The Venus pentagram

Symbol: BQ or a07_017.gif

An aspect of 144 degrees. The biquintile is considered to be a minor aspect and usually receives little attention from astrologers, even though it counts as being favourable. It has an orb of 2 to 3 degrees.

The biquintile is seen as especially helpful in artistic matters. In this respect it resembles the quintile. Individuals with such an aspect between two planets are often only vaguely aware of it. However, if someone is sensitive enough it can aid in developing creative powers which can help to find original solutions and throw a positive light on issues that initially appear problematic.
