Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Sam Mendes' generation. Of course, Sam 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 Sam'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 Sam's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Mendes' 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 Sam Mendes' Age Group:
Sam Mendes 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 Mendes' generation. Most people of Mendes' 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 Mendes' generation. Usually, the rebellious behavior surfaces during adolescence and subsides thereafter, and Mendes' age group tends to be very conservative in later life.
Sam Mendes' 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. Sam's generation will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.
Sam Mendes was also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. He 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.
The Ideals and Illusions of Sam Mendes' Age Group:
Sam Mendes is part of a 14-year group of people that have very intense psychic sensitivity and imagination. Sam Mendes' age group is very attracted to the strange, the bizarre and the unusual. Their affinity for things macabre is reflected in much of the music, art, and fashions of Mendes' age group. Novels and movies with mystery and chilling suspense are also popular with Sam Mendes' age group. Emotional depression, drug use, and suicide are likely to be relatively high in Sam Mendes' age group. There is also a deep mystical sense, and Eastern religions and meditation are very attractive to his age group.
The entire generation to which Sam Mendes belongs has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon Mendes or precipitated by unavoidable events, but rather will come from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek out depth.
What is New and Different in Sam Mendes' Age Group:
Sam Mendes is part of a 7-year group of people who employ their skills and creativity to promote a great deal of practical reform in education, medical care, and other social services. Their innovations are not radical or unusual, but they are usually effective.
Sam's generation also boasts a curious mixture of both conservative, ethical people, and rebellious, disruptive people. There seems to be little middle ground for Mendes' age group, and he swings from one extreme to the other. The conservative people strive to reinstate strict moral standards, want to swiftly punish criminal behavior, and strive to highlight the importance of old-fashioned values in our lives, laws, and overall life style. On the other hand, the rebellious people of Mendes' generation are angry at the established way of doing things and act in a defiant, crude, and coarse manner.
