Your ability to think
things through clearly, and to analyze and understand the
smallest details of any plan, is highly developed. You have a
modest nature and are more concerned with the success of your
project or work than with personal aggrandizement. You enjoy
working and are happiest when you are being productive and using
your time efficiently.
Saturn in Virgo:
You have a penchant
for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to
detail. You are often hypercritical and can be such a demanding
perfectionist that you discourage yourself or others from even
attempting something that won't be done exactly the way you know
it should be done.
You frequently over
analyze or pick things apart mentally. You may be something of a
hypochondriac also. You must learn that you do not have to

and also to relax your unnecessarily high or strict standards.

well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes.
Your timing is usually good.
Uranus in Scorpio:
You are part of a 7
year group of people who break up all manner of taboos regarding

groups and promiscuity is not uncommon.
You love emotional
intensity, and there are many extremists and fanatics in your
Neptune in Sagittarius:
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.
Neptune Sextile Pluto:

to which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual
rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon you or

year group of people who are deeply interested in personal
relationships. Your age group has a deeply-rooted yearning to

willingness to hear the other person's side of the story and a
readiness to compromise and arbitrate different points of view.

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.
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

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.
