To Yod or Not to Yod

Following on a suggestion from a pal, I’ll will probably switch to a monthly format for predictions. In that way, I can “do my duty” to my readers in a single marathon session. Then, through the month, I can “punctuate” my predictions with various entries and observations.

That said….

Today has a number of interesting aspects, and at least two of them might form a yod. Sun is inconjunct Pluto, and Mercury is inconjunct Chiron. The three signs involved are Cancer (Sun + Mercury), Sadge (Pluto), and Aquarius (Chiron). Most people say that the planet in Cancer would have to be a SINGLE planet (or two or more in tight conjunction. Mercury is “near” the Sun, but not quite so tight.

I believe that, sometimes, configurations like these can still make a statement. This would be particularly true if your Sun or Moon is in Cancer, Sadge, or Aquarius. AND it would be true for the opposing signs: Gemini, Leo, and Capricorn. (That’s half the Zodiac.)

Sun and Mercury are so familiar that I won’t dig into them, but Pluto and Chiron are worthy of examination. They will continue to speak to this same issue for some time to come: a choice between power (and a consquent expulsive kind of healing, similar to lancing a boil) and healing (through teaching and mentoring and a consequent convalescence that is more gradual).

Though I don’t really like to talk politics, I think this is about the choice between peace and war. AND, since Yod’s have ways of producing an inherent disatisfaction and “I told you so” kind of attitude, this speaks to the obvious. That is, regardless of whether war or peace is chosen, discontent will continue. Maybe the only “real” choice is what variant of discontent do we want to live with.

Moon in Pisces opposes Saturn in Virgo “about” 9:30 CDT (okay, Daily Planetary says 925 CDT) or early afternoon in Great Britain. Generally, this aspect also lights up tensions between work and play, and may even tie into resentments against power brokers (Pluto in Sadge). For many of us, we’ll want to play but have to work. Even if we do work, we’ll find it difficult to pay attention to details.

So, what will your decision be today?
