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". The world of human relationship means everything to you, and the feelings of others are primary on the scale of your values. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your need for warmth and closeness with others, and your need for privacy, space and the freedom to pursue your own interests - which often involve abstract concepts quite divorced from human reality. You have great compassion for the problems of others, and may often find yourself playing the role of the good mother or father [...] [..] You should probably work in an artistic field where these abilities have their fullest expression, or where you are able to at least enjoy them vicariously through assisting in the creative development of others. You might make a talented designer or novelist, or could [...] 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. [..] There must be Something More, you tell yourself, because you are quite unable to live with and accept the harsher aspects of reality. It is as though you are missing some layer of skin that other people seem to have; and consequently, life bruises you easily. Because you [...] [..] You respond readily to sadness and suffering, for you have a large fund of melancholy feeling within yourself, and you resonate deeply to the human condition - at least, to what you experience as the human condition, which is a rather poignant image of imprisoned spirit [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden dimension of your personality encompasses the domain of your body, your instincts, your sensual nature and the repressed materialism which you prefer not to acknowledge. The shadow-side of your nature can be an inner enemy if you deny it value, working against [...] A minor character [..] You resent having to explain yourself and your strange vision too plainly to more literal souls who think an object is merely an object rather than a symbol, a doorway and a vessel. Because your allegiance to the imaginal world is so strong, your adherence to the conventional [...] 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 drawn to those women who can help you to come down into the earth and into your own body, as well as into the responsibilities of practical life, because you tend to live in your head and in your imagination most of the time - the realm where you are most gifted and most at home. A relationship with an earthier and more practical partner can work very well for you, for you can offer such a woman a glimpse of a broader and higher reality, and can bring meaning and vision into her life. But you [...] [..] Or you may simply be honest about your love of variety. But you are going to have certain difficulties if you make the decision to commit yourself to one woman for a lifetime. It is not that you cannot love; for, if anything, you love to excess, and throw your whole self [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
