trine Asc.:
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about you that may have little to do with your physical features. It’s an energy, a subtle sexuality, that you emanate. Also, you tend to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Your instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Neptune Sextile Asc.:
You tend to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in your surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of your own. You may project an aura of glamour or “make-believe”, and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
Section 2: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Ascendant in Capricorn and Sun in Scorpio:
Behind your rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described in the previous chapter), you are much more passionate and emotional. You often cover your vulnerability with a facade of toughness or indifference.
Sun in Scorpio:
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, you are not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. You are extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and you allow only a special few into your inner world. Like a wary animal, you are cautious and mistrustful of those you do not know until you “sniff them out”. You are very, very instinctive and intuitive. You usually have a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though you may be unable to clearly articulate why you feel as you do. Your feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
You also have a powerful need for deep emotional involvement and you form very intense love bonds and attachments. You are possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that you perceive as a threat to your bond with someone you love. When you commit yourself to someone or something, you are wholeheartedly devoted and expect complete loyalty in return. You merge with or “marry” the person you love at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for you, and often stormy and nasty. When you have been wounded, you are not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Certainly you will never forget the injury and often you harbor grievances and resentments for a long, long time. Forgiveness doesn’t come easily to you.
Whatever you do, you do with passion and fervor, and you often go to extremes. You are either hot or cold, never lukewarm about anything. You can also be very narrow: either you are 100% involved in something or else it doesn’t exist for you at all. Rarely are you emotionally detached and objective. You definitely have a fanatical streak. You are also immensely strong-willed and your tenacity in pursuing your objectives often borders on being obsessive. Fierce pride, courage, and emotional strength are yours in abundance.
You love mysteries and are deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. You never take things at face value and are always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is REALLY going on. You tend to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Sun in 10th house:
Your career, reputation, and public image are very important to you. You have a strong desire to be influential or make your mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy you; your ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for your unique effort and gifts. You may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Sun Opposition Moon:
Your conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by your unconscious beliefs and desires. If you override your instincts and emotions because they seem to lead you in a direction diametrically opposed to the one you consciously desire, your emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-to-one relationships are also an indication that you are doing this. However, if you attend to your emotional urges and feelings, and listen to the voice of your intuition, dreams, and gut feelings, they will give your life balance and greater satisfaction.
Sun Sextile Uranus:
You are an original! You radiate a sort of electrical excitement about the things you are interested in, and convey this to others, but you get bored rather quickly also. You don’t mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Sun Conjunct Neptune:
Sensitive and imaginative, you are attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. You are impressionable and receptive, and you often have experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. You have an abundance of dreams, visions, and longings, but do not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them concrete. Gentle, idealistic, and peace-loving, you often seek to avoid the hard realities of life. You have an ethereal quality about you.
Sun Sextile Pluto:
You undergo deep, transformative changes in your life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because you don’t avoid the depths, you have access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, you’re apt to have quite a potent effect on the people you come into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that you’re a force to be reckoned with.
Section 3: Your Elemental Nature
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.
Earth and Water are Strong (F,E,A,W Scores = 8,24,0,17):
You are a nurturer and a protector and are prone to what has sometimes been referred to as the “Atlas Syndrome”, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You take your responsibilities to others very seriously and often take on more than your share of their troubles as well. Though you appear (and indeed often are) rather passive, you possess much quiet inner strength and the ability to flow with, endure, and emerge again and again from life’s inevitable adversities. You are apt to be surrounded by people who rely and depend upon you, and though you derive much satisfaction from providing, giving, and being needed, you can also let yourself be drained emotionally and/or financially by taking care of other people and not caring sufficiently for yourself.
You have a very strong need for security and are a “safety-first” creature, disinclined to make sudden changes or to take new directions which involve risk and unpredictability. Any break from the past is very difficult for you and you need a great deal of support when trying to make even healthy and positive changes in your life or habits. (“Habit” is a key word for you; you’re apt to be very attached to yours!)
You are very retentive. You hold on to (sometimes cling to) the people, places, and ways which you are familiar with. You also tend to both hold in and hold on to feelings, and you may need to learn to express and let go of old feelings and past conditioning.
Physically, you are apt to be hearty and substantial, with a tendency to be stout. Unless other astrological factors indicate otherwise, you can also be downright lazy, especially when it comes to exercise. You instinctively choose comfort over challenge. (This is true in a broader sense as well, not only regarding physical exercise).
Your strengths include depth of feeling, patience, and generosity. The qualities you need to cultivate include initiative, openness to change and new experience, and a stronger sense of self.
Air is Weak (F,E,A,W Scores = 8,24,0,17):
You tend to lack the ability to analyze yourself or your life in a detached, objective way. You feel and experience but do not necessarily understand or reflect upon your experience, and thus find it hard to communicate or talk about it. Really taking in what someone else has to say can be hard for you – you do not readily adapt to new ideas or people, and as a result may become inflexible or limit your experience of life. A broadening education and exposure to different cultures and types of people is very beneficial to you. Otherwise you are apt to be rigid and even prejudiced against those outside your own circle. (Arthritic conditions, poor flexibility, or poor circulation may reflect this).
You also tend to distrust people who are free with words or to feel inferior to those who are more articulate and intellectual than yourself. You learn much more readily by watching, doing, or apprenticing than by reading or by being told about something.
Section 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
Mercury in Sagittarius:
You possess vision and foresight, and your mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans, and goals for the future. You are interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. The study of philosophy, religion, politics, or education is of interest to you, and you are more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. You are not inclined to focus on any one practical, concrete area; you find it irksome to deal with details and particulars. You have a gambling instinct and enjoy speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising, and promotion would be good areas for you also.
Mercury in 11th house:
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.
Mercury Square Saturn:
You have an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to your careful, methodical approach, attention to detail, and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. You have good powers of concentration and enjoy studying and thinking in solitude. You can get wrapped up entirely in your own thoughts and completely engrossed in some small detail. You are slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in your work. Conservative and something of a skeptic, you may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea which has no concrete proof or scientific verification. You prefer dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. You may also be distrustful or fearful of anything you cannot understand with your rational mind. You are well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.
Mercury Conjunct Sun/Venus
You have a charming disposition and love to socialize and meet new people. You also like to be surrounded by beautiful things and like to talk to others about your views on love problems as well as your views on beauty, fashion and art in general.
Mercury Opposition Moon/Jupiter
Your reasoning and judgment is sound and you are good-natured, friendly and helpful. You think in large spheres and are likely to have far-reaching plans. You have the desire to learn and study and may be interested in religion, journalism and travel.
Mercury Conjunct Mars/Neptune
You tend to idealize your actions or situation, which could lead to misguided endeavors. Uncertain about your goals, you have a tendency to stray from your original purpose and could be disillusioned with the results.
Section 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Moon in Taurus:
Even-tempered and peace-loving, you are not easily ruffled and are rarely given to emotional displays. You have a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, you are tremendously stubborn and will resist any change which requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in your home life or marriage.
You seek security and loyalty in love, are extremely devoted to your loved ones, and provide a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, you tend to cling and seek to keep others from changing.
A great deal of physical affection, closeness, and touching is essential to your well-being, and you have a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times you substitute food for emotional comfort and love.
Moon in 4th house:
You have strong attachments to your past, the place where you grew up, your heritage, and family traditions. In fact, you may be unable to step out of the habits and roles you learned as a child. Your tie to your mother is very strong and you also seek mothering and protection from your spouse and other family members as well.
Moon Sextile Saturn:
You are dedicated to the people you care about and conscientious about meeting your responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness are very important to you and so, therefore, are the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.
You’re apt to do more than your fair share in the family, to go the extra mile, but this is satisfying rather than burdensome to you for the most part.
Moon aspects Saturn and Uranus:
In addition to your rather introverted, serious, or self-contained side, you have a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. You crave both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make you rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance one another. Your more free and unpredictable side will now be described.
Moon Trine Uranus:
You are uninhibited and spontaneous and will often do something unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their ruts. You crave emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises, and anything new. You love to feel free and unfettered.
Moon Trine Pluto:
You enjoy emotional intensity and are attracted to the mysterious, the unknown, and to dangerous or challenging experiences which draw on all of your inner resources. You are able to handle an emotional crisis very well, and you are interested in the deep roots of emotional problems and how to cure them. You insist on bringing feelings between people out into the open, for you want real closeness and intimacy with others, without barriers or secrets.
Venus in Capricorn:
You are definitely not one to wear your heart on your sleeve. You care very much about others’ opinions and crave love and appreciation as much as anyone, but one would never know it from your reserved and seemingly detached appearance. Casual, superficial relationships don’t interest you at all. You are cautious and serious about love and really desire a deep, genuine, lasting love. You are old-fashioned about courtship and love, and will remain faithful to your loved one in good times and in bad.
You may be attracted to persons older than yourself, someone who is emotionally mature and reliable and who can provide the security you desire.
Venus in 12th house:
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.
Venus Opposition Jupiter:
Money is apt to be an issue in your life, not because you do not have it but because you can not or will not hold on to it. You have a free-handed, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment rather than save, discipline yourself, or budget. At your worst, you want an easy ride, and friends will often let you freeload because you are such an agreeable, friendly, pleasant sort. Or, you could let other people take advantage of your hospitality and tolerance.
You also avoid confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. You just want to have a good time.
Section 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
Mars in Sagittarius:
You are aspiring, enterprising, and forever following some bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potentials. You are definitely “upwardly mobile” in either a material or spiritual sense (or both). You aim high and are not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. You like to stretch your limits, to see how far you can go, and to take risks. You are a positive thinker, expect success for yourself, and are philosophical about failures. You are flexible and bounce back from disappointment rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea you want to try. Your enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable you to enlist the aid and support you need for your projects. However, you sometimes promise more than you can actually achieve, because you are overly optimistic or pay insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
You also tend to get distracted and to have too many things going at once. Although it is very difficult for you, there are times when you simply must develop commitment, perseverance, and persistence in order to make your dreams and goals a concrete reality. Too often you fall short of what you could attain because you are unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
You also enjoy competition and usually do not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel your energy.
Mars in 12th house:
Asserting yourself and being direct and forceful about what you want is very often difficult for you. Though you may have a great deal of energy and drive, you lack confidence or simply the desire to put yourself and your interests first. Positively you can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for yourself.
You deny your own desires and needs too much, however, and you are likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage your finest efforts.
Mars Opposition Jupiter:
You have an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit and the instincts for big success. Competition and rivalry spurs you on to do your best, and to push past your limits. You enjoy taking initiative, and have positive expectations which generate positive results. At times, you are overconfident, cocky, and vainglorious, though. Sports and business are both suitable arenas for you.
Mars Conjunct Saturn/MC
You tend to feel lonely and cut off from people. Feeling defenseless and a lack of initiative, you have a tendency to give up too easily. Because of your inner conflicts, you may have to deal with depression a lot and may acquire a certain fear of the future.
Mercury Sextile MC:
Your profession is apt to involve communications, language, carrying messages, sales, speaking, or teaching — put simply, getting ideas across. A great deal of social involvement, networking, and personnel skills also play a significant part in your professional role.
Moon Quincunx MC:
Often you feel like you’re being pulled in two directions –what you need to do to fulfill your long-range ambitions, and what you actually feel like doing. This may make it difficult for you to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
Relationships with women, trying to satisfy family needs, or other emotional attachments sometimes also conflict. Often you have to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
Saturn Quincunx MC:
To achieve your ambitions and long-range goals will require much stamina and self-reliance as well as a clearly defined strategy. Numerous setbacks, obstructions or delays can also be expected. A father figure, mentor, or authority in your life may withdraw support at a crucial time. However, this will not stop you and may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.
MC Opposition Moon/Saturn
Your self-control is well developed and you are patient, cautious and responsible. You know that success comes with hard work and are willing to do your share. You like to be by yourself and do your own thing, but at times also may feel lonely and deserted.
MC Opposition Jupiter/Asc.
You have a strong desire to acquire wealth and may have the good fortune to live in affluent circumstances. Your pleasant and harmonious personality makes you very popular, and you probably will have a large circle of friends.
Section 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Jupiter in Cancer:
You make others feel accepted and comfortable. You have a knack for breaking down feelings of alienation and you make others feel included and a part of group activities. You have a loving, protective side that wants to take care of everyone. Creating a supportive atmosphere that is nourishing both to yourself and to others is one of your strengths.
Also, your home and heritage are important to you, and you maintain close connections to your past.
Jupiter in 6th house:
You have a positive and constructive attitude toward work and what other people might consider drudgery. You enjoy helping people improve their lives, and the more service you render, the more benefits and rewards you find coming back to you. Promoting health in some manner is a very good avenue for you.
Jupiter Opposition Mercury/Asc.
You are cheerful and very sociable and have a strong desire to participate in pleasurable entertainment. Your exchange of ideas and thoughts with others is inclined to be very lively, and you are fond of conferences or discussions.
Jupiter Opposition Venus/Mars
You are vivacious and strongly attracted to the opposite sex. You are able to give and receive love and are concerned that your partner enjoy the relationship as much as you do. You have a strong need for affection and are likely to have happy relationships.
Section 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
Saturn in Pisces:
You often have a sense of longing or homesickness for something you cannot name or specify, and you may have both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for you.
Saturn in 2nd house:
Your fears revolve around money and material security, and you work very hard to ensure that your assets are solid. You may be very conservative, even stingy, with your money because you are afraid there won’t be enough. You may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Saturn Opposition Jupiter/Neptune
Lacking confidence in yourself, you have the feeling that your luck has abandoned you. You are inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, placing too much emphasis on wishful thinking and are disappointed when nothing happens.
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.
N. Node in Gemini:
You need to take what you have learned (either through formal education or your own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it, express it in a way others can benefit from. Knowledge and understanding which does not enhance the quality of life for yourself and others in your world is of little real value. Putting your understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in your daily interactions with people, and in the multiple small choices you make everyday will enable you to really test your belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress you are apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Cultivate your ability to live in the present!
N. Node in 5th house:
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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or which you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
N. Node Opposition Mercury:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing, talking, and overuse or misuse of your intellectual abilities, as well as dissipating your energy in trivial activities.
N. Node Opposition Sun/Mars
You are a born leader and have the ability to persuade members of a group or association you belong to. You always promote the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings you may pursue.
Section 9: Originality and Imagination
Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
Uranus in 9th house:
You are unconventional, even iconoclastic, in your attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics. You tend to see traditional religion as restrictive, meaningless ritual with little to offer you, and you’re eager to experiment with other, alternative pathways. You have lots of creative, innovative ideas and you often feel that others are unwilling to take risks and venture out of their deeply ingrained perspectives and views.
Neptune in 11th house:
You are idealistic in your social and political outlook, and your ideals may impel you to join clubs, organizations, communities of like-minded people, or groups that share your vision and your concerns.
Pluto in 9th house:
You have strong philosophical views and there are times in your life when you passionately crusade for a cause that you deem noble and of utmost importance. Although your intentions are good, you are not as objective as you think you are, and your views are more colored by personal experiences and concerns than you realize. Nevertheless, you can also be instrumental in bringing about positive change if you can avoid being dogmatic. Also, you may radically change or revise your own personal beliefs, even your most cherished convictions, many times during your life.
Uranus Opposition Moon/Asc.
You get excited easily and tend to raise yourself into an emotional state with the possibility of losing your self-control. You are very restless and display a degree of nervousness when you are with other people.
Uranus Conjunct Mercury/Jupiter
You are inquisitive and curious and have great interest in novelties. You have the gift of replying with a swift witty answer when challenged, and flexible in thinking, you change your plans quickly if necessary, and always seem to make the right choice.
Uranus Opposition Venus/N. Node
You seem to like everyone and have the ability to make contacts with people easily. Romance may come to you quite suddenly, but your affairs may not be lasting. You like variety and change your interest in people quickly.
Neptune Conjunct Mars/MC
You tend to have feelings of defeat and weariness and that you are unable to succeed. You could be excessively concerned about yourself and may think that what you are doing is worthless and pointless.
Neptune Conjunct Uranus/Asc.
You respond quickly to people around you, but may find yourself emotionally drained frequently by contacts with restless people in your environment. Some of your relationships also could turn out to be disappointing because of deceptive indications.
Neptune Conjunct Pluto/Asc.
You are subject to frequent behavioral problems with people in your environment and should use care not to become involved with certain characters who may put you in embarrassing situations. You also should guard against dishonest people who may try to deceive you.
Pluto Opposition Moon/Asc.
Because of your emotional need to be in control and dominate others, your relationships, especially with women, may not always be harmonious. You must try to control your compulsive behavior, or you may end up in a relationship with tragic consequences.
Pluto Opposition Venus/N. Node
You like to be the center of attraction and know how to put on a good show. You have a tendency to want to force admiration and love and may consider affection as some kind of instrument for power.
Section 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group
In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may not share all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by your generation.
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 below.
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group
Pluto in Virgo:
You are part of a 15 year group of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and a clear sense of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious drive to straighten out all the world’s evils and create a world of perfect order. There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque. Oddly enough, there is also often a fascination with these very things that are so distasteful, and often a feeling of hopelessness and despair about the world’s condition.
These inner, emotional and conflicting qualities are reflected in the attitudes and life styles of your generation. Most people of your age group are conservative and ethical, and a small minority goes to the opposite extreme and relishes being strange or unusual in appearance, and sloppy or even grotesque in manners and appearance. There seems to be no middle ground for your generation. Usually, the rebellious type of behavior comes out during adolescence, and tends to subside thereafter, and your age group tends to be very conservative in later life.
Your age group is not very good at compromising and tends to have strong ideas about what is right and what is wrong. There is a strong feeling that you must extinguish evil in the world. Certainly, fostering good works is very commendable, but a categorical and simple-minded response to complex issues is not helpful. Your age group will undergo great transformations in attitudes regarding Good and Evil and will swing to great extremes. Your generation will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.
Uranus Conjunct Pluto:
You were also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. You are part of a group of people who can be explosive and even violent in their reactions to situations. You do not tolerate being restricted, and your age group rebels with force and anger against oppressive situations.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
Neptune in Scorpio:
You are part of a 14 year group of people that have very intense psychic sensitivity and imagination. Your age group is very attracted to the strange, weird, and unusual. The sense of the macabre and bizarre is strong, and this is reflected in much of the music, art, and fashions of your age group. Novels and movies with mystery and chilling suspense are also popular with your age group. Emotional depression, drug use, and suicide are likely to be relatively high in your age group. There is also a deep mystical sense, and Eastern religions and meditation are very attractive to your age group.
Uranus Sextile Neptune:
You are quite open to psychic experiences and altered states of consciousness, and do not have to work very hard to achieve them. You belong to an idealistic, free-thinking group of people who will advance the spiritual progress of humankind as a whole.
Neptune Sextile Pluto:
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
Uranus in Virgo:
You are part of a 7 year group of people who employ their skills and creativity to bring about a great deal of practical reform in education, medical care, and other social services. Your innovations are not radical or unusual, but they are usually effective.
Your generation also has a curious mixture of both conservative, ethical people, and rebellious, disruptive people. There seems to be little middle ground for your age group, and you swing to one extreme or the other. The conservative people strive to reinstate strict moral standards, want to swiftly punish criminal behavior, and strive to highlight the importance of old-fashioned values in our lives, laws, and overall life style. On the other hand, the rebellious people of your generation are angry at the established way of doing things and act in a defiant, crude, and coarse manner.
