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 may become stubborn and resistant to change and to new ideas, and sometimes display a defensive conservatism which stifles the creative originality of others and of yourself. What "other people" think is entirely too important to you, and you will need to learn to risk [...] 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 trust those relationships which may admittedly lack flamboyant passion, but which have withstood hardship and testing; and you are profoundly suspicious of the grand infatuation which may turn out to be merely illusion. Although it may seem to others that you sometimes [...] [..] This does not mean that you are a cold person, for you are capable of deep loyalty and self-sacrifice, particularly for family and old friends. But it is quite impossible for you to do something totally on impulse, even if your shrewd assessment of the situation has been [...] Hidden traits [..] There is something extremely rebellious and rather wild inside you, which not only longs to break free of the sometimes constricting views you hold; it is also much more concerned with, and connected to, the broader stream of humanity, particularly the unconscious side of [...] A minor character [..] You are uncomfortable if you become isolated in an impersonal big city with no one to meet or telephone, or if you are stuck in the distant countryside away from others; for you are most at home where there are neighbours to say hello to and shopkeepers who recognise your [...] 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. You want stability, constancy and serenity in your relationships, because this reflects your own pragmatic and self-contained nature. But you are tend to get involved with women who are your complement: women who are anything but stable. You are fascinated by creativity and unpredictability in others, and by that elusive youthful spirit which you yourself somehow missed out on during your own youth. Thus you are drawn to women who are elusive and magical, and who can bring colour and vitality [...] [..] Perhaps you do not even know you want it. But if you cannot face and live out some of this more independent side of yourself, you may unconsciously choose women who embody it, and who coerce you into having that space by demanding it themselves. Needing space and freedom [...] 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".
