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 respond to life's challenges with a clear, strong and objective mind, which serves you as a good and reliable friend and which provides you with powerful ethical precepts, uncluttered vision and a love of truth. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head most of the time - with all the virtues and problems that this high and noble domicile includes. "Living in the head" does not necessarily make you an intellectual or a good academic student, although [...] [..] You need to be careful not to devalue the importance of your ordinary daily life and your body, for otherwise your flights into the rich world of fantasy and vision will become a defense against your great vulnerability in relationship. Your contempt for the banal and the [...] 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 thrive on being where all the interesting people are, where ideas are being born and new trends started, and where you can be seen, heard, and part of what in American slang is called "where it's all happening". Whether your interests are more cerebral (political or [...] [..] Thus the group usually believe that they, rather than you, came up with the idea first. Because you are neither arrogant nor self-seeking, you can permit this without feeling demeaned, as long as the objective is reached; and therefore you are a formidable person when it [...] Hidden traits In contrast to the sociable, articulate and outgoing qualities of your personality, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in [...] A minor character [..] Plato wrote that 95% of the cosmos was under the governorship of Reason, and an annoying and recalcitrant 5% under the dominance of Chaos. When you are confronted with the other 5% (which has a nasty tendency to creep in despite your efforts), you tend to either turn your [...] 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 tend to define yourself and your worth according to the social group in which you function, and the friends you gather around you. But you are likely to be deeply attracted to those women who somehow do not seem to "fit" - the loners or the outsiders who belong to no recognisable type or group, and who apparently draw their strength and their confidence from some mysterious inner source. Such a woman will endlessly fascinate and challenge you, because you are used to drawing people out through [...] [..] You are realistic enough not to expect a marriage made in heaven, and understand enough about the limits of others not to expect a fantasy of perfect spiritual and sexual love. You are also comfortable with the fact that it is easier to maintain a relationship when you [...] 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".
