Strawberry Fields comments on the astro-twin blog:
“I don’t think age has anything to do with having “much in common”. Marly agrees…
I heartily disagree. The baby-boomers (with Pluto in Leo) have something in common that the next generation with Pluto in Virgo do not. That’s a large group of people with a slice of life in common. As you narrow the group (as the birthdays are nearer each other) the slice of life the people share, grows.
Now in the case of astro-twins, or people born very close together… when two people have most their planets in common, they are going to have similar tastes (Venus) and ways of getting what they want (Mars). They’ll have similar ways of communicating (Mercury) and expressing their vital life energy (Sun).
Further, whatever aspects dominate one chart will dominate the other. The way you interact with one of the people will be similar (not the same) to the way you interact with the other because the contacts between your chart and theirs are the same.
The SF guy (Scorpio Moon) and the Salesmen (Aquarius Moon) both hunt me… and flare me up, piss me off, etc. (they activate my Mars). And there is another pair…
My life long friend, Leon is a Libra with a Scorpio Moon. I met him when I was dating his friend who was born a few days later than him the same year… Libra with an Aquarius Moon. And I have similar experience with both of them, that is, I find them both ultra-hip.
I think the reason people resist the idea people are similar like this is the same reason they reject astrology in general. It’s because they want to be recognized as individuals. They don’t want to feel as if a drawing on a piece of paper can describe them, however it can!
And this has nothing to do with how a person expresses their energy! As I have said many times, energy is NEUTRAL until directed. But the fact that astro-twins and others born close together (same year, same generation) have similar energy is absolutely undeniable. I mean, if this is not so, I may as well discard all these charts I have been looking at for 30+ years!
Do you notice similarities in people close in age?
