Alrighty folks, get ready to groove like Ritchie Dan sings …. because the YOD is in the house! And let me tell you, the YOD has a burning question for you: which came first, fate or destiny?

And hey, are they even the same thing? It’s like trying to figure out if a pineapple belongs on a pizza or not.

So let’s put on our thinking caps and dive deep into this philosophical conundrum. Are you ready? Let’s go!

So what the  heckary is a yod?

A Yod in astrology is a relatively rare aspect featuring two planets in a sextile aspect with each other, both forming quincunx aspects to a third planet.

This creates a unique shape in the birth chart resembling the letter ‘Y’.

The Yod is also known as the “Finger of Fate” or the “Finger of God” and is believed to represent a karmic mission or special destiny in your life.

The Yod is considered a significant aspect in astrology as it represents a challenging and complex energy that often requires the native to overcome obstacles and difficulties.

 

The Yod aspect in Astrology is  a million times more challenging compared to a stand alone quincunx although both a yod and a normal quincunx often require the owners to make constant changes to their lives to keep balanced.

 

The Yod aspect contains two quincunxes and a sextile and although the sextile make the quincunxes sweeter, their juices can still be harsh and bitter to swallow.

 

So far, the Yod in a birth chart. Sounds like something straight out of a magical incantation, or at least a very sour drink, doesn’t it?

 

But trust me; this is not just hocus-pocus stuff or a bad trip….still living with a YOD has its fair share of bitter sweet moments.

 

Picture this – two planets in a harmonious sextile aspect, chilling and working together like best buds.

 

But then, along comes a third planet, all up in their business with its quincunx aspect and zodiac sign drama.

 

Suddenly, the sextile party gets disrupted, and things start to get uneasy.

 

It’s like being at a karaoke night with your two favourite people, singing your hearts out, and then someone shows up with a tambourine and starts playing off-beat.

 

It can throw you off your game, but with some adjustments and compromise, the trio can still make beautiful music together.

 

So if you see a Yod in your birth chart, don’t panic.

 

Embrace the challenge and work towards finding the balance between all the planets involved.

 

After all, who doesn’t love a good harmonious trio? The more, the merrier, right….

So, as we have seen the  finger of god? is not just a divine digit descending from the heavens to point out your mistakes.

 A finger of god (also known as a yod) is a rare configuration of planets that looks like an isosceles triangle.

It’s like the universe is playing connect-the-dots with our solar system.

This cosmic triangle represents a special message or mission that the universe has for you.

Maybe it’s telling you to finally clean out your closet or try that new sushi place down the street or is it like some kind of divine manicure tool? Who knows?

All we can say for sure is that if you’re lucky enough to have a finger of god in your birth chart, you must be pretty special …yet with every blessing, comes a challenge Oh, and you thought having a Yod was all rainbows and unicorns? Think again!

While this cosmic configuration can bring out the best in you, it can also stir up some trouble. You might feel a bit restless or rebellious towards authority figures or tradition.

But don’t go flipping tables just yet. Instead, channel that energy into something productive like a creative project or a rigorous workout routine.

Who knew a triangle could hold so much power?

SO THE YOD IN YOUR CHART IS IT KARMA OR DESINTY....AND WHATS THE DIFFERENCE

The terms “fate” and “destiny” are often used interchangeably, but there are subtle differences between the two.

Fate refers to circumstances that are predetermined and believed to be out of our control, often associated with negative events or outcomes.

Destiny, on the other hand, emphasizes personal choice and the idea that our future is shaped by our actions and decisions. It implies a sense of purpose or calling that we are meant to fulfil.

While some people believe that fate and destiny are predetermined, others argue that we have the power to shape our own destiny through our thoughts and actions.

Ultimately, the difference between fate and destiny comes down to whether we believe that the course of our lives is predetermined or whether we have the ability to influence our own future.

And this is the main lesson of the yod….

It is your decision who you choose to be and the only way through obstacles….is well through…

yes, But let’s be real, sometimes life gives us a whole truckload of lemons and we’re just standing there like, “What am I supposed to do with all these?”

But hey, that’s when we need to get creative and start a lemonade stand or invite our friends over for a sour-tasting party.

The point is, even though we can’t control everything that happens in life, we can definitely control how we react to it.

Having a YOD in your natal chart is all about grabbing those lemons and making some darn good lemonade!

Funny intro….why as your gonna have to learn to laugh if you or two or more in your chart, and yes, you can have more than one!!!

First things first, let’s get the pronunciation right. It’s not “yod” as in “yoghurt,” nor is it “yodi” as in “Jedi.” It’s actually pronounced “yode,” like the first syllable of “Yoda.” Coincidence? I think not.

 Anyway, the Yod is also known as the “Finger of God,” which sounds pretty intense if you ask me.

Read More

 It’s formed when three planets align in such a way that two of them are 60 degrees apart, and both are 150 degrees away from the third planet.

 

Confused yet? Yeah, I was, when I was  first learning about Yod’s too!!!

 

So I know that the Yod sounds like a magical spell that Harry Potter might cast.

 

Now, before you start thinking that the Yod is some sort of magical wand, let me clarify that it’s actually just a triangle.

 

Yes, you read that right.

A triangle. But not just any triangle.

 

This is a special, mystical triangle that symbolises a “finger of fate” in your astrological chart.

 

So, if you have a Yod in your chart, you can blame all of your problems on this little triangle instead of taking responsibility for your own life choices…..psyche!!!! And iam not talking about Shawn and Gus here…..

 

Anyways, Taking responsibility is one of the first steps to mastering your Yod but more about that later.

 

It’s like having a built-in scapegoat! So, if you’re feeling down in the dumps, just blame it on the Yod. It’s not you; it’s the universe!

 

Infact, Maybe we should start calling it the “Wizard Finger” instead? Or the “Witchy Triangle”?

 

Either way, let’s just hope that this mystical Yod doesn’t start shooting off spells and curses like a misbehaving wand.

 

We don’t need any more chaos in our lives!

So yep the “yode” placement can be a right kick in the butt- speaking from experience, with some adjustment and hard work, this alignment can bring you luck and, at times, magic.

 

Just make sure you say “Yode” correctly, or who knows what kind of cosmic chaos we could unleash.

 

So, if you’re lucky enough to have a Yod in your astrological chart, firstly read on secondly embrace it, and if things start getting too crazy, just remember: it’s not you; it’s the Yod.

 

And with that said, I bid you farewell and oh yeah, may the Yod…. sorry YODE be ever in your favour!

What Is the definition of the Yod Pattern?

Definition of Yod in Astrology

A Yod, also known as the “Finger of God,” is a rare and powerful astrological aspect that occurs when three planets form a specific configuration in a birth chart.

It is characterised by two planets in sextile (60-degree angle) aspect with a third planet in a quincunx (150-degree angle) aspect to both.

Yods are considered significant because they represent a focal point of destiny or purpose in a person’s life.

In mythology, Yod is associated with the Hebrew letter “yod” which represents God’s hand or finger. The word “yod” itself means a small part or point, which is appropriate for the formation of the aspect.

Read More

 In astrology, the Yod aspect symbolises a person’s deeper calling, spiritual quest, or mission in life.

 

As stated earlier, the Yod is often represented in a birth chart as a triangle, with two planets forming the base and the third planet at the apex.

 

The base planets create a harmonious aspect, while the apex planet creates a sense of tension and challenge that can only be resolved by integrating the energies of all three planets.

 

The Yod works by creating a strong urge or drive in a person to fulfil their life purpose.

 

It is believed that those with Yods in their chart are often highly intuitive, spiritually attuned, and have a unique talent or gift that sets them apart.

 

However, the journey to fulfilling their purpose can be challenging and require consistent effort and growth.

 

Overall, the Yod aspect is a powerful tool for self-discovery and understanding one’s life path.

What's the karmic meaning of a yod in astrology?

The karmic meaning of a yod is complex and often interpreted differently by astrologers.

Some believe that the focal planet with two quincunxes represents a major lesson or challenge that the individual must face in this lifetime.

In contrast, others see it as a point of spiritual growth and transformation.

 

Read More

To fulfil the needs of a Yod, the individual must learn their lessons which are easy to spot by analysing the repeated themes of their life or the situation-ships that they keep finding themselves in and overcome the obstacles they create so they can fulfil their destiny.

 

The two or more planets involved in the quincunxe(s) represent areas of tension or imbalance, creating a sense of unease or discomfort.

 

The two or more planets, connected by sextile, act as the Yod’s focal point and represent the potential solution or way out of the dilemma.

 

The Yod indicates a high level of spiritual awareness and a need for inner growth and transformation.

 

Individuals with a Yod in their chart may experience sudden changes, intense challenges, and unexpected opportunities that push them beyond their limits and require them to tap into their innate wisdom and intuition.

 

The Yod is a powerful symbol of transformation and evolution, highlighting the importance of embracing change and learning from adversity to fulfil one’s highest potential.

 

As daunting as it may seem, those with a Yod in their chart have been blessed with a unique opportunity to transcend their limitations and achieve greatness through perseverance, faith, and a commitment to inner growth.

 

The journey may be difficult, but the rewards are immeasurable.

  The Main Psyche-soul-ogy of the yod and its meaning in Astrology

The Yod symbolises a deep sense of purpose and challenges that drive an individual towards achieving their destiny.

Whether a Yod configuration appears in your birth chart or through transits, it is a sign that you are being called to follow your true path and fulfil your destiny.

It may come with challenges and decisions that seem

difficult at first but ultimately lead to growth and personal transformation.

The Yod represents a significant turning point or a

critical decision that needs to be made in your life.

To understand a Yod configuration natally or via transit , it’s important to analyse the components of this aspect.

Read More

There are five components to a yod: the apex planet,

two sextiles and two qunicinxes

 

To understand the apex planet, ask yourself – what zodiac sign is it in, the house is it in natally, and what is its polarity, element and modality? ,  then answer the same questions for the two sextile planets and the two quincunx aspects formed between them.

 

Each of these components contributes to the unique energy of the Yod aspect.

 

  1. The apex planet in a Yod represents the focal point of this aspect. It holds the key to unlocking the potential of the sextile planets and directing their energy towards the individual’s purpose.

 

2. The two sextile planets represent talents, skills and resources that can be utilised to achieve one’s destiny. The sextile aspects in a Yod represent harmonious connections between two planets, providing opportunities for growth and development. They act as a bridge between the apex planet and the quincunx planets.

 

3. The two quincunx aspects between the three planets ( the planets in the sextile are both involved in their own quincunx) create tension and a sense of unease, requiring the individual to make crucial decisions and take action towards their purpose.

 

The quincunx aspects in a Yod are on the surface discordant energies, but their purpose is to create challenges that must be faced in order to achieve the potential of the aspect.

They require adaptation and adjustment to integrate their energy into the individual’s life- you must accept all sides of your personality, allowing your higher-self as much expression s your lower self and vice versa.

 

Overall, the Yod symbolises a powerful force pushing an individual towards their destiny, with challenges and difficult decisions along the way.

It is important to understand the components of this aspect to unlock its true potential and fulfil your true purpose in life.

The sextile in the yod aspect helps the Planet(s) involved both the quincunx communicate and interact better. the planet(s) in the sextile aspect know each other, that's why they are sextiling....think of it like sexting.. But the planet or planets they both ( the planets in the sextile) are quincunx too, will they don't know each other well yet!! And its these opposing energies which need to learn to work together.

Authentic/ traditional Yod’s always involve one of the main inner planets.

Yod’s formed by at least one inner planet sun, mercury, Venus , moon and mars, are strongest.

However Yod’s which are formed with the midheaven or ascendant can hold significance as stand alone Yod’s . Or when they is a traditional Yod in the chart, which includes one of the inner planets.

The whole chart must be taken into account as well as the events a person experiences in their lives and how they feel the MC or AS Yod affects them.

The Yod aspect in astrology can create relationships, experiences and events, which happen in the life of the “YOD PERSON”, not out of their own choice, but in a karmic manner- a reparative process.

It is thought by many astrologers that the individuals who have the yod aspect, are perfecting lessons and skills that they have spent manner lifetime trying to build up.

Yet in their past lives, they may have failed several times to achieve their true soul desires, so the yod aspect acts as the “ finger of God”, pushing the yod native to their fated destination.

Depending on how you look at it, the yod aspect can turn out as a blessing or curse.<br> Some people with yod have stated that, having a natal yod, whenever they are engaging in self destructive, toxic or addictive behaviours it is is like taking every step in tight shoes, until they learn the lessons of the experiences they often repeat.

Finger of god, Yods in astrology can bestow gifts such as higher intelligence or enhanced talent in spiritual fields, they can also bring about sharp turns or unusual situations in life that can lead to steep ups or downs.

And from first-hand experiences, the lows the yodel aspect drives you down to can be very low indeed, yet the highs can also be out of this World. <br>When the Yod is taking you a life adventure, you lack control over what can and will happen, and this can be positive or negative. Imagined or real, there can be a feeling of another force that controls the show from behind the scenes!

One moment you can be feeling talentless and depressed, and the next moment you discover a hidden talent, an extraordinary gift.

You can be poor then become rich all of a sudden or find themselves in rather unusual circumstances.

A progression or transit often triggers your natal Yod energy how each transit to your Natal Yod will play out depends on the progressed or transiting or natal planet that is activating your yod .

The appearance of a Yod in a birth chart

Because a Yod involves two planets in a sextile aspect with each other, both forming a quincunx aspect to a third planet, a yod can involve more than three planets, as we will discover later.

This creates a unique shape in the birth chart resembling the letter ‘Y’.

The 3 of more planets form an isosceles triangle in a birth chart.

It looks like a narrow, elongated triangle with one planet at the apex and two others at the base.

The sextile planetary aspect is considered harmonious; this means that these planets tend to work together naturally and effortlessly.

Read More

But when these sextile planets are connected to a third planet at the apex of a Yod configuration.

 

They become challenged because this third planet is located five signs away from the sextile planets and is in a zodiac sign that creates conflicting and uneasy energy to the sextile aspect.

 

All of these factors are different between the sextile and quincunx, which makes the YOD aspect challenging, although it’s not impossible to overcome.

 

So yep, to sum this point up, the sextile is an aspect that is known for its natural harmony in astrology.

 

However, the quincunx aspect is quite different, as it does not share any of the key characteristics of the planets involved in the sextile.

 

This includes polarity, i.e. yin and yang-masculine of feminine, astrological element- fire, water, air, earth, and modality- cardinal, fixed, or mutable.

 

This disrupts the natural flow of cooperation between the sextile planets, requiring adjustment and friction to find a balance between all planets and their vibrations involved in the Yod.

Key points for the main Planets at the foot of the Yod - finger of God

Yods are created by two Planets that sextile ( what Joan Kellogg calls the hands of the aspect) each other; both sextile planets also form quincunxes with a third planet ( the foot of the aspect).

The presence of Yod in your birth chart indicates the area(s) in your life you need to refine or let go of.

A yod is driving you to fulfil a goal your soul needs to grow, you may never know what this goal is, but you will be given pointers from within, or people will come into your life to provide you with experiences, which highlight the things you need to let go off.

Think of the themes of your life; which situations or people do you find yourself continuously involved in?

You may have smaller goals, yet if you have a yod present in your chart, you will have a feeling which won’t go away that you have to complete one particular task in life.
The details of which you will be blinded to until you activate the hidden energies of you Yod.

There is a fire that is pushing you to achieve something. You can understand this something through the fulcrum/foot planet and study your overall natal chart and Yod.

The Moon fulcrum (FOOT) at the finger of god, is mostly motivating you to become a nurturing force in your own life; looking at ways you block or neglect your need for nurturing, how others nurture you or how you treat others will also be major themes in this life.
You may have to look in-depth at the relationship you have/ had with your parents or primary caregivers, allow yourself to heal any wounds you have.

Karmatic ties may need to be broken, as well as letting go of old habits of seeking security without and learning to feel secure within. This foot deals with all aspects of feminine energy and how stable or unstable you are with integrating it into your life.

The mars foot of the Yod wants to look at the ways you assert yourself, and deal with your self-awareness, how you navigate your physical environment and look after your body will impact this yod foot energy, your primal life force and personality will have to be refined in some way.
It is essential to handle your life force and project your willpower in the correct ways when mars is at the foot of your Yod.

With venus at the foot of your Yod, harmony, balance, possessions and resources will be called into question as well as how you bring harmony and justice into your life; experiences will push you into managing your mental, physical or spiritual resources correctly.

Self-love will also be a big theme; you may have to learn to have compassion for yourself and not be too egotistical, unconditional love, and the right relationship with yourself and others. It is important to seek connections between things and people, including all aspects of your personality, and work to unite and not separate.

Mercury’s foot at the finger of god, wants you to look at communication, the right and wrong use and refine it in yourself and others; your early environment and relationships with your family, friends and local community will give you plenty of reflection points. Discernment of communication and relationships is significant with this yod foot, only because you can say and do something, doesn’t mean you should.

You may have a very philosophical, intellectual or spiritual nature, but you must find a practical way to use these talents correctly and not simply become an armchair philosopher. The Widening of your perspectives and giving up perfection may also be a theme of your life.
You may have to learn to accept that all people are on different levels of evolution and accept that life can never be ideal, but in accepting this fact, you can find solace.

The Uranus fulcrum in the finger of god is expected to revolutionise while, thinking of humanity as a whole, your primal urges such as those to misuse your sexual energy or aggression may be called into question, as well of the way you use your energy and electromagnetism.
Self-assertion and right use of humanities resources may also be themes, sharing and caring, freedom and growth on an individual and universal level.

Neptune a the base of the Yod ask’s for the proper use of your spiritual and addictive forces; karma is a big thing with Neptune at the foot of your Yod. Fate plays a gigantic role in your life, and you are called to let go of your negative subconscious thought patterns and handle the mystical correctly.

The accurate use of psychic energy and powers, how you serve others is also called into question, the ways you neglect or escape your responsibilities or play the victim. Letting go of rigid thought, addictive or behaviour patterns, the precise use of mind, body and soul.

Jupiter’s foot at the finger of god encourages the broadening of horizons that can occur in the form of travel, religion, higher learning, expansiveness is the keyword for this yod foot, and breaking out of your limited material outlook into higher consciousness.
Giving up past life habits of narrow mindedness and judgement, you need to allow spiritual, cultural or intellectual growth.

Saturn at the foot of the Yod indicates themes of discipline, order, structure, limitation, boundaries will be significant in your life in some way.
Tradition, parental, community or national expectations will be brought into the spotlight, personal responsibility will be needed for you to create your place in the world via your work and personal achievements. You have innate talents that can uplift others, and it’s your duty to uncover them and use them correctly.

Pluto’s foot wishes to transform the way you view yourself and others, themes of the correct use of your own or others financial, psychological and spiritual resources
learning to manage your sexual energy. You have deep insight into the occult and the human psyche; you may have to develop deep psychological strength to withstand your life lessons. Transformation is your keyword as well as destroying the old, to manifest your new.

Where Sun at the foot of your Yod ask you to look at the way you bring your willpower into reality, uncovering the ways your rigid thought and behaviours patterns may block your creativity.

Remember, the foot, in the finger of god, Yod, is the planet which the two sextile planets form quincunx too; it is all out at sea on its own. The sextile job is to focus the “Fulcrum/Foot”, Planets energy, stabilising it until its ready to stand on its own to feet, with a bit of help from friends, so to speak.

Potential Challenges of a Yod

One of the main potential challenges of a yod is that it may create an imbalance or tension between the planets involved, which can result in inner conflict or difficulty finding one’s purpose in life.

Additionally, having more than two yods in your astrology chart can amplify the disruptive effects and lead to intense internal pressure and stress. 

what is a boomerang yod - finger of god in astrology?

In Short – A boomerang yod involves planets

that oppose the foot- the apex of your YOD

The boomerang yod can be both a blessing and a curse, as it provides intense challenges but also great opportunities for growth and transformation. 

short version

The boomerang yod aspect in your natal chart means you have a planet between the two sextile planets – A.K.A as the hands of the YOD and that planet or planets is in opposition to the apex planet- the foot of the yod

longer version

As we have seen, Yods represent powerful karmic energy, spiritual lessons, and an intense sense of purpose.

 

In the case of the boomerang yod, an additional planet forms an opposition (180 degrees) to the apex planet, completing the shape of a boomerang.

 

This aspect occurs when there is a planet located between two sextile planets, forming the “hands” of the YOD shape.

 

However, unlike the traditional YOD aspect, the planet in question is not in direct sextile to the apex planet at the “foot” of the YOD.

 

Instead, it is in opposition to the apex planet, creating a unique energy and dynamic in the individual’s chart.

 

This creates a complex dynamic that involves tension, redirection, and a need for integration between the planets involved.

 

The boomerang yod aspect is a relatively uncommon pattern in astrology, but it carries with it a significant amount of meaning and interpretation.

 

Although a bit nefarious, the boomerang YOD presents an opportunity for growth and transformation, as the individual is forced to confront and reconcile opposing energies within themselves.

 

The planet in question is often seen as a point of resistance or hesitation, and the sextile planets represent areas of greater ease and flow.

 

By working through the challenges presented by the boomerang yod aspect, individuals can develop greater self-awareness and personal power.

 

The planet at the apex of the boomerang yod is often seen as the key to unlocking the potential of the configuration, but it requires the support and collaboration of the other planets to be fully expressed.

 

The planet that opposes the apex planet can bring extra challenges and obstacles, and can be many internal and external influences that seem to stop the BOOMERANG YOD owner from reaching their goals.

 

There can be many psychological, emotional and spiritual issues that must be overcome, as well as external situations and people that may have to be conquered repeatedly until you learn your lessons.

 

At times it can seem like you are living the same day over and over or the same relationships over and over, and although you may feel you have learned the lessons, so consciously, you may not understand why these themes keep repeating.

 

Yet these situations will only stop repeating themselves once you really learn the lessons they are showing you.

 

The only way to know if you have is to commit to lifelong personal and spiritual development, although it will take a lot of hard work, self-reflection and healing.

 

Yet, the end result will be a deeper understanding of yourself and the World around you.

 

The Boomerang Yod can be seen as a call to action, a push to move beyond your life’s limitations and obstacles and strive for growth and transformation.

 

It requires perseverance, resilience,  patience and a willingness to learn the lessons of the aspect; if you do this, you can ultimately achieve your goals.

 

By working with the energies of the planets involved, you can unlock your full potential and create a life that is truly fulfilling.

 

Remember, the challenges you face today are opportunities for growth tomorrow.

 

Embrace them with courage and determination, and watch as your life transforms before your very eyes.

Example of how the boomerang works in a persons life

Image courtesy of solar fire professional software

They are two yods in this chart, a tradition one with Venus as the foot, and one where Chiron is the foot in the 8th house, I would as astrology class this chart as having two yods, although Chiron is a asteroid, yet it is a asteroid rooted firmly in astrology’s psyche and the fact that there is a traditional yod in this chart also.

I will now talk about the boomerang yod in the image above…

There is a lot going on in this chart  but right now we are focusing on the boomerang yod.

As you can see in the picture Venus in the 7th house is the foot, and mars and Venus sextile, and quincunx venus.

However, the asteroid ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and the Moon act as a boomerang; this yod is a more complex and rare yod. A boomerang yod is sometimes called a focus yod.

 

This yod owner has to make sure their take care of the needs of their Jupiter, Moon, Saturn, pluto to achieve the requirements of this yod.

 

How they view responsibility- Saturn, how they expand their beliefs and control their extravagance – Jupiter.

 

And how their assert themselves- mars and how they nurture themselves and others and accept their karma- Moon.

 

Will play a big part in their life; tension is high in this boomerang yod, as they will have to manage all aspects of their personality to become more self-aware.


As the activating point for this yod – finger of god is in the first house, so this yod owner will also need them to become less co-dependent and take responsibility for their life direction.

 

They will have to manage their needs of attraction versus the needs of their Moon, managing the sexual needs of mars and the optimistic needs of Jupiter.

 

The boomerang points and planets act as extra forces to help overcome the needs of the overall yods.

 

As all these planets conjunct each other in this chart, all these energies have past life experiences of working together.

 

So this YOD owner have had plenty of time perfect all these planets needs successfully in prior lives, yet they may have misused their Venus energy but not only rules natural love expression but also authentic self expression.

 

This person may have neglected or they was forced not to be who they really are, time and time again, and therefore they need to balance and express their authentic Venus energy this lifetime.

 

So the focus yod can be more beneficial to the yod owner than a yod without any boomerang points or planets.


The heaviness of the boomerang can help the yod owner release the weight of this karmic placement a bit more quickly, but if they ignore it, they will experience the repercussions more deeply in the areas of life the boomerang yod planets control in their natal chart.

 

If mismanaged, the boomerang yod owner can be like dynamite as they bash around unaware of all this boomerang yod energy, yods must always be controlled, oh woe betide, only kidding, it’s a case of seeing you next lifetime.

 

After all, we all have free will, and if we miss the mark, reincarnation levels it out for us until we hit the mark.


Yod owners can be insecure in their abilities in their youth, battling with low self-esteem, rejection, depression, an inner feeling of discontent with no real reason why.

 

As a person with a yod can have reached all their material goals and relationship ambitions but still feel unsatisfied, this is because a yod needs you to move in a new direction this lifetime.


Yod owners have typically lived many materially and sometimes spiritually prosperous lifetimes; they innately have wisdom but have a fear of leaving their comfort zones, deeply entrenched in them. And some yod owners can fool themselves into thinking there are happy when they not, so it can be hard to help.


Yods, boomerang or otherwise, need a person to take personal responsibility for their evolution, sacrificing their debased desires in some ways for their higher needs and wants. Giving into a power greater than themselves and letting go of their own and others expectations.

 

It can be a lot, but it is a must to this very fated life; this position needs you to step out of the chorus line and impart your wealth of wisdom.


once you heal your emotional and psychological wounds and commit to overcoming the obstacles, you face to your ascension.

Hebrew and other meanings of the word Yod

The word Yod has Hebrew roots and is the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet, signifying the essential seed of creation or the source of divine power YOD of YODH  or YODE  is also considered to be the first letter of the sacred divine name.

This also shows that the Hebrew letter Yod and the YOD in your chart have great significance in the larger scheme of things, and signals the universe’s divine spark or creative energy.

The letter Yod is imbued with great significance in the realm of Kabbalah and mysticism due to its status as the smallest letter.

This is evidenced in the Gospel of Matthew, where Jesus references it during the Antithesis of the Law when he states, “One jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

The term “jot” or “iota” in this context refers to the letter Yod, frequently overlooked by scribes due to its small size and position as a mater lectionis.

In contemporary Hebrew, the phrase “tip of the Yod” is used to denote something small and insignificant.

In contrast, someone who “worries about the tip of a Yod” is characterised as being fastidious and detail-oriented.

So the Yod in your chart is asking you to look at and embrace the bigger picture and draw on faith to get you through the hard times.

Yet first, we must exhaust all other avenues until we finally learn to surrender, learn our lessons and go within to connect with our inner source of power.

By embracing the energy of the Yod, we can tap into the universal flow of creativity and the divine spark within us, allowing us to achieve greater clarity and purpose in our lives.

The energies of your YOD should be used its energy to empower yourself and manifest your dreams into reality.

To fully understand how a Yod works in a birth chart, astrologers often look at the planets involved and the houses they occupy to gain insight into the individual’s unique challenges and potential for growth.

Overall, whether viewed through astrology or Hebrew mythology, the Yod represents a powerful force that calls us to our highest potential, beckoning us to embrace our destiny and become who we are truly meant to be.

My personal reflections on how i feel about my YOD, journey.

9.5.2023

The Yod is not as blatant as a conjunction, an opposition, or even a square; a yod’s energy wants us to take an indirect approach to reconciling the differences within ourselves.

Often speaking personally, as yod owner, my life has only made sense in self-reflection, not while I was living it at the time.

In fact, at times, it was chaotic, and what infuriated me the most was the inner calling for change; in the times, I thought I was at my most happiest.

Yet if I was told directly I had to take this path to get to where I am now, I wouldn’t have taken it, but subtly I was led there – to where I am now, through experiences and my own battle with emotional and psychological instability

Although at times, we humans want results, and we want them now; this is the way of capitalism right???? still real change-transformation that really last takes time to establish.

It has to be done in increments of awareness and time because trying to change in a direct way could potentially destroy us without proper preparation.

Read More

So the Yod constantly pushes us to make small changes until we reach the mark and become our most authentic selves.

slowly pushing us out of our comfort zones


add all these things added

 

The Yod is often associated with what is known as “fixed instability,”

A seemingly contradictory concept that suggests a unique nature to this astrological aspect.

Because technically only something that is fixed is viewed as stable.

And if something or someone keeps changing it is seen as unstable.

Still the paradox of the yod is about becoming fixed in constant flux- flow, allowing yourself and your life to be mutated time and time again.

As you burn to ashes and rise like a phoneix time and time again

While there may not be a logical solution on the physical plane to the Yod’s inherent instability, it is said that resolution can be found on a higher spiritual plane.

This is perhaps why the Yod is often referred to as the “Hand of God,” or alternatively, the “Finger of God,”  offers a potential path towards seeking the divine within yourself and having faith in divine intervention at the right time.

It is also worth noting that the Yod can be thought of as existing in two dimensions simultaneously, lending to its enigmatic and powerful qualities.

As astrologers continue to explore the meaning behind the Yod, one thing remains clear – this unique astrological aspect cannot be easily explained or simplified.

Its complex nature defies simple interpretations and requires a deeper understanding of spiritual principles; each Yod and their owners are unique, and a true interpretation of a YOUD can only be done on a case-by-case basis.

In my experience, there is no one- YOD fits all!!!

Those who have a YOD in their birth chart may find themselves questioning their place in the universe and seeking answers to profound questions.

While the Yod may seem daunting, it is important to remember that it offers a potential path towards enlightenment and higher consciousness.

As we navigate through life’s challenges, let us embrace the energy of the Yod as a tool for transformation and growth.

Understanding the placement and timing of Yod aspects in a birth chart can enhance your self-awareness and provide valuable insights into your life purpose and YOD journey.

 

In conclusion to this section but not the whole blog, as i will update this page at least once a year

 a Yod in astrology is a rare and powerful aspect that symbolises a unique life lesson or purpose.

The Yod is considered one of the most challenging and complex configurations in astrology.

It represents a problematic lesson or a special mission or purpose(s) the individual must fulfil in this lifetime.

However, the Yod also brings unique gifts and abilities that can help the person achieve their mission and overcome the often complex and challenging obstacles that will come their way.

Its mythical origins are rooted in the Hebrew letter Yod and the story of the biblical patriarch Joseph.

In a birth chart, a Yod appears as a triangle formed by three planets or points, with two planets forming a sextile aspect and one planet forming a quincunx aspect to the other two.

The Yod challenges individuals to integrate the energies of these planets in a harmonious way to overcome obstacles and fulfil their destinies.

 

While Yods can be challenging, they offer opportunities for growth and transformation for those who are open to their lessons.

 

Symbolically a YOD  gives a deep sense of purpose and challenges that drive an individual towards achieving their destiny.

 

A Yod tends to be activated or reactivated in your chart when you reach a significant turning point or make a critical decision that changes your life’s direction.

 

Understanding the challenges and benefits of having a Yod in your birth chart can provide profound insight into your life purpose and spiritual journey.

 

Working with a Yod in your birth chart can be challenging, but astrological advice recommends focusing on the theme or energy of the planet at the apex, and finding ways to integrate the energies of the other two planets in a harmonious way.

 

Working with the energies of a Yod involves recognising the challenges and opportunities it presents, and using them to manifest desired outcomes.

 

This may involve tapping into intuition, creativity, or channelling divine guidance and developing skills, relationships, or resources that align with your purpose.

 

Ultimately, the key to working with the energies of a Yod is to trust in the process of unfolding and to stay open to the unexpected.

What is the meaning of the Yod in astrology last - updated October 2021

I wanted to add an update, on the yod in astrology and what it means.

song for Yod owners

“most yod owners are old souls, stuck in their ways, or who are here to teach specific lessons only, so may feel like their full potential is never being used, i.e. the feeling of being a great warrior yet a coward at the same time.

We are often blinded because if we have seen from the start, we would not be able to learn the very lesson, we need to learn, so many things going on with you.

We really should know about these placements from birth, as once I found out about my yods, i became less critical on myself, and less of a control freak and a people pleaser.

Which was some of the few paradoxes of my yods, so yes, also the feeling of looking for an external person or service, job title, etc to fulfil us, when it is only own true inner reflection and acceptance of our shadow and our light.

Balancing all aspects of ourselves, which will set us free.

Read More

It takes time , to bring yourself  solace and to find your direction, yet the yod often just drags us along, and we may die, never really know if we fulfilled our purpose, maybe that’s the whole, purpose of the yods, letting go, going with the flow, gaining inner peace.

 

Learning to calm the internal storms and rages inside, unrevealing the many false self’s we have built up, so when the world and its events try to push us , we stay solid in our inner knowing.

 

I found it’s about accepting ourselves for who you are now, without judgement, with deep love and compassion, then you can do the work, which the yods require of you.

 

Which from my work so far with yod owners, really seems to centre on themes of control, self deceit, living in the past, imbalance, impatience, double-checking- lost in intellect.

 

Myself included in all the above, I know we have been programmed as human beings to hate our shadow and bad points.

 

But from experience, I have learned it is in the accepting, healing and managing, of all aspects of you, is where life authentically begins.

 

As you can see, my style is direct, it’s never to induce any negative feelings but to show you a direct path out.

 

Yod’s can make you flip flop from one stance to the next within 24 hours. The best you can do is just see through the tension.

 

By simply becoming aware , that this is how life is going to be and the best I can do is to train myself to see through the illusion, especially the ones you have within yourself. 

 

Self awareness can be the highest calling , when you have a yod in your chart. This talk from Anthony Demello can help you.

 

It is long, but hey so is life, maybe you will find gems within this talk, like i did. Not directly about Yod’s but it helps with the practicalities of life, and why most of us run around in misery creating our own groundhog day-everyday.

 

YODS, AS WELL AS ALL OTHER ASPECTS AND FACETS, of your natal chart, are not easy to navigate, life,  It’s not simple, and we will never have all the answers

But maybe that’s the whole point….

Effect of Having Multiple Yods in a Chart

So we have driven the message on this blog that people with a yod in their chart are said to have a special spiritual mission in life.

The impact of having a yod in your chart can be both positive and challenging.

The yod energy puts pressure on the person to find and fulfil their purpose, gifts, and talents in life.

Having more than two yods in your astrology chart is even rarer, and indicates a life path that is full of intense spiritual challenges.

A yod’s spiritual and esoteric meanings are connected to the energy of transformation, inner growth, and higher consciousness.

Psychological Effects of a Yod

The psychological effects of having a Yod in your birth chart can be profound. ‘

Those who have a Yod often express a sense of feeling “different” or “outside of the norm.” They may struggle with making decisions and feel conflicted about their life path.

Additionally, Yod bearers may have a heightened sensitivity to the energies around them, making them more intuitive and empathetic towards others.

This sensitivity can also lead to feelings of overwhelm and anxiety if not properly managed.

Another psychological effect of having a Yod in your  birth chart is a tendency towards perfectionism.

Yod bearers may be constantly striving for an ideal and may struggle with feeling like they have fallen short of their own expectations. This can lead to crippling feelings of self-criticism or even self-doubt.

 

In addition to the effects mentioned above, individuals with a Yod in their birth chart may also experience a sense of mission or purpose in life.

 

They often feel driven to make a difference in the world and use their unique gifts and talents to serve others.

 

However, this sense of mission can also lead to feelings of pressure or overwhelm, especially if they struggle to find clarity on their specific path or purpose.

 

Yod bearers may also have a tendency towards intense and complex relationships, both romantic and platonic.

 

They may be drawn to individuals who challenge them intellectually or emotionally, but these relationships can also be draining or even tumultuous if not approached with mindfulness and communication.

 

Furthermore, those with a Yod in their birth chart may have a deep connection to spirituality or higher consciousness.

 

They may be drawn to exploring mystical or esoteric practices and may have a strong intuitive sense.

 

However, this connection to the divine can also bring up feelings of isolation or misunderstanding from others who do not share their beliefs.

 

Yod bearers may also experience a sense of karmic responsibility in their lives; although they may not know exactly what their karma imbalance is, they do know it needs to be balanced and are driven by the need to pay off their karmic debts.

 

Finally, having a Yod in your birth chart can also lead to a sense of spiritual awareness and a desire for a deeper understanding of oneself and the universe.

 

Yod bearers may be drawn towards spirituality, meditation, or other practices that help them connect with their inner selves and the greater world around them.

 

However, this can also lead to feelings of isolation or difficulty fitting in with mainstream society.

 

Nevertheless, with self-awareness and diligent self-care practices, those with a Yod can harness their unique gifts and use them to live a fulfilling and purposeful life; they may be very successful in spiritual or artistic projects.

 

Overall, having a Yod in one’s birth chart can bring about both challenges and gifts.

 

 It is crucial for individuals with this aspect to actively work towards finding balance and managing the unique energies that come with it, while also being open to exploring their spiritual side and finding ways to connect with the universe and themselves.

 

Mindfulness and communication can play a crucial role in this journey.

 

Practising mindfulness can help Yod bearers stay grounded and centred amidst the often-overwhelming energies they may experience, while effective communication can help them bridge the gap with people who may not share their beliefs or understand them fully.

 

With a mindful and communicative approach, those with a Yod can navigate life’s challenges and tap into their unique gifts to create a fulfilling and purposeful life.

Guidance for Working with a Yod in the Natal Chart with numerous examples of various types of yods and how they could play out

It is important to work with the specific energy of each planet involved in the Yod and to pay attention to the apex planet’s house placement to better understand how it will manifest in your life.

Additionally, if someone has two or more Yods in their chart, it can indicate a complex set of circumstances that may require a deeper exploration of their past lives.

Understanding the energy of the planets involved in a Yod can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-awareness.

Each planet has its own unique qualities and influences, which can be amplified or muted depending on their placement in the chart.

When working with a Yod, it is beneficial to take note of any aspects or transits that may be affecting the planets involved.

This can give insight into current challenges or opportunities that may arise from working with this energy.

In some cases, the apex planet in a Yod may represent an area of your life where you need to focus your attention and put in extra effort, while the other planets may act as supporting energies that can help you achieve your goals.

It is also important to consider the house placement of the apex planet, as this can give further insight into how this energy will manifest in your life.

 

Read More

For example, if the apex planet is in the 7th house, it may indicate a need to focus on relationships and partnerships.

 

A yod involving Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto can bring about a deep spiritual transformation and a desire to expand your consciousness.

 

A yod involving Venus, Saturn, and Uranus may indicate sudden changes in relationships or finances, as well as a need to break free from old patterns and restrictions.

 

A yod involving Mars, Uranus, and Chiron, can bring about intense healing and transformation in the areas of personal power and self-expression.

 

This alignment may also bring unexpected events that challenge our sense of identity and force us to confront unresolved wounds from the past.

 

Another example is that you have a Yod with Jupiter as the apex planet and Mercury and Pluto as the other planets.

 

This may indicate a need to use your communication skills (Mercury) to transform (Pluto) your beliefs and expand your worldview (Jupiter).

 

You may find success in areas related to teaching, writing, or public speaking.

 

On the other hand, if your Yod involves Saturn as the apex planet, and Uranus and Neptune as the other planets involved, this may indicate a need for structured innovation (Saturn and Uranus) in spiritual or creative pursuits ( Neptune).

 

You may need to balance the unconventional with the traditional to succeed in these areas. Your Yod may also indicate a need for discipline and hard work to manifest your creative or spiritual visions.

 

Another example, Let’s say you have a Yod with Mars as the apex planet, and Venus and Saturn as the other planets involved.

 

This may indicate a need to balance your assertiveness (Mars) with diplomacy (Venus) in order to achieve long-term success (Saturn). You may find success in areas related to leadership or business management.

 

Alternatively, suppose your Yod involves Neptune as the apex planet, and Mercury and Sun as the other planets involved. In that case, this may indicate a need for imaginative thinking (Neptune) to express yourself creatively (Sun) through communication or media (Mercury ).

 

You may find success in areas such as writing, film-making or advertising where you can use your creativity to capture people’s attention and convey a message.

Your Yod may also indicate a need to incorporate spirituality or intuition into your work to connect with your audience truly.

 

If you have multiple Yods in your chart, it is important to explore them further, as they may indicate a complex set of circumstances that require deeper reflection and understanding.

 

Here are some examples of how two yods in a natal chart will work out

 

If a person has two Yods in their natal chart, it can indicate a complex and unique life path.

 

Each Yod will have its own specific theme, which may complement or conflict with the other.

 

The way these themes manifest in the person’s life will depend on the signs and houses involved.

 

For example, suppose one Yod involves Jupiter as the apex planet, and Saturn and Uranus as the other planets involved. In that case, this may indicate a need to balance tradition with innovation to achieve success and growth.

 

 On the other hand, if the second Yod involves Mars as the apex planet and Neptune and Mercury as the other planets involved, this may indicate a need for assertive, creative communication that incorporates spirituality or intuition.

 

The person may find success in areas related to leadership or business management while also pursuing creative projects that allow them to express themselves in unique ways.

 They may have a strong sense of balancing tradition with innovation and incorporating spiritual or intuitive elements into their work.

 

Another example of having two yods in your birth chart so if one Yod involves Venus as the apex planet and Saturn and Neptune as the other planets involved; this may indicate a need for balancing practicality with idealism in relationships.

 

On the other hand, if the second Yod involves Mercury as the apex planet and Jupiter and Uranus as the other planets involved, this may indicate a need for balanced communication that incorporates both traditional and innovative ideas to achieve success.

 

The person may find success in fields related to creativity, such as writing or the arts, while also balancing practical considerations in their relationships. They may have a strong sense of communication and innovation while valuing traditional ways of thinking and doing things.

 

Overall, having two Yods in a natal chart can indicate a complex but ultimately fulfilling life path where the individual has the potential to find success in multiple areas by utilising their unique skills and perspectives.

 

Working with a skilled astrologer or therapist can be helpful in uncovering any unresolved issues or patterns that may be blocking your growth and potential.

 

Remember, the energy of a Yod can be both challenging and transformative, but with awareness and mindful action, it can lead to great personal growth and spiritual evolution; working with a Yod in your chart requires a combination of self-awareness, intuition, and understanding of esoteric principles to navigate its unique influence.

Example of how having three yods in your natal chart could play-out

Having three Yods in a natal chart can indicate a life path of multiple challenges and opportunities for personal growth and spiritual evolution.

Imagine the first Yod involved the Sun, Pluto, and Mars; this may suggest that the person has a strong desire for power and transformation in their life, but may struggle with balancing their ego-driven desires with their relationships and responsibilities.

The second Yod involving Venus, Uranus, and Saturn may indicate a need for creativity and innovation in relationships and career, but also a need to balance these desires with practical considerations and responsibilities.

Finally, the third Yod involving Jupiter, Neptune, and the Moon may suggest a spiritual calling or desire for deeper meaning and purpose in life, but the individual may struggle with finding their place in the world and connecting their spiritual beliefs with practical reality.

Navigating three Yods in a natal chart can be complex and challenging, but it also offers tremendous potential for growth and transformation, but this is how I would suggest a client work with them, in-depth analysis of how to integrate the three yods above.

I would say to effectively work with three Yods in a natal chart; you must first recognise and embrace the challenges and opportunities each configuration presents.

For the first Yod involving the Sun, Pluto, and Mars, shows it is important to focus on balancing personal power and the desire for transformation with compassion and understanding towards others.

As you navigate your life with, one, two or more Yods in your chart, it is important to stay open to the possibilities that come your way.

Embrace your unique perspectives and talents, and use them to find success and fulfilment in areas that may seem unconventional or unexpected.

Remember to balance practicality with idealism, and to incorporate both traditional and innovative ideas in your communication and actions.

You have the potential for great personal growth and spiritual evolution, but it may require some self-awareness, intuition, and guidance from a skilled astrologer or therapist.

Trust in yourself and the universe as you embark on this be flexible not all situations in your life need solving; sometimes walking away is the best you can do, and for others waiting is your only option; you dont need to know all the answers as Karen Hamaker-Zondag, says in her yod book “The Yod Book: Including a Complete Discussion of Unaspected Planets” -”

Ultimately The Yod in our charts points out areas in our lives where we have to learn how to let go and trust that the universe knows what it’s doing.” Keep this in mind as you move forward, and trust that you are on the right path towards fulfilling your unique potential.

Implications of a Yod, Poem.

Fears appear in every step of your walk
A mystical force drives you on
Talent is unbounded
Yet theres a block
Stunted as you try to create
Call it fate
A neurotic star
Making your actions
Unwittingly psychotic
Why did you do that?
You don’t really know
A need to build trust
And to flow
But hey, we humans like to control
Finding it hard
Inside tearing apart
Goals out of reach
Distressed and unrested
Always being tested
Is this what you call special?
Driven to be a bit mental?
Even when you try your best
To be rational and have control
Illusive purpose
That won’t reveal itself
Insightful revelations
Seem profound
I got somewhere to go
I need to reach my destination quick
Yet I don’t know where it is
Just that I need to get there
I swear I want to stay with you
But I pulled away from you
Hot and cold, mostly blue
Hues of happiness
Sometimes shines through
Still, I cannot even enjoy
The fun or the touches
which grasp my hand
I have a problem to solve
Conundrum it is not humdrum
For even a Rubiks cube can be solved
With perseverance and patience
Activation in the middle
For its all about balance
Equilibrium as you enjoy
The many facets of chaos
Bipolar and depression innate
In your fate
Still, we have the sun, we have the rain
Time and time again.
