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

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
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
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
You are an "up" person, positive-minded and lively, and you
generally have an invigorating, inspiring, energizing effect
upon other people. Boredom or getting stuck in the rut of old
habits is not a problem for you, as you have numerous interests
and the energy to pursue many of them. However, overextending
yourself, pouring your energies out without taking time to
replenish yourself, scattering your forces or moving on to new
things before you finish something are definite tendencies. You
can burn yourself out by being involved in too many activities.
You seem impelled to be always in motion, as if you were afraid
you would miss something interesting "out there". Paying
attention to your body's needs for rest, attending to your own
inner world and to your feelings and giving sufficient attention
to your immediate family and their needs is something you need
to learn to do more of. It would benefit you to simply stop from
time to time and just be for awhile.
You are very idealistic and are frequently disappointed that
we do not live in a perfect world, but it is through the vision
and energy of people like yourself that new ideas are introduced
and positive changes made. Your gifts are your ability to
entertain and play with creative ideas and possibilities, to
seek new solutions to problems, and to venture gladly into new
territory (literally or figuratively).
You need to cultivate the quality of receptivity; the
ability to listen and quietly absorb what another is saying, for
instance, instead of focusing on what you have to say. Learning
to wait and to trust rather having to make something happen or
trying to bend the world to your will is another aspect of
One of your primary challenges involves developing a stable
sense of security, solidness, and a steady rhythm in your life.
Cultivating self-discipline, patience and endurance, and
learning to accept realistic limitations will enable you to be
more productive and to actualize some of the ideas and creative
impulses you have. You are not always interested in practical
applications, the actual work involved in realizing a desire or
compromises for the sake of practicalities.
You feel out of place in the world at times, restless,
discontent, unable to find your niche, dissatisfied with mundane
reality. Positively this may spark your exploration of the
creative, imaginative, or spiritual side of life. However, you
tend to resist growing up and learning how to effectively deal
with adult responsibility. You also tend to be either bound up
with the past or projecting into the future, ignoring the
present moment - what actually is. To become more present and
grounded, you may find the following helpful: getting massages
on a regular basis, doing gentle regular, rhythmic exercise like
walking or yoga, and eating substantial, heavy foods.

Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
The following is a description of your basic stance towards
life, the way others see you, the way you come across, the face
you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will read about the "The
Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes the kind of
person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read
this chapter and the next one and compare them - there may be
significant differences between them, in which case "the inner
you" may not shine through and others are in for some surprises
when they get to know you at a more than superficial level. This
chapter describes the costume you wear, your role in life, while
Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.
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've 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 bounce back quickly from disappointment
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 and
responsibilities 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 promiser,
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 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 looking forward.
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.
You have a big heart, are generous with your affections, and
you have a strong desire to take care of everyone around you. It
is easy for you to establish personal contacts and relationships
because of your ability to fully understand others.
You are likely to go your own way in life and have a
tendency to seclude yourself from others. Always preoccupied
with your own thoughts and ideas, you give other people the
impression that you don't want to be bothered with their

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Not only are you restless and adventurous (as mentioned in
the previous chapter), you have a rebellious, unconventional
streak also, and you really want to have a significant impact on
the world. You are a very active person and likely to be
involved in community affairs as well as successful in your
business or career.
You are a freedom-loving, strong-willed, and
independent-minded individual, and you insist upon living your
own life as you see fit, even if that means ignoring convention
and tradition. In personal relationships you cannot be owned or
possessed, and while you are willing to share yourself with
another, you do not always adjust easily to the emotional give
and take of a close relationship. Though intellectually open,
you can be enormously stubborn, opinionated, and inflexible on a
one-to-one level. You have strong convictions and feelings about
fairness and equality, and you try to live by your ideals, but
your ideals about how people SHOULD treat one another don't
always take into account human weaknesses, differences, and
needs. You probably dislike sentimentality and traditional
gender roles and "games".
You are fair, intelligent, objective, rational and often let
your head rule rather than your heart. You seem rather
self-sufficient and detached emotionally because you are capable
of putting aside your personal feelings and viewing things
dispassionately. But once you make up your mind on an issue, you
are difficult to sway and can be rather dogmatic.
You think in broad terms and are concerned with the world
beyond your own personal sphere - your town, nation, or even
planet. You are likely to become involved in community affairs,
social organizations, and groups of all kinds, or to have a keen
interest in such. You enjoy being part of a group endeavor and
often find yourself organizing, managing, or supervising group
Forward-looking and progressive, you harbor great hopes for
the future. You stay current and up to date, and respond to
contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style
and in terms of ideas. When young you were very influenced by
your peers and by group pressures and by all the "latest
crazes". You have an experimental mind and are attracted by the
Your strong points include your concern for human welfare
and social betterment, your sense of fairness and democratic
spirit, and your vision. Your faults are your stubbornness and
inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive
when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Ownership gives you a sense of security, and you have a
strong attachment to your possessions. You also have a natural
instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and
appraising the value of merchandise.
You are loving and well-loved by others, and have a strong
need for kindness, friendship, and affection. Your artistic and
creative powers are also well developed and you do everything in
a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very
important to you. Your personal appearance and attractiveness
are also very important to you.
While you deeply appreciate beauty and have a great desire
for love, you are in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in your
affections. You can be very frugal and sparing with both money
Feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions, and self-doubt
often plague you. You have a cautious, careful, realistic
attitude toward life and are highly responsible and disciplined
with regard to your obligations and duties. You tend to work and
struggle more than you need to, and to take yourself too

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
You are a progressive thinker, open and receptive to new
technologies and breakthroughs in science, and the latest
discoveries in any field. You have high expectations and a deep
belief that mankind's problems can be solved through the use of
our creative intelligence and inventive mind. You have no
patience for those whose conservative, unimaginative outlook
limits their capacity to find solutions and envision a better
future. You also like to keep abreast of current developments in
world affairs, for you instinctively know that what happens in
one part of the world affects everyone. You have a strong
humanitarian impulse. Practically speaking, you have an aptitude
for organization and enjoy being involved in cooperative
endeavors or businesses that are contemporary and innovative.
Your mental skills and intelligence are directed toward
practical matters, and you are interested in the tangible
effects of any abstract idea or concept. You are very interested
in finance, economics, and moneymaking strategies.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in
discussions, you tend to turn any conversation into a debate,
and sometimes a verbal war. You could be a spokesman for a
righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp
analyst or critic. You are a convincing speaker, but are not
especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. You
have a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
You have an ongoing interest in learning and expanding your
mental horizons. You enjoy traveling, philosophical discussions,
and exchanging ideas with those of different experiences and
viewpoints. Broad-minded and fair, you are well-suited to law,
consulting, diplomatic relations, and also business. You learn
quickly, and can pick up on a new idea or concept with relative
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 overstimulating, frenetic places in order
to stay balanced.
You have very strong opinions and may be seen as fanatical,
extreme, dogmatic, or one-sided in your views. Forcing your
"truth" onto other people or playing intellectual power games
with them, seeking to manipulate their thinking along certain
lines, can lead to much conflict and opposition in your life.
You may also be keenly aware of the ways the media, popular
artists, and advertising manipulates and shapes our thoughts,
for you see through hypocrisy, sham, and surface appearances
quite readily. You have an intense way of communicating, and you
may threaten others unintentionally.

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 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 get a lot of emotional fulfillment through your
involvement in groups, clubs, organizations, community
activities, or a network of close friends who support and care
for you. You make friends your family, and feel a close kinship
with people who share some ideals or beliefs that you hold dear.
You need people outside of your physical family to relate to and
You are easily influenced by your environment and tend to
get depressed when things don't go the way you expected.
Relationships are not easy for you; you could be a recluse,
avoiding most contact with others.
You relate to others on an emotional level, because you feel
your emotions so strongly yourself. You are sensitive to others'
needs and have the ability to create a cozy atmosphere when you
are together with another person.
You are open and unconventional in your attitude towards
love, romance, and sex. You enjoy socializing, bringing people
together, and having many friends of both sexes. You value
friendship very highly and are, in fact, more comfortable being
a friend than a lover. You desire an intellectual rapport or
spiritual bond with your love partner, but deep intimacy and
emotional bonding do not come easily to you. The role of
"husband" or "wife" in the traditional sense doesn't appeal to
you, and you abhor jealousy and possessiveness since you feel
that no person truly "belongs" to another. You appreciate a love
partner who will allow you plenty of freedom and is not very
For you, caring and affection must be expressed tangibly,
and you love giving and receiving gifts. You value luxury,
comfort, and elegance very highly and appreciate beautiful
things. You can be self-indulgent and extravagant. Being overly
possessive of people you love and of your belongings is
something you need to beware of.
You are serious and find it difficult to enjoy yourself in a
lighthearted, open and playful way with others. You rarely do
something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and
parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in your early
life, you are very cautious about becoming close to people and
sharing your feelings. Though you crave love and affection,
intimacy is difficult for you. You may become romantically
involved with people who do not value you or treat you well. You
need to learn to love and value yourself before you will find
happiness in love.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are extremely strong-willed and you pursue your goals
and desires with passionate dedication and determination. You
are capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline,
and you are very difficult to influence or sway once your mind
is made up. When you want something, you can be very one-sided
and almost obsessed with it. You are very instinctive and do not
always consciously know why you feel as strongly and deeply as
You also tend to be secretive and unwilling to reveal your
aims and intentions, and the intensity of your will and desire
may not be apparent to others at first. However, you are very
forceful in a quiet and subtle way. You often manipulate or
force your will upon other people, without being overtly
aggressive. You are not interested in confrontation but are a
formidable foe if you meet opposition or aggression from
another. You are courageous and have a rather primitive, raw
side as well.
You are a team player and work well in collaboration with
others who share your goals, ideals, and intentions. You can
coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a
Team sports are also a lot of fun for you, and you could be
a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
You are dynamic, decisive, and somewhat impulsive. You
respond quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and you enjoy
vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a
good sense of rhythm and timing. You have an abundance of energy
and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change
-you hate stagnation. You are individualistic and make a good
leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
You have a powerful will and when you want something, you
pursue it passionately and relentlessly until you achieve it.
You may be so driven by your desire that you lose all
objectivity. You often become compulsive, even obsessed, with
doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how
hard you must work for it. Your forcefulness may be veiled or
subtle, for often you do not reveal your real aims and
intentions to others until they cross you. Intense power
struggles and relationships with a strong
dominance/submissiveness theme are likely. You have enormous
energy reserves, and are capable of extraordinary effort and
great achievement if you use your energies for constructive
You strive to be in the public eye and may live by the motto
"work brings distinction". You have a positive attitude towards
your family and your career and are able to work independently
as well as with your colleagues in successful team-work.
Your drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or
eccentric to the more conservative people you know. There may
well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no
insurance benefits) in the work you do. You are suited for
freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change,
innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Expect
the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of your
life. You may change course often, and try many different
Fluidity of speech and thought, and using intellectual
gifts or communicative skills to achieve your ambitions in life
are featured. Convincing, selling, persuading, reasoning,
bringing ideas into public awareness are also part of your
You may seem to have a magically easy road to success and
public recognition. Doors open for you and opportunities abound.
You may have more offers than you can follow up on. Mostly this
is due to a positive and generous attitude on your part. You
ambitions in life may have a spiritual component -- based on a
concern for social betterment or humanitarian ideals.
You are optimistic, have a lot of ideas, and are very fond
of talking. Always ready to expand your mind, you have a zeal
for learning new subjects. You may be interested in scientific
fields and are likely to be very successful in your vocation.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
You have the ability to see connections between seemingly
unrelated ideas or worlds, and to bring them together. You excel
in any field requiring clear intellect, and verbal and
communication skills. You have an insatiable curiosity and may
read or watch television constantly in order to satisfy your
need for mental stimulation. Your mind never stops.
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.
Although your vitality may be a bit low, you always have an
optimistic outlook and the ability to enjoy the pleasant things
in life. In spite of your somewhat weak constitution, you find a
way to achieve success with little physical exertion.
You are very adaptable, have a well developed social sense,
and love social activity and entertainment. Your relationship to
other people is likely to be harmonious and your upbringing
probably was geared toward early maturity and shaping of your
You are very receptive to beauty and art and have a need to
live a comfortable life. You may find great pleasure in
illusions and could deem yourself happy in love whether it is
real or not. You tend to leave others in doubt about your real

yourself. Also very fond of doing things for others, you may
sacrifice your own wishes for them, and feel an inner joy
knowing that you were able to be of help to someone.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You both yearn for, and fear, being emotionally vulnerable
with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting
others and letting yourself be known in a deep way doesn't come
easily to you, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. You
are very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive.
Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to
be completely open, 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're 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 doesn't recognize your efforts.
You are inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in
by others. You have to guard against being deceived or used by
others, though your intentions may be good. Don't let your
desire to have things cloud your ability to see what is really
Not very adaptable, you tend to be rebellious and fight hard
against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents,
so try to take care. You may have to work extremely hard and may
have a lot of responsibilities that you cannot let go.
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.
You have a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and
caring, which is a gift that you are apt to overdo at times. For
balance, you need to develop mature self-discipline,
self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, you have a strong instinct to retreat
back into the nest, to be a child again, or to become
overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of.
Also, you may encourage others to depend upon you emotionally
(and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. You need to learn how to
set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues
is in your immediate, direct encounters with others. There is a
dynamic balance (or conflict) within you between acting
spontaneously and being true to yourself versus modifying
yourself or your behavior to suit others. You seesaw between
being inordinately concerned with self to being overly
conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or
opinions about you. Learning to act authentically and
forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is your task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or
which you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive
antiauthoritarian attitude, seeking constant (and often
purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable
people, and seeking individual freedom at any cost.
You are very obliging in your interaction with other people
and can easily relate to them. You are likely to have many
friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and
viewpoints as you do.

Chapter 9: Originality and Imagination
Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You need a lot of freedom in your close one-to-one
relationships and you may experiment with nontraditional forms
of relationships. You rebel against conventions and restrictions
when it comes to marriage or personal relationships, and you're
likely to choose a highly unusual, eccentric, or unconventional
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 have a strong desire to establish yourself and to be
accepted by the world around you. However, if others choose not
to accept and follow you, you are likely to go on your way doing
your own thing anyway.
You have an eye for beauty and tend to be attracted quickly
to beautiful and pleasant people. You act spontaneously and
prefer love contacts without any strings attached. Freedom is
very important to you, and you are likely to have a number of
You have the ability to quickly exploit every situation and
are able to turn circumstances around in your favor. You

great success, but should beware of succeeding at someone else's
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.

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 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
You are part of a 20 year period that is often referred to
as the "ME" generation, a generation that has a very proud and
self-reliant attitude. You are a generation that is very
concerned with self-development and personal integrity. Women's
rights and minority rights are issues that your generation has
fostered and they reflect your concern with individual respect,
integrity, and honor. Your age group has a deeply felt sense
that each person has an equal right and opportunity to fully
develop his or her inner potential.
However, your group also finds it difficult to be part of a
team and a strong egotism makes group efforts difficult; you
tend to see the individual as more important than the group. You
also defy authority and often feel that no one has the right to
tell you what to do. The strong movement to refuse drafting into
the military is one example of your age group's strong sense of
individual rights and freedom.
Your age group has popularized the idea of self-development,
and has contributed a great deal to the development of
individual potential as well as human rights. However, there is
also a tendency to be rather self-centered; others may wonder
how you can spend so much time developing yourselves and have so
little time to contribute to your families!
The interest in personal development also sometimes
manifests as a fascination with particular individuals and a
great deal of hero worship. Every generation, of course, has
lots of idols, but your generation is particularly prone to
needing a specific individual to represent and embody an idea or
feeling, and to serve as a focal point of interest. Perhaps the
most extreme example of this is the concept of the guru that was
popularized by your age group.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people who have a very
idealistic sense of brotherhood and universal cooperation,
which, among other things, fostered the peace and freedom
movement. Your age group is also interested in the spiritual
philosophy and ideals of other cultures, and is not at all
dogmatic in its approach to religion. You incorporate the
approaches of other religions. Your age group tends to have an
eclectic approach to religion, utilizing elements from many
religious perspectives (e.g. Eastern and Western), and finds it
difficult to follow traditionally defined religious practices.
A gullibility and an unwillingness to be decisive and
judgmental inclines your age group to be easily deceived, and
consequently many of the well-intended ideals and goals are
frustrated by a lack of clear purpose and direction.
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
What is New and Different in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year group of people who have a strong
need to feel unrestrained by family ties and personal heritage.
Your age group tends to find personal relationships very
restrictive, and also tends to feel alienated and distant from
family ties and concerns. Forming long-term personal
relationships is difficult for your age group, and divorce rates
are high in your group. However, you are an emotional and
sensitive group also, and this instability is painful at times.
Finding personal freedom and closeness with others at the same
time is a big challenge for you.
