the Bowen Triangle, the two parents (Planets A & B on the far
left side) are all happy and cozy in their comfortable sextile (the
blue line). Mom and Dad have temporarily agreed to be in agreement
(the green lines) against their sensitive, more vulnerable child (Planet
C on the far right side). Over time they will manage to convince him/her
(Planet C) that he/she is crazy. And poor little Planet C never, ever

that's why the quincunx is sometimes called the neurotic aspect and
the Yod is sometimes called the Neurotic planetary configuration.
Moral of the Story
The moral of the story is that - when looked at in this light - you
should probably (grudgingly) be grateful for your birth chart Yods,
Kites, and even those accursed T-Squares.
already discussed, in a Closed planetary configuration such as the
Grand Square, spreading tension serves to stabilize the planetary
system, but nothing is likely to get resolved.
the other hand, Open planetary configurations such as the Yod are
the parts of your chart that have the potential become conscious enough
to recognize that there's a problem. Then, while there are no guarantees,
they contain the germinal propensities to recognize a need for outside
intervention and (most importantly) change and breaking free of our
repetitive unhealthy behavior patterns.
