Chapter 1: General Characteristics


     Your fundamentalneeds, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the fourastrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these fourbasic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality,realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), andwater (emotional needs and feelings).


    Your "elementalmake-up" is described below. Remember that most people are"unbalanced" or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in acertain element (or elements), it simply means that you need to consciouslydevelop that aspect of yourself to learn to appreciate and/or to work harder inthat dimension of life.


    Sometimes we overvalue theelement 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 bereiterated and explained in more detail in the following chapters.


Fire and Air areStrong (F,E,A,W Scores = 19,4,25,1):


    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 therut of old habits is not a problem for you, as you have numerous interests andthe energy to pursue many of them. However, overextending yourself, pouringyour energies out without taking time to replenish yourself, scattering yourforces or moving on to new things before you finish something are definitetendencies. 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 misssomething interesting "out there". Paying attention to your body'sneeds for rest, attending to your own inner world and to your feelings andgiving sufficient attention to your immediate family and their needs issomething you need to learn to do more of. It would benefit you to simply stopfrom time to time and just be for awhile.


    You are very idealistic andare frequently disappointed that we do not live in a perfect world, but it isthrough the vision and energy of people like yourself that new ideas areintroduced and positive changes made. Your gifts are your ability to entertainand play with creative ideas and possibilities, to seek new solutions toproblems, and to venture gladly into new territory (literally or figuratively).


    You need to cultivate thequality of receptivity; the ability to listen and quietly absorb what anotheris saying, for instance, instead of focusing on what you have to say. Learningto wait and to trust rather having to make something happen or trying to bendthe world to your will is another aspect of this.


Water is Weak (F,E,A,WScores = 19,4,25,1):


    You have difficulty dealingwith your own and others' emotions. Feelings and the emotional reality of asituation are often ignored or discounted by you and you may thus seeminsensitive or uncaring to others. Deep emotional rapport, empathy, compassion,and sensitivity to the feelings of others is something that you need todevelop, and will be in more evidence later in life rather than in your youth.


    Though you may appearemotionally self-sufficient or above it all, your denied feelings can result inphysical problems, so it is wise and important for you to learn to acknowledgeand express all of your emotions.


    You may also find that youcrave a great deal of liquid, or to live near bodies of water, as a way to gainbalance.







Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear ToOthers


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




    High-spirited,enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure, change, exploring newterritory, and are not happy confined to the same safe, familiar, secure littleworld all the time. You have a strong restlessness and yearning for somethinggreater than anything you've yet experienced, and you often live in your dreamsand visions for the future. You tend to believe that the grass is greenersomewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally or figuratively.Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect something better ahead. You loveto have a goal, something to aim for, but once you achieve it you are on tosomething else. You are ever on the lookout for new opportunities and you are agambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility ofdiscovering something new is what makes life interesting for you. You havegreat faith in life and bounce back quickly from disappointment and failure.


    Freedom-loving andindependent, you cannot tolerate being caged for very long, and friends andloved ones must respect your need for freedom of movement. Binding commitmentsand responsibilities often weigh heavily upon you and you may resist"growing up" and taking on the limitations of adult life.


    You are friendly andoutgoing and have a great sense of fun and playfulness. You are alsophilosophically minded and often quite outspoken about your convictions andbeliefs. Sometimes you get carried away with your enthusiasm of the moment andyou tend to exaggerate. You are often a big talker, a big maker of promises,and you are usually pretty convincing. You do everything in a big way, a generousway. You like to have the best, and you heartily dislike stinginess,littleness, or pettiness. Your vision is always large. You are able to perceivethe big picture, general patterns and principles, and are well suited topolitics, business, higher education or religion.


    Other people see you as agood sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent anddependable. You may also be seen as a wise person since you do not get boggeddown in pettiness and trivialities, and are able to communicate a larger way oflooking at situations, one that opens up new potentials. You are a person whobelieves in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never givesup on life, and you inspire and encourage others to keep looking forward.

Chapter 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group


    In this chapter we willdiscuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may notshare all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatlyaffected by the tone that is set by your generation.


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


    The characteristicsdescribed below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years toabout 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors describedin each of the three sections below.


The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group


Pluto in Libra:


    You are part of a 12 yeargroup of people who are deeply interested in personal relationships. Your agegroup has a deeply-rooted yearning to see people relating and communicating witheach other effectively and harmoniously. There is little egotism and awillingness to hear the other person's side of the story and a readiness tocompromise and arbitrate different points of view. In fact, the need forharmonious, peaceful relationships is so strong that there is a tendency tooverlook real differences and to focus only on the similarities in an attemptto bring different parties into harmony with each other.


    Interest in psychology andsociology is high in your age group. There is a tremendous heightening ofawareness of social skills. Your age group will experiment with differentmarriage styles, family relationships, and even business relationships in anattempt to bring fair treatment and effective communication between people. Interestand appreciation for other cultures is also strong, and your age group willwork hard to preserve and support the cultural heritage of all ethnic groups.


    Your strong yearning forequitable and harmonious relationships is also reflected in major advancementsin trade agreements, arms control, and international cooperation that aredesigned and implemented by your generation. These agreements and policiesfoster a much safer and more cooperative environment for all, although there isalso a tendency for greedy individuals to take advantage of the conciliatoryatmosphere and twist situations to their own ends.


    In short, you are part of ageneration of individuals who are deeply interested in other people; you are ahumanistic and humanitarian group. You will struggle and experiment withpersonal relationships, and forge new models for how people can relate asfriends, family members, and members of nations as well.


The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group


Neptune inSagittarius:


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


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


Neptune SextilePluto:


     The entire generationto which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth andawakening. This will not be forced upon you or precipitated by unavoidableevents, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seekthe depths.


What is New and Different in Your Age Group


Uranus in Scorpio:


    You are part of a 7 yeargroup of people who break up all manner of taboos regarding death, sex, and anyother personal, private, or difficult topics.
