Quincunx or Inconjunction astrological aspect.
Keywords: Life-Long Struggles/Balancing acts, Constant Adjustment, Dissension and Interpersonal Discomposure/Ineptness.
The quincunx aspect happens at 150°, degrees and 5 signs apart. The aspect calls for continual adjustments. This is not really negative, yet it brings strain, stress, or some difficulty. It sometimes affects health and can also indicate situations forced on a person or even self-neglect on that part of life.
As Frankie Goes to Hollywood sing when two tribes go to war, no one really wins, its just destruction, so the trick with the Quincunx, is to know the energies of the chalk and cheese planets inside out.
WARTS AND ALL, this is the only way to overcome the quincunx aspect/inconjunct (s) in your Astrological Natal Chart.
The purpose of the Quincunx aspect is self-transformation on the only level it can occur, from the inside-out. It is death to an old way of being, by combining the best and balanced aspects of your old modus operandi ( mode of operation in the World) to develop a new and more enlightened way of being.
Quinqunxes can leave you hanging at the end of your wits, this is why I am a firm believer that an individual should know their natal chart from a young age, slowly being introduced to all aspects of themselves, gradually.
Similar to other hard aspects, the sooner you know about your quincunx aspect, the better for your health, especially your nervous and immune systems!
Quincunx or the In-conjunct aspect in Astrology continued
The Planetary energies involve in the quincunx aspect have different agendas and ways of fulfilling their purposes, the zodiac signs involved have nothing in common they do not share elements, modalities or traits.
Multitasking is the only way you can get these energies to work together, you have to learn to serve two masters at once, and we are told that a person with more than one master is a slave…
Well, be it so, you better learn to serve two masters, without compromising your inner dignity if you really want to overcome the downside of the quincunx aspect.
The quincunx is Astrological proof for the innate split personality, but I am kinda going off-topic here, they are parts of your personality that don’t even add up, even to your own self.
I have this aspect, so I know it can bewilder the native as well as those who have to put up with the sporadic temperament, the quincunx can give an individual.
I had times in my youth when my own behaviour literally astounded me, my mouth would say things, my mind was actively saying it not to say.
Action, Self Discipline and Control is the only way to manage the Quincunx/ Inconjunction astrological aspect
In-action will make you feel powerless, and running away from the responsibility of self-management will only leave you down the valleys of addiction and self-destruction, accept the quincunx can really bring out your saintly and devilish tendencies in equal measure.
Self-love and acceptance will help you manage this aspect, this aspect can make you the classic person, people love to hate, which is also another song by Erasure.
Love thyself and All Well, That Ends Well!
Train yourself to love all of yourself, even the parts you find annoying, it’s the only way I tell thee!
oh and patience, with yourself and others!!!
