Ok i will skip definition of yod but i will tell what your main purpose of your life is.... Find the planet and the opposite house it occupies(this house where you will find your yod's purpose and answer) which is getting quincunx from sextiling planets and then look below for the definition.

Great info, nice and simple!

My most prominent yod points exactly to Neptune and with slightly wider orb to Moon (which is conjunct Neptune.)

The planet getting quincunx aspect from other 2 planet is where you will look for the definition below. The point where yod shows is the indicator of which house you will find your answer.

For example My yod includes moon in first, neptune in 11th and jupiter 6th. I am chosen to expand since jupiter is the apex planet but i will find my answers in 12th house while doing apex planets(6th) house work since it is the opposite house of apex planet's occupition.

good stuff.

k, apex is neptune in 3rd, quincunx moon in 10th, sextiling chiron in 8th.

NEPTUNE � Symbol of music, mysticism, higher love, sacrifice, inner vision, transcendence, duplicity, subterfuge. Your special purpose involves the higher mysteries and the heights of consciousness.

CHOSEN TO MYSTIFY, BEWITCH, ENCHANT, INSPIRE

opposite house would be the 10th.

10th
Career, social reputation, destiny, public life, authorities

i have another one but the apex is chiron in 8th inconjunct neptune in 3rd, sextile pluto i think.

3rd
Travels close to home, siblings, neighbors, mental acuity, communication


Opposite house would be 9th (12 - 3 = 9).. 9th house purpose is as hard as 12th house since they are both abstract in some way.

Note: I dont know whether if yod including chiron is valid or not.

Mert, nice and helpful info. That too when i have one in a snynastry. If u wld like, pl go check in personal readings thread. I have put up a synastry. There is a yod in it. If you would like to throw any light on it and even otherwise on the whole thing. Does this yod interpretation logic work for synastry also?

I dont know if it can be applied to synastry as well but in composite chart when you are together and if you have a yod in composite, then together you both can have a mission. If your mate planet's activates your yod or completes your quincunx so formes a yod, then this relationship can be a puzzle . It will require some work. I would gladly look and try to help but my knowledge is limited to what i quoted here.

Thanks for the information, Mert! This is a great topic for learning.

I had forgotten, I have TWO Yods in my chart (not one as I noted i abcd's thread).. I'm going to try interpreting mine per your notes:

My Venus in Pisces/4th is the apex of one Yod, balancing the energies of rxSaturn in Leo/9th and rxPluto in Libra/11th. In my home life/relationship with my parents, I am to unite the introspective Saturn/Pluto energies in the fields of education and friends, by building my career and public profile. Is that right?

My rxSaturn in Leo/9th is the apex of the other Yod, balancing Venus in Pisces/4th and Mars in Capricorn/2nd. My introspective Saturn is to bear the responsibility of balancing my management of finances and my loving Piscean nature through insightful communication and mental acuity.

Did I do it right?

Thanks for the fun exercise!

My Saturn/Uranus conjunction in Sag/12th is the apex of mine. I guess changing or revolutionizing foundations is mine? Ha, no wonder the top dogs don't like me. The opposite house is the 6th, so I'll find this purpose in the area of service/work. Cool.

First YOD:

Aries Ascendent sextile 2nd house Gemini Chiron forming the base

Scorpio Pluto in 7th house forming the fulcrum, inconjunct the other two planets.

Pluto opposes my 1st house Taurus moon at the Yod midpoint.

Second YOD:

7th house Scorpio Pluto sextile 9th house Capricorn Neptune forming the base

2nd house Gemini Chiron forming the apex.


I would appreciate any insights.

Have not looked at the sextile part of the Yod so can't discuss it but the quincunx alone seems to be a life purpose.
Do you agree?

So my YOD pointing to Pluto in the 7th house is asking me to overcome and let go of the ego of the Aries ascendent, heal my communication issues represented by Chiron in Gemini in the second house, which will allow me to open up to others and let necessary transformations take place.

Plutonian transformations opposing the moon in the first house will then heal my emotional issues related to self-worth and self-image.

Hey guys!
I'm bumping this lovely thread, because I think yods are a bit neglected topic and also some kind of mystery for me. I wish there was more talk about experience people have with them. I never quite understood the quincunx aspect in a sense I always interpreted it like some kind of square. But I think I understand it more when put in the context of yods. The immennse energy that is concentrated in the focal point, resulting from the stress that two quincunxs make, could result in constant stress or put in a productive channel to create something meaningful with the help of the square. Would you agree that the key word that describes quincunxes is stress?

Although I don't have a yod theoretically speaking, it helps me a lot if I imagine I have it when trying to comprehend four of my aspects.

Mars sextile Jupiter (3)
Mars quincunx Neptune (1)
Jupiter quincunx Uranus (2)
Uranus conjunct Neptune (6)

I know that the conjunction between Neptune and Uranus is kinda wide, but when I interpret it as apex of yod it makes so much sense. It is also in complete harmony with my NN in Aqua in 12th house also Neptunian and Uranian energy. I interpret it in learning to be compassionate, accepting, feeling the troubles of humanity and transform them into a rebellious spirit, actions, revolutionize to help improve the world for the sake of the less unfortunate. My problem is that it's all happening in the eleventh house, which can be a little too abstract and intellectual, although I know it also represents organizations, groups, community agenda etc.

The problem I'm having and a great setback in my optimism and will to do something meaningful, is that studying no longer represent a challenge for me I think I've got the analysis of the problems covered, my analytical skills have reached a point where I can now move onto actually doing something. Last few months I've been telling everybody how I feel stuck, because I have all this knowledge, wishes, ideals, the bigger picture, but it does not satisfy me anymore, I need to CREATE. And voila, hence the house opposite the apex, the fifth house. I can't wait to start working in schools (Jupiter in 6H) and start doing something new (Mars), educating children, counselling (4H Gemini). I don't lack motivation for doing that, but I fear that my ideals (11H Neptune, Uranus) won't be able to reach reality (6H and 4H).
Maybe I'm just overthinking and am overwhelmed by the things that should be changed. Too many ideas and lack of using energy for one particular solid idea.

I'm adding my chart, for better visualization.


What are your yods? How do they affect your life?

Hello Belba,

1990, right?

There's something I'd like to tell you.
It's an advice.

Well, no...
Not really, it's something I'd like you to keep in mind, nothing more and nothing less.

Please, read yourself.

And I fear, that at certain point... you may think that... you need someone to Help you to reach that 'reality'.

I don't know who 'that person' could be.

Those who have a chart like yours, tend to associate with very different persons, many times 'the wrong person'.

I'd like you to...
just be careful about that.

and...

- I don't see major difficulties in your career, frankly.

Honesty in associations might be the big deal.
Mars Square Mercury. 7H
Mars quincunx Neptune.
Sun 7H / Moon.

Thanks for your kind words of advice.

Yes, I am a 1990 kid.

Where do you see that I might be looking for Help from the wrong person? Is it my seventh house? What in my chart tells you that?

Should I strive to become more self-sufficient and self-reliant? Until now life has provided me with mentors that have helped me grow into a better person. I'm very careful with whom I "associate", whom I trust and few are the people that I completely rely on... In that sense your advice surprises me but yes, I feel I have a potential to greatly depend upon a certain person (I might be a black sheep in the family, but I am still in so many ways entangled with my parents)... I might, when I become financially independent, look for other kinds of dependency... maybe these are the ones you warn me about?

The heart is lovely, thank you. I shall be careful

By honesty you mean I should be always honest, because I sometimes I tend bend some things for various reasons?

I was just wondering, what made you to write to me, do you have any personal experience similar to mine, elements in the chart?

Take care!
