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 [...] 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. There is no nonsense and no pretense about your personality and your views.

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. Since you are a direct and rather down-to-earth individual with no frills or poses, you are naturally attracted to the person who seems to scintillate with intellectual and cultural sophistication, wit, poise, and social finesse. In other words, you aim toward the heights in your relationships; and although you might dislike or even despise people whom you consider posturing fakes, you tend to be rather star-struck when you come across the real thing - a man who seems to possess genuine refinement [...] VI.
