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 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 prize personal independence and autonomy so much that you're apt to downplay your needs for closeness and caring. While you express indignation, anger, excitement, or enthusiasm rather freely, you hide your feelings of sadness or inadequacy. You may dismiss your own and others' feelings as insignificant and unimportant. Letting others know when you are hurting and need their support and help is hard for you because you feel that they will not respect you if you display this sort of vulnerability.
Striving to be (and often believing yourself to be) emotionally self-sufficient limits your ability to be truly intimate with others and to get the nurturing you need. You are also often rather insensitive to how your behavior affects other people.
As described in chapter 3, you also possess a solid sense of reality, and the ability to work and to discipline yourself in order to concretize your great hopes and dreams.

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.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special. You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in the background or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do not take orders from others very well. You must have something of your own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that you can develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do, you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your own personal stamp on it.
You also have a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and are deeply offended if someone treats you in a humiliating or dishonorable way. You will rarely confront the offender - you are too proud to do so - but you will lose your affection and respect for them. You dislike pettiness and hate to be snubbed or ignored.
You admire others who are strong individuals like yourself. When you befriend someone, you are tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. You are very giving and generous, but your gifts are never anonymous - you expect recognition and appreciation for them. You also expect the intense loyalty that you offer to your dear ones to be reciprocated. However, you often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, for you do not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If you are not in the leading role, you aspire to be and will compete with the person who is.
You have great heart and courage, and people often look to you for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. You always have your best face forward and rarely allow others to see you hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. You also have a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although you don't like others to realize just how important it is to you.
Your outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Your own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interests you more than anything else. You feel that if you do your best where you are, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that your core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, you have a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in your environment. You may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, you often don't get the full recognition you wish for.
You seem quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems you are trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being yourself. You tend to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
You appear sympathetic and approachable. Because you use your feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that you understand their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time you really want people to know how you feel, and their care and support are very important to you.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is a youthfulness about your manner and appearance regardless of your chronological age. You also always appear busy and active, and somewhat restless. You need mental stimulation from your environment, or you will rapidly get bored.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about you which draws people in need to you. Because you have a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, you're able to say or do just the right thing for them. You need to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
You have penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. You may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in your manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
You have a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. Very sensitive, your emotional state depends a lot on the influence of your immediate surroundings. For this reason others may see you as a somewhat unstable person.
You tend to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and may feel that you have little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by your surroundings. You are likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you are quite proud and you like to show off and impress other people with your accomplishments, appearance, etc., (as described in the previous chapter), you are really quite practical, solid, and down to earth also, (as will be discussed below). Because of this, you are likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
You are a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of your greatest assets. Once your course is set, you pursue it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway you from your purpose.
You have a very practical nature and want to see concrete, tangible results for your efforts, and you are not one for spinning wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of your "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being, and security, for you have a great love of the physical world and you want to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though you will work long and persistently, you also have a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and you want to enjoy what you have worked for. In fact, you can be enormously lazy at times and have a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. You also love the beauty of the natural world and probably prefer a serene country setting rather than an urban life style.
At heart your needs are simple and you are easy to please. You have a strong desire for security, stability, and peace, and will rarely make changes unless you are forced to do so. You are not very demanding emotionally, though you do crave lots of physical closeness and affection. Because of your faithfulness, emotional steadiness, and gentle strength, others often depend upon you for support. Though you hate upheaval and sudden changes, you usually maintain your poise and equanimity. You also have an innate sense of harmonizing with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time, and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or some creative project. You make an excellent mother or father, especially if you follow your instincts more often than "the experts".
You have three major faults: one is your bullheaded obstinacy. The second is your unwillingness to deviate from your safe, predictable routine. And the third is your tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, you lack the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, to open your mind to the new.
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 are direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. You often feel that you need to fight to get what you want and you tend to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. You are hasty, restless, impatient, and sometimes reckless.
If you are following your true nature, your life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial, full of insecurity and excitement. You cannot and will not be forced into some pre-set mold, and you find it difficult to conform. Your offbeat interests and tastes lead you into ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. You have a very creative, inventive streak.
You are apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything you do. Your extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, you don't always consciously understand why you feel as driven or intense about a given course of action as you do. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in your life. A significant death or loss in your life is apt to profoundly influence you and shape important decisions in your life, and you may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
You always seem to find the right words to verbalize your feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. You also have a keen sense of beauty and probably appreciate art, music or poetry.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
Outspoken and direct, you are always eager to express your ideas and opinions and don't 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 don't. You may be somewhat deficient in tact.
You have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. You are the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or the field of communications are also areas that interest you. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of yours.
You are a natural psychologist or counselor, interested in the inner motivations, feelings, personal life, and problems of others. You are a sympathetic listener and you also love to discuss (endlessly!) your own experiences and feelings. You tend to be very personal and subjective in your point of view. You have a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, dreams, desires, and other things that are personally meaningful to them. You could be an excellent interviewer, reporter, or biographer. Idle talk and gossip are your vices.
The study of the past - history, archeology, genealogy, etc. - is of great interest to you. Psychology, symbolism, mythology, and languages are also areas that you are drawn to.
You are open and receptive to subjects which defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy, metaphysics, etc., and you could teach these subjects to others. Your mind is imaginative and inspired and you have an aptitude for art and creative writing.
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.
You tend to be guided by wrong impressions of people and could easily deceive yourself about their character. On the other hand, you also may try to exploit other people's weakness and may even think of becoming involved in things that are a little shady.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Emotional outbursts are frequent with you due to your fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness. You express yourself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what your true feelings are. However, you dislike showing any personal weaknesses or needs for support, comfort, and nurturing. You are often impatient with yourself and with others. You abhor emotional dependency and dislike "complainers".
You inspire others to take positive action in their lives by your own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and are attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous, and independent. You are rather bossy, but you do not like to be with people that you can boss around too much. You enjoy a good fight sometimes. Relationships built upon mutual respect and a good deal of emotional freedom are ideal for you.
You become very cross if you do not have enough vigorous physical activity. You will feel your best if you "do battle" on the tennis or racquetball court (or engage in some other competitive sport) frequently.
You may have done extensive traveling in your early years, or in some way had a background which enables you to understand and identify with many different types of people or cultures.
You have a craving for things which are far away and foreign or for things you have never experienced before. You want to completely immerse yourself in the feelings and tastes of a new place, rather than simply have facts or an intellectual appreciation. Emotionally, too, you are restless and something of a wanderer.
You are assertive and confront difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. You cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and you can be rather brusque with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and DO something about it" might be your motto.
You tend to have strange quirks, idiosyncrasies, or domestic habits, and you may feel that you don't fit in with "normal" people. These could be endearing eccentricities, or truly outlandish tastes and behavior. Establishing a steady routine and rhythm in your life would be very beneficial but may not be easily achieved. Ideally you can create a unique lifestyle that affords you a lot of personal space, freedom, and flexibility to follow your own somewhat erratic rhythms -- while at the same time providing some order and consistency. There is a current of emotional discontent or restlessness within you also, which may be reflected in unstable personal relationships of the on again/off again variety. Whether you realize it consciously or not, you crave change and excitement.
Although you were portrayed above as being assertive and combative, you have a diametrically opposed tendency as well: The urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow your fiery reactions somewhat, or you may seesaw between the two. Your softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
The beauty and harmony of your surroundings has a very powerful effect on your emotions. You are very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kindhearted, and peace-loving, you will give or sacrifice much in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy".
Your intimate relationships and close personal relationships are often intense, highly-charged, and difficult, as they trigger deep emotional responses in you that have more to do with unsatisfied hungers and unmet childhood needs than with the present situation. You may feel like a voracious, bottomless pit when it comes to nurturing and emotional reassurance, and your neediness often drives others away. When you do let yourself feel close to another human being, painful long-buried feelings bubble to the surface as well perhaps grief at the losses you suffered, or anger at the neglect or hurt you endured. You may also reenact these situations in your present day relationships, in an unconscious effort to resolve and heal those old issues. You will do a lot of clearing and cleansing, if you can listen to what your feelings are telling you. If not, you will simply have a tumultuous, passionate, and stormy emotional life.
You are highly sensitive to everyone around you and are subject to strange moods or feelings. You have a tendency to exaggerate and could have unrealistic ambitions that may be hard to realize. It would be wise for you to keep your expectations a bit lower.
In love, you are more interested in a person's sense of humor and intelligence than in their physique. You like a partner who is mentally alive and who keeps you guessing a little bit, and you become restless and bored with someone who never asks questions, never changes or surprises you. Talking, sharing ideas, going places together, and learning new things together is very important to your happiness. You need lots of social stimulation, are something of a flirt, and like to have many friends of both sexes. A possessive, jealous partner is very stifling for you.
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, be more involved in your career than in your private life. You are a natural hostess or diplomat.
You have a great rapport with the opposite sex, and love, romance, and passion are absolutely vital to your well-being. It is rare for you to go very long without an intimate companion. The physical component of a relationship is very important to you. Artistic creations and projects are another way for you to channel your passion.
Your strong enthusiasm for life effects everyone around you. You have a sense of well-being, a harmonious sex-life and you are likely to enjoy healthy and affectionate love relationships. You also have a lot of creative ideas and could do well with some kind of craft projects.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are proud and ambitious, and you strive to excel, to stand out and be recognized for who and what you are. You have a very strong ego drive and like to be Number One. You find it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background, and you hate being wrong; you always insist that you are right!
You are forceful, strong, energetic, determined, and highly competitive. You play hard, you play to win, and you do not give up easily. In fact, you see life as a competitive sport or performance. You love admiration and applause, and you have a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. You tend to be very self-confident, even arrogant. Because of your belief in yourself, you are able to accomplish much, but if your confidence is ever undermined, you become self-conscious, defensive, and rather belligerent.
Asserting yourself and being direct and forceful about what you want is very often difficult for you. Though you may have a great deal of energy and drive, you lack confidence or simply the desire to put yourself and your interests first. Positively you can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for yourself.
You deny your own desires and needs too much, however, and you are likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage your finest efforts.
Intensely restless, dynamic, and energetic, you are always on the go. When you want something, you want it NOW, and you act decisively, impulsively, sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, you find it difficult to slow down, pace yourself, or relax. You are fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. You have a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not your strong point! You are often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when you are pursuing a desired goal. You may have an explosive temper when your will is blocked. You have a superabundance of energy and need much personal freedom to do things in your own style and at your own pace.
Eccentric, individualistic and very excitable, you can create a stir wherever you go. If you are not careful, you could often find yourself involved in quarrels or even violent assaults. To avoid trouble, it would be wise for you to learn to deal with others without anger.
The road to success, professional advancement, and fulfillment of your long-range goals is apt to be easier and smoother for you than for many. Partly this is due to getting a great deal of support -- financial, emotional, or both. Probably someone early in your life really believed in you and had high expectations for you. You contribute to your own success by having large goals, and by including, helping and enlisting the aid of friends and others in reaching those goals. A lack of selfishness or pettiness is a great boon to you. Whatever you do is apt to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
You make others feel accepted and comfortable. You have a knack for breaking down feelings of alienation and you make others feel included and a part of group activities. You have a loving, protective side that wants to take care of everyone. Creating a supportive atmosphere that is nourishing both to yourself and to others is one of your strengths.
Also, your home and heritage are important to you, and you maintain close connections to your past.
You have good fortune working with groups, organizations, and others who share your ideals. You go further if you unite your efforts with others, as in clubs, networks, or civic associations. Social improvement, or benefiting your community is very important to you.
Your manner is a bit phlegmatic and you could give the impression that everything is too much for you. You also have an innate inclination to be a little on the heavy side and seem to be content and happy leading a secluded and solitary mode of life.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You are very self-conscious and have a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing yourself freely, openly, and unself-consciously is not easy for you. You tend to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of your "performance" is an important task for you.
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.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against you, and you may have to withstand severe challenges. You probably will have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning you hard and cold hearted in your decisions because of it.
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.
Instinctively you are a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, you stand alone when you don't need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. You have a tendency to "reinvent the wheel"! - that is, to feel that you must be self reliant and that only you can come up with the answers you need. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach which at its worst can alienate you from others, or make you feel that "it is me versus the rest of the world".
Social skills and graces and what you call social "games" are not really natural to you. You need to learn how to share and join with others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in the way you think, process information, and communicate. In your interactions with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, try to bring out the qualities described above.
You tend to have a certain fear of crowds and may find it hard to integrate yourself into a group of people. Working with others is not easy for you, and you may frequently encounter some upsets or hostility.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
Your childhood or your relationship with your parents was unsettling or unstable in some way, so that you may never have felt that you had firm ground beneath your feet. One of your parents may have been unusual, eccentric, or an inconstant influence in your life. Abrupt changes in location or in family relationships may have made you feel insecure, but positively you were given more freedom and less pressure to conform to conventions, which enables you to be more of an individual and less tethered to restrictive ideas of how one "should" behave, feel, or live.
Your creative self-expression has a very imaginative quality, and you have a particular affinity for drama, theater, film, and other artistic mediums in which creative fantasy plays a major role.
In love and romance, also, you often have glamorous fantasies that have little to do with reality.
You have a probing, penetrating mind and are highly analytical and critical in your thinking. Work that involves research, investigating mysteries or hidden causes, or deep study and analysis suits you very well.
You are also a convincing speaker, bringing others around to your own point of view by the intensity of your convictions.
You are very lively and have the ability to enjoy every moment. Creative, inventive and colorful, you have a lot of ideas and would make a good public speaker with quick answers to any questions. You like change and are always ready to try something new.
You have a somewhat melancholic nature and probably lack self-confidence. Feeling inferior, you are likely to fear things that are not at all threatening to others. A sense of anxiety for no apparent reason may cause you to feel depressed at times.
You have a tendency to exaggerate and blow things out of proportion and always seem to think badly of others. Confused over the motives of others, you must take care not to be victimized while at the same time you have to avoid victimizing others.
You tend to seek the easy way out to the solution of your problems and often may be tempted to take a devious course of action. Your objectives are likely to be self supporting and you may act ruthlessly or underhandedly towards others at times.

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 12 year group of people who are deeply interested in personal relationships. Your age group has a deeply-rooted yearning to see people relating and communicating with each other effectively and harmoniously. There is little egotism and a willingness to hear the other person's side of the story and a readiness to compromise and arbitrate different points of view. In fact, the need for harmonious, peaceful relationships is so strong that there is a tendency to overlook real differences and to focus only on the similarities in an attempt to bring different parties into harmony with each other.
Interest in psychology and sociology is high in your age group. There is a tremendous heightening of awareness of social skills. Your age group will experiment with different marriage styles, family relationships, and even business relationships in an attempt to bring fair treatment and effective communication between people. Interest and appreciation for other cultures is also strong, and your age group will work hard to preserve and support the cultural heritage of all ethnic groups.
Your strong yearning for equitable and harmonious relationships is also reflected in major advancements in trade agreements, arms control, and international cooperation that are designed and implemented by your generation. These agreements and policies foster a much safer and more cooperative environment for all, although there is also a tendency for greedy individuals to take advantage of the conciliatory atmosphere and twist situations to their own ends.
In short, you are part of a generation of individuals who are deeply interested in other people; you are a humanistic and humanitarian group. You will struggle and experiment with personal relationships, and forge new models for how people can relate as friends, family members, and members of nations as well.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people that are extremely idealistic and farsighted in their dreams. Your age group is very liberal and expansive in outlook, and consequently churches become much more flexible and more eclectic in their approach during your life time. Religions that do not adapt to the broad-minded attitude of your age group simply are unable to attract very much interest and involvement from you.
A great deal of metaphysical musing and speculation is evident in your age group, and there is a very strong interest in all manner of psychic phenomena, UFO's, prophecy, etc. This interest will open many new doors and insights, but will also often lead to a great deal of fantasizing and speculation that is taken more seriously than it should be.
The entire generation to which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon you or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek the depths.
What is New and Different in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year group of people who break up all manner of taboos regarding death, sex, and any other personal, private, or difficult topics. Your age group is less modest about sex than other age groups and promiscuity is not uncommon. You love emotional intensity, and there are many extremists and fanatics in your age group.
