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 [...] [..] However, your deepest dilemma in life remains the troublesome world of your emotions, and your excellent mind, combined with intuitive and imaginative abilities, may drive you further into abstract thought and general philosophical and metaphysical speculation so that you [...] 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 you appear to live on the earth like other people, your mind dwells in loftier, more ethereal realms. You are a sensitive and idealistic person who is not wholly comfortable within the limits and boundaries of material life; for, like Plato, you crave the Good, [...] [..] You seek perfection in everything, which means that you are bound to be disappointed frequently, both by people and by life. Yet your idealism, although many might call it unrealistic, is somehow infectious, and it tends to inspire others - lovers, friends, colleagues - [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden dimension of your personality encompasses the domain of your body, your instincts, your sensual nature and the repressed materialism which you prefer not to acknowledge. The shadow-side of your nature can be an inner enemy if you deny it value, working against [...] A minor character [..] For you, there is no such thing as a blameless victim, because, as the poet William Ernest Henley once wrote: "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." And if a person seems to be unable to take charge of his or her life, well, then, in your estimation, [...] 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 live in a magical, ethereal world; and you need the stabilizing balance of men who seem firmly rooted on the earth and at home in their bodies. Such a person can offer you a very workable relationship, for he can help you to appreciate your own considerable but usually repressed sensuality. You need a partner who is not afraid of the physical realm, for your other-worldly personality requires balance and a bridge into ordinary life. In turn you can help such a partner to see and validate [...] You have the gift of offering real friendship to those you love; and ultimately this may mean more to you and them, and endure longer, than more conventional or sentimental declarations of affection. You know how to let your man exist as a separate individual independent [...] 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".
