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 Mark'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. This mysterious "something" is already at work within Mark, helping him to develop his personality along the lines which are healthiest and most natural to him.

He may find it hard to feel happy and appreciated [...] [..] Naturally this need for strong paternal authority will inevitably make Mark kick against the very thing he most needs.
