Introduction

This is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek introduction to astrology, meant to

inform but also to entertain.

The perspective is North American.

The intention is to encourage the readers into further research and

interpretation.

I’ve included links to useful websites in the Travelogue section. These will

take the reader to limitless resources on the subject of astrology. You will be

able to calculate your own chart provided that you know your birth time, the

day and location.

You can learn about the branches of astrology covered in this text as well as

many techniques for predictive astrology.

Acknowledgements

As I explain the dynamics of their birth chart to my clients, some suggest

that I write a book.

This endeavor is for them.

From my beginning astrology classes in the early 70’s, given in the homes of

renowned astrologers in Lakewood and Rocky River, Ohio, to my present

state of independent study and readings, so many generous and supportive

peers and professionals helped me attain the knowledge and experience I

now possess.

Astrology is a field with possibly the most talented and inspired minds. It

has been my honor to be in their company and glean what I needed to know

from them.

They could not possibly teach me everything they know but they have

certainly taught me everything I know!

Libby and Laura were there for me so many times when I needed a sounding

board. They deserve a special Thank You!

Lastly, this is for George. His expertise made this possible. His vision

changed my life.

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 8 of 118

1 - The Planets, Their Symbolism and Meaning

The Moon

The MOON is the swiftest moving of the ten bodies we study. She moves

through all twelve signs about every twenty-eight days. She is perpetually in

motion.

Our everyday routines reflect her waxing and waning. The moon represents

the common, the ordinary, the everyday and its people.

Imagine the MOON cooking a big family dinner.

First, she investigates the cupboards and freezer looking for the needed

provisions. She will be selecting from meat, poultry, fish or vegetarian

choices. Then she decides if she will bake, boil, grill or sauté the main

course. It might even be a cold dish that she dreams up. Her New Moon

phase is much like the starting point of the meal.

At the First Quarter of the Moon, she will be busily putting together the

right side dishes and starting to think about a tasty dessert.

This is where she may encounter her first issues; the rice must be pulled off

quickly or it will overcook, or the potatoes need to be mashed just when the

gravy is starting to thicken.

If she resolves the problems that arise now, she can set the table and call

everyone in to eat.

As she lays out all the delicious fixings, we see how this resembles the Full

Moon phase.

This is where the efforts made from the start of the New Moon show their

greatest accomplishment. Just like the big ol’ Full Moon shining up in the

sky, the completed meal is ready to be consumed.

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 9 of 118

She can take in the compliments or let out some steam, depending on the

finished product.

As the moon starts to decrease in size, so does the amount of food left on

the table. If she forgot to take the strawberries out and cut them up for the

dessert, she will be in a hurry to finish them, whip the heavy cream and get

the shortcakes out of the oven. Here, at the Last Quarter phase, she meets

these challenges by serving up a mouthwatering dessert, just as everyone is

groaning that they cannot possibly eat another morsel!

Just as soon as everyone pushes back from the table thoroughly satisfied,

the moon goes into her Final Phase of clearing the table, putting away

leftovers and tidying up the dishes. This closely resembles the Waning

Moon, finishing any loose ends.

Every 28 days of the Moon’s cyclic activity mirrors this type of domestic

event.

What we have just observed is the moon in action. Since the moon

symbolizes the home and women, the analogy to the family dinner can keep

in your mind the mission the moon has every month.

The moon has a close relationship to the Fourth House.

The Sun

When we even dare to peek at the SUN, his brilliance can be enough to

temporarily blind us. This is akin to judging people by their sun signs.

Temporarily, we are blinded by the high energy this vital body emits so we

may overlook other worthwhile traits someone possesses.

The SUN is number one on the music charts, the most often played tune, the

song with the most memorable words. They roll off our lips without giving it

much thought. The SUN is how we most often project our ego.

Copyright © 2008 by Roberta Chapin

http://www.aspectsofastrology.com/

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 10 of 118

We are most comfortable when we can easily project the qualities of our SUN

sign.

You can judge how consistent the SUN is by its predictable path.

In the spring at the vernal equinox, it marches into motion.

It will take roughly a month to pass through each sign of the zodiac. This

never changes from year to year.

Our calendar corresponds to the movement of the SUN through the signs.

The heat from SUN warms any other planet it contacts. But, it tends to

outshine any planets that are very close. This characteristic of the SUN plays

an important role when you begin to interpret the Horoscope.

Since most people know their SUN sign, it is easier to interpret the meaning

given to the SUN through each sign. People can readily identify with the

traits of their SUN sign.

The Sun has a close relationship with the Fifth House of the Horoscope.

Mercury

When we think of MERCURY, it reminds us of quicksilver, the substance that

used to be in thermometers. MERCURY adjusts its size according to the

temperature. It expands in the heat and retracts in the cold.

In early myths, MERCURY was the Messenger of the Gods. MERCURY

personifies Communication.

MERCURY stays pretty close to the Sun all year long, maybe lagging behind

or forging in front of the Sun a bit.

If MERCURY is in the same sign as the Sun, we sometimes see a little less

objectivity, a little more embracing of one’s own words and thoughts.

This tendency is most pronounced when the Sun and MERCURY are in Leo.

This is less discernable, but still present, when the Sun and MERCURY are in

the opposite sign of Aquarius.

More than other planets, MERCURY takes on the flavor of any planets close to

it. When we hop in the car to go on errands, MERCURY is on display as it is

when we write short notes or articles.

MERCURY in the Horoscope shows how our communications work for us.

Since MERCURY is sexless, it represents brothers and sisters of ours with

whom we have a sexless relationship. Since MERCURY is sexless, it can take

masculine or feminine roles with equal balance. Learning - as separate from

education – is a task performed equally well by either sex.

Copyright © 2008 by Roberta Chapin

http://www.aspectsofastrology.com/

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 12 of 118

This is why we look to MERCURY to see a person’s ability to learn. MERCURY

holds sway over the Third and Sixth houses of the horoscope.

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 13 of 118

Venus

VENUS reminds me of beauty. She is the Love Goddess, surrounding herself

with ardent admirers. She is all things feminine.

Ponder the Orchid corsage; beautiful, delicate, in good taste and expensive.

Let us go shopping for an outfit with VENUS. It has to be color-coordinated,

flattering and tasteful, within her budget and it has to appeal to her

significant other.

If she is not rushed, she will remember to tuck her coupons into the designer

purse she found for “practically nothing” the previous week.

We see her touching the fabrics on the 50% off sale rack. Nothing feels

right.

She may wander to the Sportswear section. Here, most of the items are pre-

matched with complimentary hues. If she wants to get the trip over and get

on to luncheon, she will settle for the beige sweater and the matching

cashmere, fully lined suit.

Before deciding, she glances at the gold Pave’ watch that she received as a

gift. How often she smiles and remembers receiving the timepiece. A former

fiancée who was eager to please her bought it for their very special day. She

could have returned it when they decided to part ways, but he insisted she

should keep it as a token of the love they had shared.

Copyright © 2008 by Roberta Chapin

http://www.aspectsofastrology.com/

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 14 of 118

She still has an hour before the Annual Garden Club luncheon. This gives

VENUS plenty of time to browse through the newly arrived items in the high

fashion section. Maybe she will try on the creamy yellow linen pantsuit.

As she lifts it gently from the display, a bold hounds tooth check and solid

black dress catches her artful eye. She takes both items and heads for the

dressing room.

As flattering as the color of the yellow suit is, she really should take off a few

pounds before she wears it.

The black and checked dress is made for her! The square cut neckline

emphasizes her graceful shoulders and comely neck.

She can wear her matching diamond pendant and earrings.

She gathers up both outfits and heads for the cashier.

She settles into her Lexus sedan and decides to take the more leisurely route

through the metro park. She is on her way to accepting the $500.00 First

Prize in the Best of Show Rose Exhibition that is awarded immediately

following the luncheon.

VENUS smoothes the way for us. VENUS always makes things prettier, more

expensive and, above all, in good taste.

When we have a five course delectable dinner with someone very special,

that is VENUS leading the way.

Mars

As Venus gracefully exits, out springs MARS.

We get our warrior instincts, sex drive, lead foot and all matters that convey

a sense of urgency from fiery MARS. Race car fans are living out their

Martian zeal vicariously by watching the challenges the drivers encounter

during a 300 or 500 lap event.

When we lose our head and start spouting off at someone who cut us off in

traffic, MARS is driving us at full speed.

Let us just observe MARS doing some heavy yard work. He checks the

engine on the power mower, revs it up and cuts the lawn speedily.

Next, he sharpens the blade on the hedge clippers, and chops the front

bushes evenly.

Next, Mars cuts a small edge around the entire lawn.

He‘s ready for the gasoline powered blower to quickly remove all the debris

from the sidewalk and driveway.

Now, he cracks open a can of beer and eyes up the pretty new neighbor

across the street planting her garden.

As seen above, MARS represents action.

Knowing when to act is one example of the best use of Martian energy.

Believe me, there is energy where MARS goes.

We would not be able to run around the block without a dose of MARS.

http://www.aspectsofastrology.com/

"Astrological Latte" by Roberta Chapin Page 16 of 118

When we want to bench press 100 pounds, MARS is there giving us the

strength.

The daredevil actions taken by youngsters are unbridled MARS. They are not

yet experienced enough to adequately manage the high energy MARS

provides, so an accident can easily happen.

Maturity requires other planets contacting our MARS to shape how we will

eventually react to its powerful influence.

Be assured that where MARS is operating, there will be action!

Jupiter

As we expand our study, out rolls JUPITER like a giant ball.

It can be our winning Keno number popping up while we are on a cruise to

Monte Carlo and other exotic ports of call.

On the other hand, JUPITER might be that urge to splurge we felt when we

first saw the ancient Chinese pottery at the College Alumni yearly auction.

A World Philosophies course taps into the mind broadening drive (JUPITER)

to expand our horizons. When we visualize a globe-trekking vacation,

JUPITER will be in the background providing a diverse itinerary.

Anyone inspired by Christianity, Buddhism or other religious belief is using

JUPITER’S gifts. JUPITER can be thought of as a major university in a far-

flung city; we can experience major mind expansion AND it is a very long

trip.

The incredible luck sometimes associated with JUPITER possibly comes about

through distant journeys of the mind allowing us to visualize the prize. How

often we have heard a big winner say, “I just knew it was coming my way!”

They already saw it happening.

JUPITER comes along to encourage us to think bigger thoughts, understand

larger concepts and see the world as our personal arena of life.

Go ahead, hit the lottery and use the winnings to earn a Doctorate in Global

studies. On your breaks, take in the Grand Canyon and the Himalayas.

JUPITER bestows the biggest blessings, enjoy!

Saturn

To some, SATURN seems like the mean stepfather, denying any fun until all

the work is completed.

Moreover, we know, “all the work” is never done. SATURN is a stern

taskmaster.

SATURN can be a fair-minded employer; a full day’s pay for a full day’s work.

However, do not think you can sneak off for a 15 minute break. SATURN will

dock your wages. Sometimes, he will even fire you if you push your luck.

SATURN is there to make you see the error of your past actions.

No other planet can bring you to your knees the way SATURN does.

We go job-hunting with SATURN weighing heavily on our shoulders. The first

things we notice are the restrictions and requirements for a position.

The employer may be looking for someone with no prior arrests who can pass

a drug test.

The prospective employee must have a valid in-State driver’s license and be

able to lift 40 lbs.

What a shame!

The job would have been perfect if you had not had that vehicular homicide

when you were nineteen that left you with a fused lumbar disc and some

chronic back pain (for which you frequently use Percocet).

Oh, and the two year stint at the state penitentiary that is a part of your

permanent criminal record. If only the state didn’t revoke your driving

privileges, you might be able to get around some of those other pesky

demands.

SATURN allows us very little wiggle room. If we have broken the rules or

taken the easy route, SATURN is there with the big red and white stop sign.

We must live with our mistakes and misdeeds.

The phrase “Marry in haste and repent at leisure” was no doubt coined by

someone feeling the heavy hand of SATURN.

Poorly thought through actions can leave a lasting (SATURN) scar.

SATURN forces us to see the long-term consequences of prior hasty deeds.

Unfortunately, we do not see all sides of SATURN until we are twenty-eight to

thirty years of age.

“Old too soon, too late smart” as the saying goes.

Uranus

URANUS is radiant and upsetting.

Planets touching URANUS take on a unique luster.

URANUS shakes things up. Some things explode, others mix into distinctive

byproducts.

URANUS is always in the picture when our lives are going through major

changes: Homes breaking up, divorce, sudden surprises all make the

statement that we have URANUS front and center.

Uranium got its name from the planet URANUS, discovered eight years

before the documentation of Uranium, the heaviest of all the naturally-

occurring elements. This dense metal is an abundant source of energy.

To comprehend Uranium is to appreciate the startling effect created by the

path of URANUS. Why don’t we give URANUS the task of doing some Urban

Renewal?

From this, we can highlight some of the factors critical to understanding this

awesome planet. URANUS designs a master plan for the center of the city;

four blocks that can be turned into a massive high rise. The name of this

development will be, of course, “The Urania Complex”.

The top floors will be residential apartments with two, three and four

bedrooms.

The middle floors will house the major offices of the dominant bank in the

area.

The lower floors will have suites for Physicians and Attorneys.

The ground floor will have upscale shopping and restaurant facilities.

The outer façade, URANUS explains, will be of gleaming steel that reflects the

morning sunrise.

On the top floor there will be a playground, swimming pool and putting

green, capped with a retractable roof for year-round enjoyment.

Presently on that property, there are two bakeries. One is Italian and the

other is Slovenian. They share the giant ovens and work round the clock to

maximize the output for these two thriving businesses.

There is an open-air market that attaches to the grocery store.

In the warmer months, farmers bring their produce in to sell to the city folks

for much more money than they could command wholesaling it to the bigger

chain stores.

There is one walk-up apartment block that houses mostly the over-55 crowd

on fixed incomes.

It is a bit dated and has no central air-conditioning. But, the few residents

that are uncomfortable use window units or fans in the front and back

windows.

The only other business is a restaurant that has been in the same family for

fifty-two years. People swarm in from the suburbs to dine on authentic

Chinese fare.

All the businesses profit from the metered parking lot at the rear of these

buildings. The walk-up uses the extra income for maintenance and security.

URANUS argues that all these little buildings and the one apartment are not

the best use for this desirable location. Just imagine the billions to be made

by tearing down this blighted area and replacing it with the “The Urania

Complex!”

I will leave it to your imagination to visualize the havoc carried into the lives

of all the present residents and shopkeepers.

Will it benefit the city, the tax collector and the young urban professionals

looking for housing within walking distance of their jobs?

Yes, sadly it will.

However, to those settled in their way and thriving in their routines, the

present occupants of that piece of land, something much like an earthquake

has struck!

But this is the task of URANUS; a few people’s lives disrupted for the greater

good of all.

Neptune

Pondering NEPTUNE gets us a bit lost in thought. When we enter

NEPTUNE’S neighborhood, everything seems to be something it is not, or

isn’t something it appears to be.

If you have ever wakened from a wonderful dream wishing you could just go

back to sleep and have it continue; you have felt the soft, ethereal hand of

NEPTUNE.

When another planet is in proximity to NEPTUNE, one’s judgment can be

clouded regarding matters associated with that other planet.

It can be a friendship that NEPTUNE brings: We see our friend as a messiah-

like creature, expounding on the true deep spiritual messages given out in

every-day movies and books.

One evening, as we stop by to pick up NEPTUNE, we see him leaning into a

car handing the occupant a large amount of cash. Then we witness him

slipping several neatly folded pieces of aluminum foil into his jacket. This

mystical messiah is nothing but a sandal wearing, longhaired junkie. Our

illusion is crushed

Where things seem too good to be true………. NEPTUNE is at work. She is

weaving a magic charm through reality, blurring facts with dreamy illusions.

Under the spell of NEPTUNE, people have entered ultimately disastrous

marriages. At first, they were enthralled by the perfection in their mate.

Only later, when NEPTUNE had fled the scene, did they discover the object of

all their adoration was a swindler, cheat, con artist or violent alcoholic.

NEPTUNE only bestows its gifts to those who will deny any right to them.

You may want to know how you can receive them. I think you pretend they

do not exist!

That is the surely the safest way to deal with big, fat, full-of-hot-air

NEPTUNE!

Pluto

I was secretly elated when the big shots decided to demote PLUTO.

He had been hanging out with the seediest gangsters and wise guys and

forcing his way into all kinds of businesses.

The trouble is that, since his demotion, I’ve noticed he’s more like the guy

next door. Mr. Next-door doesn’t hold down a job and there have been a

steady stream of waif-like females in and out of his house. Then, the story

broke in the papers that he was running call girls from his home computer.

Yes, a snake can change its skin, but it’s still a snake!

He has also been having a cozy, decade’s long relationship with Uranus.

Uranus will settle in a community and announce a series of civic

improvement projects. Of course, relocation for any of the affected residents

was carefully specified in the contracts.

Nevertheless, PLUTO demanded a cut of the action and, because of their

long-standing relationship, Uranus awarded him the contracts for relocating

all the displaced citizens.

These people, for the most part, ended up without their money or their

business.

But, there were a few who were willing to play PLUTO’S dark secret games

and who actually came out of the shake-up wealthy business and property

owners.
