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 [...] [..] You are also highly perceptive about people without expecting too much from them, and possess much gentleness and delicacy in all your relationship dealings. You might make an excellent parent and a fine psychotherapist, counselor or personnel supervisor; or, if you turn [...] 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.

Everyday [...] Hidden traits [..] This figure, which lies in the shadow-world of the unconscious, represents all those qualities which really belong to you yet which you have of necessity excluded from your life in order to retain your feeling of constant relationship with others. Your shadow-side contains [...] A minor character [..] You would do anything for those you love, and tend to forgive them almost anything; and however much you are hurt and disappointed, you do not lose your belief in the importance of kindness or in the worthiness of others. You are not inclined toward cold ambition, or the [...] 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. Although you are not above a little straying from the path of monogamous commitment (in fantasy if not in actuality), you tend to place enormous importance on the stability of your domestic life; and you tend to become deeply dependent on those you love because close relationships form the bedrock of your life. You are naturally attracted to women who are elusive, unpredictable, intellectually alive, and even perhaps a little childlike and in need of your protection. This kind of partner is a [...] [..] Because of this gift of deep compassion for the darker aspects of love, you can be truly understanding and containing of your partner's complexity; and even when you have been deeply hurt or are very angry, you still retain a secret sympathy for the things which drove her [...] VI.
