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 [...] [..] Life sometimes requires a tough survival instinct and a capacity to cope alone if necessary. Your need to express your creative imagination through relationships with others may cause you to fear the cold self-sufficiency that situations sometimes demand of you. Occasionally [...] 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 would do anything for those you love, and tend to forgive them almost anything; and however much you are hurt and disappointed, you do not lose your belief in the importance of kindness or in the worthiness of others. You take little pleasure in that absolute autonomy [...] [..] There is a wide gap between your noble and rather poignant ideal of selfless love and the actual nature of human beings (which includes yourself); and because you are reluctant to bridge this gap by behaving in a normally selfish way occasionally yourself, you set yourself [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those qualities which are really part of you but which you have excluded or suppressed from your conscious values and behaviour in order to preserve the relationships and the kind self-image which are so important to you. Your shadow-side [...] A minor character [..] Although you enjoy the company of other people, and attract them easily because of the vitality of your personality, you are quite incapable of compromising your ideals and freedom of action for very long in order to please anyone - even those you love most. You resent [...] 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 admire strong, self-contained people and are likely to find yourself in a relationship with just such a man. This can be a good complement for you, since your gifts are subtler and lie in the realm of the heart; and you can offer considerable compassion and loyalty to your partner while benefitting from the example of his self-reliance. But you will need to fight against an unfortunate tendency to make your partner responsible for your sense of self-worth, as though you had no value in 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".
