Sun Trine Aspects for Each Planet in the Natal Zodiac Chart
In astrology, aspects are angles that form between the planets on an astrology chart. The chart is a 360° circle. Each of the 12 signs represents about 30° of that circle, and the chart is also divided into 12 slices that represent different areas of life called Houses.
A trine is a positive and easeful aspect that occurs when two planets or bodies in a chart are 120° apart. The energy flows easily in a trine because the planets are in a sign of the same element.
It is rare to have a super exact aspect of any kind in an astrology chart. Because of that, all aspects, including trines, have what is known as an orb. The orb refers to how exact any aspect is. The more exact the orb, the stronger the effect of the aspect. For most aspects, an orb of up to 10° is acceptable. However, some astrologers have different opinions on the largest maximum orb that still results in the aspect. Either way, a trine with an orb that is 10° (meaning the trine is 10° off from exact) would be weaker than one that is closer to 0°.
Trines are one of five major aspects. The other major aspects include:
There are also several lesser-used minor aspects including:
- Inconjunct (Quincunx)
What Does the Sun Represent in Astrology?
Your Sun placement on your natal chart is one of the “big three,” along with your Moon and Rising signs. These three signs make up your core being. Many astrologers believe the Sun is one of the most important placements. It represents your main motivations in life, your ego, and your overall personality. It also represents where you shine in life. It is your main essence and what makes you different from other people.
What Happens When There Are Sun Aspects in a Natal Astrology Chart?
Aspects with the Sun tend to be stronger than aspects with other planets in a natal astrology chart. These Sun aspects shine the sun’s light on the other planet involved and enhance its properties in your chart. Additionally, the other planet’s properties can have a strong bearing on your core being.
The signs and houses involved in the aspect also have importance. For example, something trining a planet in the 4th House will likely affect your home and family life more than other areas of your life.
Sun Trine Aspects in Astrology
Nothing in astrology is fully determinative, at least by modern astrology theories. There are infinite ways that astrology can play out. It is best used as an explanation for certain things and a tool to figure out how to overcome challenges. Modern astrologers tend to see it as a psychological tool that can be used for self-improvement and self-awareness. Even so, astrology does have a way of telling you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear. Either way, always take things in astrology with a grain of salt. If something doesn’t resonate with you, feel free to throw it out and keep only the things that feel helpful to you.
