This somewhat reclusive age group of perfectionists and master craftsmen is close to nature and loves the countryside, natural remedies, and herbs but needs to be careful of antidepressants and smoking. They are known for their caring nature but tend to worry a lot and have many phobias and guilt feelings.
They tend to worry a lot and not only is it easy to make them feel guilty but they are great at making you feel guilty as well (mothers and grandmothers of this generation are always worrying and complaining). Some of the best music producers were also from this age group and their motto that best describes them is “don’t learn the tricks of the trade, learn the trade”! Interestingly, many of them were involved with fraud in money matters (Bernie Madoff) but contributed most of it to charities.
Their era really started with the stock market crash of Oct 1929 and the Great Depression and it also makes them very unselfish and sacrificing for their family and others. As many of them were born in poverty or went through a very trying time, they don’t have any ego and are often putting themselves down. You also find them naturally drawn to sadness and minor chords and blues.
Nursing started under this transit and they all have the spirit of a Florence Nightingale in them. They are also the true musicians and the Blues, Jazz and Gospel singing is the hallmark of this age generation. Ludwig van Beethoven was born with Neptune in Virgo and was very critical of others and quite reclusive and misunderstood. You find the same pattern in a lot of talented poets, songwriters, and musicians who have Neptune in Virgo.
It is easy for them to go into self-pity (many country singers), depression, and they tend to be rather lonely and reclusive Johnny Cash always wearing black is a perfect example).
Healthwise, they have to be careful of stress-related illnesses and bladder area and problems. Smoking, alcohol, and drugs were common for this age group and especially weed and home-grown marijuana.
The old black and white movies with jazz playing and a lot of smoke and drinking show the self-destructive aspect of this generation very well. However, it is more from a lack of caring for self than and feeling sorry for themselves rather than being self-destructive thought.
They tend to be very humble and exactly opposite to their previous generation which was quite dramatic and flamboyant and known for their love of parties. This age group doesn’t like too much makeup and prefers cotton to silk. Being near the countryside is very healing for them and gardening and agriculture is another very positive hobby for them.
