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" [...] [..] 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. [..] When Plato wrote that 95% of the cosmos was under the governorship of Reason, and an annoying and recalcitrant 5% under the dominance of Chaos, he expressed a vision which is very close to your heart; for some of your most fulfilling moments come when you are able to see [...] [..] The higher you climb into your ivory tower of aesthetic perfection, the more vulnerable you are to the darker, baser aspects of life - both in a negative way (where you can become easily depressed and even ill if you are forced to endure ugliness for too long), and as a [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those rougher qualities which you have excluded from your conscious values and behaviour in order to preserve the beauty, harmony and order of your lifestyle. Your shadow-side is a good deal coarser than you are, full of raw passions [...] A minor character [..] In a crisis or emergency you can be practical enough, and somehow your survival instincts inevitably attract to you precisely the right people and situations to help you cope - although you would disclaim any responsibility for this, preferring to believe that it is just [...] 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. Your intellectual and aesthetic gifts form one of the most interesting and attractive dimensions of your personality. They also tend to make you a little precious, because you want your world to be perfect and orderly and beautiful; and the result of this is that you are inevitably attracted to a more primitive type of partner, perhaps less articulate and not so well educated, but nevertheless warmer, more uninhibited, more honest, and more direct. Such a relationship can work very well for you, [...] [..] It is very likely that you will project this rather primitive side of your nature onto your partner - which means that you will unconsciously push her into acting out the aggression and provocativeness which you really feel but which you hate to show in case anyone might [...] 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".
