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" [...] [..] Your contempt for the banal and the mundane -particularly the routine tasks of daily living - may in reality be a defense against losing control. You need to make better friends with your body and with the earth, so that you experience greater safety in the material world. In [...] 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 thrive on being where all the interesting people are, where ideas are being born and new trends started, and where you can be seen, heard, and part of what in American slang is called "where it's all happening". Whether your interests are more cerebral (political or [...] [..] You do not enjoy working alone, for you need the intellectual stimulus of others despite the creative originality of your thinking; and you dislike isolation in your personal life as well. You believe wholeheartedly in the words of the popular song: People who need people [...] Hidden traits [..] It is hard for you to express this antisocial shadow, for this might mean offending others by withdrawing too harshly from them; and it would also mean questioning your belief that the welfare of others is more important than your own. Generally you suppress your shadow-side [...] A minor character [..] 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 a kind of provisional life, never fully contented, never fully arrived. This quality [...] 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 tend to define yourself and your worth according to the social group in which you function, and the friends you gather around you. But you are likely to be deeply attracted to those women who somehow do not seem to "fit" - the loners or the outsiders who belong to no recognisable type or group, and who apparently draw their strength and their confidence from some mysterious inner source. Such a woman will endlessly fascinate and challenge you, because you are used to drawing people out through [...] [..] You need a close and permanent relationship, although not necessarily a formal marriage in legal terms; and if you have to spend periods of your life alone you tend to remain stuck in a kind of limbo until another relationship comes along which can help you to move again. But [...] 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".
