Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Auguste Rodin's generation. Of course, Auguste 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 Auguste'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 Auguste's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Rodin'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 Auguste Rodin's Age Group
Auguste Rodin is part of a 30-year group of people who have the courage to dispense with routine customs and habits and explore new options. Auguste's generation is motivated by a deep sense of individuality, freedom, and independence. They are a group of freethinkers and individualists who do not tolerate oppressive authority, and sometimes resist even mild authoritarian pressures. A sense of individual freedom and self-determination runs very deep, and many of them stubbornly resist social customs, and become iconoclasts and outspoken critics of long-held beliefs. They do not balk at attacking sacred doctrines or institutions, and the world is certainly left a much-changed place by the time Rodin's generation reaches later life!
Rodin's generation has produced new concepts in government, society, science, and the arts. Only a handful of people in his generation will go down in history for proposing radically new ideas or inventing new methods, but everyone in his generation is caught by the fire of innovation and discovery.
Radical changes and new ideas are not easily implemented, and many of the ideas brought forth by Rodin's generation will be overlooked or will fail to find practical application for several decades. Other ideas, however, will be readily applied and utilized in practical ways.
Some of the concepts and perspectives offered by Rodin's age group are rather simplistic and one-sided, particularly in areas that involve many complex issues, such as political science, sociology, and psychology. Too often a member of Rodin's generation follows an ideology with fanatical fervor, failing to consider all sides of an issue and disregarding virtually all of the wisdom and understanding gained through history. Auguste Rodin's generation has a youthful, groundbreaking exuberance but tends to lack the wisdom and experience required to devise a comprehensive and adequate plan.
Some members of Rodin's generation will become spokespersons of the generation's desires and goals. Others, on the other hand, will try to avoid getting caught up in the fervor. The best approach is to "do your homework" and then forge ahead!
The Ideals and Illusions of Auguste Rodin's Age Group
Auguste Rodin is part of a 14-year group of people that are progressive and broad-minded in religious and spiritual matters. They are not a mystical bunch, but neither are they skeptical or cynical of mysticism. However, Auguste Rodin's age group does not generally adhere to a religious philosophy unless it appeals to his sense of logic and reason. The more ancient and intuitively based religions are of little interest to his age group, and religions undergo much "modernizing" during Rodin's lifetime.
His generation blurs the distinction between science and mysticism; scientific discoveries are made with a spirit of ever-growing awe and wonder. The dry, academic approach to science fades out during Rodin's generation.
Science fiction is also popular with Auguste Rodin's age group. Also popular are abstract artistic styles, which reflect Rodin's progressive imagination.
What is New and Different in Auguste Rodin's Age Group
Auguste Rodin is part of a 7-year group of people who are very creative in the arts, music, literature, and philosophy. His age group draws upon some new inspirations and has a talent for weaving many seemingly disparate styles into a new, refreshing fabric. Much of the creative inspiration of Rodin's period is very refined and sensitive, and some of the greatest artistic and literary works of Rodin's generation will receive full recognition only after many decades have passed. It is a group that is primarily concerned with the quality of their creative endeavor rather than its distribution and marketing.
