Some constellations were brought into being suddenly and dramatically in a blast of popstrological turmoil and rebellion, but this one came on just a bit more quietly, as soft as a summer breeze and as fresh as a ten-year-old Twinkie. The sound of Lite & White spawned format changes on FM radio stations throughout the country, as they geared their playlists to suit Americans' evident appetite for the safe and soothing sounds of stars like the Carpenters and the Fifth Dimension. Yes, the Fifth Dimension, for the group that founded this constellation was also the group that proved that Liteness is color blind and that Whiteness is more a state of mind than a state of being. By the time Christopher Cross and Air Supply were completing this collection of mellow pop stars, the music emanating from this constellation had established almost total hegemony in previously music-free settings such as doctors' waiting rooms, telephone on-hold loops, and, of course, elevators. But do not mistake the early-eighties demise of the constellation Lite & White for the demise of either Liteness or Whiteness, for it was out of the ashes of this popstrological entity and its antithesis, the constellation Mustache Rock, that the dominant force of the 1980s arose: the mighty and dreaded constellation Reaganrock.

RELATIONSHIP ISSUES
The double-edged relationship effect of the constellation Lite & White is to give those born under the influence of its stars an ability to blend initially with just about anyone, but a tendency to grow gradually more difficult to take over the course of time. Indeed, without other popstrological influences to spice up the situation, Lite & Whites will tend to lose their initial appeal over time except to the least adventurous of partners.
