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 [...] [..] What "other people" think is entirely too important to you, and you will need to learn to risk expressing your own highly original ideas and viewpoints - even if these are apparently "odd" in conventional terms - if you are to ever feel truly independent and capable of coping [...] 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. [..] Reality for you consists of what you can see, touch, smell, taste, hear, and put in the bank; and although you love physical beauty wherever you find it - in a person, a work of art, or in nature - you do not become distressed by visions of unattainable perfection or aspirations [...] [..] You never forget betrayal, although with time and effort you might just manage to forgive it. You have enormous pride, in the best and worst senses, and a touchy sensitivity about your image in the eyes of others; for you are not a flexible person, and you act with slow [...] Hidden traits [..] This shadow-side of you focuses its eyes not on the earth, but rather, on heaven; and if you remain unconscious of it, it can gnaw away at you in the form of an overdeveloped Old Testament conscience which denigrates your preoccupation with your own pleasures and your devotion [...] A minor character [..] You deal with the ordinary fears which plague so many people, and which drive them to erect elaborate defensive structures against injury, by staring your fears in the face and putting yourself in precisely the position you are so afraid of; and the fears have a tendency [...] 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. The women who draw your powerfully physical personality are somehow more ethereal than you, and seem to personify some mystical or poetic realm which you fear entering yet which nevertheless fascinates you. A relationship with such a woman can be very creative for you, since a more imaginative partner can help you to trust your own inner vision and spirit and to treat these invisible things with value; and you in turn can offer containment and a bridge to practical life. But you need to be careful [...] [..] There is a rather sacrificial quality about your love, which makes you attracted to women who seem somehow victimised by life, or who appear to be denizens of a more spiritual world. You need to make more room in your personal life for magic and mystery, and also for greater [...] 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".
