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 [...] [..] You have a strong intuitive appreciation of symbols and their meaning, and could develop deep understanding in fields such as psychology or astrology, where ordered thinking and objectivity need to be combined with a "sixth sense" about people and their potential patterns [...] 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 genuinely like people - provided they are not too depressing and refrain from smearing their emotional problems all over the happy atmosphere - and you are interested in what others have to say; and generally people like you too, for you possess a happy spirit that generates [...] [..] However, people who seek you too persistently are likely to discover that you vanish whenever you have the feeling that you are being lionised or possessed. Despite your genuine concern for human welfare, you do not like your personal boundaries violated, although you are [...] Hidden traits In contrast to the sociable, articulate and outgoing qualities of your personality, there is another protagonist in your inner psychic drama. This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in [...] A minor character [..] For you, there is no such thing as a blameless victim, because, as the poet William Ernest Henley once wrote: "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." And if a person seems to be unable to take charge of his or her life, well, then, in your estimation, [...] 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. Because you are naturally gregarious and define yourself by the social contacts you make and the group with which you identify, you are intrigued by those who stand alone, who do not seem to be part of any recognisable social stratum and who appear to be sustained by some mysterious inner strength. You draw people out readily with your gift of easy conversation, but ultimately only those whom you can never really know or penetrate will hold your heart and your imagination. A more introverted partner [...] [..] No relationship, however passionate, will automatically remain mysterious and challenging if you do not nurture its unpredictability by frequent holidays and travel with your man, frequent absences from the domestic front with its endless responsibilities, and frequent admonitions [...] 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".
