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". Other people are the most important thing in the world to you, and you tend to live your life for and through them. Your gifts are those of the heart. You have great empathy for people's unhappiness, and may often find yourself playing the role of good father to those friends and loved ones who need an understanding and nonjudgmental shoulder to cry on. You adore feeling needed, and dislike hurting others; and you are capable of immense loyalty and devotion to those who are close to you. Your [...] [..] You should probably work in an artistic field where these abilities have their fullest expression, or where you are able to at least enjoy them vicariously through assisting in the creative development of others. You might make a talented designer or novelist, or could [...] 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 are not inclined toward cold ambition, or the need to be somebody in the world's eyes. For this reason you function at your best when working in a cooperative capacity - linking people together and smoothing over dilemmas, supervising group networks and activities, [...] [..] Your response to the sadness and pathos of life is sometimes too great, and you may forget too easily the pleasure and fun of independent existence; but for you this kind of independence is no fun at all, because it feels cold and forlorn. You recoil from selfishness, or [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those qualities which are really part of you but which you have excluded or suppressed from your conscious values and behaviour in order to preserve the relationships and the kind self-image which are so important to you. Your shadow-side [...] A minor character [..] Even those closest to you - lovers, partners, parents, children, enduring friends - often do not know many facets of you, for you are a little like Bluebeard's famous castle in the fairy tale: One room always remains locked. This is not because you do not care about others. On [...] 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. Because you are a warm-hearted, sympathetic person who hates hurting others, your own personal life may seem a little too full of sad episodes where your love was not appreciated and where you came away feeling hurt and forlorn - even if you did the leaving. You are rather more prone than many people to such a relationship pattern. But this is not because a bad fate sits over you. You are as capable, and as deserving, of a fulfilling and happy relationship as anyone else. Instead of feeling terribly [...] [..] What you may need to take more seriously is your own powerful potential for intellectual and aesthetic excellence, which is your responsibility and cannot be lived out through a loved one. If you deny this side of yourself, and worship it vicariously as beauty and brilliance [...] 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".
