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 basic nature is a realistic one, and your characteristic way of dealing with the situations life brings you is to meet them honestly and then to organise them until they are manageable. You possess sound practical abilities, and are gifted with a good "reality function"; and you have the knack of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting your energies in fantasising how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams [...] [..] But this attitude cannot cope effectively with your restlessness and need for meaning.

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 a naturally gregarious person, eager to blend with and belong to a larger human family; but you are intrigued by those men who can express their own individual vision with apparent confidence and a brazen disregard for public opinion. Such a relationship can be very good for you, since your understanding and need of people can help to provide a bridge for the deep loneliness of an eccentric and original spirit; and he in turn has much to offer you as an example of courage and the fact that [...] [..] In part, you love this kind of verbal love-game for its own sake, because it is stylish and graceful and makes love interesting; and in part you do it because you tend to protect your feelings with your intellect so that you are less vulnerable.
