Definition of Direct
When a planet is moving forward at its normal speed, it is considered "direct".
Most of the time, planets move direct (forward) at their own pace. At certain times, planets slow down considerably in their natural orbit. This makes them appear to move backwards, causing a retrograde effect. Direct planets produce normal energy, while planets in retrograde produce a ‘backwards’ energy, affecting the areas of our lives ruled by that planet.
