Some folks might think “Oh Goody. A boat load of trines. This is my lucky day.” Not necessarily. These transiting planets could be hitting your chart in a stressful way. Even if they were hitting your chart in a way that was easy that’s not necessarily a good thing.
The trick about trines is they make folks lazy. For example: I knew a fellow who had 13 trines in his natal chart. Good luck seemed to surround him. If he was about to be kicked out of the house by one gal he’d have landed in the lap of a female passer by who would take him in as a “wounded bird”. If he was running out of money a friend would point him to a job. When he got the job he’d become the favorite of a supervisor who would kick him up the ladder. The problem was he was not accustomed to ‘working’ for the things he got. Stuff and opportunities just fell into his lap effortlessly. So he always figured things would be effortless. That’s the trick of trines – no preparation for doing the hard work. Anything that required the slightest effort made him complain endlessly, to himself, under his breath, Mercury in Scorpio helped him keep his complaints to himself.
Penitentiaries are filled with folks with tons of trines in their natal chart. Why? Because everything was so easy for them that when they had to work for a thing they just didn’t know how, or didn’t want to, and they took the easy route – a life of crime. So they are in jail but still lucky.
Another example: Another trine rich guy I knew did time because he was cut off of a trust fund, basically for being shiftless even after getting a college education. So he went around to hotels pretending to be a famous person, “The Count or Barron of some far off country”, getting free room and board. Hotels will give comp rooms to noble born people so they will tell their friends what a nice place it was.
He tells me, “I tried to find something to complain about every day, because that’s what rich folks do. One day everything was perfect, room, food, service, just perfect. I thought to myself what can I complain about? Then I turned off the light and saw the water from the pool reflected on my ceiling. I called the front desk to complain about that.” And he laughed merrily at his antics. Well that life of crime caught up with him and he ended up in State Prison and what happens? He gets a job typing for the Warden because with a college education and being able to touch type he was valuable for the Warden. So this guy gets a special cell, with privacy curtains, and the pick of pretty boys in the yard. Luck can still happen when in prison. It was difficult for him when he got out though. But his luck will carry him along because he’s not going to change. No motivation to do so.
What one can do with a boat load of trines like today is absolutely nothing, because trines don’t motivate us to do anything, they just are there. If you stayed in the house, didn’t contact anyone, didn’t make an effort on a project, all these trines would just fade away and you’ll have nothing to show for them being there.
If you wanted to take advantage of their energy then I’d lay money on the Earth trines. Virgo wants things to be organized and with Mars has the energy to do it. Pluto in Capricorn says purge the stuff that is not working or has no further value out of your life. Sun in Taurus with Moon in Virgo says make the home a place of comfort and practicality. But if you didn’t want to do any of that work you can just do nothing and the trines won’t mind.
