However, unlike with a grand cross the conflict is much less apparent because the two planets in sextile cannot understand the third and it serves to create a situation which can be analogised to a coma. It is felt that the individual cannot see the conflicts involved and thus is not likely to be able to deal with them as productively as with a grand cross.
A hypothetical example of a yod would be with Jupiter at 11° Pisces quincunxing Mars at 11° Leo and the Sun at 11° Libra. The conflict arises between the worldly, sociable character of Leo and Libra which tend to seek inspiration in the world, versus the introverted, unworldly character of Pisces which is too sensitive to be able to cope with worldly life and aims to work in the background serving others. These energies do not interact and hence this hypothetical native would possess great difficulty making the choice between serving others and seeking inspiration on the social stage.
Related to the Yod, though much less inharmonious and more rarely noticed, is the golden yod. A golden yod occurs when one planets forms biquintiles (144° aspect) to two others separated by a quintile (72° aspect). Because these aspects are seen as benefic, the golden yod is seen as benefic and often as reflecting characteristics acquired by the person whose chart contains it.
An example of a golden yod would be with Mars at 18° Cancer, the Moon at 6° Taurus and Jupiter at 12° Sagittarius.
一個相比起來合調，但比較少人知道的是golden yod。這由一個星體分別144度於另外兩個成72度的星體。由於這些相位是有益的，有golden yod的人是比較受益而且能反映出盤主養成的性格/特性(??)
