Biquintile

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A biquintile is a minor aspect of 144°, created by subdividing a circle (360°) into five parts. As the name indicates, a biquintile is equivalent to two quintiles (72° aspects). The great astronomer Johannes Kepler devised quintiles and biquintiles for his astrological work. Under-researched, a biquintile’s influence is sometimes said to be similar to that of a quintile, and it is given an orb of influence of 1° to 2°.
