    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 very stable individual, and you can be incredibly stubborn with very little appreciation for those whose opinions, experiences, or approach toward life differs from your own. You do not readily adjust to unfamiliar social situations, new ideas, or different types of people, and thus you can be rather narrow in your understanding and experience of life.

    Being an extremely pragmatic person, you are not interested in knowledge or concepts for their own sake. You value practical skills and  knowledge over abstract ideas, and you may look down upon people who are "too intellectual" or who "live in their heads", while at the same time feeling intellectually inferior to them.

    Learning to be more flexible would be of great benefit to you, for you are prone to be rather rigid in both body and mind, especially as years pass.

    As you will read in the following chapter, you also have a fiery, energetic approach to life, which gives you balance and provides you with the energy and vision to make life more exciting. Your challenge in this life is to keep your spark of enthusiasm and adventure alive and to be willing to take some risks; otherwise, life becomes burdensome for you.

Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others

    The following is a description of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you, the way you come across, the face you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will read about the "The Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes the kind of person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read this chapter and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between them, in which case "the inner you" may not shine through and others are in for some surprises when they get to know you at a more than superficial level. This chapter describes the costume you wear, your role in life, while Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.

    Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special. You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in the background or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do not take orders from others very well. You must have something of your own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that you can develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do, you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your own personal stamp on it.

    You also have a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and are deeply offended if someone treats you in a humiliating or dishonorable way. You will rarely confront the offender - you are too proud to do so - but you will lose your affection and respect for them. You dislike pettiness and hate to be snubbed or ignored.

    You admire others who are strong individuals like yourself. When you befriend someone, you are tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. You are very giving and generous, but your gifts are never anonymous - you expect recognition and appreciation for them. You also expect the intense loyalty that you offer to your dear ones to be reciprocated. However, you often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, for you do not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If you are not in the leading role, you aspire to be and will compete with the person who is.

    You have great heart and courage, and people often look to you for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. You always have your best face forward and rarely allow others to see you hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. You also have a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although you don't like others to realize just how important it is to you.

    Your outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Your own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interests you more than anything else. You feel that if you do your best where you are, the rest of the world will take care of itself.

     Despite the fact that your core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, you have a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in your environment. You may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, you often don't get the full recognition you wish for.

     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 have a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and you like to do things in a big way. If you do this primarily to impress others, you will find that many people prefer to avoid you. Even without meaning to, you can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.

     You seem quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems you are trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being yourself. You tend to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.

    You are somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. You change your opinions frequently and others never know what you will do. Because you are easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with you.

    You have a hypnotizing effect on people in your surroundings and others see you as someone with extraordinary capabilities. You have a strong desire to mentally dominate your environment, and with your ability to out-talk anyone, you can sway them to your opinions.

    You have a kind and loving nature and radiate friendliness and warmth wherever you go. Because of your obliging and cordial manner, you are likely to have many harmonious relationships with others.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation

    Although you are quite proud and you like to show off and impress other people with your accomplishments, appearance, etc., (as described in the previous chapter), you are really quite practical, solid, and down to earth also, (as will be discussed below). Because of this, you are likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.

    You are a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of your greatest assets. Once your course is set, you pursue it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway you from your purpose.

    You have a very practical nature and want to see concrete, tangible results for your efforts, and you are not one for spinning wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of your "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being, and security, for you have a great love of the physical world and you want to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though you will work long and persistently, you also have a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and you want to enjoy what you have worked for. In fact, you can be enormously lazy at times and have a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. You also love the beauty of the natural world and probably prefer a serene country setting rather than an urban life style.

    At heart your needs are simple and you are easy to please. You have a strong desire for security, stability, and peace, and will rarely make changes unless you are forced to do so. You are not very demanding emotionally, though you do crave lots of physical closeness and affection. Because of your faithfulness, emotional steadiness, and gentle strength, others often depend upon you for support. Though you hate upheaval and sudden changes, you usually maintain your poise and equanimity. You also have an innate sense of harmonizing with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time, and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or some creative project. You make an excellent mother or father, especially if you follow your instincts more often than "the experts".

    You have three major faults: one is your bullheaded obstinacy. The second is your unwillingness to deviate from your safe, predictable routine. And the third is your tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, you lack the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, to open your mind to the new.

     Your career, reputation, and public image are very important to you. You have a strong desire to be influential or make your mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy you; your ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for your unique effort and gifts. You may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.

    You are blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence, and cheerful generosity. Your good will and friendliness win you many allies. You also have grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. You expect the best, and usually get it.

    If you are following your true nature, your life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial, full of insecurity and excitement. You cannot and will not be forced into some pre-set mold, and you find it difficult to conform. Your offbeat interests and tastes lead you into ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. You have a very creative, inventive streak.

     You are apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything you do. Your extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, you don't always consciously understand why you feel as driven or intense about a given course of action as you do. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in your life. A significant death or loss in your life is apt to profoundly influence you and shape important decisions in your life, and you may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.

    You tend to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. You also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. You may have a feeling of being different than others and want to be your own person.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities

    Your mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and you dislike being rushed or forced to give an opinion before you have thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. You are also difficult to influence once your mind is made up.

    Though slower to grasp new concepts or learn new skills, you are patient and persevering and, in fact, often become quite adept at whatever you put your mind and hand to, for you are willing to devote much time and attention to it. You succeed not so much because of your mental brilliance, but because you have the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. You have an aptitude for singing or drawing.

     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 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.

    You tend to expect too much from people and consequently often feel let down by the actions of others. Feeling misunderstood, you may try to avoid contact with others as much as possible.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance

    Even-tempered and peace-loving, you are not easily ruffled and are rarely given to emotional displays. You have a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, you are tremendously stubborn and will resist any change which requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in your home life or marriage.

    You seek security and loyalty in love, are extremely devoted to your loved ones, and provide a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, you tend to cling and seek to keep others from changing.

    A great deal of physical affection, closeness, and touching is essential to your well-being, and you have a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times you substitute food for emotional comfort and love.

     You work well with the public and have an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to you, and you may invest more of your emotional energy into your career or public life than in your private life. Providing for and caring for others in a professional capacity is very likely.

    No matter how you appear on the surface, you have a very soft heart and others can always appeal to your sympathetic, affectionate side. You especially care about the needs of children, mothers, and families, and you want a love partner who values marriage, home, and family as much as you do. Unkindness or harshness offends you very much.

    You often feel that you must do something or be something other than what you are in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. You are very sensitive to criticism and easily feel left out or neglected, and though you may appear cool or distant, you actually care very much about being included. Because you are so sensitive, it may seem easier for you to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises that can occur when you let others really know you in an intimate, personal way. Your reserve and caution make establishing a close emotional rapport with others difficult for you, and you become very attached to the few people you consider "real friends". You can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if you view them as times to nourish yourself and develop your own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.

    In addition to your rather introverted, serious, or self-contained side, you have a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. You crave both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make you rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance one another. Your more free and unpredictable side will now be described.

    Your childhood and early home life was in many ways unsettling and the nurturing you received was erratic and unreliable at best. You have had to move a lot, or your family may have had some conspicuous differences from other people so that you were often an outsider or "weirdo". As an adult you may long for "normalcy" while at the same time you balk at any routine, structure, formality, or restrictions.

    When emotionally stressed at all, you often become nervous or shaky. Developing a regular rhythm and a way of life that is steady and consistent (if not traditional) would be beneficial to you, both emotionally and physically.

    You instinctively know your mission in life. You are satisfied knowing inside yourself what you can do and don't feel the need to be dependent on anyone. But you are also sensitive to others needs and have a strong desire to spend time with your loved ones.

    You have a good-natured disposition and an affectionate and cordial manner. Charming, optimistic and outgoing, you are warm and friendly to everyone you meet. You are at peace with the world and want to share your feelings with your friends and acquaintances.

    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.

    Your love feelings and desires are easily aroused but it may be difficult to sustain your romantic interest in a relationship after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". You enjoy a partner who is dynamic and alive, someone with a strong independent streak, and you do not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. You want to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if that means instigating a fight.

     Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make you very happy. You want to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and you want to be recognized for your beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. You may "marry" your work - that is, be more involved in your career than in your private life. You are a natural hostess or diplomat.

    You are intensely amorous and attractive to the opposite sex, and are not inclined to friendly platonic relationships. There is much tension in your love life - often because you put your desires ahead of your partner's, and are impatient about having your love needs satisfied. The whole arena of love, romance, and sex is endlessly fascinating for you and you are not happy without a love partner. You can "burn yourself out" by pouring so much of your energy into romance.

    You are serious and find it difficult to enjoy yourself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. You rarely do something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in your early life, you are very cautious about becoming close to people and sharing your feelings. Though you crave love and affection, intimacy is difficult for you. You may become romantically involved with people who do not value you or treat you well. You need to learn to love and value yourself before you will find happiness in love.

    You are considerate and compassionate and have an innate understanding of the wants and needs of people in general. You probably will have many pleasant and friendly relationships and your attachment to others is likely to be very deep.

    You seem to have an unusual power of attraction to other people and frequently may associate with others whether they are good for you or not. Very compulsive in love, you could have a kind of tragic love union.

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

    You avoid direct confrontation as much as possible and are uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition, and personal power. Your ego drive is not very strong and you are not especially ambitious or eager to push your way to the top. You may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which you will really fight is when you feel your loved ones, or something dear to you, is being harmed, for then you are a fierce defender. You have a very strong protective side. You act on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone you perceive as threatening to your home or family. However, you will rarely initiate a confrontation. Your goals also tend to be very personal and centered around family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.

    You are sensitive to stress and do not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. You are very touchy, irritable, and difficult to live with when there are many demands or tensions at work. Your energy level is inconstant and is very much dependent upon the emotional harmony (or lack of it) in your home. A supportive partner is of great benefit to you in helping you achieve your goals and desires.

     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 are very serious about reaching your goals and feel that keeping your nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. Hard work, persistent effort, and concentration upon a single objective are the ways you achieve your aims in life. You exercise great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what you desire. You meet obstacles stoically and will struggle patiently through difficult circumstances. You feel that you must rely on yourself alone, that it's all on your shoulders, and you can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much from yourself and others. Often you hold yourself back, doubting your own power and ability. You may feel that you meet great resistance whenever you try to assert yourself or take initiative, and that is very frustrating to you. However, you have the power of endurance and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.

    You seem to be in a constant state of deep inner turmoil, are excited easily and subject to changes of mood. Driven by inner compulsion you may do things that invite quarrels or disputes and because of your hasty reactions you also are prone to injuries.

     You gain your objectives and ambitions in life through your personal charm, attractiveness, ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for you. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area you can succeed in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead to your downfall.

     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.

    You are quite restless and indefatigable in the pursuit of your objectives. Only satisfied with maximum results, you fight to the last moment. Some of your endeavors could be a bit daring though, and your aims a bit high.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy

     Material comfort, security, and well-being are quite important to you, and you are not one to have your head in the clouds when financial matters and future security are at stake. Your strengths are practicality, a love of the earth, and the ability to take great delight in the sensual pleasures of the natural world. Also, when you feel secure financially, you are likely to be very generous and hospitable.

     Your career or contribution to the world at large is likely to touch many people's lives in a very positive, helpful way. You aim high and have an innate confidence and trust both in your own abilities and in life in general, which enables you to go far. You want to do something BIG with your life, and you attract the support you need to do so, for your aims are not solely for your own personal benefit. You want to give something back to the world, or to improve others' lives as well as your own.

    Your gaiety, enthusiasm, optimism, and a positive, energetic, upbeat attitude generate a lot of opportunities for you. You enjoy being spontaneous and taking risks. You must have a great deal of personal freedom and independence, and prefer the "wide-open spaces" to a very rigid, structured lifestyle. Your sense of humor and playfulness enable you to make it through the rough spots in life, as well as to bounce back when those gambles you make do not quite pan out. You enjoy surprises and exploring new territory, both intellectually as well as physically.

     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 love to participate in social functions and parties and are likely to seek advantages through other people. You may meet some important people who could open new doors for you, and may share some of your happiest experiences in life with others.

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

     You fear becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance yourself or deny your needs for closeness and intimacy so that you won't be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, you may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for you.

     You may have nebulous but ever-present guilts and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It's as if you don't trust Life itself, and are always seeking ways to defend yourself from its dangers and its unknowns. You must learn to overcome your ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.

    Very cautious and reserved, you could find it difficult to express yourself. You are a bit inhibited around others and don't seem to get much cooperation from them, causing you to be disappointed.

    You strongly rebel against any restrictions and may have the desire to break away, over-throwing all thought of responsibility. On the other hand, limitations in your live also could suddenly pass away, leaving you free to do your own thing.



    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 are capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on your path, but when under stress you become downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change is. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what you have, you are apt to ignore the subtle signals you receive about needing to do something differently which often leads to some sort of crisis.

    You need to learn the limits of your ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow new life and growth to happen. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for you. You also need to develop a balanced attitude toward your appetites and desires, as you tend to overindulge and/or deny yourself excessively.

    The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in trying to strike a balance between your inner, personal life, and your career or involvement with the world at large. Focusing attention on your home, family situations, and creating a secure inner base is the direction you need to follow.

    The specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or which you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:

Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all of the time, needing to be important and special.

An overreliance on luck or grace, living for tomorrow, gambling, overconfidence, overextending yourself and taking on more than is humanly possible, and/or being dogmatic about your philosophy of life or religious beliefs.

    You are very social, love artistic events and entertainment, and have the ability to show your feelings without reservation. You probably found joy in learning things early in life and keep in close contact with your family and other relations.

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

     Your childhood or your relationship with your parents was unsettling or unstable in some way, so that you may never have felt that you had firm ground beneath your feet. One of your parents may have been unusual, eccentric, or an inconstant influence in your life. Abrupt changes in location or in family relationships may have made you feel insecure, but positively you were given more freedom and less pressure to conform to conventions, which enables you to be more of an individual and less tethered to restrictive ideas of how one "should" behave, feel, or live.

     Your creative self-expression has a very imaginative quality, and you have a particular affinity for drama, theater, film, and other artistic mediums in which creative fantasy plays a major role.

     In love and romance, also, you often have glamorous fantasies that have little to do with reality.

     You have a probing, penetrating mind and are highly analytical and critical in your thinking. Work that involves research, investigating mysteries or hidden causes, or deep study and analysis suits you very well.

     You are also a convincing speaker, bringing others around to your own point of view by the intensity of your convictions.

    You have a great need to be independent and free. There is an inner rebellion in you that makes it difficult for you to be adaptable. Your domestic life could be filled with nervous tension and a tendency toward excessive demands made on the family.

    You are optimistic, confident and enterprising and are able to enchant others with constant new ideas. You have a progressive attitude and enjoy anything new and different. Opening up to others easily, you may surprise them with occasional outbursts of gaiety.
    Your energy and physical vitality may not be as great as it could be. You seem to tire easily and have a tendency toward idleness or drifting. You also may have to fight the temptation of becoming involved in some corrupt or dishonest ventures.

    You have a somewhat melancholic nature and probably lack self-confidence. Feeling inferior, you are likely to fear things that are not at all threatening to others. A sense of anxiety for no apparent reason may cause you to feel depressed at times.

    Your romantic associations could be a source of disappointment. You tend to fall in love for the wrong reasons and should beware of immoral conduct. You love the momentary glitter of the world of illusion and find it difficult to face the real world.

    You have a tendency to put too much trust in your luck and may adopt the attitude that everything you do will work out all right somehow. You are inclined to make many plans and expect them to materialize without much physical effort on your part.

    Because you can't seem to relate to your surrounding with ease, you hide your true nature and may pretend that you are different than you really are. You also should beware of deceitful people in your circle who may not have your best interests at heart.

    You don't seem to be at ease with the world around you and may experience periodic states of depression. You should guard against underhanded schemes or misrepresented facts when dealing with others in order to prevent being hurt or disappointed.

Chapter 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group

    In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may not share all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by your generation.

    The first topic is "The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group". In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge, even compulsion, of your age group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface with great force and power, and consequently leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The second topic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group", that describes the dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your age group. The third and last topic is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group", which describes areas in which your age group tends to be innovative, inventive, unusual, and also where it may be unstable and unreliable.

    The characteristics described below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years to about 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors described in each of the three sections below.

The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group

    You are part of a 12 year group of people who are deeply interested in personal relationships. Your age group has a deeply-rooted yearning to see people relating and communicating with each other effectively and harmoniously. There is little egotism and a willingness to hear the other person's side of the story and a readiness to compromise and arbitrate different points of view. In fact, the need for harmonious, peaceful relationships is so strong that there is a tendency to overlook real differences and to focus only on the similarities in an attempt to bring different parties into harmony with each other.

    Interest in psychology and sociology is high in your age group. There is a tremendous heightening of awareness of social skills. Your age group will experiment with different marriage styles, family relationships, and even business relationships in an attempt to bring fair treatment and effective communication between people. Interest and appreciation for other cultures is also strong, and your age group will work hard to preserve and support the cultural heritage of all ethnic groups.

    Your strong yearning for equitable and harmonious relationships is also reflected in major advancements in trade agreements, arms control, and international cooperation that are designed and implemented by your generation. These agreements and policies foster a much safer and more cooperative environment for all, although there is also a tendency for greedy individuals to take advantage of the conciliatory atmosphere and twist situations to their own ends.

    In short, you are part of a generation of individuals who are deeply interested in other people; you are a humanistic and humanitarian group. You will struggle and experiment with personal relationships, and forge new models for how people can relate as friends, family members, and members of nations as well.

The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group

    You are part of a 14 year group of people that are extremely idealistic and farsighted in their dreams. Your age group is very liberal and expansive in outlook, and consequently churches become much more flexible and more eclectic in their approach during your life time. Religions that do not adapt to the broad-minded attitude of your age group simply are unable to attract very much interest and involvement from you.

    A great deal of metaphysical musing and speculation is evident in your age group, and there is a very strong interest in all manner of psychic phenomena, UFO's, prophecy, etc. This interest will open many new doors and insights, but will also often lead to a great deal of fantasizing and speculation that is taken more seriously than it should be.

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

What is New and Different in Your Age Group

    You are part of a 7 year group of people who break up all manner of taboos regarding death, sex, and any other personal, private, or difficult topics. Your age group is less modest about sex than other age groups and promiscuity is not uncommon. You love emotional intensity, and there are many extremists and fanatics in your age group.
