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". You respond to life's challenges with a clear, strong and objective mind, which serves you as a good and reliable friend and which provides you with powerful ethical precepts, uncluttered vision and a love of truth. Another way of describing your nature might be to say that you tend to live in your head most of the time - with all the virtues and problems that this high and noble domicile includes. "Living in the head" does not necessarily make you an intellectual or a good academic student, although [...] [..] You need to be careful not to devalue the importance of your ordinary daily life and your body, for otherwise your flights into the rich world of fantasy and vision will become a defense against your great vulnerability in relationship. Your contempt for the banal and the [...] 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 mastered the art of accepting reality, and because you have few illusions about life and people, you have an almost frightening degree of inner strength and self-sufficiency which allows you to weather the most difficult of circumstances. You know that nothing [...] [..] But you are deeply mistrustful, partially because you have looked with rare honesty at your own ambiguities; and your mistrust is not of the paranoid variety, but based on an accurate perception of people's shadow-sides. Somebody will sooner or later take advantage of a [...] Hidden traits [..] There is a secret romantic within you, full of nebulous and ethereal visions, childlike and innocent, who looks out at life and sees nothing but what is lovely and good and kind; and you have a great dilemma with this shadow-side, because while you know that its vision is [...] A minor character [..] 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, [...] 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 have worked hard to accept your own limits, and to make the best of what life offers you without complaint. This has made you very strong and mature; but somewhere along the line you seem to have lost your soul. Therefore you are drawn to those women who appear to embody the qualities of soul - faith in life's fairness, trust in love, and a deep belief that people are intrinsically good at heart. You are drawn to romantic spirits who can bring the bright light of idealism into your life and [...] [..] You are apt to change partners more than once in your life because your needs are in contradiction to your ideal of your own strength, and because you have an unfortunate tendency to either leave relationships when you begin to need your woman too much, or to drive your [...] 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".
