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 [...] [..] You need to be careful not to devalue the importance of your ordinary daily life and your body, for otherwise your flights into the rich world of fantasy and vision will become a defense against your great vulnerability in relationship. Your contempt for the banal and the [...] 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 have a deep dislike of being caught doing ordinary mundane things such [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more humble, more ordinary and more rooted in the affairs of mundane life than it might seem; and it might be summarised by the image of the good person (good in the sense of nice, decent, and the hardworking servant of others). Naturally [...] A minor character [..] You are in love with your differentness, and have considerable contempt for those who live their lives like sheep trying to copy some image offered by media, advertising and Mary Whitehouse.

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 are deeply preoccupied with your image in the eyes of others, you have a tendency to seek relationships with people who can provide you with a mirror in which to see your own reflection. In other words, you are inclined to initially fall in love with the fact that someone has fallen in love with you, because this makes you feel lovable and secure; and you are not always able to nurture the relationship through the difficult transition into an actual meeting between two real individuals. You [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
