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 life's true romantics, because your reality is the inner world of fantasy and imagination. The limitations of daily life can bore you, and you try at every available opportunity to inject into mundane situations a note of the mythic and the meaningful. However, your romanticism is constantly being challenged by another side of your personality: your fear of disruption to your material security. Although you dislike being tied to routines which seem inconsequential and stifling, [...] [..] Your grasp of the potentials of a situation combines with sensitivity and compassion for the needs and problems of others, and this lends a human touch to the strange and often uncanny abilities of your intuition.

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.

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 [...] [..] Because of this gift of deep compassion for the darker aspects of love, you can be truly understanding and containing of your partner's complexity; and even when you have been deeply hurt or are very angry, you still retain a secret sympathy for the things which drove him [...] VI.
