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 basic nature is a realistic one, and your characteristic way of dealing with the situations life brings you is to meet them honestly and then to organise them until they are manageable. You possess sound practical abilities, and are gifted with a good "reality function"; and you have the knack of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting your energies in fantasising how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams [...] [..] 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. [..] 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 [...] [..] You can put on the mask of a more extraverted personality when necessary, for you are realistic and are prepared to pay a few of the world's dues in order to be left alone to pursue your own paths later. But the components of your life matter to you, and you put your whole [...] Hidden traits In contrast to the depth, inner strength and self-containment of your personality, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama; and this second figure lies in shadow. In your efforts to rely solely on your own resources for your survival and your achievements [...] A minor character [..] You do not lack imagination, or appreciation of the new; but you are inclined to be cautious about most things, preferring to wait and see whether an idea, a feeling or a person are really what they seem, or whether they are a brief "flash in the pan" without substance. You [...] 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 are deep, solitary and unfathomable, and tend to be quite self-reliant and happy with your own company. But you are magnetically attracted to those more gregarious, outgoing women who exude charm and warmth and who seem to effortlessly make friends. Such a woman is a good balance for you, and this kind of relationship can be very fulfilling; for you can offer your partner a glimpse into the importance of inner resources and self-sufficiency, while she in turn can help you to feel more like [...] [..] Something in you is sexually sparked only when you meet a woman who can stand up to you and who will not allow you to dominate her; for although you respond to beauty and harmony, you respond to passion more, and one of the primary ingredients of passion is combat. Thus [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
