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". You respond to life's challenges with a clear, strong and objective mind, which serves you as a good and reliable friend and which provides you with powerful ethical precepts, uncluttered vision and a love of truth. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head most of the time - with all the virtues and problems that this high and noble domicile includes. "Living in the head" does not necessarily make you an intellectual or a good academic student, although [...] [..] However, your deepest dilemma in life remains the troublesome world of the emotions, and your common sense and realism may combine with your strongly emphasised rationality to make you intolerant of the importance of the inner world. You may be resistant to the value of [...] 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. [..] Underlying all your efforts is a kind of dedication to what you understand as a higher reality. But mystical feelings alone are not sufficient for you. Such dedication must take the form of practical service. You are perpetually aware that there is some purpose to your [...] [..] Because you are a practical person, and tend to be almost punctilious about mundane responsibilities and obligations, you probably spent quite a large portion of your early life expressing rather traditional values - perhaps holding together a family, raising children, or [...] Hidden traits In contrast to your strong inner commitment and your desire to serve what you perceive as a higher reality through helping others, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This figure contains all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your [...] A minor character Although you are no doubt too rational to attribute mystical origins and powers to the mind, reason is virtually a god to you. You tend to think in clear, well-organised patterns, and possess the ability to view any situation from a detached perspective and dissect it [...] 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 your own nature is paradoxical, divided equally between your mystical aspirations and your need for material stability, your relationship life tends to be rather complicated. You are likely to make a relatively conventional kind of partnership in the early part of life, with someone who shares your desire for security and a comfortable home and family life. If you have made a partnership of this kind and it has endured through the many changes which have occurred within you, then you are [...] [..] In short, something in you needs unpredictability in your personal life, and it is best to be aware of this and to ask for it in harmless ways, rather than repressing it until your man begins to behave unpredictably and thereby forces you into accepting disruption against [...] 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".
