In the last article we discussed the Yod, or “Finger of God,” being made between Mercury, Jupiter, and Pluto right now. I also mentioned how most of the people alive today have one or more Yods going on triggering these “expansion through sacrifice” energies in their Neptune and Pluto in their natal charts. This article elaborates on the profound effects these are creating and why.
Between 1942 and 1995 Neptune was sextile Pluto. These sextiles create potential Yods whenever a planet transits the inverse midpoint of the planets in sextile. So there are profound changes involving “expansion through sacrifice” for those with Neptune in Libra sextile Pluto in Leo (1942-1956; Yod focus in Pisces), Neptune in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Virgo (1956-1970; Yod focus in Aries), Neptune in Sagittarius sextile Pluto in Libra (1970-1984; Yod focus in Taurus), and Neptune in Capricorn sextile Pluto in Scorpio (1984-1995; Yod focus in Gemini).
Before and after these generations Neptune was/is septile Pluto, which anchors the Grand Irrationality. Planets in septile also generate integrated configurations whenever a planet moves across their inverse midpoint, generating double triseptiles. Similar dynamics also happen with planets in quintile, binovile, and square. However, the varying special configurations is an article unto itself. Today we’re mainly exploring the Yods that many different generations are experiencing as a result of past and present transits.
The Neptune in Scorpio group from 1957-60 has a Yod going on thanks to transiting Uranus in early Aries focusing their natal Neptune sextile Pluto energy. From June 2011 through March 2012, the Neptune in Sag group born between 1970-76 had transiting Jupiter making a Yod from early Taurus. And currently, from mid-June to mid-August 2012 the Neptune in Capricorn group born between 1984-88 has transiting Jupiter as the focus of a Yod.
I explained more about how this dynamic works, and its influence on those going through a Yod to their natal Neptune and Pluto, in the article
On a final note, those born in the late 1980s into the early 1990s will have Jupiter making a Yod off and on to their Neptune and Pluto for quite a few months. This should help that group to get focused on how to learn more, or expand into opportunities, or open to a higher and wider view of spiritual or philosophical truths between now and next Spring.
And Uranus will continue to force individualizing experiences for those born in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Both groups should take any and all health precautions, adjustments, and disciplines needed to adjust to health realities presenting themselves. Though some of these may seem to be beyond your control, you can still make productive adjustments that will yield results down the line.
