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". Your nature is a practical one, and you possess an excellent relationship to what we call the real world. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your realism and your need to express your imagination and find some inner meaning which might validate your efforts. You have the gift of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting energy on fantasies on how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams into actualities; [...] 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 are perpetually aware that there is some purpose to your life - but its definition is always, somehow, just out of reach. Thus you are a determined and conscientious seeker after paths which will open that elusive door for you, reveal the divine plan which you strive [...] [..] Because you are a practical person, and tend to be almost punctilious about mundane responsibilities and obligations, you probably spent quite a large portion of your early life expressing rather traditional values - perhaps holding together a family, raising children, or [...] Hidden traits [..] This figure contains all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour so that you can live according to the high principles in which you believe. The essential qualities of your shadow-side are an intense self-centredness and a [...] A minor character [..] Everyone is worthwhile to you on some level and you enjoy meeting all kinds of people in all sorts of situations - on trains and planes, in cafes and restaurants, and wherever a few exchanges of ordinary conversation convey to you the experience that you have a relationship [...] 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 your own nature is paradoxical, divided equally between your mystical aspirations and your need for material stability, your relationship life tends to be rather complicated. You are likely to make a relatively conventional kind of partnership in the early part of life, with someone who shares your desire for security and a comfortable home and family life. If you have made a partnership of this kind and it has endured through the many changes which have occurred within you, then you are [...] [..] Therefore you should always strive to take relationship commitments seriously, and not pretend to be more independent and detached about love and intimacy than you actually are. If you have had a painful experience in the past, where the depth of your need for closeness [...] 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".
