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 an "up" person, positive-minded and lively, and you generally have an invigorating, inspiring, energizing effect upon other people. Boredom or getting stuck in the rut of old habits is not a problem for you, as you have numerous interests and the energy to pursue many of them. However, overextending yourself, pouring your energies out without taking time to replenish yourself, scattering your forces or moving on to new things before you finish something are definite tendencies. You can burn yourself out by being involved in too many activities. You seem impelled to be always in motion, as if you were afraid you would miss something interesting "out there". Paying attention to your body's needs for rest, attending to your own inner world and to your feelings and giving sufficient attention to your immediate family and their needs is something you need to learn to do more of. It would benefit you to simply stop from time to time and just be for awhile.
You are very idealistic and are frequently disappointed that we do not live in a perfect world, but it is through the vision and energy of people like yourself that new ideas are introduced and positive changes made. Your gifts are your ability to entertain and play with creative ideas and possibilities, to seek new solutions to problems, and to venture gladly into new territory (literally or figuratively).
You need to cultivate the quality of receptivity; the ability to listen and quietly absorb what another is saying, for instance, instead of focusing on what you have to say. Learning to wait and to trust rather having to make something happen or trying to bend the world to your will is another aspect of this.
You have difficulty dealing with your own and others' emotions. Feelings and the emotional reality of a situation are often ignored or discounted by you and you may thus seem insensitive or uncaring to others. Deep emotional rapport, empathy, compassion, and sensitivity to the feelings of others is something that you need to develop, and will be in more evidence later in life rather than in your youth.
Though you may appear emotionally self-sufficient or above it all, your denied feelings can result in physical problems, so it is wise and important for you to learn to acknowledge and express all of your emotions.
You may also find that you crave a great deal of liquid, or to live near bodies of water, as a way to gain balance.

Water is Weak (F,E,A,W Scores = 16,4,26,3)
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.
You tend to be somewhat insecure with other people and strive for safety and security in your life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to you, and you have a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
You are very sensitive to your surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. You tend to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that you cannot stand up to them.
Other people may consider your environment a bit strange and you like to surround yourself with a certain air of mystery. You tend to be very secretive and are likely to exert your power from behind the scenes.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you appear quite pleasant, agreeable, and ready to compromise for the sake of harmony (as described in the previous chapter), you also have a strong need to shine and express your own opinions. You have the potential to be a great leader, manager, coach, or teacher.
Proud and intensely individual, you really want to stand out, to be the very best you can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for your unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to you, and you cannot tolerate being in the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". You must put your personal stamp on whatever you do, and direct your own course in life. You need to have a place where you can shine, express yourself creatively, and be the one in charge.
You have big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality, and enthusiasm to bring them into being. You also have a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For you it is true that "all the world's a stage" and you secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desire to be the Star or Hero in the play. You want to be great, and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. You need someone to believe in you and your dreams. Though you appear radiantly self-confident and independent, you are actually very much dependent on the affirmation, love, and recognition of others. You cannot bear being unnoticed or unappreciated.
You also love wholeheartedly and generously and really know how to make the person you love feel special. You love the magic of "being in love" and know how to keep the romance alive in your relationships. You are also immensely loyal and will defend your loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend your pride or betray your trust. However, you like to be the strong one in a relationship and you really do not share the leading role very easily. Ideally you need to find a person who is as strong-willed as yourself, but who will not try to dominate or compete with you.
Your strengths are your zest and love for life, your creative power, and your warm and generous heart. Your primary fault is your tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned with the impression you are making and with your own creative self-expression that you forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around 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.
You have to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill your personal destiny. However, you do have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from your father or other significant men in your life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of you and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of your greatest handicaps, and at times you may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of your own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in your life. You need to learn to follow your own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what your critics or the authorities say.
You have an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. You also have a deep need for affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion you feel drawn to someone. Your relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
Your physical energy is strong and you are able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task you want to do. You can act quickly and get a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But you also have a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
Your vitality is very strong and you are likely to be a workaholic. If you are not careful, you may work so hard that you become exhausted, leaving yourself open to physical breakdown. You also have a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
With your charm and outgoing personality you have no trouble attracting people and enjoy pleasant and congenial relations with them. You may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
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
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 have very little interest in or facility for technical, mechanical things. The human personal side of life, people, psychology, the inner side of life is your forte. You understand children and enjoy conversing, counseling, listening, and learning about them. You also need a variety of social and intellectual experiences on a regular basis, and will be restless, nervous, and irritable if you can not get out and about. You often need to be mobile, to go for a walk or a drive, to settle yourself and reestablish your emotional equilibrium. You tend to dwell on the past, to ponder its significance, and to long for it at times. Nostalgia and sentimentality color your thinking quite a bit.
Your desire to make a point sometimes overrides your receptivity to others' views. You can be a good listener but often it is hard for you not to speak out.
You have a sharp tongue and ready wit, and you enjoy intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, you know how to drive your point home. You also possess quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players is a suitable arena for you.
Although you are perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), you are also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. You combine the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. You have an introverted frame of mind and you tend to dissect or deeply analyze your own and other people's inner lives and experiences.
You scrutinize, analyze, dissect, and critically assess ideas before you accept them. You may seem judgmental, serious, and unreceptive to others' thoughts, particularly if they are frivolous or poorly thought out. You prefer substantial conversation rather than superficial, light, meaningless banter. You generally think deeply and carefully before speaking and wish others would do the same! Communication problems, like extreme reticence, stuttering, or interpersonal difficulties, may well be challenges for you.
You come across as an intellectual and your thinking more or less is connected with words. You have a feeling for languages and could do well as a writer or in a position involving more than one language. You also may enjoy giving lectures.

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 are emotionally expressive and often dramatize your feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. You can not hide your instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and you don't make any pretenses about your personal sympathies or antipathies.
You have a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets you into trouble, as you take risks on impulse or whim.
You feel that little, daily acts of caring and thoughtfulness are essential to the happiness and success of a relationship and you know how to make others feel accepted, loved, and cherished. You enjoy good relationships with women.
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.
Although you get hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), you also have a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure which enables you to rein in some of your more aggressive tendencies. This side of you is described below.
Serious and emotionally reserved, you were probably never an exuberant, playful child, and you rarely express yourself in a spontaneous, childlike manner. You are cautious about letting others get close to you and sometimes withdraw from people altogether. At times, even when you are with people, you feel lonely or isolated. Learning to appreciate your own company and to find satisfying solitary activities is essential to your emotional well-being.
Your are in harmony with yourself and the world around you and are guided by your instincts. The motherly type, you would like to solve everyone's problems. Very warm, sympathetic and cordial, you radiate harmony wherever you go.
In love, you are more interested in a person's sense of humor and intelligence than in their physique. You like a partner who is mentally alive and who keeps you guessing a little bit, and you become restless and bored with someone who never asks questions, never changes or surprises you. Talking, sharing ideas, going places together, and learning new things together is very important to your happiness. You need lots of social stimulation, are something of a flirt, and like to have many friends of both sexes. A possessive, jealous partner is very stifling for you.
You are attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand your horizons, teach you something, or show you places and worlds you have never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with your love partner is important to you.
Also, you feel a love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with your own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of yours.
You are extremely amorous and it is difficult for you to go without a romantic involvement for very long. When you are attracted to someone, you pursue them very ardently and sometimes come on too strong. Doing creative work or artistic work can also satisfy the very strong desire for love and beauty that you feel.
Your association with those around you may have a depressing influence on you causing you to shy away from mutual participation of any kind. Finding it difficult to express yourself emotionally, you are quite likely to become a loner.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are a "busy bee" - energetic, restless, and forever on the go. Your active mind is always buzzing with ideas and you find it difficult sometimes to relax, slow down, or take time to reflect and replenish yourself. You tend to live on nervous energy. You can accomplish much in short bursts but projects that require long-term commitment, stamina, and steady, persistent effort are not easy for you. You often scatter your energies into so many directions and activities at once that you cannot finish or follow through on some of them. You need variety, change, and mental challenges.
You have a sharp and eager mind, and you enjoy games and competitions that have a mental component. You like to match wits with someone else.
You often achieve your desires by your verbal skill, your ability to speak clearly, vigorously, and convincingly for what you want. Your drive and energy is more mental than physical. You use your wit, intelligence, communication skills, social sophistication, and awareness to achieve your goals.
You have passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. You are willing to dedicate a great deal of your energy and force to an important cause, and you'll act decisively on your beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes you get so involved and identified with your ideas that you cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes you philosophically.
You have courage and zest for life which can lead to great accomplishments. You use your will-power constructively and are able to achieve something in life. You have the ability to advance your interests in almost any area.
You are quite passionate, love children, and are inclined to wish for a large family. In fact, you are likely to become completely bound up in your marriage and family life.
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.
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 have a clear view of your aim in life and plan a course of action very thoroughly and decisively. You pursue your objectives with great assurance, gladly accept responsibility, and you love to work because you like what you do.
Optimistic and adaptable, you know how to take advantage of opportunities and may find and apply unconventional methods to the solution of problems. You like variety and change and have a very good understanding of things.
You are very ambitious, diligent and industrious and seem to be blessed with a good dose of luck. You tend to succeed with your objectives on a big scale and can expect advantages, advancements and promotions in your occupation.

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.
You are successful in dealing with other people's money or material assets, either through your work or by combining and sharing what you have with someone else (marriage or business partner). An "inheritance" (either material or psychological) which comes through your spouse or other close partner is likely to benefit you immensely.

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.
It may be difficult for you to play spontaneously or just let your hair down, for you tend to inhibit that side of yourself by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression you are making.
You may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for you want very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though you may indeed be outstanding, you also need to learn to relax and enjoy yourself more.
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 dislike tense or frustrating situations and have a strong desire to free yourself from them. Acting quickly at times, you suddenly overcome your inner inhibitions. You also have the ability to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for your advancement.
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.
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.
When under stress you are apt to close down the flow of your emotions, ignoring your needs and feelings in order to do what you perceive as your duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation require. This can lead to a certain rigidity and hardness. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of you makes life more a burden than an adventure.
Developing tenderness, caring, feeling, and the feminine, nurturing aspects of yourself is an important step in your unfolding. You need to learn how to nourish and lovingly attend to both yourself and others. Letting yourself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
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.
Be a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems you face. Act on your own behalf instead of stalling, waiting, or hoping someone else will do it for you. Assert yourself openly and courageously and don't be afraid to make mistakes or fall down. Any new initiative is likely to have a few trial runs. Stir up a healthy fighting spirit, pick yourself up, and go! Appreciate conflict and confrontation as a way to grow.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas 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 may have a deep aversion to groups, associations, clubs, or organizations of any kind. Any such group you become involved in is likely to be either for intense personal growth, change, and healing, or centered around social change and revising society in some manner.
You have a strong desire to establish yourself and to be accepted by the world around you. However, if others choose not to accept and follow you, you are likely to go on your way doing your own thing anyway.
You are inclined to be a bit self-willed and could find it difficult to become a united member of your community. At the same time you have a tendency to become upset over the anti-social behavior of others.
You are extremely sensitive and may brood over the slightest incidents. Plagued by inner discontentment, you are discouraged easily and also could be subject to deception. Circumstances concerning your family could be strange and mysterious.

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.
