Yods and unaspected planets in synastry, with Karen Hamaker-Zondag - MP4 Video/Audio Recording
Yods and unaspected planets in the birth chart are very dynamic and it takes time to understand their hidden gifts, as they often bring doubt and confusion first. Their role in synastry is important, as they can produce smokescreens and fascination at the very same time. If you have had important synastry aspects to yods or unaspected planets when young (for example with parents or brothers and sisters), these can still influence your relationships when adult. We will analyze their dynamics both in the birth chart and in synastry, and try to understand their meaning in relationships, whether it be love relationships or parent-child.
