A trine is a 120-degree aspect between two or more planets in the same element. It is considered a positive aspect because the energy flows with ease.

Trines in the natal chart show that the native has fierce determination and will step up to any challenge without hesitation.

The rare grand trine is a harmonious triangular formation of three planets that are three zodiac signs (or 120 degrees) apart and in the same element, either fire, air, earth, or water.

Pros and cons of the grand trine in air

The grand trine aspect is generally a lucky aspect. Those born with the grand trine in the birth chart may seem to get through life easier than others.

However, this can also breed complacency. 

Pros of the grand air trine

These natives are excellent communicators. Whether they are public speaking or just chatting one on one with someone, they know how to get others to open up and share. Air signs have a natural gift for expressing themselves and they can easily sway people with their thinking process.

Gifted writers usually have multiple planets in air signs but they can become proficient with an air trine. Gemini is the magician with language and having it in their chart will help the natives express themselves on paper masterfully. As they get older, they develop their craft and become more adept.

Networkers are born with this trine placement. They know how to charm people and use it to their advantage to get to where they want to be in the future. With the sign of Libra, their cool and calm nature can make anyone warm up to them. Libra knows how to make people comfortable and even trust them.

Known for their charisma, those with air trines usually leave a positive impression on the people they meet. The native with the air trine has all the essential tools needed to shine and dominate the spotlight.

Because the air element is focused on thinking, it is not surprising to meet plenty of intellectuals with a grand trine in air. Gemini usually knows a plethora of random subjects, and Aquarius is also knowledgeable and curious about many topics. Libra is studious and an overachiever. These placements thrive in educational settings.

Cons of the grand air trine

Air signs are notorious overthinkers. Therefore, those with the grand trine in air could live in their heads. They tend to be consumed by their thoughts and will overthink and analyze a situation.

They need to understand how to go with the flow and not create so many scenarios at once, especially when multiple planets are in Gemini. 

Their connections may be viewed as superficial. They will rarely show their true self to others.

Relationships and friendships can feel shallow with this sign. Air signs protect themselves and will not allow others to see their vulnerable side. It will be tough for anyone to see the emotional side that someone with an air trine has. The relationship will feel artificial, the more that someone tries to get to know them, especially if the native with the trine is not interested in cultivating a deeper bond.

Air signs do not like to put their emotions on display, so they could appear cold to others especially if they are not fond of you. Because air signs tend to live in their head and will not acknowledge what is going on in their heart, it could frustrate their friends and partners when they do not share their feelings.

Although the grand air trine native might prefer to rationalize their emotions, they only warm up to people they trust and will let them see their most vulnerable side.

Notorious for unpredictable behavior, these signs will not be afraid to ghost or vanish when they notice something they do not like about someone. The native will prioritize their needs and not consider the feelings of others. Instead of challenging or starting drama, Aquarius and Libra placements will prefer to disappear to protect their peace.
