Retrograde

Definition of Retrograde

When a planet slows down considerably in its orbital path, it appears to be moving backwards, or in retrograde. Planets in retrograde influence the same areas of our lives as they would while direct, but in a backwards, mixed-up manner.

Most of the time, planets move direct (forward) at their own pace and exert their energies as usual. A planet in retrograde motion exerts its energy on more personal areas of our lives, and its energy is much slower.

Talisman

A talisman is any item that is carried by a person to help to protect them from harm or enhance their good fortune. Nearly any symbol can be used as a talisman. You can make one yourself or have your priest or magical person like a shaman make one for you. They can be simple, or ornate. The magic is in what you believe, not what the talisman does for you.
