The First Four Asteroids (Part 2)

Maritha Pottenger

We continue our “cookbook” delineations of the “big four” asteroids this issue. Please remember that the possibilities provided here are only that—potentials which MAY manifest—and many other options exist. We hope that readers will use their own inventiveness and creativity to come up with additional alternatives. I must put a plug in for Lynne Burmyn’s absolutely fantastic new book—Planets in Combination—which helped inspire some of these delineations. She gives extensive lists of keywords for the 12-letter alphabet, in terms of verbs, nouns and adverbs—on flip cards which literally allow you to mix and match numerous possibilities. She also provides written delineations for every combination of two and each combination of three planets. I recommend Planets in Combination highly to spark ideas and more creativity!

One of the principles of the 12-letter alphabet is that houses outweigh signs. Houses, being based on time of birth, are more personally relevant, than are signs (especially when we get to the outer planets). So, even though these interpretations are written in terms of a house OR a sign position, we would generally expect the house position to be of more personal significance (always depending upon the rest of the chart).
