Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Bahá'u'lláh's generation. Of course, Bahá'u'lláh 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 Bahá'u'lláh'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 Bahá'u'lláh's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Mírzá Husayn-`Alí'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 Bahá'u'lláh's Age Group
Bahá'u'lláh is part of a 25-year group of people who are highly imaginative and intuitive. Bahá'u'lláh's age group has a deep, inner yearning for a more idyllic life, and their rich imagination dreams up many ways to attain these lofty goals. The yearning for a more perfect and beautiful world sometimes leads to feelings of frustration with the "real world". It is particularly difficult for those of Mírzá Husayn-`Alí's generation who experience difficult childhoods or lack the inner strength to adequately meet life's challenges; consequently, increased alcoholism and drug use can easily ensue.
Unique contributions to literature and music abound in his generation. Spiritual and religious aspirations are also common. Bahá'u'lláh's generation is driven by less tangible ideals than other generations. Spiritual aspirations, artistic inspirations, hopes and fantasies are the driving power behind Mírzá Husayn-`Alí's age group.
The Ideals and Illusions of Bahá'u'lláh's Age Group
Bahá'u'lláh is part of a 14-year group of people that are extremely idealistic and intuitive. Bahá'u'lláh's age group is very liberal and expansive in outlook, and consequently religious institutions become much more flexible and eclectic in their approach during Mírzá Husayn-`Alí's lifetime. Religions that do not adapt to the broad-minded attitude of Mírzá Husayn-`Alí's age group are simply unable to attract much interest or involvement.
Intense metaphysical musings are evident in Bahá'u'lláh's age group, and they share a very deep interest in all manner of psychic phenomena, UFO's, prophecies, etc. This interest will open many new doors and insights, but will also often lead to a great deal of fantasizing and speculation that is taken more seriously than it should be.
The entire generation to which Bahá'u'lláh belongs has tremendous interest in anything unusual and imaginative. His age group likes to look at itself as being "different". Wild fashions, styles, art, and music are brought forth by Mírzá Husayn-`Alí's age group. Serious problems like drug and alcohol abuse are likely among this age group and Bahá'u'lláh should strive to not be coaxed into unhealthy and destructive habits. Instead, Bahá'u'lláh should use his vivid imagination to discover new artistic and spiritual dimensions that are inspiring and constructive.
What is New and Different in Bahá'u'lláh's Age Group
Bahá'u'lláh 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. Space exploration takes on new dimensions as Mírzá Husayn-`Alí's age group pushes fervently to the next frontier. There is a buoyant and youthful optimism and enthusiasm in his group, and it has its share of great discoveries as well as pipe dreams and disillusionment. The discoveries and contributions, however, are many, and more than compensate for the failures.
