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 nature is a practical one, and you possess an excellent relationship to what we call the real world. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your realism and your need to express your imagination and find some inner meaning which might validate your efforts. You have the gift of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting energy on fantasies on how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams into actualities; [...] [..] This can help you to discern the general patterns and principles which underlie all human behaviour, so that you can learn to take things less personally and can become less dependent on others. In this way you can enter the inner world with maps which neutralise the anxiety [...] 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. [..] Humanity is not only an idea in your experience, but a living reality; and the events which touch your personal life are immediately translated into broader and more general perspectives, for you cannot conceive of yourself as a separate and detached entity divorced from [...] [..] Your vision of humanity's unity springs from an inner sense of connectedness with a larger and more transpersonal whole; and this defies any rational explanation, however you may strive to express it in rational terms. Thus you are a paradoxical creature, united internally [...] Hidden traits [..] The shadow-side of your personality is considerably more conventional, conservative and traditional than you might like to admit; and if you consider honestly the sometimes disproportionately negative reactions that you display when confronted with such qualities in other [...] A minor character You have made peace with the world's requirements, and intend to enjoy to the full whatever life makes available to you. 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 [...] 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 are curiously paradoxical in your relationship patterns. On the one hand, you believe that you need a like-minded soul who can share your idealistic vision of life and can participate with you as a working partner in those socially meaningful concerns which are more important to you than your daily bread. On the other hand, you deeply need someone who knows how to make sure that you have stability, continuity and material comfort waiting for you whenever you become fatigued by too much world [...] [..] If you are busy with this kind of unconscious disowning of your real nature, do not be surprised if you have a very angry partner on your hands who picks fights with you all the time; and try to remember that you may be fuelling the battle yourself in all kinds of subtle [...] 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".
