Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Alan Arkin'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 Arkin'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 Arkin's Age Group
Alan Arkin 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 Arkin'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, Arkin'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 Arkin'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 Arkin'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.
Alan Arkin was also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. He is part of a group of people who can be explosive and even violent in their reactions to situations. They do not tolerate being restricted, and rebel with force and anger against oppression.
The Ideals and Illusions of Alan Arkin's Age Group
Alan Arkin 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 Arkin'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 Arkin's age group is frustrating to more imaginative types, who consequently rebelled against it.
What is New and Different in Alan Arkin's Age Group
Alan Arkin is part of a 7-year group of people who are highly independent, self-reliant, self-willed, and rebellious. It is a rowdy bunch and Arkin's generation broke many time-honored traditions and customs. His age group pioneered many new ideas that remained fashionable for many years; for example, rock 'n' roll was introduced by people of Arkin's age group.
