In Western astrology, the moon is considered one of three important points in the natal astrology chart. The “big three” are Sun Sign, Moon Sign, and Rising Sign. The sun represents your personality and motivations. Your rising sign represents how other people see you.
The Moon Sign represents your emotional depths. It reflects your relationship to intuition, creativity, and your subconscious. When other planets form aspects to your Moon in your natal astrology chart, it can affect how and where the qualities of your Moon sign show up in your life.
A trine is one of five major aspects in astrology. It is typically an easeful aspect where the energy flows nicely between two bodies. Trines occur in natal astrology charts when two objects are 120° apart. Because trines are four signs apart, they generally occur in signs of the same element. This is part of what makes the energy flow between the two bodies.
Trines can be up to 10° off and still be considered a trine. The difference in degrees is called an orb. For example, a trine with an orb of 5.4° would be 5.4° off from being an exact trine.
