Here’s a Word for You: Quincunx

Somehow I got on this [tag]horoscope[/tag] e-mail list a while back.  Usually I ignore the e-mails but today decided to take a look and came across a word I had truly never seen before: quincunx.

Dutifully, and feeling rather inadequate, I looked up quincunx in the dictionary.  Here goes the definition: “an arrangement of five objects, as trees, in a square or rectangle, one at each corner and one in the middle.”

If you’re a Capricorn and come across a quincunx today, turn the other way.
