Lately, due to the loss of certain “generational icons” & this article re the so-called Jones Generation (apparently sandwiched between the Boomers and the Xers) there has been a bit of chat re generations.
Astrologically, there is really no such thing as the Jones Generation – one tends to think in terms of Pluto generations & you could break those up into sub-groupings of their Uranus sign. The outer planets – Uranus, Neptune & Pluto – linger in one sign long enough to add their style to whole generations.
For instance, you have the Pluto in Leo generation (see pic above for one of their icons – still doing fabulously well), born between 1939 & 1957. The start & end years are blurry as Pluto hops back and forth between Leo & Virgo. But that is essentially Pluto in Leo. Then there is the Pluto in Virgo generation from 1957 to 1970 & Pluto in Libra from then till 1984…When we got Pluto in Scorpio until 1995.
I always think of the Boomers as classically Pluto-Leonic, right down to their rebellion involving sex, hair & music. Thoughts? And do you identify with your generation?
