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 dislike humdrum jobs which involve too much sameness and routine, and also find it difficult to be pinned down in personal relationships. There is something elusive and other-worldly about you, and although you respond warmly and sensitively to others and will happily [...] 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. [..] When Plato wrote that 95% of the cosmos was under the governorship of Reason, and an annoying and recalcitrant 5% under the dominance of Chaos, he expressed a vision which is very close to your heart; for some of your most fulfilling moments come when you are able to see [...] [..] You incline toward a certain studiousness, and are probably an avid reader versed in a number of different subjects - and you are also likely to be full of all kinds of miscellaneous information about every aspect of life from Hindu religion to basketweaving. This kind [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those rougher qualities which you have excluded from your conscious values and behaviour in order to preserve the beauty, harmony and order of your lifestyle. Your shadow-side is a good deal coarser than you are, full of raw passions [...] A minor character [..] You are a sensitive and idealistic person who is not wholly comfortable within the limits and boundaries of material life; for, like Plato, you crave the Good, the True and the Beautiful - and if you are unable to find glimpses of your dream amidst the mundane circumstances [...] 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, [...] [..] You also like to use words a lot, to talk, philosophise and theorise about love; and you may have difficulties with a more taciturn or dour type of woman who cannot play with romantic words and gestures as you can. In part, you love this kind of verbal love-game for its [...] 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".
