Quintile & Septiles

Aspects refer to the angles formed by planets in relation to Earth’s center, measured along the ecliptic, which is the Sun’s path through the zodiac. For instance, an ‘opposition’ aspect signifies an angle of 180 degrees, whereas a ‘square’ aspect denotes 90 degrees.

The late John Addey posited that two prime-number aspects, commonly overlooked by astrologers, are particularly linked to the concept of ‘creativity’. These are the Quintile and Septile aspects, associated with the numbers 5 and 7, respectively. The Quintile was introduced (or uncovered) by Kepler, and the Septile has been utilized more recently in modern times.

John Addey suggested that the orbs for minor astrological aspects should be calculated using the formula 12/n°, where ‘n’ represents the harmonic number. For Quintiles, which have a harmonic number of 5, this results in an orb of ±2°20′. Similarly, Septiles are assigned a 12/7 orb, equating to ±1°43′. Statistically, one would anticipate slightly more than two Quintiles and two Septiles in each astrological chart.

Note: Quintile interpretations are particularly relevant to the Quintile (72°) and BiQuintile (144°), as well as the less potent Decile (36°) and TriDecile (108°). When assessing the significance of the Vigintile (18°), TriVigintile (54°), SeptVigintile (126°), and NovVigintile (162°), one should consider them alongside a subdued version of the Square’s interpretation. Similarly, when evaluating the meaning of the QuintiTrine (24°), BiquintiTrine (48°), QuadquintiTrine (96°), and SeptquintiTrine (168°), they should be considered with a muted interpretation of the Trine.

The interpretations of Septiles are particularly relevant to the Septile (51.4°), BiSeptile (102.9°), and TriSeptile (154.3°). They are also pertinent to the less pronounced SemiSeptile (25.7°) and TrisemiSeptile (128.6°).

The interpretations of Novile are particularly relevant to the Novile (40°), BiNovile (80°), and QuadriNovile (160°) aspects.

Interpretations of SemiSquares, particularly at 45° and SesquiSquares at 135°, are significant. They extend to the milder SquiSquares (22.5°), TrisquiSquares (67.5°), QuinsquiSquares (112.5°), and Septsquisquares (157.5°). Notably, SemiSquares are quite similar to the weaker Squares, as both are derived from the same prime number circle division combination (multiples of ‘2’). Therefore, the interpretations of Square aspects should also be considered for the planets involved in these cases.
