2. From Greek, literally "out angle"; "the intersection of the two line tangents drawn from the 0° and the 60° points describes an obtuse - or an open angle. This suggests that the sextile, while involving the native, directs the aspect’s energy outward and in an open manner away from the native."

3. Sextile

inconjunct (noun)

1. In astrology, an aspect of 30 degrees or 150 degrees; the 30 degree configuration is also known as semi-sextile; the 150 degree configuration is also known as quincunx.

2. Inconjunct planets have nothing in common with each other. For this reason they are said to be in aversion or turned away from each other. It is as if they do not see (aspect) one another.

3. Planets in a traditional aspect or configuration with both planets in the inconjunct act as mediating planets, transmitting information from one planet in the inconjunct to the other. For this reason, the third-party planet becomes indelibly identified with the inconjunct configuration.

Example Sentence:

My Sun and Moon in my horoscope are in an inconjunct or quincunx configuration.
