A quincunx is an aspect of 150 degrees, with an orb of 2 to 2.5 degrees. It represents adjustment, with elements of “expansion through sacrifice” accompanying those adjustments. We have a bunch of them coming soon!
Because two planets in quincunx have one of four qualities (forming waxing, separating waxing, forming waning, separating waning) the quincunx could have several ways it takes shape, since the first (forming waxing) is essentially a “fifth house” relationship to the planet being quincunxed, and the second (separating waxing) a “sixth house” relationship to the planet being quincunxed. The third and fourth possible quincunxes represent a 7th or 8th house relationship to the planet being quincunxed.
So a quincunx is a creative-expressive adjustment when it is forming waxing, a functional adjustment in the “health” of the two planets in quincunx when separating waxing, a relational adjustment when forming and waning, and a loss/regenerative adjustment when separating and waning. That’s why quincunxes are often associated with health issues and/or loss of some kind.
Here we must regard “health” as having a physical component, an emotional component, and a mental component. With a quincunx, one or more of these must be adjusted in some way, and perhaps a sacrifice of some sort is required, at that phase in “the whole cycle.”
And now for what’s happening! Today we have Moon in late Leo quincunx Neptune at 24 Pisces followed by a quincunx to Pluto at 26 Capricorn. This creates a special evolutionary configuration known as the Yod, or “Finger of God,” with the Leo planets acting as the nozzle for the “expansion through sacrifice” quality of the Yod.
This Lunar Leo Yod heralds the coming Venus Yod which activates on July 15 just after Chiron goes stationary retrograde and the Sun trines Neptune. This is immediately followed by the Sun opposed Pluto on July 17 and Venus quincunx Pluto on the 18th, followed by Mars quincunx Neptune on the 18th. Mars then continues to make a quincunx to Pluto through July 22, followed by the Sun entering Leo and quincunxing Jupiter!
Each of these has its own unique quality, since the waxing quincunx from Leo to Pisces is fundamentally different than the waning quincunx from Leo to Capricorn. Still, since the Yod has a quality of “expansion through sacrifice,” with the sextile showing the productivity available via the two adjustments shown by the quincunxes, whatever is adjusted or squeezed out of our Leo, Capricorn, and Pisces sectors these next few weeks shows us the way to a clearer spiritual focus.
Anyway, if you have to make adjustments or sacrifices this next week, remember you’re cooperating with your spiritual evolution, shedding some things to make space for better things to come down the road.
