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; [...] 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 take little pleasure in that absolute autonomy and freedom to direct your own life that many people claim they want; for your chief pleasure springs from living for and through others. You are not inclined toward cold ambition, or the need to be somebody in the world's [...] [..] This is not because you have a bad fate, or are unlovable, but because you sometimes try to be a little too saintly and self-effacing; and you have a way of inadvertently making other people feel guilty and trapped because you have made them responsible for your happiness [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more self-centred and ruthless than you might think, and if you remain unconscious of its independent and forceful qualities then you are likely to imagine that you see these attributes in all those people by whom you are fascinated, positively [...] A minor character [..] You are perpetually aware that there is some purpose to your life - but its definition is always, somehow, just out of reach. You are not spiritual in the sense of being content to bask in a subjective experience of oneness with life, or religious in the sense of Sunday [...] 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 admire strong, self-contained people and are likely to find yourself in a relationship with just such a man. This can be a good complement for you, since your gifts are subtler and lie in the realm of the heart; and you can offer considerable compassion and loyalty to your partner while benefitting from the example of his self-reliance. But you will need to fight against an unfortunate tendency to make your partner responsible for your sense of self-worth, as though you had no value in your [...] 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".
