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 [...] [..] However, your deepest dilemma in life remains the troublesome world of the emotions, and your common sense and realism may combine with your strongly emphasised rationality to make you intolerant of the importance of the inner world. You may be resistant to the value of [...] 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 genuinely like people - provided they are not too depressing and refrain from smearing their emotional problems all over the happy atmosphere - and you are interested in what others have to say; and generally people like you too, for you possess a happy spirit that generates [...] [..] You make full and excellent use of the royal "we", although for you "we" means the group. 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, [...] Hidden traits [..] But if you cannot make friends with this withdrawn and deeply intraverted dimension of your personality, you will lose a valuable part of yourself - the part that recognises limits, and validates your need for privacy, and supports your pursuit of hobbies and interests that [...] A minor character [..] Everyone is worthwhile to you on some level and you enjoy meeting all kinds of people in all sorts of situations - on trains and planes, in cafes and restaurants, and wherever a few exchanges of ordinary conversation convey to you the experience that you have a relationship [...] 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 [...] [..] Not only your partner but all your friends are likely to appreciate your sympathetic nature. What might not be quite so appreciated is your tendency to be so sympathetic that you get pulled into romantic and sexual entanglements out of pity and the inability to say no - [...] 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".
