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. [..] For this reason you function at your best when working in a cooperative capacity - linking people together and smoothing over dilemmas, supervising group networks and activities, and interpreting to others the directions of more aggressive souls. You love the feeling that [...] [..] Another way of putting this might be to say that on a deep level you expect too much - both of yourself and of others - although in behaviour you are usually the most understanding of souls, and the most tolerant. But you do not seem to wish to learn the hard lesson of [...] Hidden traits [..] It is extremely important that you face this hidden side of you; for although it threatens your high ideals of love and sacrifice, it is necessary for your survival and your autonomy. It is also necessary for the psychological well-being of your children, who unlike the [...] A minor character [..] You have a way of cutting through others' mental and emotional fog to get at the truth, and thus you are often the one to whom others turn when they need clarity, objectivity and direction. You are rarely to be found in an emotional muddle yourself, for you constantly analyse [...] 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 are a warm-hearted, sympathetic person who hates hurting others, your own personal life may seem a little too full of sad episodes where your love was not appreciated and where you came away feeling hurt and forlorn - even if you did the leaving. You are rather more prone than many people to such a relationship pattern. But this is not because a bad fate sits over you. You are as capable, and as deserving, of a fulfilling and happy relationship as anyone else. Instead of feeling terribly [...] [..] You love with a rather devotional quality, and you need to make sure that you do not spread yourself on the ground like a carpet for your partner to walk on simply because you are so generous-hearted. Your woman can easily take advantage of you without meaning to; and you [...] 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".
