Rising Sign is in 07 Degrees Aries

You are a free spirit and you must be first at everything you do. Very energetic, self-assertive and active, Poetry must be done your way. Even though you may feel calm and serene on the inside, you certainly do not act that way. You want to do everything full-tilt, 100 miles per hour! A great competitor, but a poor cooperator -- you must learn how to lose more gracefully. Very self-confident, ambitious and passionate, you radiate positive energy. You are blunt and direct, but at times unfeeling and sexist, especially if a woman offers you any resistance. You fight for your beliefs, but your tendency to act first and think later often causes you much grief.

Sun is in 00 Degrees Capricorn

Extremely serious and mature, you are capable of accepting responsibilities and do so willingly. Others expect you to be The Poet as a matter of course. You tend to get angry when Beatniks like Kerouac get rewards after not having worked anywhere near as hard as you. You are goal-oriented poet by nature -- you're a hard worker and are justifiably proud of the poetry and translations resulting from your literary efforts. You tend to have "tunnel-vision" -- this allows you to block out extraneous matters that might distract others and to concentrate totally on the matter at hand. As such, you are the ideal one to manage or administrate any ongoing Poetry Movement like The San Francisco Poetry Movement. You are not a fast worker, but you are quite thorough. You are known for being totally persistent, tenacious and tireless in reaching your literary and sexual goals.

Moon is in 13 Degrees Scorpio

Your feelings are very intense, never superficial. You tend to be either very angry or very sad or completely and totally happy. Your moods are deep, extreme and not always completely understood by yourself or by those with whom you have to deal. Emotionally, you tend to prefer to live at the cutting edge of Poetry, pushing your reactions to the ultimate extremes, even if the results are dangerous or upsetting. You are easily jealous and very suspicious -- you require a great deal of emotional reassurance. A good detective, you are very curious about deep and mysterious things, especially human nature and motivations. Be careful not to be ruthless, tactless or too overly frank or you will meet with much resistance from others.

Mercury is in 15 Degrees Sagittarius

Your mind is very curious and inquisitive, always pushing Poetics toward a wide variety of mystical-social topics. The broader the subject matter (philosophy, science, religion, metaphysics), the more it will appeal to you. You prefer to deal with Anarchist Poetics -- the IWW historical Movement adds importance associated with any subject that slips into your grasp. You are known for being blunt, poetic and pouty.

Venus is in 17 Degrees Sagittarius

You are very aware of the need to maintain a high sense of morality in a relationship. Your loyalty and interest will remain constant in any relationship (either friendly, personal or business) that is based on fairness, honesty and justice. But you will become greatly hurt and disappointed if the other person takes any but the high road with you. Also, you tend to be overly emotionally possessive of lovers. You are known for your cynical, outspoken manner.

Mars is in 26 Degrees Aquarius

Your ideas and opinions are usually inventive and original, but sometimes they are merely eccentric and offbeat. You are altruistic -- you will work hard for the attainment of group goals, as long as they meet your high standards. You tend to resent traditional authority figures because you think that their ideas have only one thing in mind—to kill all the young men with war and Moloch. Very idealistic, you are a rebel WITH a cause!

Jupiter is in 27 Degrees Taurus

Growth only occurs for you after you have found a stable lifestyle and a dependable, protective and secure environment. You are at your best when those around you provide you with a great deal of affection and support. When you feel insecure or threatened, you tend to become possessive and grasping and self-indulgent. You are an inveterate book collector with an expensive preference for all the good Literature that Culture has to offer.

Saturn is in 28 Degrees Aquarius

Your personal sense of values is a reflection of the value structures of your peer group and of those you respect and admire. Try to be more critical in your acceptance of these values -- you tend to prejudge the abilities of those you trust and then follow what they say blindly. Basically very conservative, you prefer orderly, systematic changes and fear doing things rashly or impulsively. Ideas and philosophies must have some sort of immediately realizable, utilitarian function in order for you to pay any attention to them.

Uranus is in 04 Degrees Capricorn

You, and your peer group as well, seek out practical solutions to a changing society's attitudes to customs, traditions and authority structures. Your logical and orderly manner of dealing with these matters will result in permanent and carefully planned, but sweeping, reforms.

Neptune is in 09 Degrees Cancer

You, and your entire generation, tend to over-idealize the Muse, the past and other traditional values. This fosters isolationism and protectionism in the literary sense. One's zeal to bring one's own racial or cultural heritage to the forefront may become subject to the same excesses as those of the ultra-nationalist movements of the 1920's through the 1940's, unless the rights of individuals and dissidents are fiercely protected as well.

Pluto is in 21 Degrees Gemini

For your entire generation, this is a period of far-reaching and profound breakthroughs in the ability of people to speak, sing and write poetry for each other. During one such period, in the middle of the Twentieth Century, the appearance of small paperback books like Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and poetry readings by the Beatniks ushered in the first of many San Francisco Literary Renaissances to change the world.
