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 [...] [..] The deepest dilemma of your life remains, however, your difficulty in overcoming your extreme subjectivity and in developing a more detached and impersonal perspective on life. Your earthiness, combined with your emphasis on human relationship, can make you a little narrow [...] 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 take little pleasure in that absolute autonomy and freedom to direct your own life that many people claim they want; for your chief pleasure springs from living for and through others. You are not inclined toward cold ambition, or the need to be somebody in the world's [...] [..] You are a more powerful personality than you like people to see, although your chief power lies in your capacity to maneuvre feeling atmospheres and is therefore a very subtle form of control. The more you unconsciously try to coerce others into remaining close to you, [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more self-centred and ruthless than you might think, and if you remain unconscious of its independent and forceful qualities then you are likely to imagine that you see these attributes in all those people by whom you are fascinated, positively [...] 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. Because you are a warm-hearted, sympathetic person who hates hurting others, your own personal life may seem a little too full of sad episodes where your love was not appreciated and where you came away feeling hurt and forlorn - even if you did the leaving. You are rather more prone than many people to such a relationship pattern. But this is not because a bad fate sits over you. You are as capable, and as deserving, of a fulfilling and happy relationship as anyone else. Instead of feeling terribly [...] [..] The woman who "ought" to be most suitable is often not the one who turns you on; and the one who really excites and inspires you is often one whom your moral, ethical or social standards will condemn as difficult or inappropriate. In short, your emotional needs and your [...] 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".
