The Lucky Aspect Or Too Easy? What Is A Trine In Astrology?

What is a Trine in Astrology? They are 120° aspects between the Sun, Moon, planets and other astrological points. They are said to be “good,” easy” and “flowing”.  The so-called compatible signs are all in trine to one another. eg;  Aries trines Leo. Both are Fire signs. If you had a planet at 21 degrees in Aries and a planet at 21 degrees Leo, they would be trine.

You can find your trine aspects via one of my Astral DNA reports. They’re listed in there or, if you just have your birth-chart from somewhere, look for the little triangle symbol.

So, find your closest trine. Think about whether this is something you take for granted or is it a blessing you give thanks for every day? Trines are such a strong point with many people that they do tend to be relaxed about them, assuming that everyone has similar assets. Trines work so well that they can make you lazy. The square energy, which we have to fight for, is what we appreciate. If you have Venus and Neptune, you won’t need to try hard to be ‘arty’ or ‘spiritual.’ Magic and Creativity run through your veins. You could imagine that everyone has your gifts and that people who don’t pick up on what you’re seeing are somehow deliberately messing with your mind.

Magic And Creativity Run Through Your Veins When You Have Venus Trine Neptune

But then say you have Mars square Saturn, you’d struggle with authority and financial security. The stuff that other people seem to glide on through in elegance would be like a treacherous electrified swamp to you. And you would see other people’s ease with bureaucracy or finessing their finances as being like a nigh alien-level talent. That is until you had honed your Mars Saturn square till it worked for you.

Appreciating and maximizing the good effects of your trine aspects is a fantastic way to work your astrology. Identify your trines and keep them in mind as your blessings. A Trine in astrology is where the two distinct energies work together so well that each makes the other stronger. And it is such a harmonious relationship that you are not aware of any effort there. Accentuate your trines!

I have 2 trines under 1degree – and the closest of 2 is Moon in Kataka in VIII/ Chiron in Pisces in IV. Second is Sagg Sun on cusp of II trine Aries Jupi in V. Second one is working but can’t tell is it because of itself or because my Sagg Sun.

so i have 5 trines to be exact & 3 of them are my A.C which is Aquarius, 1 to venus in libra, 1 to jupiter in Libra, 1 in saturn in libra
The other 2 that i have are my North node in Leo, 1 to neptune in Sag.
the last north node to mars in sag

I have a trine from my moon and saturn in Aquarius (3rd house) to my north node in Gemini (7th house.) My north-node in Gemini means my destiny is to communicate, and the trine means that my emotions (moon) and my work (saturn) support that destiny and make it easier. In your case, my guess is that the north-node in Leo is about creativity, especially in the performing arts. Since the 5th house is ruled by Leo, that emphasizes the reading. The trines from Neptune and Mars in Saggo mean that your dreams (Neptune) and your activities (Mars) work together… Read more »

Epona in Cancer is also trining away with Chiron 1°50. I find this stuff appearing in Aquarius interesting…as that’s where lilith also lies.

Those trines of Sun, Moon and Chiron, Asc., sound really lovely FireTrine. The way you can break it down is to look at the archetypes of the Sun and Moon (male/female, animus/anima) and the trine meaning they are in harmony and balance. Has to do with the “will” (Sun) and emotional responses, habits, etc. (Moon) working well together. Then bring in Chiron, healer, teacher, and Neptune, otherworldly, inspired (many interps for Neptune) and get a feel of how you possibly express those things in a harmonious way. You could for example use these trines in an intuitive way expressed toward… Read more »

Being your closest trine, Mercury trine Jupiter is about higher education, foreign correspondents, writers – esp. those involved in spiritual and philosophic subjects and matters pertaining to the Ninth, Third and Sixth houses.

Shows a broad mind, tolerant and quick to comprehend. Natives communicate with ease and confidence.

From my The Astrologer’s Handbook (an oldie but a goodie).

I have this trine too and can say I find most of what this says to be true. Believe in live and let live and have pursued higher learning in many ways (books, massage school… PRAYING…lol)

Trines can be exciting, but they need to be used. Because they come easily, people can get complacent about them. Nep ASC is an idealistic outlook, compassion, imagination. The merc MC would be communications in relation to your career. You’re probably quite diplomatic and easy to relate to.

My closest trine is Saggo ASC with Aries Lilith exact, tying in Moon and Circe both one degree off Lilith in Aries.

I guess that explains my heart on the sleeve emotional honesty, which I very much value in others as well. And I’m a witch and a bitch. No apologies.

He probably doesn’t see them often and wants to make the most of the time. And you haven’t known him long, have you? It might make it awkward to include you at this stage of the relationship. Besides, they might be hardline Baptists or Catholics or something, and who knows what kind of longstanding family dynamic it is. Don’t be too hard on him. Yet. And take a cold shower…

Does a trine that also trines something else make a tripod? I’ve got quite a few of those. Do trines with asteroids count?

Part of fortune trine mars – I have to work for my $ ? – tell me something I don’t know lol.

Neptune in scorpio in 6th trines midheaven in pisces – don’t ever fart near me I’m gas sensitive – I have woken up twice under a general during operations and it’s never worked out well for the man holding the knife – I like to think I got him in advance for the bill.

In between still studying this negligence stuff I noticed that what appears on the additional table chart as -0°28s appears on the short report as Moon Trine Saturn 0°28…so maybe whatever all your quirky little ones are the significant ones too? Maybe do a cross over to your short report to see…it’s right down the bottom.

I have moon trine venus which has a triangle with an s and 1 next to it – I think that is my closest trine?

also mercury trine jupiter (3)
and Mars trine jupiter (2)

all others are over 5.

which extended chart option did you mean mystic?

December 17, 2009 7:29 pm

mercury & mars trine jupiter seems very auspicious – do you make your $$ or gain fame from communicating? Moon & venus you exude femininity? Beauty moves you? Those seem like some lovely trines you have going on – what houses? Mine are confusing let’s talk about yours they seem nicer lol.

well I am an artist and yes I do love communicating through words too – I work in a library. merc is in my 3rd house, cancer, as is my moon. I love travel, visual art, natural beauty and cooking. lol.

mercury also trines Uranus in scorpio 7th – but that is not a close trine.

I have been told I am very feminine, some say strange for an aries.

December 17, 2009 10:18 pm

this is guesses but would mercury trine uranus in scorp in the 7th make you able to communicate easily and faster than maybe others would about the deeper issues in relationships and contracts? You get to the point suddenly and plumb the depths? Startling revelations – maybe men would refer to it as ambush lol

“0” technically means it is the most exact trine.

I love what you said about being INFP means “feelings and vague impressions are everything!” I am an INFP too. I am wondering if having a lot of trines means you are relaxed, mellow, and easygoing. That’s how INFPs roll. You have Mercury (Communication) trine Saturn (Scholarship/Study) and the signs involved are all Air signs. With a Libra sun, Art and creativity might play a big role in your life. My guess is that you work hard at producing/studying the arts (probably literature) and that you teach writing and that you have been reading till your eyes bulge every day… Read more »

Jupiter trine chiron is. are you good with physical healing arts? the virgo toro thing is very earthy and chiron is a healer and teacher not just in pain. You must have gifts with healing I think.

Have Barbara Hand Clows “Chiron” book handy.

She says Jupiter trine Chiron activates near perfect perceptual skills from birth which will cause early brilliance and artistic success.

“Native is irresistable and finds an easy nich for successful operation. The world desires this native, but lurking deep within is a great occult comprehension of reality which may or may not manifest”. Apparently, there is a gift deep inside…

Do you feel there is something inside postmodern? Sounds quite wonderful.

I have Chiron 9th trine Mars exact on Asc. Doing massage is a form of healing work for me.
