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.
Your life is apt to be full of emotional extremes, turbulence, joy and sorrow, arising out of your own passionate nature and unpredictability. You are impulsive and temperamental. For you, everything is intensely personal and colored by emotion. You may have difficulty viewing a situation from a detached, impartial or rational perspective, and you have little inclination to structure and order your life. However, developing self-discipline, organization, and focus is essential. Otherwise you will be prone to tremendous moodiness, alternating between high inspiration and despondency.
At times you feel much internal pressure, for you have two strong impulses which can be in conflict with one another. The desire for independence and freedom, the need for self expression and ego recognition, and an urge to leave the past behind in order to propel yourself into new experiences may be at odds with other, equally strong needs: attachments to people and to the familiar, a compelling urge for emotional closeness and union, and a desire for security. Balancing these two drives is a significant challenge for you.
Even though your life is less even and perhaps less stable than others', most likely you would not change it, for you are very alive, sensitive, and responsive to the ever-changing, dynamic quality of life.
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.
You meet life head on and throw yourself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. You are direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all your dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, you project a confident and sometimes arrogant appearance to others. You often lack tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. You are self-reliant and don't depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. You like to be original and do not mind going it alone. You may feel that you do not fit into groups very well, and that you do not naturally blend in and cooperate with others very easily. You like to be either a leader or a loner.
You are a doer and thrive on freedom, challenge, and activity. You tend to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in your outlook, which enables you to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired with an idea, you feel such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that you will often charge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not your forte. However, you never accept defeat and will have brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To you it is far better to make mistakes than it is to play it safe and never try.
You are scornful of what you see as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. You are not a follower. Others see you as a strong individual, and perhaps brash and brazen as well. You present a strong front to the world and generally do not allow others to see your vulnerable or insecure side.
You may seem to others to be very gentle, malleable, and easily taken in. As a result, people can take advantage of you, especially through your pity or sympathy. If you seem to be continually disappointed by or deceived by others, try to see how your own naiveté may be contributing to these situations.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about you that may have little to do with your physical features. It's an energy, a subtle sexuality, that you emanate. Also, you tend to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Your instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you strive for honesty and candor, as described in the previous chapter, you are really very nonaggressive and kind, as discussed below. You often feel a great chasm between your idealism and the harsh realities that often require confrontation and sometimes conflict. However, you have a gift for being able to stand up by yourself with integrity, but without malice or vindictiveness. Your strength combined with your compassion can make you a leader who is deeply sensitive to the needs of others. Also, your pioneering spirit may spur you to introduce new styles or concepts in the arts, music, or other imaginative area.
At heart you are very gentle, impressionable, and receptive -a dreamer. The world of your imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to you as anything in the outer world, though you may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting your inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, you have a rich inner life, though you may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. You usually keep to yourself.
You have great sensitivity and empathy with others, and you often sense things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. You are tolerant, forgiving, and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. You have deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and often feel others' pain as if it were your own. You sympathize with the needy, the disadvantaged, the misfits of society. You are capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker, or minister. However, you tend to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of your kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon you. You have little sense of boundaries, of limits, of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not your strong points.
You are a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and you try to avoid open conflict. You will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than directly confronting them, and you tend to lack the positive fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. You are fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. You do things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Your gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for you have a great sensitivity, inspiration, and limitless imagination. You respond very strongly to beauty and to love.
Your faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than taking strong, definite action to change your life for the better. You also tend to become so detached from your immediate environment that you live in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around you more than it bothers you.
You tend to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where your efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting yourself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for you.
You have to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill your personal destiny. However, you do have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from your father or other significant men in your life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of you and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of your greatest handicaps, and at times you may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of your own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in your life. You need to learn to follow your own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what your critics or the authorities say.
Although you take yourself and your responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of you that rebels against rules and restrictions and answering to outside authority. You can feel torn between conforming or fulfilling your obligations, and breaking free of them. Your wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to you, and you do not allow tradition, convention, or other people's expectations to dictate how you are going to live your life. You crave freedom, adventure, excitement, and discovery, and are not afraid of change. You possess inventive and creative genius.
You probably have great intellectual ability and curiosity. You never seem to run out of ideas and always welcome the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But you also have the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.

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.
You have a good understanding of group trends, politics, mass movements, and community affairs. Sharing ideas with groups of people is something you do well and are likely to be involved with. You collaborate well in group efforts and are likely to be part of a successful team or large organization.
You have very little interest in or facility for technical, mechanical things. The human personal side of life, people, psychology, the inner side of life is your forte. You understand children and enjoy conversing, counseling, listening, and learning about them. You also need a variety of social and intellectual experiences on a regular basis, and will be restless, nervous, and irritable if you can not get out and about. You often need to be mobile, to go for a walk or a drive, to settle yourself and reestablish your emotional equilibrium. You tend to dwell on the past, to ponder its significance, and to long for it at times. Nostalgia and sentimentality color your thinking quite a bit.
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 have big plans and pursue your ideas with great zeal. You also have the power to influence people and sway them to your point of view. You may accomplish this through public speaking or writing, and could do well in publicity or advertising.
Your thoughts tend to go along artistic lines and you may very well pursue some kind of art as a hobby. In love, you have a sympathetic understanding of your partner's desire for affection and seem to be able to read their wishes from their eyes.
You are self-assured and confident and have the necessary energy to carry out your objectives. You make your plans with sufficient forethought and always keep in mind to proceed according to the currently prevailing regulations.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Warm, loving, and generous in your affections, you inspire tremendous devotion and loyalty in your loved ones. This is good, since you would never settle for anything less! You want to be adored and worshipped like the king or queen that you feel you are, and it is difficult for anyone to resist the warmth and attention you lavish on those you care about. You have a great deal of pride and need to be recognized and appreciated. The way to really hurt your feelings is to ignore you. You are genuine, sincere, and have a strong sense of personal integrity. You hate emotional games and dishonesty.
You are emotionally expressive and often dramatize your feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. You can not hide your instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and you don't make any pretenses about your personal sympathies or antipathies.
You have a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets you into trouble, as you take risks on impulse or whim.
You are prone to be overly indulgent, overly permissive, overly generous, and disinclined to budget or diet or set reasonable limits for yourself or others. Subconsciously you feel entitled to bounty, and see no reason to be deprived. At your worst you can be greedy but insatiable, and addicted to "the good life". However, if other factors in your chart indicate a capacity for discipline and prudence, there is a positive side to your emotional indulgence -- you tend to be quite charitable and tolerant, freely giving and willing to embrace others despite their shortcomings.
Your emotions are very intense, but often hidden. Like a volcano, one minute you seem quite peaceful and the next you are exploding with great force and unexpected fury. The intensity of your reactions often surprises even you. You have tremendous zeal and tend to be an emotional fanatic about things you care about. Your feelings and desires can be so compelling that you do things against your better judgment and reason. You can also be very manipulative, in a subtle way. Your personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate, and often stormy and painful as well.
You have a cheerful temperament and a harmonious disposition. Because of your easy personality, you get along easily with others. Home and family are precious to you and your home is likely to be large and lavish.
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.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, you give very selflessly and devotedly to those you love and often allow others to become overly dependent upon you. More compassionate than passionate, you may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and you want to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
You are drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls -poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone you feel you can have a deep spiritual relationship with. You idealize love and have a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love can be.
You often hide your affection, or find your feelings difficult to express or get across to the person you love. Being openly affectionate and trusting often doesn't seem safe to you. You may feel your love won't be appreciated or reciprocated. You may get involved in secret love affairs or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to you. Love and sacrifice often seem to go hand in hand for you - having to give something up to be with the one you love, or having to relinquish some person or some aspect of an important love relationship.
You are extremely amorous and it is difficult for you to go without a romantic involvement for very long. When you are attracted to someone, you pursue them very ardently and sometimes come on too strong. Doing creative work or artistic work can also satisfy the very strong desire for love and beauty that you feel.
You have an affectionate nature and are in harmony with your environment. Charming and friendly, you are on good terms with most of the people in your sphere. Your friends and associates mean a lot to you and you relate to them in a positive and loving way.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are noncombative, noncompetitive, and something of a pacifist. You will give something up rather than fight for it. You may seem weak-willed or ineffectual, for you do not have a strong ego drive for personal achievement and material advantage, or for winning at the expense of someone else. Being first, being best, being on top doesn't mean much to you, and you can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that you believe in. You are gentle and impressionable and are motivated by less mundane and less tangible things than most other people. You may have difficulty formulating clear, definite goals for yourself and making your way in the world. You have many dreams, high ideals, and a strong mystical or religious impulse. You also have a creative imagination and can successfully apply yourself to art or music. You have a sensitive physique and need to maintain good regular health habits in order build strength and stamina.
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.
You have a positive, "can-do" attitude and tackle life's challenges with relish. You are self-confident and have a strong will to succeed, to see how much you can do and how far you can go. No matter what you accomplish, you do not rest on your laurels. You want to keep on going, to do even bigger things. You are forward-looking, enterprising, and enthusiastic about new projects. You are not happy in situations that do not offer you challenges and the potential for growth and expansion in the future - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may be in other respects. You enjoy competition, but you compete mostly with yourself, to see how much of your vision and potential you can really achieve. You make a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. You usually enjoy good health and high vitality.
You are quite passionate, love children, and are inclined to wish for a large family. In fact, you are likely to become completely bound up in your marriage and family life.
In order to achieve your ambitions in life you may well feel that you must make a significant break from your personal past, especially the influences of your childhood environment, your family, or familial traditions. You're apt to be the black sheep, or the one who left home and never really returned.
What you want to do in life may seem "off the wall" or "way out in left field" to some people.
Your disposition could seem a bit strange to others and you have a tendency to lose yourself in illusions. You have a very dreamy nature and are inclined to fantasize about erotic and sexual situations.
You seem to lack the drive needed to deal with situations and depend a lot on your subconscious insights. Your energy tends to be a bit low and feelings of hopelessness and inferiority may plague you quite often.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your ability to empathize and identify with others makes you unwilling to take advantage of or hurt anyone. You care about the underdog. You may also be unusually impressionable or have highly developed psychic sensitivity.
You are drawn to social work, the ministry, giving your time and energy to charitable organizations, or to serving and helping the disadvantaged in some way. Your generosity and unselfishness will bring you and others much good.
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.
You have abundant powers of imagination and fantasy and could do well in some artistic endeavor, if you are so inclined. You also are intuitively aware of what others are feeling, giving you a very sympathetic and compassionate attitude.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You take your personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. You may feel that relationships in general require more of you than they are worth, and you enter into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. You also fear entrapment in close relationships.
You take both your work and your health very seriously, but you may demand so much of yourself at work that you compromise your health. You can become a workaholic, not so much because you have lofty ambitions, but because you never feel like you've done enough. You are overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that you may not enjoy it at all.
You can also get overly involved in self-improvement or your health, and you tend to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
You become tense and upset rather easily. You become irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. Very serious about bringing your inspirations into concrete form, you are inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in order to accomplish your goals. Your occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
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.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance your deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, you are apt to try to rigorously analyze and to focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and you can easily become problem-oriented, losing sight of the big picture and of what is working.
Learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. Let your feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use your imagination and let your dreams emerge!
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is deep within yourself, as you face your own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of yourself or your life that you keep hidden from public view.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service, ministering to people in need.
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 wholeness.
Give and receive affection, love, and pleasure (especially using the qualities described previously). Learn to respond to, appreciate, and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. Be aware of aesthetics and do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Enjoy life, nurture friendships, and cultivate your ability to love and to receive love.
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 don't 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 to grow.
Develop faith and confidence both in yourself and in a higher power which can guide, nourish, and help you. Expand your willingness to dream and envision better things in life. Study religion, philosophy, and other subjects that enable you to see a larger, more inclusive view of yourself and the world.
Be generous with your time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life, and this in turn will benefit you.
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.
Not at all selfish, you have the ability to share the joy you feel with other people. You seem to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
You are able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see you as a welcome comrade. You like to work hand in hand with everyone and have an excellent sense of team-work.
You seem to have an innate sense of cosmic awareness and are likely to have strong psychical or metaphysical talents. You are inclined to join some parapsychology groups where you may share your unusual experiences with other people.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You grasp new concepts quickly and are interested in new technologies, discoveries, and innovations. Unconventional ideas and creative, original approaches to problems are very attractive to you also. You are easily bored and may have trouble concentrating on one idea or task at a time. You have an inventive mind.
You have a sensitive physique and may have allergic responses and sensitivities to foods, medicines, or anything you take in from the environment. Emotional stress and confusion seem to affect you physically, even more quickly than they affect other people.
You have very strong creative forces and whatever you do, you want to do to the fullest. In love and romance, you get totally, passionately, even obsessively involved. In other forms of creative release and self-expression, also, you are very driven and you have a deep need to prove yourself. Your desire for personal recognition is compelling, and if you do not achieve creative success, you may try to force your children to fulfill your dreams for you.
You tend to fantasize about romantic situations and have a strong longing for love. You may look for partners who put you into a magical world of beautiful illusions and could end in sudden disappointment when you find out that your loved one is not what you fantasized.
A frequent change in your energy level could bring about sudden feelings of fatigue. You may not plan your objectives very carefully and feel disillusioned when you suddenly realize that you miscalculated the results and your efforts are for naught.
You are inclined to be a bit self-willed and could find it difficult to become a united member of your community. At the same time you have a tendency to become upset over the anti-social behavior of others.
You tend to rebel against the circumstances in your life and may apply an extraordinary effort toward overcoming difficulties. Provocative behavior from others often could cause you to take a strong stand, but you should beware of exposing yourself to brutal or violent actions.

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 the depths.
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.
