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" [...] Your considerable mental abilities combine with the gift of a rich imagination to produce a symbolic thinker, a philosopher, and a talented speculator. With this fruitful blend of talents, your clear and well-ordered assessments of life are supported by good hunches and [...] 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 have great confidence in the power of your own will to shape your future. 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 [...] [..] On the one hand, your fertile and restless mind and your craving for challenge and change reflect your inner identification with a kind of heroic character who battles with dragons, defeats villains and rescues damsels or princes in distress.

Your shadow-side is a good deal more dependent, confused and lost than you are; and it contains [...] A minor character [..] You possess great quantities of sheer unadulterated vitality, and serve as a vivid example to others of the importance and value of living out one's own desires and fantasies regardless of whether they fit into conventional ideas of proper behaviour. You spend considerable [...] 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 an independent, courageous and self-sufficient personality. Because you are also human, you need a partner who can relate to you even when you are not being a heroine, and who can offer you gentleness, tenderness and emotional support. Although you prefer others to see you as complete unto yourself, you are not, and you know it. You are drawn to men who are able to express their feelings, and who are not ashamed of needing others. Such a companion can be very good for you - provided you [...] [..] You are not afraid of experiencing emotions which others might consider unconventional, destructive or dark, although naturally you might not always choose to put these emotions in the shop window for your man to see. Because of this gift of deep compassion for the darker [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
