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; [...] [..] This can help you to discern the general patterns and principles which underlie all human behaviour, so that you can learn to take things less personally and can become less dependent on others. In this way you can enter the inner world with maps which neutralise the anxiety [...] 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. Concepts such as "humanity" and "society", which are merely abstract terms to many people, are very meaningful to you. Humanity is not only an idea in your experience, but a living reality; and the events which touch your personal life are immediately translated into broader [...] [..] You have definite and well-formulated ideas about how the world ought to function, what people as a group need in order to express their potential, and so on; and when you are enthusing about your social and political ideals, you are clear, logical and make considerable [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden figure contains all those qualities which you have excluded from your values and your outer behaviour in order to retain the intellectual, emotional and physical freedom you crave. The shadow-side of your personality is considerably more conventional, conservative [...] A minor character [..] You are rarely to be found in an emotional muddle yourself, for you constantly analyse your feelings and if necessary simply disconnect from them if they threaten to trouble you too much. You are a great believer in the healing power of objective thought, and are convinced [...] 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 have strong opinions and considerable independence of character, you need and are attracted to men who can provide you with some continuity and containment. Your rather excitable and outward-looking personality is drawn to those quieter, more sensitive and often more introverted souls who prefer to dwell in the world of feeling and imagination, and who may be uninterested in political, sociological or spiritual concerns. Also, you may find yourself drawn into relationships with those [...] 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".
