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 also highly perceptive about people without expecting too much from them, and possess much gentleness and delicacy in all your relationship dealings. You might make an excellent parent and a fine psychotherapist, counselor or personnel supervisor; or, if you turn [...] 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 know that nothing in life is free, and have learned the lesson of putting into things what you hope to get out of them; and you are not surprised when life turns out to be unfair sometimes and you are cheated of your deserved rewards, for that is simply how it is. You [...] [..] Somebody will sooner or later take advantage of a fool, and most people, given the right price and the right amount of unconsciousness, can be bought - this is deeply embedded in your personal philosophy (like P. T. Barnum, you believe that a sucker is born every minute), [...] Hidden traits [..] There is a secret romantic within you, full of nebulous and ethereal visions, childlike and innocent, who looks out at life and sees nothing but what is lovely and good and kind; and you have a great dilemma with this shadow-side, because while you know that its vision is [...] A minor character [..] You do not lack imagination, or appreciation of the new; but you are inclined to be cautious about most things, preferring to wait and see whether an idea, a feeling or a person are really what they seem, or whether they are a brief "flash in the pan" without substance. You [...] 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. In the process of making peace with the harsh limits of reality, you have had to sacrifice many of your dreams - particularly your dreams of romantic love. Yet you are magnetically drawn to those men who can somehow help you to restore your faith in life - men who are themselves incurable romantics and who will never compromise their ideals in the ways that you have. Your realism gives you great strength and self-sufficiency; yet you have paid a price for it in the loss of your inner child with [...] [..] Because of this gift of deep compassion for the darker aspects of love, you can be truly understanding and containing of your partner's complexity; and even when you have been deeply hurt or are very angry, you still retain a secret sympathy for the things which drove him [...] VI. Paths toward Integration
