Reader’s Astrology Question: Troubles With A Relationship Yod

(Astrology Explored)


– I am new in astrology, and looked up my own and my lovers composite and synastry chart. – even something that’s called Combin chart…in our composite chart is a pattern obvious, called Yod, – I have been searching for some profound explanations, but couldn’t find anything,- in fact I got instead completely confused. Then I found your comments and that seemed very experienced!
would you please have a look at it and tell me?

Saturn is the basis of this Yod pattern, and seems to be anyway the planet that troubles us most, – at least that is, what I see…
– we have a sort of beautiful/difficult connection, on and off for almost 8 years now, and I’d love to know, what you say to all this:

Woman born January 1st 1962 in Trier, Germany,
Man born August 9th 1975 in Stockholm, Sweden

I’d be happy for any light you could bring into my darkness… thanks a lot.


The two birth charts have no birth-times so therefore you can not consider the moon position or the house cusps in evaluating the chart. All the other planetary positions are accurate and can be considered.

The yod in your chart (below) is comprised of Saturn in Aries with Pluto/Uranus in Virgo and Neptune in Scorpio. Saturn in Aries at the apex of the yod reveals limitations and restrictions. Saturn represents the things of which we are afraid, and in the zodiac sign of Aries, the fear is the loss of freedom. One suspects that at least one of you are married, as Aries is not known as the most faithful of zodiac signs. Since Saturn represents the man and his Jupiter falls on that position I’m going to venture it is him. Regardless of the state of his marriage, the intensity of the relationship with you draws him relentlessly back. Then he pushes away. This is reinforced by the Pluto/Uranus combination, with Pluto representing obsession and Uranus expressing separation. The heart of this matter is that with both this planets in Virgo, there is some impediment such as social class or the need to do the “right thing” that seems insurmountable to one or both of the parties. Neptune in Scorpio are illusions and fantasies in compulsive overdrive. No doubt you spend quite a lot of time thinking about this relationship, with your dreams and memories filling in for the love you should receive. As exciting and emotionally intense this relationship is, and no matter the sense of destiny or fate you feel, the fact is that you deserve much more. I do not see where this person is going to provide that for you.

As a Capricorn you should be much more pragmatic about your relationships, and if wasn’t for the Plutonic pull you might be. But also so many planets in the zodiac sign of Capricorn you have a tendency to feel that you aren’t worthy of a real love relationship so you take what you can get. This is the heart of your problem. Regardless of whatever is going on with him, you need to take care of yourself first. This may mean realizing the difference between fantasy and reality and doing what best for you in the long run. My advice is do what you need to do to put this relationship in perspective. Since these type of Plutonic relationships are as addictive as any drug, this may mean therapy to help you through. You really do deserve more than an on again/off again relationship with an essentially unavailable man.
