Section 1: General Characteristics
You are a nurturer and a protector and are prone to what has
sometimes been referred to as the "Atlas Syndrome", carrying the
weight of the world on your shoulders. You take your
responsibilities to others very seriously and often take on more
than your share of their troubles as well. Though you appear
(and indeed often are) rather passive, you possess much quiet
inner strength and the ability to flow with, endure, and emerge
again and again from life's inevitable adversities. You are apt
to be surrounded by people who rely and depend upon you, and
though you derive much satisfaction from providing, giving, and
being needed, you can also let yourself be drained emotionally
and/or financially by taking care of other people and not caring
sufficiently for yourself.
You have a very strong need for security and are a
"safety-first" creature, disinclined to make sudden changes or
to take new directions which involve risk and unpredictability.
Any break from the past is very difficult for you, Jimmy, and
you need a great deal of support when trying to make even
healthy and positive changes in your life or habits. ("Habit" is
a key word for you; you're apt to be very attached to yours!)
You are very retentive. You hold on to (sometimes cling to)
the people, places, and ways which you are familiar with. You
also tend to both hold in and hold on to feelings, and you may
need to learn to express and let go of old feelings and past
Physically, you are apt to be hearty and substantial, with a
tendency to be stout. Unless other astrological factors indicate
otherwise, you can also be downright lazy, especially when it
comes to exercise. You instinctively choose comfort over
challenge. (This is true in a broader sense as well, not only
regarding physical exercise).
Your strengths include depth of feeling, patience, and
generosity. The qualities you need to cultivate include
initiative, openness to change and new experience, and a
stronger sense of self.
Like many Virgos, you are likely to be overly humble or
unsure of yourself and to look to others for inspiration,
motivation, reinforcement, and approval, and this trait is even
further emphasized due to the Fire Missing or Deficient element
of your chart. Tending to be somewhat passive, you must learn
how to take initiative and motivate yourself.
A lack of warmth (either physically, emotionally, or both)
may be evident in you, which can show itself physically as a low
energy level, paleness and lack of color in the skin, or a
tendency to be easily chilled, and emotionally as a marked
coolness or aloofness with little spiritedness, joyfulness, or
enthusiasm for living. Eating warming, spicy foods, living in a
warm, sunny place, and using fire in your daily life (lighting
candles, using a wood stove or fireplace for heat) can help
balance you. Also, spending time with warm, cheerful,
positive-minded people and developing a philosophy based on
spiritual optimism can stir up your own zest of life.
Positively, Jimmy, you are unlikely to be egocentric and
have a capacity for great patience and peacefulness.

Section 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,
Jimmy. 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
In relation to others, you are, like most Virgos, 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, Jimmy, 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 can get by in life almost by personality alone. There
is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about you that others
can't help responding to favorably, Jimmy. Usually you appear
confident and clear about who you are, and it's very difficult
not to notice you or feel your influence when you are around.
You have a big heart, are generous with your affections, and
you have a strong desire to take care of everyone around you. It
is easy for you to establish personal contacts and relationships
because of your ability to fully understand others.

Section 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you approach life instinctively and intuitively
(due to the Scorpio Ascendant and Virgo Sun aspect of your
chart, and as described in the previous chapter), Jimmy, you
also have a very analytical, rational, more typically Virgo
unemotional side as well, as discussed below. You may at times
feel conflicting urges: to live passionately and dangerously, or
to be conservative and play it safe.
At heart you are a modest and humble Virgo, and you rarely
strive to be in the limelight or in a position of power. You
have a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and you
prefer to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance.
Conscientious and conservative, you can be relied upon to be
careful, efficient, and thorough in your work and you take pride
in doing a job well. What you may lack in self-confidence you
often make up for in skill - developing expertise, technical
knowledge, and competency in some specialized area, Jimmy. Like
many Virgos, you are adept at using your hands to create or fix
things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful
craftsmanship are your forte. Some would say you are a little
TOO meticulous, for you can be extremely critical and petty if
everything is not done exactly as you think it should be, and
you worry about things that other people consider trivial and
unimportant. You like to organize, categorize, and arrange
everything into a logical system, and you are often distinctly
uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category.
Disorganization vexes you. You probably wish that you were not
such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details,
you can be mercilessly self-critical as well. Whether in your
environment or in yourself, you tend to focus on the flaws, with
a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. You are strictly
factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in your
self-estimation, and you often do not give yourself enough
praise or credit.
You are also highly discriminating and may be especially
particular about your diet, hygiene, and health habits. Like
most typical Virgos, you have high aesthetic standards and
refined sensitivities, and will be bothered by elements in your
surroundings (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that
others overlook. Your tastes are simple, understated, but
refined. Coarseness, bluntness, and vulgarity really offend you.
Like many Virgos, you can be difficult to live with sometimes
because of your fastidiousness, your sensitivity, and your
idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though you seem rather cool and self-contained, you have a
very helpful nature and you enjoy serving others. You are
content to be in a supportive, assisting role rather than in the
lead. You are quietly devoted to the ones you care for.
You are careful and cautious in your approach to life,
realistic, practical, and disinclined to gamble. You analyze
before you act. You are too serious sometimes, Jimmy. Allowing
yourself to play and to make mistakes would be HEALTHY for 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, Jimmy. 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
As a Virgo 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.
Like many Virgos, you seem to lack self-confidence and have
a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause,
Jimmy. You tend to withdraw and your outlook in general could be
a bit too negative. Beware of letting your emotional tension
react to your physical well-being.

Section 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
As a Virgo with Mercury in Libra in your chart, one of your
greatest assets is your ability to see both sides of an issue,
and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation.
Tactful, reasonable, and with considerable social finesse, you
work well with people in business as well as in personal
relationships. You are objective and somewhat detached from
emotional bias, and make an excellent consultant, mediator, or
public relations person. You insist upon fairness and seek to
bring harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people,
and your diplomacy is a benefit in any business or social
situation. You also have fine aesthetic Virgo sensitivities that
are enhanced by the Mercury in Libra aspect of your chart, and
could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
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.
Like most Virgos, you have an aptitude for solving difficult
mental problems due to your careful, methodical approach,
attention to detail, and tenacity in following a matter through
to its conclusion, and these characteristics are greatly
enhanced by the presence of the Mercury Square Sagittarius
aspect of your chart. You have good powers of concentration and
enjoy studying and thinking in solitude. You can get wrapped up
entirely in your own thoughts and completely engrossed in some
small detail. You are slow and cautious, Jimmy, but extremely
thorough in your work. Conservative and something of a skeptic,
you may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea which has no
concrete proof or scientific verification. You prefer dealing
with facts rather than abstract speculation. You may also be
distrustful or fearful of anything you cannot understand with
your rational mind. You are well-suited to work in research or
any field that requires careful study and thought.
You will notice that the description below contradicts some
of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. Above your
typical Virgo thinking is depicted as careful, conservative,
methodical, and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following
information characterizes your mind as quick and innovative.
Both are true! You incorporate both ways of thinking - the
inspired, inventive AND the deductive, ordered. Here is a
description of the more free-flowing aspect:
An independent and original thinker, you are excited by new
ideas, discoveries, and innovations. Your mind functions in an
intuitive, nonlinear fashion, and sudden insights and ideas
often come to you "out of the blue". You grasp ideas very
quickly and often become impatient with those who are slower or
more cautious than yourself. You are considered rather eccentric
and unusual in your interests by more conservative minds. You do
well in an open, unpredictable atmosphere where flexibility and
quick responses are needed. You have an aptitude for science,
mathematics, electronics, or astrology.
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 are a social and entertaining person and prefer to talk
about beauty, love and art when you are in conversation with
others. Courteous and polite, you are well-liked by everyone.
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.

Section 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Secretive and inclined to brooding silences, it is difficult
for others to really know your inner core, for you trust and
open yourself to very few. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable
and to relinquish control in relationships is not easy for you.
Because of the presence of the Scorpio Moon in your chart,
you have more intense, passionate loves and hates than most
Virgos and are a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a
fearsome foe. You have a nasty habit of holding on to past
hurts, resentments, and guilt - and to keep such feelings to
yourself. It is important for you to learn to forgive and let
go, Jimmy, as well as to express your feelings openly and
directly, rather than hiding or repressing them.
You are not content with superficial appearances and are
always probing beneath the surface of things for hidden motives.
You have a great deal of emotional depth.
Your own feelings and emotions are something of an enigma
to you, and it is often difficult for you to share with others
what you are feeling.
You frequently withdraw from contact with the world, and
need a healing, peaceful environment in order to blossom and
come out of yourself.
You identify with the oppressed, disenfranchised or
underdog in any situation and want to help them or care for them
in some way.
You genuinely appreciate and understand women, and are
likely to have many female friends, a network of women who love
and support you. It is relatively easy for you to attract
companionship and affection, and there will never be a lack of
either in your life. Children are very important to you also.
You are easygoing, agreeable, and tolerant, willing to
overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin again on a
positive note. You enjoy making others comfortable and happy,
and sometimes overdo your generosity. You often feel that
"everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", and so
become lazy and lackadaisical.
There is another side to you as well, a rather introverted,
self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers your good
cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Like many Virgos, you have an inner poise and balance that
enables you to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional
traumas and stress. You keep perspective and objectivity about
highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of
others who might wish that you would react more intensely. You
are quietly supportive and faithful to your friends and loved
Your mind is very impressionable and sometimes your
imagination could be a little misguided. You love to daydream
and to live in your own world of fantasies. But you are
receptive and have a sympathetic understanding of others.
You are subject to changing moods and tend to alternate
between associating with others and being completely alone,
seeking to regenerate yourself in solitude. Like many Virgos you
seem to be too critical of yourself and tend to generate
distance between yourself and others.
You respond to your environment in a highly emotional way
and encounters with other people can get you excited easily.
Your mood tends to change quickly, though, depending on the
response you receive from others.
You are quietly devoted and faithful to your loved ones,
Jimmy, and often become a kind of servant to your love partner.
You are more comfortable showing love for someone by doing
something for them, making something for them, or simply being
there for them -rather than telling them so in a romantic,
soul-stirring sort of way. You are timid about expressing too
much sentiment or emotion. You also underestimate your
attractiveness and lovability and doubt your own worthiness to
receive love and appreciation.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make you a
very happy Virgo, especially due to the presence of Venus in the
10th house in your chart. 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.
Money is apt to be an issue in your life, not because you do
not have it but because you can not or will not hold on to it.
You have a free-handed, generous, open attitude and would prefer
to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment
rather than save, discipline yourself, or budget. At your worst,
you want an easy ride, and friends will often let you freeload
because you are such an agreeable, friendly, pleasant sort. Or,
you could let other people take advantage of your hospitality
You also avoid confronting difficult issues in relationships
simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. You just
want to have a good time.
Your pleasure-loving nature and your emotional and material
generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain
caution or restraint in expressing your affection, and by a fear
of heartache. At times you are likely to be the jovial,
friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, Jimmy,
but at other times you are far more contained as described here.
Because you are upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not
suspect how sensitive you are to being left out or
In love and romance, it's important for you to be able to
deeply respect your partner. Like most Virgos, you look beyond
the superficial qualities to see their inner worth (or lack
thereof), before you let yourself really fall for someone. In
fact, too much glamour or flashiness is something of a turn-off
to you. You are capable of a mature, lasting loving relationship
and seek a mate who is deep, loyal, and committed. You may be
drawn to someone older than yourself.

Section 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You seesaw between being too pushy, confrontational, and
insistent on doing things your way, and being too eager to
please, without a clear, definite goal of your own. You strive
for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and
working cooperatively and interdependently with others. You may
feel frustrated at times that you cannot simply do what YOU want
to, that you must always accommodate the needs and desires of
others. Or you may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive
manner if you do not have the support and approval of other
people. Either way, you are not a loner. You achieve your goals
by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team
player. You are very concerned with the concept of fairness and
become quite indignant and vocal if you sense someone is being
taken advantage of, Jimmy. Like most Virgos, you avoid extremism
and favor a balanced, moderate approach to living. You are
unlikely to push yourself too hard or to become fanatically
driven to reach your goals.
You are likely to be known for your drive, energy,
ambition, and competitive spirit, Jimmy. A successful career
based on your ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel
in physical strength and prowess is likely. You most definitely
want to be a winner and will work hard to achieve that.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Jimmy, you are a
person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how
impractical or fantastic they seem. Due to the Mars Sextile
Neptune configuration of your chart, you have a quixotic,
idealistic streak that is uncommon in most Virgos. 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 have a strong tendency to flirt and seek excitement and
stimulation through your love relationships, Jimmy. You have the
ability to make yourself interesting to people you meet and some
of your contacts may have an unusual quality or may begin under
Eccentric, individualistic and very excitable for a Virgo,
you can create a stir wherever you go. If you are not careful,
you could often find yourself involved in quarrels or even
violent assaults. To avoid trouble, it would be wise for you to
learn to deal with others without anger.
You gain your objectives and ambitions in life through your
personal charm, attractiveness, ability to please others
visually and/or emotionally, Jimmy. 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 may not feel like you have to work very hard or strive
to achieve, either because you come from a very comfortable
background, or because inner contentment and satisfaction are
more important to you than outward accomplishment. You could be
quite successful in real estate, agriculture, or anything
Your profession is apt to be related to children, women,
consulting, nourishing, or to the use of your nurturing,
emotional, childlike qualities in appealing to the public in
some way. You do well in any business that involves responding
to people's emotional needs and tastes.

Section 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your ability to empathize and identify with others makes
you unwilling to take advantage of or hurt anyone. You care
about the underdog, Jimmy. You may also be unusually
impressionable or have highly developed psychic sensitivity.
You have a great love of learning and an eager, curious,
active mind which impels you to travel and see as much of the
world as possible. You read widely, and may excel academically.
You love being in a teacher-student relationship and may stay in
school for many years, prolonging your studies for as long as
possible! You also communicate well and would be an effective,
Public relations or any field involving communications and
sharing information also suits you very well.
Unlike many people born under the Virgo Sun sign because of
the Jupiter Square Neptune aspect of your chart, you have a need
to escape from the demands of everyday life, and reach out to
something bigger, more exotic, more exciting. Traveling is good
for you, Jimmy. You may also daydream, fantasize, or
philosophize a great deal.

Section 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.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague
you. You strongly resist changes and transitions rather than
greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which
makes them much harder for you.
On another level entirely, you are very careful about
joining forces, and especially your material resources, with
others. You want to keep your own and other people's property
and assets very distinct.
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.
It is easy for you to become distracted from your purpose by
the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options
available to you. You need to develop single mindedness and
focus, Jimmy. Until you direct your attention to some of the big
questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really
important to me and essential to my happiness?", you are apt to
dabble, to scatter your energies in many directions engaging in
activities which are entertaining but which are ultimately not
fruitful or nourishing.
Having an overall vision for your life and aligning your
daily activities so that they support rather than detract from
your larger purpose, is a significant step in your unfoldment.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues
is in your immediate, direct encounters with others. There is a
dynamic balance (or conflict) within you between acting
spontaneously and being true to yourself versus modifying
yourself or your behavior to suit others. You seesaw between
being inordinately concerned with self to being overly
conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or
opinions about you. Learning to act authentically and
forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is your task.
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
Become more aware of the spiritual side of life, the
underlying unity, by involving yourself in generous and
charitable activities, and by opening up your psychic channels.
Meditation practices that develop your intuitive abilities, and
learning about the unseen side of life through your own dream
experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important
steps in your path.
Also, like many Virgos, musical and artistic or imaginative
endeavors will be important to you.

Section 9: Originality and Imagination Areas Where You Are Creative,
Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You have unusual, even eccentric friends, Jimmy, 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 have a powerful sense of destiny and may be unusually,
even ruthlessly, ambitious, Jimmy. There is a very driven,
compulsive quality to the way you pursue your career or other
important life goals, which is likely to win you both staunch
admirers and vigorous opponents.
There is a very "radical" side to you, and you may want to
remake or change the world in some significant way. Depending on
other astrological factors in your chart and your own decisions,
you can be either very destructive or a powerful force for
healing and positive change in the world.
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 emotionally compulsive and uncompromising, and must
learn to handle your intolerance and fanaticism. Constantly
driven, you are always ready for a fight with somebody. A
certain inner conflict makes you irritable and ready to explode
at the slightest provocation.
You tend to fantasize about romantic situations and have a
strong longing for love. You may look for partners who put you
into a magical world of beautiful illusions and could end in
sudden disappointment when you find out that your loved one is
not what you fantasized.
You tend to be restless and impatient and have a strong
desire to bring your ideas to realization at all cost. At times
you could experience sudden confusion about your direction in
life and may question if you are on the right path.
Prone to wrong impressions and perceptions at times, you
don't always see the people in your environment in the right
light. Because of this, you probably will break some of your
relationships that were founded on lies and deceitfulness.
Unlike the more typical Virgo, you are highly excitable and
your romantic encounters are likely to be very intense, Jimmy.
Extravagant and hot-blooded, you are inclined to look for new
partners often. Your attachments are apt to be unconventional

Section 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group
In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits
of your generation, Jimmy. 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, Jimmy. In fact, the need for harmonious,
