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 respond to life's challenges with a clear, strong and objective mind, which serves you as a good and reliable friend and which provides you with powerful ethical precepts, uncluttered vision and a love of truth. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head most of the time - with all the virtues and problems that this high and noble domicile includes. "Living in the head" does not necessarily make you an intellectual or a good academic student, although [...] [..] 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. [..] Life is a perpetual unfinished novel for you, in which anything could lie around the next corner; and even if you carry considerable worldly responsibilities, you carry them lightly, always feeling as though somehow it isn't yet the real thing, but only a practise run - [...] [..] The curious thing is that, if you are given enough of it, you are as capable as the next person of living a relatively peaceful life (at least, within limits); for you are not quite as wildly rebellious as you sometimes like to give the impression of being. But it is your [...] Hidden traits [..] The problem is that you strive to be a rebel, a forward-thinking and unique individualist; and you would have to make peace with a slightly less glossy, glamourous and stereotyped self-image if you are going to integrate your shadow. Yet upon this integration depends your [...] A minor character [..] You possess great quantities of sheer unadulterated vitality, and serve as a vivid example to others of the importance and value of living out one's own desires and fantasies regardless of whether they fit into conventional ideas of proper behaviour. You spend considerable [...] 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 [...] [..] Try to be more honest about your emotional needs, for dependency upon your partner does not mean the sacrifice of your own soul - or your own freedom in the deepest sense. It merely means that you too are human and can feel acutely lonely and isolated without the reliable [...] 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".
