Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Edna Ballard's generation. Of course, Edna may not share all of the characteristics of her generation, but she is greatly affected by the tone that is set by her 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 Edna'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 Edna's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in her age group; it highlights areas in which Ballard'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 Edna Ballard's Age Group
Edna Ballard 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 Ballard's 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 Ballard's 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 Edna Ballard's is far more emotional and personally sensitive than Ballard's 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.
Edna Ballard was also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by a very dynamic and competitive spirit. Ballard's age group has yielded many reformers and dynamic personalities who introduce fundamental changes in all walks of life, science, politics, etc. She is part of a dynamic wave of highly spirited, progressive thinkers. They have the opportunity to be instrumental in inspiring a great deal of reform, most of which will be positive and constructive.
The Ideals and Illusions of Edna Ballard's Age Group
Edna Ballard is part of a 14-year group of people that are very practical and down-to-earth in their religious philosophy and spiritual outlook. Her 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 Ballard's generation finds it difficult to understand how other age groups can erect buildings with so little aesthetic appeal.
Her 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 Ballard's generation is among the world's most beautiful.
The entire generation to which Edna Ballard belongs has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon Ballard or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek the depths.
What is New and Different in Edna Ballard's Age Group
Edna Ballard is part of a 7-year group of people who strive for greater equality in relationships.
