The inconjunct or quincunx (the terms are generally used interchangeably) aspect in astrology is formed between planets that are roughly 150 degrees apart. Unless it's an out-of-sign quincunx, the signs not only are of a different element, they are also of a different modality. For example, take Leo-Pisces.
Maureen, thank you for your question. Quincunxes are tricky aspects. They are technically whole aspects of the sign, but they only work as harmonic aspects.
And they are experienced very differently, depending on whether there are two personal planets, a personal planet and an outer planet, or a dynamic aspect such as a transit or a progression. Let's start with the basics. A quincunx is a 12th harmonic aspect that occurs between two planets 150 apart.
The signs involved in a quincunx have nothing in common: they have different elements, modalities, and polarities. In traditional astrology, the pairs of signs in a quincunx were said to be 'rejected' because the signs didn't 'see' each other. The quincunx - sometimes referred to as the inconjunct - was considered a non-aspect.
It meant a complete lack of communication between the two planets. The signs of a square or an opposition have a lot in common. Squares appear between planets in signs with the same modality - Cardinal, Fixed, or Variable - but different elements and different polarities.
A square always contains a masculine sign (fire or air) and a feminine sign (earth or water). Squares are a 4th harmonic aspect. They occur between planets that are three signs apart, and an exact square equals a 90-degree angle.
There is still a lot in common because the planets share the same modality, but they seem to contradict each other. Squares create tension and friction and create action. The key to squares is figuring out a way that the two planets can work together to build something.
Opposites occur between planets in signs with the same modality and polarity - between fire and air or earth and water. Opposites are a 2nd harmonious aspect. They occur between planets that are six signs apart and an exact opposition is a 180 degree angle.
The two planets deal with the same subject but approach it from opposite angles. Equilibrium is always possible with an opposition because the planets have a lot in common. However, oppositions often indicate overt aggression and conflict.
They always play in a relationship. You take the position of one planet and project your themes of the other planet onto another and experience it as if it came from outside of you. Both squares and opposites are considered to be 'main aspects'.
They are also whole aspects of the sign. This means that EVERY planet in Aries is squared EVERY planet in Cancer. And EVERY planet in Taurus faces EVERY planet in Scorpio.
Of course, the closer the angle between the planets is to the perfect aspect, the stronger the connection will be. Quincunxes are also, technically, whole character aspects, as they occur between planets that are five characters apart. However, quincunx only function as harmonic aspects.
The planets must be within a few degrees of an angle of 150 degrees to be in a quinkunx. When you have two personal planets in a quincunx with each other, those planets are forced into a relationship with one another. They have nothing in common and everyone would be much happier if they had nothing to do with the other, but the quincunx does not give them.
Since the quincunx is a sign of opposition, the planets assume that they must have a common ground and try to find a balance. But there is no common ground and no balance is possible. To express one planet, one has to suppress the other.
It takes a significant amount of energy to settle these disputes, and it can be quite frustrating. A quincunx between an outer planet (which in this context includes Saturn) and a personal planet is a different story. In these situations, you project the outer planet onto other people (or the world in general) and experience random, unexpected, and unpredictable disruptions in the affairs of the personal planet.
What makes a quincunx from an outer planet so much more difficult than a square or opposition from an outer planet is the random factor. Having an outer planetary square or opposite a personal planet presents challenges and conflicts, but you know what to expect. There is a clear cause and effect relationship.
Every time you do A, B happens. If you don't want to experience B, don't do A. With the quincunx, however, there is no clear cause and effect.
Sometimes A, B happens, but not every time. And sometimes B seems to happen out of the blue. This can create a state known in psychology as 'learned helplessness'.
You are afraid to take action because you cannot foresee the consequences. Remember how you experience your horoscope is determined by your level of consciousness, not astrology. Challenging aspects of your natal chart don't limit or keep you from being happy.
Every symbol in the horoscope has low and high consciousness expressions. Quinkunxes can also be dynamic aspects - where a transiting, advanced, or directed planet forms a quinkunx to a planet in your natal chart. Bernadette Brady says that dynamic quincunxes create endings and separation because they radically change context.
According to Brady, dynamic squares force you to change direction and take new and unfamiliar actions, while dynamic oppositions force you to make a choice or a decision about something.

Quincunxes are used in modern computer graphics as a pattern for multisample anti-aliasing. Quincunx antialiasing samples scenes at the corners and centers of each pixel. These five sample points, in the shape of a quincunx, are combined to produce each displayed pixel.Today we're going to talk about the Galton board, which was invented, or at least named after Francis Galton. What we have is a bunch of pins and a bunch of slots. Now if I turn all these balls over, 3000 of them, they fall through these pins and they get scattered randomly (in the sense that we don't know where each and every ball is going to) but because there are so many of them, it comes from that Chaos order every time in pretty much the exact same exact shape.
A normal distribution. Let's talk to the pins. The pins on my Galton board are arranged in a triangular pattern like this.
We start with a hook. Under this pin, in the second row, there are two pins on each side. The third row contains pens arranged in this way.
The fourth so and so on. Because of this arrangement of the pins, the Galton board is sometimes referred to as a 'quincunx'. A quincunx is a pattern of five objects - a specific way of arranging them - with four of the objects attached to the corners of a square and the fifth in the center.
You probably know the quincunx if you've looked at a dice before. When the balls now fall through the machine, they will first reach pin number one in the first row. And once you do that, you have a choice.
Well, they don't really have a choice but they will either go left or right and due to the way the Galton board is designed there is an approximate 50/50 chance given any ball goes left or right. Once that is done they will have reached the second row of pins where they will either go left or right, left or right. Now, since left or right ricochets are equally likely in the long run at any vertebra over a large number of attempts, we expect that balls whose complete trajectories contain about the same number of left and right turns will occur most frequently. that more balls land pretty much under where they started and a lot less on the edges, meaning that one type of rebound has a lot more than the other.
We don't know where a single ball will land, but we can say something about how they will all behave. Now the actual probability that a single ball will fall into one of these slots follows what is known as a 'binomial distribution'. But there's a nice thing about math, the central limit theorem, which tells us that, under a large number of experiments on a large number of objects (like 3,000 spheres), a binomial distribution approximates a normal distribution that you see here on the See board drawn.
But this Galton tablet not only shows the Central Lim's sentence. It has a ton of other cool features. Take a close look at the pens, for example.
You will see hexagonal tiling with numbers. That is the Pascal triangle. Let's build the Pascal triangle ourselves.
I happen to have a nice set-up here: a triangle with 1 2 3 4 5 rows. Now to fill in the Pascal triangle, start at the top and enter the number 1. Great, now the rule for filling in the remainder is that you take each point and add the two numbers that are on top left and top and right.
So for this cell we have nothing plus 1 which is 1 and for one we have nothing plus 1 which is 1 Now below we have nothing plus 1 which is 1 but here we have 1 plus 1 which is 2. Now you continue this pattern ...
This is a 1. This is a 3. 3. 1.
Here below again a 1 and then a 4 and then a 6 and then a 4 and then a 1. You do that now long you want That is very cool. It shows us all kinds of nice things.
One of them is that the number on each square can correspond to a pin on the Galton board, and the number in that square tells us how many paths a ball can take to get to that pin. So when it comes to hitting the first eddy, there is only one way to hit that first eddy: you fall out of the funnel. But when you've done that, you can either go left or right, now to hit that vortex in the second row.
There's only one way to do it: you must have gone left when you hit the first pin. Same here, except you must have gone right. But when it comes to this pin I numbered 2, there are two ways that you can get there: you can either go left and then right, or right and then left.
Two ways. Now this means that when a ball reaches this third row, it has traveled one of one plus two plus one - four - unique paths. However, two of those paths lead you to this pen.
The other two will bring you here or here. So if you're looking to place some bets, the safest thing to do is to say that more balls go on that peg than the two outside. Now this pattern goes on and as you can see there are more and more paths down, but the middle goal is always served by the largest possible number of paths a ball can take, which means we should expect more balls to appear in the middle and less as we go further to the edges.
Tada! A normal distribution. But we're not done with Pascal's triangle yet. There are all sorts of other fun things you can do with it.
For example, let's look at the diagonals. Okay, I'm going to make diagonals like this and that's why I drew hexagons. So if I draw a diagonal from this first number, I now get a 1.
If I start at this number at an angle, I get 1 again. If I walk away from this one I have a 1 and a 1 that add up to 2. If I start here and go diagonally I have 1 plus 2 which is 3 and I'm going to delete that arrow because it's in my way.
Where's my eraser? Nice. You may already know the pattern if you're a huge fibbing fan ...
Just kidding, Fibonacci sequences.
This is what we're going to find here: 1 plus 3 is 4 plus 1 is 5 and of course we're going to build a beautiful Fibonacci sequence where each number is the sum of the two previous numbers. So, 1 plus 1 is 2.1 plus 2 is 3. 2 plus 3 is 5. 3 plus 5 is 8. 5 plus 8 is 13, and so on forever, no matter how big you make your Pascal triangle.
But that's not it either! The Pascal triangle creates something even more amazing and helpful. This represents and gives you, line by line, the sequence of coefficients in binomial powers. Let me show you what i mean.
If you have a pulse now and are breathing, then we could all agree that binomial forces are one of your favorite things. A binomial is a an expression with two terms in it.
For example '7xz
An aspect of 150 degrees between two planets. The quincunx is thought to be one of the most important minor aspects. It is valid with an orb of up to three degrees.
Hey guys. I'm Justin from americantrucks.com.
And welcome to our utility build here with the F-150. Now what is a utility build? Well, to get a better idea of it, let's break down the meaning of the word utility. And when used as an adjective, it means useful in that it can perform several different functions.
That's the goal here today with our 2016 EcoBoost rig. This article isn't going to be about how to build a work truck because the reality is that an electrician uses his truck differently than a plumber who then uses his truck differently than a carpenter, so it's not the best idea to have one Build all-encompassing workloads. Instead, we build the Swiss Army knives from F-150s.
Well, remember, guys, the truck we use, the 2016 SuperCab F-150 with the six and a half foot box. Yes, it's already raised slightly to the fuel wheels and tires by a Zone Lift kit in addition to it, but try not to pay attention to it because the reality is the whole part you've chosen for this build will basically go with everyone 2015 and newer rig connected. We have some parts that would be a little smaller by and large, some parts that are going to play a bigger role, but overall, guys, this build is the sum of all of its parts.
So let's get to work. Well my buddy Nick and I just finished the Barricade Rattler Side Step. Look at these guys, man.
Very industrial looking, 14 - stamped steel, such a sturdy step, and you have traction here over the length of your cab, which I really like, and 15.2 cm wide on top of that. You don't have to worry about losing your footing, especially on a rainy or snowy day.
In all fairness, these things feel pretty sturdy overall. I mean, 220 pounds of solid muscle and twisted steel that don't even move these things a bit. But even for the rear passengers you have some grip there and even with the doors closed, which can sometimes be evidence of an extra grip, and they're still n ice so if you ever have to go up on the roof you have some And again, I like those little nubs on the step very, very solid.
And definitely a lot of support for a size 12 shoe. I really like these steps, about $ 300 for the pair, and they're super easy to install which is nice too, but we have a lot of stuff going on. In fact, the bulk of this build will likely be found in the bed area, so let me stop talking and get started.
All right, so Nick and I are busy installing the Hauler Racks 1000 pound aluminum bed frame here for this utility build, and frankly, folks, I can't think of a better part for a build like this than let's face it, you can do a million different things to a shelf like this one. If you're a carpenter, general contractor and haul lumber, ladders, plumbing, or whatever on the shelf, or use it for the family weekend, throw a canoe, kayak, whatever is on top of the rack, and you you still have our entire bed for mulch, material, whatever the case, it really creates a lot of space and just makes the truck a bit more versatile. I also like that because you can throw a toolbox into the mix if you want and move the rack around on the bed a little.
You're not really chained in one place so very useful rack, again 1000 pound capacity, you can throw anything you want at this bad misbehave thing, heck, throw it in there too. Get it out of the truck a bit, but frankly a very nice rack. One thing to mention though folks, this is a drill-in option, and yes, these things are made of aluminum, which brings us to our little science lesson for today.
Since this is a drill shelf, you need to watch out for something called galvanic corrosion, especially with an aluminum truck like I don't want to use raw or uncoated steel studs with an aluminum bed. Bad things happen when it gets wet a and that's exactly what you want to avoid, especially with your brand new truck. So the solution is to either use similar materials, i.e. an aluminum screw in an aluminum bed.
The problem is that aluminum screws really don't hold that much weight, so the solution is HaulerRacks gave us some galvanized stainless steel hardware for this bed frame. It's the next best thing. It should help prevent the galvanic corrosion that we want to avoid.
So Nick and I will finish installing this thing. We'll be there in a moment, but then we have some other small and useful pieces for this build that you should check out. Well folks, as you can see, the 1000 pound capacity rack of Hauler Racks is now in place without our utility build, but we've gotten to a little conundrum here, tossing stuff on this thing.
And I know we're not doing each other a favor with this 10 inch lift on our F-150, but it's a problem many of you might run into at home too, if you want to throw a few things over it luckily we threw the rattler side kicks again, that certainly makes life a little easier, or, god bless you, you can try to climb the 35 '. That could end badly, especially with a slick tire, so the next best thing, try it guys. Amp Research Bedstep2, this thing is great, especially on the six and a half foot bed box.
Five and a half footbed, you might have a little more Access thanks to your sidestep, but this thing solves a common problem, so come over here, toss your things on the counter, get everything out of your bed-mounted toolbox, and it really makes life a whole lot easier without doing any truck yoga gotta, as I like to call it, when you're done with this, just kick it up and out of the way. I dig this thing up really a lot. You can mount it on either side of your truck.
It's universal, so if it makes more sense to have it on this page for the toolbox for reasons or whatever, it absolutely can, and on top of that it backs up to £ 300 backed by a three year warranty, and it's enough for , again a size 12 boot to fit comfortably there. You can also adjust it on the bracket. So here we have the 35 'boot again, it made a little more sense for us to step it on this side, that's what we did, and once it's stowed and out of the way you can barely see it.
So overall a smaller chunk with the utility build, but definitely something that will be needed once you toss a rack on this thing, especially for my raised F-150s out there. Our next part to come up with is something I'm really looking forward to. I handpicked it for this build and I think you will find it too, so let's start installing that thing.
So that's the part I was really excited to show you guys on. Nick head off on this one Thing one thing, it's the Viair Onboard Air System used on virtually all '97 and newer F-150s, from air horns to air suspension for the rear end. If you haul a lot, you can re-inflate some tires.
If you travel a lot off-road, you can ai r down, air it up again, no need to stop at a gas station, or you can even power some smaller air tools. Two and a half gallon tank, 150 PSI max build thing in mind, this was a perfect fit for our build. Now we're actually installing it under the truck.
You could mount it in a couple of different places. If you have an enclosed tool box in bed, maybe up there. What we actually do is install it where the spare wheel was because we have a 35 'here.
The stock spare wheel is useless to us anyway, so at some point we'll need a full-size tire for the bed and that makes for a perfect position for the compressor along with the tank itself here. So again, really excited to get this part in our utility build. Nick will do a great job of finishing this thing and we'll show it in action whenever it's all done.
Well, check it out guys. Nick absolutely killed installing the onboard air system here for our service. You saw where the tank and compressor were in the spare wheel area, but look at that, how cool is that? He actually stuck the clutch out of the small spare wheel keyhole area.
Very, very cool stuff in flush, but for this article we just wanted to show you how it all works. We also have our display and counter here. It's that easy to turn on your compressor.
Now you can actually install that in the cab if you want, but personally I and Nick both agree that installing it on the outside of the truck, especially in the back, just makes more sense because you will be here when you are join your airline to do whatever you need to do, which leads us to our next point. This thing has a million and a purpose. Yes, of course it makes the most sense to ventilate tires, and the company sees it that way too. how they ship it to you with a chuck at the end of the airline.
However, we pop that sucker off and screw it to a standard quarter inch coupling and that basically opens up a number of possibilities for this thing. Throw on your favorite air tool, you can change a wheel really quickly if you want. Basically, the sky at this point is the limit of the air chuck on a quarter inch receiver and coupler.
So really, really useful thing. I don't have this for my truck now, but that kind of convinced me I have it so I might be looking for one of these systems to have my own rig at home, but again very cool, great to have a utility build like this but we have a little bit of work to do here and then, from there we will start moving into the truck and then up front and will wrap up that sucker. Now towing and pick-up trucks pretty much go hand in hand, so in our utility build here it made perfect sense to add some kind of towing device specifically for this build, which is why we're talking about the Weigh Safe hitch.
Now this is their 2 inch receiver version, 6-i nch Drop, which made a lot of sense for our little lift here with our F-150, but they make these things in a number of different configurations, from 4 to 10 inch drop and different capacities of the 10,000 pounders, so we get a 2-inch and a 2 and 5/16-inch ball, so the biggest thing to keep in mind when towing for the casual tower is the tongue weight, because too much or too little can equate to disastrous results and basically leave you very insecure while you are out and about. In the past, to find out your tongue weight, you basically had to do some math equation to keep track of everything. Well, Weigh Safe has a really cool solution here to help you quickly and quickly determine if your rig is safe to tow.
So basically determining the amount of tongue weight here with the built-in scales can help you eliminate the trailer sway and make for a much safer experience overall. Now if you have too much tongue weight your lo the ad is too far up front, you are writing it right in the red there and that's not what you want because that is obviously very unsafe so it just helps owners like me or like you who are watching at home and who may not be hauling all the time to see if your cargo is safe to haul. So very nice product, billet aluminum for the shaft and everything here, stainless steel ball, again a 2 inch stainless steel ball for about 8,000 pounds, we now have the 10,000 pounder, it's a 2 and 5/16 option, and if you can put that guy in, be smart of course, use a locking pin because someone might see this and think, 'wow, that's a nice catch' and try to take it away from you unless you have the right stuff.
So really, really nice product, if you are towing a lot for a utility construction it will help you get the job done and get it done safely. All right so we have cool things backfiring, we still have one cool thing to show you guys up front, but in the meantime we think we'd pit stop here and just show you some cool parts that we really like and that add extra functionality to the interior of your F-150, the first of which is very cool. This is the Du-Ha underseat storage box.
It's got a pretty cool name, but it's a very functional, very versatile part. You can put all sorts of things in this thing, tools, recovery equipment, cleaning supplies, and for all of my hunters out there actually fit two long rifles in this thing. Of course we don't want to bring a real gun for HR purposes, so I got my trusty Red Brought Rider and as you can see it fits pretty well who has a lot of junk in the back seat of my F-150 that tends to roll around a lot and land on the ground, so it's a great option for a little over $ 100 To keep order.
You have them in a range of different colors to suit different interiors, and they actually stick to the metal seat belt mounts in your rig so you don't have to worry about that thing sliding all over you, and when the seats flipped over, very nondescript. Big fan of the Du-Ha. Also, folks, well, listen up, it's a truck, it's a utility build, you get things dirty, muddy, snow, sand, whatever and do to keep all that junk off your carpet, what better way to toss an X-Act contour mat in from the aisle? overat Husky.
I have had the exact same liners in my personal F-150 for a couple of years. Really big fan. They fit the floor perfectly, laser measured, made in the USA, all that and more.
Really, really good product, and again only about $ 100 for the front. Speaking of the front, folks, we have another part that we need to show you up there. I'm a huge fan.
And this will be our utility build, so let's get to that. Last but not least, for our utility build, check out this thing folks, the Iron CrossRS front bumper EcoBoost rig, but it packs a whole lot of functionality. Why? Well, take a closer look and you will see that the 2 inch Class 3 receiver basically opens up a world of possibilities for this thing, snow plows, winch mounts, load carriers, steps, you can even tow this damn thing flat if you can want all thanks to that two inch receiver this bumper, they even throw a couple of holes for your faceplate if your state requires one.
But other than all that functionality, just a really, really cool looking piece, right? ten-gauge -Steel here too, totally bulletproof, god help the deer you run into on the highway with this thing in place because it will surely be at the end of this fight and then in that really cool textured satin black -Powder paint to be done draws with it is that it's a really sleek steel bumper. You see some of these others out there and they're huge, just sticking out everywhere, bulging, that's not really the case here with the Iron Cross. Can be put together well, fits very well like a factory part, and is simply rock solid.
So again a very cool looking bumper and one that offers a ton of functionality and the perfect cherry for our utility build here with our EcoBoost. Well folks this will round out our utility build here with our raised EcoBoost F-150. Now, with a combination of pretty simple parts overall, I think we've made this rig a bit more functional and versatile, and therefore should be better equipped to make it easy about any task you may face, be it work , Game, or maybe a combination of both.
Now, if you would like more information on any of the parts listed in this build, please feel free to check it out on our website. Of course, subscribe to our YouTube channel, if you haven't already, and for everything about F-150, here at americantrucks.com.
