Becky Davis

I was just wondering how the yods work in a solar returne. I wish I could afford a persanal reading from you as there is a lot activity in this years solar returne. Pluto/sun, Uranus/sun, sun/Venus/mars, interlocking yods? Softwear reports are not that good for putting it all together. My birth info is 03/31/1972. Butte Montana 3:02 am. I know you are an Aries to and I am wondering what you have to say about the year ahead for us;).


Hi Becky - Well, seeing how these affect your life is sprinkled throughout these three articles and the fourth to come on Monday. The places of focus for the Jupiter Yod is in part 2, while the focus of the Saturn Yod is coming in part 4.

Software could never do this; software reports are only as good as the astrologer writing them, and very few understand these sorts of complex interactive dynamics where entire configurations are interlocked with other configurations. That's the limitation of machines and why a human astrologer trained in such things will always be better than any report generated by software.

Reading a solar return is not the same as reading a natal chart, though most astrologers don't know that. For the benefit of those who know some astrology, remember the natal is everything. I really can't do an entire class here on the blog on how these Yods would work out in a SR chart, since that's the crux of the Art of Synthesis. It would literally take a half-dozen classes via webinar to get it all out for application practice.

You have natal productivity wherever the Saturn sextile Pluto inhabits your chart. These are focusing through wherever Jupiter in Gemini is transiting in your chart. This is forcing adjustments and sacrifices wherever you have Sag, Cap, Aquarius, and Pisces.

You also have natal productivity the coming year wherever the Aries planets are sextiling your Jupiter. These are focusing through wherever Saturn in Scorpio is transiting your chart. This is forcing adjustments and sacrifice wherever you have Aries, Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Then these work out the same way this year via where they are and what they rule in the SR. But ultimately it must all be related back to the natal rulers, and how you're responding to the natal planets in your chart.

At this point I'll note that in this SR you (and I) have a Sun square Pluto. How that works out this year somewhat depends on our natal Sun Pluto aspect, and how we've dealt with those energies in our lives. Again, reports just don't cut it. I have a natal Sun trine Pluto. Ordinarily hard Sun - Pluto transits are difficult for people, but I've made some of the best decisions of my life when transiting Sun afflicted Pluto, since my understanding of these forces (natal trine) has enabled me to release energy or turn corners at that time (transiting square). In this case that square in my SR also configures with transiting Pluto trine my Venus and the SR Sun trine my natal Asc and sextile my natal Moon. As you can see, the Art of Synthesis is somewhat complex.

Remember too that since you have a close Sun conjunct Mercury at 11 Aries, both these planets are in a Yod created by transiting Jupiter and Saturn. In the SR Jupiter is sextile these regardless of the SR. But while Jupiter will move on, the sextile effect will continue, and the SR Yod will be re-triggered when the transiting planets again sextile your Sun and Mercury and Saturn again quincunxes them in the Autumn.

Of note is that transiting Saturn will sextile your natal Jupiter for most of the Spring and Summer. This will echo the Yod created by transiting Venus conjunct Saturn sextile transiting Mars conjunct Pluto of last November to where Jupiter just hit its station. So Jupiter's SD point quincunxes your natal Jupiter and leaves 7-8 Scorpio as the void zone where a Yod will be made. Here remember that a quincunx has no more than a two degree orb, since if it's any larger it's a triseptile and if it's smaller by more than 4 it's a biquintile.

Look to where Jupiter and Saturn occupy and rule in the SR chart. These will be the areas this year where the focus will be, probably via events related to those houses and where they rule. But they will affect you according to where they are and what they rule in the natal chart. And this only scratches the surface of the subject. If it's any consolation, it's also in my SR and I've been studying possible ways it will manifest and still discovering things.


I don't know about squeezing, but I do sense the draining away.


I feel it being sucked up, spit out. Disintegrating. Reorganizing, synthesizing.


What type of "sacrifices" are indicated when my natal Sun and Mercury are exactly conj on Gem 12!


Hi sunshyne - Yes, "draining away" is also a good metaphor. As is getting shot through a fire hose. As is "something's gotta give." The other adjectives and adverbs you use are other things.

Hi Susan - I'll be discussing more in part 4 on Monday. "Expansion through sacrifice" could mean that you have to give up that which doesn't allow your light to shine. Or ideas that distract rather than integrate. Or getting too scattered when there's a clear light to follow. Again, too many possibilities to go into any depth in a comment stream. Just realize you've completed 12 years of an old life and service, and have now begun a new 12 year cycle. Open to new discoveries, since what's done is done.


When you draw the interlocking Yods on a Bi-wheel with the natal chart in the middle, the resulting geometry looks like the old Cat's Cradle string game where you kind of have to knit your way in and out of the cradle ... interesting in the context of energetic movement...


Thank you for this advanced information.


Thank you Robert will look forward to part 4!


"Yes, "draining away" is also a good metaphor. As is getting shot through a fire hose. As is "something's gotta give." The other adjectives and adverbs you use are other things."

Trying to make sense of this. Can you further explain?


I see it as one, in a kinetic way. To describe a separated and eliminated part, leads to the other parts, which is all from the One. To eliminate a part, leads to reforming, regrouping, and synthesize. Thank You for allowing me to finish my thought process.

WOWZA My natal planets are: My sun is aqu, mercury-venus-jupiter-neptune in cap (5th hs), mars-saturn-pluto in scorpio (3rd hs), and Jupiter is conjunct my n.node (10th hs), and first saturn return happening this year. I'm not studied enough to know what this all means, but I think this is a big deal...


I feel and sense it all body. It is a Alchemical, Purifying, Centrifuge, like process. Crystallization. I needed no correction on what I was "reading" or picking up, and transmuting. But, it did lead into more self discovery, understanding.
