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 are one of the world's true romantics, for your intensely active imagination must always inject into ordinary circumstances an aura of meaning, potential and purpose without which you find daily life inconsequential and sometimes suffocating. The great strength of your nature lies in your well-developed relationship to the creative power of the unconscious, which allows you to look into the future and envisage potentials which are not immediately apparent in the present. Because of this, you [...] [..] You may also use your mental and imaginative abilities to defend yourself against the threatening world of intimate relationships, where you often find commitment to be a problem and where you can only deal with unpleasant or demanding emotional encounters through a species [...] 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. [..] Whether your interests are more cerebral (political or philosophical), or concerned with cultural events and trends (the latest best-selling novel, the new play, the innovative opera production), or an expression of more extraverted activities (sport, fashion), you are always [...] [..] Because you are neither arrogant nor self-seeking, you can permit this without feeling demeaned, as long as the objective is reached; and therefore you are a formidable person when it comes to organisation work and the manipulation of group dynamics. You do not often think [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to pursue your fulfilling personal and professional involvements with others. Your shadow-side is not the humanitarian and humanist that [...] A minor character [..] Plato wrote that 95% of the cosmos was under the governorship of Reason, and an annoying and recalcitrant 5% under the dominance of Chaos. When you are confronted with the other 5% (which has a nasty tendency to creep in despite your efforts), you tend to either turn your [...] 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 are naturally gregarious and define yourself by the social contacts you make and the group with which you identify, you are intrigued by those who stand alone, who do not seem to be part of any recognisable social stratum and who appear to be sustained by some mysterious inner strength. You draw people out readily with your gift of easy conversation, but ultimately only those whom you can never really know or penetrate will hold your heart and your imagination. A more introverted partner [...] [..] If you have a partner who is by nature more emotionally dependent or domestically focussed than you, this open and friendly quality can cause some problems; and you need to be very clear and honest with yourself about just what kind of relationship arrangements you need, [...] 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".
