It was the culture of 1963 to which John Lennon was referring when he described Americans prior to the arrival of the Beatles as "walking around in f*ckin' Bermuda shorts, with Boston crew cuts and stuff in [their] teeth." Broad though that generalization might have been, it has the unmistakable ring of popstrological truth. With the civil rights movement in full swing, and the American advisory mission in Vietnam poised to expand, 1963 might be viewed in sociopolitical terms as a pot about to boil. In popstrological terms, however, the year of your birth was more like a groovy weenie roast at a carefree beach party. But just because the likes of Jimmy Gilmer went on about their business in blissful ignorance of their impending extinction, that doesn’t mean that the Jimmy Gilmer generation will someday do the same. No, popstrology predicts that the children of 1963 will be a savvier bunch than the stars who ruled the universe of pop at the time of their birth. Joyful and high-spirited? Sometimes. Naïve and doomed? Never.
