Re: Grand Trines - Good or Bad?

In my opinion, fire or air grand trines sound much better to have, because they give you a lot of passion, drive and make you great at communicating; while water tends to stagnate and I'm afraid my grand trine could do that to me. (I also have no fire signs in my chart)
All aspects in a chart, whether so called easy or harsh, are inherent in one's nature and are at their best when working with and not against each other. That can take experience over a l-o-n-g period to figure out .

A water [grand] trine can, indeed, possess emotional insight and empathy , yet it still depends upon which planets on the grand trine are where. Not every planet is 'comfortable' in a particular element.
Cancer influence is caring yet can be 'needy', with its easily (read) hurt feeling nature not too deep from the surface. Scorpio influence goes deeper and into the abyss of emotional significance, whilst Pisces is renowned for its oceanic tendencies to 'escape' everday life in preference to that of its own ungrounded creation.

Water is the strength of the imagination as one perceives reality around it, yet it is not always based upon its actual manifestation. For that it also needs the influence of active Fire, physical Earth and mental Air. What can happen when water, as dominant element, meets up with Fire, Earth, and Air? It can overflow, flood, and drown, leaving Fire, Earth, and Air very little possibility to offer their influence. There can be little 'real' warmth, practicality, and thought influence when dealing with life's situations perceived through inner feeling senses.
THAT's where the so-called harsh aspects are effective in adding other aspects (no pun intended) to the grand trine's inherent perception. You have already mentioned the elemental influence yourself.

Does the water grand trine shun or work with them?
