To regenerate your viewpoint so that you can appreciate and interpret your experience more truthfully would correspond to the action of thoroughly washing the windows of your house so that you call see your exterior environment without impediment or obstruction. By a comprehension of the meanings of your planetary aspects you can intelligently use your timings for alchemical exercise and regenerative endeavors.
There are periodic timings throughout your life when each planetary aspect is emphasized by the various types of stimulus and ignition in order that you may have the opportunities to "wash the windows of your soul. The semi-sextile aspect is exactly what the term implies: half a sextile.
Its symbol is the horizontal and the two upper diagonals of the sextile aspect, like a "V" standing on a horizontal line. Because everything in life starts from a process of germination, all aspect- patterns start from the vibratory fusion we call the conjunction; from this vibratory unification or " joining of forces," the planets register the various aspect-patterns from life to life in accordance with the way you use your consciousness and mind. The semi-sextile is the promise of the sextile, which in turn is the mechanism for the generation of the trine: it is like the delicate green leaf which is externalized on the tree-branch at spring-time, the promise of blossom and fruit to come.
Inconjunct or quincunx in synastry
The registration of a semi-sextile in your chart is the indication that you have already started, in the past a regenerative program concerning your consciousness of the planetary principles involved. Know that it is up to you to handle that "delicate green leaf" with care, to cultivate its qualities with thoughtfulness and patience, to make yourself constantly more and more aware of its evidences in your life.
Give meditative spiritual consideration to the principles represented by the planets concerned and the signs they rule; having already made the regenerative start, you will naturally want to persevere in apprehending the spiritual values indicated as potential by this aspect. Remember that the semi-sextile, in comparison with the other aspects, is like a young child in relation to older boys and girls, adolescents, young men and women, parents, and elders.
It is " impressionable" just as a child is, it can be easily marred if it is not tended and cared for with understanding and consideration. With spiritual diligence and unwavering patience, it is possible that in the course of one life-time the person who "tends his semi-sextile" can unfold a degree of spiritual understanding or awareness that would correspond to a sextile aspect between the two planets.
Aspects in Astrology: The Inconjunct or Quincunx
In other words, his next-life horoscope would register the sextile aspect. This is comparable to seeing the first evidence of the blossom during the course of a day-the unmistakable evidence that the blossom has appeared when this morning there was only the leaf. You first become aware of your divine self in a new phase of evolution through your semi-sextile--the childhood of your "Christ Within" being externalized through your consciousness. We owe to our semi-sextiles the same kind of consideration that we tend to give to anything that is young, delicate and impressionable; its growth must be carefully fostered and nurtured, perhaps over a long period of time, through many stages of development.
But the goal is the ultimate fruition which we identify astrologically as the trine aspect--the "viewpoint" by which Power, Love, and Truth are apprehended in terms of internal equilibrium, beauty, capacity, affluence, and joy. The exact semi-sextile aspect is thirty degrees; by orb, twenty-seven to thirty-three degrees.
It is interesting to note that the cusps of the twelve houses are in sequences of thirty degrees as are the first degrees of each of the zodiacal signs. The semi-square aspect exact, forty-five degrees; by orb, forty-two to forty-eight degrees requires a little geocentric consideration. As seen from the Earth, the semi-square is the largest of the valid aspects which can be made between Venus and Sun.
The Sun, Moon, and all other planets can form the semi-square to each other. The sextile is the largest geocentric aspect possible between Mercury and Venus. The semi- square--half of a square --is a warning; like the semi-sextile it is a "young aspect.
The semi-square in the natal horoscope is evidence that the person has begun to congest on those awarenesses of spiritual principle represented by the planets concerned. It is as though the person in the past, sought to experiment with life through ignorance of what he was really dealing with, and now the semi-square holds up a warning finger and says "Stop, Look and Listen.
The semi-square is evidence of gathering tension, the appearance on the horizon of the cloud which might bring rain and spoil your picnic plans. You can't do anything about the storm cloud, but if you don't want to risk having a disappointing experience you will postpone your picnic plans until you know for sure how the weather will be.
In other words, you won't stubbornly go ahead with plans when you have the evidence that postponement would be a more practical measure. The experience of feeling a growing progression of fear or anger is like the meaning of the semi-square; while the emotion is still intensifying it can be dealt with and controlled or transmuted, but after it reaches a certain degree of intensity, the astral potency overwhelms your mental-directive power and you plunge into an experience characterized by considerable pain and suffering.
If you have occasion to deal with a chart containing several semi-squares keep the thought of past experimentation through ignorance in mind as an interpretive key; such a registration indicates that this present life will contain, for the person, many opportunities to learn from the evidence of instinctual negative tendencies but which must be dealt with regeneratively now or suffer grave consequences in future. Of course the two planets of any semi-square aspect may be regeneratively aspected in many ways by other points in the chart, but the semi-square registers a negative tendency. Understanding of it is necessary so that the person may--in this present life--know what he is dealing with inside of himself, rather than continuing on the path of ignorance and un-awareness that may have characterized his experience in the past in certain ways.
Since you, as the astrological reader, stand as a personalized symbol to the person of awareness and knowledge, study the semi- squares by a careful correlation with all regenerative indication in the chart--from semi-sextile to trine--that are involved with the semi-square planets. Look, with the eyes of your Spirit, at that semi-square as though you were a dentist studying a small cavity as pictured in an X-ray--your job as a reader is to understand that warning as completely as possible. The quincunx exact, degrees, five signs; by orb, to degrees is a fascinating astrological factor; it is like a "coat of many colors," a kaleidoscope and a chameleon all in one.
Several pictorial symbols have been devised for it; the author suggests the following: the composite of the symbol for the semi-sextile aspect with a down-ward vertical from the center. These lines would correspond to the cusps of Aries, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Libra and Cancer of the Great Mandala and the picture it presents suggests an unfolded flower on a vertical stem.
The quincunx is the only aspect that pictures alchemy within itself because the degrees of its exact scope are primarily focalized by the ninety degrees of the square and the sixty degrees of the sextiles. It also implies the possibilities of the following aspect sequences: five semi-sextiles, semi-sextile and trine, trine and semi-sextile, sextile and square, square and sextile.
The Moon being the handle of the basket in chart pattern, it is really important. My difficulty has been in finding how to relax fully so one mechanism is reading non-fiction but it can become a bit addictive! How do you cope with this issue? By: Lynne Maddock on August 7, at pm. By: Donna Cunningham on August 8, at pm. I have one and only one in my chart that has actually played a very huge and pivotal role in my life.
Venus quincunx uranus
Neptune in Sagittarius 5th house inconjunct Saturn in Taurus 10th house. My Saturn in Taurus in the 10th has always wanted me to have a socially respectable and acceptable career. And metaphysical philosophies are my passion! And I have spent my whole life trying to figure out how to get these two titans to negotiate and cooperate. Tough stuff. I could never figure out how to make it all work together.
But like you said, Donna… a healthy sense of humor is paramount when it comes to these quincunxes! Otherwise, I think I would be completely miserable! Saturn can be a toughie, bringing out all our fears — I have saturn sitting on top of sun and venus holding back all that metaphysical 12th house aquarian wildness, frustrates the hell out of me. By: Jay Linden on April 4, at pm. I feel your frustration! Thanks for the Steven Forrest quote! That Neptune, which is strengthened as my chart ruler, is pretty interested in faraway fantasies, where my moon is not QUITE as adventurous has a boost being in the 5th though.
I just realized that this Nep-moon inconj gives me an aspect that a lot of women in my family have- Nep-moon conjunctions, opps, squares, etc. Good times : Lotta us have Nep-Venus too, double yay. I have an exact quincunx between Venus in Aries 2nd and Pluto in Virgo 7th and a slightly wider quincunx 3 degrees between Venus and Neptune Scorpio in the 8th. These 2 aspects say more about my approach to relationships than anything else in my chart. The struggle between independence mine and control I married a Scorpio and the yearning for the ideal fantasy relationship which is more in keeping with the heavy Pisces bias in my chart.
By: Jo Tracey on April 4, at pm. My ultimate hope is that the best qualities of each end up bolstering and supporting the maybe less-secure qualities of the same. Hi, Stacy, welcome to Skywriter.
pierreducalvet.ca/158628.php And she did a bang up job of loving her kids. By: Donna Cunningham on April 4, at pm. This has had health consequences and Pluto in the 6th adding to the lessons ons! Humour love the absurdities of life and my own sterling contributions! The current Neptune transit which seems endless is an Alice in Wonderland journey — boundaries nebulous and the familiar path ath ….. It just seems like Surrender and Flow are the only choice. I have Sun quincunx Moon and yeah, my parents had nothing in common really except astrologically.
Sounds right. Saturn quincunx Uranus — the frustration between being cautious and reserved and letting my wildness out — feel it most in my creative work — Uranus is in Leo — have all these wild ideas about being totally spontaneous and intuitive in my art and what happens is so very considered, disciplined, composed and worked on!
This effect is amplified by Saturn being very tightly conjunct Sun and Venus all in Aquarius 12th house — so perhaps that pulls Sun and Venus into the inconjunct also. Certainly this conundrum does seem to be rising to the surface in these blogs — ripe for the resolving maybe? I call myself a sane weirdo. I have Saturn at 29 Virgo in the 1st house quincunx Jupiter at 28 Aquarius in the 6th.
The only issue I can think of right now is that Saturn makes me appear serious and self-conscious…but I love to talk and joke and help people. I love the Shatner example, Donna. Is this our Ugly Duckling aspect we have to grow into before finding its beauty? Well, there comes a time in our lives when oppositions DO turn into trines, and so do squares, when triggered by progressions or transits. Then we get the impetus to make them work together.
