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 [...] [..] You should probably work in an artistic field where these abilities have their fullest expression, or where you are able to at least enjoy them vicariously through assisting in the creative development of others. You might make a talented designer or novelist, or could [...] 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 great confidence in the power of your own will to shape your future. 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 [...] [..] And when life occasionally showers good luck on you, you are inclined not to trust it, because anything which you have not earned yourself makes you suspicious of the small print in the contract. If it costs nothing, then it can't be any good or there are secret strings [...] 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 deal with the ordinary fears which plague so many people, and which drive them to erect elaborate defensive structures against injury, by staring your fears in the face and putting yourself in precisely the position you are so afraid of; and the fears have a tendency [...] 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 are an independent, courageous and self-sufficient personality. Because you are also human, you need a partner who can relate to you even when you are not being a heroine, and who can offer you gentleness, tenderness and emotional support. Although you prefer others to see you as complete unto yourself, you are not, and you know it. You are drawn to men who are able to express their feelings, and who are not ashamed of needing others. Such a companion can be very good for you - provided you [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
