I'm just loaded tonight with the many questions I have had since reading through the newly transcribed threads. I apologize ahead of time for any confusion that I have. I am sincerely attempting to integrate and cognitively take in more than I have before.
The above got me thinking, about a Yod aspect that is centrally located within a mutable grand cross. The skipped steps planets are at the mid-point of the yod in the 10th house. Mainly I am wondering about the skipped step planet that applies to the SN and its relationship to Mars, within a chart that has numerous masochistic signatures.
What is the significance of a skipped step planet, retrograde Saturn/Chiron Pisces in the 10th that is also at the apex of a Yod aspect, with retrograde Mercury the NN dispositor and Mars in sextile, in the 3rd and 5th? (Mars squares the Moon and trines the SN Dispositor, Pluto is in the 4th and squares the NN). Saturn is also the PPP and applles to the SN. (Mercury is also sextile SN dispositor Jupiter and both form an additional Yod with the Moon.)
Does this aspect suggest that the previous life actions of the soul was completely disconnected with the skipped step planet that applies to the SN? Saturn and Mars are in a gibbous phase. (I'm still learning/understanding Mars relationship to Pluto and thus its influence in the chart-even though I've read about it before, I seem to be on a role since this last Mercury retrograde in terms of comprehending and deeply integrating planetary meanings).
From what I read about Yods posted below, it seems that the soul described above would feel a special destiny (Mercury in Leo/5th house Mars, both in the yod), and that destiny could be activated through humbling actions? If the chart is overly masochistically oriented already, and the soul has a "weak ego" or it attempting to get an ego in the current life...does this emphasize the need to know God before actualizing the Yod?
Also with two nodal dispositors sextile in Yod aspect with the Moon, could this be relative to a soul learning how to use the ego for higher purposes in the current life?
Thanks so much for your guidance and patience,
This is another very problematic pattern, the double inconjunct linked with the sextile. This was originally called a "Finger of God". This implies a feeling of destiny; a trusting of the intuition so that when you come to the “y” in the road you would know which way to go. The deeper issue is that commonly people with this pattern experience tremendous frustration. The yod promotes a knowing, a vision, an awareness from on high that is not necessarily consciously defined. It is like a telephone line inconjunct to God and receiving message that somehow seen utterly unrelated to your current circumstances or reality which then sets in motion this tremendous level of analysis in which you are now focusing on all the imperfections and lacks of your reality contrasted now with this vision from on high. So life always seems somehow less than right. It either leads to perpetual or transitory bitchiness, complaints, something's always wrong, or making crises where none need to exist. It can lead into negative self-concepts because, in their own evaluation, they cannot actualize the vision from on high. The inconiuncts focus on the issue of humility, personal and social limitations. The person is now analyzing themselves mercilessly and now comparing themselves, full phase/gibbous phase, to the authority on high. Of course they are going to seem less than adequate. So they never feel quite ready to implement or actualize the vision from on high. It is always held in the head.
Audience: Since the yod contains stress, what is the relief?
Jeffrey: It creates a really highly tuned electrical system because it is so tight. The midpoint in the sextile/opposition point of the focus of the yod is called the boomerang point.
Audience: What does that do? Does it bring in more information from on high or does it....... ?
Jeffrey: The boomerang point, of itself, is never activated unless there is a planet at that midpoint, thus creating an opposition. If there is, then there is a natural coming and going, coming and going.
Audience: What if that is a person? Venus? As sort of the symbol of whom you choose to be with?
Jeffrey: Well, you can draw a partner who keeps throwing your shit back at you. Or they mirror your shit. At the same time, they can mirror your potential, and yet you are experiencing the frustration of not being able to achieve it.
Audience: It seems that the planet on the ends of those two inconjuncts is doubly stressed.
Jeffrey: Yes, but where that planet is manifesting by House and Sign is exactly the area where this vision on high is meant to be expressed. That is the point. Through that function or area. So, the solution of the yod is to realize that the path to perfection simply occurs through action, one step at a time. Clearly, this kind of pattern is emphasizing the evolutionary necessity for humility from an egocentric point of view.
Audience: So you are listening to God instead of yourself.
Jeffrey: Yes. What you are actually trying to do, from another point of view, is to shift the very center of gravity in your consciousness and that means in this kind of culture from the left brain to the right brain, from deductive logic to inductive logic, from empirical to intuitive.
