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". Your nature is a practical one, and you possess an excellent relationship to what we call the real world. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your realism and your need to express your imagination and find some inner meaning which might validate your efforts. You have the gift of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting energy on fantasies on how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams into actualities; [...] [..] You might make an excellent parent and a fine psychotherapist, counselor or personnel supervisor; or, if you turn to the more artistic side of life, your work will always take ordinary people's dilemmas as its theme, and will reflect with much subtlety the spectrum of human [...] 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 the fulfillment of your desires in the here and now that interests you, not some other incarnation or astral experience. Because of your deeply sensual appreciation of life, you are more than likely to draw delight from the fruits of whatever you accomplish - the [...] [..] It is difficult for you to feel respect, admiration and empathy for another person without some sensual component entering into the relationship, whether this is expressed as the naturally demonstrative affection of a friend or the passionate caresses of a lover. Your personal [...] Hidden traits In contrast to your earthy and sensuous nature, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama; and this hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to fully enjoy your day-to-day [...] A minor character [..] You have little patience with hypocrisy, and are not averse to directly challenging and, if necessary, offending those who offend you by their refusal to be themselves. You enjoy luxury and pleasure and are unafraid of calling desire by its name and unashamedly pursuing [...] 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 [...] [..] It is very likely that you will project this rather primitive side of your nature onto your partner - which means that you will unconsciously push her into acting out the aggression and provocativeness which you really feel but which you hate to show in case anyone might [...] 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".
