A Composite Grand Trine is the mother of all relationship stabilizers. In this configuration, planets in all three signs of the same element in a composite chart (read this PDF to learn about composite charts) form a harmonious angle (approximately 120 degrees) with each other. A magnetic, closed circuit of energy is created and the resulting relationship can become an island for two people. This sounds ideal, but the inherent harmony can become too much of a good thing. Energy in a trine follows the path of least resistance, so a stable but repetitive cycle dominates the entire relationship.
The Composite Grand Water Trine
Think of a cross between an oasis and a whirlpool. This couple is so emotionally connected they can draw complete sustenance from each other. They not only share each other’s joy and pain, they are each other’s joy and pain. Let’s say the trine consists of composite Saturn in Cancer, Venus in Scorpio and Moon in Pisces. Saturn in Cancer can give the relationship an “us against them” attitude. The restrictive qualities of Saturn combine with sheltering Cancer to provide a bulwark against the outside world. The trine to Venus in possessive Scorpio can indicate controlling and/or exclusive love for each other. The Moon in Pisces (fantasy) hooked into Saturn (reality) can mean that this couple creates their own dream world. What was comforting can easily become stagnant.
The Composite Grand Earth Trine
If a Grand Water Trine is emotionally binding, a Grand Earth Trine is binding, period. Here is the relationship that is so grounded it seems to be made from concrete. In this example, Mercury is in Taurus, the Sun is in Virgo and Mars is in Capricorn. Mercury in survival-focused Taurus trine the Sun (identity) in finicky Virgo means the relationship evolves obsessively along conventional lines. Where will we live? Who balances the checkbooks? Mars (energy level) in structured Capricorn gives the relationship ambition. This couple maps out where they will be in 5, 10, 15 years. They work as a team and build their financial future or get divorced but remain bound by support payments and joint accounts.
