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 [...] [..] You carry a touch of the theatre with you even though you may never seek to pursue this as a vocation. Your deepest dilemma in life remains, however, the development of objectivity and a more impersonal perception of the world. This may show itself chiefly in your resistance [...] 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. [..] Because of your deeply sensual appreciation of life, you are more than likely to draw delight from the fruits of whatever you accomplish - the grass in the next pasture does not seem any better than what grows underfoot. Because of your natural pragmatism and respect for [...] [..] It is much more satisfying for you to savour your pleasures rather than hurtling through them as though life were a race-track. You rely on physical and emotional comfort rather than the abstract realm of the mind and the spirit for your fulfillment, and you are capable [...] Hidden traits [..] Thus the shadow-side of your personality is really a profound mystical longing for a higher reality which, because it might interfere with your earthier desires, you usually suppress as being naive and unrealistic. Yet all the cynicism in the world cannot erase what belongs [...] A minor character [..] You are blunt, direct and honest, and you do not try to hide behind elaborate social veneers and posturings to mask who you are and what you want. You have little patience with hypocrisy, and are not averse to directly challenging and, if necessary, offending those who [...] 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".
