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 [...] [..] What "other people" think is entirely too important to you, and you will need to learn to risk expressing your own highly original ideas and viewpoints - even if these are apparently "odd" in conventional terms - if you are to ever feel truly independent and capable of coping [...] 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. [..] Your romantic spirit believes in true love, goodness rewarded, evil punished, the essential fairness of life, and the ultimate achievement of all your rosy and glorious dreams. You tend to dwell up in the air a lot, but that is not because you are naive or stupid. It is [...] [..] You have a highly idealised picture of what you call love, and the romantic trappings of courtship are a necessary part of relationship to you - flowers, music, candlelight and romantic words and gestures. Without constant demonstrations of affection, you shrivel like a [...] Hidden traits [..] This secret side of your personality cannot accommodate the gap between your ideals and the complex problems, pain and limitations inherent in human experience; and there is thus a tension in you, a split between your optimistic philosophy and your deeper and darker perceptions. The more [...] A minor character [..] You are not particularly interested in abstract concerns for a statistically defined humanity. It is the individual whom you meet along the way who concerns you, the one who needs help or encouragement. You are not all sweetness and light, of course, and are capable of [...] 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. Your delightfully romantic and curiously innocent vision of life circles around the dream of the perfect relationship where you and your partner live happily ever after. Because life is likely to give you a few knocks on this front (although it can never wholly tarnish your dream), you tend to be attracted to those people who are more worldly-wise than you, who can cope with the harder and darker facets of life, and who can be a kind of buffer between you and the nasty cold world outside. In other [...] 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".
