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 [...] [..] What "other people" think is entirely too important to you, and you will need to learn to risk expressing your own highly original ideas and viewpoints - even if these are apparently "odd" in conventional terms - if you are to ever feel truly independent and capable of coping [...] 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 merely pick yourself up and try again, storing the lesson carefully in your growing files. 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 [...] [..] With all this innate mistrust in your nature, however, you are always ready and willing to help others if they ask (but not if they demand or whine pathetically). You can be loyal, generous and supportive, especially when everyone else has left the sinking ship - for there [...] Hidden traits [..] There is a secret romantic within you, full of nebulous and ethereal visions, childlike and innocent, who looks out at life and sees nothing but what is lovely and good and kind; and you have a great dilemma with this shadow-side, because while you know that its vision is [...] A minor character [..] You do not lack imagination, or appreciation of the new; but you are inclined to be cautious about most things, preferring to wait and see whether an idea, a feeling or a person are really what they seem, or whether they are a brief "flash in the pan" without substance. You [...] 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. In the process of making peace with the harsh limits of reality, you have had to sacrifice many of your dreams - particularly your dreams of romantic love. Yet you are magnetically drawn to those men who can somehow help you to restore your faith in life - men who are themselves incurable romantics and who will never compromise their ideals in the ways that you have. Your realism gives you great strength and self-sufficiency; yet you have paid a price for it in the loss of your inner child with [...] [..] You are realistic enough not to expect a marriage made in heaven, and understand enough about the limits of others not to expect a fantasy of perfect spiritual and sexual love. You are also comfortable with the fact that it is easier to maintain a relationship when you [...] 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".
