Natal Chart Interpretation of David Miliband

    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 gift lies in your ability to perceive, understand, and communicate about matters of feeling, of heart and soul. You are thus well suited to any field that involves working with people as a counselor or teacher, and even if you are not so trained, others seek you out as an advisor, for you are able to clarify and sensitively discuss their personal concerns and problems. Relationship is really a primary importance to you and is the arena in which your richest and most fulfilling experiences lie. You, even more than most people, require friends and intimates to share your thoughts and your life with.

    You also have an active and creative mind and are apt to spend much time reading, thinking or daydreaming, and/or writing (stories, music, lyrics, diaries, letters, etc.). Film or any media combining words with images and emotions also fascinates you.

    At times your mind and intellect may seem to be at odds with your instinctive, emotional, feeling side, and it is your task to bring them together. You may spend a lot of time cogitating and mulling over your experiences and feelings, trying to understand and make sense of them.

    You are quite sensitive (psychologically and physically) and may avoid direct, active participation in 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 are a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and ready to see the other side of an issue. Even if you strongly disagree with someone, you will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. You often avoid taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. You have a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and express a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. You very much want to be liked and because of your need for approval and acceptance, you are easily influenced by others' opinions, especially when young. You so much want to please that often you will suppress your own intense or unpleasant feelings in order not to offend others. Sometimes your politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.

    Your need to create harmony extends to your physical environment and personal appearance as well. You appreciate beauty and have a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. You do everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From your home furnishings to your choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.

    You also feel that relationships are an art, one that especially interests you and one that you are usually quite skilled at, for you possess tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to you and finding the right person to share your life with is extremely important. Being part of a close couple seems natural to you - you are not an independent loner. Having a partner increases your self-confidence. You do have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on your partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being yourself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for you.

    Others see you as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to you, this is the sort of face you show to the world. You possess personal charm and an understated, noncombative manner. Your motto could be "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" for you usually take a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.

    Assertiveness and confrontation is very much part of your way of approaching life. Waiting for someone else to make the first move is not your style. Though you value harmony and pleasantness, you often feel that others are trying to control you or are not trying to cooperate with you. Others feel that you demand too much from them. Surprisingly, you are often perceived by others as a trouble maker or instigator, even when your intention is to help and assist them.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation

    Although you may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced, and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), you are actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, you are much more subjective and biased in your attitudes than your fair-minded, reasonable appearance would imply.

    You have powerful emotional attachments to the past, your family, your childhood, those places you associate with safety and security and your beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong are very important to you. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, you tend to cling to whatever is dear to you, be it person, familiar place, or cherished possession.

    You are sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. You like to be needed, to care for others, and you often worry about the people you love. You have a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and you center much of your life around your home. You are more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration, and tenderness impress you more than any sort of honor the world can bestow.

    You are primarily emotional and your views are often dominated by your feelings and by your own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic, or abstract principles. It is difficult for you to judge situations in a fair, objective manner for your personal sympathies and loyalties usually enter in. You take things very personally, and sometimes build a wall around yourself to protect yourself from pain and rejection. You feel rather shy and vulnerable at heart. You also tend to be moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs. You need to have a place and time in your life to withdraw, introspect, dream, and replenish yourself; otherwise you become cranky and unhappy with those around you.

    You function in an instinctive, nonrational manner and like to immerse yourself in creative activities where you can express your feelings, imagination, and instincts. You often love to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. You also have a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.

    Your compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are your strong points. Your faults include an inability to release the past and go forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when you meet hardships in life.

     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.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities

    You are a person of strong opinions and you express your views energetically and often dramatically. You are an entertaining speaker and will embellish or exaggerate in order to get your point across. You have an aptitude for storytelling and performing. Even if your arena is only the classroom or dining room table, you put on a good show. You have an abundance of creative ideas and do not enjoy a job in which you have no creative input or voice in decision-making. You could be a good politician, spokesperson, group leader, director, or coach.

     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 appreciate aesthetics and have a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. You could develop considerable technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. You could also sell objects of beauty - artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.

    You have the ability to please and harmonize well with others and tend to ameliorate relationships between people. Your sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are of great benefit to you in any work with people on a one-to-one level.

     You are mentally restless, intellectually thirsty, and immensely curious. You may study and travel widely in order to satisfy these urges and you're even happier if you share your journeys with companions. Your gifts lie in your capacity for learning about the beliefs of a broad spectrum of people, making long-distance connections, opening up channels of communication and understanding, bringing people together from foreign lands, promoting social and cultural exchange.

    Although broad-minded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), your mind is clear and practical as well. Your wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times you may seesaw between your optimism and sense of larger possibilities, and your skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.

     You have a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, you tend toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies you may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up your mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color your thinking too much.

    Although your thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times you can be quite the opposite. Periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract, or imponderable subjects are also likely, as discussed below.

    Your mind is highly imaginative and creative and you possess dramatic, artistic, or musical abilities. As a child, you enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing, pretending, and probably lived in "your own little world" a good deal. You perceive things which are not obvious to other people and you have an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, you must learn to discriminate between a true psychic perception and your imagination. Learning to discipline and focus your mind is necessary if you wish to use all of your creative potential. Otherwise, you could be simply a dreamer.

    Communication with others is difficult for you because you often find words frustrating and inadequate to express your experiences and perceptions. Also, you may purposefully mystify or deceive others.

    You know what you want to accomplish and have a tendency to strive toward a superior intellect. You are prudent and a convincing speaker with the ability to influence others. But you push yourself tirelessly and tend to overstrain your nerves.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance

    You are not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from your own and others' emotions. It's almost as if you could turn your feelings on and off at will so you should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for you could easily become too impersonal. Family ties and attachments are not as important to you as they are to most people and you often consider your friends closer to you than your blood relatives. Certainly, your sympathy and concern extends much beyond your immediate family. In your personal relationships, you insist upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as you choose. You do not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.

    You feel comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and you have little taste for convention and tradition.

     You have strong attachments to your past, the place where you grew up, your heritage, and family traditions. In fact, you may be unable to step out of the habits and roles you learned as a child. Your tie to your mother is very strong and you also seek mothering and protection from your spouse and other family members as well.

    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.

     Powerful and complex emotions stir you, and your emotional life and closest personal relationships are apt to be tumultuous until you do some deep soul searching. Buried feelings and memories that you do not want to deal with may surface at unexpected times. Holding in fears, secrets, or "taboo" thoughts and feelings can only serve to intensify them, and you need to share them with someone who is sympathetic, trustworthy, and fairly objective. Ridding yourself of emotional compulsions and deeply embedded patterns that do not serve you can be tremendously liberating, if you are willing to do the necessary inner house cleaning.

    Your attitude toward other people is very emotional and you feel a certain soul affinity with them. You have an inner need to express your feelings to others and are especially partial to groups where you can help to further their accomplishments.

    You seem to be happy in your environment and are likely to be the center of attraction in your surroundings. You have a kind, warm-hearted and cordial nature and treat others with sympathetic and compassionate understanding.

    You possess a certain inner greatness and because of your inner qualities, you have the ability to influence others. People look to you for guidance and advice, and your leadership is easily accepted by those with whom you come in contact.

    Warmhearted and generous in love, you cannot tolerate pettiness or stinginess in your partner. You want a Hero, a Prince or Princess to idolize and adore, someone you wholeheartedly admire and can be proud of. You are tremendously loyal and devoted once you give your heart to someone.

    You crave love, appreciation, and attention from others and hate to be ignored. You are rather susceptible to flattery and love to feel SPECIAL. You enjoy some drama and color in your love life and grand romantic gestures or an extravagant expression of generosity impresses you.

      You are a very sociable, congenial person and you wilt very quickly without the company of good friends and people to share good times with. You thoroughly enjoy working with others on group projects or community activities. You are quite happy when you are a part of a club, support group, or team of some sort.

     You love to laugh, celebrate, and enjoy yourself with your companions. Emotionally open and easygoing, you consider just about anyone a friend or potential friend. Your good humor and friendliness make you quite popular and well-liked. At times, you overdo the festivities, but you rarely regret this.

    Your pleasure-loving nature and your emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing your affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times you are likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times you are far more contained as described here. Because you are upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive you are to being left out or unappreciated.

     You tend to deprive yourself of pleasure, friendship, and love, either because you feel you don't deserve it or you think it's wrong to enjoy life too much. You may have been indoctrinated with a duty-and-work-before-all-else orientation early on. You may also think of yourself as unattractive or unlovable, and thus close your heart to opportunities to share love and companionship, never quite believing that others actually like you. You're apt to prefer solitude to being in uncomfortable social situations, and your shyness may be intense --  especially when young. Learning to truly love and accept yourself --  including whatever flaws or imperfections you believe you have --  is so important for you. This process of self-appreciation and self-love will reap rewards, especially in later life.

    You have a very romantic, idealistic vision of love and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh and blood human being ever quite lives up to your dream image of the Perfect Love. Though you frequently fantasize about love and romance, you may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. You can be evasive and dishonest with yourself and others, when it comes to love. Some of your love yearnings may be expressed through art, music, or an involvement with mysticism.

    You are likely to have many romantic or unusual experiences in love. You tend to fall in love quickly and enjoy a conquest, but then tire of what has been conquered. If you don't keep this in control, you could end up in a hasty marriage and a quick divorce.

    You are creative and ingenious and will put deep, feeling energy into your creations. But your emotional state is easily upset and you can be a fanatic in love. You tend to be possessive and have such intense needs that disappointments may be unavoidable.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals

    You seesaw between being too pushy, confrontational, and insistent on doing things your way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of your own. You strive for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. You may feel frustrated at times that you cannot simply do what YOU want to, that you must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or you may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if you do not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, you are not a loner. You achieve your goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. You are very concerned with the concept of fairness and become quite indignant and vocal if you sense someone is being taken advantage of. You avoid extremism and favor a balanced, moderate approach to living. You are unlikely to push yourself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach your goals.

     You are a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, you will forge ahead with your plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, you often feel other people get in your way and you prefer working on your own. You are active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.

    You are very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity, and good will. You notice these qualities (or the lack of them) more quickly than others and bring them up frequently. You are philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of your own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.

     You are intensely competitive, and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on your way to gaining your objectives. You could be drawn to activities that are dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. You put yourself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be your downfall.

    Your public image is important to you and you come across in a confident way. You are very ambitious, strive for material gains and aim toward wealth and possessions. You will achieve much popularity because of your harmonious and happy demeanor.

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 are very open-minded and deeply curious about distant places and ways of thinking and living that are different from your own. The urge to travel widely and to experience as much of the world as possible is very strong in you. The study of philosophy or religion also interests you a great deal. You benefit from your contact with other cultures, and you may be involved in linking those who are far apart geographically or philosophically.

    You aim high, have great vision, and are never satisfied with yourself unless you can achieve your goals in a big way. You are very opportunistic and are always ready to capitalize on a good idea. You utilize contacts with prominent and successful people to advantage, and are likely to win yourself an important and lucrative position in life.

     You are prone to impractical dreams and schemes and quixotic visions of what could be. If your plans are too farfetched or grandiose, they are apt to never be realized. Even if other factors in your chart indicate that you are a well-grounded, realistic person, you still have this unfettered imagination which sometimes runs away with you. Occasionally you can be duped.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You

     You often have a sense of longing or homesickness for something you cannot name or specify, and you may have both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.

     Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for you.

     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 have an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. You need to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve your aspirations. You will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.

    You seesaw between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what you have to or should do and what your spontaneous impulses tell you. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in your environment. You may, for instance, bitterly resent the government or authority figures who "crush your individuality", and yet ignore your obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will come down on you. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for you.

    You feel that you must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds which block your chances of fulfilling your life. You may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude which will only pull you further down. Severe problems with your father or those in authority are indicated. You may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing you hurt yourself primarily. If you can overcome your feelings of loneliness, bitterness, or isolation, and direct your energies into constructive arenas, you can be immensely effective for your tenacity and potential for achievement is great.



    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 need to take what you have learned (either through formal education or your own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it, express it in a way others can benefit from. Knowledge and understanding which does not enhance the quality of life for yourself and others in your world is of little real value. Putting your understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in your daily interactions with people, and in the multiple small choices you make everyday will enable you to really test your belief system and discover more about life.

    When under stress you are apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Cultivate your ability to live in the present!

    The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in developing a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether this be through religious or philosophical studies, a broadening education, or visiting and drawing upon the wisdom in distant lands or cultures. Cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to you.

    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.

    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 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 Imagination
Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive

     You have unusual, even eccentric friends, and you are likely to join groups, communities, organizations, or clubs which promote progressive or unconventional ideas, social change, or innovation in some form. You are dynamic and creative in business affairs and in organizations.

     You may have a great deal of confusion over money, financial matters, and ownership. Perhaps these things mean very little to you. Or possibly you simply don't know how to deal with them in a realistic, effective way.

     Also, you may make your living through artistic, musical, or highly imaginative endeavors.

     You have a deep interest in secrets, the underworld or unconscious, and anything hidden and mysterious. Psychoanalysis, investigating your dreams, and other methods of uncovering secrets are very interesting to you. You may be exceptionally perceptive intuitively or psychically. Your emotions and subconscious energies are complex, and periodic transformations and personal crises are sprinkled liberally throughout your lifetime.

    You are somewhat irritable and have a tendency to lose your temper quickly when you are with other people. You enjoy sudden frank talks or discussions with others, but are inclined to become upset or heated with people too easily.

    Your relationships are filled with passion and you are likely to have many affairs. You have a tendency to fall in love at first sight, but also to get bored quickly. You are very independent and have a constant need for excitement in your life.

    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 casual relationships.

    You tend to be restless and impatient and have a strong desire to bring your ideas to realization at all cost. At times you could experience sudden confusion about your direction in life and may question if you are on the right path.

    You tend to be a bit over-zealous in speech, have marked ability to analyze, but are inclined to criticize others, leading to frequent fights. You love verbal battles and have the energy and endurance to out-talk anyone.

    You are likely to have very intense emotional relationships and may be drawn to someone without knowing why. Very passionate, your sexual needs and desires are strong. You could go to extremes and obsession in love and should guard against a controlling attitude.

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 15 year group of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and a clear sense of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious drive to straighten out all the world's evils and create a world of perfect order. There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque. Oddly enough, there is also often a fascination with these very things that are so distasteful, and often a feeling of hopelessness and despair about the world's condition.

    These inner, emotional and conflicting qualities are reflected in the attitudes and life styles of your generation. Most people of your age group are conservative and ethical, and a small minority goes to the opposite extreme and relishes being strange or unusual in appearance, and sloppy or even grotesque in manners and appearance. There seems to be no middle ground for your generation. Usually, the rebellious type of behavior comes out during adolescence, and tends to subside thereafter, and your age group tends to be very conservative in later life.

    Your age group is not very good at compromising and tends to have strong ideas about what is right and what is wrong. There is a strong feeling that you must extinguish evil in the world. Certainly, fostering good works is very commendable, but a categorical and simple-minded response to complex issues is not helpful. Your age group will undergo great transformations in attitudes regarding Good and Evil and will swing to great extremes. Your generation will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.

    You were also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. You are part of a group of people who can be explosive and even violent in their reactions to situations. You do not tolerate being restricted, and your age group rebels with force and anger against oppressive situations.

The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group

    You are part of a 14 year group of people that have very intense psychic sensitivity and imagination. Your age group is very attracted to the strange, weird, and unusual. The sense of the macabre and bizarre is strong, and this is reflected in much of the music, art, and fashions of your age group. Novels and movies with mystery and chilling suspense are also popular with your age group. Emotional depression, drug use, and suicide are likely to be relatively high in your age group. There is also a deep mystical sense, and Eastern religions and meditation are very attractive to your age group.

     The entire generation to which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon you or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek the depths.

What is New and Different in Your Age Group

    You are part of a 7 year group of people who employ their skills and creativity to bring about a great deal of practical reform in education, medical care, and other social services. Your innovations are not radical or unusual, but they are usually effective.

    Your generation also has a curious mixture of both conservative, ethical people, and rebellious, disruptive people. There seems to be little middle ground for your age group, and you swing to one extreme or the other. The conservative people strive to reinstate strict moral standards, want to swiftly punish criminal behavior, and strive to highlight the importance of old-fashioned values in our lives, laws, and overall life style. On the other hand, the rebellious people of your generation are angry at the established way of doing things and act in a defiant, crude, and coarse manner.
