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 possess the gift of a clear, strong and objective mind, and you are a lover of truth and integrity in all your dealings. You will always favour reason over chaos, and principles over personal reactions. But there is considerable conflict within you - a dilemma between your rational, detached spirit and your intense and sometimes overpowering feeling. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head -because it seems safer, more civilised, and more "decent" [...] Your considerable mental abilities combine with the gift of a rich imagination to produce a symbolic thinker, a philosopher, and a talented speculator. With this fruitful blend of talents, your clear and well-ordered assessments of life are supported by good hunches and [...] 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 [...] [..] This makes you a natural actor, whether you pursue this professionally or not; for you instinctively take on the colouration of the needs of the moment, absorbing others' discomfort, pain, happiness or enthusiasm, and turning these feelings into further fuel on which your [...] Hidden traits [..] This other character lives in the shadow-world of the unconscious, and when you encounter it within yourself it is likely to make you feel embarrassed, inadequate and unsure of yourself. Yet you need a better relationship with this secret shadow-side of your personality [...] A minor character [..] You tend to dwell up in the air a lot, but that is not because you are naive or stupid. It is just that what other people call real life does not agree with your picture of things. In a crisis or emergency you can be practical enough, and somehow your survival instincts [...] 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 are so in love with the creatures of your imagination that, inevitably, you are going to be drawn in your outer life to men who are more firmly grounded in mundane reality than you. You need a partner who has made friends with the practical concerns of life, and who has the gift of formulating and articulating ideas and attitudes; for such a man can help you to learn to put your own mundane life in order and see it in a clearer perspective. Such a relationship can be very good for you, since [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
