A yod is formed when two planets that are sextile also form an inconjunct to another planet. These planets are in different signs and modes and are deeply significant, for they usually symbolize patterns in families that have lasted for generations. This is what Hamaker-Zondag discovered when she started to research the inconjunct aspect as it related to a yod. Also included in this book is a complete discussion of how the energies of unaspected planets, and planets in duet (that only aspect each other) are expressed in a person's birth chart. Hamaker-Zondag says that people with a yod are often insecure, or have trouble expressing themselves, and there is an emphasis on stalemates or unusual situations. She analyzes the background and places it in a broader perspective, including how she works with elements, modes, orbs, and other astrological factors when interpreting this aspect. All in all, this is one of the most exciting books on aspect interpretation published in recent years! Included are great case histories: you have a chance to examine the Monica Lewinsky, Linda Tripp, Kenneth Starr, Bill Clinton scenario and see it with new eyes. And Princess Diana, Prince Charles, and Prince William are not without these family patterns. The stories are profound. These aspects work in the lives of people who change the world, people who have lived the unpopular position of stalemate, delay, and social change indicated by the presence of a yod in their natal chart, by transit, or by progression. She uses the examples of Gandhi, Vaclav Havel, Khomeini, Solzhenitsyn, Willy Brandt, C. G. Jung, Jim Jones, and others. To help you work with your own clients, Hamaker-Zondag brings in the charts of her personal clients and explains them in depth. When you've read this book, you'll want to check out the charts of everyone you know!
Clarifies much of the mystery that surrounds the yod, sometimes referred to as the double quincunx. The material is presented so that the basic information can be applied to a specific case & situation. When activated, the yod symbolizes an esoteric tuning fork, vibrating like the chakras to heighten & rebalance the spiritual energy.

Some weeks are as short as 5 minutes a day for that week and the longest is 43 minutes a day. They average about 23 minutes a day. The satisfactory life is a life of continual growth. There is no such thing as standing still. One must either rise steadily, or he will gradually sink into oblivion. It matters not whether one's worldly wealth is ten dollars or ten million. The rule is the same. Every person, whether rich or poor, who has the intelligence to understand this and follow the rule of life, has need of the development offered by the Mystic Road. It frees him from the chains of misfortune and protects him from the cruel buffetings of fate. It replaces poverty of soul and purse with plenty, and renders secure the possessions of life's desires through the conscious control of the creative element. NOW YOU CAN FOCUS YOUR MIND AS A MAGNIFYING GLASS FOCUSES THE SUN . . . The greatest devil in the universe is fear, and the greatest crime is ignorance - ignorance of the marvelous power innate in every human being. Either in this or a future life you will have to undergo the triple evils of ill-luck, want and deprivation until you have learned to conquer them through your divine heritage of power: in other words, to be born again mentally through the unfoldment of your mind. The sooner you realize this truth and act upon the biblical promise, "Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you," the sooner will you enter into the promised land of good and plenty and your world will become for you what it was intended to be, a world of continuous enjoyment. By applying the sacred, oriental, occult knowledge of the workings of the mind, nerves, and nerve centers enables you by the devotion of only a few minutes a day of your spare time to develop your powers to an unbelievable degree. A few minutes a day is not study. It is the conscious unfoldment and direction of the undeveloped portions of your mind so that they work continuously for you. The real basis of the power developed is by means of two things. First, the development of the ability to use the universal life energy which is everywhere and which is closely akin to electricity. At the start you may doubt the existence of such a force, but long before you have finished the instruction all such doubt will be removed. The development of the nerve centers or plexuses, particularly the plexus of power, is the second thing. A brief preparation is necessary before you can start these developments. This preliminary instruction is covered by the first few lessons. Do not slight these initial lessons. They are an absolute necessity for what will follow and, in addition, they possess great value in themselves. In fact, if you went no further than the first few lessons the value to you would be many times the cost of the slight effort involved. After the ability to control power has been developed, there will be given to you in the final lessons the secret key which will give you the exact methods to follow in order to divert these powers to the fulfillment of your own desire.

Invariably, people who read Scripture are forced to answer the question, What is the 'literal sense'? This question is not new. In the seventeenth century, John Lightfoot--signer of the Westminster Confession of Faith and a master of Hebrew and of rabbinic writings--wrestled with the same question, and his conclusions had a profound impact in the world of hermeneutics. In an age of much animosity towards the Jews, Lightfoot embraced the insights found in the Jewish writings while staying grounded in his reformational dogmatic theology. In so doing, his exegesis could properly be considered a via media between Reformed Scholasticism and Judaism. Lightfoot's hermeneutical principles and presuppositions outlined in this book not only provide valuable insight into his thinking but also reject the previously normative notion that Reformed Scholasticism has little to offer dogmatically or exegetically. The current tensions between systematic and biblical theology, the rise of interest in Second Temple and medieval Judaica, and the never-ending question of biblical authority make What Is the Literal Sense? an important read.
This is a book of the key text of the Kabbalah, a work known as the Zohar ("Splendour"). The Zohar is a commentary on the Torah and although it is sometimes ascribed to a second-century rabbi, Simon Bar-Yochai, the form in which it is most widely known originates with Moses of Leon, a native of Granada, who died in 1305.The kabbalists believe that the undefinable origin of all things is Ein Sof - the cause of causes, the infinite, that which underlies everything. The universe emanates from the divine in successive layers called esefiroti. Everything exists in God, but God extends infinitely beyond existence. All we know and are is linked together, pervaded and maintained by the divine. According to this work, the light of God must be concealed in order to be revealed to creation. Even though the kabbalists believe that ultimately Ein Sof is beyond expression or understanding, the contemplation of God's presence in all things causes our thoughts to be purified.
