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" [...] [..] You may be resistant to the value of anything that you cannot see or touch or analyse, and consequently you may ignore your feelings not only because they are threatening in their power, but because they are not objects which you can manipulate and control. Not only do [...] 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 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 [...] [..] You rely on physical and emotional comfort rather than the abstract realm of the mind and the spirit for your fulfillment, and you are capable of expending considerable effort to obtain what you feel you need - including other people, whom you tend to put in the same category [...] Hidden traits [..] Thus the shadow-side of your personality is really a profound mystical longing for a higher reality which, because it might interfere with your earthier desires, you usually suppress as being naive and unrealistic. Yet all the cynicism in the world cannot erase what belongs [...] A minor character [..] You are perpetually aware that there is some purpose to your life - but its definition is always, somehow, just out of reach. You are not spiritual in the sense of being content to bask in a subjective experience of oneness with life, or religious in the sense of Sunday [...] 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. The women who draw your powerfully physical personality are somehow more ethereal than you, and seem to personify some mystical or poetic realm which you fear entering yet which nevertheless fascinates you. A relationship with such a woman can be very creative for you, since a more imaginative partner can help you to trust your own inner vision and spirit and to treat these invisible things with value; and you in turn can offer containment and a bridge to practical life. But you need to be careful [...] You know things about love that you certainly didn't read in fairy tales, ladies' magazines or school primers. You have an instinctive appreciation of the fact that the human heart is complex and sometimes savage; and that, when one loves deeply, one can also hate the [...] 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".
