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 basic nature is a realistic one, and your characteristic way of dealing with the situations life brings you is to meet them honestly and then to organise them until they are manageable. You possess sound practical abilities, and are gifted with a good "reality function"; and you have the knack of being able to make the best of your resources without wasting your energies in fantasising how it "might" have been if only the world were different. You are a builder and know how to turn dreams [...] [..] You are especially able at administration and planning, and you are a natural problem-solver who may offer invaluable service to more intuitive types who have got into trouble because of their poor grasp of practical issues. You may be the mainstay of a company or a household [...] 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 have made peace with the world's requirements, and intend to enjoy to the full whatever life makes available to you. Reality for you consists of what you can see, touch, smell, taste, hear, and put in the bank; and although you love physical beauty wherever you find [...] [..] You rely on physical and emotional comfort rather than the abstract realm of the mind and the spirit for your fulfillment, and you are capable of expending considerable effort to obtain what you feel you need - including other people, whom you tend to put in the same category [...] Hidden traits [..] This shadow-side of you focuses its eyes not on the earth, but rather, on heaven; and if you remain unconscious of it, it can gnaw away at you in the form of an overdeveloped Old Testament conscience which denigrates your preoccupation with your own pleasures and your devotion [...] A minor character [..] You have little patience with hypocrisy, and are not averse to directly challenging and, if necessary, offending those who offend you by their refusal to be themselves. You enjoy luxury and pleasure and are unafraid of calling desire by its name and unashamedly pursuing [...] 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. The women who draw your powerfully physical personality are somehow more ethereal than you, and seem to personify some mystical or poetic realm which you fear entering yet which nevertheless fascinates you. A relationship with such a woman can be very creative for you, since a more imaginative partner can help you to trust your own inner vision and spirit and to treat these invisible things with value; and you in turn can offer containment and a bridge to practical life. But you need to be careful [...] [..] You are not afraid of experiencing emotions which others might consider unconventional, destructive or dark, although naturally you might not always choose to put these emotions in the shop window for your woman to see. Because of this gift of deep compassion for the darker [...] 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".
