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 [...] [..] You are capable of a great deal of patience and loyalty, and may take much pleasure from work which involves helping or caring for others, or in assisting them to develop their creative capacities.

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. All that is young, helpless, unprotected or in pain draws your ready sympathy and support. Your chief fulfillment comes through your relationships with others, and through the feeling that your great reserves of strength are of use and value for someone else.

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 want to experience a kind of fusion in your close relationships - a merging of identities where you are both the protected and the protector, and where you never need to feel separate and alone. Because you bring so much feeling and practical care to your loved ones, you are naturally attracted to your opposite, the person who seems to express easily what you find most difficult: independence, self-containment, detachment, and unpredictability. In short, you have a tendency to fall in love [...] [..] You are also comfortable with the fact that it is easier to maintain a relationship when you and your partner are not pressured by financial difficulties, for nothing destroys love faster than anxieties about money. Therefore you are prepared to work hard with your man [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
