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 not only have empathy for others; you also know how to deal with people's practical needs in a caring way, and you create around yourself a harmonious and supportive atmosphere in which others immediately feel safe and at home. You are capable of a great deal of patience [...] 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. Although no man or woman is an island, you do your best to be at least a peninsula; for you are an introverted and rather solitary person who values inner perceptions over external events, and who prefers a few real friends to a cast of thousands chatting away at a party. You [...] [..] You are neither frivolous nor superficial, although you have a marked sense of humour of a rather sardonic or ironical kind; and you tend to savour an experience, take it inside and look at it until you understand it in depth, expressing this reflective quality even when [...] Hidden traits [..] This is the reason why you are drawn to those fields of work which force you into contact with others, and where the approval of the larger group is in some way necessary to you; and it is also the reason why, so much of the time, your efforts to serve others constitute [...] A minor character [..] You fear and despise wanton anarchy and chaos, and will never willingly destroy something simply because you disapprove of it; rather, if you feel that something needs changing, you will work slowly and carefully to inaugurate better conditions while still preserving what [...] 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 [...] [..] Thus you are better off accommodating this need in your life, for if you try to keep love on too even, placid and pleasant a course for too long, you may find that the love remains but the desire disappears, only to reappear somewhere else. You need to express honestly [...] 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".
