The Grand Trine is an aspect pattern that links together three trines creating a triangle shape. As you can see in the illustration below, if we use a natural chart beginning at Aries on the Ascendant, trines take us to the cusp of the 5th house and the cusp of the 9th house. Trines generally then have a flavour of these original signs. They are associated with ease as they flow unhindered. We call them ‘soft’ aspect as they don’t require us to do any work. We step on the trine and slide easily to the place where it leads without stopping or thinking.
As Trines take their essence from Aries, Leo and Sagittarius energy, the Grand Trine is associated with high idealism and insight. It’s a visionary pattern, creative and self-expressive. People with a Grand Trine may well exhibit qualities of being self-assured, full of faith, confident and can have a habit of being in the right place at the right time.
