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 not only a realist; you also possess considerable sensitivity to others, and your ability to respond creatively to the emotional needs of the moment combines with your excellent practical skills and common sense to produce rare gifts of tact, diplomacy and capacity [...] 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. [..] Whether your interests are more cerebral (political or philosophical), or concerned with cultural events and trends (the latest best-selling novel, the new play, the innovative opera production), or an expression of more extraverted activities (sport, fashion), you are always [...] [..] However, people who seek you too persistently are likely to discover that you vanish whenever you have the feeling that you are being lionised or possessed. Despite your genuine concern for human welfare, you do not like your personal boundaries violated, although you are [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to pursue your fulfilling personal and professional involvements with others. Your shadow-side is not the humanitarian and humanist that [...] A minor character [..] 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 putting yourself in precisely the position you are so afraid of; and the fears have a tendency [...] 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 you are naturally gregarious and define yourself by the social contacts you make and the group with which you identify, you are intrigued by those who stand alone, who do not seem to be part of any recognisable social stratum and who appear to be sustained by some mysterious inner strength. You draw people out readily with your gift of easy conversation, but ultimately only those whom you can never really know or penetrate will hold your heart and your imagination. A more introverted partner [...] Loyalty and the sanctity of an established relationship are very high on your list of priorities when it comes to love. You are realistic enough not to expect a marriage made in heaven, and understand enough about the limits of others not to expect a fantasy of perfect [...] 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".
