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" [...] [..] However, your deepest dilemma in life remains the troublesome world of your emotions, and your excellent mind, combined with intuitive and imaginative abilities, may drive you further into abstract thought and general philosophical and metaphysical speculation so that you [...] 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. [..] It is just that what other people call real life does not agree with your picture of things. In a crisis or emergency you can be practical enough, and somehow your survival instincts inevitably attract to you precisely the right people and situations to help you cope - [...] [..] Without constant demonstrations of affection, you shrivel like a plant without water. Never mind if you are sometimes a little mannered, stylised and not always true to your real and immediate feelings in how you express love; it matters to you that courtesy, charm and [...] Hidden traits [..] This secret side of your personality cannot accommodate the gap between your ideals and the complex problems, pain and limitations inherent in human experience; and there is thus a tension in you, a split between your optimistic philosophy and your deeper and darker perceptions. The more [...] A minor character Although no man or woman is an island, you do your best to be at least a peninsula. You are initially 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 [...] 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 have a wonderfully romantic vision of love which, no matter how many knocks life gives you, never becomes wholly tarnished. But because you are really looking not for a fellow-romantic but for a companion who is worldlier than you and can protect you from the harder and darker aspects of existence, you tend to be attracted by a more realistic and earthier kind of woman. Such a relationship can be very creative for you, since you can enhance your partner's life with your vision of a better, [...] 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".
