About 4 Signs Apart/Trine matches

Ah, home sweet home. The trine sign mate has the same “element” as yours (fire, earth, air or water), creating an unspoken kinship and harmony. At last—you don’t have to constantly explain yourself.

You’ve never felt so comfortable, so understood on a core level. This is the person you can burp and fart around, or pee with the door open when they’re home. But don’t invest in a wardrobe full of elastic waistbands just yet. In trine relationships, you’ll need to preserve some mystery to keep things exciting. Make sure you stay active and on the go, and don’t do everything together. A little autonomy goes a long way to keep the passion alive.

Why you’ve attracted each other & what there is to learn

  • To feel at home with yourself and a mate
  • How let down your guard and be yourself
  • To be understood without explaining yourself
  • To rest and relax together
  • To have a best friend and partner in one

4 Signs Apart/Trine relationship essential skills

It’s so easy!

But, we must slap on the warning label: Easy doesn’t necessarily mean better. Just because you can drop the niceties and let loose around each other—burping, farting, yanking out wedgies and skipping showers—doesn’t mean you should. Sharing an astrological element (fire, earth, air or water), as trines do, can also be “too much of a good thing.”  The trine relationship offers the opportunity to reward the folks who treat us best––just because. 

Make an effort (even if you don’t have to)

The trouble with things that come easily is, we tend to take them for granted. Have you ever run around like a madman trying to please a difficult, demanding person—someone you don’t even like that much? It’s funny how we spend time appeasing bullies, sucking up to a–hole bosses, or bailing out that troubled relative yet again. And who gets shuffled to the bottom of the list? That devoted friend who’s always so understanding, loyal and unconditionally loving. Often, this neglected soul is four signs away from yours—a tried-and-true trine. In trine romantic relationships, you’ll need to preserve some mystery to keep the spark alive.

Bust up the cosmic clique

Cliques can easily form when you’re four signs apart, because it’s just so damn easy and fun to be around each other. Trouble is, other people can feel excluded from all your inside jokes and conversations, or underrepresented in your planetary parliament. When it’s time to vote on vacation spots or to make a business decision, those poor non-triners are always outnumbered. If you’re surrounded by signs of your element and everything feels super insider-y, push yourself to be more tolerant of those who don’t share your tastes, worldview, humor and values. In a trine love relationship, it’s so easy to be together, you don’t really take a break. Then one day, you realize that the whole “absence makes the heart grow fonder” thing has its merits. 

Introduce another kind of energy

Too much of a good thing can just be…too much. There are four elements in the zodiac for a reason, and it’s because we need this dynamic balance to create a healthy whole. Although we may gravitate to people of our element because we feel at home, too much of that creates cabin fever. Just as traveling to a foreign country carves a new dimension into our life experience, hanging with signs outside your element makes you more worldly and tolerant—a citizen of the universe.
