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 [...] [..] Your imagination requires more validation and acknowledgement, and you need to risk playing and trying new things which do not always yield practical rewards or fit society's picture of what a "normal" person does. Through a better relationship with the realm of the imagination [...] 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 you, there is no such thing as a blameless victim, because, as the poet William Ernest Henley once wrote: "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." And if a person seems to be unable to take charge of his or her life, well, then, in your estimation, [...] [..] This rather bleak childhood experience has made you determined never to ask anyone for anything, for you do not expect to receive it without having to sacrifice your autonomy and your pride. You would rather do it yourself, thank you very much, for you do not want to be [...] Hidden traits [..] This hidden side of you contains all those qualities which you have to exclude from your conscious values and behaviour in order to retain a feeling of autonomy and independence. Your shadow-side is a good deal more dependent, confused and lost than you are; and it contains [...] A minor character [..] You are blunt, direct and honest, and you do not try to hide behind elaborate social veneers and posturings to mask who you are and what you want. You have little patience with hypocrisy, and are not averse to directly challenging and, if necessary, offending those who [...] 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 love rescuing damsels in distress, you will naturally find one to rescue, sooner or later. And you do in fact need a gentler, less forceful and more emotionally forthcoming partner to complement your rather fierce pride and independence. You need to protect someone, and deserve a woman who will appreciate the rather heroic ways in which you show your love. But having rescued her, you need to be careful not to feel bewildered, abandoned and resentful if she shows increasing signs of [...] [..] Otherwise you might be faithful from a sense of honour and idealism, but not from real inclination. It would be better to be honest about your own restlessness, for there are many levels on which your adventurous spirit can be lived out, and some of them can include a stable [...] 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".
