MINOR ASPECTS - THE QUINTILE

The Quintile is considered a minor aspect in Astrology. When two planets or significant points are in Quintile with one another, the angle is 72 degrees and 144 degrees for the Bi-Quintile. We will be discussing only the Quintile in this post. This aspect has a very tight orb of influence and you should give it no more than one degree of separation (71-73 degrees).


The Quintile is an aspect linked to inspiration, talent on a very individual level and creativity. This talent is considered to be God-given and is not necessarily a learned art. It is often unique to the individual and the creative style is distinctive and sets the individual’s talent apart from the rest. It is said that the Quintile’s energies are very common with the energies of Mercury and is linked with the mind and the thought process. There is uniqueness in the work of these individuals and they often pursue their distinctive style relentlessly. It is as if they are obsessive in their behaviour and there is a need to master their particular art or technique.


The talent is uncommon and in most cases it is not something that can be learned from sources outside of self. Perhaps they are being guided through spirit. Many of us have a Quintile or two in our charts. This is common, but to have more than two and to have them tightly configured is not common. You have to have at least three Quintiles in your chart to experience this influence we are speaking of. If the progressed chart has many of these Quintiles and Bi-Quintiles, it could be a talent that is being brought to the surface, although it should be in the birth chart first, as this is a blueprint for the life of the individual.


Those that have this God-given creative talent may use their inborn knowledge or talent to assist others. The expression of the Quintile would be indicative of the energies of the planets involved, the signs and houses that these planets are located in. You can also look to the natal chart and others linking aspects that might add to the flavour of these unique aspects. Any planet that forms a tight aspect to one of the planets or points in this configuration would also add to the flavour and offer some insight into the possible ramifications and outlet for such talents to be released.


The need for these people to understand these inborn traits is great and as indicated earlier there is an obsessive quality linked to uncovering their full potential. This intense search can become a life-long passion and they will not stop short of complete understanding and utilizing the talent in question. They have an obsessive need to learn their talent completely, to look at it from every angles. This learning or search can actually intensify as time passes.


As a parent, if you child has this emphasis in their chart, it is important to understand the area of life that is accentuated. It is suggested that you do your best to help your child uncover these abilities and never dismiss these talents or sway your child away from learning their full potential in these areas as indicated by their chart. These are unique individuals and have something important to offer the world. They should be allowed to express themselves in whatever unique fashion that suits them best.
