II. Your Psychological Type
This short chapter describes your typical or characteristic way of responding to situations in life.The rich array of individual attributes portrayed in your birth horoscope is set, as it is with everyone, against the backdrop of a certain temperament bias. We might call this bias your psychological "type". The world of human relationship means everything to you, and the feelings of others are primary on the scale of your values. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your need for warmth and closeness with others, and your need for privacy, space and the freedom to pursue your own interests - which often involve abstract concepts quite divorced from human reality. You have great compassion for the problems of others, and may often find yourself playing the role of the good mother or father [...] [..] Your deepest dilemma in life remains, however, the development of objectivity and a more impersonal perception of the world. This may show itself chiefly in your resistance to accepting the genuine limitations of other people. Because you are a romantic, you find it difficult [...] III. Character and Shadow
In this comprehensive chapter of the Psychological Horoscope Liz Greene provides valuable insights about your essential character traits.The interplay between the conscious and unconscious sides of you is a constantly shifting dance, changing at different stages of your life and altering according to the pressures and challenges which you encounter. The tension between the primary characters in your inner drama is the source of energy which provides your life with movement, purpose, conflict and growth. [..] Fatalistic philosophies are not for you; nor are those ideologies that transfer ultimate responsibility for one's life and one's destiny onto society, the state, or any other external agency. You are convinced that you possess the capacity to make your life into anything [...] [..] You are capable of considerable loyalty and enduring love, but you would prefer it if the loved one was not wholly aware of the depth of your feelings, for you have a horror of being controlled and manipulated through your own needs. You are not afraid of emotional confrontations, [...] Hidden traits In contrast to your intensely self-reliant and wilful nature, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This hidden side of you contains all those qualities which you have to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to retain a feeling [...] A minor character [..] You resent having your liberty curtailed by rules which have been designed by the herd for the herd. You are in love with your differentness, and have considerable contempt for those who live their lives like sheep trying to copy some image offered by media, advertising [...] IV. The Family Background
In the complete horoscope analysis, this chapter deals with your family myths as well as with your perception of your parents and their relationship.Although you are an individual, you have emerged from a family background. Thus you contain certain inner patterns, myths and attitudes toward life which you have acquired from the psychological soil of this background. V. Relationship Patterns
This chapter describes attitudes, needs and characteristic patterns in close one-to-one relationships.Both astrology and psychology teach us that nothing that occurs within a relationship is chance. Your birth horoscope describes what you are like inside, and therefore what kind of patterns, needs and compulsions you are likely to bring into your relationships with others. Because you love rescuing damsels in distress, you will naturally find one to rescue, sooner or later. And you do in fact need a gentler, less forceful and more emotionally forthcoming partner to complement your rather fierce pride and independence. You need to protect someone, and deserve a woman who will appreciate the rather heroic ways in which you show your love. But having rescued her, you need to be careful not to feel bewildered, abandoned and resentful if she shows increasing signs of [...] [..] But such defenses cannot alter the great importance your partner's love holds for you. It would be better if you could face your covert dependency, for it is not a negative thing. In fact you may need to let your partner know how important she is to you, because in your [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
The final chapter of the Psychological Horoscope Analysis contains insights into the potential for growth as shown in your birth chart.The following paragraphs provide some suggestions of ways in which conscious effort might make it possible for you to achieve greater harmony between the different components within yourself, and to strengthen that centre of the personality which psychology calls the ego, the "I".
