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". Your nature is a practical one, and you possess an excellent relationship to what we call the real world. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your realism and your need to express your imagination and find some inner meaning which might validate your efforts. You have the gift of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting energy on fantasies on how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams into actualities; [...] 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. Ancient Greek philosophy postulated that the human intellect was divine; and although you are no doubt too rational to attribute mystical origins and powers to the mind, reason is virtually a god to you.

You are perpetually aware that there is some purpose to your life - but its definition is always, somehow, just out of reach. You are not spiritual in the sense of being content to bask in a subjective experience [...] 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 need a partner who can gently pry you out of the suit of intellectual armour with which you habitually approach life. You are ordinarily an extremely restrained and reasonable personality, and are therefore attracted to women who can provide you with a feeling of emotional security and warmth as well as a glimpse of those more imaginative and intuitive worlds which you habitually dismiss as nonexistent. Such a relationship can work extremely well for you, since you can offer your partner the [...] [..] This may be difficult if you are already in a marriage or permanent relationship. But there are ways of making an established partnership an adventure as well - for example, by making sure that you create plenty of time and opportunity for travelling with your partner and [...] VI.
