We can see, in Astrology, that children born in the same period (within a decade), have some general characteristics which in later years, will be shared, and will mark periods of historical changes, either towards civilizations expansion or decline.
Sometimes also “the uneventful-silent periods” in history, show a certain generational characteristic.
This is mostly due to the signs and aspects that the planets Neptune, Pluto and Uranus occupy in the birth charts. These planets are so slow in motion, that they are prominent in signing periods or cycles which will affect the collective trends. The identity, of an entire generation of youth,will be affected by particular credo, ideas, ideals and beliefs.
For instance if we take the generation of “baby-boomers”, those people born immediately after the war from 1946 until 1956, we find a generation with Uranus in late Gemini, Neptune in Libra and Pluto in Leo, we have a generation who are keen in new ideas, who are brilliant and intuitive,pioneering in science and literature, media, communications,etc.
The boomers sought, and continue to seek new ways to deal with the family, breaking with old standards and finding excitement on a more emotional level, very creative and, somehow, self-centered and exhibitionist. The children who created the 60s!
The children of today, for instance, those from 1996-2003, (with Uranus in Aquarius, Neptune in late Capricorn and Aquarius, Pluto in Sagittarius) will be very outgoing, exuberant, independent and always questioning conventionality, and will be reformers in philosophy, and able to break and broad old religions and dogmas.
From 2003 until 2010 this generation it is similar of the previous one, but more poetic, more morbid, very brilliant, and very artistic!
Children will be relate towards each others in a more compassionate way, and will be aware of humanity in general. They will express the dream of the present period: a new world where human rights are on the first line, where the good of the one must be the good of the many!
