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 are a nurturer and a protector and are prone to what has sometimes been referred to as the "Atlas Syndrome", carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You take your responsibilities to others very seriously and often take on more than your share of their troubles as well. Though you appear (and indeed often are) rather passive, you possess much quiet inner strength and the ability to flow with, endure, and emerge again and again from life's inevitable adversities. You are apt to be surrounded by people who rely and depend upon you, and though you derive much satisfaction from providing, giving, and being needed, you can also let yourself be drained emotionally and/or financially by taking care of other people and not caring sufficiently for yourself.
You have a very strong need for security and are a "safety-first" creature, disinclined to make sudden changes or to take new directions which involve risk and unpredictability. Any break from the past is very difficult for you and you need a great deal of support when trying to make even healthy and positive changes in your life or habits. ("Habit" is a key word for you; you're apt to be very attached to yours!)
You are very retentive. You hold on to (sometimes cling to) the people, places, and ways which you are familiar with. You also tend to both hold in and hold on to feelings, and you may need to learn to express and let go of old feelings and past conditioning.
Physically, you are apt to be hearty and substantial, with a tendency to be stout. Unless other astrological factors indicate otherwise, you can also be downright lazy, especially when it comes to exercise. You instinctively choose comfort over challenge. (This is true in a broader sense as well, not only regarding physical exercise).
Your strengths include depth of feeling, patience, and generosity. The qualities you need to cultivate include initiative, openness to change and new experience, and a stronger sense of self.
You are likely to be overly humble or unsure of yourself and to look to others for inspiration, motivation, reinforcement, and approval. Tending to be somewhat passive, you must learn how to take initiative and motivate yourself.
A lack of warmth (either physically, emotionally, or both) may be evident in you, which can show itself physically as a low energy level, paleness and lack of color in the skin, or a tendency to be easily chilled, and emotionally as a marked coolness or aloofness with little spiritedness, joyfulness, or enthusiasm for living. Eating warming, spicy foods, living in a warm, sunny place, and using fire in your daily life (lighting candles, using a wood stove or fireplace for heat) can help balance you. Also, spending time with warm, cheerful, positive-minded people and developing a philosophy based on spiritual optimism can stir up your own zest of life.
Positively, you are unlikely to be egocentric and have a capacity for great patience and peacefulness.

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 very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind your quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When you want something you go after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and you usually get it.
You are not a person who lives lightly or superficially. You want to live passionately and intensely and are not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. You function well in crisis situations and often seek them out, for you enjoy the feeling of living at full capacity.
You are very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. You usually have strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. You approach life very instinctively and are not always fully conscious of why you feel or act as you do. You also have a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal kind of rapport with them.
In relation to others, you are rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until you get to know and trust them - and trust doesn't come easily to you. When you commit yourself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, you are intensely loyal and devoted to them and you also expect the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If you are ever betrayed by someone you care deeply for, you are capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as you once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, you are intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever you care about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in you.
Because of your natural reserve, others may see you as something of an enigma. You are quite self-protective and often defensive. You are also very magnetic, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Your emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and you could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, you aren't impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in you. At times you may wish you weren't so easy to read.
You can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about you that others can't help responding to favorably. Usually you appear confident and clear about who you are, and it's very difficult not to notice you or feel your influence when you are around.
You are intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, you are fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. You present your position skillfully, defend it ably and find satisfaction in doing so.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you approach life instinctively and intuitively (as described in the previous chapter), you also have a very analytical, rational, unemotional side as well, as discussed below. You may at times feel conflicting urges: to live passionately and dangerously, or to be conservative and play it safe.
At heart you are modest and humble, and you rarely strive to be in the limelight or in a position of power. You have a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and you prefer to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, you can be relied upon to be careful, efficient, and thorough in your work and you take pride in doing a job well. What you may lack in self-confidence you often make up for in skill - developing expertise, technical knowledge, and competency in some specialized area. You are adept at using your hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are your forte. Some would say you are a little TOO meticulous, for you can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as you think it should be, and you worry about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. You like to organize, categorize, and arrange everything into a logical system, and you are often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes you. You probably wish that you were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, you can be mercilessly self-critical as well. Whether in your environment or in yourself, you tend to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. You are strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in your self-estimation, and you often do not give yourself enough praise or credit.
You are also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about your diet, hygiene, and health habits. You have high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and will be bothered by elements in your surroundings (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Your tastes are simple, understated, but refined. Coarseness, bluntness, and vulgarity really offend you. You can be difficult to live with sometimes because of your fastidiousness, your sensitivity, and your idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though you seem rather cool and self-contained, you have a very helpful nature and you enjoy serving others. You are content to be in a supportive, assisting role rather than in the lead. You are quietly devoted to the ones you care for.
You are careful and cautious in your approach to life, realistic, practical, and disinclined to gamble. You analyze before you act. You are too serious sometimes. Allowing yourself to play and to make mistakes would be HEALTHY for you!
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.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within you, between your conscious attitudes and aspirations, and your deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that you may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with your subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in your body may well be a signal that you are denying or suppressing the messages from your subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, you will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of yourself and to express both of them. If you cannot do this, you're apt to attract many people into your life who reflect your denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make your life difficult. (Read Chapter 4's description of your moon sign and compare it to the above interpretation of your sun sign in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
You are positive, vital, energetic, active, a go-getter. You enjoy competition, and your initiative and self-confidence make you a winner.
Impulsive, restless, and spontaneous, your life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. You are extremely independent and crave excitement, adventure, freedom, and discovery. You have a rebellious streak and often feel you are unusual and different from the mainstream of society. The unorthodox and novel appeal to you.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
One of your greatest assets is your ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and with considerable social finesse, you work well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. You are objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and make an excellent consultant, mediator, or public relations person. You insist upon fairness and seek to bring harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people, and your diplomacy is a benefit in any business or social situation. You also have fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
You think a great deal about your career, your reputation and public image, and the way you make a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work you do.
You have a great capacity for concentration, handling details, and learning about subjects others might find ponderous, too technical, or dry. You could easily become a teacher of some specialized skill or field of knowledge. Practical applications and techniques are your forte. In speech you tend to be factual and to the point.
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.

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 often make decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because you've always done it a certain way and you are uncomfortable changing it. Even when you think you're being rational, your prejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence your thoughts a great deal. You are comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with you as well. You have good psychological insight into others.
Your emotional attitudes and instincts tend to be quite liberal. You so not want to be caged or dictated to, and you feel everyone is entitled to do as they please in their personal and emotional affairs. You tend to surround yourself with people who are unusual, creative, open-minded, unpredictable, restless, and changeable, and your relationships, with women in particular, may be somewhat unstable as a result. However, you enjoy an element of surprise and unpredictability.
You are quickly enthused by other people and probably will have many contacts with others that are terminated just as quickly as they are made. You don't like to be alone and always keep your house open for your friends and acquaintances.
In love, you desire a deep, intense, passionate union with your beloved and form very strong emotional bonds and attachments. You "marry" the person you love at a very deep emotional level, and are often extremely possessive and jealous of any threat to that union. You can be very demanding with your love partner. You tend to be somewhat suspicious of even platonic, friendly relationships your partner has. If you are ever betrayed, you are capable of hating with as much force and intensity as you once loved. You are attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
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 have a rich, colorful, dreamy imagination and a refined sense of beauty. Involvement in the arts, or with artistic, sensitive, or spiritually inclined people is very satisfying to you. In your friendships and romantic relationships, you tend to be unselfish, giving, and forgiving. You might enjoy joining with others for charitable events or social service.
You have deep, compelling love feelings that seem irresistible and often irrational. Your love relationships are very passionate and intense, and you experience both agony and ecstasy in love. You are always changed in a deep, fundamental way by your love experiences, though this may come about through painful and difficult confrontations or separations. You are something of an emotional fanatic about things you care about.
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.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are serious about your ambitions, and disciplined, dedicated, and tenacious in pursuing your objectives. Your drive and energy are directed toward practical material accomplishment and achieving concrete results. You also strive to be in a position of authority and social influence; you enjoy being the person who is in command.
You are hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort in order to achieve your long-range goals. You can easily become a workaholic and are very responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job.
Realistic and pragmatic, you are an excellent strategist. You attain success by formulating a conservative and workable plan and following through with it. You are not a gambler when it comes to attaining your goals; you depend on your own efforts and perseverance rather than good fortune. You have a natural shrewdness and instinct for business or organizational management.
You often buy things on impulse and you can be reckless with your material resources and money. You have certain possessions that you are extremely attached to and possessive of.
You have a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in your environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of your innate gifts. You have faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoy imitating new programs and projects.
Your self-control tends to be a bit weak and you seem to crave excitement. You are subject to sudden changes and seek emotional freedom. Your wants and needs tend to be different than those around you and others may think you are crazy because of your impulsive actions.
You persevere through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to attain your ambitions in life. Sometimes it may feel as if you're pushing a boulder uphill. Try to avoid bitterness or comparing your lot to others', as these could weaken your resolve.
You have a spiritual gift or vocation which colors your personal ambitions and drive for achievement. Helping people or serving the Whole is part of your role in life. Music, the arts, entertainment, and/or using imagery, visualization, or imagination can be aspects of your work in the world, also.
Your career is apt to involve beauty, adornment, the arts, or entertainment. You personal charm and appeal are significant factors in your profession, as well. You are very good at selling and promoting -- whether it is yourself, or your product or company.
You have an aptitude for detective or research work, or any field that involves digging beneath the surface for the hidden elements. An interest in psychology, hypnosis, and utilizing subconscious forces or subliminal messages may well be a key factor in your career.
Whatever your choice of profession, you are apt to feel a sense of inner mission about it and may pursue it with great zeal and intensity.
You are kind-hearted, social-minded and very popular. You know what you want and have the necessary confidence to succeed. Future oriented, you live in the joy of expectation. You are satisfied with yourself, are honest and always ready to lend a helping hand.
You have the ability to unite your own individuality with your community and consider other peoples feelings as important as yours. You work with others in successful cooperation and harmony and are a very good partner or colleague.

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 very hospitable and love having a large, comfortable, gracious home where you can welcome guests as well as family. Your childhood or heritage was very nourishing and supportive, giving you a solid, emotionally secure basis for your life, and you are therefore inclined to share what you have freely and generously.
Investing in your home or real estate is likely to be very rewarding for you.
You have a tendency to become overly optimistic about an idea or project, and overshoot the mark in your enthusiasm. You are great at stirring up excitement and enthusiasm, and others enjoy your company, but try not to be unrealistic in what you can expect from a situation.
You have the ability to be happy and are aware of your good fortune. Optimistic in outlook and thinking a lot, you find it easy to acquire self-knowledge. You love to learn new things and are always ready to increase your capacity for learning.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, you prevent yourself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. You are more rigid and dogmatic than you realize. Your approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. You take your own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if you are not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
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.
Basically shy, you tend to be somewhat inhibited in love and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing your love for someone. You long for love and dream about love, but also are inclined to torment yourself because of a seeming lack of affection.
You tend to have a pessimistic outlook and seem to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine your strength. Self-critical and uncertain about your goals, you feel that you cannot live up to your ideals and end up disappointed.
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.
Seeking interpersonal harmony, cooperation, and togetherness, and desiring to please or appease other people is very natural for you so much so that you accommodate them at your own expense. When you are under stress, you tend to look outside yourself for approval or answers, and you lean on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look to yourself for your answers and forge your own path through life is a key factor in development.
You are often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about your intentions or desires, and you can become enmeshed in a swamp of "little white lies" and evasions. Radical honesty with yourself and others is the only way out! This, however, leads you to confront some of your most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if "they" don't like me?" and "what if I have to go it alone?".
Cultivate your ability to be assertive, to take initiative and act on your own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are keys.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials you feel you possess, utilizing the qualities described above.
You tend to feel sad a lot of times and may sympathize with people who find themselves in the same boat. You are likely to cling to old things and want to pass on your traditions.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You are an unconventional and innovative person, and you are seen as a rebel, reformer, or highly unusual in your manners, appearance, or attitudes. You enjoy being unpredictable, and you do not conform to the standards that other people have set. Above all, you are an individual, and you do what you please regardless of customs and norms. Your environment and life circumstances may change frequently and abruptly.
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 could be blessed with sudden runs of good luck and may have a liking for speculating and gambling. Although taking chances may pay off for you at times, there also is a chance that you allow your winnings to go out just as fast as they come in.
There seems to be a nervous unrest about you, and you tend to be somewhat irritable and easily excitable. Others may consider your views of the world a bit peculiar, as your grasp of reality is apt to be a little confusing.
Your mind tends to wander and you have to beware of accidents caused by your absent-mindedness. Acting on spontaneous ideas, you could easily become involved in projects that are misrepresented or dishonest, leaving yourself open for others to question your intentions.
You seem to be in a continuous state of excitement, are quite aggressive and quick to anger. You want to be in control and are inclined to force your will on others. Your parents may be impatient and your up-bringing could have been too demanding.
You are likely to become involved with some adventurous enterprises in the pursuit of your somewhat strange objectives. Very interested in metaphysical and occult subjects, you also may encounter some supernatural experiences.

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 have a complex and deep emotional side. Your age group has a great fascination for the mysteries of life, and members of your age group will make extraordinary breakthroughs in the understanding of life processes; major advances in biological sciences will open up new technological possibilities. Intensive probing into genetic structure and cellular processes will accelerate genetic engineering into new vistas. Your generation also probes the mysteries of birth and death, and members of your age group will even develop laboratories for forging new understanding of what happens at birth and death. Other breakthroughs will be made in the understanding of animal behavior and sexual activity. Archeological studies will unearth vast new insights into the history of man, and the exploration of the ocean will receive a new impetus, spurred by unusual and interesting findings made at the bottom of the sea.
Behind all of this work is the deep, probing, penetrating interest in the mysterious. There is a deep fascination with sex, power, and the occult as well. Hypnosis, karate, and other mental and physical training techniques are likely to be very popular with your age group. The love of mystery is also likely to bring a revival of mystery novels and movies; your age group will bring the macabre into current fashion and style.
You are an emotionally complex group, and you can be prone to some very strange behavior. Intrigue and mystery are exciting to your age group, and hopefully this does not get the better of you, causing you to act in a cruel or grotesque manner. There is a chance that crime, violence, and emotional disturbance will be relatively high in your age group, but hopefully your interest in the mysterious, strange, grotesque, and macabre will not manifest in this way.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people who are conservative and traditional in spiritual aspirations and religious outlook. Your age group returns to some traditional basics in religion, and also traditional styles in music and art. Classical music and literature have a revival with your age group, and a great deal of inspiration is gained from the masters of arts, music, literature, and philosophy throughout history. Your age group is contemplative and reflective about religious matters and you take an objective and logical approach to religious issues. Many of you are cynics and critics of spiritual and metaphysical ideas.
Other age groups criticize your group for not having enough heart and compassion. Sometimes this is true and is evidenced by some unusually crafty and manipulative fraud and deception that occurs in the higher ranks of governments and large businesses.
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 are extremely enterprising and forward-looking. You are optimists and explorers. Your age group shoots for the stars, figuratively and literally. Space exploration takes on new dimensions as your age group pushes fervently to the next frontier.

The discoveries and contributions, however, are many, and more than compensate for the failures.
