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. [..] 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 because what matters to you does not make sense to them and what is important [...] You possess the unique combination of a mystical longing to offer up your soul and your heart to something higher and more transpersonal, and a perception of life as theatre, where every person becomes a symbolic character and every situation part of a grand dramatic story. Relationships [...] Hidden traits [..] Although you tend to have a certain secret contempt for those unimaginative people who cannot soar into the transpersonal realm nor intuitively recognise the hidden significance underlying every experience, you too have a banal, ordinary and materialistic side. But this [...] A minor character [..] You are a sensitive and idealistic person who is not wholly comfortable within the limits and boundaries of material life; for, like Plato, you crave the Good, the True and the Beautiful - and if you are unable to find glimpses of your dream amidst the mundane circumstances [...] 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 live so close to the immense and fecund depths of the unconscious that you can easily become inflated - which means that, accustomed to the treasures of the imagination, you can easily begin to feel that you are too special, unique and gifted to be bothered with more mundane concerns. You have learned to flow with your fantasies, and have therefore not developed the capacity for clear analysis and decision-making in the outer world. Because your nature is so strongly marked by poetry and romance, [...] [..] You may justify your profligacy by means of an ideology which says that people should not possess each other, or a spiritual vision which says that you need the right soul-mate, or an aesthetic ideal which tells you that your present companion is not quite perfect. Or you [...] 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".
