Yods create issues within the charts
In Astrology, a Yod, also known as the "Finger of God" or "Finger of Fate," is a configuration formed by three planets or points, creating a long triangle on the astrological chart. The Yod involves two planets (the sextile pair) in a sextile aspect (60 degrees apart), and both of these planets forming an inconjunct aspect (150 degrees apart) to a third planet (the apex). The inconjunct aspects create a sense of tension and adjustment, while the sextile aspects provide opportunities and talents.
The Yod is considered a significant and often challenging aspect pattern, suggesting a focal point of destiny, unique talents, and a need for adjustment. Individuals with a Yod in their natal chart may feel a sense of inner compulsion or destiny related to the energies of the involved planets.
When there is a Yod in the birth chart, the focal planet is weakened due to the pressure from the inconjunctions. There is usually a feeling of disassociation with the focal planet making it hard to fully connect with it. The focal point can also be the angled houses.
Yods are karmic and can be a challenge within the chart. There is usually a boundary issue that needs to be worked on.
