The quintile and the biquintile are “minor aspects”, and are 72 and 144 degrees respectively. These aspects are arrived at by dividing the circle into 5, and are best understood by looking to the symbology behind the number five.
Quintiles and bi-quintiles point to talent, the desire to create order and to categorize, a fascination with patterns and structures, perfectionist tendencies, and the desire to build or make things. These aspects in the fifth harmonic have the characteristics of both the trine and opposition. They point to awareness of conflicts or problems and finding solutions for them.
The following are descriptions of these Quintile or Bi-Quintile aspects between the planets Sun through Pluto. These aspects can also apply for the semi-quintile, or decile, of 36 degrees, or the vigintile of 18 degrees, and will only apply for Sun-Mercury and Sun-Venus aspects because of the proximity of the Sun to Mercury and Venus.
