Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Ansel Adams' generation. Of course, Ansel 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 Ansel'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 Ansel's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Adams' 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 Ansel Adams' Age Group
Ansel Adams is part of a 30-year group of people with a carefree attitude towards life. Their subconscious and emotional needs are not as great or as complex as those of other generations. They approach life in a more easygoing manner. They know how to have a good time and they do not take life as seriously as other generations do.
This is a curious and inquisitive bunch that loves puzzles and word games. Some members of Adams' generation will follow these interests in great depth, and make spectacular breakthroughs in the areas of languages, mathematics and logic.
Their breakthroughs also highlight the importance of educational skills and their benefits, and Adams' generation is highly motivated to improve educational standards and academic skills. A tremendous push is given to ensure literacy for all, foster adequate verbal and mathematical skills, and slow down the high school dropout rate. Needless to say, these are noble goals that all generations support, but this generation puts a much greater emphasis on these issues than other age groups do.
The generation following Ansel Adams' is far more emotional and personally sensitive than Adams' group. Consequently, many of them are oblivious to the emotional support and tender nurturing that these children (who are likely to be members of this next generation) require.
Enforced change, inevitable and profound transformations in the political and social world, as well as extreme disruption of the old ways are themes in Ansel's generation. Living through times of intense turbulence and profound change has shaped those in his age group.
The Ideals and Illusions of Ansel Adams' Age Group

Ansel Adams' age group has a great interest in poetry and fiction; some of the world's most creative and imaginative poets and writers are members of Adams' generation. Ansel Adams' age group has a keen curiosity about psychic phenomena, astrology, and other metaphysical sciences. Ansel's generation also takes a rather intellectual, non-emotional attitude towards religion, and is quick to detect logical flaws in religious doctrines.
What is New and Different in Ansel Adams' Age Group
Ansel Adams is part of a 7-year group of people who are extremely enterprising and progressive. They are optimists and explorers. His age group shoots for the stars, figuratively and literally.

The discoveries and contributions, however, are many, and more than compensate for the failures.
