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". You possess the gift of a clear, strong and objective mind, and you are a lover of truth and integrity in all your dealings. You will always favour reason over chaos, and principles over personal reactions. But there is considerable conflict within you - a dilemma between your rational, detached spirit and your intense and sometimes overpowering feeling. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head -because it seems safer, more civilised, and more "decent" [...] [..] You are somewhat frightened of the sensual side of your nature because it is through this channel that your most powerful and disturbing feelings are released. You need to be careful not to devalue the importance of your ordinary daily life and your body, for otherwise [...] 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 love the feeling that you have been helpful to somebody, and whether it is in your work or your personal life, you need to be needed - not for any enduring strength or dynamism, but for your fluid empathy and understanding, your imagination, and your capacity to forgive. You [...] [..] There is a wide gap between your noble and rather poignant ideal of selfless love and the actual nature of human beings (which includes yourself); and because you are reluctant to bridge this gap by behaving in a normally selfish way occasionally yourself, you set yourself [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more self-centred and ruthless than you might think, and if you remain unconscious of its independent and forceful qualities then you are likely to imagine that you see these attributes in all those people by whom you are fascinated, positively [...] A minor character Whatever your actual age, there is something in you which will never grow old. Even if you carry considerable worldly responsibilities, you carry them lightly, always feeling as though somehow it isn't yet the real thing, but only a practise run. Thus you tend to live [...] 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. Because you are a warm-hearted, sympathetic person who hates hurting others, your own personal life may seem a little too full of sad episodes where your love was not appreciated and where you came away feeling hurt and forlorn - even if you did the leaving. You are rather more prone than many people to such a relationship pattern. But this is not because a bad fate sits over you. You are as capable, and as deserving, of a fulfilling and happy relationship as anyone else. Instead of feeling terribly [...] 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".
