- direct motion
- stationary motion (planets from the point of view of the earth don’t move)
- retrograde motion (planets from the point of view of the earth move backward)
Retrograde planets bring retrospective and the possibility to review the events and insights expressed by their energy. Energy of the planet turns inward and is expressed differently than it is in direct motion.
Modern astrologers have begun to notice that its energy has a positive impact on individual’s personal growth, because the retrograde planet brings to the surface unprocessed experiences from the past, especially when it transits the natal planet or an angular point of the chart.
In the interpretation of retrograde planet, we must be vigilant with:
- the symbolism of the retrograde planet
- the symbolism of the sign through which it passes
- the importance of the house through which it passes
- if a personal planet or an angle point is located at a degree where the planet rotates, then a planet or an angle point is strongly emphasized.
