The Quincunx and the Yod
Quincunxes are a silent aspect, often manifesting as tension or discomfort, a misfit energy that is not easily integrated. This can also lead to a particular one-sidedness, the overdevelopment of certain tendencies in the psyche. More than any other aspect, it seems to require a change in the level an energy is deployed.
When two quincunxes come together in a yod, the energy released is multiplied exponentially and true change becomes possible. Whether there is a quincunx or yod in your chart or one is formed by transit, is can be useful to ask "How are you being asked to move and change?"
