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". You possess the gift of a clear, strong and objective mind, and you are a lover of truth and integrity in all your dealings. You will always favour reason over chaos, and principles over personal reactions. But there is considerable conflict within you - a dilemma between your rational, detached spirit and your intense and sometimes overpowering feeling. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head -because it seems safer, more civilised, and more "decent" [...] [..] You need to be careful not to devalue the importance of your ordinary daily life and your body, for otherwise your flights into the rich world of fantasy and vision will become a defense against your great vulnerability in relationship. Your contempt for the banal and the [...] 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. [..] You are a sensitive and idealistic person who is not wholly comfortable within the limits and boundaries of material life; for, like Plato, you crave the Good, the True and the Beautiful - and if you are unable to find glimpses of your dream amidst the mundane circumstances [...] [..] Much of Platonic philosophy echoes your sentiments, even if you have never read it. Your senses serve your heart and imagination, and you find it difficult to experience physical pleasure with another person if the mystical dimension of what you call love is not included [...] Hidden traits [..] This inner enemy, because you turn your back on it within yourself, may appear to belong to others in the world outside - individuals who make life hard for you because of their physical demands, their lack of appreciation for finer values, and their coarseness or brutality, [...] A minor character [..] You will never settle into stagnant complacency dreaming of the glories of your youth, for you carry your youth whithin you and will be receptive to change and new ideas all your life. But you also have a tendency to leave behind those projects and people with which you [...] 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. You are drawn to those women who can help you to come down into the earth and into your own body, as well as into the responsibilities of practical life, because you tend to live in your head and in your imagination most of the time - the realm where you are most gifted and most at home. A relationship with an earthier and more practical partner can work very well for you, for you can offer such a woman a glimpse of a broader and higher reality, and can bring meaning and vision into her life. But you [...] 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".
