Dynamic Transits and the Generations
Although there will always be some debate over a topic as open to interpretation as generational studies, a general consensus has arisen that defines the 20th Century Baby Boom years as 1946-1964. For those of us who study astrology, however, the characteristics of the “Baby Boomers” and the constellation of historical correspondences we’ve come to associate with them, are better summed up in the phrase “Pluto in Leo.” This generation born 1937-1956, give or take a few retrograde periods, is virtually synonymous with post-war optimism, rock & roll, the flowering of the sexual revolution and Civil Rights movements, and the Atomic age. To find meaning and symbolic synchronicity in the timeline of the last century, we need look no further than the outer planets of our solar system. During this talk, we’ll be looking at four generations encompassing most of the adults alive today, from Pluto in Leo (1937-1956) through Pluto in Scorpio (1984-1995). We’ll examine the events, cultural forces and planetary configurations that shaped each generation, and we’ll explore the impact of Pluto’s current transit through Capricorn on members of those generations.
