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 are one of life's true romantics, because your reality is the inner world of fantasy and imagination. The limitations of daily life can bore you, and you try at every available opportunity to inject into mundane situations a note of the mythic and the meaningful. However, your romanticism is constantly being challenged by another side of your personality: your fear of disruption to your material security. Although you dislike being tied to routines which seem inconsequential and stifling, [...] [..] Your deepest challenge in life, however, still remains the problem of earthing your vision and sense of human potential within the confines of material reality; and here your dependency upon human contact may make it even more difficult for you to cope with the restrictions [...] 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 are initially very difficult to get to know, and others can spend years working in proximity to you without ever really glimpsing your true thoughts and feelings. Even those closest to you - lovers, partners, parents, children, enduring friends - often do not know many [...] [..] It is probable that one or both parents failed you or hurt you deeply in some way - probably around the issue of overt expressions of warmth and genuine companionship; and it is also probable that you were expected to be too responsible, either in duties or emotionally, [...] Hidden traits [..] No doubt there are particular individuals in your life whom you admit that you need, and to whom you can acknowledge your longing for warmth and support. But the collective - that faceless mass which you so often dread and detach yourself from -is far more important to [...] A minor character [..] You deal with the ordinary fears which plague so many people, and which drive them to erect elaborate defensive structures against injury, by staring your fears in the face and putting yourself in precisely the position you are so afraid of; and the fears have a tendency [...] 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 deep, solitary and unfathomable, and tend to be quite self-reliant and happy with your own company. But you are magnetically attracted to those more gregarious, outgoing women who exude charm and warmth and who seem to effortlessly make friends. Such a woman is a good balance for you, and this kind of relationship can be very fulfilling; for you can offer your partner a glimpse into the importance of inner resources and self-sufficiency, while she in turn can help you to feel more like [...] [..] For if you cannot make the required sacrifice of your pride, and let your partner see your longing to losing yourself in feelings of devotion, then you may have to make a different kind of sacrifice - the loss of the relationship itself, either because you project all these [...] VI.
