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 possess a measure of all the elements and are thus less
likely than others to overemphasize or completely neglect one
dimension of experience for another. You are capable of both
thinking and feeling, envisioning possibilities and dealing
effectively with the here-and-now. This does not mean that you do
not have definite preferences and attitudes (these will be covered
in the following chapters), nor even that you do not overdo or go
overboard in your own particular way. But you are a more varied and
complex person, less one-sided than many other people are, and you
are able to draw on all of the elemental qualities when appropriate.
In addition, you are able to relate to most people, recognizing a
bit of yourself in their ways and values.

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.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure,
change, exploring new territory, and are not happy confined to the
same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. You have a
strong restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything
you have yet experienced, and you often live in your dreams and
visions for the future. You tend to believe that the grass is
greener somewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally
or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect
something better ahead. You love to have a goal, something to aim
for, but once you achieve it you are on to something else. You are
ever on the lookout for new opportunities and you are a gambler,
willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of
discovering something new is what makes life interesting for you.
You have great faith in life and you bounce back quickly from
disappointment and failure.
Freedom-loving and independent, you cannot tolerate being caged
for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect your need for
freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and
relationships often weigh heavily upon you and you may resist
"growing up" and taking on the limitations of adult life.
You are friendly and outgoing and have a great sense of fun and
playfulness. You are also philosophically minded and often quite
outspoken about your convictions and beliefs. Sometimes you get
carried away with your enthusiasm of the moment and you tend to
exaggerate. You are often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and
you are usually pretty convincing. You do everything in a big way, a
generous way. You like to have the best, and you heartily dislike
stinginess, littleness, or pettiness. Your vision is always large.
You are able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and
principles, and you are well suited to politics, business, higher
education or religion.
Other people see you as a good sport and a good friend, but one
who is not always consistent and dependable. You may also be seen as
a wise person since you do not get bogged down in pettiness and
trivialities, and are able to communicate a larger way of looking at
situations, one that opens up new potentials. You are a person who
believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who
never gives up on life, and you inspire and encourage others to keep
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.
You have a loving and kind-hearted personality and love other
people. You can readily express your love and affection and others
show their affection for you. You probably had a safe and secure
childhood and were allowed to make friendships early in life.
Your family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a
note of gravity to your personality. Somewhat insecure, you may feel
that others restrain you, have doubts about mankind in general and a
fear of failure.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
At heart you are quite different than your exuberant,
freewheeling manner (described in the previous chapter) would
indicate. Although you do get restless and like to move around, home
is also very important to you, and you need security and familiarity
very much (as described in more detail below). At times you may feel
torn between your craving for the comfortable and familiar versus a
taste for the foreign and the unknown. You will need to find a place
in your life for these two contradictory impulses.
You have powerful emotional attachments to the past, your family,
your childhood, and those places you associate with safety and
security and your beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your
roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong are very
important to you. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, you tend to cling
to whatever is dear to you, be it person, familiar place, or
You are sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very sensitive to
the emotional needs of other people. You like to be needed, to care
for others, and you often worry about the people you love. You have
a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and you
center much of your life around your home. You are more concerned
about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or
position in society. Kindness, consideration, and tenderness impress
you more than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
You are primarily emotional and your views are often dominated by
your feelings and by your own personal, subjective experiences,
rather than reason, logic, or abstract principles. It is difficult
for you to judge situations in a fair, objective manner for your
personal sympathies and loyalties usually enter in. You take things
very personally, and sometimes build a wall around yourself to
protect yourself from pain and rejection. You feel rather shy and
vulnerable at heart. You also tend to be moody, experiencing
frequent emotional ups and downs. You need to have a place and time
in your life to withdraw, introspect, dream, and replenish yourself;
otherwise you become cranky and unhappy with those around you.
You function in an instinctive, non-rational manner and like to
immerse yourself in creative activities where you can express your
feelings, imagination, and instincts. You often love to cook, since
it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. You
also have a great affinity for music, because it evokes and
communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put
Your compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are your strong
points. Your faults include an inability to release the past and go
forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be
self-pitying when you meet hardships in life.
You invest a tremendous amount of your creative energy into your
relationships with others, particularly your marriage or other close
partnerships. You feel you need others in order to be all that you
can be, and you are disinclined to solitary activities and
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual
understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which you can
really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of yours.
You tend to see things from your perspective only and to be
rather subjective. You also enjoy talking and expressing your views
but you do not always listen as well. You have a clear mind, a love
of learning and new experiences, and need constant mental
stimulation and activity.
You are imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful,
beautiful, or magical. You are attracted to artistic and creative
pursuits, music, and mysticism. Your spiritual values color your
whole perspective and approach to life. You are idealistic and
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 are somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. You could be a
little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. You like
to flirt and tend to fall in love at first sight, but then transfer
your affections to someone else for no apparent reason.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
You are highly interested in inner, subjective, and personal
issues, and your thinking is based more on feelings, intuition,
personal experiences, and prejudices rather than reason or logic.
Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul
mean little to you. You are empathic and would be an excellent
counselor, for you are a sensitive listener and deeply interested in
a person's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, you
are drawn to education, art, poetry, music, or mythology. You are
not especially confident about speaking in public, but will open up
and share your thoughts in small, intimate groups. You enjoy keeping
a diary or personal journal and reading the chronicles of others'
lives and personal development.
You are often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing,
discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and giving
feedback, and sharing information. You are drawn to intelligent and
verbal people, with whom you can communicate and from whom you can
learn. You love to have an audience to hear your ideas, and you also
appreciate eloquent presentations by others.
You have a sharp tongue and ready wit, and you enjoy intellectual
competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a
debate, you know how to drive your point home. You also possess
quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or
racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange
between the players is a suitable arena for you.
You often seesaw between what your conscious reasoning tells you
versus a belief in things which seem to defy logic. You have a
penchant for thinking big and being able to visualize the future,
but beware of grandiose schemes and exaggerated claims. Oftentimes
the most "far out" theories or speculative ideas seem
perfectly plausible to you, but it would be wise to test these ideas
before you invest too much into them.
Also, you are prone to severe wanderlust at times, so try to see
as much of the world as you can.
Your mind is characterized by a penetrating depth and
thoroughness. You ferret out the facts, and especially enjoy a
problem if there is an element of mystery, darkness, or the
forbidden. Generally, you do not shy away from the truth, no matter
how unpleasant it is.
You have a lot of imagination and fantasies and are able to
control your inner visions by common sense. You have creative and
artistic talents, but are inclined to underestimate your skill. You
could be attracted to art, music, singing or dancing.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
You are not easily moved by emotional displays and can be
curiously detached from your own and others' emotions. It is almost
as if you could turn your feelings on and off at will; you should be
careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for you
could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and
attachments are not as important to you as they are to most people
and you often consider your friends closer to you than your blood
relatives. Certainly, your sympathy and concern extends much beyond
your immediate family. In your personal relationships, you insist
upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue
friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as you choose. You
do not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
You feel comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and
experimental, and you have little taste for convention and
You are likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack
rat in fact - for your belongings give you a sense of security and
continuity with the past, which is important to you. Antiques or
things with sentimental value from your past are especially dear to
You may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions,
keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely
with those outside of your immediate circle.
You have conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate
your personal life and relationships. You may feel that you cannot
depend on your love partner to take care of you or perhaps you
cannot decide what you really want in love relationships: a parent
or a lover. If your needs for emotional sustenance and love are not
satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
Your childhood and early home life was in many ways unsettling
and the nurturing you received was erratic and unreliable at best.
You have had to move a lot, or your family may have had some
conspicuous differences from other people so that you were often an
outsider or "weirdo". As an adult you may long for
"normalcy" while at the same time you balk at any routine,
structure, formality, or restrictions.
When emotionally stressed at all, you often become nervous or
shaky. Developing a regular rhythm and a way of life that is steady
and consistent (if not traditional) would be beneficial to you, both
emotionally and physically.
You are getting quickly excited by other people and probably will
have many relationships that are terminated just as quickly as they
are made. You do not like to be alone and always keep your house
open for your friends and acquaintances.
In love relationships, you are steadfast and loyal, especially if
you have a warm, demonstrative partner. You are very sensually
oriented and need lots of touching and physical affection. You enjoy
being pampered with a good meal, loving massage, or other sensual
delights. You are a wonderful lover, very attentive to the comfort
and enjoyment of the one you love. You are tremendously responsive
to beauty and physical appearances, and the physical attractiveness
of your partner is very important to you.
You love romance and wish the honeymoon phase of your love
relationships would last forever! You need dramatic romantic
gestures and displays of affection from your partner, and you want
to feel very, very special, like a royalty, to your beloved. You
also have an artistic flair and enjoy creating art or beauty in some
Loyalty, fidelity, and security are very important to you in love
relationships. You are cautious about giving your heart away but
true to the one who does win your love. Your tastes are simple, even
austere, and you do not appreciate frivolity. You are interested in
a person's character and inner qualities far more than their
appearance. Casual or superficial relationships do not interest you
at all, for love seems to get deeper and richer and more satisfying
for you with time.
When it comes to love relationships, you are apt to feel pulled
in several directions at once. In addition to your desire for depth
and for security in your relationships, you have an impulsive side
and need a lot of variety and excitement, as discussed in the
following paragraphs. These urges do not have to conflict, but they
certainly can, especially if you act on your spontaneous impulses
without much consideration for their long-term effects on your
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 relationships
- 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.
You tend to be a bit self-centered and willful in love
relationships, but also magnetic. Your desire is always very strong
and you resent authority and like to be different. You also may have
artistic ambitions and always have many new ideas at your disposal.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are a perfectionist and have high standards for your own
work. You often feel that if you want something done right you must
do it yourself, for others do not do as thorough a job as you do.
Doing a task well is very important to you, and you may labor over
minute details that others wouldn't bother with. You strive for
accuracy, efficiency, and precision, and you become very irritable
when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, you can become so much of a perfectionist and
so self-critical that you will not even attempt many activities and
projects, feeling that your efforts simply will not be good enough.
You are usually modest and realistic in assessing what you can
accomplish and, if anything, you underestimate yourself. Of course,
practice makes perfect, and if you do apply yourself diligently in
some area, you gradually gain self-confidence as you master skills
and develop expertise.
You conserve your energy and pace yourself so that you do not
waste or diffuse your efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or
venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit your
opportunities. In short, you may not aim high enough and settle for
too little in life.
You meet numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of
your goals and desires, and your setbacks often occur because you
have been too rash or intent on working your own will regardless of
the impact on others. You are intense and passionate, and simply do
not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a
problem for you.
When you want something, you go after it with passionate zeal and
are sometimes so driven by your desire that you lose all
objectivity. You get so deeply involved in whatever you are pursuing
that you become one-sided, even fanatical. Strong-willed and
stubborn, you insist on having your way no matter the cost. You are
fascinated with power. You often try to overpower anything or anyone
you perceive as an obstacle, if not physically then by the force of
your will. You can be ruthless and impersonal when it comes to
achieving your ambitions and goals in life. You have enormous energy
and are capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement. You
can also become a compulsive workaholic.
You impress others with your strong individuality and your
powerful personality. You put all of your energy into getting ahead
and attaining your ambitions and feel no desire to demonstrate your
abilities to anyone, but your work is likely to be noticed.
You are inclined to be a tyrant and want other people to submit
to your wishes. In your drive to gain power, you could be ruthless
and brutal at times. On the other hand, you may have to struggle to
resist being placed in someone else's hand and power.
You persevere through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays,
and setbacks in order to attain your ambitions in life. Sometimes it
may feel as if you are pushing a boulder uphill. Try to avoid
bitterness or comparing your lot to others', as these could weaken
Your career is apt to involve protecting, caring, and nurturing
in some aspect. Home, family relationships, cherishing the past,
continuing a tradition are also featured. You are apt to be quite
popular through your profession or business.
You are attracted to careers which are somewhat unusual,
creative, or avant-garde, and which offer you a maximum amount of
freedom and independence. The nine-to-five routine is really not
your cup of tea. You may make your living in diversified ways rather
than focusing on one specific area or talent, and you are happiest
when you can create a place in the world for your unique combination
of different talents and interests. It is hard and unnatural for you
to try to fit yourself into a ready-made mold.
Sometimes your emotional or romantic interests detract from your
professional progress and the achievement of your long-range goals.
Friendship with colleagues and especially superiors may be lacking,
or prove to be a detriment to you in a roundabout way. It seems you
must choose either business or pleasure - work or love. These two
arenas simply do not go together very well for you.
Your public image is important to you and you come across in a
confident way. You are very ambitious, strive for material gains and
aim toward wealth and possessions. You will achieve much popularity
because of your harmonious and happy demeanor.
Very community spirited, you have a strong sense of belonging
when you are with other people. You like to establish deep
relationships with others and always strive for close cooperation

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.
Wealth, material well-being, and prosperity are very important to
you, and you would never choose a profession that did not offer you
great promise and opportunity for growth (financial and otherwise).
You are very generous and sometimes careless with money; you do
not want to hold on to it, you want to enjoy it and use it to enrich
your life. Whatever you do with your money, you do in a big way -
making it, spending it, or blowing it! You may accumulate elegant,
high quality things (art, jewelry, etc).
You have a need to escape from the demands of everyday life, and
reach out to something bigger, more exotic, and more exciting.
Traveling is good for you. You may also daydream, fantasize, or
philosophize a great deal.
You are apt to have very strong convictions and beliefs, and some
might say you border on being fanatical. At some point in your life,
the urge to act on these beliefs may put you in a questionable
position with your superiors, or even the law of the land.
On another level, you may have inordinate ambitions and unless
you take care not to overstep yourself, a fall due to greed or
arrogance could result.
Optimistic and enthusiastic, you have a positive outlook on life.
You are convincing and appear like someone who is used to getting
the desired results. This, combined with your competitive and
enterprising nature, makes you a good leader or manager.
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 are diplomatic and have the ability to persuade others to
your point of view. Your viewpoints are very deep and you really
understand what you have learned, making you a good teacher. You are
likely to have great successes and public recognition.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a
long-range goal. You are capable of hard work and persistent labor,
but you may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. You often feel
burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those
who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of
yours which may inhibit you a great deal. You must avoid becoming
heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult
whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative
side of life.
You have a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life
which colors everything you do. Caution and realism are your virtues
though you limit yourself at times by being too careful, shy, or
fearful, and not believing in yourself enough or being assertive
when necessary. Others find you difficult to get to know intimately,
as you tend to distance yourself from them or to put forth a rather
stern, "adult" face to the world.
You dislike tense or frustrating situations and have a strong
desire to free yourself from them. Acting quickly at times, you
suddenly overcome your inner inhibitions. You also have the ability
to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for your
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 developing yourself as an individual,
discovering your own strengths and joys, giving expression to your
uniqueness, and letting yourself shine and stand out from the crowd.
This involve becoming a leader, even though your instinct is
actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the
"chief". When under stress you are apt to seek safety in
numbers, to go along with the group. Also, you may believe that
striving to do your personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish,
but you should let go of this notion. Finding your own center and
doing what gives you delight and energy is the most worthwhile
contribution you can offer the world at large.
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 specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or which
you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods,
Your desire to belong, deep attachments to family and for the
familiar (even if these are not nourishing or helpful), the desire
to "mother" or be mothered by others, and a strong
resistance to cutting the umbilical cord which ties you to past
events and experiences
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
Become more freethinking, be willing to experiment and change,
loosen your attachment to tradition and the known and allow new
developments to occur. Learn and get involved in an area where new
techniques, rapid changes and innovation are happening. Be one of
the avant-garde who is promoting such changes, whether this is in
science, music, or social relationships. You have to be willing to
be different and perhaps considered eccentric or odd.
You have a strong desire to share your opinions with others and
are inclined to seek out people who have the same ideas that you
have. You may enjoy studying and developing your intellectual
interests with them.
Your nature is a bit restless and unpredictable and because of
this, others may see you as somewhat unstable. You are inclined to
involve yourself with unusual enterprises and tend to become overly
excited in the presence of other people.

Chapter 9: Originality and Imagination
Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive:
Your life is characterized by sudden disruptions and events which
change the direction of your life quite unexpectedly. You may be
impatient and reckless at certain times, impulsively acting out your
urge for new life and change. You are an emotionally complex person
and you are capable of intense, unexpected outbursts of feelings and
If you share material assets and resources with another person
(as in a marriage or business partnership), your fortunes are likely
to fluctuate wildly or change quickly for better or worse.
You are a very idealistic person, and you want to see your
ideals, hopes, and dreams made concrete and real in the everyday
world. You are driven to put your ideals into action.
When young you may be rather aimless or confused about your place
in the world. In early adult life it is likely that you struggle to
find ways to express your imagination, fantasies, and ideals in your
career. Work that involves compassionate service (such as medicine
or the ministry) may be your calling. If you lack personal integrity
and honesty, you quickly go to the opposite extreme and you can con
others through dishonesty and trickery. Music, art, film-making or
entertainment are also areas in which you are well-suited.
You are a person of great depth and have a deep interest in the
hidden or darker side of life. Issues and experiences others shun,
you are drawn to and compelled to examine. The use and misuse of
personal, social, and political power intrigues you. Death is also
an area you are fascinated with and may explore in depth. You may
have many experiences in which you are forced to burn your bridges
and start over again.
You are subject to strange ideas and could find it difficult to
tell what is a delusion and what is not. You are likely to become
obsessed using psychic methods to determine reality and always are
looking for answers in spiritual realms.
You seem to have a powerful influence on everyone and others are
strongly attracted to you. You have a great need for attention or
flattery and may be a bit fanatic in love relationships. Your love
relationships are likely to be very deep and intense.

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 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.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group:
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.
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
What is New and Different in Your Age Group:
You are part of a 7 year group of people who are unusually
self-willed, proud, and egotistical. You are a group that defies
authority and insists on having its own way. Parents and school
teachers found that it was extremely difficult to discipline your
age group. Governments that are repressive to individual expression
and freedom meet a great deal of resistance from your age group, and
you tend to rise up against any form of tyranny and oppressive rule.
