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 basic nature is a realistic one, and your characteristic way of dealing with the situations life brings you is to meet them honestly and then to organise them until they are manageable. You possess sound practical abilities, and are gifted with a good "reality function"; and you have the knack of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting your energies in fantasising how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams [...] [..] However, one of your chief dilemmas in life still remains the troublesome inner world of the imagination - and your clear mind and naturally pragmatic nature may make it difficult for you to deal with any experience which you cannot rationally understand. Your intellect [...] 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. [..] Fatalistic philosophies are not for you; nor are those ideologies that transfer ultimate responsibility for one's life and one's destiny onto society, the state, or any other external agency. You are convinced that you possess the capacity to make your life into anything [...] [..] One or both of your parents was absent, unresponsive or cold, and it seems that you grew up with much loneliness and were forced at too young an age to take up responsibilities and draw on your own resources. This rather bleak childhood experience has made you determined [...] Hidden traits [..] Your shadow-side is a good deal more dependent, confused and lost than you are; and it contains a liberal dose of passivity and a kind of childlike trust that someone else will come along and take care of things. This secret dimension of your personality is all that you [...] A minor character Although you are no doubt too rational to attribute mystical origins and powers to the mind, reason is virtually a god to you. You tend to think in clear, well-organised patterns, and possess the ability to view any situation from a detached perspective and dissect it [...] 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 an independent, courageous and self-sufficient personality. Because you are also human, you need a partner who can relate to you even when you are not being a heroine, and who can offer you gentleness, tenderness and emotional support. Although you prefer others to see you as complete unto yourself, you are not, and you know it. You are drawn to men who are able to express their feelings, and who are not ashamed of needing others. Such a companion can be very good for you - provided 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".
