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 may also be gifted at working with others, because you possess not only insight but also the patience to wait for people to take their own time to develop; and you might make an excellent teacher or counselor or healer because you never expect more from people than what [...] 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 [...] [..] Thus your childhood has taught you not to expect too much from anyone, and to pay for everything you get. You are a naturally proud person, and rather than express the deep vulnerability you feel, you have become self-contained and a little mistrustful. But you are not [...] Hidden traits [..] In your efforts to rely solely on your own resources for your survival and your achievements in life, you have of necessity had to exclude certain dimensions of yourself; and this other, hidden side of you poses you with a great challenge. For this is your Achilles' heel, [...] A minor character [..] 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 [...] 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 deep, solitary and unfathomable, and tend to be quite self-reliant and happy with your own company. But you are magnetically attracted to those more gregarious, outgoing women who exude charm and warmth and who seem to effortlessly make friends. Such a woman is a good balance for you, and this kind of relationship can be very fulfilling; for you can offer your partner a glimpse into the importance of inner resources and self-sufficiency, while she in turn can help you to feel more like [...] VI.
