Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Alan Alda's generation. Of course, Alan may not share all of the characteristics of his generation, but he is greatly affected by the tone that is set by his generation.
The first topic focuses on the subconscious and emotional drive of this age group. In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge - and even compulsion - of Alan's age group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface very forcefully, thereby leaving considerable upheaval and change in its wake. The second topic concerns the dreams, fantasies and spiritual aspirations of Alan's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Alda's age group tends to be innovative, inventive and unusual, as well as 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 Alan Alda's Age Group
Alan Alda is part of a 25-year group of people who have strong feelings for home and country. This is a sentimental group that feels deeply attached to family and country. They cling to the familiar, are distrustful and fearful of different cultures, and consequently a great deal of racial and ethnic prejudice is common among Alda's age group.
Their need for close relationships and togetherness runs very deep and causes them to bond closely to family members and old friends, and also makes them prone to mass movements and group activities since they cater to their largely subconscious need for acceptance and support. Unfortunately, Alda's age group is easily carried away by group frenzy and many of them often lack the integrity or courage to think and act in an independent and rational way.
Alan's generation is very emotional and tenderhearted. Many of Alda's group sacrificed a great deal to help their children or other family members, while other generations are unwilling to give as much as they have. Tender feelings and regard for the well-being of others can spur Alda's age group to make contributions towards feeding the hungry, caring for the neglected and supporting the needy, particularly children and mothers. It is a group of people with a loving heart and a helpful hand. Many of them have parents and/or children who are not nearly as supportive and helpful; many of their contributions are not completely appreciated and may even go unnoticed.
The Ideals and Illusions of Alan Alda's Age Group
Alan Alda is part of a 14-year group of people who are conservative and moderate in their spiritual aspirations. His age group tends to avoid speculation on metaphysical matters, and interest in psychic phenomena is considered very strange and weird by Alda's age group. They also have a strong sense of right and wrong and religious practices tend to highlight ethical and moral judgment. The conservative, straight-laced attitude of Alda's age group is frustrating to more imaginative types, who consequently rebelled against it.
What is New and Different in Alan Alda's Age Group
Alan Alda is part of a 7-year group of people who are very progressive in business and practical matters, and implement scientific ideas in practical ways to make life more comfortable. Home appliances, for example, were improved and marketed by Alda's age group to a much greater degree than was previously done.
Alan Alda's age group is also rather sensual and romantic, and is uninhibited in expressing romantic feelings. His age group rebelled against repressive attitudes towards sexuality, and promoted overt expressions of sexuality in movies, music, etc.
