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 possess an artistic and temperamental nature which tends to undervalue the ordinary; and because you have difficulty in expressing in words what you want and feel, you often create problems simply because you resent having to explain yourself. Thus, despite your compassion [...] 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. [..] But everything you experience outside yourself - people, places, situations - is ultimately subordinated to the inner vision you have of its meaning and its essence. Life is only interesting to you if it contains the maximum resemblance to the mythic drama which you perceive [...] [..] At best, you have a unique capacity to express yourself in a vivid, colourful and imaginative way, and everything that you perceive becomes transparent like glass and full of the light of your symbolic inner world. Your concentration tends to be poor unless you are studying [...] Hidden traits In contrast to your poetic vision of life, and the colour and drama which you habitually inject into it, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This figure comprises all those more mundane, earthbound and ordinary qualities which you have had to exclude [...] A minor character [..] Fatalistic philosophies are not for you; nor are those ideologies that transfer ultimate responsibility for one's life and one's destiny onto society, the state, or any other external agency. You find it hard to be patient and understanding with those apparently hapless [...] 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 live so close to the immense and fecund depths of the unconscious that you can easily become inflated - which means that, accustomed to the treasures of the imagination, you can easily begin to feel that you are too special, unique and gifted to be bothered with more mundane concerns. You have learned to flow with your fantasies, and have therefore not developed the capacity for clear analysis and decision-making in the outer world. Because your nature is so strongly marked by poetry and romance, [...] [..] You know how to let your woman exist as a separate individual independent of your need of her, which means that you are deeply tolerant - even when you are feeling angry or offended. Your partner's idiosyncrasies do not surprise you, for you know that it takes all kinds [...] 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".
