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.
Your life is apt to be full of emotional extremes, turbulence,
joy and sorrow, arising out of your own passionate nature and
unpredictability. You are impulsive and temperamental. For you,
everything is intensely personal and colored by emotion. You may
have difficulty viewing a situation from a detached, impartial or
rational perspective, and you have little inclination to structure
and order your life. However, developing self-discipline,
organization, and focus is essential. Otherwise you will be prone to
tremendous moodiness, alternating between high inspiration and
At times you feel much internal pressure, for you have two strong
impulses which can be in conflict with one another. The desire for
independence and freedom, the need for self expression and ego
recognition, and an urge to leave the past behind in order to propel
yourself into new experiences may be at odds with other, equally
strong needs: attachments to people and to the familiar, a
compelling urge for emotional closeness and union, and a desire for
security. Balancing these two drives is a significant challenge for
Even though your life is less even and perhaps less stable than
others', most likely you would not change it, for you are very
alive, sensitive, and responsive to the ever-changing, dynamic
quality of life.
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.

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 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, and to 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 non-rational, you are often unable
to give a clear, simple explanation for your actions. Something
either feels right, or it does not.
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, paternal nature.
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 and 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 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.
In significant ways, your emotional nature and personal needs are
at odds with the way you present yourself. As a result of this
inconsistency, you may be uncomfortable showing your instinctive
responses and true feelings. You may put them aside, maybe even be
ashamed of them.
When you are in an emotionally charged situation, those who do
not know you well may be quite surprised at your reactions or
behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept
yourself, so that you do not act as if your emotional needs and
impulses did not count for very much.
You are likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless
environment. You need your freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate
and combative toward others at times. You have a strong desire to
exceed your limits, even if it means having to use force.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
In addition to your strong personal loyalties and the devotion
you feel for your nearest and dearest relationships (as described in
the previous chapter), you have great compassion and sensitivity to
people of all walks of life. You have a gift for understanding and
appreciating a wide variety of art styles and life styles.
Also, be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. Your
good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make you a victim
of others' greed. If this happens, do not allow yourself to become
bitter and resentful towards life, but instead allow your great
compassion and sensitivity to grow and shine rather than be dimmed
by a few mistakes.
At heart you are very gentle, impressionable, and receptive - a
dreamer. The world of your imagination, feelings, and intuition is
as real to you as anything in the outer world, though you may have
trouble verbalizing or interpreting your inner experiences in a way
others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and
imaginative, you have a rich inner life, though you may seem rather
unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. You usually keep to yourself.
You have great sensitivity and empathy with others, and you often
sense things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct.
You are tolerant, forgiving, and nonjudgmental, accepting people
unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward
appearance. You have deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow
creature and often feel others' pain as if it were your own. You
sympathize with the needy, the disadvantaged, and the misfits of
society. You are capable of giving selflessly, living a life of
devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician,
social worker, or minister. However, you tend to give
indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of your kindness, and
to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon you.
You have little sense of boundaries, of limits, of knowing when to
say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not your
You are a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and you
try to avoid open conflict. You will patiently ignore or "tune
out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather
than directly confronting them, and you tend to lack the positive
fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges.
You are fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. You do
things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Your gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic,
or musical, for you have a great sensitivity, inspiration, and
limitless imagination. You respond very strongly to beauty and to
Your faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to
wallow in self-pity rather than taking strong, definite action to
change your life for the better. You also tend to become so detached
from your immediate environment that you live in a disorderly,
chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those
around you more than it bothers you.
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.
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.
You undergo deep, transformative changes in your life with
relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because you do
not avoid the depths, you have access to a lot of personal power and
strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, you are apt to have
quite a potent effect on the people you come into contact with, even
superficially. Others sense that you are a force to be reckoned
You have a harmonious balance between your body, soul and spirit.
You enjoy intellectual challenges from others, but tend to form your
own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. You may be interested
in studying human nature and matters of health.
You are warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially
with the opposite sex. Your happy feelings rub off onto others and
everyone enjoys being with you. Due to a protective and encouraging
upbringing, your relationships with your parents are good.
Your courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and
you are prone to worry a lot. Fear of your own inadequacies could
distort your perspective and deplete your strength to go on in the
direction you have chosen.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
Outspoken and direct, you are always eager to express your ideas
and opinions and do not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up
a little controversy. You have fresh, original ideas and much
enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has
worn off, you are interested in another new idea or project. You
never seem to have enough time to do all you want to. You are very
honest, speak decisively and convincingly about things you believe
in, and are unable to pretend to agree with someone if you honestly
do not. You may be somewhat deficient in tact.
You think a great deal about your career, your reputation and
public image, and the way you make a contribution or impact on the
world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind
is likely to be an important aspect of the work you do.
Your mind is serious and deep, and you will rarely offer an
opinion on any matter until you have thoroughly considered and
studied it. You have excellent powers of concentration and enjoy
studying or thinking deeply in solitude. You have an aptitude for
research or doing mental work which requires precise, organized
thinking, attention to detail, and a methodical approach. You are
conservative and something of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded
and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or
scientific verification of them. Socially, you are rather reserved,
uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous
You will notice that the description below contradicts some of
the statements made in the previous paragraphs. Above your thinking
is depicted as careful, conservative, methodical, and possibly
narrow or rigid, while the following information characterizes your
mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! You incorporate both
ways of thinking - the inspired, inventive and the deductive,
ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Your mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes
brilliant way, and you grasp new concepts very readily. However,
your retention may be poor, as you tend to leap from one idea to
another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of
them. Your mind may race so quickly that it is hard for you to sit
still for any length of time. You have a highly sensitive nervous
system and need a relatively calm, stable environment to be at your
best. Avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay
You have good powers of perception and visualization and an
intense imagination. Greatly inspired, you feel optimistic and
hopeful for the future. You are likely to talk a lot about your
plans and also are inclined to put on an act at times.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Open and generous, you enjoy a wide circle of friends and
acquaintances and you thrive on sociability and fellowship. You are
adventurous, playful, freedom-loving, and always ready for a good
time. You rarely allow obstacles or difficulties to keep you down,
for no matter how bleak the past or present, you always expect a
better, brighter future. In fact, you are uncomfortable with your
own or other people's problems and emotional pain. You often try to
"cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are
hurting, but unwittingly you avoid or ignore the emotions involved.
Friendship means a great deal to you, perhaps even more than love
relationships or romance. For you to be happy, your mate must be
your best friend and encourage your aspirations and ideals. You also
need a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
You have a sympathetic nature and instinctively reach out to
people in need of help. You also have a deeply ingrained tendency to
want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can
be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or
"helped" in this way. For you, affection and caring must
be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
You feel that little, daily acts of caring and thoughtfulness are
essential to the happiness and success of relationships and you know
how to make others feel accepted, loved, and cherished. You enjoy
good relationships with women.
Your love feelings and desires are easily aroused but it may be
difficult to sustain your romantic interest in relationships after
the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". You enjoy a
partner who is dynamic and alive, someone with a strong independent
streak, and you do not like things to become too peaceful or
predictable in the love arena. You want to see sparks fly once in
awhile, even if that means instigating a fight.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make you very
happy. You want to contribute something positive and loving to the
world at large and you want to be recognized for your beauty,
artistic gifts, or loving generosity. You may "marry" your
work - that is, being more involved in your career than in your
private life. You are a natural host or diplomat.
Your constitution tends to be on the weak side and you may tire
easily. In love relationships you could be somewhat reserved and
have a tendency toward platonic relationships. On the other hand,
you also could have questionable romances that leave you

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are serious about your ambitions, and disciplined, dedicated,
and tenacious in pursuing your objectives. Your drive and energy are
directed toward practical material accomplishment and achieving
concrete results. You also strive to be in a position of authority
and social influence; you enjoy being the person who is in command.
You are hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort
in order to achieve your long-range goals. You can easily become a
workaholic and are very responsible and conscientious about doing a
Realistic and pragmatic, you are an excellent strategist. You
attain success by formulating a conservative and workable plan and
following through with it. You are not a gambler when it comes to
attaining your goals; you depend on your own efforts and
perseverance rather than good fortune. You have a natural shrewdness
and instinct for business or organizational management.
You are attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and
you seem to need a lot of fireworks in your personal relationships.
You can be very combative, or get involved with people who are.
Ideally you will join with people who are energetic and ambitious,
but not too domineering or aggressive.
You have a strong sense of mission and you instinctively know
that to achieve anything great, one must eliminate superfluous
activities, and give oneself wholly to the goal one wishes to
accomplish. Your zeal, enthusiasm, and clarity of purpose enable you
to succeed and to achieve whatever you aim for. You have a strong
will, but you are usually quiet and understated about it.
You may have to overcome something in your background or personal
past in order to achieve your long-range goals and ambitions.
Sometimes you are apt to feel pulled in two different directions -
what others expect of you or what you need to do to progress, versus
what your old conditioning or your emotional predisposition would
have you do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your strength lies in your ability to be innovative, open to new
progressive concepts, willing to experiment and to reject customs
and traditions when they cease to serve any positive function in the
present. Also, you have an expansive view of the world, one that
includes humanity and not only your own small, personal circle.
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 relationships
with other cultures, and you may be involved in linking those who
are far apart geographically or philosophically.
Your gaiety, enthusiasm, optimism, and a positive, energetic,
upbeat attitude generate a lot of opportunities for you. You enjoy
being spontaneous and taking risks. You must have a great deal of
personal freedom and independence, and prefer the "wide-open
spaces" to a very rigid, structured lifestyle. Your sense of
humor and playfulness enable you to make it through the rough spots
in life, as well as to bounce back when those gambles you make do
not quite pan out. You enjoy surprises and exploring new territory,
both intellectually as well as physically.
You aim high, have great vision, and are never satisfied with
yourself unless you can achieve your goals in a big way. You are
very opportunistic and are always ready to capitalize on a good
idea. You utilize your relationships with prominent and successful
people to advantage, and are likely to win yourself an important and
lucrative position in life.
You are very generous, tactful and sociable and have an inner
need for public recognition. Your integration into the community is
harmonious and because of this, you are likely to achieve success in
You have abundant powers of imagination and fantasy and could do
well in some artistic endeavor, if you are so inclined. You also are
intuitively aware of what others are feeling, giving you a very
sympathetic and compassionate attitude.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have difficulty asserting your will and desires directly and
openly. You also may suppress your anger and aggressiveness.
Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in yourself are
important tasks for you.
You are very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with your
duty, your public image and reputation, and becoming a person of
stature in the world. You understand the need for hard work and
careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and you
are capable of much self-discipline and patience once you set your
sights on a goal.
But you are very judgmental and hard on yourself if you fail to
attain success, and you can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the
world does not recognize your efforts.
The side of you that wants and needs structure, order, stability,
and a disciplined way of life is at odds with your urges for
unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt
to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at
times you find it hard to relax. You may act out in a rebellious way
now and then, or clamp down hard on yourself, in an attempt to
strictly control your "wild" impulses. Your task is to try
to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in
You tend to be shy, sensitive and stiff with your emotions and
may have difficulty expressing your true feelings, even though your
affection for someone is there. One of your parents may have been
too strict and unloving, and so you may fear close relationships.
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
Your path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings,
being concerned with how your actions impact the world at large,
perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of your life
style and personal choices or becoming active politically.
Participating in organizations that support your ideals is one way
to do this.
When under stress you are likely to become overly focused on
yourself and your own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" your
focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, you need to strike a balance between doing for yourself
and doing for others, by discovering how your unique gifts can
contribute to the good of all.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in
relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in
particular where you and another have merged emotionally, legally,
or financially. You will see these issues arise in close
partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual
dependency on one another. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and
legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources
is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support you in
your growth. These may or may not feel natural to you, and often
there is some feeling of resistance or initial awkwardness about
doing these things, but they are important on your path to
Be a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active
approach to life and to any problems you face. Act on your own
behalf instead of stalling, waiting, or hoping someone else will do
it for you. Assert yourself openly and courageously and do not be
afraid to make mistakes or fall down. Any new initiative is likely
to have a few trial runs. Stir up a healthy fighting spirit, pick
yourself up, and go! Appreciate conflict and confrontation as a way
You have an inspiring, trustworthy and courteous manner, bringing
lots of friends and acquaintances with similar interests into your
life. Your parental home probably is very harmonious and you feel
strongly connected with your family.

Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive:
You grasp new concepts quickly and are interested in new
technologies, discoveries, and innovations. Unconventional ideas and
creative, original approaches to problems are very attractive to you
also. You get bored easily and may have trouble concentrating on one
idea or task at a time. You have an inventive mind.
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

organizations of any kind. Any such group you become involved in is
likely to be either for intense personal growth, change, and
healing, or centered around social change and revising society in
You have a tendency to act with speed and may not think things
through very carefully. You are likely to make impulsive decisions
without adequate forethought and should make sure to be in a
position where you can change your mind, for you may do it often.
Although you seem to have a very strong power of resistance, you
have great need for independence and strive to break free from
stifling situations. You tend to be somewhat irritable and easily
angered and are able to give as well as take under provocation.

Chapter 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 focuses on the subconscious and emotional drive
of this 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 about the ideals and illusions of your age group, which
describes the dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your
age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and
different in your age group; it highlights 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
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group:
You are part of a 30 year group of people who are highly
motivated by practical concerns. There is a very strong
psychological need to feel that there is a firm foundation and a
solid basis for one's life. There is an irresistible urge to make
sure that the basics are taken care of and everything is built on a
solid foundation. Consequently, your generation works hard to
improve the economy, ensure adequate food supplies, maintain and
build roads and buildings, increase productivity, and develop other
facilities that are essential foundations for a healthy, thriving
There is a strong tendency to measure the value of something by
its utilitarian value. For example, in education and research the
emphasis is on ideas of practical value and there is little support
for more purely theoretical research.
Your generation is pragmatic and productive, and is driven by a
need to build and improve tangible things. This concern with
practical affairs often becomes unbalanced, and a rampant
materialism with little regard for humanitarian, ethical, and
spiritual values often develops in your age group.
There is also a strong sensual craving in your age group, and a
great deal of emphasis is placed on physically comfortable
surroundings and good food. Romance is particularly important to
your age group, and a great emphasis is also placed on the physical
attractiveness of the opposite sex.
A small minority of members of your age group are likely to be
uncomfortable with the practical and materialistic atmosphere of the
times, and consequently become alienated and antagonistic towards
the social norm.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group:
You are part of a 14 year group of people that are very practical
and down-to-earth in their religious philosophy and spiritual
outlook. Your age group incorporates its ideals and visions into
everyday life, and invests more time and energy than other
generations in beautification projects, developing parks and
recreation areas, and preserving beautiful or unique natural
wildlife areas. Building construction is also done with careful
attention to the aesthetic quality, and your generation finds it
difficult to understand how other age groups can erect buildings
with so little aesthetic appeal.
Your age group does not speculate a great deal about spiritual
and metaphysical matters. You are more involved in utilizing your
imagination and intuition in practical, artistic ways rather than
exploring metaphysical issues. Some of the art and music of your
generation is among the world's most beautiful.
What is New and Different in Your Age Group:
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.
