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 are one of the world's true romantics, for your intensely active imagination must always inject into ordinary circumstances an aura of meaning, potential and purpose without which you find daily life inconsequential and sometimes suffocating. The great strength of your nature lies in your well-developed relationship to the creative power of the unconscious, which allows you to look into the future and envisage potentials which are not immediately apparent in the present. Because of this, you [...] [..] Your deepest challenge in life, however, still remains the problem of earthing your vision and sense of human potential within the confines of material reality; and here your dependency upon human contact may make it even more difficult for you to cope with the restrictions [...] 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 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 [...] [..] You thus have considerable compassion for the inner torments of others because you know your own so well, and have found a way to come to terms with them. People do not shock you, whatever their story, and you might make a fine counselor or psychotherapist because you can [...] Hidden traits In contrast to your realistic view of life and people, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama; and this hidden side of you contains all those hopes, aspirations and fantasies which are excluded from your conscious personality because you are so determined [...] A minor character [..] You find it hard to be patient and understanding with those apparently hapless souls who appear to be the victims of unfortunate circumstances. For you, there is no such thing as a blameless victim, because, as the poet William Ernest Henley once wrote: "I am the master [...] 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 [...] 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".
