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 [...] [..] What "other people" think is entirely too important to you, and you will need to learn to risk expressing your own highly original ideas and viewpoints - even if these are apparently "odd" in conventional terms - if you are to ever feel truly independent and capable of coping [...] 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 genuinely like people - provided they are not too depressing and refrain from smearing their emotional problems all over the happy atmosphere - and you are interested in what others have to say; and generally people like you too, for you possess a happy spirit that generates [...] [..] However, people who seek you too persistently are likely to discover that you vanish whenever you have the feeling that you are being lionised or possessed. Despite your genuine concern for human welfare, you do not like your personal boundaries violated, although you are [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you comprises all those qualities which you have had to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to pursue your fulfilling personal and professional involvements with others. Your shadow-side is not the humanitarian and humanist that [...] A minor character [..] You deal with the ordinary fears which plague so many people, and which drive them to erect elaborate defensive structures against injury, by staring your fears in the face and putting yourself in precisely the position you are so afraid of; and the fears have a tendency [...] 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 tend to define yourself and your worth according to the social group in which you function, and the friends you gather around you. But you are likely to be deeply attracted to those women who somehow do not seem to "fit" - the loners or the outsiders who belong to no recognisable type or group, and who apparently draw their strength and their confidence from some mysterious inner source. Such a woman will endlessly fascinate and challenge you, because you are used to drawing people out through [...] [..] You are also comfortable with the fact that it is easier to maintain a relationship when you and your partner are not pressured by financial difficulties, for nothing destroys love faster than anxieties about money. Therefore you are prepared to work hard with your woman [...] 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".
