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 basic nature is a realistic one, and your characteristic way of dealing with the situations life brings you is to meet them honestly and then to organise them until they are manageable. You possess sound practical abilities, and are gifted with a good "reality function"; and you have the knack of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting your energies in fantasising how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams [...] 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. Although no man or woman is an island, you do your best to be at least a peninsula; for you are an introverted and rather solitary person who values inner perceptions over external events, and who prefers a few real friends to a cast of thousands chatting away at a party. You [...] [..] You are neither frivolous nor superficial, although you have a marked sense of humour of a rather sardonic or ironical kind; and you tend to savour an experience, take it inside and look at it until you understand it in depth, expressing this reflective quality even when [...] Hidden traits [..] In your efforts to rely solely on your own resources for your survival and your achievements in life, you have of necessity had to exclude certain dimensions of yourself; and this other, hidden side of you poses you with a great challenge. For this is your Achilles' heel, [...] A minor character [..] Everyone is worthwhile to you on some level and you enjoy meeting all kinds of people in all sorts of situations - on trains and planes, in cafes and restaurants, and wherever a few exchanges of ordinary conversation convey to you the experience that you have a relationship [...] 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 tend to fall in love with the men whom everyone else loves too. Your rather solitary and introverted personality is magnetically attracted to those extraverted people who seem to get on with everybody, and who possess the secret of effortless popularity - a secret which you claim you do not want, but which you secretly envy. You are deeply discriminating and selective in your friendships and your lovers; and this makes you fascinated by men who like and are liked by lots of people. A more [...] [..] Something in you is sexually sparked only when you meet a man who can stand up to you and who will not allow you to dominate him; for although you respond to beauty and harmony, you respond to passion more, and one of the primary ingredients of passion is combat. Thus you [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
