Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Bill Watterson's generation. Of course, Bill 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 Bill'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 Bill's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Watterson'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 Bill Watterson's Age Group:
Bill Watterson is part of a 15-year group of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and a clear sense of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious drive to remedy all of the world's evils and create a world of perfect order. There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque. Oddly enough, this group is also often fascinated with these very things that are so unsavory, thereby creating a sense of hopelessness and despair about the world's condition.
These inner, conflicting emotions are reflected in the attitudes and life styles of Watterson's generation. Most people of Watterson's age group are conservative and ethical, and a small minority goes to the opposite extreme and relishes being strange or unusual in appearance, and sloppy or even grotesque in their demeanor. There seems to be no middle ground for Watterson's generation. Usually, the rebellious behavior surfaces during adolescence and subsides thereafter, and Watterson's age group tends to be very conservative in later life.
Bill Watterson's age group is not very good at compromising and tends to have strong ideas about what is right and what is wrong. There is a strong feeling that they must eliminate evil from the world. Fostering good deeds is certainly very commendable, but a categorical and simple-minded response to complex issues is not helpful. His age group will undergo tremendous fluctuations in their attitudes toward Good and Evil and will swing to great extremes. Bill's generation will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.
