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". The world of human relationship means everything to you, and the feelings of others are primary on the scale of your values. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your need for warmth and closeness with others, and your need for privacy, space and the freedom to pursue your own interests - which often involve abstract concepts quite divorced from human reality. You have great compassion for the problems of others, and may often find yourself playing the role of the good mother or father [...] 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 love the feeling that you have been helpful to somebody, and whether it is in your work or your personal life, you need to be needed - not for any enduring strength or dynamism, but for your fluid empathy and understanding, your imagination, and your capacity to forgive. You [...] [..] You recoil from selfishness, or what you consider to be selfishness - which is, in your terms, an individual acting according to his or her own needs rather than in the interests of the relationship or the group; and because you strive all the time to be selfless (for this [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more self-centred and ruthless than you might think, and if you remain unconscious of its independent and forceful qualities then you are likely to imagine that you see these attributes in all those people by whom you are fascinated, positively [...] A minor character [..] Your chief fulfillment comes through your relationships with others, and through the feeling that your great reserves of strength are of use and value for someone else. You are not particularly interested in abstract concerns for a statistically defined humanity. It is [...] 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 admire strong, self-contained people and are likely to find yourself in a relationship with just such a man. This can be a good complement for you, since your gifts are subtler and lie in the realm of the heart; and you can offer considerable compassion and loyalty to your partner while benefitting from the example of his self-reliance. But you will need to fight against an unfortunate tendency to make your partner responsible for your sense of self-worth, as though you had no value in your [...] [..] Perhaps you do not even know you want it. But if you cannot face and live out some of this more independent side of yourself, you may unconsciously choose men who embody it, and who coerce you into having that space by demanding it themselves. Needing space and freedom [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
