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 possess the gift of a clear, strong and objective mind, and you are a lover of truth and integrity in all your dealings. You will always favour reason over chaos, and principles over personal reactions. But there is considerable conflict within you - a dilemma between your rational, detached spirit and your intense and sometimes overpowering feeling. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head -because it seems safer, more civilised, and more "decent" [...] [..] Your contempt for the banal and the mundane -particularly the routine tasks of daily living - may in reality be a defense against losing control. You need to make better friends with your body and with the earth, so that you experience greater safety in the material world. In [...] 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 made a career out of your own style and image, and although this may seem selfish and egocentric to some, there is a highly creative dimension to your eternal self-preoccupation. You possess great quantities of sheer unadulterated vitality, and serve as a vivid [...] [..] If you have chosen to work in the helping professions, as a therapist or counsellor, you may have considerable inner conflict, for you may secretly try to earn the adulation of those you are trying to help; and you also have a tendency to become impatient and irritable listening [...] Hidden traits In contrast to the rather flamboyantly energetic personality which you habitually show the world, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama; and this more shadowy side of you contains all those qualities which you have excluded from your conscious goals and [...] A minor character [..] Although you enjoy the company of other people, and attract them easily because of the vitality of your personality, you are quite incapable of compromising your ideals and freedom of action for very long in order to please anyone - even those you love most. You resent [...] 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 tendency to be preoccupied with maintaining an exciting and attractive image in the eyes of others, and therefore are inclined to enter relationships with women who can provide you with a mirror in which to see your own beautiful reflection. In other words, you do not easily relate to real lovers (although you may to friends); rather, you initially fall in love with the fact that someone has fallen in love with you, and are not always able to nurture the relationship through the difficult [...] [..] Thus you are better off accommodating this need in your life, for if you try to keep love on too even, placid and pleasant a course for too long, you may find that the love remains but the desire disappears, only to reappear somewhere else. You need to express honestly [...] 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".
