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.

Mutable Grand Cross
A Grand Cross is a planetary alignment in the astrology chart. It consists of four planets at 90-degree angles with each other and each being in a different astrological quality. Every sign of the zodiac is either cardinal, mutable, or fixed. Therefore, a Grand Cross happens when all four planets involved are in the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. This brings a very different energy to the Grand Cross than say a Cardinal Grand Cross or a Fixed Grand Cross, for the mutable energy is probably the most congenial of the three, even though Grand Crosses can be challenging enough in and of themselves.Read the full Mutable Grand Cross definition
