I'm very confused on Yods. Until recently, I had never heard of them. So, obviously, I'm a beginner.

I plugged in my natal chart, and the website said I had these as Yods:

Yod 1:

Pluto in 3 Scorpio (3rd house)
Chiron in 5 Gemini (10th house)
Venus in 6 Aries (8th house)
Mercury in 7 Aries (8th house)

Yod 2:

Chiron in 5 Gemini (10th house)
Pluto in 3 Scorpio (3rd house)
Neptune in 3 Capricorn (5th house)

My question is, what are yods? And how I can I then interpret the significance of these in my chart?

Welcome, my Friend


I have several articles on them. It takes quite a while to study and explain them, so I could not really do that here. As a beginner, it may be something that would be better looked at when you know more of the basics.

I wouldn't count asteroids for yods. So it would appear your chart does not have one. If an asteroid were closely conjunct a planet that does in fact help create a yod, then you would want to include it in interpretation, but that is all.

A yod is an aspect configuration in which two planets in sextile are both quincunx/150 a third planet (give or take about 3). This means the two planets in sextile create an energy exchange that finds fuller outlet in the 3rd planet, or 'stem' planet.

There is too much made of the 'finger of God' notion of this configuration, which generally involves a more focused dynamic than a one-sided quincunx normally gives, which often remains more subconscious in its dynamic until health issues or external circumstances force conscious awareness of the energies involved. The yod configuration urges one to a more purposeful effort relating to the 3rd 'stem' planet.
