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 basic nature is a realistic one, and your characteristic way of dealing with the situations life brings you is to meet them honestly and then to organise them until they are manageable. You possess sound practical abilities, and are gifted with a good "reality function"; and you have the knack of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting your energies in fantasising how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams [...] [..] But this attitude cannot cope effectively with your restlessness and need for meaning. Rather, you tend to dismiss internal disturbances with reasonable explanations such as that you are too tired or need a holiday. Thus you run the risk of moving further and further away [...] 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. [..] Whether your interests are more cerebral (political or philosophical), or concerned with cultural events and trends (the latest best-selling novel, the new play, the innovative opera production), or an expression of more extraverted activities (sport, fashion), you are always [...] [..] They also matter from a broader, more humanitarian point of view. You believe in the rights of others, and your vision of human nature is a positive one, full of potential. You are interested in fostering growth or progress in society in some way, whether in the educational, [...] Hidden traits In contrast to the sociable, articulate and outgoing qualities of your personality, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in [...] A minor character [..] You are blunt, direct and honest, and you do not try to hide behind elaborate social veneers and posturings to mask who you are and what you want. You have little patience with hypocrisy, and are not averse to directly challenging and, if necessary, offending those who [...] 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. You tend to define yourself and your worth according to the social group in which you function, and the friends you gather around you. But you are likely to be deeply attracted to those women who somehow do not seem to "fit" - the loners or the outsiders who belong to no recognisable type or group, and who apparently draw their strength and their confidence from some mysterious inner source. Such a woman will endlessly fascinate and challenge you, because you are used to drawing people out through [...] [..] There is a rather cool and detached side to your love-nature which, however initially smitten you might be, quickly assesses the intelligence of your woman and gives a rating. And you expect your partner to have the same capacity for detachment and reason, for you dislike [...] 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".
