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; [...] [..] You are capable of a great deal of patience and loyalty, and may take much pleasure from work which involves helping or caring for others, or in assisting them to develop their creative capacities. You are also highly perceptive about people without expecting too much from [...] 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 merely pick yourself up and try again, storing the lesson carefully in your growing files. You deal with the ordinary fears which plague so many people, and which drive them to erect elaborate defensive structures against injury, by staring your fears in the face and [...] [..] Somebody will sooner or later take advantage of a fool, and most people, given the right price and the right amount of unconsciousness, can be bought - this is deeply embedded in your personal philosophy (like P. T. Barnum, you believe that a sucker is born every minute), [...] Hidden traits [..] There is a secret romantic within you, full of nebulous and ethereal visions, childlike and innocent, who looks out at life and sees nothing but what is lovely and good and kind; and you have a great dilemma with this shadow-side, because while you know that its vision is [...] A minor character [..] You are rarely to be found in an emotional muddle yourself, for you constantly analyse your feelings and if necessary simply disconnect from them if they threaten to trouble you too much. You are a great believer in the healing power of objective thought, and are convinced [...] 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 worked hard to accept your own limits, and to make the best of what life offers you without complaint. This has made you very strong and mature; but somewhere along the line you seem to have lost your soul. Therefore you are drawn to those women who appear to embody the qualities of soul - faith in life's fairness, trust in love, and a deep belief that people are intrinsically good at heart. You are drawn to romantic spirits who can bring the bright light of idealism into your life and [...] [..] There is a level where you give away your sense of self-worth - albeit unconsciously -and make your woman the one who reflects back to you your lovability or lack thereof. No doubt you fight very hard against this hidden tendency, and create all kinds of barriers and defenses [...] 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".
