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 respond to life's challenges with a clear, strong and objective mind, which serves you as a good and reliable friend and which provides you with powerful ethical precepts, uncluttered vision and a love of truth. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head most of the time - with all the virtues and problems that this high and noble domicile includes. "Living in the head" does not necessarily make you an intellectual or a good academic student, although [...] [..] You are a practical idealist, and are therefore powerful and effective in inaugurating new methods and procedures. You might do well in fields such as research, computer programming, sociology and medicine, and other spheres of life where your grasp of main principles combines [...] 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 know that nothing in life is free, and have learned the lesson of putting into things what you hope to get out of them; and you are not surprised when life turns out to be unfair sometimes and you are cheated of your deserved rewards, for that is simply how it is. You [...] [..] It is not that you lack compassion for people, for you have a great deal; and you also have the patience and realism to let people be what they are in their own time. Thus you have much to offer as a parent and a friend, for you never expect more from people than they can [...] Hidden traits [..] Your hidden side sees people very differently from your usual incisive perception; for this secret romantic infuses them with all the gossamer trappings of fairy tales and the sagas of courtly love. In direct proportion to your lack of expectations from people, this side [...] A minor character Although you are no doubt too rational to attribute mystical origins and powers to the mind, reason is virtually a god to you. You tend to think in clear, well-organised patterns, and possess the ability to view any situation from a detached perspective and dissect it [...] 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. In the process of making peace with the harsh limits of reality, you have had to sacrifice many of your dreams - particularly your dreams of romantic love. Yet you are magnetically drawn to those men who can somehow help you to restore your faith in life - men who are themselves incurable romantics and who will never compromise their ideals in the ways that you have. Your realism gives you great strength and self-sufficiency; yet you have paid a price for it in the loss of your inner child with [...] [..] You are ordinarily rather serious and realistic in love, disliking the more abandoned, irresponsible and promiscuous aspects of it; for you place considerable value on deep and honest emotional exchange and are also rather mistrustful of the instant love-at-first-sight impulse [...] 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".
