Retrograde planets in astrology

Before talking about retrograde planet,we will talk about what is retrogression ,retrogression is a state in which planet is so closed to earth,it feels like planet is going away from earth, we can assume this by say ,two car is moving ahed in same direction and one car is moving at 60km/h and other car is moving at 20km/h parallel so what we see that the other car is going backwards but in actually it moving ahed ,but it feels like it is going backward,so we could explain it by relative motion the retrograde state,retrograde doesn’t mean reversal ,it feels like reversal.

In Astrology, chart of an individual are significantly affected by the spin and movement of the planets. Most often, the planets rotate on their forward path.Then there’s a brief period, called the stationary period, when the planets slow and appear to have stopped moving altogether.
Having a stationary planet in your chart is generally quite fortunate. Stationary planets emphasize the planetary influence
From the earth perspective, planets appear to be moving backwards after resting in a stationary position. This celestial phenomenon for astrologers means that the planet is in retrograde.
Planets in retrograde can have an reverse effect on the world, sometimes reversing situations and changing our feelings and regular activities. A planet’s retrograde influence upon an individual’s aggression,emotional or physical communication.

we could say retrograde planet is more focus inwardly ,very powerful because of it’s ability slowly progressing ,that’s why we can say slow moving planet like Saturn and jupitar when retrograde are so powerful because they get “chesta bal” out of general we can say a person’s prosperity,his identity,his higher self,his purpose comes late in life especially after 30’s , because he confront lot of confusion,doubts himself,disruptions,setbacks,obstruction,reality,hayway,haywire and heaviness so thinking why this happens simply to teach the realities of life and to learn the higher truth and belief ,actually retrograde planet is good for spiritual growth especially jupitar retrograde is best for spirituality,in case if we think about jupitar retrogression ,person wil be confused about his dharma ,he feel like whether it is right path or wrong path he always feels like that ,search here and there collect lot of wrong information and knowledge from here and there ,in other hand Saturn retrogression could give earlier responsibility in life a lot of karmik thing on every action he performed.

In other words we can say if the planet is not following the path of Sun then It is said to be retrograde,what is Sun in astrology spirituality,confidance,soul,personality so if planet is not following the sun path then then he will losing it’s track of being spiritual,confidant,he will doubt all the things and will not get sun’s proper light to get attached from his soul,more often than not,it has been observed that the person detached from himself in case of more and more planet retrograde in his chart.retrograde planets have connection with past life and karmic things ,whatever happens to that person in retrogression phase or dasha person feel heavy karmic backlog,heaviness in that period like Past life connections,person meet suddenly to stranger and get familiar with him in retrogression period.

In retrogression period person accumulate a lot of pending karma due to retrogression,it has been seen so many times that person stores a lot of karma during retrogression phase and think it over while it is stationary and act upon it when it is in direct motion ,so in this way we could say person should store lot of good karma during planet retrogression and execute it when planet is in direct motion . retrograde planet means it’s been teaching and pushing us for something right we must know so we should learn from it .

We can conclude that retrograde planets gives result but with hurdles,setbacks,confusion and delay.and always remember situation feels like reverse but it’s all illusion not real,not true and we should understand it that it’s not for always it’s for sometime to make us feel some aspect of life that not everything is as smooth as it feels like,we should look into our innerself our higher beliefs,identify ourselves. If the delay is happening let it be,if confusion is there then don’t worry ,if too much thought processing then so be it .


Sun and moon are never get retrograde .they are known as luminaries.
Rahu and ketu are always retrograde ,that is why they are known as karmik planet related to past life .
A lot of new thing come as a surprise in planaetery retrograde phase.
So don’t be bother of illusion,try to observe and realize optimistically ,every event and happening have hidden purpose.
