II. Your Child's Psychological Type
In this concise chapter Liz Greene describes the child's general temperament and his characteristic approach to life.The rich array of individual abilities and potentials portrayed in Ed's birth horoscope is set against the background of an inherent temperament bias which may be partly hereditary but is also the reflection of a mysterious essence which belongs to him alone.

Ed is highly receptive and sensitive on the emotional level, and forms bonds with [...] [..] This will be especially true if absences disturb the continuity of the relationship.
