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 possess the gift of a clear, strong and objective mind, and you are a lover of truth and integrity in all your dealings. You will always favour reason over chaos, and principles over personal reactions. But there is considerable conflict within you - a dilemma between your rational, detached spirit and your intense and sometimes overpowering feeling. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head -because it seems safer, more civilised, and more "decent" [...] [..] With this fruitful blend of talents, your clear and well-ordered assessments of life are supported by good hunches and a gift of being able to relate diverse concepts and ideas in a coherent and meaningful design. Your thinking is not arid or cold, but full of richness, [...] 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 are a sensitive and idealistic person who is not wholly comfortable within the limits and boundaries of material life; for, like Plato, you crave the Good, the True and the Beautiful - and if you are unable to find glimpses of your dream amidst the mundane circumstances [...] [..] Although you are sometimes capable of sudden and intense physical desires, whatever stirs you sensually must also be aesthetically pleasing and suggestive of some transcendent meaning. You seek perfection in everything, which means that you are bound to be disappointed frequently, [...] Hidden traits [..] The shadow-side of your nature can be an inner enemy if you deny it value, working against you through difficulties with health, money and mundane circumstances. This inner enemy, because you turn your back on it within yourself, may appear to belong to others in the world [...] A minor character [..] You are part of a human family, and your sense of purpose and worth is derived chiefly from the feeling that you have contributed something to that family. With your strong impulse to reform people in accord with your ideals, you incline toward more revolutionary or radical [...] 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 live in a magical, ethereal world; and you need the stabilizing balance of men who seem firmly rooted on the earth and at home in their bodies. Such a person can offer you a very workable relationship, for he can help you to appreciate your own considerable but usually repressed sensuality. You need a partner who is not afraid of the physical realm, for your other-worldly personality requires balance and a bridge into ordinary life. In turn you can help such a partner to see and validate [...] 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".
