As noted in previous articles on these “Fingers of God,” we have entered a period of double interlocking Yods, a very spiritual configuration but demanding tremendous sacrifice and necessary adjustments so we can get spiritually focused. These prepare us for the Grand Irrationality being triggered multiple times in April. The Mars Yod is exact today and tomorrow!!
I’ve written about how this works in many of the Lunation articles, since the occupied span of planets has dominated the landscape since last Autumn. We’ve been in a time when the planets all occupy a span that begins with Saturn in Scorpio, includes planets in Capricorn and Pisces, and closes with Uranus in Aries. This span has been focused through Jupiter in Gemini.
So we’re all approaching life through the structured intensity of Saturn in Scorpio, addressing something to be eliminated or regenerated in a mature, patient and structured way. We move through the rest of the planetary energies, and end with the innovative Uranus in Aries, showing us a new path to individuality, whether as individuals or the entire human race.
This is then focused through Jupiter in Gemini, also the subject of numerous articles since Jupiter has been the nozzle of the on-going “Bucket” Jones pattern dominating the landscape.
However, with Mars, Venus, and the Sun all entering Aries, we’ve now begun a series of second Yods, made from those planets each sextile Jupiter in Gemini and quincunx Saturn in Scorpio in that sequence. That makes Saturn the nozzle, or focus, of the second Yod.
Strangely, due to where the inner planets are transiting at this time, it also makes Saturn a “second handle” or nozzle of the overall pattern, as I’ve explained in past Lunation articles. We are in a strange time of having the planets all in a “Bucket” Jones pattern, but with two different handles, or nozzles, depending on where the Moon is at any given moment. And they’re BOTH the focus of the interlocking Yods going on right now!
This second “Bucket” begins with the Pluto in Capricorn, moves through planets in Pisces and Aries, and ends with Jupiter in Gemini, and gets focused through the Saturn in Scorpio. So we’re looking at a simultaneous occurrence of two different spans focused through two different planets that also happen to be the focus for interlocking Fingers of God. This is an extraordinarily rare event.
This means that we have productivity going on in the Scorpio and Capricorn areas of our lives while having to focus through Gemini, and productivity going on in the Aries and Gemini areas of our lives while having to focus through Scorpio. Things are giving way, adjustments and sacrifices are being made, but it’s to focus the larger productivity that’s going on.
That productivity links several areas of our lives, both similarly and differently. This is a spiritual “chiropractic adjustment” for all of us wherever these planets occupy in our charts.
As I noted in part 3, the planetary mechanics of the two Yods indicate that the first Yod shows Saturn productivity with Pluto focused through Jupiter, the second one shows Mars, Venus, and Solar productivity with Jupiter focused through Saturn. The first adjusts all 3 planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto) to get focused through expansive Jupiter, while the second adjusts all 5 planets (Sun, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn) to get focused through Saturn’s structuring persistence.
This makes wherever we have Jupiter and Saturn transiting in our charts of major importance, since the former focuses a Jupiter teaching, opportunity, protection, or path of expansion, while the latter focuses a Saturn teaching, duty, responsibility, or authorship. Some will have to sacrifice the old to make way for the new, others will have to make the old work to feed the new, and others will have to give up some things for a while to make way for other things that must be done now and cannot be done later.
As I did with the Jupiter focus in part 2, here’s the Saturn focus for the second Yod. Taken together, they show major adjustments and sacrifices wherever we have Aries, Gemini, Scorpio, and Capricorn, with secondary adjustments and sacrifices wherever we have Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. As you can see, these interlocking Yods are going to bring everyone huge adaptations with productive sacrifices across most areas of their lives.
The following birthdays have been restructuring these areas of their lives since late November, with now in late March and early April the big squeeze. What we accept and restructure now will yield rewards in September and October 2013.
Of course these are done for the Solar chart positions. If you know your chart, then look to the house where Saturn is transiting to see where to get focused so you can grow into your spiritual authority.
For now, concerning the Yod created by the Aries planets sextile Jupiter quincunx Saturn,
April birthdays will see the focus on partnerships and new ways of relating to others as equals.
May birthdays will see the focus on work, health, and preparing for future opportunities.
June birthdays will see the focus on play, creativity, and children.
July birthdays will see the focus home, family, and their personal past.
August birthdays will see the focus on siblings, learning, and short journeys.
October birthdays will see the focus on self-image and their physical bodies.
November birthdays will see the focus on motives and achieving closure in several life areas.
December birthdays will see the focus on friends, goals, and ambitions.
January birthdays will see the focus on profession and public standing.
February birthdays will see the focus on higher learning, travel, philosophy, and spirituality.
March birthdays will see the focus on loss, death, regeneration, and legacies.
So that you don’t have to go back to part 2 for the areas Jupiter is focusing, here they are again. This deals with the Yod created by Saturn sextile Pluto quincunx Jupiter. Where Jupiter is transiting shows you where you’ve been getting focused since December so you can expand spiritually.
April birthdays will see the focus in values, resources, and money.
May birthdays will see the focus on self-image and their physical bodies.
June birthdays will see the focus on motives and achieving closure in several life areas.
July birthdays will see the focus on friends, goals, and ambitions.
August birthdays will see the focus on profession and public standing.
September birthdays will see the focus on higher learning, travel, philosophy, and spirituality.
October birthdays will see the focus on loss, death, regeneration, and legacies.
November birthdays will see the focus on partnerships and new ways of relating to others as equals.
December birthdays will see the focus on work, health, and preparing for future opportunities.
January birthdays will see the focus on play, creativity, and children
February birthdays will see the focus on home, family, and their personal past.
March birthdays will see the focus on siblings, learning, and short journeys.
We’ve all been practicing dealing with this energy since the Winter Solstice of 2012. Now we get to finish the larger life lessons related to this specific Yod, while preparing to incorporate a different set of Yod lessons in a few days involving the planets at 11-12 Aries sextiling Jupiter and all quincunxing Saturn. So now we get a Jupiter focus involving “expansion through sacrifice,” to be followed by an Aries-Gemini productivity focused through Saturn in Scorpio also involving “expansion through sacrifice” energy.
To get a sense of all the factors in these interlocking Yods, please go back and study parts 1, 2, and 3, since each of them will explain some element of this very complex, unique, and powerful set of planetary configurations. All that we are adjusting and sacrificing is preparing us for the major forks in the road we’ll encounter in April, because after Venus, Sun, and Mars leave the Yods, they’ll move into the Aries zone of the Grand Irrationality, setting all our lives into serious new directions faster than you can imagine.
I’ll be doing an in-depth article about what this will mean for all of us. It will be a radical time of rapid developments that will throw us into our future, and critical choices will be made in the life area we have Aries that will totally and profoundly impact many other areas of our lives. Right now, the critical zones of influence include 7-14 Capricorn, 29 Aquarius-6 Pisces, 20-27 Aries, 12-19 Gemini, 3-10 Leo, 24 Virgo-1 Libra, and 15-22 Scorpio.
If you have a planet or Ascendant in any of these areas, expect your life to quicken with the need to act quickly and efficiently at several points in the first three weeks of April. This is made an even bigger deal because Jupiter will be in the Gemini zone, making four points of a Great Septile, or 7 Pointed Star pattern highly active all the time. When the Moon moves through any of the 7 zones, it will trigger all the influences simultaneously. More to come, so stay tuned!

ps - this is posted with 9 Virgo on the Asc in a sextile to Saturn and Yod with Mars in Aries as the focus. That means this article forms a triple Yod!
