The Grand Trine is related to —you guessed it—the trine aspect.

But this is a turbo-charged trine as it involves planets sitting in each of the related elements at around the same degree forming a triangle shape in the natal chart.

Just like the trine, the Grand Trine of planets is considered to be a harmonious aspect as the elements work with one another in a positive way. This aspect pattern also includes one of each of the modes, which in turn creates a sense of balance as it isn’t overrun with one type of quality which could challenge the flow of the energy.

Of course like any of the aspect patterns, if you have three planets at about 120° apart but with a slightly wider orb at the end or beginning of each of a sign, there is the potential for an unrelated element to be part of the aspect pattern.

This can then reduce the sense of flow about the aspect pattern, but does not prevent the positive communication between the planets. It might introduce a duplicated mode which could colour the ‘flavour’ of the trine and make it a bit ore noticeable.

I say noticeable because the challenge with this ‘positive’ or ‘harmonious’ aspect is that it provides no tension at all and someone with these aspects can find themselves unchallenged by the planets in this configuration, and quite possibly unaware of the potential contained in this aspect pattern.

They could be the type of person who coasts through life being in the right place at the right time, always showered with lucky moments and meetings which provide them with the good fortune many of us would envy.

This aspect pattern can promote a sense of inertia. Why push yourself if you don’t have to? Why work hard when opportunities land in your lap? Why take advantage of opportunities when you could just “Netflix and Chill” at home instead?
