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 [...] [..] The night-world of dreams could provide a fruitful and fascinating path to your inner life. Try to take your eyes off the ground occasionally, so that you can discover that "inner" is just as real as "outer", and "subjective" just as valuable as "objective". When you can [...] 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. [..] When you are confronted with the other 5% (which has a nasty tendency to creep in despite your efforts), you tend to either turn your back upon it and ignore it, or set about trying to clean it up. You are likely to be attracted to beautiful philosophies as well as beautiful [...] [..] This is not because you dislike people, but because you prefer them in small doses where the encounter can be designed and directed like a good play, after which the curtain comes down leaving you with the memory of a pleasurable encounter and your own well-ordered solitude [...] Hidden traits [..] Yet no one, including you, can ever be perfect, and what you sometimes call ugly and unworthy may in fact contain qualities which you badly need. Your shadow-side can offer you a toughness and resilience that you sometimes lack because of your fragile and otherworldly sensitivity; [...] A minor character [..] You instinctively know how to blend with the crowd, and pick up almost telepathically the unwritten laws of any social milieu - what is "done" and "not done". You are uncomfortable if you become isolated in an impersonal big city with no one to meet or telephone, or if [...] 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. Your intellectual and aesthetic gifts form one of the most interesting and attractive dimensions of your personality. They also tend to make you a little precious, because you want your world to be perfect and orderly and beautiful; and the result of this is that you are inevitably attracted to a more primitive type of partner, perhaps less articulate and not so well educated, but nevertheless warmer, more uninhibited, more honest, and more direct. Such a relationship can work very well for 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".
