Yod: Apex planet Venus in Libra ~~~> * Uranus in Pisces ~~~> * Taurus Moon
A Yod is forms a geometric pattern called the isosceles triangle. It's commonly referred to by astrologers as the "Finger of God" as the apex point is the finger pointing to an important or fated path and area of life. When transiting planets touch the "finger", the entire triangle comes alive, vibrating with energy focusing attention to the symbolism of that planet(s). The upcoming Full Taurus Moon forms a Yod with iconoclast Uranus while both Uranus and the Moon TXT message Venus, now moving forward. Venus receives the Moon and Uranus like a bolt of lightening, emotionally charged, intuitive hunches, A~ha~~! Light bulb awareness.

Toliman: According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Venus and Jupiter; and, to Alvidas, of Mars with the Moon and Uranus in Scorpio. It gives beneficence, friends, refinement and a position of honor. (Robson).
Lachesis: the 2nd fate, the "measurer", evaluator, fated experiences, sequence must run its course, interruptions altering plans, someone didn't do something to intervene, one must do something and not wait any longer, according to Martha Lang-Westcott.
Pallas Athene: Pallas Athene, Minerva (Roman), the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, sprang from Zeus’s (Jupiter) head fully formed and cloaked in armor. She symbolizes a woman with the intellect of a man. Because she was borne of man and not woman she is symbolic of a “Uranian” type of matriarchal energy.
