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 [...] [..] Your danger lies in a tendency toward cramped vision, because your feelings of empathy only extend to what you can see and touch and know in your personal life; and the broader world around you may remain merely an abstract concept and a frightening place which you are reluctant [...] 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. [..] You are intelligent without being an intellectual snob; you enjoy luxury and pleasure and are unafraid of calling desire by its name and unashamedly pursuing what you want; and you have no illusions about the fact that life sometimes demands courage, ruthlessness and effort [...] [..] You can see with acute honesty the real worth of a person or a thing, and prefer your meal without the disguise of rich sauce or elaborate garnish. You love rich simple colours and textures, and have an excellent relationship with the rhythms of nature and the beauty of [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is far more delicate, romantic and intellectually subtle than your ordinary expression would suggest; and it contains aesthetic and artistic aspirations which you would usually consider pretentious if you saw them in others, and which make you uneasy when [...] A minor character [..] Reality for you consists of what you can see, touch, smell, taste, hear, and put in the bank; and although you love physical beauty wherever you find it - in a person, a work of art, or in nature - you do not become distressed by visions of unattainable perfection or aspirations [...] 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 may not care to put much time and energy into adorning yourself, your speech or your behaviour just to please some social requirement of finesse; but your secret need to develop your intellectual and aesthetic side draws you toward women who seem to embody that elusive element called "class". Physical beauty matters a great deal to you in a partner, and it must be a very special kind of beauty: the kind that seems at home in every setting including the best restaurants and the most fashionable [...] [..] Thus you are not afraid to desire others merely as sexual objects, for there is a crude simplicity in you which recoils from having to gloss over your instinctual needs with romantic words and promises. You may sometimes be a little too basic and curt for your own good, [...] 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".
