How it Feels
Imagine driving down the highway and suddenly you see a road block
up ahead. You slow down, you stop, you turn around, and you go
back where you just came from. That's what Retrograde is like.
The energy associated with these changes of direction varies from one
planet to the other, but in general, the interests represented by the
planet turn inward. It's a time to think and ruminate and
maybe even work hard. The most noticeable thing during these days is that
things related to the planet in question just stop working the way they are
Things get broken, communications get lost, feelings get hurt, people get
frustrated. It's usually a good time to work on old projects that
have been put on the back burner for a while.
Sometimes people you haven't seen for a long, long time reappear
The effect is most intense a few days before and after the station.
Once the planet gets rolling in the new direction, things do smooth out.
But the focus changes, though, and so will you -- you'll be going in a different direction, so to speak.
