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" [...] [..] You need to be careful not to devalue the importance of your ordinary daily life and your body, for otherwise your flights into the rich world of fantasy and vision will become a defense against your great vulnerability in relationship. Your contempt for the banal and the [...] 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 will never settle into stagnant complacency dreaming of the glories of your youth, for you carry your youth whithin you and will be receptive to change and new ideas all your life. But you also have a tendency to leave behind those projects and people with which you [...] [..] People fascinate you - not from a deep psychological perspective, but as interesting characters worthy of study, imitation, and sometimes sly mockery. You love romantic interludes, but dislike the less flamboyant aspects of relationship, for you are a great believer in [...] Hidden traits [..] The shadow-side of your personality is considerably more conventional, conservative and traditional than you might like to admit; and if you consider honestly the sometimes disproportionately negative reactions that you display when confronted with such qualities in other [...] A minor character [..] Because your allegiance to the imaginal world is so strong, your adherence to the conventional codes of living is sporadic; and many people are likely to think you a little peculiar or eccentric. On the deepest level you are wedded to some inner voice, and any partner in [...] 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 have a vibrant and childlike spirit, and tend to live in the ethers rather than on the earth. You are therefore drawn to the man who can offer you security, stability, and a firm relationship with practical life. You rather like being fathered, for you often want protection from the boredom and banality of the mundane world. But having found such a partner, you have a tendency to start feeling stifled, and to begin looking about in case a knight on a white horse is anywhere within range who [...] [..] It would be better to be honest about your own restlessness, for there are many levels on which your adventurous spirit can be lived out, and some of them can include a stable relationship and do not necessitate deceit and betrayal. But it would be better not to repress [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
