The interpretation of your astrology chart begins on the following page.
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.
It is very difficult for you to be objective, detached, or to view a situation from anyone else's point of view - your own feelings and personal experiences color your judgment too much. Though you may sympathize or feel for someone, you may in fact not really understand where they are coming from.
You need to develop the ability to stand back and reflect on life, to analyze a situation logically. Also, it's very important for you to learn to communicate. Because you sense and feel so much, you may expect others to know what you are experiencing without telling them anything. As mentioned above, words don't come easily to you but you would benefit greatly by learning to articulate and express yourself verbally - otherwise you can stew in your own feelings too much, or find yourself at the mercy of your own poorly-understood emotional patterns.

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.
You have an appealing physical appearance and this, along with your winning ways, is apt to make you a favorite in your immediate environment. You're the "easy" one, and you know how to please others. Don't take your personal charm for granted, however, because you may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
In significant ways, your emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way you present yourself. (Compare this chapter with the description of your moon sign in Chapter 4.) As a result of this inconsistency, you may be uncomfortable showing your instinctive responses and true feelings. You may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When you are in an emotionally charged situation, those who don't know you well may be quite surprised at your reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept yourself, so that you don't act as if your emotional needs and impulses didn't count for very much.
You would like to embrace the whole world and are everyone's favorite. Very impressionable, you have an inner feeling for others and can relate well to everyone. You are likely to have a busy social life and also enjoy working in group activities.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you have very strong feelings and you often react to situations passionately (as described in the previous chapter), you are basically very tender and soft-hearted. There are at least two sides to you: a rather jealous and guarded side, and a much more lenient, generous, and forgiving side (discussed below).
At heart you are very gentle, impressionable, and receptive -a dreamer. The world of your imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to you as anything in the outer world, though you may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting your inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, you have a rich inner life, though you may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. You usually keep to yourself.
You have great sensitivity and empathy with others, and you often sense things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. You are tolerant, forgiving, and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. You have deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and often feel others' pain as if it were your own. You sympathize with the needy, the disadvantaged, the misfits of society. You are capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker, or minister. However, you tend to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of your kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon you. You have little sense of boundaries, of limits, of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not your strong points.
You are a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and you try to avoid open conflict. You will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than directly confronting them, and you tend to lack the positive fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. You are fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. You do things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Your gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for you have a great sensitivity, inspiration, and limitless imagination. You respond very strongly to beauty and to love.
Your faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than taking strong, definite action to change your life for the better. You also tend to become so detached from your immediate environment that you live in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around you more than it bothers you.
You have a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and you love to perform. You enjoy being the center of attention and you seek to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. You are very involved in your own creativity and self-expression, and take great pleasure in developing and using your special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. You have a strong sense of pride.
You have a mature and often somber demeanor. You are serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. You advance in life rather slowly, through your own efforts and persistence. You are also rather stern and judgmental, especially with yourself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for you to really let go, to be spontaneous and playful. You like to be in control of yourself.
Although you take yourself and your responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of you that rebels against rules and restrictions and answering to outside authority. You can feel torn between conforming or fulfilling your obligations, and breaking free of them. Your wilder side will now be described.
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 infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission, and can be extremely driven, obsessed, and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it for good is definitely part of your path. You confront abusive power, tyranny, and dominating people who will teach you about power, and eventually force you to claim your own.
You always seem to find the right words to verbalize your feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. You also have a keen sense of beauty and probably appreciate art, music or poetry.
You are very thorough and take your time thinking things through. You enjoy games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. You also could find traveling very rewarding.
You have a great desire for freedom and independence and are subject to strong emotional tensions. You are very creative and forge ahead tirelessly. But you tend to make the highest demands on your physical energy and are prone to over-stimulate your nerves.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
You are more of a poet than a rational scientist, for your mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art, or poetry is natural to you, and you are also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating your thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for you at times and consequently you may appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of you as a child, and you probably daydreamed a good deal also. You are intuitive and are able to sense what others' thoughts and feelings are, even before they say anything to you. You often form an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and your impressions are usually correct. You can be somewhat absent-minded and you become so immersed in your own thoughts that you overlook things in your immediate, tangible environment. You are extremely open-minded and believe that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to you as anything in the concrete world. Your imagination and your sympathetic understanding of other people are two of your greatest gifts.
You enjoy puzzles and other games that challenge you intellectually. You like to show off your verbal or intellectual skills and to use your mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other display of your creative intelligence appeals to you.
Intellectually, you are very competitive, argumentative, sharp, and incisive. You start arguments and may stir up animosity with your impulsive and tactless speech. You always like to have the last word, and others often feel that you do not really or listen to what they are attempting to communicate. So, while you may win the battle (especially if it is a battle of wits), you may well lose the war. That is, your relationships in all arenas suffer tremendously from your aggressive ways of getting your point across and your inability to take in what others are saying. Learning techniques to calm your nervous system and relax your mind would be extremely beneficial for you.
You are mentally restless, intellectually thirsty, and immensely curious. You may study and travel widely in order to satisfy these urges and you're even happier if you share your journeys with companions. Your gifts lie in your capacity for learning about the beliefs of a broad spectrum of people, making long-distance connections, opening up channels of communication and understanding, bringing people together from foreign lands, promoting social and cultural exchange.
Even though you can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), you also have a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. With this combination, there are a number of possibilities: you could accurately articulate the images and fantasies you have, you could forcefully convince others of your own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or perhaps you swing from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, nonrational aspect of your thinking.
You are open and receptive to subjects which defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy, metaphysics, etc., and you could teach these subjects to others. Your mind is imaginative and inspired and you have an aptitude for art and creative writing.
You have an innate understanding of relationships and a positive attitude toward marriage, family and children. You may have young parents or possibly become a parent at a young age yourself. Conditions in your home are likely to be harmonious.
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
Emotional outbursts are frequent with you due to your fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness. You express yourself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what your true feelings are. However, you dislike showing any personal weaknesses or needs for support, comfort, and nurturing. You are often impatient with yourself and with others. You abhor emotional dependency and dislike "complainers".
You inspire others to take positive action in their lives by your own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and are attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous, and independent. You are rather bossy, but you do not like to be with people that you can boss around too much. You enjoy a good fight sometimes. Relationships built upon mutual respect and a good deal of emotional freedom are ideal for you.
You become very cross if you do not have enough vigorous physical activity. You will feel your best if you "do battle" on the tennis or racquetball court (or engage in some other competitive sport) frequently.
You have a sympathetic nature and instinctively reach out to people in need of help. You also have a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For you, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
You seem to float above reality and have a very intense imagination. You like to daydream and are apt to have many wishes and illusions that rarely have a chance to materialize. You are guided by your feelings and seem to live in a world of your own.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, you give very selflessly and devotedly to those you love and often allow others to become overly dependent upon you. More compassionate than passionate, you may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and you want to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
You are drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls -poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone you feel you can have a deep spiritual relationship with. You idealize love and have a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love can be.
You love romance and wish the honeymoon phase of your love affairs would last forever! You need dramatic romantic gestures and displays of affection from your partner, and you want to feel very, very special, like a King or Queen, to your beloved. You also have an artistic flair and enjoy creating art or beauty in some form.
Intimacy does not come easily to you and you may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to your emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in your early life, you do not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to take down all of your barriers and defenses. You may feel that you have few friends or people that really care about you. You need to learn to value and love yourself more and to express your appreciation for others more openly.
You tend to be a bit envious and are inclined to begrudge other people. Quite suspicious, you may misconceive the relationships or associations of others, and become dissatisfied yourself. You also could be subject to improper liaisons.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are a perfectionist and have high standards for your own work. You often feel that if you want something done right you must do it yourself, for others do not do as thorough a job as you do. Doing a task well is very important to you, and you may labor over minute details that others wouldn't bother with. You strive for accuracy, efficiency, and precision, and you become very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, you can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that you will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that your efforts simply won't be good enough. You are usually modest and realistic in assessing what you can accomplish and, if anything, you underestimate yourself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if you do apply yourself diligently in some area, you gradually gain self-confidence as you master skills and develop expertise.
You conserve your energy and pace yourself so that you do not waste or diffuse your efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit your opportunities. In short, you may not aim high enough and settle for too little in life.
You are a team player and work well in collaboration with others who share your goals, ideals, and intentions. You can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for you, and you could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
Your self-confidence and vitality are strong and you believe you can do just about anything you want to. You have an enterprising spirit, a good sense of timing, and the ability to sense what will succeed and what won't. You usually make fortunate decisions in work or business activities. You enjoy healthy competition and you have a rather playful, good-humored attitude toward it. You mostly compete with yourself to see how far you can go or how much you can accomplish. You like to keep stretching your limits.
Your competitive drive and big ambitions (commented upon earlier) are fueled upon by either strong spiritual idealism, or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what you can actually accomplish. Your energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very strong, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, you are a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. You have a quixotic, idealistic streak. You may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for your own personal achievement.
When you want something, you go after it with passionate zeal and are sometimes so driven by your desire that you lose all objectivity. You get so deeply involved in whatever you are pursuing that you become one-sided, even fanatical. Strong-willed and stubborn, you insist on having your way no matter the cost. You are fascinated with power. You often try to overpower anything or anyone you perceive as an obstacle, if not physically then by the force of your will. You can be ruthless and impersonal when it comes to achieving your ambitions and goals in life. You have enormous energy and are capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement. You can also become a compulsive workaholic.
You seem to lack determination and have a sense of inferiority. You tend to think negatively about yourself and are inclined to downgrade yourself. But you have strong self-control, accept hardship well and have the desire to overcome your difficulties.
Gaining your professional objectives or advancing in your career often requires considerable sacrifice on your part. Specifically, you often feel that you must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of yourself in order to succeed professionally, protect your reputation, or what have you -- and this is something you may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to you than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say you won't progress or succeed, only that you will do it on your own terms.
You have a strong desire to acquire wealth and may have the good fortune to live in affluent circumstances. Your pleasant and harmonious personality makes you very popular, and you probably will have a large circle of friends.

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 a very sociable person, and you need to reach out and communicate with many different people. You are interested in what others can teach you and are drawn to those with more knowledge or breadth of experience than yourself. You expect a high level of integrity and sincerity from others and you do not tolerate pettiness or hypocrisy in your close friends or marriage partner.
You also need freedom and want a partner who will support your need to keep learning and growing, who will not limit you or set too many boundaries. Your marriage is likely to be very satisfying and rich.
You are big dreamer, highly idealistic, and open to anything. You can be extremely impractical and gullible, and will believe anything is possible no matter how "far out" or impossible. You can be an escapist, forever looking for some Shangri-La. ("Somewhere Over The Rainbow" could be a favorite theme song of yours). You need to balance your dreamy idealism with temperance and practicality in order to succeed in life. You are also a very generous, giving soul and sometimes find it difficult to limit your charitable impulses.

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 tend to be shy, sensitive and stiff with your emotions and may have difficulty expressing your true feelings, even though your affection for someone is there. One of your parents may have been too strict and unloving, and so you may fear close relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which you instinctively and habitually revert to when under stress - a mostly unconscious process and one which you are apt to overdo because it is so familiar and thus easy for you. The direction you need to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
You need to take what you have learned (either through formal education or your own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it, express it in a way others can benefit from. Knowledge and understanding which does not enhance the quality of life for yourself and others in your world is of little real value. Putting your understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in your daily interactions with people, and in the multiple small choices you make everyday will enable you to really test your belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress you are apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Cultivate your ability to live in the present!
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular where you and another have merged emotionally, legally, or financially. You will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency on one another. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
You are a born leader and have the ability to persuade members of a group or association you belong to. You always promote the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings you may pursue.
You co-operate well with others and have the ability to give and receive stimulating suggestions. You are always receptive to new ideas and ready for spontaneous group efforts. You seem to have an instant recall of things and are likely to act just as quickly.
You consider the ability to think and speak convincingly as the most powerful instrument one can possess. You always strive for intellectual control in your environment and tend to dominate others. You have a strong desire to be the spokesman in your community.

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 are yielding, gentle, and impressionable. You tend to "melt" into your surroundings, and do not make a very powerful, vivid impression on others. Especially while young, you may not have a very clear sense of identity.
Sensitive and compassionate, you do not enjoy fighting and no matter what you profess, you are a pacifist at heart.
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.
Your attitude towards life tends to be fluctuating. You are torn between tradition and your upbringing on one hand and new modern concepts on the other. Because of your emotional anxiety and nervous tension, it is important that you learn to relax.
You are very lively and have the ability to enjoy every moment. Creative, inventive and colorful, you have a lot of ideas and would make a good public speaker with quick answers to any questions. You like change and are always ready to try something new.
You tend to occupy yourself with unusual or special problems and have the persistence and tenacity to follow through. But you are likely to brood over your destiny and may have had a difficult time developing your personality.

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.
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.
