I will be giving a lecture on the Yod aspect pattern.


Breaking Down the Borders 5 – November 6-8, 2020

Join me on November 7, 2020 at 12:00-1:30 pm US Eastern Time or 19:00-20:30 Athens Local Time to learn more about how the Yod pattern can reveal your unique talents and skills in the birth chart. You can reserve your seat and register at https://astrologyconference.org/blog/events/eleni-kostika-how-can-i-best-understand-and-use-my-skills-the-quincunx-and-the-yod/

The Yod is an aspect pattern that has been widely discussed as a challenging pattern, emotionally and psychologically, presenting problems that are difficult to solve. The two quincunxes involved in a Yod pattern, depending on the planets involved, are either waxing or waning, and are very different in nature: Virgo or Scorpio archetypes.

As an astrologer being interested in giving practical advice to my clients, I will examine how Yod Bearers are in constant need of something that probes the mind, or in search of an application of a skill. They may possess a special skill in solving problems, or have a capacity to “see” things that others don’t. Once they become conscious of that and apply it in a particular realm of life, it may serve as a very rewarding release of the inherent tension of the pattern. Mercury, Mars (and Pluto) would be planets to examine as hidden players, even if they do not feature in the pattern.

Here’s a link to an interview I did with Alexis Duong in preparation of this conference: https://vimeo.com/424802440

Wednesday, 19, 2020:

Arrest decay and restore vigor, vitality and passion. Avoid drama, conflict and narcissist behaviour. There is charisma and talent you possess as your authentic self becomes alive, that is worth being noticed for and others join to praise or assist you. What is it that you are passionate about, who and what do you love? Fight for who you are if necessary. Be creative and spread your love.. your heroic self becomes alive, meet others with a spirit of enthusiasm and stimulate your heart-felt communication. Barriers, rules and limitations may exist, yet they do not need to reside in your heart and mind, they can actually strengthen your actions, confidence, and self-will. It is important to know what you want. Time to show off your creativity and passion, what you are proud of, and perhaps give new life and purpose to something that needs to be completed, has been delayed, needs to be rejuvenated or belongs to the past.  ❤

Jupiter conjunct Pluto

June 30, 2020, Jupiter conjunct Pluto both Rx at 24 Capricorn

Spiritual power – Material wealth – Plutocracy – Revelations and hidden truths that will shift our collective ideals. There is so much more than you perceive! Magnify your inner strength, deepen consciousness, transform your viewpoint instead of obsessing about it, become a spiritual force for others, discover your empowering self and deepest passion, also come to terms with your shadow self, it is part of who you are, empower your spiritual awareness, understand your deepest fears -where is the wealth and where do we see it? In Capricorn it is all about realism, wisdom, abiding to rules and regulations, critical attitude, authority, self-mastery, being respectful, responsible, productive and committed. Which is the right thing for you, in relation to the right thing for others, may be part of your internal dialogue right now. This is the second conjunction in the year between the two planets. It is a moment of great spiritual power, lets use it accordingly. This is a seed moment that will define the next 12-13 years of how we appreciate power, ambition, spiritual and material wealth personally and collectively. What do you really wish for in the depth of your soul? This is a moment of a beginning of a transformation of how we view the world and gaining depth of experience. Check the house this is occurring in your natal chart, this is where it all starts from. Check the natal placement of Jupiter and Pluto in your chart, this is the origin of things on your personal journey of experiencing expansion, growth and transformation on a deep soul level. Where were you in 2007 and where you are now? Think back on what occurred in 4-5 April 2020, this is the second phase in the workings of the two mythological brothers as they meet (the Olympian God of the Sky and thunder, and the God of the Underworld), the last one being in November 12, 2020. There is an ongoing process of an end and a new beginning.

Mercury in the heart of the Sun

Mercury in the heart of the Sun (just for today):

Speak from your heart about all Venusian things. Be it real or not it will  be communicated, and it has power and your very own value. As you think, you feel, as you feel, you speak, you write and compose and so on. Does not have to be conclusive. Venus in Gemini is squaring Neptune. The Moon is in Libra. It is all a synthesising process and it can be engaging, enchanting, sensual, romantic or just a trip in wonderland. All about relationships, art, love and money.

Mercury conjunct Chiron



Mercury conjunct Chiron at 06 Aries:

Words and thoughts can either wound or heal. Learning and healing. Speaking about our vulnerabilities we help others. Wisdom and special gifts through writing. These are expressed with courage, boldness and creative spirit.

Σύνοδος Ερμή-Χείρωνα στις 06 μοίρες Κριού:
Ο λόγος και οι σκέψεις μπορεί να πληγώσουν ή να θεραπεύσουν. Μάθηση και θεραπεία. Μιλώντας για τις αδυναμίες μας βοηθάμε άλλους. Σοφία και ταλέντα μέσω του προφορικού και του γραπτού λόγου. Εκφράζονται με κουράγιο, τόλμη και δημιουργικό πνεύμα.

Επηρεάζει όσους έχουν πλανήτες ή σημεία στις 05-06 μοίρες των παρορμητικών ζωδίων.
It affects those who have planets or points at 05-06 degrees of cardinal signs.
