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 are one of the world's true romantics, for your intensely active imagination must always inject into ordinary circumstances an aura of meaning, potential and purpose without which you find daily life inconsequential and sometimes suffocating. The great strength of your nature lies in your well-developed relationship to the creative power of the unconscious, which allows you to look into the future and envisage potentials which are not immediately apparent in the present. Because of this, you [...] [..] And because your natural romanticism tends to express itself through faith in the potential of a relationship, you find it hard to face the imperfect reality of another person, preferring to live in a fantasy-image of what he or she could become rather than accepting 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 tend to dwell up in the air a lot, but that is not because you are naive or stupid. It is just that what other people call real life does not agree with your picture of things. In a crisis or emergency you can be practical enough, and somehow your survival instincts [...] [..] You have a highly idealised picture of what you call love, and the romantic trappings of courtship are a necessary part of relationship to you - flowers, music, candlelight and romantic words and gestures. Without constant demonstrations of affection, you shrivel like a [...] Hidden traits [..] Despite your capacity to bounce back from hurts and disappointments with a positive philosophy and an undiminished faith in the ultimate higher purpose of all experiences, something in you does not recover so easily, and has perhaps never quite believed in all the fairness, [...] A minor character [..] Plato wrote that 95% of the cosmos was under the governorship of Reason, and an annoying and recalcitrant 5% under the dominance of Chaos. When you are confronted with the other 5% (which has a nasty tendency to creep in despite your efforts), you tend to either turn your [...] 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 have a wonderfully romantic vision of love which, no matter how many knocks life gives you, never becomes wholly tarnished. But because you are really looking not for a fellow-romantic but for a companion who is worldlier than you and can protect you from the harder and darker aspects of existence, you tend to be attracted by a more realistic and earthier kind of woman. Such a relationship can be very creative for you, since you can enhance your partner's life with your vision of a better, [...] [..] And you expect your partner to have the same capacity for detachment and reason, for you dislike steamy emotional scenes and rapidly become evasive, aloof and disinterested if your woman starts becoming what you call irrational. You need and deserve an intellectual match. What [...] 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".
