Retrograde motion refers to the apparent backwards motion of the planets through the zodiac from our perspective here on Earth. This retreat has different effects in a natal chart as opposed to when it transits your chart. Natal retrogrades usually manifest as a weakness of that’s planet’s energy for that one person. During a retrograde transit, however, that planet’s energy wanes for everyone, causing more caution to be taken. We’ll look at some example charts and some of the current transits to really understand retrograde planets.
Garrett Hall is a self-taught astrologer from Harlem, NY. He became interested in astrology when it seemed to answer many of the questions he had in life that neither science nor religion could answer. This interest has grown from a pastime to a passion as he read more charts and started to see the magic with his own eyes. Now, his dream is to spread astrology to as many people as possible to help them innerstand themselves and take control over their lives.
