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". There is a quality of great tension and power to your personality, because you live with a constant inner conflict. You are an intensely physical person, with considerable sensual appetites and a strong need for material achievement. Yet at the same time you are an idealist and a romantic, constantly pursuing an inner vision of some glorious world in which the characters out of fairy tales come alive and in which you are the bearer of a unique and divinely inspired destiny. These two extremes [...] 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. Ancient Greek philosophy postulated that the human intellect was divine; and although you are no doubt too rational to attribute mystical origins and powers to the mind, reason is virtually a god to you. You tend to think in clear, well-organised patterns, and possess [...] [..] Your memory is also excellent, and whatever your chosen field of endeavour, your mind is like an invisible computer which stores endless lists of information going back over years. Your problem is that, because you have embraced the rational and factual side of life so [...] Hidden traits In contrast to the logical, highly disciplined and self-controlled nature which you habitually show the world, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama; and this hidden side of you contains all those attributes which you have of necessity excluded from your [...] A minor character [..] Reality for you consists of what you can see, touch, smell, taste, hear, and put in the bank; and although you love physical beauty wherever you find it - in a person, a work of art, or in nature - you do not become distressed by visions of unattainable perfection or aspirations [...] 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. Because you insist that everything in life be clear, logical and easy to organise, you are inevitably attracted to the one thing which you cannot analyse quite so easily: the intuitive or imaginative man who perpetually fascinates you because his real nature perpetually eludes you. You are likely to be drawn into relationships with artistic types, or with moody and rather introverted natures who cannot and will not explain themselves and their feelings to you, but who in fact are excellent complements [...] [..] There is a kind of spark which is kindled in you only when you meet resistance or refusal to compromise in a man as strong as you are, whom you know you cannot dominate; and equally, there is something in you which will try to dominate in any intimate relationship. Thus your [...] 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".
