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.
