Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Carl Jung's generation. Of course, Carl 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 Carl'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 Carl's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Jung'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 Carl Jung's Age Group
Carl Jung 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, Jung'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.
Carl'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 Carl Jung's age group.
There is also a strong sensual craving in Carl Jung'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 Jung'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.
The Ideals and Illusions of Carl Jung's Age Group
Carl Jung is part of a 14-year group of people that are very practical and down-to-earth in their religious philosophy and spiritual outlook. His age group incorporates its ideals and visions into everyday life, and invests more time and energy than other generations in beautification projects, developing parks and recreation areas, and preserving beautiful or unique natural wildlife areas. Building construction is also done with careful attention to aesthetic quality, and Jung's generation finds it difficult to understand how other age groups can erect buildings with so little aesthetic appeal.
His age group does not speculate a great deal about spiritual and metaphysical matters. They are more involved in utilizing their imagination and intuition in practical, artistic ways rather than exploring metaphysical issues. Some of the art and music of Jung's generation is among the world's most beautiful.
What is New and Different in Carl Jung's Age Group
Carl Jung is part of a 7-year group of people who are unusually self-willed, proud, and egotistical. It is a group that defies authority and insists on having its own way. Parents and schoolteachers found that it was extremely difficult to discipline Jung's age group. Governments that are repressive to individual expression and freedom meet a great deal of resistance from Jung's age group, and he tends to rise up against any form of tyranny and oppressive rule.
