The Quincunx / Inconjunct Factor

The quincunx or inconjunct as it's otherwise known is an aspect of 150 degrees. Most sites I've run across have similar copy pasted info regarding it, however I recently found a website by an Alice Portman describing the quincunx degree more in depth. (I won't link to the website because my anti-virus warned me about visiting it, so I looked at a google cached snapshot instead, but you can google it if you want.)

I found her information interesting regarding the aspect:

The quincunx aspect is a little like a bridge between signs that are different by element and modality. Therefore they allow the person to have a rather quirky, flexible approach to situations that may cause puzzles or problems to those who don’t have planets in these signs. For this reason it often appears in the charts of those who are skilled at problem solving.

Quincunxes often describe a sense of humour – the ability to see the funny side of life in almost all circumstances – so they regularly appear in the charts of comedians. This is particularly emphasised if the quincunx is involved in a Pythagorean triangle (three or more planets in a square, quincunx and trine interlocking aspect) the type of humour is shown by the planets involved in the configuration.
And she continues discussing other matters including travel, death & love:

The potential for Long distance travel is almost always shown in the chart by a quincunx, either through transits, progressions or directions involving a planet in the 9th house or the ruler of the 9th house. It shows so frequently at times of travel because travel itself requires you to be flexible and open to changes

The quincunx aspect is almost always present when there is death as death also describes a period of considerable change both for the person who dies and their family and friends. The quincunx will involve the eighth house or the ruler of the eighth and the house that describes the person who dies. E.g. if there is a transit of Jupiter in the 4th house making a quincunx to Venus in the 8th house, which in turn rules the sign on the cusp of the 4th house, then a parent is likely to be the person who dies.

Home moves also almost always have a quincunx transit, progression or direction as does conception and childbirth.

It can even show up when you meet the love of your life as this is likely to completely change your life.
So, how accurate is this info? Has anyone seen this aspect contributing to the aforementioned descriptions in their charts?? Curious!

And should should 2 degrees be the max orb for an aspect like this??
