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 nature is a practical one, and you possess an excellent relationship to what we call the real world. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your realism and your need to express your imagination and find some inner meaning which might validate your efforts. You have the gift of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting energy on fantasies on how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams into actualities; [...] [..] You may need to give more value to the cool and detached domain of abstract ideas. This can help you to discern the general patterns and principles which underlie all human behaviour, so that you can learn to take things less personally and can become less dependent on [...] 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 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, shopkeepers who recognise your face, [...] [..] You are especially talented at the social arts, and can talk to just about anybody about anything at least for a little while, because of your almost uncanny ability to sense the emotional needs of others and to respond with a gentle, concerned and interested manner. You [...] Hidden traits [..] You are a party kind of person in both senses of the word - inclined to like jovial social gatherings, and also inclined to join a group which espouses a particular political and social philosophy. Your shadow-side is apolitical, antisocial, self-willed and doesn't think [...] A minor character [..] 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, [...] 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 admire creative and individualistic women, and are drawn to those who are independent and strong enough to help you develop more confidence in your own vision and ideas. You yourself are at your best when surrounded by a group of like-minded souls, and are therefore naturally attracted to your complement: the person who can stand alone. Such a relationship can work very well for you. But you need to be careful not to efface yourself too much, for if you idealise your partner's originality [...] 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".
