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 [...] [..] Your earthiness, combined with your emphasis on human relationship, can make you a little narrow and unwilling to appreciate things outside the realm of your own work and family. Your danger lies in a tendency toward cramped vision, because your feelings of empathy only [...] 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 deal with the ordinary fears which plague so many people, and which drive them to erect elaborate defensive structures against injury, by staring your fears in the face and putting yourself in precisely the position you are so afraid of; and the fears have a tendency [...] [..] You thus have considerable compassion for the inner torments of others because you know your own so well, and have found a way to come to terms with them. People do not shock you, whatever their story, and you might make a fine counselor or psychotherapist because you can [...] Hidden traits In contrast to your realistic view of life and people, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama; and this hidden side of you contains all those hopes, aspirations and fantasies which are excluded from your conscious personality because you are so determined [...] A minor character [..] You fear and despise wanton anarchy and chaos, and will never willingly destroy something simply because you disapprove of it; rather, if you feel that something needs changing, you will work slowly and carefully to inaugurate better conditions while still preserving what [...] 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 worked hard to accept your own limits, and to make the best of what life offers you without complaint. This has made you very strong and mature; but somewhere along the line you seem to have lost your soul. Therefore you are drawn to those women who appear to embody the qualities of soul - faith in life's fairness, trust in love, and a deep belief that people are intrinsically good at heart. You are drawn to romantic spirits who can bring the bright light of idealism into your life and [...] [..] You are ordinarily rather serious and realistic in love, disliking the more abandoned, irresponsible and promiscuous aspects of it; for you place considerable value on deep and honest emotional exchange and are also rather mistrustful of the instant love-at-first-sight impulse [...] 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".
