Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Alfred Adler's generation. Of course, Alfred 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 Alfred'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 Alfred's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Adler'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 Alfred Adler's Age Group
Alfred Adler is part of a 30-year group of people who are highly motivated by practical concerns. There is a very strong psychological need to feel that there is a firm foundation and a solid basis for one's life. There is an irresistible urge to make sure that the basics are taken care of and everything is built on a solid foundation. Consequently, Adler's generation works hard to improve the economy, ensure adequate food supplies, maintain and build roads and buildings, increase productivity, and develop other facilities that are essential foundations for a healthy, thriving economy.
There is a strong tendency to measure the value of something by its utilitarian value. For example, in education and research the emphasis is on ideas of practical value and there is little support for more purely theoretical research.
Alfred's generation is pragmatic and productive, and is driven by a need to build and improve tangible things. This concern with practical affairs often becomes unbalanced, and a rampant materialism with little regard for humanitarian, ethical, and spiritual values often develops in Alfred Adler's age group.
There is also a strong sensual craving in Alfred Adler's age group, and a great deal of emphasis is placed on physically comfortable surroundings and good food. Romance is particularly important to this age group, and great emphasis is also placed on the physical attractiveness of the opposite sex.
A small minority of members of Adler's age group are likely to be uncomfortable with the practical and materialistic atmosphere of the times, and consequently become alienated and antagonistic towards social norms.
Alfred Adler belongs to a group of people who will be the positive reformers and innovators in society. Peaceful methods and new techniques which do not create too much disruption, but which bring about fundamental and profound changes in society, will be his contribution.
The Ideals and Illusions of Alfred Adler's Age Group
Alfred Adler is part of a 14-year group of people that pursue religious and spiritual matters in an independent and individualistic way. Church doctrine and dogma are attacked by Adler's generation, and virtually every organized religion undergoes some major philosophical changes. Alfred's generation also questions other long-standing social ideals and seeks alternative ideals, hopes and aspirations. His age group also introduces radically new concepts and styles in art, music, and literature. Avant-garde tastes are fashionable with Alfred Adler's age group and the classical gives way to a fresh, new style.
Alfred Adler was also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by an unusually high degree of imagination and sensitivity. He is part of a group of people who are very inspired yet also unstable. The bizarre and the unusual are standard fare among Adler's age group. Alfred's generation also inspires intense political movements that are often fanatical or unreasonable in their goals.
What is New and Different in Alfred Adler's Age Group
Alfred Adler is part of a 7-year group of people who have a strong need to feel unrestrained by family ties and personal heritage. His age group tends to find personal relationships very restrictive, and to feel alienated and distant from family ties and concerns. Forming long-term personal relationships is difficult for Alfred's age group, and divorce rates are high in his group. However, it is also an emotional and sensitive group, and this instability is painful at times. Finding personal freedom and closeness with others at the same time is a major challenge for Alfred.
