The creativity associated with an Inferior Function does not flow easily and naturally as it does when it arises from the Dominant Function. It manifests in sometimes painful, strained, and embarrassing ways. There is a quality of strife and urgency associated with the expression of the Inferior Function, although it can be a source of great creativity. Singletons (and the missing function), tend to come out when the individual is under stress. For example, Al Gore’s Mercury singleton (only Water sign planet), shows up under stress as his proclivity for making exaggerated statements that distort the facts.

The singleton as an Inferior Function gives a focus to that function. For example, a singleton Earth Moon in Capricorn in the ninth house gives a narrow channel to focus the desire to be nurtured and cared for on the physical and worldly level. The person may only feel grounded and secure with structured (Capricorn), ideological concepts and perceptions (ninth house). Perhaps the childhood was spent in a boarding school or a strict religious school with a resulting desire in adulthood for freedom (ninth house), in a mountainous countryside (Capricorn). There is a strong connection between the physical level and the emotions and vice versa, a love and longing for the high country, for status and wealth, for perfection in all areas (Capricorn things). Otherwise, the person may be quite impractical and struggle with basic survival issues (food, money, sex, etc.) When the Inferior Function is missing, there is no focus, and so the issues tend to be diffused throughout the life and the psychology. The person with no Earth may be obsessed with money, sex and food, any one or all of these things. She may, for instance, be overweight through overeating (food addiction, an Earth problem), while being a stickler for detail when it comes to keeping her house neat and tidy (a Virgo trait), and balancing her checkbook each week (a Taurus tendency).

Some planets as singletons tend to be more problematic than others are. Mercury, Venus, and the Sun are rarely found as singletons because most of the time they are so close to each other from our earth perspective. If one of them is a singleton it should be looked at closely, for it is a rare and remarkable phenomenon.

The Sun and Moon as singletons are critical in the psychological makeup of a person! There is something special and unusual in connection with the mother or nurturing figure with the Moon. And with the Sun singleton there are special issues around father or the positive male role model. Men tend to project their Moon (and Venus), singleton onto the women in their lives, while women project the Sun (and Mars), singleton onto the significant men around them: father, husband, and the boss.

With a singleton Moon, all kinds of lunar issues are emphasized. It is so crucial because the Moon represents the most primitive, innate, instinctual parts of our being. It is the “inner infant” and little child that never grows up. So when there is a Moon singleton, the person has a very active and alive inner baby who is insecure and needy, as well as playful, creative, and loveable. It is also the “inner mother” who has the capacity to nurture not only the individual himself, but other people and things as well. Our person with the singleton Moon in Capricorn has a “green thumb,” the capacity to nurture and foster plant life.

The Moon symbolizes our earliest preverbal memories, or the deepest, primary conditioning. These memories are stored in an area of the brain very close to the area associated with our inherent animal survival instincts. Because they are preverbal, it is difficult and sometimes impossible to articulate or even cognize these memories. They become the core of emotional complexes. The personal mythology of “Mother” in a chart is linked to both the inherent need to be nurtured (some babies are needier than others are), and the perception and memories of how one was nurtured by the mother or nurturing person. The person with Moon singleton in Capricorn tends to feel, “I never got enough!” And, since the real mother has Moon in Aries, he is probably right! Moon in Scorpio will have myths around how seductive and secretive mother was, or how powerful she was and how she “drowned” him in her emotional aura.

The Moon represents the archetypal feminine figure or the anima. Because the Moon singleton tends to be projected by men, the anima complex is most common. He tends to be obsessed with a search for the ideal woman to complete him. He may, at the same time, subconsciously question his own masculinity because the feminine is so emphasized in his psychology. If he has a Moon Singleton in Scorpio or Capricorn, his ideal woman may be very unconscious, denied and repressed. He may think the ideal woman is a socially mandated archetype, such as a blond, blue-eyed, ebullient cheerleader. But what he gets repeatedly is a very different kind of woman, at least as he sees her. One man with a Moon singleton in Scorpio and a Venus singleton in Capricorn asked, “Why do I keep attracting [and being attracted to] “witches” as girlfriends?” He was not happy to be told that is what he would keep getting until he integrated those energies into his consciousness. Then he might actually see those same “witchy” women quite differently, or accept that he found them much more attractive than the cheerleaders, no matter what TV and magazine advertisements promote as sexy.

Questions of child bearing can be crucial for a woman with a Moon singleton. She may have very intense feelings about it: wants a baby, does not want any children, has a highly ambivalent attitude about it. If she decides to have a child, the infantile part of her comes up. She is confronted with having to give up her own childishness, of having to grow up and nurture and care for someone else instead of being ever the one who is taken care of by another. If she has been married for some years and has become “daddy’s little girl” to her husband and the biological clock is loudly ticking, she is in a real quandary! On the other hand, if she has become “mommy” to her husband, a real baby can demolish the marriage. A woman (or a man), may project the singleton Moon on the child or children. The crisis of the “empty nest syndrome” hits when the children grow up and no longer need nurturing or “mothering.”

Issues around dependency or “co-dependency” and security are exaggerated with a Moon singleton. Umbilical relationships are common, perhaps inevitable. A man wants a secure job, a woman a secure marriage, or, these days, a secure job. Issues of meshing and merging one’s identity with that of another person is crucial. Institutions such as the Church or the Military may become the projected Moon (family and secure nurturing figure). We see Moon singletons in the charts of religious people: Martin Luther (11/10/1483, 11:00 PM, Eisleben, Germany), initiator of the Protestant Reformation; St. Teresa of Avila (3/28/1515, 5:30 AM, Avila, Spain), who reformed the Carmelite Order; Pierre Teillard de Chardin (see last month’s article).1

The person with a singleton Moon carries a feeling that, “My inner child is very special,” or, “I am the Divine Child.” He or she may have been made to feel special as a child, singled out within the family, given special responsibilities, duties, honors, or was a martyr, an abused child. Being “special” early in life is conducive to remaining an “eternal divine child.”

In the Introduction last month we looked at Bill Clinton’s Moon in Taurus, three times a singleton. His biography reveals he was the “special child” in his birth family. His father died in a car accident before he was born. His early security depended on his mother and grandmother. He perceived these women as powerful, nurturing, security figures. His mother worked, so he had to be responsible for himself early on. Later, when she remarried and had a second son, Bill took on the responsible role of surrogate father to his little half-brother. He had special responsibilities and, because he was a bright child and good student, special honors. Powerful women are always in his life: his wife, his only daughter, and a girlfriend who brought him to impeachment.

It should come as no great surprise that Monica Lewinsky (July 23, 1973, 12:21 PM, San Francisco, CA), also has a Moon singleton in Taurus. She “looks the part,” voluptuous, sensuous and oddly innocent. A woman will tend to “own” her singleton Moon, and she may build her life and career around it. Monica said that what attracted her most to Clinton was the “little boy” she saw in him (his Moon singleton).

Another woman with a singleton Moon is Martha Stewart (August 3, 1941, 1:33 PM, Jersey city, NJ). Her Sagittarius Moon in the second house of income and values is two times a singleton. It is the only planet in a universal sign and a personal house. She has promoted (Sagittarius), her talent for domestic arts (Moon), into a multimillion dollar empire (Sagittarius on the second house cusp). Sagittarius always does things in a very big way! Martha’s inner creative child may not be great for relationships because children are by nature self-centered and demanding. Martha is famous for her hot temper. Her “eternal inner infant” (Moon), is part of a Grand Trine in Fire, with Sun in Leo and Mars in Aries. It could be very easy (trine), for her to “get burned up” or “burned out.” By over-compensating her Moon singleton, she has made herself an immortal household icon.

Women tend to over-compensate their anima planets, Moon and Venus, when these show up as singletons, but not necessarily. A man is more likely to project them, but, again, not necessarily. With both sexes the singleton Moon is the child who never grows up. In some ways and in certain areas of life the Moon singleton person will always be the “eternal infant” – demanding and needy for time, attention, and security. And both genders almost always have intense issues around the mother figure in their lives. The “inner child” at his or her best is highly creative, lively and playful, full of boundless energy.

There are other factors in the chart besides a singleton Moon that can correlate to the mother complex and the anima complex. Hard aspects between the Moon and Pluto or between Moon, not itself a singleton, and another singleton planet can produce behavior and attitudes similar to those associated with the Moon singleton. For example, a woman with a Saturn in Aries singleton opposed Moon in Libra had very ambivalent relationships with her daughters, yet she bound them to her with a tight psychological umbilical cord by belittling them and undermining their self-confidence (a negative Saturn trait). She was jealous of them because she had to compete with them for “Daddy’s” affection. Both girls had Moon in hard aspect to Pluto; so it was all too easy for them to fall victim to, or play into, the mother’s vicious games. The daughters felt Mother had nurtured them with psychic poison (their own Moon/Pluto myth of mother).

An individual with a Moon singleton needs creative, positive outlets. Go by how it is a singleton in order to focus on areas of activity. Martha Stewart is flamboyantly creative in the domestic arts. Monica Lewinsky now designs purses and luxury accessories for women and is on British television discussing U.S. “culture.” An earth sign Moon singleton man is a landscape architect.

A Moon singleton person can manifest the stereotypical best and worst traits of the sign Cancer. Mood swings and emotional hypersensitivity are inevitable with these highly emotional and feeling people. They respond acutely to Moon transits. Check this out with family members, close friends and co-workers – anyone with whom you have daily interaction. Observe their behavior. For example, a person with a Moon singleton has Mars in Leo in the third house. On days when the Moon is in Leo, she has angry thoughts, speaks harsh words, is impatient and gets into arguments and power struggles at the slightest provocation. A few days later with transiting Moon in Libra over natal Neptune, she may feel guilty over what she said or did, and almost always gets romantic and sentimental. Lunar progressions, too, will have an even stronger impact on the life of a Moon singleton native than they do on the rest of us.
Jupiter is King of the Gods and the Father in Heaven, a sky god. On a psychological level he is the dispenser of law and giver of gifts and of grace. The longing for a Heavenly Father and the need to experience some guiding spiritual principle at work in our lives is the Jupiter principle. There is a restless longing with Jupiter for a future bigger, better and brighter than the present. This longing sometimes prompts us to pursue new experiences, thereby squandering time, energy and resources. Such restless striving does expand our awareness and can give a glimpse of immortality. When we ask, “What is the lesson to be learned from this experience?” it is the voice of Jupiter.

There is a joke about a child who discovers a room filled with manure on Christmas morning. He is delighted and immediately starts digging, declaring, “With this much horse crap, there’s got to be a pony in here somewhere!” That’s Jupiter taken a bit to the extreme. And so is the scene in the movie, “The Life of Brian,” which ends with the chorus happily singing at the Crucifixion, “Always Look on the Bright Side.” Both optimism and humor are Jovan qualities.

We have seen that Mars, the Warrior of the Gods, and the other planets as well can be, as singletons, quite problematic. Jupiter, however, seems to be less so, at least on the surface, because it symbolizes many things that we like and of which we approve, such as wisdom and moral values. However, just as Mars activates the sign it is in and stimulates the qualities of other planets it contacts by aspect, so Jupiter expands and enlarges the sign it is in and the planets it touches.

When it is a singleton, Jupiter can manifest as a God/Deity Complex. We often find the Messiah Complex with its sense of “I can do anything!” The flip side of the sense of one’s own “godness” (god-like qualities and abilities), includes the projection of those onto others, or guru worship. There is an enthusiasm for the god within. A young man named Stephan heard a Biblical quote, “With God all things are possible.” He was fourteen at the time and blithely replied, “I don’t know much about God, but that sure is true for me!” That is a Jupiter in Aries singleton, only Fire sign! One of the dangers with a Jupiter singleton is a bad case of hubris; that means the feeling that, “I am equal to or better than the gods!” Jupiter eventually extracts a price for that, for Jupiter is also the “wrath of God.” In Stephan’s case, he took for granted his abundant good health (6th house) and abused it through needle injected drug use and unprotected sex, contracting the HIV infection which led to his death on a day when the Sun was exactly conjunct Jupiter by transit.

There tends to be tremendous ambition with Jupiter. There is a sense that, “I am so wonderful; I have to share it with everyone!” There is just so much to do and so much to give out (Saturn is also ambitious, but from a sense of lack, of never having enough; so he works hard to get more and more). People with Jupiter singletons tend to be part of the elite of whatever group or social strata they identify with as their community. This is a manifestation of aspiration toward superiority and a sense of inflatedness. The extreme of this is the Superiority Complex, and the psychopathology may be expressed as thinking oneself to be the Virgin Mary, Christ or Buddha. Jupiter is associated with the manic phase of the bipolar syndrome or manic-depression. The Superiority/Inferiority Complex is particularly common where there is a difficult aspect between Jupiter and Saturn, especially if both are singletons.

Because Jupiter expands and inflates the quality of the sign it is in and the house it rules, as well as the one in which it is posited, we find many famous and successful people with the singleton in their charts. For example, a successful woman, Marlene, is in the TV news media. Her Jupiter singleton is in Gemini (news), in the 5th house of creativity and children and it rules her 10th house (career and reputation). She has always been lucky in getting highly paid anchor positions. She is always number one in every ratings period (honors and esteem from the community). Not only is she highly creative, but her young son, Chip, is an extraordinarily bright infant, a Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius. His speech and learning ability far exceed his age of one and one-half years. Interestingly enough, the boy also has a Jupiter singleton. Maybe luck and the ability to be among the elite is genetic? He also has a Saturn singleton, inherited from his father. Time will tell if he suffers from the superiority/inferiority complex.

Jupiter includes generosity, expansiveness, optimism and a sense of humor. Sometimes the ambitions and optimism over-ride the practical realities. Fred has Jupiter in Virgo in his 10th house. Jupiter is the only planet in an Earth (practicality, realism), sign. The inferior function, as we said before, can be over-compensated or denied. In Fred’s case, where we might expect to find realistic (Virgo), expectations (Jupiter), we find great expectations and a lack of a realistic attitude (denial of the Virgo quality). He is physically huge, exceedingly obese. He is completely out of touch with the physical reality of proper diet (Virgo), of what foods are best for him and the quantity which would be appropriate. He is ever-optimistic that one day he will be a billionaire. He “bites off more than he can – or should – chew” in both his business affairs and at the table.

Indulgence, or over-indulgence, in food, wine, drugs, and good times are some of the dangers that lurk in Jupiter’s shadows. The “fairy godmother complex” is another possibility. With a tendency to feel special to god or providence, and to be watched over and protected by unseen forces, people may take their health, wealth, and social position for granted and loose them all at some point. Wastefulness is another Jupiter shadow quality. Conceit, hyperbole, hypocrisy (“do as I say, not as I do”), and exaggeration (as used in advertising and propaganda), can also hide under Jupiter’s throne. The tendencies to sermonize and proselytize are Jovan character flaws, too. “God told me and I’m just telling you for your own good!”

The Jupiter Complex ordains that everything should be light, white, and bright, and demands conformity to the community’s, or group’s, ideology (to follow the “party line”). Many “New Agers” suffer from this. They will not look at the dark side; they are terrified by Pluto, and so can never get in touch with their inner power and be truly effective in the world. An example of this Jovan conformity among New Agers was encountered at a Crop Circle Presentation in Mount Shasta. Those of us who dared not to conform by offering possible scientific or realistic explanations of the phenomena were regarded as heretics, and our input was completely unappreciated. There may have been a lot of Neptune going on too.

Values are associated with Jupiter, and the sign Jupiter is in defines the values in a specific chart. The house it is in also defines those values. For example, Jupiter in a fixed sign values the unchanging, loyalty, sturdiness, and a staunch attitude. Mutable sign values include adaptability and versatility, while Cardinal signs prefer enterprise and action. Since Jupiter inflates and exaggerates the qualities of its sign, in Pisces, for instance, it may glamorize suffering and humility, or feel that suffering makes one superior. “He who sitteth upon a hot stove shall arise,” implies spiritual growth happens only through suffering.

As the archetype of the priest, Jupiter is associated with the quest for the divine. There is an interest in higher consciousness and in ethics (the eternal principle of what is right, or dharma), morals (a specific society’s consensual version of ethics, i.e. we say we believe monogamy is best, but have girlfriends or boyfriends on the side). Exaggeration of the Superego or conscience goes along with Jupiter. Where Jupiter is in your chart is where (house), and how (sign), you expect to be good and to do your best, and to be applauded as the best. There is a children’s story called “My Nest is Best,” that would be Jupiter in Cancer.

The Australian Olympic swimmer, Ian Thorpe, is an example of someone whose singleton planet defines his “name and fame.” He has a “lucky” chart to begin with. All the planets are contained within a trine from Moon to Neptune, and all are above the horizon. Jupiter in Scorpio is the only Water sign planet, and it is in the 10th house. All three things, planetary energy, sign, house, are very evident in Ian’s life. He spends a lot of time doing his career in the water, literally. His nicknames (Jupiter and Sagittarius love nicknames) are “Thorpedo” (Scorpio) and “Flipper” (Jupiter-humor). He has huge feet, size 17! Jupiter disposes of Neptune in the 12th house. Pisces, Neptune and the 12th are associated with feet. The black full bodysuit he prefers to wear is called a “frogsuit” (water, Scorpio) and “Mr. Condom” (Scorpio).

A well-known West Coast guru, J. Donald Walters, a.k.a. Swami Kriyananda, has his Jupiter singleton in Aquarius (only Air), in the 9th house. It is one arm of a Fixed Grand Cross. Fixed Grand Crosses are often found in the charts of people who found things - institutions, governments, and so forth. It is also implies deeply ingrained habit patterns acquired and repeated over many lifetimes (samskaras). It is the hardest configuration for a psychologist to work with; often the person would resist psychotherapy anyway. The Grand Cross is a closed system, and it is difficult for anyone to get into or through to the individual. When it is in Fixed signs that is almost impossible. The Cross is comprised of the Jupiter singleton squared to the Sun in Taurus and a Saturn singleton in Scorpio (only Social house planet); Jupiter opposes a Moon/Neptune conjunction in Leo. We have discussed the Jupiter/Saturn contact as indicating possible manic-depression and the superiority/inferiority complex. Sun/Saturn and Moon/Saturn suggest difficulties with parents, authority figures, with early childhood experiences and one’s conscious and unconscious sense of identity. Mr. Walters founded a spiritual community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada which he calls the “Expanding Light” – how Sun/Jupiter! It is based on his version of the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, but is in no way affiliated with Yogananda’s group, Self-Realization Fellowship. In Palo Alto, California he has a church that has been known over the years by various names: Fellowship of Inner Communion (very Jupiter in Aquarius, 9th house!), Ananda, Ananda Church of Self-Realization, and Ananda Sangha. Renaming the group Ananda Church of Self-Realization was an act of hubris on Walter’s part, and the SRF brought suit against him for that and other infringements on their copyrights. Later, another suit was brought to court against him for sexual harassment (case #390230, filed in Santa Clara County on November 21, 1994). The case was covered extensively in the Palo Alto Daily, a local newspaper. It came out during the trial that Walters had been sexually involved with many of his female followers over the years, not just the young woman who filed the suit. Jupiter in Aquarius square Saturn in Scorpio in the 5th symbolizes self-righteous egoistic rebellion () against past self-denial of romantic and sexual pleasure ( 5th). He chose confused, very pretty women, often blondes (). The square from Sun to Jupiter is the signature of megalomaniac tendencies; he thought what he was doing was all right for him to do, but not for anyone else. A quote from the Palo Alto Daily states, “The women said that when they were having sex with the swami, they were in tune with the pure channel of God.” The prosecution based its claim of fraud on the fact that “the swami, while holding himself out as a spiritual leader who has taken vows of celibacy, was trying to have sex with his young devotees.” The jury was asked to “find the church negligent for not supervising the conduct of Walters.” That would have been impossible for the church due to Walter’s Fixed Grand Cross; he is a “closed system,” a law unto himself. Jovan hypocrisy was at work.

The case was filed as transiting Jupiter was in Scorpio conjuncting natal Saturn and squaring Jupiter’s natal position. The trial was in process in January and February 1998 as Jupiter returned to Aquarius, transiting natal Jupiter and squaring natal Saturn. The trial lasted around three months and the swami lost. A planet by transit always carries with it the natal significance and implications. We can always wonder if Jupiter (the inner guru) finally broke through the Grand Fixed Cross and released Walters, to some degree at least, from its karmic hold. As the “wrath of God,” Jupiter by transit caught up and loosed his lightening bolts. The lesson here is: if you want to teach, do not preach; simply live the example of your philosophy. Be your best and be true to yourself.

Shirley MacLaine has her Jupiter singleton in the first house of self-image and personal interests. It is the only planet in a personal house. Interestingly, her chart shares some common themes with Walters’: a Moon/Neptune conjunction, Saturn in the 5th house and Pluto in an angular house. But where Walters had a square between Sun and Moon, MacLaine has a trine; where Walters had Venus in the sign of its fall, Aries, MacLaine has Venus in its sign of esoteric exaltation, Pisces. She, too, is a Sun sign Taurus. She was first a dancer, then a comedian as an actress. MacLaine may be zany and “out on a limb,” but she believes everyone should be his or her own guru ( 1st), and to the extent that she teaches or preaches, it is done through her books, her writing. Mercury, well placed in Aries, opposes Jupiter and squares Pluto, while it rules her first and tenth houses. She’s a “natural” for communicating her philosophy in a direct, easy to understand manner to the masses (Pluto). The Cardinal T-Cross takes action and initiative, and is open and vulnerable, not a closed system. Kriyananda wrote a book, The Path, about his spiritual journey with Yogananda. In the Jan.-Feb. 2001 issue of Modern Maturity (a magazine for and about people over 50), there was an article about MacLaine titled Shirley’s Way. The article describes Shirley’s 500-mile hike on a pilgrim’s trail, The Camino, from the base of the Pyrannees in France, across Spain to Santiago de Compostela. The Camino’s lesson: you will discover you are more than you thought you were when you began. The words path, way and camino all mean the same thing. Jupiter demands we travel (both inwardly and outwardly), to expand our consciousness and to become more. I have always believed one should leave the country for a foreign land every two years just to keep things in proper perspective.

There are a few other well-known names that have Jupiter singletons. Albert Einstein (Jupiter in Aquarius 9th opposite Uranus three times a singleton in the third), is remembered for his theory of relativity and won a Nobel Prize for discovering the photo-electric-effect law. Madame Marie Curie (Jupiter in Aquarius in the first house sextile Pluto, also a singleton), won two Nobel Prizes, one for physics and the other for chemistry. The Duke of Wellington, an aristocrat, also known as Arthur Wellesley (Jupiter in Scorpio in the 10th, part of a Grand Trine with Moon in Pisces and Saturn in Cancer), was a British soldier and statesman nicknamed “The Iron Duke;” he is remembered most for defeating Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

Jupiter is the inner guide and benevolent protector so long as we refrain from offending the gods by committing the sin of hubris. He rewards our good works and our acts of integrity with honors and grace.

When the absent function appears on the Ascendant or the Midheaven, the persona, personal or public, tends to overcompensate; it is all façade. Often it is a case of false advertising: what you see is not what you get when you take the package home and unwrap it! Marilyn Monroe, with her Taurus Midheaven, is a good example. The public image she projected was the sex goddess. Inside she was air and water, all ideas, thoughts and emotions, with no way of "grounding" herself. In my own practice, I have noticed people with a missing function represented by the Ascendant sign to be very frustrated and uneasy. They may identify totally with the Ascendant personality and feel hollow inside, or feel that they have to put out a lot of energy to keep up the false front and, therefore, can never completely express who they really are.
Shocked, I have all three of those. Must I play the role of the lucky childish needy big headed larger than life Leo hero battling against evil powerful women for the rest of my life? Being a "Monday baby" only strengthens the influence that women have over me. Me rising suggests success through the help of females too. :?

Stalker wrote:Interesting read if you ask me. As to your questions and positions, I've seen astrology as map and tool to grasp problems and channel them into positive directions or be aware of them and solve them. With other words, at least the fact that we know about our singleton functions, we're aware of what we're prone to fall for or do. That gives an advantage in itself, to stop doing it (not as easy done as said though, if you ask me). I'm absorbed in those articles meanwhile.

I have the Venus Singleton. Sounds unpleasant. I assume that in a guy's chart it's projection of Venus effects onto others.

The singleton Venus tends toward exaggeration, projection and displacement of sensual and relationship issues. It is the Eternal Aphrodite archetype. Touching, pleasure, and an emphasis on beauty and sensuality are present. There are likely to be problems with body functions such as oral dependencies and sex addition. Common issues revolve around food, sex and money. Issues with specialness in relationship-making abound. There tends to be a deep-rooted pattern of the classic adolescent looking for an idealized relationship. Relationships are passionate, intense, unrealistic and filled with teenage-type game playing.

In Earth and Water signs, a Venus singleton tends to function in the Taurus phase, on the physical level. In Air and Fire signs it acts like the Libra phase at the mental and relationship level. Two women well known to the author, “Rochelle” and “Donna” serve as examples.

We can see the women tend to “own” and perhaps overcompensate their Venus singletons, while men are more likely to project it onto women. Certainly the Duke of Windsor, Sigmund Freud and Philip did. Ricky Martin seems to be the object of other peoples’ projections. He is a performer and artist, and as such he can access his feminine side without the social stigma most men feel. There seems also to be some question as to his sexual orientation.

Venus and Mercury are the “Perceptors.” Venus and Mars are the “Artist-Lovers.” Venus is a bridge between the mind with its perceptive functions and the physical body in action.

Not quite the good explanation as I seeked, and it doesn't really reveal much in my case. I can't relate well to my Venus at all, so I wonder if some other planet restrains or afflicts it. Besides Moon, Midheaven and some other things, that is. Actually, different calculators show me as different Venuses, but I trust in a greater extent. Blah blah.
