The Yods of Pamela Hills
Pamela Hills, not her real name, asked for her chart to be done. She had a birth time but doubted that it was accurate, we were able to rectify by an hour late but we all happily settled on Gemini 23. Pamela married late in life, having fallen victim to the current idea of overpopulation in the world and believed in “zero population” growth. She has Saturn in her Ninth House, which is striking, is that is how she did meet her husband, through her various bush-walks in the Australian countryside. True to form, he is about 9 years older (or a third of a Saturn cycle). That she would have affinity with an older and more established man plays into her first god’s composition, a need for personal security and assurance.
The first Yod in Pamela’s chart with Neptune in the Fifth and Uranus in the Third sextiled inconjunct Venus in Aries in the Tenth and the opposing head in Fourth. She did have a very successful career as a nurse until she suffered an at-work accident, that was because of hospital negligence and then was relocated to an Administrative job but not until family members urged her to go forward and register a complaint.
This Yod says as much about the negligence of the hospital as it does about her maternal care, which was also non-existent and would play heavily into her feeling of inadequacy and self-blame over the accident as the Moon, mother of us all, rules the Fourth House. That her family had to encourage Pamela’s complaint says that without outside support, she did not feel worthy to voice her troubles and needed moral and physical support.
It is the second Yod that deals with her question: what would be a good hobby? That’s always a good question, so we noticed that the second YOD starts at Jupiter in the First House to the Moon in the Tenth with its foot in Scorpio but its head somewhere around 16 Taurus right near her Mercury. That was striking because it is unfortunate the readers cannot hear Pamela’s beautiful melodic voice, and her laugh is entrancing – it is her most femininely beguiling trait, but alas she has no interest in singing or music though it seems she does come from a musical family.
Still, this second Yod gives her a strong creative spark that also includes good child bearing proclivity, but that she intellectually cut off (the Mercury apex). While she is aunty is many children, she has no interest in making knitting, crocheting or beading anything for them. Next, while the other things that comes to mind is photography and natural writing pairing the two into a photo travelogue. She liked that idea a lot and seems she has reams of photographs of her natural bush walking through four continents, many countries and lots of islands including Fiji where our header shot originates but her favorite places are the North Island of New Zealand and her native Oz.
We wish her the best. Her chart is not available for downloading. The header image is from the Sydney Botanical Gardens, Sydney Australia.
