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 [...] [..] You combine insight with the capacity for action, and can deal with just about any concrete challenge that life brings. You also possess ethics and a sense of fairness, and you do not forget the relevance of broader humanitarian issues to your own interests. However, one [...] 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. [..] 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 back upon it and ignore it, or set about trying to clean it up. You are likely to be attracted to beautiful philosophies as well as beautiful [...] [..] You are probably good with your hands, and adept at a variety of crafts or skills; or, if not, then your sharp eye and natural sense of form and rhythm could lead you to excel in the design side of the arts. You incline toward a certain studiousness, and are probably an [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those rougher qualities which you have excluded from your conscious values and behaviour in order to preserve the beauty, harmony and order of your lifestyle. Your shadow-side is a good deal coarser than you are, full of raw passions [...] A minor character [..] You fear and despise wanton anarchy and chaos, and will never willingly destroy something simply because you disapprove of it; rather, if you feel that something needs changing, you will work slowly and carefully to inaugurate better conditions while still preserving what [...] 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. Your extreme love of beauty and perfection results in your being inevitably attracted to the man who seems rougher, more primitive, more direct and somehow more brazenly honest than you. In fact you need a partner who can help you to unlock your rather inhibited but nevertheless considerable sensuality, and who can also teach you to say what you mean rather than embedding it in a series of clauses, equivocations and parentheses which would put a solicitor to shame. In return you can offer such [...] 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".
