The Trine occurs at a 120° Angel and is dubbed the most fortunate out of all Aspects in Astrology. However, all aspects, placements, Sabian degrees in astrology have positive and negative meanings to them.

Occurs when planets are 4 signs apart

The orb allowed for trines is 7 degrees, so they can occur at 113- 127 degrees, with the tighter orbs being 118-123 degrees.

The Trine represents the natural flow of energy between the involved planets.

This aspect happens when planets are in the same element, i.e.,  Water, Fire, Earth or Air, bringing opportunities, innate creative talents, and luck.

However, too much of something good can become harmful.

The Trine brings about ease that can be taken for granted at times, leaving talents unexpressed.

During ancient times people believed Astrological Trines led to laziness because good luck was regarded as evil in those times.

However, most of the time, the Trine manifest the best potential for involved planets.

If you put your mind, willpower, and practical actions into whatever you want to achieve, because there is no tension with trines, squares, oppositions and quincunxes are often brought to your attention.

Whereas trines just go with the flow, so they need to be actively applied, you’re gifted with easy interaction between two planets (or more) with a trine, but because of this, you may fall into your comfort zone, where the planets and house involved are concerned.

Trine’s supply you the talent and creativity, but you must use it or lose it; a trine can be compared to pressing play on your favourite online streaming service; it’s easy to watch the movie right.

But how about making the movie, you have to organise the actors, directors, camera and sound people and everyone else you need to make the film, this takes work.

The Trine can provide the energy to do this, especially if Uranus and Neptune are involved, but Saturn and mercury mentality and discipline must be used to bring your visions into reality.

How to manage this energy

The best way to manage the energy of the Trine is to own it, do not overdo it, thinking everything will fall out the sky to your hands, as the Trine does not work like that, not in the long run.

Because even fate needs a helping hand, and your luck can only find you if you are open to and work hard to achieve your goals and life purpose. Do not push your luck too far!

I recommend you develop proper self-management and awareness skills with Trine energy, yes you are blessed, but even blessings need hard work to become fruitful.

A trine involving planets in water signs could make you a natural intuitive and psychologist, while a trine involving air signs could give you a good intellect with the banter to match.

The Planetary energies in the trine aspect work effortlessly together, balancing each other out, highlighting the superpower of seeking equilibrium in your daily life.

The powers of Astrological Trines

The closer the orbs involved in a trine, the stronger this aspect will be in the Natal chart; sometimes, 3 or more planets can be involved in a trine.

Also, having other aspects such as opposition or conjunction will adjust the dynamics of Astrological Trines.

In fact, an Opposition or square aspect will give the trine aspect the gumption- get up and go- motivation; it needs to get started and take action in a natal chart.

The 12 houses of the zodiac naturally form Trines, such as the 3rd house and the 7th house. The 5th house and the 9th house, and the 8th house with the 12th house. But planets must be in them all to activate the trine aspect.
