Historically the astrological yod is known as "The Finger of God."
For those who are unfamiliar or have never heard of it, Yod is the astrological aspect with one sextile and two quincunxes that form a narrow triangle. The Yod, since Ancient times has been referred to as the “Finger of God”, the Yod is a fated aspect, Joan Kellogg in her book The Yod: The Esoteric( hidden) Meaning.
States rightly, in my opinion, as someone who has a Yod in their Natal Chart, that the yod contains hidden energy and information in the aspect. Which is not revealed until the Yod owner learns the lessons, needed to activate the Yodal energy.
There is an old occult saying, which is the ring will pass not, meaning someone can have something pointed out to them a million times. Indeed they can experience it 1 million times; however, they will not gain an understanding of the meaning behind their experiences. until they learn the lessons behind their experiences.
This is why it appears some individuals never learn their lessons in life, in fact, esotericically they are some things that one canonly be understood by observing them with your inner sight.
Some things in life need to be felt and intuited. not rationalised and mulled over.
In order to be understood.
This is why its improtant that we come to understand that, yes we can support others, and yes, others can support us, but as you transition into adulthood.
You are responsiable for the direction of your life, the buck stops with you, this goes for all people, regardeless if they have a yod in their astrology natal chart or not.
The yod, regardless of whether it is the finger of God, itself or not, is differently a strong aspect and can override another mundane aspect in the chart, even strong ones like oppositions and squares.
Although, all aspects, degress and all of information contained in your astrology natal chart, make up your whole, and every single part of your natal chart influences who you are, aswell as enviromental, psychological and spirtual forces and factors.
Joan Kellogg, in her book, also states that the yod is a powerful and positive energy which opens the door to higher spiritual knowledge and service, once the yod native has learned their lessons.
