The kids have changed

The 90s babies I used to teach had this astrological signature that made them "easy" - with Uranus-Neptune in Capricorn, they respect tradition and order and are likely to love teachers and tradition as a result.  This group was born in the late eighties to mid-nineties and I stopped working at the university in 2016.

Those two planets - Uranus and Neptune - shifted from Capricorn into Aquarius around 1997, signifying that those born in this new influence will collectively or on average be a source of bafflement to me: you can expect them to not want to be painted into straight lines and to not care for any kind of regime at all, to not want to be understood, controlled, refined or contained.

So I won't be teaching for a while.  Really.  There seems to be no point.
