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 nature is a practical one, and you possess an excellent relationship to what we call the real world. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your realism and your need to express your imagination and find some inner meaning which might validate your efforts. You have the gift of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting energy on fantasies on how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams into actualities; [...] [..] Then any eruption from the unconscious which threatens to disturb your safe domain is likely to be rejected and repressed, and you may use your need of people, and their need of you, to avoid the challenge of aloneness which always accompanies any creative effort.

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.

Your shadow-side is a good deal coarser than you are, full of raw passions [...] A minor character Although no man or woman is an island, you do your best to be at least a peninsula. You are initially difficult to get to know, and others can spend years working in proximity to you without ever really glimpsing your true thoughts and feelings. Even those closest to 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. Your intellectual and aesthetic gifts form one of the most interesting and attractive dimensions of your personality. They also tend to make you a little precious, because you want your world to be perfect and orderly and beautiful; and the result of this is that you are inevitably attracted to a more primitive type of partner, perhaps less articulate and not so well educated, but nevertheless warmer, more uninhibited, more honest, and more direct. Such a relationship can work very well for you, [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
