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 may also be gifted at working with others, because you possess not only insight but also the patience to wait for people to take their own time to develop; and you might make an excellent teacher or counselor or healer because you never expect more from people than what [...] III.

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 want to experience a kind of fusion in your close relationships - a merging of identities where you are both the protected and the protector, and where you never need to feel separate and alone. Because you bring so much feeling and practical care to your loved ones, you are naturally attracted to your opposite, the person who seems to express easily what you find most difficult: independence, self-containment, detachment, and unpredictability. In short, you have a tendency to fall in love [...] [..] But if you cannot face and live out some of this more independent side of yourself, you may unconsciously choose men who embody it, and who coerce you into having that space by demanding it themselves. Needing space and freedom does not necessarily mean having many lovers; [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
