MARTIN MORITZ – SINGLETONS IN THE CHART

With ten years of teaching Psychodrama under his belt, he now specialised in couple therapy, often helped with astrological readings. By now he has been a consulting psychological astrologer for more than two decades. He lectures all over Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK. He gave talks at NORWAC; the AA conference and the London based Astrological Lodge. He also lectures for MISPA. He writes articles for German and Swiss astrology magazines, as well as for the Astrological Journal. His keen interests are Psychological and Karmic Astrology, as well as gender studies.. His book ‘Pandora’s Box – The mysterious 8th house’ was published in September 2021. His website: astro-via.com.
Singletons in the chart We often take those elements of which we have plenty for granted, even can get bored with them. Welcome to yawn city. If, on the other hand, an element is completely missing, we can become quite worried. What to do? Missing elements are often delegated into the shadow, prone to all sorts of defense mechanisms, mostly projection. And can we presume that one planet in an element is better than none at all? Well…no, not quite! Richard Idemon called these planets ‘singletons’ and attached a great deal of significance to them. After all, they have to carry the whole weight of this element, which can never be an easy task. And so singletons are at odds when it comes to integrate themselves into the chorus of the chart, they are not team player. It rather wants to become the conductor of the whole chart and play first fiddle in our consciousness. A prima ballerina or a black sheep, the runt or the pig of the litter.
We often become obsessed with this singleton and this element, transfixed by everything they archetypically represent. The singleton can become a loose cannon and act as an energy sucking vampire, residing in its house like in a sinister castle, from where it wreaks havoc.
This sounds stressful, and quite rightly so. But what makes these tricksters so fascinating, is that they often represent the hidden gold in a chart. A magical sore-point, which can challenge the other elements to creative ways of expressing themselves. We will look at elements and all planets plus Chiron and Lilith to shed some light on how they can dominate a chart.
