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 [...] 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 are often at odds with what might be called the collective norm, both because you are an idealist who refuses to accept that things cannot be changed, and because you resent having your liberty curtailed by rules which have been designed by the herd for the herd. You [...] Although time and age will no doubt mellow you somewhat, you possess a restless imagination which demands that the present be ceaselessly improved upon; and this vision will probably drive you all your life. As soon as you have achieved something, or arrived somewhere, [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those qualities which really belong to you, but which you have necessarily had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to remain firmly your own person and committed to your own unique path. The shadow-side of you, [...] A minor character [..] Even if you carry considerable worldly responsibilities, you carry them lightly, always feeling as though somehow it isn't yet the real thing, but only a practise run. Thus you tend to live a kind of provisional life, never fully contented, never fully arrived. This quality [...] 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. Your pride, self-sufficiency and vivid individualism make you need the balance of a woman who is on comfortable terms with the collective and who knows how to blend easily and gently with others in any social situation. Such a relationship can work very well for you, since you have much to offer such a woman through the example of your courage and style; and in turn you need a partner who can help you to face your own deep unconscious loneliness and need to belong. But you need to be very careful [...] [..] You know how to let your woman exist as a separate individual independent of your need of her, which means that you are deeply tolerant - even when you are feeling angry or offended. Your partner's idiosyncrasies do not surprise you, for you know that it takes all kinds [...] 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".
