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 may be the mainstay of a company or a household because there is no problem that daunts you once you can see and understand it. You combine insight with the capacity for action, and can deal with just about any concrete challenge that life brings. You also possess [...] 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 tend to have a lot of friends - or, at least, a lot of acquaintances whom you call friends, although few of them might really have much in common with you - but you would rather have some relatively congenial company than no company at all, even if the company is not [...] [..] You have the humility to know that you might be wrong, and that others might see something you have missed; and this natural humility is devoid of pretense or theatrical self-effacement, but validates the importance of others to help you reach the clearest, most balanced [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden dimension of your personality contains all those qualities which you have excluded or repressed from your conscious values and behaviour in order to preserve your network of friendships and your feeling of security within your peer group. The unconscious shadow-side [...] A minor character [..] Whether your interests are more cerebral or concerned with cultural events and trends or an expression of more extraverted activities like sport and fashion, you are always one of the first to take up new things and people, and one of the last to leave the party. You genuinely [...] 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 creative and individualistic women, and are drawn to those who are independent and strong enough to help you develop more confidence in your own vision and ideas. You yourself are at your best when surrounded by a group of like-minded souls, and are therefore naturally attracted to your complement: the person who can stand alone. Such a relationship can work very well for you. But you need to be careful not to efface yourself too much, for if you idealise your partner's originality [...] [..] The dominant theme of this profligate quality is that more is better, and that love ought to be fun rather than a serious business with mortgages, responsibilities and in-laws over for Sunday night dinner. Thus you need more than a deep commitment in love; you also need [...] 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".
