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 might make an excellent parent and a fine psychotherapist, counselor or personnel supervisor; or, if you turn to the more artistic side of life, your work will always take ordinary people's dilemmas as its theme, and will reflect with much subtlety the spectrum of human [...] 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. [..] Fatalistic philosophies are not for you; nor are those ideologies that transfer ultimate responsibility for one's life and one's destiny onto society, the state, or any other external agency. You are convinced that you possess the capacity to make your life into anything [...] [..] More likely other people weep on yours, for you are strong, practical and calm in emergency; but they do not weep for long, for you believe in self-discipline and restraint and have little time for professional victims. Nothing annoys you more than someone chronically manipulating [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more dependent, confused and lost than you are; and it contains a liberal dose of passivity and a kind of childlike trust that someone else will come along and take care of things. This secret dimension of your personality is all that you [...] A minor character [..] You have little patience with hypocrisy, and are not averse to directly challenging and, if necessary, offending those who offend you by their refusal to be themselves. You enjoy luxury and pleasure and are unafraid of calling desire by its name and unashamedly pursuing [...] 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 you love rescuing damsels in distress, you will naturally find one to rescue, sooner or later. And you do in fact need a gentler, less forceful and more emotionally forthcoming partner to complement your rather fierce pride and independence. You need to protect someone, and deserve a woman who will appreciate the rather heroic ways in which you show your love. But having rescued her, you need to be careful not to feel bewildered, abandoned and resentful if she shows increasing signs of [...] 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".
