An aspect configuration in which two planets in sextile both form a quincunx (inconjunct) with the same third planet; it is given a karmic connotation. Sometimes called the Finger of God. See also Finger of God.
A planetary configuration consisting of two planets making an aspect of 150 degrees on both sides of a third planet. The yod is sometimes called "the finger of God" aspect, indicating that a person may have a special mission or purpose in life.
Three planets in a pattern where the aspects are 2 quincunxes and a sextile. Considered to be a time of fateful decision making where you must rely on gut instinct. After you take one path at this "fork in the road", there's no turning back.
The Yod is made up of two planets that form a sextile, and both planets also form a quincunx (150 degrees) to a third planet. The third planet and these two planets are generally in incompatible signs, either by element or quality, and thus do not naturally work together easily. There is an element of destiny in such a pattern. The individual must adapt to the energies or experience great pains.
A powerful aspect. See Finger of God.
In astrology a yod is said to form whenever one planet forms quincunxes (150Â° aspects) to two other planets that are separated by a sextile (60Â° aspect). The two planets in the sextile, being in complementary elements (fire and air or earth and water) work very well together, but the sign to which both of them are quincunx is of a dissimilar element to the other two and possesses characteristics that tend to be extremely incompatible with those of the other two signs. This third planet is pulling in an opposite direction from the other two and would like to resolve, but the astrological energies of the signs are so vastly different that they do not notice each other.
