As with the inconjuncts, Yods contain energy that needs Spiritual connection to master.  The following definitions/explanations are from my teacher, Jeffrey Wolf Green:

The meaning, definition of, the inconjunct is to realign your sense of personal identity or ego with a higher will called God, and until you do so you have a crisis equaling the inability to manifest what you sense is a possibility or purpose for your life. 

The nature of an inconjunct is to teach humility at an egocentric level. The way it teaches the humility is to experience a sense of powerlessness or a core sense of inferiority in which you don’t feel you’re quite ready or good enough to do what your higher mind is suggesting what you can do, and until the conscious linkage is made with a higher power – we can call that God – you are blocked. 

The Virgo inconjunct (150 degrees) creates a feeling of inferiority. It can equal the archetype of masochism, leading to the sacrificing of one’s own ego to a larger whole. A larger whole can even mean a person’s needs. 

The Scorpio inconjunct (210 degrees) – you’ve already had the sense of inner power. You already know you can do it, but where the adjustment occurs, where the humility occurs, is that social circumstances will conspire in such a way as to block you until you make this linkage, until you learn to listen to that social sphere in such a way as how to integrate it on THEIR terms, not yours. 

The Yod has both aspects, so you’re just magnifying the archetype. That’s why in old-time astrology it was called the Finger of God.  It is essentially an archetype of purification relative to two dynamics within the Soul, one of which is egocentric identification with power--ego power--versus the power of God manifesting thru the ego. The other is purification of an ego that does not feel itself ready to do what the Soul, via the inner direction of God, is asking it to do.

Mind Tools and Vampire Thoughts

As the energies build, it's helpful to have some spiritual focus to get your balance back. What can be easily triggered at this time are something I call Vampire Thoughts.  If anyone has read Salem's Lot by Stephen King, these thoughts work the same way as those vampires -- and can be just as scary and overpowering.  Give the thought any attention (make eye contact) and it has you.  You'll believe it - it will become real for you.  
During times of mental change and acceleration (now), it's important not to engage in old habitual thinking patterns.  Vampire Thoughts are harder because they activate the ego/emotional pain body, increasing the possibility of repeating the past and/or reacting instead of responding. 
Mind Tools give you the ability to work with thoughts and situations that can be difficult or have no immediate resolution.  These, from A Course in Miracles, are my anchor.  Read them carefully for understanding.  Used consciously, they are very effective.  The first is used at any sign of fear.  The second, when working with something you don't know how to.  The third is amazing for situations that are fearful or disturbing and seem to have no resolution.
Once you are aware of an influence, whether an internal thought or an outer event that's triggered something, use one (or all) of these.  Consciously allowing the energy/sensation of the emotion to simply be there, without interpretation or resistance, is a necessary part of using the Mind Tool.  
The ego will tell you how important it is to engage in and think about what's bubbling up or occurring.  This is how you decipher where the thoughts are coming from.  Thoughts from the ego will be painful, triggering fear, discomfort, anger, resentment, etc.  Thoughts from whatever God is - through our higher Mind, will come with a sense of peace and well-being.  Using these Mind Tools will bring you back to peace -- ever so gently. 
I am willing to release the fear.  Please correct my perception.
I do not know what anything means, including this.  Therefore, I don’t know how to respond.  And I will not use my own past learning as the light to guide me now.  Everything I know I do not want.  I ask to be taught.
Take this from me and look upon it, judging it for me.  Let me not see it as a sign of sin and death or use it as an obstacle to peace, but let You use it for me to facilitate its coming.
After using, consciously change your focus to what's there for you to do in the moment. You've given it over and thinking about it further will block the requested assistance.  This part is not always effortless, but be persistent until you refocus.
