Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of John Keats' generation. Of course, John 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 John'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 John's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Keats' 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.

Businesses, organizations, and companies grow to enormous proportions, and much advancement in science is made possible by this huge cooperative effort. Some governments and their political borders expand, and some people become wary of the increasing power of companies, industries, and governments. Clashes in political ideologies are critical during the life of Keats' age group, and unfortunately, as we know from history, there can be considerable damage and harm arising from a clash of large organizations or governments. This is rather ironic where Keats' age group is concerned since these larger social structures stem from the group's deeply felt, largely subconscious, need to cooperate and bring people together.
