“I had expected that technology would be core to the identity of the cohort I call Generation K—young people aged 13 to 20 years old, born between 1995 and 2002, ” writes Professor Noreena Hertz in The New York Times. 

You’d be right, Prof, because you’ve chosen the exact years that the planet of hi-tech Uranus was transiting his own sign, Aquarius, the sign of the geek (or wizard). Basically, that creates a whole generation with a powerful dash of Aquarius in their collective character. Of course, for every individual this works out differently, depending on how Uranus interacts with the other planets.

Professor Hertz is just publishing a survey of American and British girls from Generation K. In her piece in the Times, she pretty much describes the characteristics you’d expect of the Uranus in Aquarius generation.

Uranus in Aquarius

April – June 1995

December 1995 – March 2003

September 2003 – December 2003

Uranus in Aquarius is not just about technology.

As many as 30 percent of teenage girls either don’t want to get married or are unsure if they want to get married. Even more strikingly, 35 percent are either unsure if they want to have children or definitely don’t. This is a seismic difference compared to older millennials.”

Yes, that would the Aquarian saying I’d rather be single than settle.

And here’s that Aquarian sense of community.

“…this generation’s amplified experiences of injustice are leading them to have a much more pronounced sense of community.”

and fairness

“But equality for this generation is not about conformity.” 

And finally, if there’s one word any Aquarian would choose to describe themselves?

“When I asked the young women I surveyed to describe themselves in one word, “unique” was the word they most commonly chose.”

Oh and in case you were wondering. Generation K is named after Katniss Everdeen, the brave, independent, resourceful, revolutionary heroine of The Hunger Games, portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence. Lawrence is too old to be a K kid herself, but she does have Aquarius Rising with the North Node. And Katniss Everdeen is every inch a Uranus in Aquarius girl.

  1. Fascinating article, Christina, and bang on target. My daughter was a millennial baby (year 2000) and with a Moon/Uranus conjunction in Aquarius she already has strong views on marriage/children/independence. This is of course the ‘selfie’ generation too which has escalated now Uranus (technology) has moved into Aries (me, me, me). It will be interesting to see where they go from her. [n.b. my daughter’s Moon – the Moon is the ‘mother’ in astrology and her mother (me) is an astrologer – a very Aquarian activity.]

      I really like the sound of these kids. One thing that I thought was misconceived about the research though is that “normal” teenage concerns used to be boys and hair. Teenagers have always had much bigger ideas than they’re given credit for.

      & the cohort that follows this one has the mutual reception between Neptune in Aquarius and Uranus in Pisces.

    This is an interesting generation, indeed. My Sagittarius daughter (born 1999) is certainly quite different from the old “boys and hair” stereotype. She has Mars/Neptune/Uranus/South Node all clustered together in the third house; unsurprisingly, she is fascinated by coding. Since no school in our area offers courses in it at the level she desires, she signed up for courses online. She is dismissive of Facebook and much social media (maybe because of her 12th house Scorpio Moon) and cautions me as I surf the web, “Everything you click on gives someone trying to sell you stuff information about you.”
