Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Emma Borden's generation. Of course, Emma 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 Emma'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 Emma's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in her age group; it highlights areas in which Borden'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 Emma Borden's Age Group:
Emma Borden is part of a 30-year group of people who have the courage to dispense with routine customs and habits and explore new options. Emma'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 Borden's generation reaches later life!
Borden's generation has produced new concepts in government, society, science, and the arts. Only a handful of people in her generation will go down in history for proposing radically new ideas or inventing new methods, but everyone in her 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 Borden'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 Borden'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 Borden'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. Emma Borden'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 Borden'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!
Emma Borden was also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. She is part of a group of people who can be explosive and even violent in their reactions to situations. This group does not tolerate being restricted, and rebels with force and anger against oppression.

All manner of religions and psychic investigations flourish as well. There is a great interest in ultimate questions and answers as well as in phenomena that do not seem explicable by science alone. Mysticism is on the rise in Emma Borden's age group. The spiritual qualities of compassion and sacrifice are also highly valued and more openly honored and respected than by other age groups. Spiritual and emotional sensitivity is so highly developed that it leads to escapism through alcohol and drugs, which is likely to increase during Borden's generation.
