The Pluto Yod: Evolutionary Concentrate

Pluto YodCurrently, we are experiencing a Yod that's been on and off since Feb 17th, 2015. Initially, Jupiter in Leo (inconjuncting Pluto in Capricorn) was the focal point. But as of April 23, 2015, Venus in Gemini inconjuncted Pluto, and sextiled Jupiter, so the focus shifted to Pluto.

This has been a real workout for the Pluto/Jupiter inconjunct, exposing us to both sides. When Jupiter was the focus of the Yod (and Pluto was sextiling planets in Pisces) the energies of transcendence/belief (Pisces) and transformation of structures (Pluto in Capricorn) were funnelled into Jupiter, where they were expanded. Pluto's power was amplified, along with any power struggles. Faith was transformative or fanatical.

Now, with Pluto Rx as the focus (and Jupiter sextiling planets in Gemini) the energies of communication/information (Gemini) and optimistic displays (Jupiter in Leo) are being funnelled into Pluto, where they are contracted and intensified. Jupiter in Leo's big radiance is forced along a dark, narrow path. This is how Pluto encourages evolution; the more intense the experience, the more you evolve. And intensity can't happen unless things are concentrated. The result is a tremendous burst of power that can blast away rigid, outdated rules.

As Mars (June 2nd) and the Sun (June 5th) in Gemini ping the Yod, that power will be fed by what people say, write or decide. Information will be lit up by Jupiter (big promises, bold statements, hopeful ideas, a rush of choices) and then fed into Pluto, where there's potential for truth (Pluto strips away Gemini's witty facade) or a manipulative juggling of the facts. One commenter referred to this Yod as a "cattle chute," and that's an appropriate description.

What's on the other side? It will be a very different country from where you are now, but the result will depend on what initially goes in. Garbage in/garbage out OR a willingness  to deal with Pluto on Pluto's terms.

After June 5th, the Yod will dissipate.

Yods have narrow orbs, so not everyone will feel it. If you have anything from 13 to 17 degrees Capricorn, Cancer, Leo or Gemini, you're probably experiencing it right now.
