The Grand Quintile is a rare aspect that always presages powerfully significant changes in the human condition. This unusual aspect, first delineated by Johannes Kepler, is a division of the 360 degree circumference of the zodiac by 5, producing a five-pointed star (or pentagram—the mark of Venus). Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992) is an American actress and singer. She is a daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, and held minor roles in the television series Doc and the film Big Fish in her childhood. Quintile - 5th harmonic aspect Quintile - 5th harmonic aspect - astrological aspect Astrology aspects - Quintile - 5th harmonic aspect Sun quintile Moon: Living one's life in an orderly, patterned way; preoccupied with style, and with self-image; seemingly stylized and artificial behaviour; a creature of habit. Sun quintitrine Mercury (Sun and Mercury are never far enough apart for a quintile.

The quintile aspect is one-fifth of the zodiac, or 72 degrees. All that I’m going to tell you about it can also be applied to the bi-quintile, which is 144 degrees.

Marc Jones gave the keyword “talent” to this aspect. I would add to this an innate talent, that tends to manifest spontaneously and with a lot of raw vitality behind it. The five pointed star is the symbol of magic, and the 5-based quintile carries the energy of magic. The negative side of it is that it can be like the sorcerer’s apprentice. Remember the Disney film where the sorcerer leaves the laboratory and Mickey Mouse starts messing with the magic formula, creating out of a broom a being which can tote water from the well. Well, the broom shatters into many pieces and each piece generates another being which carries water and the laboratory floods. The sorcerer finally returns and cleans up Mickey’s mess.

Quintile Astrology

The significance of this is that the energy of the quintile needs to be controlled and directed so that it doesn’t turn destructive.

I have a quintile between Mercury and Mars, which I love. Repartee is easy for me, as is arguing and using words to excite and compel. Negatively, if I get into saying (Mercury) destructive things (Mars), I can create a lot of bad karma very fast. When my mind gets going it can rev up with Martian passion, and I’ve had to work assiduously to learn how to keep it from spinning out of control.

Of course what I’ve said about the quintile per se has a feeling of Mars, in terms of its aliveness and vitality, and for this reason I think my Mercury/Mars quintile is rather easy to interpret, as are maybe all quintiles involving Mars. Jupiter quintiles also seem easy to interpret because of the enthusiastic quality of them – Jupiter being inately enthusiastic.


So let’s take an example which I feel is maybe less obvious: Sun quintile Saturn. Here the talent is for patience and control (Saturn) in focusing on a goal. Also a talent for bringing to light (Sun) the limitations at work in any situation. If this goes out of control a la quintile, it might manifest as being way too serious and obsessed with reaching a goal, or a rigidity (Saturn) of one’s ego (Sun). As Saturn signifies slowness, it could mean someone who can’t easily reach goals because of being so careful (Saturn) of everything connected with reaching the goal (Sun).

Or how about Saturn/Neptune quintile. This could mean a talent for practically and tangibly (Saturn) manifesting the visions of one’s imagination. As Saturn can mean negativity, Saturn/Neptune could also mean a talent for negative imaginings. We tend to always think that talent is a good thing, but any talent can be misused.

Moon/Saturn quintile could mean a talent for plumbing the depths (Saturn) of emotions (Moon), and/or for taking seriously (Saturn) the feelings of others.

What about quintile in forecasting work? Well, first of all we always have to keep in mind that the slower moving a planet the stronger the effect. So transiting quintiles coming from, say Uranus will be much stronger than one from transiting Mars. I think the most effective use of quintiles in forecasting is to look at them in the progressed chart, especially the day-for-a-year progressions. In looking at these we might take into account all progressed planets except for the progressed Moon, once again because its just going to produce too many aspects too frequently. Unlock astrology. But the other progressed planets forming quintiles will be felt – because they are INFREQUENT, that being the key thing in any transit or cycle that creates power. The Moon crosses your Venus every 28 days, but if Pluto ever does it, it will be ONCE IN A LIFETIME , and believe me YOU WILL FEEL IT.

The progressed quintile means that the natal planet’s energy is COMING TO LIFE in a manner signified by the progressed planet. Let’s say a progressed Venus is quintiling natal Mars. Here can arise a desire to act and assert oneself, and the emergence of the ability to do this in an alluring (Venus) manner, or a way that is easier (Venus) or more artful (Venus) than it has ever been before.

Quintile Astrology

The quintile’s relationship to magic is that if you adopt a positive and confident attitude, miracles can happen, and the quintile is tending very strongly toward positivity and confidence. The successful performance of magic depends on intent, and the quintile spontaneously manifests a very pure creative intent, if the energy is not repressed.

The last thing I want to say right now about quintiles is that any attempt to repress their energy will lead to that energy coming out in some other way that is usually twisted or destructive. So if the energy is let out, and disburdened of dysfunctional obsessiveness, it can create a lot of beauty and upliftment in the world.

Dividing the circle by 72° angles we obtain a perfect Pentagon, five sided geometrical figure. This is an ancient symbol of wholeness, including the number of the ElementsFire, Air, Earth and Water and an extra unit for the subtle Element Aether (Vedic Akasha).

The ~ is the creative aspect, equal to 72 °.
Classical astrology is a traditional European astrology, based on the works of Ptolemy, Firm Materna, Morena.


Q The ~
Although referred to in older textbooks as a 'minor' aspect, the division of the 360° of the circle by five = 72°, the ~ aspect, and its multiple of 144°, the bi-~, is of primary importance. Five is the number of consciousness and choice.

~: an aspect of 72° or 1/5th of the circle, denoting the bringing together of the male and female within an individual, thus indicating marriage, creativity, and one's art; 2° orb.
Radix (Radical): a natal planetary position or chart.

Jupiter Bi~ Asc.:
Your best creative and expansive activities include physical activity. Even when your projects are largely mental or emotional, you benefit from a physical component, such as walking, yoga, or regular sports activity.

These include the ~ (Q - consisting of 72°), the Tredecile (Td -consisting of 108°), the Bi~ (Bq - consisting of 144°), the semi-square ( - consisting of 45°) and the Sesquiquadrate ( - consisting of 135°).

It is said that ~ Dominant personalities have a strong sense of mission but they must first define what they want in order to get it!

The imaginative and poetic contribution of Neptune is further developed by its ~ aspect with the Sun (72°); the ~ is held to indicate a creative combination of the planets involved, so that the imaginative force of Neptune is expressed with the Sun's personal force.

The 5th part of the circle (~): 72°, 144°.
This is an aspect with some age and tradition behind it, having been used for quite a while. It is generally associated with natural 'talent,' though of what kind is not always made clear.

Grand ~ : A very rare pattern of 5 or more planets separted by 72 degree aspects (~s) that lie in a 5 pointed star design. Rather quirky and creative energies that defy classification in good/bad terms. Can feel like a 'higher intelligence' is taking over which we need to attune to.

We would find the birth chart and the sunset chart relating to each other by an aspect called a ~. This relationship between the two charts might explain a level of inventiveness that might otherwise not be indicated elsewhere.

The situation generally has been that some astrologers take notice of ~s, while others look at septiles and so on. This is possibly due to the fact that many astrologers have difficulty even finding quincunxes or sesquisquares in an astrological chart, let alone ~s or septiles.

QUINITLE - - Keywords: Talent, special privileges. The ~ is a highly spiritual aspect that is relatively rare. An individual having several in the natal chart will be an advanced soul or adept. The ~ planets are 72 degrees apart, with an orb of 2 degrees.

Some of the other aspects used by astrologers are: the ~, which divides the wheel by 5 and therefore contains 72°; the semi-square of 45° or a division by 8; the quincunx, or inconjunct, which is 150° and midway between the trine and opposition. These are all so-called minor, or less commonly used, aspects.

The Ptolemaic aspects are usually contrasted with what are referred to as the non-Ptolemaic aspects, which are any aspects besides those employed by Ptolemy. This would include the aspects introduced by Johannes Kepler in the 17th century, such as the semi-sextile, semi-square, ~, bi~ and sesquidrate, ..

There are two major aspects to watch out for this June 2018, the first of which will be already making itself felt for some of us. A ~ between Uranus and Pluto has the effect of strengthening the influence of these two planets and will aid the process of transformation in our lives.

Harmonics The astrological study of integral division of the circle. For example:, by 2, 3, 4, 5 and etc. The aspect ~ is considered the 5th harmonic.
Harmonious Aspects Conjunct, Sextile and Trine. Also referred to as the Soft aspects or Easy aspects.

decile A mildly benefic aspect with a separation of 36°, also called a semi-~; the tenth harmonic.

SQUARES are fourth harmonic aspects and their influences are Fourth Ray;
~S are fifth harmonic aspects and their influences are Fifth Ray;
SEXTILES are sixth harmonic aspects and their influences are Sixth Ray;
SEPTILES are seventh harmonic aspects and their influences are Seventh Ray.

Personally, I was quite surprised to find out that Kepler added the ~ and decile as aspects and also devised secondary progressions.[9] Kepler loved astrology but despised those who were incompetent or used it for selfish or foolish purposes and thus advocated the rejection of medieval and Hellenistic methods.

to use tight or narrow orbs (e.g., within 2-5 degrees) and others prefer to use wide orbs (e.g., within 6-9 degrees). The number of degrees of orb used also tends to vary with the aspect in question; for example, a wider orb is usually used for a major aspect (e.g., Conjunction) than for a minor aspect (e.g., ~).
