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 [...] [..] But this attitude cannot cope effectively with your restlessness and need for meaning. Rather, you tend to dismiss internal disturbances with reasonable explanations such as that you are too tired or need a holiday. Thus you run the risk of moving further and further away [...] 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 are not afraid of aggression, either your own or that of others, having made peace with the necessity of going after what you want directly and being prepared to fight for it if you must. You are probably a physically active person, enjoying sport or activities which [...] 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 [...] Loyalty and the sanctity of an established relationship are very high on your list of priorities when it comes to love. You are realistic enough not to expect a marriage made in heaven, and understand enough about the limits of others not to expect a fantasy of perfect [...] 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".
