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". The world of human relationship means everything to you, and the feelings of others are primary on the scale of your values. Yet you are often caught in a conflict between your need for warmth and closeness with others, and your need for privacy, space and the freedom to pursue your own interests - which often involve abstract concepts quite divorced from human reality. You have great compassion for the problems of others, and may often find yourself playing the role of the good mother or father [...] 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. [..] 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, [...] [..] You would rather do it yourself, thank you very much, for you do not want to be obligated and therefore potentially hurt or humiliated through dependency of any kind. These two qualities -your need to mythologise your life with an image of heroism and your deep mistrust [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those qualities which you have to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to retain a feeling of autonomy and independence. Your shadow-side is a good deal more dependent, confused and lost than you are; and it contains [...] A minor character Your reality is an enchanted domain, drawing its sustenance from an inner reservoir of images and dreams, and springing from a deep, non-rational conviction of some numinous power at work not only in your own creative efforts but in the whole of life. It is not that 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. Because you love rescuing damsels in distress, you will naturally find one to rescue, sooner or later. And you do in fact need a gentler, less forceful and more emotionally forthcoming partner to complement your rather fierce pride and independence. You need to protect someone, and deserve a woman who will appreciate the rather heroic ways in which you show your love. But having rescued her, you need to be careful not to feel bewildered, abandoned and resentful if she shows increasing signs of [...] [..] For if you cannot make the required sacrifice of your pride, and let your partner see your longing to losing yourself in feelings of devotion, then you may have to make a different kind of sacrifice - the loss of the relationship itself, either because you project all these [...] 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".
