How do I love thee? / Let me count the ways / I love thee to the depth and breadth and height / My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight / For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
–Elizabeth B. Browning.
Elizabeth B. Browning
Poet Elizabeth B. Browning, née Barrett, was born in Northumberland, England, slightly west of the vertical, midnight position of her Primary Jupiter. After marrying Robert Browning, the two poets journeyed from England to Pisa, where Elizabeth composed “The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim’s Point,” a poem protesting the institution of slavery in the United States. Afterward, they settled in Florence, where she completed her most important collection of poems, Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850) and where she gave birth to her only son, Robert Wiedemann Browning.
As we can see in her astrocartography, Florence is in the midst of a Primary Jupiter / Secondary Moon Transcendental Midpoint-Field, extending from Browning’s Primary Jupiter, which runs in a vertical, midnight position, west of Italy, to her Secondary Moon, which rises over the southernmost tip of Italy: a field encapsulating nearly the entire country.
The “expansive / emotional states” (Jupiter / Moon) eloquently portrayed in Browning’s poems are keynote qualities of the Primary Jupiter / Secondary Moon Transcendental pairing, a combination notable for reflecting a “personal, emotional involvement” (Secondary Moon) with issues concerning the “social-collective soul” (Primary Jupiter). All Browning’s yin planets–Jupiter,1 Moon, Neptune, and Venus–are her least aspected planets: a combination emphasizing the empathic, emotive, and feeling-toned nature of her life and work.
